I have missed you! Work has been so busy that I am so tired by the time I get home that all I do is veg out. Sometimes I will grab my ipad and blog hop, but truly for the past few weeks I am doing good to do that. I will miss a couple of days and then try to catch up all at once in an hour, LOL Not the best way to enjoy a blog session but I can't stand it if I am away from you for more than a couple of days.
I did make a few new bottles before I got so busy, but have just now gotten enough time to take enough pictures to actually make a post. I just realized, however, that I didn't take photos during the creation process. RATS!!
Oh well, without further ado...I give you..bottles in blue.........
I bought this gorgeous ribbon at Wal-Mart. I love Wal-Mart. I know it's not "cool" to say that, but I do. We have a nice one almost right across the street from my work so it is so convenient. And you can get just about anything there. Food, clothes, crafting supplies. I haven't gone into Michael's or Hobby Lobby yet so I may change that tune but for now Wally world is my go-to place.
My bottle is a schnapps bottle given to me because I have begged my friends for their empty bottles and jars. I modpodged the ribbon around the bottle three times. Then I painted the bottle with the silver glitter craft paint. I kinda left it a little translucent. But I love the sparkly glitter!
Then I did the same thing to a jelly jar and the small jar is a bottle of room service mustard. I added jewels to give it a little more bling. We girls love our bling, don't we?
I cut out some of the flowers from the ribbon and after I painted the tops with the silver glitter paint I mod-podged those too. I am not crazy about the large jar lid so I added some jewels to it too. It helped some but I wish I'd just done the simple flower.
Okay, I know my photos aren't the best....I work in my basement (no light) and that is where I take my pics. My computer that I use for blogging is down here too. So it just make it easier when you have very little time, ya know?
I think these will look pretty as part of a Christmas vignette. But they will also be pretty for anytime!
Can you tell I really like these? Not to brag (really I am so surprised by how much I like them) but Ithink they turned out really cute!!
I will be linking to some parties on my sidebar. Most of you are familiar with them but I am always surprised when I hop around a party and usually find a blog or two that I fall in love with. If you haven't been in a while, well I am inviting you on behalf of the great ladies who host these.
Thanks for stopping by to see me. I welcome any and all comments and if you have suggestions on how I can improve in crafting and picture taking I am open to those too!!
