Snowglobes for you!!

It is that time of year again when you start to thinking about gifts for your special loved ones for Christmas!  What could be more special than a handmade gift!  Well, I have a treat for you.

My handmade snowglobes are one of a kind works of art.  They are made of paper, ink and acrylic and crafted with love! Each one takes about 2 hours to make and will last a lifetime. They fold flat for easy storage too. Yup! They fold FLAT.....isn't that awesome? Each globe comes with a lovely decorated storage envelope that ties shut with a ribbon. Below are pictures of the globes I have available. The engineering of each globe is absolutely amazing!!  

If you are interested in a particular one, please comment and let me know.  I can take PayPal payments and money orders. The price of each globe (including a plain white envelope for giving) is $15 plus $2.75 each for postage to those in the US.  No international as postage is too high.  If you are interested in more than one globe, the order can be combined and postage will be less.  So, hurry and get the ones that you like.  Only one of each design pictured is available.  As they are sold, I'll try to remove the picture.  If one happens to be sold that you want, please have a back-up selection ready as no more will be made this season!  There are duplicate pictures of some of the globes that are showing you the carrier/storage pocket or how they fold flat. Only pictures with descriptions are available.  When you click on each picture you can see them full size.

List your e-mail in the comments (they are moderated so I'll not publish your email) and I'll send you payment instructions.  OR you can contact me through Facebook.

Bisters for Friends

Bisters....not blisters!  I have had these Bister powders for quite a while.  Only used them once before and decided that it would be fun to play with them.  My friend, Penny, came over and she had the newer Ken Oliver Color Burst powders.  Bisters crystals are okay but I sure liked the Color Bursts better!!  I made five card fronts (four with the Bister crystals)....they still need some words.

I want some critique from you.  On the blue/green leaf sample, do you think I should color in the leaves in something like a light yellow/green or leave them the cream of the watercolor paper? 

Then I tried something that I thought would be neat.....FAILURE.  I put some of the Bister crystals on my watercolor paper, covered it with a damp paper towel and then misted it more.  The paper towel looked pretty cool...for a while.  I finally lifted it to look at the paper beneath.  It looked like I had done nothing.  Hmmmm.  So, I just misted it like normal and that is the red/yellow/blue sample.  Think I'll stamp a silhouette stamp in it.

These will all be made into cards that I will send to the ladies in my Young Living Essential Oil group as some happy mail!
