Everything is better with Glitter....even

The Doctor.  As in Doctor Who. 

  A few weeks back a craft show customer asked if I could create a set of Doctore Who themed glitter wine glasses for her.  Using The Enemies file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon and The Doctor file, along with a couple pieces of clip art, I was able to come up with the following.




 The Tardis, Sonic Screwdriver, 3-D Glasses
 Delete! Cyberman, Exterminate! Dalek

 Sayings, Don't Blink! Weeping Angel

All in all I think they came out pretty cute.  There is one that I am not extremely happy with hence, I did not post it.  I am not too entirely sure yet but I am thinking that I might exchange the bleh glass (Gallifreian) for a glass that has all the enemies sayings on it.  To craft or not to craft...

Our little crafty Christmas Tree

  When we found out we were moving to Germany there were a lot of household items we opted to store stateside.  One of those items was our faux Christmas tree.  Fast forward to September and I asked my FIL if he could build me this Wooden Ornament Tree as seen on Shanty 2 Chic, for a craft fair that I had in October.

  Here it is December and our DS has been asking my DH when were going to get a Christmas Tree.  My DH and I talked about getting a live Christmas tree and even debated about purchasing a 220V faux tree just to use here in Germany.  In the end we decided to utilize what we already had on hand.

  I used 9 strands of faux green garland and wrapped them on the ornament tree to resemble somewhat a small tree.  One that our 5 & 3 yr old were excited to see and help decorate.  It is not the best before and after picture but here it is:



  What do you think?
