A creation, a winner, and my Blogaversary!!

Today is my one year Blogaversary! Whoo hoo!!  I have had so much fun sharing my creations over this past year! Thank you to everyone who supports and stops by my blog! Without you, I would not be able to enjoy my hobby so that I can share!!  Before I continue with yesterdays winner and the candy you can win today, I would like to share the project I mentioned about what you can do with your Prima Flower bottles if you don't want to throw them away! 

This week was Teacher Appreciation and we had something different we were to send to the teachers everyday this week.  One of the days was something sweet and yesterday was some school supplies.  I have seen some glasses recently that had a small window of chalkboard material on the front for writing your name.  I decided I could do the same or something similar as a gift for the teachers. 


I bought a can of Chalkboard spray-paint and cut out a template using my mega nestibilities curvy frame.  I used masking tape to hold the frame in place and cover the glass so not to get paint anywhere else.  I gave it couple of coats and let dry. Once it was dry, I peeled away all the tape and the template.  The paint has a tendency to get underneath the template, but I found that nail polish remover and some Q-tips worked great to remove the excess you did not want.  I filled the candy jar with M&M's and the Prima Bottle with some different pencils I picked up at a school supply store.  On the candy jar, I added some ribbon and tied a stick of chalk to the front while on the Prima jar, I added some ribbon that says 'Thanks' and a felt flower by Petaloo with a crystal brad.  Just really simple! You can do so much with with either project but I have twins, so that meant 4 projects total! I am into simple! LOL!!   I hope you enjoyed these projects! It is a good way to do some recycling!!

  23. Happy Blogaversary !

    Goodness, this would make a wonderful Mothers Day gift to myself! Since hubby has been out of work for almost 4 months, there isn't any $$ in the budget for scrappy goodies! I'd be delirious if I won!

    Thanks for the chance!

  32. Happy Blogaversary Deborah! And thank you for the alterables. I was so shocked to see my name listed. Almost missed it because I was too busy thinking about your terrific teacher project with the chalkboard ink. Such a wonderful idea...now the question is where in the garage might I have a can of that wonderful stuff!

    My cats respectfully ask you to draw my name once again from the pile of entries so they can skip last minute Mother's day shopping. Dead mice and other cattly mediums of exchange just don't bring in the bucks anymore like in the old days (in their dreams anyway - lol!) And Mommy's been good about buying them cat food in these lean days and skipping the treats for herself....

    Of course Mommy (me)is just greedy enough to want to play with new toys all on her own - LoL!

    Hugs and blessings and don't let the twins run you ragged come Sunday on your special day! Hmmm...twins might be twice the work but also twice the loving so it sounds like a good deal. - Jean

  33. Hi Deborah,

    Here's my "twin" subscriber entry. In the spirit of childhood and blog candy devotees everywhere let me simply say...Thank you for the generous gifts for your celebrations and of course....Pick me pretty please pick me....I've been drooling over this set of Cammies since last fall and Just Rite has been on my wish list at least that long!

    PS: The cat's have promised you first pick of any hairballs, feathers or lizard tails for craft projects if you pick their mommies name once again. (I guess you gotta be a fur face to understand fur face humor - I'm just glad I don't currently have a sheep or a dog since God alone knows what they might try to trade!)

    Hugs and blessings and Happy almost Mother's Day - Jean
