My sister and I haven’t lived in the same city since the 90s.  If I had to do it all over again I might have tried harder to live closer to her.  But when I was newly married my husband and I moved to Texas and she and her husband moved to Washington State.  It’s just not close enough to jump in the car for a visit.  Last weekend my sister flew in for a few days and it was fun to hang out with my best friend. We even got some crafting done in the form of glass etching.

etching cream

I had a couple of glass containers and my sister, empowered by youtube decided to do give it a try.  We picked up some super cheap paintbrushes and some Glass Etching Cream ($10.99) at Hobby Lobby.  I cut out the words out of adhesive vinyl using the Cricut then weeded out the actual words so that we had the outline left to use as a stencil.


My sister brushed on the etching cream and watched it do it’s magic. Etching is pretty easy to do but super hard to get a good picture of.  I hope you can appreciate how pretty it is, though.


Check out youtube where there are a bunch of tutorials to get you started on your way.  Happy crafting!

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
