Some of the things I have been working on....

Hi everybody!

A few people have asked to see some of the things I have been working on the past few months such as glass etched items, glittered wine glasses, etc., so let me know what you think.  The money is definitely in vinyl, glass etching, glittered wine glasses, etc., for me anyway, not so much in cards.

So glass cutting boards etched, wine glasses, beer glasses, salt and pepper shakers, pitchers, casserole dishes, all have been very popular along with glittered wine glasses either with vinyl or etching on the glass.  It is so hard to take good pictures of glass I have discovered. I have done all of this using the Silhouette by the way.  Also, I bought some new blades and a holder called CB09 for the Silhouette because I think Silhouette blades are crap, sorry.  I'll let you know what I think.  A friend of mine that uses these say hers has lasted a year.  What???  A Year?  Sold!  :)

This is what has been keeping me busy the last few months.  I'll still take orders but won't do this full time at least for awhile.  I am going to work on cards again.  I am also working on myself.  I started the 21 Day Fix program.  Have you heard of it?  It is a diet plan that helps with portion, eating better for life and workouts.  It's going really good so far.  I haven't had sugar in about 2 weeks.  I think I had sugar withdrawals because I was foggy, couldn't concentrate, so tired and I would crash after working out and eating.  My clothes are already fitting better.  I'll let you know my progress with this.  I need to lose about 40-50 pounds.  I am 45 years old so I figure if not NOW, WHEN??  So I at least have the mindset now to do it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Good to see a post from you again. Your projects are fabulous. You are very talented and I have always loved what you create. From your post, I gathered that you are in the process of trying to rediscover or reinvennt yourself. A little advice from someone who has been there. First. forgive yourself for what ever real or imaginary crimes you have done. Secondly, forgive the person or persons who have caused you so much grief. If you can make a conscience decision to do this, pounds of frustration will suddenly disappear. I don't comment like this on line but for some reason, I felt your pain and felt compelled to write this. If I am wrong, just know that I have always loved yor work and forgive me for commenting on something that I know nothing about.
