Small Projects

This darling little frame took about twenty minutes to make last night... If you would like to make one for yourself or even a friend, here is what you will need...
An old frame
Cupcake baking papers
and a
Hot glue gun
All you have to do is twist the bottoms of the papers and glue them to the frame, until the entire surface is filled... Darling!
I found this idea here.

These water globes are a big favorite in our house, as we make multitudes of them throughout the year. Simply fill any glass jar with glitter, confetti and other fun objects. Then fill the jar to the rim with water adding a drop of glycerine to slow down the speed that the glitter will travel. Line the interior of the jars lid with a water sealant, and screw the lid onto the jar tightly. Allow to dry for an hour or so and... You have have yourself a beautiful water globe! These make wonderful gifts as well! Enjoy...

Lots of love in this little globe...

I love these projects and they seem too easy!

Also, I saw that you are reading "The Time Travelers Wife". It is a really good book. I don't know if you saw the movie and then decided to read the book. I have not seen the movie. The book is excellent though!
