Hello and Happy Labor Day!!
Today I am featured at my good friend Sheila's BLOG!
I made this set of wine glasses to donate to a very worthy cause. I met a wonderful lady who organized a Women's Night at her children's elementary school where I was a vendor selling wine glasses last year. Her friend recently was diagnosed with ALS. They are having a Spaghetti Feed/Silent Auction on September 28th at the Fire Union Hall on 60th and Grover (Omaha) to help raise money for medical expenses.
For more information or to help, go HERE.
I added some bling to the base of my glasses. I used red, black and clear gems and clear tiny beads.
I put Beacon 527 on half of the base and put my bigger gems down first.
I filled in with the smaller gems using a pair of tweezers to help. I then put adhesive on the other side of the base and repeated.
I put the small beads into a paper bowl and used my hand to press them into the empty spaces.
I let the glasses sit for 24 hours and then shook off the excess beads.
I recommend hand washing only!!
As a crafter, I love making things for other people whether I sell them or give them away. I was very honored to be able to donate these!
The ice bucket challenge has been going around and I was challenged by 2 people. My son Tanner was also challenged by 2 people. My helper Kylie was challenged by one of our daycare moms (same lady who challenged me too)!
We did our challenge together after school with the daycare cheering us on!!!
