Here are some of my projects that I worked on for this year. Some were gifts and some were for the Holiday sale raising money for the scholarship fund. The shovel was for Sam's girlfriends parents. I had less than 3 hours to paint it so he could go to her house and get it wrapped. I had it all done, all it needed was the clear coat spray. I grabbed the can and went out to spray it, all of a sudden I screamed "Oh no!"...Sam came out and said "What's wrong"..I proceeded to tell him, that I had grabbed the wrong can, and that it was not clear coat but red paint!!!!! He couldn't believe it...we were running out of time..he said "can't you fix it?" Well I did what any mother would do, and did my best to repair the mistake I had made. So when he presented them the shovel, the white paint was more on the pinkish tone...oh well they liked it and enjoyed the story that went with it.
The lightbulbs have been a hit the last few years. Here are just a few of the ones I had left over..I sell these to raise money for the scholarship fund in our son's memory. I'm hoping to have some new ones next year.
Here is a Christmas clear bulb that I colored the inside with reds and greens and gold and then on the outside I tried an experiment of using embossing powder...came out pretty good, still have to work on this idea a little to keep it precise if making more than one for sale.
