Finishing Up

Here are the final exercises that I wanted to complete from the class I took from Misty back in December.

In this one we were to do 4 different poses on the same page. It was an interesting exercise to say the least. I kept getting paint on ones I had finished. I get pretty messy when I am painting. It is sort of funny that you really don't see the big flaws in your work till you see a picture of it.  I am happy that these are all finished now.  I am ready to move on to other things for awhile.

I signed up tp take a class for the Cricut cutter at my local craft store.  Today was the second class out of 4.  The more I use this machine the more versatile I discover it is.  Today we learned how to etch a pattern on to glass.  First we cut out a pattern in vinyl and then used the negative image on a piece of glass and then added the etching material and transferred it to the glass.  It was really simple. I also discovered besides using vinyl for lettering and etching, I ended up taking the image and putting it right on the cricut as a decoration.  You can also make your own stamps and magnets and stencils.  I think it will take awhile to run out of things to use this machine for. Tomorrow I'll show some of the things we have made so far.


  1. Love your girls!! I know what you mean about being messy when you, too!

    You really got my attention when you said you can cut stamps and stencils with that machine!! That sounds interesting.

  2. Wow - I never thought of etching or making magnets. I've used mine for stencils (love that - need some other lettering styles). Can't wait to see what you came up with!

  3. sounds like someone is having fun ;-)

  4. You are one busy girl...this machine sounds like fun. So much to do and so little time!
    Love this! Mary
