Too much stuff!

Hi, haven't been on in a while. I've been working steadily on putting items on my bonanzle page. Also, I've inherited a ton of new craft supplies from my mom and am trying to figure out exactly what I'm going to do with it all!

Scrabble Tile Pendants

I had seen these pendants all over etsy and thought.....I could do that!

I first started out using small wood tiles from the craft store so I would not mess up any of the actuall Scrabble tiles that I had. I got my wood Scrabble tiles from a friend.

A lot of people are using pre-printed images that are specially made to go on the scrabble tiles but I wanted more of a challenge so instead I looked through magazines I had laying around my house and cut interesting images out of them to size for my tiles and then glued them on. I then used modge podge to cover the image and seal it. After that dried I covered the front with a clear resin (took about a day to dry) and sprayed the back with clear spray. After those dried I used a strong glue on the back to adhere the silver bails. And that was it! Super cute pendants!

First post!

This is my first post of my new blog! So really what that means is right now I'm talking to myself.....nothing new there!

I've been crafting up a storm lately and have set this blog up to share my crafting experiences and new projects I'm working on. Enjoy!
