More Christmas Prezzies

I am super behind on lots of prezzies...but these are super easy and super quick, and I think look super fabulous when done. These will be a present for my Secret Snowman at work. I will work on finding the link to the tutorial I found on these, but here's the basic how to: get clear glass ornaments at Michael's for cheap :), fill with about 20-25 drops of reinker, swirl around ornament (don't shake or you get bubbles), let the excess drip out by allowing the ornament to hang upside down, then dab away excess around opening, put in a bunch of glitter, and shake shake shake. Empty out excess glitter. Easy peasy!!

Here is a much better, in depth tutorial with pictures from the super talented Amy Rysavy!!

MIA again...

Apparently regular blogging is not my strong suit. LOL. Maybe in the new year I will try and work on that...once my stampin space is together I think that will help. I've been busy with work, Christmas prep, and being sick :( It's been a miserable week, but today I am starting to feel better and am coughing a bit less. I have a lot of Christmas presents still to work on, but thought I'd share these two Advent calendars I made for my sister and their families. Each box is filled with either goodies, a family activity, or a lil bit of money (there are several boxes with some money in it, the kids will have to pick whether to donate the money to their church or keep it, whatever decision they make, they have to choose the other option on the next money drawer). I am super excited with how these turned out!!
