That’s what the forecast was for yesterday, and on the way back from the nursing home, by golly, that’s what we got! I thought we used to call that “sleet,” but whatever you call it, it was miserable — but it stopped by the time I got home.
Early this week my Stampin’ Addicts buddy Sara posted a bunch of charming holiday pins. I was so smitten with her idea that I whipped up a couple of my own. My only difficulty was that I have only a few stamps with holiday images small enough for these stones. (She used Jolly Bingo Bits.) Must buy more stamps!
If you try this at home, use Crystal Effects to attach the stone to the image. It did cause my markers to bleed a tiny bit, but I’ll bet you can’t tell! CE will affix the pins to the back, once I buy them, but magnets would be charming on these as well.
