About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Love Ewe Mug

I decided to put a new spin on my stamping creativity.  While my best friend, Denise, was here visiting me...I wanted to make her a special gift that had some personal touch to it.

I had her pick out 4 of my stamps that she really liked (Unity only). I then stamped the images on a piece of paper, cut around the image (leaving a border), then taped the image on the inside of the glass mug.  I used my ProvoCraft Chizzle-It and engraved/etched the images.

Luckily, her mug made the trip home and she is enjoying her soda or water from it.  I hope you enjoy my project and are inspired to create something new.

Note: There is black paper placed in the mug to show the etching better.
