Add A Little Christmas Color

It’s been a busy week, I’ve managed to get a lot done.  Christmas is almost here, but there’s still time for a few last minute gifts, and a little more decorating.   I actually did some of these glass balls a couple of weeks ago, but I didn’t take photos of the process.  It was an experiment that I wanted to try, because I have several boxes of clear glass balls in my craft closet and I wanted to try the same process I used to make the colored glass jars earlier in the year.

As it turned out, they are beautiful!  I used one for the  Quick Christmas Ornament with ribbon in it earlier in the week, and I have a bowl full. I made a couple more to take a couple of pictures to show how to do it today.

You can check out a quick tutorial with photos at Colored Glass Balls.  Afterwards, you should probably pour yourself some tea (or really, it’s the season to indulge in a little Egg Nog!) and check out Handmade Monday and see what everyone else is up to. It’s the last one for this year, and I peeked and it might be the last one for a few weeks since the next 2 are Christmas Day and then New Year Day! So, better check this one out or you’ll be out of luck for a few weeks!  Oh, and if you really have some time on your hands, I have done several blogs this week with new crafts.  Yes, I know, that’s a record for me, but I’ve been quite busy, as I said!  And I’m hoping to keep up the pace!  It’s that crazy busy season.  Merry Christmas!
