I haven't lost my mind, I've just misplaced it

Okay, really, I do remember that I have a blog and I also often remember that I have a vinyl lettering business that I’m trying to plug, but somehow I have had a blog blockage (Blogage?”--I’m sure it’s a common ailment that will soon be making its way into the medical journals). Anyway, for now check out some holiday ideas. Plus, check back soon (very soon) for HOLIDAY SEASON CONTESTS where you can win actual STUFF.

Beautiful nativity scenes can be done in black or white vinyl and applied to glass blocks.

Craft stores are even selling blocks especially for decorating projects—there’s a hole on one side that will allow a string of lights for a magical effect or they can be filled with small ornaments, glass pebbles…whatever. Each scene done in vinyl is $6.00. Glass blocks can be found at most craft stores (I found the best price at Hobby Lobby; they are even cheaper at Home Depot and Lowe’s, but you’ll have to drill your own holes).

I'm excited about the possibilities of glass blocks. In one example I saw, they had filled it partway with sand, placed a shell and some colored glass alongside a beach photo, then in vinyl lettering put a phrase across the bottom of the glass saying Family fun in the sun. Or you could make a bank out of it and put some fun lettering on it that indicates what the person is saving money for.

I am so excited about these. I just have to figure out how many I want to do!

This is our picture too. It's sad to see these on here. Many hours and time and money go into our pictures and examples. Please don't copy our ideas or sell them as your own. Especially, do not use our pictures. Thank you.
