I noticed I have another new follower and would like to welcome her aboard!!! I hope you enjoy visiting, come often; and, of course, if I can find you, I'll be around to check on you too!!!
Wow! The weather here today is great!!! After all the rain, it's finally cooled down; of course, the predicted temps for tomorrow is back to to 90+ degrees again, but I'm going to enjoy today! (Who I am kidding, I make the most of every day as often as I can -- LOL!)
And..., I 'm really excited with all the wonderful things ahead of me: my debut as a Sassy Designer where I'll be debutting on August 5; I'll be leaving out for the CHA 2010 Craft Show the end of this week -- YEAH!!!; and soon after the DH and I will be heading out for a much needed vacation break! (Oh-oh! I'll probably get behind even more; but..., I promise I'll catch up!)
Today I have an interesting little project to share. I was in a neighborhood Dollar Store yesterday and ran across some Poker Chips. I don't know why at the time they caught my interest, but some little "bug" in my ear told me I could do something crafty with them, so I bought them. Yep, plain ole poker chips ( I don't even play poker):
Anyway when I got home, I began trying to figure out what the heck I could do with them and this is what I came up with:
Needless to say, I'm quite pleased because I can now think of about a zillion more things I can do with them and the list is endless -- keychains, embellies, jewelry and more!!! A couple of these may end up hanging on a few of my purses!!!
Just think poker chips, small scraps of paper, paint, Stickles, Glimmer Mist, Crystal Lacquer, embellishments, or anything else you can grab within reach, and your imagination!!!
As an aside, my first attempt was to use embossing powder on the chips, but the heat gun melts the chips so you may want to avoid doing that.
Well, that's it for now and I hope you like my project; love you all...
I'll be seeing you!
