I have a very quick project to share with you today, and I also have an up-for-grab rak which went unclaimed previously. First I'll begin with my project. This was a plain Bic pen which took me less than 10 minutes to recylce:
And here's what it looked like when I finished:
Here's a view of the top of the pen:
The pen is actually silver in color. I painted the entire pen with Adirondack silver mixative,glued on and covered it with a diamond-looking mesh, and popped a rhinestone the top. I apologize for the glare; I couldn't get a better shot because it really does have loads of bling which made it difficult to snap a more decent shot. However, it really looks great in person!!!
I wish I'd had time to do these for Christmas presents! LOL! No matter, there're still many other occassions coming up for me to not miss an opportunity to pass these cuties out -- and they really are soooo easy!!! Next time I think I'll really embellish and bling them up!!! LOL! And how about my doing a matching book and box to put them in?!!! Don't you think that would be a great gift idea?!!!
Moving on now to the giveaway. Several weeks ago, I participated in a "Holiday Blog Hop" and offered a vellum and matching paper set which, unfortunately, has went unclaimed by the winner -- sorry:
I am now re- offering this paper set to some lucky winner and, again, you'll be selected by Random.org. You do not need to be a follower, you only need to leave me one of your wonderful comments to be eligible. The winner will be announced tomorrow before 5 p.m. central time and will have until the end of the day on Friday, December 30, to claim this set. Good luck!!! Oh, and did I forget to mention there's also a little secret gift that's be included?!!!
Well, I still haven't made it around to visiting everyone but I haven't forgotten you by any means! A little later, after I get the hubby fed and quiet, I'll be making more rounds.
That's it for now...
Love you, and I'll be seeing you!!!
