Yes, that's right, my 11th month blogging hiatus has come to and end. I hope you are as excited as I am. I have been busy and a lot has changed in the past 11 months though thanks to Pinterest I have once again decided to make time in my life for crafting and creativity.
Last year I was lucky enough to get a few cans of spray paint imported from Michigan by my adoring family to fulfill my crafting needs. Spray paint is illegal to sell in Chicago. Whether this ban affects graffiti artist or crafters more is debatable. Though this year I have found a way around the law thanks to my other addiction, Amazon. I ordered a can of Kylon Looking Glass spray paint and four days later I was ready to attempt to make my own Mercury glass.
Chicago along with much of the country has had an incredibly mild winter (knock on wood) which is not only great for those with seasonal depression but also those with a spray paint addiction. I have been saving wine bottles for the past few months to take out all my spray painting aggressions on. Though after painting the 10 I had my thirst was not quenched requiring me to shamelessly rummage through my neighbors recycling bins in search of more glass to transform.
With a few bottles of spray paint and a few free glass containers you to can reuse recylebin goodies and create beautiful decorations. Or better of get drinking that wine!
