I hope you have had a lovely peaceful Christmas and everything went smoothly, unfortunately we had a few mishaps not least of all our cooker breaking down, luckily the christmas dinner was almost ready so we just had to have our vegetables just a little "al-dente".. So at the moment if we can't cook it in the oven or microwave the we have to do without..

Over the festive period whilst OH was snoozing I have been playing with some templates for decorating glass blocks, which then lead me to trying to decorate some plain glass vases you know the ones you get free with your bouquets and floral displays.

This is one that I finished yesterday, I used a 5" square glass vase, these are realatively inexpensive to buy but when you have finished they look really stunning, but beware it is addictived. I have been looking at mirrors and even my windows mmm.

I bought a roll of  "Readyroll Static Cling Window Covering Plain Frosted" from B&Q it was £9.98 but you get approx. 6' by 26" so absolutely loads. It is easy to cut and apply all you need it water and something like a credit card and you are set.

Oh! nearly forgot I also experimented by cutting it on a card with coloured paper behind, don't you think this would make a lovely gift with the vase and matching card.

My cutter files work on many machines. Such as the: Craft Robo, Klik-n-kut, Pazzle, Wishblade, Silhouette, Cricut. Common software used with these machines are: Funtime Scrapbooking, Pazzles, WinPC/Signlab, Inkscape, Illustrator, KNK Studio, Sure-Cuts-a-Lot, and Robomaster.
Don't forget to check back often for updates and freebies.
