Frosty the Lighted Snowman

I know it is not Thanksgiving yet, but I am getting excited for the holidays.  I have been able to create a few things so far this year.  I hope this trend continues and I will share them with you as I go.

I have always loved glass blocks, it probably stems from my love of Architecture and Interior Design.  Did you know my undergraduate degree is in Interior Design?  Well now you do.  I have to admit I have not worked in this field for close to twenty years but it was my degree.  Anyway back to glass blocks…. I have been seeing all the ones people have put lights into and used vinyl on them to make great home decor items.  Well this past weekend I was able to go to a Craft Warehouse for the first time.  I loved it as there were so many great craft items on display of what you could make.  One of the things they had were glass blocks which has a plastic bottom which would allow you to fill the inside ~ ingenious!!! Here is my creation:

I the glass block would work perfectly as a snowman. I designed my own face  and cut it on vinyl using my Silhouette.  I saw an adorable felt hat there but it was too small so I made my own.  I found a how to on the web and modified the directions so mine would be a little smaller.

I also had just seen the CTMH video Craft your Curls which I posted last week about using fabric to create flowers.  I told you I would post something I designed soon and check out my cool flower using the Sparkle and Shine textiles.  I only used two layers to create my flower as the video shows three.

Happy Crafting!
