Ippity Blog Hop 11/08 Staz-on on Glass

So I started out to do a card, and then decided I would sew a Thanksgiving runner for the dining table real quick.  I finished and told my girls 9 and 10 that they could pick their top favorite plastic cups,  I was going to get rid of the bin that held all their cups and they could drink from glass now.  They picked them out and place them in the cupboard I cleaned out. Now fast forward FIVE minutes, yes 5, I hear an awful crash in the kitchen.  A child has just managed to get a glass to drop out of the cupboard and shatter in the sink. Luckily I was able to save the plastic cup as they had not actually left the house yet. 

The sad news was this was one of my favorite glasses,  I started with 4 and I am now down to one. They were my Grandma's and they remind me of having breakfast with her.  I started looking at them closely and realized that there was an ippity stamp was very similar!  I grabbed my bit of burlap and two oddball glasses in my cupboard to test it out!  They turned out great!  I am going to get some yellow staz-on and make myself a new set of glasses and put the last original yellow in my china cabinent.




Supplies:
lavender staz-on
drinking glass
bit of burlap ippity stamp

What a very cool idea! Sorry about your glass. It is always a bummer when your favorites end in pieces.
