18 inches of snow later...

What a snowy weekend we had here in Minnesota!
I have lived in the state for 15 years and never experienced a blizzard like that.
Plows pulled off the road, gas stations closed, Mall of America closed, the Metrodome collapsed...
It was crazy.

Friday I was off work early so I ran a couple errands, including the grocery store where everyone else seemed to be.  Only problem, the store only had 4 checkout lines open, madness.
 The lines were so long and took forever to get through.
Once I was home Friday evening I didn't leave until Sunday evening. 
It was nice to be at home the entire weekend.
The house was cleaned from top to bottom and all laundry is cleaned and put away.

On Friday night I decided to make something with this pretty glitter....


and these clear ornaments...
Cullen needs some ornaments for his Christmas tree for next year!
mod podge
 plus
pretty glitter
equals...

glitter was/is everywhere!!
what's Christmas without some glitter though...

I think they turned out pretty good although I think I'll be buying the rest of his ornaments! ;)

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

Those are adorable, I might have to steal the idea! It was crazy here, my older two loved playing in the 4 foot mounds of snow in our yard! Boo to the dome and all the craziness of the Vikes game getting played tonight instead and in Detroit! Glad you had some fun with glitter, it is always so messy but so pretty :)

Kinsey Michaels said...

those came out soooo cute! was it a messy project? i'm guessing it could be contained though if you rolled the ornaments in a bowl or tray. i saw another ornament DIY somewhere where they took clear ornaments like that, but filled them with sequins!

Reading this gives me total déjà vu to the freakish snowstorms we had in PA last year. We were absolutely buried. It did force me to get lots done around the house though ;)

You’re so crafty and I absolutely love your pretty glitter ornaments. I love the one you made for Cullen. So sweet!

I hope that snow melts for you soon!
