Trying my hand at vinyl

Trying something new again. I’ve never worked with vinyl before. Got a used Cricut and decided to play. The gray areas on the glass are etched from the back of the glass. The rest is vinyl.

Here are a few other first attempts with vinyl from this weekend.

Learning Something New

Trying my hand at Adobe After Effects. Attempting to teach myself. Boy have I got a long way to go….. Never believe an old dog can’t learn new tricks though. All a mindset. If you want it bad enough you can get it. This is sure to be fun once I figure out how it works….lol.

Bowl Potholders

 

 

 

 

 

It’s that time of year again. Time to start shopping for Christmas. The Bowl Potholders are great for everyone. Easy to use and keep you hands from being burned. Simply put your food to be heated in a bowl, put the bowl in the Bowl Potholder and put it all in the microwave. Enjoy easy removal from the microwave with no burnt fingers!

Easy Bowl Potholder is two sided, microwaveable, washable, reversible and reusable. Combine with a bowl, spoon, napkins and a can of yummy soup and these make incredible gift sets.

$12.00 for two or $18 for a complete gift set.
