gettin crafty up in here

my mom=crafty. 
me=not so crafty. 
my roommate=crafty!! [whew, i'm still exposed to a crafty bone.]
so what did we do tonight? upon shalie's wonderful idea, found from a DIY on another young lady's blog, we got crafty. find this craft on shalie's pin board or over at the cheese theif.

 the finished products:

so, basically what we did was take nail polish (the thicker the better!) and dripped it into a glass about half full of water. we learned that you need to move quickly because the polish actually dries very quickly on top of the water! to make more of a design in the dripped nail polish we drug a tooth pick through it. next we dipped the glass ornaments into the top of the glass and the nail polish just stuck right to it! super cool :) the cheese thief also has videos posted on her tutorial and some other awesome ideas, so make sure you check her out!

until next time...
