Every Girl Should Take Edward's advice

One of the things I love about Twilight is Edward telling Bella that she doesn't see herself clearly. The implication here is that she has more to give and more value as a person than she knows. I remember life as a teenager and being unsure about a good many things about myself.

So we created the locker mirrors stickers. I believe all girls should see themselves clearly. They should see the magnificent creatures they are and the strong women they can become.

If you're interested in purchasing one, they are just $1.00 plus the cost of a stamp.

Girl Power!

Sweet Tidings

Crystal Effects has many uses, (I'll tell you my favorite one in a minute). I love how it creates a smooth shiny surface. It was the perfect accent for the glass in the gumball machine for this card.
I tried to get a close up of the crystal effects here. It wasn't the best light, but it was the best shot I could get.

Now my favorite use for crystal effects...

I had a cabinet door where the screw had come loose. We had tried putting the screw back in a few times, but it always worked its way out again. Eventually it stripped the wood inside a little. I remembered a tip from a SU! convention when I had a similar problem with the rolling suitcase/backpack they gave us. So I pulled out my crystal effects, filled in the hole a little, let it set up just a tiny bit and then screwed the hinge back on.

It hasn't budged since.


Let me know if you have another unusual use for crystal effects.
