Script Print Decoupage Vases

This once-Plain Jane glass vase (standard 7" tall) now makes a stunning display piece. The delicate script is printed on thin tissue paper, which is then carefully adhered to the glass before being coated with epoxy and sealed in acrylic.

This vase was done in pink but other pieces can be done in nearly any color. Display them in your own home or give someone flowers with a more personal touch. Since the glass interior is free of acrylic and epoxy, you can even use them as hurricanes for candles.

Each vase is just $5!

Upcycled Vinyl Record Bowls

Technological progress has left us with a long list of obsolete items that have gone the way of the dinosaurs.  VHS beat out Betamax only to be killed off by DVD. Now DVD is getting a taste of its own medicine with the introduction of Blu-ray. But don’t worry, Blu-ray will get what’s coming now that we’re moving into a future completely devoid of tangible media products. Running the same gamut of natural selection, eight-tracks gave way to cassettes that later gave way to compact discs.  

Among all these fallen technologies, one old dinosaur remains: VINYL! Unfortunately, like most dinosaurs, the vinyl records we come across today aren’t always well preserved. But just because they can’t serve their original purpose doesn’t mean that they should be abandoned!

For example, take these two records. Once upon a time they were bringing back the sounds of the Big Band Era. Mortally wounded in a spat with the turntable needle, they now live peaceful lives as display bowls. Keys, wallets, loose change, ripening fruit. They can handle it all, no problem.

Save the dinosaurs by adopting one today for just $3.

Knit Bag of Holding

Recently my dear husband asked me to make him a dice bag for his Sunday games. This is what he got (and he's very happy with it, and not just because he has to be).

Made from worsted weight yarn (in the color of your choice), this medium-sized bag measures roughly 6" in diameter and 6" tall. My biggest concern was being able to fit your entire hand in the bag with enough room to search around for that elusive d20. The bottom of the bag is done in a seed stitch to make it more stiff and durable while the body is done in stockinette stitch to allow for more stretchiness. The lettering was chosen by my husband but I could embroider a different design upon request.

Each fantabulous bag of holding is a mere $8! Make your gaming friends green with envy!
