Got my MOJO back!

Do you ever have those days when you try to craft and your glitter won’t stick to your glue? Well, I not only had one of those days I had one of those weekends!!

I wanted to cut more glass to make some of these ornaments – look -

I’m going to my friend Julie’s later in the week for some sparkly yellow Swarovski crystals to adorn the tops. So far I’ve made these in medium ornament size, large ornament size, and a couple pendants. They sparkle!!
