And with that title, I am now singing “Anatevka” in my head and finding myself a bit distracted from getting down to writing. Oh, how I love the soundtrack from Fiddler on the Roof!
In any event, here I am, finally! Sorry it’s been way too long between posts but LIFE has just been way too busy lately.
First off, the winner of the handmade chevron and crystal mezuzah…comment #1 Dena from the fabulous Jewish style blog, Chai & Home.
Second, I just have a to share a fun card I made yesterday for a friend’s birthday. It was my first attempt at a “shaker” card where the glitter or confetti actually shakes inside a window. My base is none other than my favorite Curious Metallics White Gold cardstock. I then cut out this fun wine bottle shape, which I modified with a window, from Curious Metallics Gold Leaf using my Silhouette. Then I adhered window plastic to the bottle, arranged foam squares around the edge to make a frame, filled it with metallic confetti and adhered it to the card. I will say that the confetti did sort of stick around the edges so not sure how to avoid that but overall I am quite pleased with the result. For the sentiment I stamped the fun “L’Chaim” stamp I found on ebay and then embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder.
Finally, I promised you at least one more giveaway for my blogoversary and since April isn’t over yet, there is still time for one final celebration of the fact I have been blogging for an entire year! I am so excited about this I can hardly type! The lovely Lauree at 1-800-Dreidel put together the most fabulous box of goodies valued at just over $55 to send to one of you, my dear readers. There are stickers, cupcake toppers, ribbon, cookie cutters, a paper punch, beads and more! It’s so fun! You’ve heard me mention 1-800-Dreidel before – they are one of the few places that cater to Jewish crafters and have a great selection – it’s my go-to source for wine charms and the customer service is fantastic!
