My son Cory bought his first new car. It's it sexy? It's a Dodge Charger. He is doing really well on his job and will moving out August 1st to an apartment with a buddy. I'm happy for him and hope it all goes well and he doesn't get behind on bills. I really hope he finds LOVE.
I got busy yesterday and made these little charms. I think I got impatient and I only have a couple that actually turned out with no flaws. I rushed the diamond glaze and have a few marks because of it. Bummer! But it was all very inexpensive so at least it didn't cost much for the mistakes. I think I will try to antique over the glaze and salvage a few of the marks. (If they look distressed they might even sell better.)
Here is one that turned out pretty well. They look like little ceramic tiles but are actually Grungeboard. I distressed inked the background and then stamped an image. Then I diamond glazed the whole thing. I am planning on making bracelets out of the one's with 2 side holes and using the others for necklaces. My friend and I are going to try to do a local craft show in the fall so I'm making some things to put into it. I also checked into having a credit card machine. Does anyone have any experience with getting those? I'd like to find a one time deal but doubtful there will be a company that offers that. I've done a craft show in the past and it doesn't go well if you don't offer credit. Also, with identity theft on the rise, people are reluctant to write a check.
I splurged and bought this awesome doming block. I'm going to have to decide what I want to dome now! lol. I'll share whatever I create.


  1. Wow - that's great doming block set, I can't believe how long it is since I caught up with you and yours!
    The car looks a real muscular beastie and the charms are adorable, I'm sure they'll be great sellers
