What's Going On?

Tomorrow, I will be celebrating my first blogoversary....  I had hoped to be able to have a give a way.  Well, THAT's not going to happen this week.  But.... I do have something in mind.  So, I'm shooting for an end of the year or a happy new year give away.  It WILL be fun!

I just wanted to check in and let you all know I'm still alive!  I've been working on some Christmas gifts and decorations and I've been spending a lot of time with my family.  It seems that every weekend Mr. Inspiring and his sister are coming up with fun things for us all to do....  And besides - - Isn't that what Christmas is REALLY about??

We are also in the middle of getting our 36' x 48' shed built, and Mr. Inspiring likes to go and check the progress every evening after supper.  If he's this way with the shed, I can only imagine what he'll be like when we start building our house!!  I'm glad he's excited, though!! 

I promised myself last year that I would not stress out about Christmas this year.  And, actually, I haven't.  I've only got a handful of things that I need to finish. 

While we were digging out our Christmas decorations, I saw some windows that I had up in storage.  And I remembered that I had some looking glass paint.  And I remembered seeing a post where someone combined the two, plus a spray bottle of water, and voila ~~  I came up with this for my bathroom.  Sorry about the fuzzy picture....  I've been playing with the settings on my camera.......  I'll post more pictures when I have it all together!  I've got a couple more windows ~~ I could do a tutorial if anyone is interested??

Anyway,  I cleaned up the window.  On the backside, I spray a little bit of water, then painted it with the looking glass paint (Krylon.... awesome stuff, but it does stink!!)  When it was dry, I wiped where I had sprayed the water.  Then I taped music and script scrapbook paper to the back.  Added a picture hanger and hung it up!  Mr. Inspring loves it. 

I'm in the process of making a W to hang from it, too, but I just haven't finished it yet.  I'll post when I have it all done.  But here's a sneak peek!

Hope your December is going well.  I'll check back in soon!

Hugs ~~ Suz


  1. Hi Suz, I am looking for good blogs today and found you on google...I have to tell you I love your blog after ckecking some of your post! I am your new follower...please visit me and become our follower/join us too, because I'd ~love~ having you a part of our blog family! Thanks much...

    Warmest Wishes,

  2. I like this window idea, but probably can get the idea after seeing the finished product. I hadn't seen the tip of spraying water to keep the paint from sticking. This sounds sort of like getting the same effect as using mirrors and going thru the steps to remove part of the backing to show papers, ect. thru the back...except this sounds easier!


I love comments! I always try to reply back!
