Glass Blocks

There's never a dull moment when you have a toddler running around the house! So I haven't gotten much done lately but I did come across one of the glass block lights that I made for my family for Christmas. I had big plans to completely hand paint them but I had so many projects going on and the holidays flew by. Instead Tony spray painted a thin layer of white then I stenciled on snowflakes in 3 different colors and sponged a silver border. They still came out really cute and everyone loved them. Im thinking about making a nicer hand painted everyday one for each person for their birthday.
What it looks like when it's turned on.
My goal for this week is to make Thank you cards for everyone that came to Seth's birthday and to make Valentine cards to send out to the Grandma's and close Aunts and Uncles. Hopefully I will enter a couple challenges and wrap up organizing my kitchen. It's coming along nicely and I really wish I had taken before pictures.
