December 09' Craft Group!

I hosted a FUN Christmas craft group at my house this month!
We made:

Christmas Wood Ornaments
With Vinyl Letters

We had a great turnout of 15 ladies.

painting + sanding + girl talk + good food = a Super FUN night!

And I think the ornaments turned out so cute.

Each ornament kit was $2.00 the whole set of eight was $16.00.

Here is how to make them:

You will need:
- 3/4 inch BY 1 1/2 inch wood, sawed to fit the length of Vinyl lettering wood
(I bought my wood at Home depot in the lumber department, a really nice guy cut most of the wood for me there, then I hand sawed the smaller pieces.)
- Vinyl Lettering, creme color, 1 inch letters
(I buy my vinyl letters from AllysAttic)
-Craft paint,
(I like the brand Americana the red color I used is Deep Burgundy)
-Filer, (used for rounding the edges)
-Sandpaper, (used to rough up the edges)
-1/8 Drill bit and drill, (used to drill two holes in the top of ornament)
-Thick 16 gauge wire, (found in the picture hanging isle at Home Depot)
-Matt or Glossy Finishing Spray
-Glue Gun or strong hold wood and metal glue (to hang to ornament)

To put then together you simply,
Cut the wood, File or sand the edges if you want a rounded edge, Paint 2-3 coats of the craft paint. After dry, sand the edges for a worn look. Now Spray with the finishing spray. After dry, apply vinyl lettering. Now you can Drill your holes at the top, and glue in your wire.

Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets
I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
