My Snowman Ornament

I have been wanting to try this for years and I am glad I did cause now I am hooked!!!  For my first ornament to paint I thought of a snowman... how easy could it be?  We will find out!  LOL!

I started with clear glass ornaments that I bought at the craft store.

I used acrylic paints for this.  I added a couple drops of water to make the ink more do-able.
I turned it over to let it drain out the excess paint and then I let it dry.

I found this cute little snowmans hat at the craft store, how could I pass this up!?

For the eyes and mouth, I used black acrylic paint and let it dry.

This is what he looks like with the hat on!  I will add some ribbon to the hat and of course my snowman will need a nose.  I will continue and post the final results later. 


Low Carb diet

This is my low carb diet lunch.  Ham & Cream Cheese rolls with a salad.  I started this diet a couple weeks ago and lost 8 lbs already.  I have added a few carbs this week but not too much.  I did this diet years ago and I will say it does work but it is difficult the first 2 weeks.  I had a hard time staying away from starches but this time I am doing well.
I hope this diet will last because with the Holidays coming up, it is very hard to stay away from all those yummy desserts!
