Fuzzy Fingers & More......

My finger are fuzzy this morning!! I have been using spray adhesive to put my quilt batten on the cardboard to mount the cross stitch to the jar lids. I don't use it on the cross stitch itself. Then I started putting the trim around the jar lids with glue gun. That is when I discovered my fingers are fuzzy... At least they are not sticky.. That Aleene's Tacky Spray gets 5 stars for sticky!  Here is the grand kids jars finished and filled with candy..


 I couldn't find my black spray paint and I opted out on the glitter lids after the Skull Brothers.. I have glitter all over my craft room.

 My pumpkin is smiling so big!  He like his new Halloween Party hat! He is so cute! Now back to the glitter talk.. This is why there is glitter all over everything....

The Skull Brothers.. They are sunning themselves this morning. I have to give them necks made of candlesticks today. I have all kinds of trim and crepe paper to make them collars. I did finally move Glitter brother #2 outside to glitz him.. I hope to have them finished by tonight. Then back to stitching on Jack's house.
Till later... and remember to never rub your eye with fuzzy fingers!

The jars turned out awesome! I love the trim you used for them.
Your hat for Mr. Pumpkin is adorable. You are so creative April!
Remember also to never rub your face if you have glitter on your hands. You'll sparkle for weeks, lol!
