Back in Style: Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I finally got done with my bar exam. Now I just have to wait to find out the results in April. In the meantime, I am back to work, both at the office and crafting/blogging. I thought I would start getting back into the swing of things with a giveaway. I am going to try and do one of these every month from now until summer (at least). So to kick it all off...this month I am giving away this mug:

I was experimenting with new mediums on this. It is a regular ceramic mug from Ikea. I used a rub-on for both the word "sparkle" and the horseshoe. Then to seal it, I used a very thin layer of 3D Crystal Lacquer Glaze. This was a little trickier than I thought as the glaze is pretty thick, but if I got to much on, it started to run. I did this with several mugs, and this is my best one (no runs at all!) The glaze gives the mug a slightly three dimensional look, which was the whole point. This mug is not dishwasher safe, but it is food safe as I didn't alter the inside in any way.

Not only am I giving away the mug, but it will arrive stuffed full of various goodies. Goodies may include various jewelry, trinkets and a mystery prize currently listed on my Etsy that will knock your socks off! What must you do to enter? Simple: leave a comment telling me about your latest craft experiment and how it turned out. I'll draw a random winner from those who leave a comment before St Paddy's Day (March 17th).

Happy Crafting!


  1. Congrats on finishing your exam! I hope the wait for results isn't too hard on you... that's a long time to have to wait!

  2. our latest craft project was making valentine's cards for all the grandparents and aunts/uncles/cousins. my almost-three year old is super creative and she is learning to write her name, so it was a lot of fun...they turned out gorgeous:) of course no matter what they looked like we knew it would be a hit. our project at christmas was to make tote bags for my mom and was harder than i expected(ever tried to make a painted footprint with a 3 month old?) anyway, next up is st. patty's day decorations:) thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous mug!

  3. Hmmmm.... I haven't tried too much new lately. I'm working on a blanket that I'm fixing because I gave it to someone and then it started to come apart (granny squares)! What a mess! THanks for the giveaway!

  4. I just started trying to knit. Lets just say I hope I get better at it ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. I don't consider myself too crafty. What I see in my mind never seems to work it's way out my hands BUT, I did finish a couple tutus for the first time.

  6. I just finished sewing a couple dresses for my daughters :)

    Congrats on finishing your exam!

  7. I hope you did better on your test than on my last crafting experience heh. I attempted to finish hand stitching some detailing on a spring dress I found in a vintage boutique store. But.. I ended sewing my own sleeve into the detailing.. I really need to be more careful. Anyways have a great afternoon.

  8. I just finished my sons first year scrapbook. It turnrd out great, well that was because I re-did a couple of the pages until they were perfect! Thanks and cute idea.


  9. My latest craft experiment was using knit fabric for the waistbands of skirts (rather than elastic). It made them very comfortable, and turned out well!
