New Addiction

I was invited to join the GAS MAMMA group on flickr. This months swap is altered Scrabble game pieces. Right up my alley, no arm twisting involved. LOL!

Of course I had to involve Spud, lots of arm twisting. LOL! I finally got him to set the drill press up for me, only after I tried doing it with a regular drill and almost went through my finger. I wanted holes top to bottom instead of front to back. I love how they spin and it gives you more decorative space on the tile.

If you don't have a drill press, then use teeny tiny eye screws on the top. The ladies in this swap are such a hoot and the horror stories of drills has been something else. Please be careful. I have to constantly remind myself to be careful. Just because it looks fast and simple doesn't mean it is.

I use Judykins Diamond Glaze on these. It gives them a high gloss, but makes it hard to take pictures. Well I'm an Artist not a Photogragher. LOL! Photograghy and shaky hands don't mix. That's when I yell, "SPUD!" LOL!

Have a great day! Create!

  1. I haven't stopped by for a while. You've been busy. Love the dominoe pendants and the scrabble tile earrings. I love the way they spin when you drill through them like you did.
    Better than stationary.
    Great work.

  2. Thank you. I need to get over to your blog and see what's up. Miss you!

  3. I can totally understand your addiction. and these are soooo cool.
