MMMMMMMM Butter



A few weeks ago I came home to a shattered butter dish and 2 very guilty looking dogs. I like a funky butter dish so I was a little peeved when I stumbled upon my sassy puppies and broken funky dish. Since then we've been using a plate and I've been searching for my next great butter dish. 
Well yesterday I was at Goodwill and I spotted this plain white heavy duty beauty for just 3 bucks! I remembered I had some DecoArt paint markers for glass and though hmmmm I may be onto something here. I can create my very own butter dish!



So I washed the dish very well and then swabbed it with a little rubbing alcohol to get off any residue. The markers were so so juicy and easy to use! They were transparent but bright enough to not bother this usually opaque loving girl. I wrote the words out first, let them dry then decorated and filled in with some color! My husband always says everything is better with butter so it seemed perfect for this project! 


Once you finish drawing you let the ink set for 8 hours or more and then bake it in the oven according to the instructions on the side of the pen. Honestly this was so quick and easy I may just start breaking things left and right in the kitchen just so I can make new ones. I kid... but really it was fun. 


DecoArt makes such a great variety of wonderful products. I'm looking forward to sharing more of my ideas and projects using their many paints and other products!

Now to make supper...of course there will be butter involved.

Happy creating...

Love love


Valentines is my favorite which is funny because I'm not an overly romantic person but I just love love! I created this page to color and cut out for all my fellow love lovers, kids and really anyone. Imagine coloring a bunch of these and just handing them out to random people....I did that last year it is super fun! I even got a couple of bunches of daisies and gave a flower and a Valentine! 
The smiles were priceless. 

This page is available in my etsy shop right now! 



I colored these beauties with Tombow markers.

Please!



In the face of turmoil and unrest let's win with more love. 

Think about your words and actions. 

Jesus in the sense of church wasn't a part of my life because my parents were turned away from organized religion during a period of financial stress. They were told that they couldn't attend mass without contributing to the weekly offering basket. The powers that be thought of the church over the people living paycheck to paycheck and turned away a family and subsequently turned later generations into non believers of organized religion. 

But here's the thing Jesus in the real sense of believing.... never left me. 

Without being confined to the teaching and beliefs of an institution I believe in love and healing through that love. I believe in helping those in need and working through fear .... through that love. 

I struggle sometimes. I lash out and say stupid things, but I always try to get back to love. I get angry and scared about terrorism or bullies or things I don't understand. Getting angry and using hate doesn't make those feelings go away. 

Love does. 

I'm not sure what will happen in the world but I know I'm going to try hard to remember love. I want us to think about what we say and what we do because we can make a change. 

Please share, print, use this picture and allow it to remind us to use our powers for good. 

Peace to our planet.
