Here are more waterless snow globe mason jars! I finished one with white trees, and another with a church. It's pretty time consuming cutting out, gluing, and glittering the little houses, but really fun.
On to the winner of my pet silhouette giveaway! It's Maria from Garden Path Beads. She has a darling little Chihuahua named Molly. Congratulations Maria! And thanks to everyone who took the time to enter. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, and a very Merry Christmas!

His name is Stormy, and we named him that because our first dog is named Sunny, and well being creative thinkers, and the fact it was raining when we got him, the name fit. The reason we bought them, was because I was in extreme pain, grieving the loss of our beloved black lab Toby. He was with us for 11 years, and was part of our family as our kids were growing up. I missed him so much, and the best thing I did was quickly get a puppy. It really did help.
Pets are such a huge part of our lives, and provide unconditional love, and loads of joy. Sometimes when I've had a crummy day, I just give my puppy a giant hug, and his softness and warmth makes me feel much better. He never judges me either, he just wags his tail, and I feel that things will be OK.
So I wanted to create a special keepsake for our furry friends.
On to the giveaway! It's for a custom soldered silhouette of your pet! Complete with name and date. Just leave me a comment here about your pet, and what makes him or her so special to you, then I'll put your name in the hat. Oh, and if you sign up to follow this blog or Facebook, I'll put your name in again.
Here's Stormy posing with his ornament. What a dog! Just looking at that cute face in this photo makes me want to give him a big kiss!
Have a great week, and I hope you win!
