I was home all weekend, so tried a lot of what I thought would be quick projects.
First, this sun catcher:
You melt beads at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. My mistake? Using old Marie Callender pie pans, with the name embossed on the bottom. The name came out on the sun catchers! So Sunday I bought disposable ones and remelted. I had to add beads because it was a little wider, and this is how they came out:
Next, coasters made with scrapbook paper. This took a LOT longer than I thought, but I got a little carried away.

Mine: (I couldn’t weather them quite as much)

My second during:
After: (I did NOT think it was going to come out, and it’s not as light as it looks in the picture, but still danged cool!
I have some recipes, too, but another day ;) Any reason why I haven’t been writing?
