Necklace and a story
So most visitors to my blog know that I am blessed with four of the greatest little grandsons in the world! Some of their pictures are actually in my blog header. My three year old grandson Avery loves "baking with Grammie," and his favourite things to bake are "fuffins." (muffins to the rest of the world)
So, during Christmas, when we were baking together, he asked me if he could wear my necklace. It was a sparkly Christmas thing, he likes bling! He wore it all day long, and at bedtime, asked me why little boys can't wear necklaces. I replied that of course, they COULD, and he asked me if he could have one.
So now Avery will have his very own necklace. The stamp is Just Johanna, inked with Ancient Page Archival Dye Ink. The glittered frosting was painted with Tulip® 3-D Fashion Paint™, then coated with Aleene's® Paper Glaze™, tucked into a cheapie dollar store round frame, backed and assembled with Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue®, and beribboned. The reverse of the piece reads "For Grammie's favourite Fuffin."
Grandparenting is, indeed, GRAND!
Thanks for visiting!
