A day of crafting

It's been so long since I crafted just for fun. I've been so busy - and my daughter dragged me to a knitting class (ok, it wasn't that hard, but really, another hobby??). Anyway, Kai has the flu, so we're forced to stay home. He's feeling a little better, so I've taken the opportunity to get some crafting done. I finished a rosary that someone asked me to restring for them, started a bracelet made entirely of jumprings - needed a break from that for a while and made these projects. It's always so good to get back into my studio...I miss it SO much when I'm away, especially for so long.
I really liked the Just Buzzing By set from SU. So, I decided to make flavor infused honey for Christmas gifts this year. I found the bottles at Specialty Bottle. I stamped the images and colored them with copics. I cut them with my nesties and adhered them with mod podge. I will make a coordinating tag to hang around the neck of the bottle with the name of the honey - Orange, Ginger Lime, Tabasco (for my dad, sounds great for cornbread), mint or apple cinnamon, which was a special request from Emma. She wants to start selling honey. I don't think she realizes the time and money that would go into one little ol' bottle of honey!
This is actually my first set of nuggets. I got the stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. So much fun! This will make great gifts for the kids in youth group! Shhhh...don't tell them!
