New Product of the Week #6: Steve Jobs Collage (Apple)

Happy Halloween to all! Guess what I did today?

Witches Brew Labels

I went to my Kindergartner's Class to make "Witches Brew".  I love making this "brew" for children--especially Kindergartners!  I start with dry ice (1-2 lbs) already in my Cauldron.  Then, I tell the children that my "Ghost Spirits" (2 liters of Sprite) LOVE smart children and may try to escape from my Cauldron when I add them if there are any smart children in the room.  Then I pour the Sprite on the dry ice and the "smoke" bubbles out of the cauldron--it always gets a lot of giggles.  Then I add the rest of the ingredients, one at a time, making up some "spooky" saying about them as I go.  It's always a big hit!  (Complete recipe in the listing).

What did YOU do for Halloween?

Now, on to the REAL reason for today's post!  Time to announce this week's "New Product of the Week":

As many of you know, Steve Jobs, passed away a few weeks ago.  He was a very inspirational mentor to my brother (and millions of others in the world).  He was a wonderful example of innovation and thinking outside the box.  SO, I created a "collage" with several of my favorite "Steve Job Quotes" and made this as a gift for my brother to hang in his office:

Steve Jobs Collage (Apple)
It is sized for a 24 X 38 board.  (Long Story--it was supposed to be 24 X 36, but the guy at the store cut it a little long.  I didn't realize that until it was time to apply the vinyl, so I added the "Think Different" on top. Phew!  Nice fix!

New Product of the Week #5: You Are Special Plate Stencil

Sorry for the delay in posting this week's new Product of the week--(you'll understand why in a minute) . . . Let's get right to it, shall we?

Growing up we always had a red "You are Special" plate that we got to eat off of for our birthdays, awards' night, graduation, etc.  Did any of you have that plate?  There was something about that plate that made me feel, well, special!  I really felt like a queen for the day!

We wanted to carry that tradition on in our home so I went searching for the plate.  The cheapest one I found was $27.50!  Seriously?!  For a plate?

SO, I headed to Walmart and bought myself a red plate for just under $5.  I already had etching cream on hand, so I just created a vinyl stencil, applied it to the plate, spread the etching cream and waited.  After about 10 minutes (the bottle says 5 but I have a bunch of kids to distract me so it was more like 10) I washed off the etching cream and peeled off the vinyl . . .

You Are Special Plate Stencil
Beautiful, right?  (Someone seriously needs to teach me how to take pictures of etched glass--the glares are terrible, right?!)  I also did one on a clear glass plate, etched on the bottom, and plan to put it on a red charger.  The clear glass plate was $2.50--even cheaper!


(Do you see what I mean?!  I need help!  My photography skills were no match for the etched glass!)  We used it tonight for my son's birthday, and he LOVED it!  (He *may* have even said this was the best birthday EVER--and it's totally because of the plate, right?  *wink)

Do you want to make one for YOUR family?  THIS WEEK IS YOUR SPECIAL WEEK!  Just use promo code SPECIAL40 at checkout for 40% off this design!  (And I'll give you until November 3rd before it expires because of the delay in posting it.)

New Product of the Week #4: It's All About the Candy!

It's finally time to announce this week's New Product of the Week! We are going to wrap up Halloween this week with a couple of fun new products:

It's All About the Candy!
 This is what we plan to put by our Candy Bowl this year.  We do things different here (as in, we all meet in a parking lot and trunk-or-treat instead of door to door because our houses are spread so far apart :) ). SO, I'll leave this sign with a bowl of Candy for people to take a piece while I cart my kids around to the other cars. Fun stuff!

Frankenstein, Ghost and Jack-O-Lantern Faces for 8 oz Mason Jars
I'm planning on giving these to the kids' teachers this year as a "you survived the Halloween Party" gift. :)  Fill 8-oz mason jars with candy that's colored for your character, add the face and you're done!  (you can paint the lids like I did, or just leave it as is--the candy's all that matters, right?  Grin.)

You can also get the Combo Pack that includes both of the above products:

Combo Pack Candy Sign and Mason Jar Halloween Faces
What a fun way to wrap up Halloween, right?!  And because I love my customers, I am going to give you 40% off ANY HALLOWEEN DESIGN THIS WEEK ONLY with promo code:  CANDY40.
