Smurf Glass

Hey yall. I wanted to share my newest project--glass painting! I picked up a glass painting kit at Michael's the other day. It included some type of clear primer stuff you brush on the glass first. After painting, you have to wait 10 days before washing, but it is supposed to be dishwasher safe. I painted it on the 10th, so I can wash it on the 20th.
I painted my name on one side and a cute little smurf on the other side. Since I have no artistic ability whatsoever, I cut a stencil out of vinyl. When I removed the stencil, I also removed some of the paint. I guess next time I'll put the stencil on the inside of the glass and try to paint within the lines on the outside.
So just a few more days until I can drink out of my glass! In other news, I spent this past weekend at a scrapbook retreat at beautiful Lake D'Arbonne. My allergies were acting up and I ran fever on and off, but other than that I had a blast. I finished 20 something scrapbook pages which is great, but I had hoped to do more. I started working on our Disney trip last year. I managed to get the airplane ride and Magic Kingdom finished before I moved on to work on my cousin Ashley's wedding book. I'm gonna take pictures of what I've done so far. It's turning out beautiful, but of course anything with Ashley involved can't help but be gorgeous.
I went to the doctor today (yep, gonna be a long post) and got an antibiotic for my sinus infection. While there we talked about the fact that my heart rate is still quite fast and I'm still quite tired. Blah, blah, blah, get off caffeine, blah, blah, blah. I've gotta get some fasting lab work done tomorrow morning before work and we'll see what happens after 3 months of no caffeine. The thing is, a rapid heart rate will make you tired. The toprol lowers the heart rate, but it's side effect is that it makes you tired. If he puts me on a higher dose of toprol, the tiredness from the increased dosage may be more than the energy increase from the lowered heart rate. I guess I'm just gonna take it one day at a time and see what happens. Anyhow, I hope yall have a wonderful evening. I need to make a phone call shortly to my little Anthony, who turned 4 today. He and Joey are spending spring break with Gramma and Pops in St Francisville. Happy Birthday Anthony!!!
