Happy New Year....and more bottles!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope that 2013 is good to all of us!  I don't know about you but 2012 was not my best year.  Not the worst either but definitely not the best.  I am going to try to have a more positive outlook as I enter 2013.  I am going to try to become more organized and more productive.  I will let you know how that goes...fingers crossed....lol.

I do want to share a few more bottles that I have made.  The first set are made from bottles that I am sure you can recognize.  They were the first bottles that I spray painted.  My BF liked them so much that I decided to put his monogram on it and let him have it.

then I put my monogram on one (well it's not totally correct) the "B" is my maiden name but I wanted to keep it "symmetrical" like his.

I also made mine a little more girly with a bigger flourish and I added some jewels as well.

I bet you know what bottles these are now.  Doesn't the detail show up with the silver metallic paint?  They are really detailed and quite pretty.

I know I should have staged these before posting but I really wanted to get this one in before the new year.
I also made a set of bottles for my 4 year old niece Kenna ( the love of my life)
Yes - these are Starbucks bottles too but these are the smaller ones.  And no, I didn't quite drink it all myself.  And yes, I have been saving them for a looong time.  That's why I have so many!!

I don't think she will remember, but on the plane home from Sanibel Island she told me she wanted rainbow butterflies. I think these qualify, don't you?

But I couldn't leave well enough alone and I aqdded a few more small butterflies and I am not liking them as well as I like the bottles before.  But it's too late to take them off..sigh.

I am going to make a set for my 1-1/2 year old cutie pie niece Jayden and my 4 year old nephew Braiden.  I will of course share when I do.

once again a little staging wouldn't have hurt.  instead you get to see my lovely workbench and all my stuff piled on it....sorry...lol

Signing off now.............must go see what you've been up to.

    Happy New Year!!! These are a really cute DIY project...I'm sure that your niece will be very happy to receive them. To answer your question about MMS milk paint...it's a powder paint that you mix...it's works really well on all types of furniture. You can google it and find more info....hope to see ya at this weeks party:)
