Tute Thursday: Confetti Glassware

I love the look of confetti glasses and plates. I think it looks so festive but it can be expensive! I bought two glasses and it ended up costing over 20.00! I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my very own. I wanted a nice place setting for Thanksgiving and below is what I created. 

I used glass/enamel paint on the glassware and have washed them several times by hand. Nothing has rubbed off! I think I might make some for Christmas and the summer.

I Blame the Hallmark Channel

Has it really been since the 23rd since I've been here? Holy macaroni! Where did the time go? I had no idea that I have been gone for so long. I blame the Hallmark Channel. Yep, you guessed it, they got me again this year. Another year of sappy romance holiday movies. It is like a bad virus that comes back every year...a bad, sickening sweet, can't get enough of the crappy romance virus. If I had the energy, I would shake my fists at them, but I can't because I am too busy holding onto Iggy and crying about how much the guy with the perfect teeth loves the misunderstood female. 

As you know by now, I am a SUCKER for a made for TV Christmas movie. It doesn't even have to be a  good one. I will watch all of them. The only saving grace is that I trap OMP into my madness. Many times I have been cussed at (under his breath, of course) about getting him sucked into some sappy movie that involves a little girl dying of cancer and the town granting her last wish. 

Each week Hallmark is debuting one or two new movies, but they are not the only ones who have cornered the market on holiday TV, ABC Family is making a list and checking it twice with their 25 Days of Christmas. The 25 days before Christmas is filled with our favorite movies, stop motion animation and a few new broadcast to keep our days filled joy. I will not lie to you when I say that I usually tape everything on ABC Family since a lot of it is from my childhood. 

So, there ya go, one channel pulling at your heart strings while the other let's you relive your childhood memories. I know it is only November 10th but Christmas plans: shopping, watching movies, listening to music, all start after Dias de los Muertos. It will go nonstop until December 26th when Christmas is put away and I start planning for the new year. C'mon, do you really expect anything less from me? A girl needs to stay jolly and bright!
