Hello all! My name is Angie, from youniquemom.
I very excited to share my latest project with you, DIY Glitter Letters!
Before we get into the project, I would like to tell you a little more about me…
I’m currently a stay at home mom figuring out what life is as a mother of 2. Beth is now 5 and John is 6 months old. Beth is my girly girl and so far my son John is all boy. There’s been lots of transition in our lives in the past year. We sold our house, had a big move, found out I was pregnant shortly after the move, my hubby started a new job after 6 years of school, and I gave birth to our son in January. He was born weighing in at 10 pounds 4 ounces (no c section for me either!!)! Our daughter adjusted well to being the big sister. In fact I think that was the easiest part of all of our transitions. Although we’ve lived in Oregon for 1 year now, we are still adjusting and missing our friends in Pullman, WA.
My blog is my hobby, I fit in writing when I can. It has become therapeutic for me in the land of motherhood and life transitions. Some of my favorite sites to go to for inspiration are: Six Sisters Stuff and Blonde Ponytail. (Of course, I obviously frequent Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom too! I love to find easy ways to cook healthy meals for my family and I’m also a fitness enthusiast trying to work on getting my pre-pregnancy body back.
One thing I enjoy is being crafty. While I was pregnant that kicked into high gear and I focused on my daughter’s room by making her name all glittery.
DIY Glitter Letters:
- If I do this again I may try spray paint instead. I was using what I had on hand, which was acrylic paint.
- ModPodge dries quickly if not put on thick enough. Although I got plenty of glitter on the letters, I had to hurry to get the ModPodge on then get the glitter on.
- And most important: Glitter goes everywhere, make sure you are doing this project in a place that can easily be vacuumed!
