Hello, My name is Cheri
Its So Very Cheri
I am Mom to 4 great kiddos
wife to one hubby.
I home school the 2 oldest boys but nexct year I will be home schooling three when G3 enters Kindergarden.
Our 4 kiddos call themselves the G-Force
--all of their names begin with the letter G--
plus my hubby is in school so life is crazy.
I really enjoy blogging and just moved my blog a couple of months ago.
If you used to follow me you need to re-sign up, Google swipes all of your followers when you leave.
My blog just turned 1 year last year.
I have a couple of fun give-a-ways going on right now.
1 is an i-phone and
the other is
a really cool Craigslist APP.
I have a couple of fun parties each week.
Its So Very Creative
and on Wednesdays
I am also part of the DIY Club.
We just had our first event.
We will be changing several things next month to make it even better.
This Sunday we will announce the top 10 and the voting will begin.
Come over and vote for your favs.
Enough about me and my blog.
I am so honored to be here today to share with you a fun tutorial.
I have some pretty Beach Glass.
I picked up some pretty aqua, green and blue rocks while we were at Sea World
to mix in with the sea glass.
No it was not a thrifty buy but I crammed as many rocks in the bag as I could possibly fit.
I just think it is so pretty.
in a pretty piece of jewelry.
Do you know what it is?
Beach Glass is also called
It washes up on the BEACH
it is hard to find
You usually have to get up
to find it
they sweep the beaches clean.
Some people think it is something
created by the Sea
It is actually
that comes from humans leaving trash
People go to the beach
with their thick beer bottles
made of nice thick glass
that comes in a variety of colors
and they leave them there.
They get washed back into the water
to begin doing its magic
When they wash back on shore
we get beautiful
If you don't live anywhere near a beach
You can make your own beach glass
that looks pretty close to the real thing.
You will need:
An Ice Cream Maker or Rock Tumbler
Thick pieces of broken glass in a variety of colors
You want to take broken glass pieces
Make sure you use thick glass
Get an ice cream maker
(if you don't have a rock tumbler)
Take out the paddle arm.
Put your pieces of glass in.
add some gritty sand --a few Tablespoons
I think it needs some rock salt as well
After all the ocean has salt and I am sure it plays a part
in creating these beautiful pieces
Just barely cover it with water.
Place in your garage and tumble away for 1-4 days
depending on the way you want yours to look.
Thanks for the fun day at your blog.
I look forward to a long fun friendship.
Come for a visit and follow along and I try to come by and follow everyone that follows me.
