Less Bitchy Pill Anyone???

Not sure what they call it in your home. 
It goes by many names, but to say the very least, the characteristics are universal.
Here in our home we refer to it as 'Monster-ating.'

Sometimes projects just fall into your lap. 
Circumstances, resources, and inspiration. 
The joyous trifecta for unbridled creativity!!  
Here's mine...

The medicinal remedy for 'monsterating'..
The Less Bitchy Pill

Thank you to Ignacio at Nicecrane Designs, I now have a steady supply of sanity at the ready. 
If you feel you need to stock your home with said remedies as well, you too can find these fabulous labels, Sharing Your Recipes, here.

A little experiment with two kinds of spray paint. Frosted and Looking Glass (mirror). 
Here you'll see I have 3 glasses ready to go.


The Frosted worked incredibly!
Dry within 10 minutes. Pulling off the Frog tape and rubberbands didn't hurt the glass a bit. The Looking Glass paint however, HORRID! I was so displeased with the outcome, I threw the glass away. 
More practice with that later...

And just a couple more sedatives to stock my craftroom apothecary.
Chill Pills

 Happy Pills

On display...

There you have it!
A fun little way to keep your wits about you and all the while being creative...
Hugs n' Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

Thank you SO very much for the sweetest comments you've all left too. I truly appreciate all your kind words. 
Have a great week!

I take it there were Skittles in the glass. Hee hee You could just give me the first container. Chocolate cures everything. I might have to steal your term for our "special" time. :-) The frost looks awesome. Hugs!

Lisa said...

Ha... I love these, Lisa!!! They're fun and beautiful all in one. Great font, too. I had an old friend that used to pass out sticks of "happy gum", back in the day. She would replace the slide off wrapper with her own happy gum wrapper. Thanks for taking me back :):):)
Hope all is well!
Hugs,
Lisa

Love the frosted glasses - and so hilarious (for me anyway) that you have Reeses cups in the first one. My husband brought home a bag on Sunday. He thought I needed them - I think we must be quite a bit alike!!

I'm pretty sure DH wants to place an order and he wants to know if there is a discount for buying in bulk! Living with three women pretty much overrides his testosterone on a regular basis!

Your glasses look fantastic and I love how you decorated them with the swanky yet cheeky tags!Fabulous job, sib!

Mitra Pratt said...

Hey there! I LOVE the frosted glass!!!!! That is so super cool! Sorry I am just now getting around. The email is all straighted out and things are finally on the upswing. Pretty amazing how much a move will throw you for a loop!

OK, now on the looking glass paint, try spritzing the INSIDE of something with vinegar. Like little uneven splots. Then spray the mirror paint inside. Might have to do a couple of coats. The vinegar will prevent the paint from sticking. Should be a mercury glass kind of look. It's fun...honest!!!!

Pia S said...

Tihi, what a fun project! Just looking at these glasses and their tags is enough to get in good mood! They sure brought a smile to my face:)
