It’s been a busy few weeks here in Saskatchewan. Last week I had the unique pleasure of going to the emergency room and having my appendix taken out. It wasn’t so bad, really, I was out of the hospital after a day and have been healing nicely.
This week we’ve been getting ready for Canada Day. But, it’s not just Canada Day – we’re also having a party to celebrate my in-laws’ 33rd wedding anniversary and David and I’s marriage. We got married in my home town in Florida, and we haven’t had the chance to do a wedding reception here in Canada yet. We’re celebrating everything together that way it’s easier for those who have to travel, like my Mom who is visiting this week.
I wanted to do something special for my in laws to mark this special anniversary. I eventually came up with the idea of customizing some glasses. I’ve only used etching cream once before, so this was a learning experience.
The first thing I did was create a simple text design in Photoshop. I wanted it to be elegant and not too difficult to cut or apply since I haven’t had a lot of success with etching cream in the past.
