Episode #1 ~ Glass ornament with winter scene. Yep, I did it!

That's right I finally did one! After 2 days and countless hours I got it uploaded. I actually had to do it twice...there's something about listening to yourself speak...I now realize that I say "um" a LOT! Um...I'm going to have to pay more attention to that, um... :) 

I want to thank Nicole and Emma for giving me help on how to upload to youtube...sorry Nicole, I only mentioned Emma in the video, I realized it when I watched it back. Also, I wanted to thank Nicole for making me a button for my blog, she totally surprised me with it. She's learning how to do them and blog designs. Well I hope you like my first video, I'm not so sure I will do anymore, I'll wait and see if the mood strikes me again.

One more thing, I have received blog awards last week, I'm sorry with the holiday and this silly video, I'm way behind.  I'm going to do my best to take care of them tomorrow.  I really do appreciate them.

Liz - this was great - thanks so much! I will be going to a Christmas craft making day and I am going to bring this project! I save my clear plastic from my carts, do you think that they will work for this project?

Alex said...

YOU DID A GREAT JOB ! and WOW, I am so glad you showed how you did those amazing ornaments ! I really want to try it :)
My verdict...you should definitely make more videos, but...I do know they are a lot of work, so no worries if you decide not to :)

Janie said...

Wow Liz, you did an awesome job ! You should definatly continue to make them !! You were great at making the steps easy to follow !! One question, because I love these ornaments and I love snowmen and have everything but the flakes on hand to make them hehehe, do you think it would be easier to put the flakes in first ? So they dont get into your sticky dots ? TFS ! I am going to make these for sure !!

EllenM said...

Fantastic 1st video my friend!! Keep them coming. This is the cutest project ~ well done!

Lezlye said...

Liz, you did great on the video! I thought that is how you might have done it! Thanks for posting it, now I have no clue where to get that beacon glue?

Jessica said...

Wow! you did an excellent job on this project! You are encouraging me to do my very first video now. TFS

Loved your video. Keep doing them because for you first they will just keep getting better. You will be a pro!

nightnurse said...

Great video, thanks for taking the time to make one. I can't wait to try these ornaments.

Brenda said...

Loved your video. Great job. I kinda wanna do one too but I feel the same way you did. Maybe now I will get up the nerve. Love the ornament. TFS

ScrappingStephanie said...

First off I loved your video. I have to disagree with you...I think you are a natural and never would have known it was your first if you did not say so. I made these the other day, I had saved all the plastic packaging from my cricut lite carts and it worked perfectly. I did not use glue dots to secure the plastic though....FABULOUS idea. TFS the great video, you should definetly make more.


flowerdisco said...

Liz..I started watching your video last night but didn't finish. Something came up but today as soon as I have relaxing time I will. So far you are great! and love your voice and your pace: not fast not too slow either and I can't wait to see how you filled the balls, lol...that did not sound good, but you know what I mean! wink wink

Crafting Katie said...

Great job with your video, Liz! I just love these ornaments and can't wait to give them a try. Thanks for your clear instructions!

Shana said...

I think you did a great job and look forward to seeing more videos. I so wanted to know how to do this. Only thing I would add, is maybe mentioning the sizes of cut outs and circle. Can't wait to give this a try.

flowerdisco said...

i just finished watching the video and i am so glad i came back because i would love to make at least one. great job on both projects: the video and the ornaments. they are adorable...tfs!

Kerry--Momma K said...

You did a great job on your first video Liz. I really like your ornament. I feel like I just learnt a magic trick. lol


Mel said...

Yay! Thanks for doing a video... I shutter to think about making one. Love your project and power to the tweezers!

Kim. said...

CraftsManda said...

Congrats on your first video! I loved it. You are such a talented lady, and I'm so glad you'd share with all the world! :) I love those ornaments, and the tutorial was perfect! Lovely work. Just lovely!

Lauren B. said...

Wow! (I can't believe that I missed this when you first posted it!) I think you did an awesome job (for real)! I wouldn't have known that was your first video if you didn't say so!

I can't wait to give this a try - it's such a cute idea. My mom wants to try it too...she lives in FL and her tree is "ocean themed," so she is thinking about putting sparkly sand in the bottom instead of snow. :)

Thanks for sharing!
p.s. I also hate filming videos when I know someone can hear me. Go figure...strangers watch it on youTube, but I don't want my husband to hear me. ;)

pammi said...

you did a great job on your first video. im just now finding your blog so im off to read! Pam

Lisa Mala6 said...

What a great tut! Way to GO!
Thanks for the inspiration!


Sandy from Ukiah said...

Now how did I ever miss this.... What an awesome video... You did such a wonderful job... AND I love your ornament... But how did you know what size to cut the plastic circle and how big to cut the trees and the adorable snowman... super super cute.

teachdanz said...

I am so glad you made this video, I never would have figured this out otherwise:-) don't give up on the videos, you did a great job!! what size did you cut the acetate out at and also the trees and snowman too? thanks!!

Joan said...

How do you measure how big to cut the circles? Also, I wish you had used a litle more light and a little closer camera. It was hard to see exactly what you were doing, but I enjoyed the video and the darling ornament. Thank you and make more.

Hi Joan, thank you for you comment! I just measured the width of the ornament, and with my gypsy subtracted .10. Example: if ornament is 2.75" then in my gypsy I cut a circle 2.65". It took me a few trys to get the size right. Also since then I've made more and found out that all ornaments are not the same size, even in the same container :/ Yes I would agree with you on the lighting, and the closeness of the camera, but this was my very first video. I've learned a lot since then, however I still "um" :) Since it's been a couple of years that I did this one, maybe I'll do another one later in the season!

Mommajozy said...

You did a great job !!! It IS nerve racking to do a
video !!! I tuned in to hopefully see you make the manger ornament, but I absolutely get the idea from this one !!!
I can't WAIT to try it !!!!! Thanks, and please- do another video !!! You did FINE !!!

Debbie Dodson Mogg said...

an easy way to get the acetate down into the ball is to wrap it around a pencil and stick the pencil in and slide the pencil out.
