An Exercise in Humility

I had this totally fun Christmas craft lined up to post tonight. I found these glasses yesterday when my mom & I went to World Market, and I thought that all they needed to be perfect was a little custom paint. So I bought them, and picked up some paint pens that promised permanence.

So, while I wanted to show off my cute holiday glasses…

When we fail in crafts, we head to Pinterest. I’m determined to do my research (which I should have done in the first place) and find out how to get permanent paint on a glass surface.

Hopefully within the week, I’ll be able to come to you with a success. If you have any ideas or suggestions, I welcome them!
