Project of the Week - Etching Glass

Last week my thoughtful dad sent me a package in the mail with all sorts of sewing stuff. One of the items was a collection of buttons. I've just had them sitting around in plastic baggies the last few days and then I got an idea. I wanted to get a jar to keep them in, but I thought it would be fun to etch the jar. I had never done this before, but I thought it was worth a try. It was a little tedious, but I really enjoyed doing it. I can't wait to etch some more...I'm thinking personalized baking dishes, canisters, drinking glasses with an initial....my mind really hasn't stopped. I'll probably be adding these items in my store soon, but here's my project of the week....
