That is the sweetest bridal gift I ever saw :

Make a Kitchen Maid or Mate
This is adorable! If the bride is a good friend, you will know what household items to use in creating your custom-made Kitchen Maid.

And today, some couples have joint wedding showers, so you can also build a Kitchen Mate for the husband-to-be. Here's how:

- Begin with an ironing board to be the body of the Maid or Mate.
- Tie an apron with pockets around the middle to make a waist. Fill them with smaller kitchen items, utensils or tools.
- Attach a plunger on one side of the back of the ironing board as an arm and a toilet bowl brush or feather duster as the other arm.
- Add a dustpan at the wide end of the ironing board for feet or set the ironing board on top of a vacuum and bind with several elastic cords under the apron (as we did in the photo).
- Secure a string mop as the head of hair to the back of the ironing board with the mop portion flopped over the top narrow end of the ironing board.
- Create a face with nylon net scrubbies for the eyes, a small sponge for the nose and a nailbrush for the mouth.
Use your imagination to make this an amusing, but useful, addition to the wedding shower party. Just remember to make the Kitchen Maid or Mate with anything you think the bride or groom will need for their new life together.

A hell of a weekend !!!

Wasn't one of my best weekends...It should have been...Spending it at our friend's house in a northern village Kartaba...
Planning a prayer eve, climbing the mountain hill to the cross... And that's where it all started and ruined the weekend.

I survived it, yes...but as usual...the damages done to me and I do to others, especially my loved ones is huge !

I'll let it go... and move on my baby's "1st tooth" party.

I started working on the bowl... glass bowls which I will paint in "vitrail" technique.
Will get the pics as soon as I have some. Working is not as easy as i thought... The lines are not thin and easy to manage, and they're taking much time !!!

I made a search on the glass painting technique and found this article
throught the website.
