Wine and Jennifer Rzasa

Jennifer Rzasa had adorable wine charms over on her blog. You can click here to see them. I am moving my daughter 800 miles away next week to start her new life as a nurse - she just graduated from college. She has been away for the last four years but this seems so final. So, I decided to make her a little gift that had pictures of things that remind me of her. And every time she has a glass of wine she can think of me... right.

I used a sheet of shrink film, punched a 2 1/2" circle, and punched a small circle in that so I could put a ring on it after I shrunk it. Then I took the 2 1/2" circle and stamped it with a design using StazOn Black Ink Pad. I than colored it with permanent markers. This one is an old Stampin Up stamp with a little girl in overalls tending a garden. My girls always wore cute little overalls - I put Kate's name on it, the name of her new hometown, and "est. July 2012". It came out so cute. They shrink down to about 1" in size. I made 8 wine charms for her. 

Cats, sending her kisses, and St. Pat's Day...

...Believe, KKG and a key, a tree, and Mowgli, of course.

Today we were downtown Philadelphia in this cute little wine shop. They had this adorable 'can' of wine called Red Barn. Taste delicious and is from a local winery called Paradocx Vineyard. The can of paint wine comes with a paint stirrer that says 
I just love the whole marketing idea that they went with for this wine.
