Refreshing presence. . . .

Times of refreshing come from the presence of the Lord. . .
Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time. Acts 3:19-21

CHACB Challenge #8: Metal and/or Glass

Gloria Designs ChallengeThe current challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous is to:   
Show us Some Metal or Glass
Do you hoard gears, pins, brads, eyelets, frames, and other metal do-dads? Do you have a thing for tiny light bulbs and glass vials? Do junk drawers make you giddy? Do you hang out in office supply stores so you can score funky paperclips? Do bottle caps make you swoon? Dig through your hoard to find something metal or glass (or both) and make a project to share!
One talented participant will receive a prize for their work from our fabulous sponsors: Really Reasonable Ribbon and Sin City Stamps. We will also pick a few favorites to feature on the blog and serve as future Guest DT membersYou have until Sunday, June 1 at midnight PDT to prepare, submit and link up your project to the CHAC Blog.
