post my projects-glass etching

Awhile back I talked about doing some posts on some projects I've been working on. This is the first project I'm going to post about.
I bought these canisters right after we go married. They are the largest size of glass canisters at Walmart. I have always really like them and the convenience of having them out on my counter. I use these two ingredients so often that it is a real time saver to have them right there, where I work, and right next to my Kitchen Aid. For the longest time I've been trying to think of a way to label them with flour and sugar. I didn't want to do vinyl, but I wanted to do something. I mentioned it to Steph and she said she wanted to use glass etching on them. I realized that was perfect, so thanks Steph. (We have the same taste on a lot of things.) You can pick up the glass etching at a craft store, but be sure to bring in a coupon, because even the baby bottle was a little pricey without a coupon. Cut our vinyl in the word you want to use, place it on your glass, and follow instructions on the glass etching package. It's really easy and I love it.

My canisters:

Steph's canisters:

My aunt Deanna, who cut the vinyl for me, had a Pyrex dish with her last name on it. I decided to do a couple for my cake pans. I thought I would just do Roe, but it was just too small so I added family. Who ever thought that my last name would get shorter, from Long to Roe. :)
This isn't the best picture, but you can kind of see what it looks like.
Just had to throw in a picture of Jacoby.
Most kids sleep with stuffed animals, but he sleeps with his basketball. :)

I think the etching on Pyrex pans is a really great idea for wedding gifts, too. That pic of Coby sleeping with a basketball is too cute and too funny!
