Thoughtful Photo
Posted March 2, 2012

I was visiting my mom last weekend and took this photo.  I am going to make a glass panel of this photo for her birthday.

I'm just a glass machine
Posted February 17, 2012

Ever since being laid off a month ago, I have made a LOT of glass projects.  My mosaiac lighthouse table, followed by a mosaiac lighthouse panel to match.  Then wine and cheese which is so popular, I made this one for a friend and have one more to make for my cousin.

Mosaiac in Progress
Posted January 24, 2012

I bought an end table at a yard sale last summer and am finally getting around to doing my magic with it.  I have to go get some square tile to go around the edges of it, then fill in with glass scraps, let that dry, then do my grout.  It'll be a be beautiful conversation piece in my living room.

Farewell, Cranberry Splash...
Posted January 7, 2012

I LOVE Sierra Mist's Cranberry Splash.  Problem is, it only is available 4 months out of the year.  So today I took my husband's advice and asked if there was any left - there were some liters out on the floor but non-diet.  The guy asked me how many and I'd say as many as he had unless it was 40 or 50.

Spacerock.com Turns 15
Posted December 13, 2011

Way back in 1996, a website was born - this one!  Now it's become my primary 'sandox.'  I'm a web developer and this is where I come to play.  The site has become quite a jQuery playground lately - not so apparent to the viewer, but my management system that runs in the back is going largely to a JavaScript GUI.

Looks like it's from the set of "Mad Men"
Posted December 4, 2011

I'm said to have great Flea Market and Garage Sale Chi.  Let's see...last summer I found (an oldie but goodie) HP laser printer for $10 and it works great...a pressure cooker (BIG one) for $7 for canning, and the list goes on.

Don't Touch the Remote
Posted November 26, 2011

Brutus is a funny cat and he guarded the remote on Thanksgiving.  I guess he wanted to make sure he could watch some bowl games...not sure how he found out about them...

Getting ready for Turkey Day
Posted November 21, 2011

So I'm getting ready for Turkey Day - I had hand paintined glasses last year and have more guests this year, so I went to the dollar store - and they had the same ones again.  I spent the afternoon painting 6 more.  They came out pretty nice.

Revamping the Home Workspace
Posted November 16, 2011

So work gave me vpn - which means I can do work from home.  Problem is, the nature of the content I work on...anyone passing by could see my monitors and what I'm looking at/working on...so I had bought this wonderful dual monitor arm and set it up on the side 'return' of the desk which it was designed for anyway...

First Fire o' 2011/2012 Winter
Posted November 6, 2011

It went from Indian Summer to brrrr cold almost overnight.   Our 'middle' fireplace puts out a lot of heat - our landlord mentioned this to us (the only thing we ever burned in it was duraflames....) so this was our first actual wood fire in it.
