Slump!
Posted April 10, 2011

So I got a cool vase at a garage sale yesterday but it turned into a puddle.  DOH.  So I tried a little blue bottle I had gotten at the flea market LAST week to try again...as soon as I saw it starting I shut off the kiln but it was too late.  Ugh.  I WILL get this right one of these days...

My latest Pane
Posted March 16, 2011

I did this in "Gallery Glass" in 1983 - Gallery Glass is where you squeeze the 'leading' as latex stuff out of a bottle (tracing a pattern) onto clear glass, then you use eyedroppers to drop the 'stain' in the pools formed by the latex once it dries.  I have wanted to do this in actual stained glass ever since, so finally, I've done it!

Attitude for the Year
Posted January 21, 2011

There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING

Holiday Newsletter
Posted December 23, 2010

Greetings!  2010 has been quite a year for us.  I won’t go into lengthy details, but basically it took us until about the end of March to finish moving from the old house to the rental house (which does not look like a rental at all!).  My old house looked like the rental!  The old house sat vacant until the end of August when the short sale finally went through.  It was bad - high school kids used the back yard to party, someone broke in, it just went on and on.

Newest Glass Related Hobby
Posted November 28, 2010

One thing leads to another I guess - I got this Fuseworks Microwve Kiln - it has a little firing area big enough for jewelry pieces.  4 minutes and you have a piece.  So I got a book on wirewrapping so I could do something with these pieces I've been working on and look at this!

Famous Cat Lover
Posted October 14, 2010

I got an email from a true blue friend of mine with a slide show, and there was one photo of a young Marlon Brando with a typewriter in his lap and a sleeping white kitty on his shoulders.  I found this photo, obviously taken at the same time.

Fair Entries
Posted July 14, 2010

Rather than entering pickles and preserves at the fair this year, I decided to enter products from my newest hobby-stained glass.  We were allowed to enter two per category, so I entered these two in Beginning Stained Glass, and my ship in a bottle in the regular 'foil' Stained glass category.
