The Big Cleanout
Posted December 29, 2012

I like to make a clean start at the beginning of each year...so I started yesterday with the bedroom.  Rearranged some furniture and did a major league clean out of general things that I had forgotten I even had, therefore, GONE.  Today I'm going to clean out the computer room.  Fremont Freecycle, stand by!

ANNOYING Christmas Song
Posted December 4, 2012

I have a memory of being about 3 or 4 years old, and the doorbell rang, and there was a huge group of Christmas Carolers on the porch.  They were singing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" and holding out a can (for donations).  I didn't know what to do; a little kid doesn't have any money, so I closed the door and they wouldn't go away!

It's turkey time again!  Not to be outdone by my scooter-riding friend, Joan, (this would have been quite a sight to see - I wish she had taken pictures!), today I got out before the rain started and got the qualifying amount of groceries to buy one turkey and get one free.

Some Cat Panels
Posted September 27, 2012

I've been at the glass again - doing some cat panels.  Oreo was posing so regally in front of my peacock piece, I decided to take him and do him in glass.

Proud as a Peacock
Posted July 29, 2012

WHEW.  It took me 2 weeks to make this!  I don't  know how many pieces it is but I'm thinking a few hundred.

Interesting DVD Title

I am on a list where you get information/spinning resources (spinning as in spinning yarn).  I had to laugh and post this...

The Eclipse
Posted May 20, 2012

This was cool!  I wish I had known about it a few months ago - I would have arranged to go to a place not so far from here to see the total eclipse.

Christening the New Smoker
Posted May 5, 2012

Last year, my first paycheck from FriendFinder helped me purchase a new gas grill.  I noticed when I smoked my turkey on Thanskgiving, the turkey barely fit, so I knew a 2012 goal would be a larger smoker.

The world is his pillow
Posted April 10, 2012

Brutus's favorite hobby is to eat followed closely by laying around.  He spends most of his days on the living room couch with his head resting on a large stuffed cat I used to have at work on my cabinet.

A 3D Panel
Posted April 2, 2012

I've been at it again - making more glass panels.  This one is particularly interesting as I have done the suspension parts of the bridge (cables) with copper wire and super thin copper rods.

Sammy Panel
Posted March 18, 2012

I was at my mom's and took the picture on the right and looked at that and decided that needed to be done in glass.  It's done except for the wooden frame.

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.
