Here is a little taste of what is to come. My twisties in "action". Love the snowmen!

Saturday, October 20, 2007

Look what I did! I am soooo excited. I finally figured out what to do with all of those little ends of glass that I have laying around. For some reason it never occured to me until this weekend... go figure. So I practiced making twisties..for my snowmen scarves. Not bad if I do say so myself. Not to mention the fact that is it soooo much FUN! :)

New Jewelry

Here are a few things that I have created lately. I made a watch for my mom's birthday and finally got it sent to her after I wore it a few times. So I figured I ought to make one for myself. I have been practicing my encased beads so that is what the lampwork beads are. They turned out pretty good (imo). :)
Last night I decided I needed to get in the Halloween spirit, so while at work (don't tell my boss) I made this ghosty bracelet. I have a couple sets of ghosty beads and some pumpkins still for sale in my etsy shop if you feel the "spirit" move you and you need a ghosty for yourself.
This weekend I will probably get busy making snowman beads. I made a bunch last winter and they were pretty fun to do. I will post my creations here next week.
Have a great weekend!

Creation "IS" Messy - or maybe it is just "ME"!

There was a recent thread in the etsy glass artists forums about studios, and everyone posted there studio pictures there. It was interesting and fun to see how people work and create, so I thought I would put a picture or two of mine here. If you want to see the "just completed" pictures i.e. "Clean" of my studio they are on my website. Here is a look into my little world. :)

Last of the Roses

I have 32 rose bushes in my yard, and it is going to snow tomorrow. I am sooooo sad. So I decided that I would cut the last few good roses and bring them in for a vase, then I decided I better take a picture of them. So here they are. Also a few pictures of my front yard. Hope you enjoy!

Long time - no blog

Hi, just thought I ought to write a little in my blog, just to keep people coming back for more. :) LOL. It has been a busy week at work but it is now FRIDAY!!!! Yipee!!! and I am dreaming about all the beads that I will get to make this weekend. Hopefully it won't just be a dream.
Supposedly it is going to snow here tomorrow and be kinda yucky, so once the errands are done and the grandson visited, it is bead making time. I plan on working on learning how to encase beads this weekend. It is not something that I have spent a lot of time on. Also I'm thinkin' FRIT.
We (Etsy Glass Artists) are having our First Anniversary Sale starting(I believe) next Friday, so I need to stock up my store with a bunch of new pretties.
My fiance and I went to the circus last Saturday. It was Ringling Brothers. I can barely remember the last circus I went to and I think that was in a tent. This one was in the Energy Solutions Arena (formerly the Delta Center), and it just wasn't quite the same. No hay, or mud or animal smells, like I seem to remember the last one having. LOTS of kiddies tho, sheesh, we were surrounded by them. I think we were the only people there without rugrats clinging to us. :) It was an ok time tho. The lions and elephants were cool. I wasn't too keen about the hot dog that kept me returning to the bathroom tho - can you say food poisoning! Oh well.
I can't imagine what it costs to take a whole family to the circus. Especially in Utah, where people have 4 or more kids, at least. Plus all the food and the required light up toy, noise maker that every kid seemed to have. What a racket that is. (Wish I had thought of it!)
Well that is about it for now. I did recently put some new crystals in my store so if you are interested go check them out. More later. Have a great weekend.
