Happy Thanksgiving!

Being a "glass half empty" kind of person, it's so easy for me to loose focus on all the things I am thankful for. I won't bore you with a long list of people (they know who they are), nor will I list all of the wonderful opportunities that have come my way. However, I would like to give a shout out to God. Yes, I'm thankful for God himself. The more I learn about him the more I want to know. He fulfills all the shortcomings in my life that matter. He shows me how small I am in His grand scheme, yet how critically important I am in that I am the only "me" and He would have given His son for me even if I were the only person on Earth - ever. So, here's a shout out to you, God, for all you are.

On a lighter note....

Here's a pic of the little Zo dog in her turkey bandana wishing us a happy Thanksgiving...

And here are some pictures of some bead sets (Yes! Sets!) and a garden floral that are going on Ebay shortly...

New Beads on Ebay!

Hey all:

I just wanted to do a quick post and let you know that I've just listed most of my inventory on ebay at ridiculously low prices!! Click here to check 'em out!

I plan to make more beads and start some bangles tomorrow. Wooo hooo!

Is It Spring Yet?

For some strange reason I've been on a spring floral kick today. Have a great week!

I'm Famous!

Hello and happy Saturday (my most favorite day of the week). There are just a few new things going on.

First, I'm currently the spotlight artist at ISLAGA.org. ISLAGA stands for Indiana Society of Lampwork and Art Glass Artists. I've been a member of ISLAGA for several years and I can tell you there's no nicer group of lampworkers around. Other lampworkers have read through our forum and said "You guys actually like each other!" I just had to laugh. I think there is a strong sense of humility and genuine respect for each person's dignity and talent no matter what level or how experienced they are. ISLAGA has created a great environment for me and others to grow as a person and an artist and I am very grateful to all who have participated and made it happen. Anyway, click here to check out my spotlight article and the ISLAGA website.

Second, I would like to introduce you to my nephew, Jacob. This is his senior picture. He is currently studying Computer Technology in his first year of college. Jake and his brother Ben are my heart and I'm sure they have no idea how much I love them! I'll introduce you to Ben someday soon. I am so lucky to have two special nephews!

New Beads

I finally cleaned up my bead room (I'll try to take a picture of that soon) and took some pics of some recent beads. I think I'll put them up on Etsy soon.
