Sabbath Time

sabbath

When I was younger, I didn’t understand Sabbath time like I do now. My family didn’t practice it and it’s not something we talked about. As I got older, I thought that Sabbath was about “not doing work” which I found very difficult, because I’m someone that likes to keep doing something. I can’t just […]

Glass Cobalt Bottle Flowers

In continuing with my obsession about glass sculptures, I discovered a fun little project using bottles and smaller bowls. Put them on a garden stake, and they make flowery looking sculpture type things! And no, they aren’t new, but they’re new to me.

Linky Saturday: May 2015

Is it just me or is May really a long month this year? You know what I mean, it seems like we have a taste of spring, then freezing cold weather, and the weeks just go on and on. I sound like an old lady, and you know what? I am!

Teal and White Glass Sculpture

This weekend I was happy because I got to make a big ole glass sculpture and I haven’t done one of those for a long time. Oh sure, I’ve made some solar light ones, and those are fun, too, but there’s something about a full-sized sculpture that is really satisfying to me. I like the […]

Spring has been trying to arrive, but I think she’s been a bit lazy. Probably vacationing in a warm place and isn’t in too much of a hurry to come up to the Midwest right now. She’s been taunting us, allowing her buddy Winter to have at it around these parts. This is a picture […]

April 2015 Link Love

I’ve been brimming with joy after another productive month. It feels very much like spring cleaning all around, throughout my house, my work life…

I’ve been chomping at the bit to make some new glass sculptures, and now that we’re in our new place I can finally do it. It appears that I need more glass! I’ve been avoiding buying it at rummages because I didn’t want to have to move it, so all we took with us was […]
