Christmas 2009

Christmas, 2009.

We had my family over to the house, plus friends and friends of friends. This is a photo that my brother Jon took with his iphone using a pano app. Very cool. That is me on the far left sitting on the couch with a beehive hairdo. David (not pictured) made another wonderful Christmas dinner. It changes every year, this time we had Sour Brat en. Very nice and tangy. It was great. A lot of good conversation was had by all. Later that night, we skipped out and saw Sherlock Holmes. Was a fun movie. I can’t wait to see more!

What will my New Year resolution be this year? Will I keep it through out the year? Will I even make a resolution? Either way, I will lift my glass, and toast to the end of 2009, and to the beginning of 2010. To a new decade, a new beginning. May we all become wealthy beyond our wildest expectations with love, joy and happiness. May we all have a clear direction of where we want to be and what we want to accomplish. May we all reach our goals. And, may everyone be nice, not just to your neighbors, but to everyone you see and meet.

This last year was good, This coming year WILL BE GREAT!..

Class in my studio was AWESOME

This past weekend, I taught a class at my studio. It was so fun. There was a street fair going on right outside of my studio, so at lunch, we would head out there, eat some vendor food, and cruse the show. We talked with a few glass fusers, and also Josh Mazet and his dad Dave was there. We talked to both of them about marbles. We were very stoked and inspired to go back to our torches.

Here are the pieces we made. It was such a blast!!!

It was so much fun to teach at my studio. I was a bit worried, but I LOVED IT!!! My students were Great!!!! We got out the Thompson Enamels and played with background enameling to go with our painted pieces. We pulled stringers to apply on top. It was very, very fun!

If you would like to be put on my mail list for classes, send me an email at
