Pink Saturday & Lampwork Roses

Happy Pink Saturday!  Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting this weekly event.

I was finally able to spend some time playing on the torch, early in the morning before it got too hot.  I made these two rose sets as well as a few others that I will list later.  When I start making beads, it’s so much fun, I just want to keep making/experimenting with different glass and combinations. You can find these roses in my Etsy shop –  I can’t wait for cooler weather!

Photo Mask Freebie #20

Yayyy! Photo mask #20 – I wanted to try something a bit different this week.  So, I designed a grunge/steampunk style mask.  And, now I think I will take a break from making masks for a bit.  Remember, personal use only – Enjoy!



Pink Saturday and Pink Heirlooms Of Tomorrow

Happy Pink Saturday!  Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting this weekly event.

Today, I am featuring an Heirlooms of Tomorrow, draped lace Lady Figurine.  It was a Christmas gift from my children several years ago.  She has seen better days, but she is perfect to me.  I imagine my boys, going to an antique shop, totally out of their element, looking around, and finding her…

Sewing Pretty With Hello Kitty…

DH pointed out that when I tackle something, I tend to go all out, and then burn out.  Well, I joined a quilting group! The last time I quilted was over 23 years ago, before dear older son was born.  I made a nice new friend, Ellie, who introduced me into her quilting group.  The first week, I lugged my heavy old Singer to quilting, and that was that.  I went shopping for a compact lightweight machine, and this is what I found. A cute Janome Hello Kitty sewing machine! It’s great for piecing and easy to carry around. Two weeks in, and I am working on two quilts!  One for my mom, and the other for my MIL.  I may be ambitious, but I want to make quilts for each of my three children before the year is out.  Hmmm, DH may be right, I may just burn out… Meanwhile, I’m having so much fun!


You’re never too old for Hello Kitty  😉

Happy 4th of July!

Have a safe and fun 4th of July!

As I was walking along taking pictures of July 4th decorations, Hiro walked by…


July 2013 Garden

The weather has been unbearably hot around here, so our early morning walks have been great.  And every time I step out onto our street, I think to myself, I must photograph the beautiful white butterfly bush at the front of our grove – and I finally did.  It just amazes me what beautiful flowers thrive in this heat; well, with a lot of watering of course:
