Heat Waaaave!

Why did I wait until the hottest and wettest and most humid week of the year (so far) to make some new fused glass pieces? Fortunately the kiln wasn't running when the power went out this morning. The dishwasher was, though. Yeah, it got pretty moist here. Disgusting. But I love the new cabochons (flat-backed, slightly domed glass "gems") that I'm making. This one is about 2" long. I wish you could see how it glitters, and the depths of color and pattern. So cool! Or should I say hot?

I got a really nice gift today. I read the SkyBluePink Newsletter (you should, too!) and Christina gave my book a really nice plug. Thanks Christina. The Margarita is in the mail! And anybody who wants a great deal on art charm and other supplies should sign up for the SkyBluePink newsletter. That's where I get a lot of my supplies. Their slogan is "Cool Stuff For Non-Fancy Prices." It's true! And no, I don't get anything for endorsing SBP. But you'll thank me.

Oooooh, pretty! And for the record, I too, love SBP's goodies!

Oh that is the most gorgeous piece of fused glass I've ever seen. I don't suppose you make them to sell????????

Can't wait to get your new book. Congratulations.

Where have you been all my arty life?
I just discovered you and love your blog.
Amazon has pictures of inside your book so I can see that it's a 'gotta have it' book to add to my how-to library...
Lovely ideas...

Hi Lorraine,
Thanks, I'm glad you like it. And OF COURSE I make them to sell. I have an Etsy site all set up, and nothing in the shop!

I think I'll need a few weeks to get that under control. I've never sold anything online before (years of art shows, but never mail order).

I'll make a note to let you know when I get my act together.

Hey Susie,
I've been here all your arty life, just waiting for you to find me...LOL.
Thanks so much for the nice comments. I hope you have as much fun with the book as I did!
