August 19, 2009

The month is just flying by - it's my birthday month you know - I used to have just a birthday week, but this year, I've changed it to a birthday month. In that month, I will have visited my son on the West coast, and my daughter on the East coast, and spent some time at home, who could ask for more. I've also been experimenting with more boro - and have some results worth bragging about - more to come later - I think I'm hooked.

August 17, 2009

It's been awhile since I've posted - sort of been blahhh where beads are concerned....but for the last couple of days, I've tried my hand again at Boro - boro has given me headaches in the past, maybe it's just what happens when one tries a new medium - and boro is certainly a new medium compaired to soft glass - no compairsons. Today, I'm proud of what came out of the kiln. Some are still experiments, and will be priced as such, a couple are real keepers. Check out the "clearance" items on my artfire shop the next couple of

On another note, my daughter and I had an excellent visit with my son in Vancouver last week - full of exhausting activities - like climbing the Chief in Squamish and the Grouse Grind in Vancouver....exploring all the artists at Grandville Island, running along the water, and watching the Policemen and Firefighter's world games.
