Stained Glass Mobiles – Part 1

diy stained glass mobile

Back in September I made my first stained glass mobile. It was a gift for one of my German relatives who got married over the summer. I can’t seem to stop being enamored with glass circles. Cutting them, connecting them, etc. – I do hope someday to branch out into other stuff!

Chameleon Mural – Part 7

I cannot believe that after 14 months I am finally DONE!!!  I am floored.  This is definitively the largest and most complex painting I’ve ever done.  It’s the first time I’ve painted on large canvas.  My typical medium is small square wooden blocks.  It was a learning curve, for sure!

Since I’ve been sick for 12 weeks, I haven’t really had anything to blog about, so I’ve been writing you a story instead.  This is my 2nd foray into short story writing.  This story was inspired by something hubby and I witnessed from our backyard on October 8th.  So I guess you can say this story is “Based on Actual Events” 🙂

Stained Glass Stars – Part 7

A couple of weeks ago my coworker & friend Diane heard I work with stained glass.  She had tried it years ago and is thinking about taking it up again.  I offered to go over the basics with her if she came over.  So 3 Sunday’s ago she came by and we spent a couple of hours playing with stained glass 🙂
