Wildlife a new challenge

So,,, I am obsessed with working on wildlife pendants.  What a challenge! Blending, colors, design , heat control.,I have put them in the gallery pages to keep track of my progress.   I can find things I like and don't like in each piece.      I have these gorgeous visions in my mind of what I want them to look like, they just aren't there yet.  Glass has been an adventure and always new challenges for me.     I Love my job!!

Holidays are coming soon

Here it is, the end of October and I am stressing.  In a little less than a month we will be setting up at Frontier Mall in Cheyenne, Wy.   Are we going to have enough product?, are we making things people would like?,,, I have been more or less playing for a month, blowing a few ornaments, working on little critters... A lot of experimentation..It is past time to knuckle down and get ready.   Lot's of "Steamboat"  jewlelry,  (wyo logo), , did  I tell you I made the sweetest little snowman the other day?

Summer is coming to an end

Another summer season of outdoor shows is coming to an end.  Two shows left, a break until we go to the mall in Cheyenne for the Christmas run.  I am doing quite a bit more metal work, trying to incorporate my glass when suitable.   We have been having several end of the season gatherings with our craft show friends.   It is so nice when we are away from home we have these special times.  It has been a good year, we thank all those that come in to our booth and support us year after year.

August

Well, I have been blowing ton's of these little aromatherapy bottles.  Plant Therapy is launching a new handmade website on September 1st.   I will be submitting two different styles up for sale on their site.   We are excited for this opportunity

Summer shows

We are off and running!  Aberdeen SD "Art in the Park" and Mandan Rodeo Days are under our belts, this week we are heading to Brookings "Art in the Park".., It is a busy and exciting time for us.  We have worked all winter, it is awesome to see what customers think of our newest creations!  Check our calendar for places and dates of shows we will be showing at. Have a great summer!

 

Musings

Here it is the middle of May.   We have been busy creating, getting everything ready for outdoor shows.  We also use this dormant time to to our doctoring, hopefully nothing serious crops up.

May

We will not be showing the month of May in Minot this year.  I am dealing with some unavoidable medical issues, have to take care of myself for awhile.  We hope to be back next year.  If you are looking for something that is not on our website, contact us as our inventory is extensive.  My apolagies to our loyal customers..see you on the art faire circuit!

Anatomy of glass colors

We are asked what creates the colors?   Here is a quick reference to give you some insight.   Interesting read!

Miss Wyoming

Jessie Allen the current Miss Wyoming was seen shopping in our booth at Frontier Mall.  I really enjoyed visiting with her, she is such a sweet girl.  Very easy to talk with.  She purchased a few items and was gracious enough to let me take a few photos.  A meet such interesting people!
