There is good news and bad news. First the bad. We were suppose to be on our trip south to see a great friend of mine, Laurie of The Looking Glass to celebrate the marriage of her oldest son Matt & his new wife Maureen. But, due to the horrible weather that we are continually getting, we are not going to be able to make the trip. I am really bummed about it, but I guess you can't fight Mother Nature. So far yesterday we received 8" of snow and more to come tomorrow!
Now the good. I came upon a really great deal of stained glass materials and my husband decided to surprise me with a new work table complete with slots for my glass and some cubbies where I could store the smaller pieces. As well as a section up the middle that holds the came and lead. It has this neat top where I can solder on. We are also planning on adding some more lights and he has already built me a light box. So,the room is coming along.
Now that things are a lot more organized, I can begin my glass projects again!
So, hopefully, soon, you will start seeing some new glass projects of mine! I am thinking Spring right about now! Hope you are all staying warm and have a wonderful Christmas!

Don't you just love to get the family together and have a fun "game night". We do. It's getting harder and harder to spend time together doing something fun. This new game table that I painted has a nice collection of some of our favorite games, monopoly, backgammon, Yahtzee,cards, dice, scrabble etc. This table comes with 4 wooden chairs. I hope that the person who buys it will have just as much fun with their family on this table that I had making it.

They then made the hole wider, and she cut steps into the hard packed drift. Her husband brought the feedlot payloader and started breaking apart the drifts.

Another friend called last night to tell me about a project that was coming up that I may be interested in. It is a large project where I would be able to paint a series or at least one mural for a town that sounded very exciting. I want to do some research on this and make it happen. I was sharing this with a friend (boy, I do have friends :) ).She told me that even if I didn't "make the cut" for the painting of the murals that I could always be a part by getting coffee or cleaning up after the artists. I was thinking what is wrong with me and why wouldn't I be considered for the "making it group" when I started talking with my sister Chris, as we were talking I decided that one day I would be rich and famous. (This is my positive spin :))Of course, that day would be when I was dead! That is when most people get famous right??
People would one day read about me in their Art History classes and learn how very tragic my ending was. This makes you even MORE famous I believe! I can't do the ear cutting off thing. I must be unique in this. I think I will be found in the corner of my art studio, dead from chewing off my own arm!. Of course, it would have happened years before my body was found, as having all guys in my house, no one will notice! My faithful dog would be at my side. He would have not lost much weight as he would have found my chocolate stash and sparingly ate that.
People, in going over my personal belongings would then take notice of how my drawings were really nice and yes, maybe they should have bought some. Oh, that painting is good. Maybe the pantry was NOT the place to hang it that the mice really didn't get frightened from it!
And that yes, in fact, I WAS good enough to be in the mural painting catagory!
Have a wonderful and thanks for reading! :)
P.S. I'm really not a meat eater, so I may have to alter the death ending. I'll keep thinking.

I made a sale today! Yeah me! I was in a bit of a small slump and I am now revived!
I have some of my things for sale at a nice store called The Hollow Fencepost. They specialize in custom building furniture primarily built from reclaimed barn wood. They also create furniture from reclaimed cabinets, salvaged architecture from buildings being taken down, and new lumber (if specially requested). I work with them when they need some custom painting done. Anyway, just thought I would share my slanted table that is no longer mine! Hope they enjoy it.
