Updated Glass Shop Open for Business

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!


  1. I'd be bummed to miss a trip to meet up with Laurie, too! I have one of her beautiful fairies hanging in my bay window!

    How exciting about your shop area! I yearn for a dedicated space to do my you'll have to excuse my envy! It looks like your new space is going to be a great oneto create in!

    P.S. Congratulations on the upcoming addition!!
