Sunday Show Off for December 19, 2010

Happy Sunday!  Well, today I wanted to show off something I am proud of, because these were made by my current glass student.  She had a part in most of these, and the wreath was what I made for her when she was going to town making all these trees.  We make something different each lesson, and though we were not planning on making Christmas trees that day, our short session, the last one for this year, was well spent making these adorable trees.  We had a few that didn't make it into this shot, but that's OK, these are the best! I am very proud of her, and wanted to share these with you guys.

We have a good time every lesson, and she is a truly kind and pleasant person to be around.  I enjoy teaching her, and am fortunate to know her too.  Thanks for sharing this glass pride with me, and I'll see you later in the week, to stop by and say Merry Christmas!!!

Sunday Show-Off for December 12, 2010

I know, I've been offline a lot this holiday season so far.  We have a lot of shows during this time of year, and this is the first day I've actually gotten a full night's sleep! :) Yay for sleep!  Anyhow, no show today, so I'll be able to catch up on my blogging, laundry, reading, and of course, more glasswork for this week's shows.  In the midst of our busy show schedule, I had a challenging custom order for a set of green tree frogs. A nice customer sent me a photo of a tree frog and asked if it was possible to represent the little fella in glass.  Well, after some sufficient planning and practice, she was able to pick them up from our booth Friday, and here's my last-minute photo:

Yes, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, and they are HARD to make!  She was just ecstatic about them, and said they turned out so much better than she'd imagined was possible.  I love that kind of feedback, so I wanted to share it with you guys.  Have a great Sunday, and thanks for stopping in!
