I know nowadays it's hip to have or want to have a scooter. But, just so you know, I have wanted one of these things for about 8 years. When the only place you could get one was eBay and shipped from Vietnam! Now they are everywhere and I turn green with envy every time I see one. Granted, Houston isn't the best place to be zipping around on one of these but with more smart cars, smaller cars and less and less monster SUVs on the road, it's getting better. One day, if you see me on one of these, honk and wave!

My Workspace

This is the window in my office...where I put everything together. I have a place in the garage to cut and grind the glass, but since it's so hot outside, I come inside for the rest. I sold two of my favorite pieces last week and now I'm missing them. Oh well, I can make more now. Yeah!

My Favorite Place in the World

This is a picture of the Medina River which runs by my parents new house. When my kids were small we would visit this place every summer. Sitting on the bank (rocks) of this river or floating in a tube is the most peaceful place in the world.

God is Good....two days in a row I have made the front page. Very exciting. Just when I'm getting a little discouraged because my sales have screeched to a halt....I get a little encouragement......:-) God is Good.

Beautiful Raspberry Rose Felted Brooch

This is a very pretty brooch by a close artist friend of mine (lol, me actually). It is felted wool with a pin back. Just something that I tried. You can see other things I do with yarn, just click on the picture. It'll take you to my shop Friendly Banter. I had to have an alternative outlet because my glass studio is in my garage and I can't work out there in the heat. I go crazy not doing anything so I picked up my crochet hooks again. But, as it turns out, I can't stay away from glass for long. Much to my family's dismay, who now have to share their kitchen with my soldering station! I can't figure out how to cut and grind the glass inside...too messy...but we'll see what I can come up with.

This is my first post in my blog. I really don't know what I'm doing (as you can tell by this GIANT picture) so I'm learning as I go with a little help from my teenage daughter. Be patient and watch my skills develop!
