We had a wild storm last night.  The weather forecast called for rain all weekend long.  Of course, it was sunny and beautiful both Saturday and Sunday.  About 7pm, we got severe thunderstorm warning for several close by counties.  We thought nothing of it because we are used to the rain in Portland. My husband and I were watching a movie while outside kept getting brighter and brighter.  It was so...

This picture was taken up at Crater Lake two summers ago.  My cousin was visiting from Korea which gave us the excuse to stay at the Crater Lake Lodge.  Amazing!  If you ever get the chance to go to Crater lake, do.  It’s so beautiful.  I will post other pictures from the trip someday. My cousin, husband, and I were walking after dinner in the dark.  We started playing around with the digital...

My last fused class was on slumping.  I didn’t think that I would like slumping all that much.  Well, I love it.  It’s so much fun and a lot easier than it looks.

I was lucky enough to spend the first 12 years of my life in Redmond, Oregon.  Most of those years were spent out of town in the country.  It was a trek to our nearest neighbors and my sister and I would take turns turning the antenna so we could watch the one TV channel we received.  We had the freedom to roam the land until dusk.  It’s a freedom children don’t get today, especially in the city. ...

My third glass class was all about inclusions.  Again, my favorites are this top group.  The piece on the top left was my attempt to recreate a necklace that I love.  It looks pretty close to the original.  I can’t wait to mount that piece and wear it.  The piece on the bottom right is this week’s leaf motif.  The leaf is copper foil that I cut out and drew vines.  I really like this one...

The nice thing about a three day weekend is having the time to be creative.  I actually found time to make these earrings.  It’s the first thing I’ve done outside of a class in a the last month or so. I did realize that I need a new soldering iron.  Mine does not stay hot.  I have to wait for it to re-heat after every use.  It’s not very convenient and it also doesn’t allow for a good...
