At long last there are some new Short Fuses pendants in the world.  I have a few more that I will probably post pictures of later, but I just wanted to get these up and out into the world.  You might be able to tell that I’m in a flower phase.  I really like this design with the curl in the stem.  This batch got shipped off to The Funky Door Cafe,  the best place for great coffee and beautiful...

Yep, I pretty much outgrew Halloween when I was 12.  After I got too big to go trick or treating and since I don’t have any kids, there doesn’t seem to be a real reason for me to celebrate this holiday.  I haven’t dressed up for at least a decade, but this year I was invited to a neighbor’s party and costumes were REQUIRED.  What’s a girl to do?  I decided that I needed a costume where...

While house sitting last week, I got to hang out a lot in our newly revamped glass studio.  Yes, it’s still in my friend’s basement, but it got quite the make over.  Unbeknown to me, my friends painted the walls and floor, got a new beautiful table to cut glass on, got better lighting and re-organized the space to make it much easier to find stuff.  I was blown away by the changes.  This new space is...

Today is my cousin’s Birthday. He and I have been pen pals since we were 12.  He has always lived several time zones away.  I was lucky enough to celebrate my cousin’s Birthday when I was on vacation in Canada.  I actually had all of his presents done and ready to go a month early.  Usually he gets a package from me about a month or two after his Birthday, so this was truly a big feat for me. All of his...

I’ve been so busy working on Short Fuses, which has been great!  After the craft fair on Saturday, Diana and I packed up 20 items to give to my mom.  My mom will be in a Polk County craft fair soon and graciously offered to include some of our jewelry.  I’ve also put up a display with pendants in bookstore at the school where I work.  I’m super excited about that.  Diana will put some jewelry...
