Another busy week!

Wow, this week flew by!  I finished two large glass projects for customers.  The first was a 20 x20 inch fall maple leaf panel.
 I am so pleased with the way it came together...finally!  It was one of those projects that had me a bit frustrated at the start. I had a larger leaf cut out and decided it looked like a tree and not a leaf!!!  So I scrapped that idea and came up with this version, which I like much better.  And the customer loved it!!

The second project was a larger version of this rainbow sun catcher.  I did a 16 x 16 panel to hang in a customer's bathroom over her tub.  How relaxing to have a soak and look at all the beautiful colors!

Now on to new things!  I have some ideas for halloween ornaments using scrapbook paper and clear glass.  Pics coming soon!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!

Feeling like fall

Happy Labor Day!  A cool day here in Minnesota, we are getting a preview of things to come!  I just finished a few little suncatchers and wanted to share them.
Fall is such a fun time of the year to decorate inside and out.  And easy!  Just a stop at a farmers market for pumpkins, gourds, mums and indian corn and you are all set!  Adding a fun glass piece, like this pumpkin garden panel, brightens up any flower pot display!
Today I started clearing my pots of straggly summer flowers.  Over the next couple weeks I will be switching them over to mums, kale, twigs and gourds.  Love this time of the year!
