HAF Hook Up! / Familiar with Berwick, PA?
« on: November 11, 2012, 09:08:56 AM »
I hope to go to Berwick sometime in the future, but was just wondering if anyone is familiar with it? 
Although I often claim to be a native of Albuquerue, NM - I was actually born in Berwick, but my parents moved here when I was barely 2 mos old -  if I had been born on time, I could have been  born here in Alb. 

Art / "Sanctuary" Hand painted art glass vase
« on: November 09, 2012, 03:29:04 PM »
One of my favorite pieces, "Sanctuary" is a 5 1/4 tall x 3 1/4" wide ginger jar style glass vase.   This landscape scene is based on a place where I lived at  the base of a mountain for 11 years.  I would often sit on my front steps, I could see for miles and miles and miles overlooking the valley and mountains.   The scene is very minimized and somewhat stylized.

The way the pics turned out, the vase looks to be the same height as a votive candle holder on my studios front page!  They aren't the same height!

I love being able to find unique ornaments, and had fun putting this one together!

General Discussion / Ornaments

I started giving my kids ornaments each year starting with their first, ditto with my grandkids -  I love finding unique ornaments so I made a highlight of some of the fabulous ones on HAS.  Big part of the reason I started painting my own.

General Discussion / What to Call these!

Well, ok obviusly they are "snakes" but I'm completely stumped on the title and also the section to put them in ion the shop!
Story behind these - my 2 1/2 yr-old granddaughter Evie was playing around with a belt - pretending it was a snake - while I don't usually mess with  the kids creativity the metal belt buckle swinging around just didn't feel safe! So I asked her if she would like for me to make a snake for her with yarn. YES was the reply.  and then I made some more.

red snake is 65"

Gray snake is 41"

I made several for the kids to play with - they not only got used as snakes but as "necklaces" too.

Creative Creations / Stained Glass Great Green Ship Suncatcher
« on: October 18, 2012, 05:54:17 PM »
I'm pretty sure I posted one or two of these on the forum back in August but I finally got this one listed -

Designed by my 12 year old grandson, Kai  using scrap pieces of stained glass -

He did very little grinding, just enough to take the sharp edges down, joint effort putting the copper foil tape on, and then I soldered it. 

Listed here:

miss the kid!

Art / Bouquet of Violets Hand Painted Artistic Ornatment
« on: October 18, 2012, 05:28:49 PM »
Funny, violets are not one of my favorite flowers, but this is one of my favorite ornaments. Hand painted on a 3" clear glass ornament - oops forgot to list the size on the listing! Two pics of the same ornament.

I think this one actually stunned me when it was  finished - I was like - I did that! noooooooooooo. Yeah I did!  :laugh: I was  :laugh:ing I was so excited by it!

actually made it under my other shop, reflections

It's possible I posted this not too long ago - but just listed it on my other shop, Reflections,  on HAS so thought I'd put it here too!
