One World One Heart 2011

Hi, Welcome to my blog.  I am a stained glass, mixed media artist and blogger from the Lone Star State.  I was born and raised in the heart of Texas.  When people think of Texas, they think of cowboys.  When I think of Texas, I think of home.  As a matter of fact we have people from all over the world who call Houston home.   I invite you to visit my blog to see a little part of my corner of this blogger world. You will see my first love (family and life) and my passion for art.  Stained glass remains my hobby of choice with a little rubberstamping and mixed media art thrown in.  So pour your favorite drink, sit down make yourself comfortable and have fun blogging.

Leave me a comment for a chance to win my door prize.  This stained glass heart suncatcher is made with a pink irredized glass.  By the way, don't forget to leave your contact info for the drawing which will take place February 17th. I'll also visit your blog and leave my comments.

Hi Irene and greetings from Australia. Great to meet you and visit your blog. Your lovely heart gift is lovely and I would be thrilled to be the lucky winner. Please come by #9 and say hello.


Hello Irene! Such a lovely medium you work with. I took some stained glass classes many years ago and loved it, but sure could get very expensive in a big hurry! With lots of moving over seas and other places over the years, I got away from much of it, and got more into fibers instead. Your heart is fabulous and someone will be very lucky to win.
Stop by when you get a chance. Wanda in Ohio

I think your mosaics are beautiful and your stained glass is inspiring. Your Happy Chair is a good idea and the trashed panel you turned into something beautiful is so pretty. Your purple cat on the dead garden (your comment not mine) made me chuckle. It's luscious. I could go on, but you have so many comments to read!

Thanks for a chance in your beautiful heart giveaway. Hope to stop back soon.
