About Me

Houston, Texas, United States
Welcome to my Blog Site :) I am so happy you stopped in. I am a part time worker, wife, mom and artist/crafter. I became a grandmother for the first time about a year ago. My passions are Stained Glass and Mixed Media Art. I am a Texas girl living in a house that my father and grandfather built in 1945. I have a loving husband and two teenage boys. My boys are talented musicians who make my life complete. I hope you enjoy reading my posts about music, my boys and grandson and just about life in general. So grab your favorite choice of drink, sit back, relax and happy blogging.

Finished Crash Glass Project

Here is the photo of my finished crash glass project.
As you can see I have grouted the panel and added a cast iron cross at the top and a coin with a prayer at the bottom right.  The Prayer reads:  I said a prayer for you today, I know God must have heard.  I felt the answer in my heart, although he spoke no word. 

This project has a personal meaning to me as the religious cards used were in my collection of religious cards I have collected from funerals I have attended.  The Praying hands is from my Mother-In-Law's funeral and the Sorrowful Mother is from my Grandmother's funeral.  It took a while to finish this project as I did not know how to cut the nail off the cast iron cross.  (See my previous posts: Cast Iron Crosses and Old New Toy)

I love this! although your angels (marble, glass) are cute, this one has such meaning, texture and depth. Really awesome. I would so love to get down to Texas and create with you. Although I remain a bit afraid of power tools. I've taken classes with Michael DeMeng, and he's very big on them.
