The colors of a stained glass window when the sun shines through is magical, but in a mosaic piece the grout is what makes the colors pop. I have been working with stained glass for over twenty years. I love the sound of the score, breaking and cutting of the glass. The pictures you can create with pieces of glass are endless. It is so exciting to see the final project and selling a piece of art is thrilling. E-mail me if you are interested in purchasing a piece of art.
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.
The Butterfly window panel is finished. The background is a clear glass with what looks like rain drops. The pink wispy boarder glass was chosen to bring out the pink color in the butterfly wings. The butterfly glass was also used on the four corners of the panel. I am happy how it came out. If interested in purchasing, call or e-mail me before my first show which is on October 13th. I have a feeling this panel will sell fast. Click on the photos to get a closer view.
While watching the boxing match this past Saturday, Mrs. Piggy was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The suspect, 16 year old son of Irene, was questioned and released after admitting to accidently breaking Mrs. Piggy's nose. Mr. Piggy was a witness who said Mathew got excited watching the boxing match and hit a shelf which knocked down an object from the shelf and hit Mrs. Piggy on the nose. Mrs. Piggy did not need medical attention right away but was told to see the nearest crafty person as soon as possible. It was Monday night when Crafty Irene looked at Mrs. Piggy's nose. The diagnoses looked good for Mrs. Piggy who's nose will be adhered back together using E-6000. Crafty Irene said these two piggies have been partners for years. I don't even remember when or where I bought them from. It will take about 24 hours for Mrs. Piggy's nose to completely heal. Mathew was not charged and all is forgiven and well in the Maldonado household.
