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.

Baby Faces in Stain Glass

Everytime I wear this necklace, I am asked where did I get it.  I bought the necklace from Target, but I made the charm attached to it.  On one side is a picture of my first son, John and the other is a picture of my younger son, Mathew.  I scanned and cropped the original pictures and printed only their faces in black and white.  I then sandwiched the pictures between two pieces of glass and soldered them together.  I used a lobster claw to attach the soldered charm to the necklace.  I love to wear this necklace and my teen boys always ask to see their cute little smiling faces.
