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.

Busy Bee

I've been a busy bee for a couple of days.  Finally completed a stained glass window panel I have wanted to make for several years.  As a matter of fact there are several pictures I have collected throughtout the years that I would like to make in stained glass.  I keep these pictures in a box.  I get these pictures from several places.  Some pictures are from stained glass books, magazines, coloring books, personal photographs and even from the internet.  Sometimes I come up with an idea for a stained glass piece and make a rough draft drawing on a piece of paper. I have been known to draw on a napkin while eating in a fast food restaurant. There are several napkins in my collective box of ideas. 

It is the end of July and I am beginning to think of Fall and Christmas Art & Crafts Shows.  I have been filling out applications to several shows this season and awaiting a response.  As soon as I am accepted into the shows, I will post them on my blog site.  I try to enter several shows through out Houston and the surrounding areas to make it easy for you to come and see my art work and hopefully find something you like to buy.

The panel I finished Thursday night could be considered a Christmas panel as it has candles and red ribbon, but I believe it could also be used year round.  For the next couple of weeks, I will be working on several textured glass light boxes.  These boxes will fill any room with a golden glow that will warm your holiday season.  Until next time, Peace & Love
