Sue from Sue Beads asked what do lampworkers do with our glass shorts. She got a lots of good tips. I told her about my picture frame I made with my shorts and I added some wonkie beads but I needed them to be flat so I put back on a mandrel slowly put back into the flame got hot and put it into a tea strainer put up to a cool fan and it cracked in half. I glued them on a cheap wood frame with the shorts and used basic mosaic technique. Thats my 2 year old granddaughter in the picture that was 6 years ago. We just got back from watching her soccer game. We live three hours away so I won't see every game which makes me sad. I love watching her play.

I had fun at the torch this weekend made some large focals with hand pulled ribbon cane and murrini chips from Shard Factory on etsy and Aveanue Beads. I added dichroic glass on one, thats my favorite. They take a lot longer to make but it was fun. I should of poked the murrini on some.What do you think?
See the pumpkin We have 5 in there. The corn is almost ready. Tomatoes I don't know what is going on with them had a lot of red tomatoes three weeks ago but lots of green ones now. It's been getting colder at night I wonder if that has anything to do with it. I have enjoyed the garden until I saw the King snake. I tend to be a little garded when I pick the vegetables. Hope everyone had a great week-end.

Holiday week-end free shipping including Monday in my Etsy shop. I will have a few 50 Cent Sunday specials as always. These are beads that have expired from the etsy 6mo time line twice sometimes so they are not doing me any good collecting dust. I rather they go to good homes from my comments they have been well received. Have a great week-end everyone.
