Special Order for Bookmarks

Yes, bookmarks. I really do love doing these up for people - it combines two of my favorite things: reading and glass. I mean, really, how can you go wrong? This set is only in the beginning stages - in the end there will be ten bookmarks, which means 20 beads. My friend has requested them to all be basically the same as they are going to be given to her bookclub people as gifts.

So far so good...

Yup - the kiln fired perfectly and everything looked great coming out of it. That's right folks, no more kiln sitting for this gal!

Last beads I did...

Were made on my birthday...which was about 3 months ago.


On the plus side, I should have the kiln firing tonight which means that all the goodies I've made in the last while will be ready to be annealed.

Okay, so maybe the last ones *weren't* done on my just feels like that.

Back in the Saddle Again

Well, not so much 'saddle' as 'behind the torch'.

The difference is subtle, but there.

I haven't been up to much aside from GETTING MARRIED and getting accepted into SFU's PDP. Professional Development Program...which, taken out of context, doesn't mean a whole lot. Or it could mean all the wrong things. Anyway, it's the last year of educational training that I need to take before I can become a teacher. I'll be hightailing it to the Burnaby campus then be posted out in Maple Ridge and Mission (or something like that...).

I'll post pictures later on the (very) few pieces I've done in the past *cough* months.
