The Gift of Time Together

To continue the theme of whats under your Christmas tree.
Sometimes the presents won't fit under the tree like a beadmaking class for your family and a friend. Last week a friend gave her family the gift of a beadmaking class and a bracelet class the next day. They made their very 1st beads and I annealed them. The next day they made bracelets using their beads. Pretty cool way to show off your 1st beads
Check out Tangerine Tabby's blog from the 22nd to see the results.
What a fun way to spend time together as a family.

Christmas Day 2011

What's under your Christmas tree?

I know there are some happy people wearing their gifts this holiday.
This lovely necklace is now owned by the the wonderful woman who owned the first gallery my work was accepted displayed and sold in. I am so glad she is the owner of this necklace. I know it has a good home and will be worn and loved by someone who really appreciates glass.

Another necklace that found a happy home this holiday is this gypsy heart.

Whether is was glass or something else I hope you found your heart desire this year!
Merry Christmas and Happy holidays

2012 Workshops!

Yeah! The brochure is done and going to the printer!
The website is updated with 2012's workshops.
This is an accomplishment in it's self and with my poor old computer that locks up with each task it was a monumental task.
I am glad it is done!
There are exciting workshops for 2012. Great visiting instructors and generally a whole lot so fun and learning planned.
Check it out!

Fiery Friday was a blast as usual. Look at what Nicole made during Fiery Friday. She's pretty good - for a fuser - I'm just teasing her she has become quite accomplished at the torch. Her twisted canes end up in some beautiful fused pieces.

And a reminder the open house and shopping opportunity are this week end starting Friday.
I am busy putting together some pretty trinkets to adorn yourself or gift your friends.
This is a post and run- back to work

Winter is Here!

Winter has arrived in South Texas.  For the rest of the country our "cold" weather would be a welcome
cool "ish" day. But for those of us who can survive 105 without melting anything below 55 is cold.
It has been a steady daytime temperature in the 40's and at night has dipped down to freezing and last night was 29 Brrrrrr.
The new studio is cozy and warm until the hood is turned on! As with most flameworking studio's it is a battle with the outside air and the A/C or heating unit trying to keep the inside air a nice temperature. So the last few days of beadmaking have been well lets say refreshing!
I'm getting ready for a Holiday Open House and Shopping Extravaganza here at Dream Fire Studio.
Friday December 16th 4pm-10pm (store is open 11am-)
Saturday December 17th 10am -6 pm or later if there is wine left

Dos Mimis who share the studio space with me are busy fusing all sorts of fun things for customers to give as gifts. I have been working making plenty of cute earrings and necklaces for gifts ready to buy and give.
I think I must have Christmas candy on the brain as you can see above.
I know it has been a month since the last post. Time just flies this time of year and I have been quite busy.

The new schedule for 2012 will be up on the "new" website by the end of the week. I have the brochures ready for printing and will announce the visiting instructors too.

Save the date! January 14th 2012 for the grand opening of Dream Fire Glass Studio. It will be a party for sure. Yes even a Pinata with more than just candy inside.
Well that is it for now got to get back on the torch.
