Hi All, It’s me. I was looking over my blog and realized that there were so few posts over the last year that I probably wouldn’t even qualify as an occasional blogger; but I’m going to keep trying, lol. I still owe everyone an update on the Inventory Sale I had last May. I have a few pictures of more display trays that were made, so I’ll post a short catch up on that after the first of the year. Yes, I will!
But, today, I wanted to get on to wish everyone New Year blessings and share a quick post on a fun recycled bottle ornament that was fused together for this Christmas season. I know not everyone does glass art, but these pretty little ornaments combine both my love for glass and recycling/repurposing. And, they’re my favorite pale green color too.
They’re so simple that I thought just a picture collage would suffice.
After fusing, I used a crystal snowflake and smaller crystal beads threaded through the kiln formed channel for embellishing, but any variety of beads and charms can be used. I like to seal jump rings and wire connections with a bit of solder so everything stays neatly in place.
They look so delicate and shiny!
I’d like to try a long dangle with three of these hooked together, but haven’t had time to figure it out yet. When and if I do I will definitely share it too.
Another, more traditional, fused ornament design was offered to my followers again this year; a set of happy little gingerbread people.
Sadly, at the moment, the terracotta brown color used for these is out of stock everywhere. It’s the preferred color for my candy house and reindeer too, so I hope it or something very similar is back in production soon so it’s available by early next fall.
Well, that’s my quick post. I truly wish you and your families happiness, health, wealth, and much more in 2023! Happy New Year!
