A christmas Gift


Well every year at Christmas I make something for my sister and my sister in law. Always a handmade project. One year it was a emory quilt last year it was a geneology scrapbook and this year i thought i would use my magnolia Stamps and make a decoration.  This one is for me but i bought more glass blocks so i could make some more and give them as gifts.  So this is the first one which i will keep as it is pink!!!!! I put some lights in the block so it could light up at night.  I used lots of bling ribbons, pearls and other christmas items from my stash and of course my Magnolia stamps. I am waiting for my new order of magnolia stamps so I can make these all a little different!!!! I hope they will like this!!!!!

What;s Christmas without a snowman!!!!

Well I started to ceramic years ago. Up to last year I had my own kiln but ceramic stores started to close down and the price of electricity shot up so I sold it. I still have a dozen pieces that i had cooked but not painted. So this weekend I decided to paint a piece. I miss doing ceramics. So here is my finished piece. It is sitting next to my fireplace and of course it had to be pink!!!!!!
