Did anyone else notice the lack of nostalgic “let’s look at the year in review” stories for 2020? Yeah, me too. So much was different this year. So many losses, big and small. It is finally time to look forward. But first, I have a few quick updates to finish out 2020.
Over the years, I have grown lots of flowers and a few random tomato plants, but this year I decided to go for it and plant a “real” garden. A garden that was edible. Here is the story in a few words and lots of photos.
I have paper tabs on my little starts to remember what they are and when I planted them. That won’t work outside, and since I am a very novice gardener, I do know what these veggies look like as they grow. So I made some glass stakes for easy identification in the garden.
New fused glass project as we are all holed up, doing FaceTime and Zoom, and longingly looking at photos of those times we could hang out and hug our loved ones.
I hope you and your loved ones are hunkered down and safe. I have been getting everyone settled and managing the expected hiccups. It is hard worrying about the younger generation and the elders at the same time, isn’t it?
I just read this article today and wanted to share it. It is from the Audubon Society and worth a read! It features the 2019 bird photography winners and a short description of ‘what’s going on’ with the birds in the photos.
It has been quiet here on the blog, but I have been busy behind the scenes. Here is a quick roundup of what I have been up to over the last few weeks.
Hiking in the forest is my cure to de-stress. The trees and birds top my list of reasons why I find nature so restorative. I am deeply inspired by nature, and my glass and watercolor art reflect that inspiration. For 2020, I am spotlighting trees and birds and finding ways to give back.
Glass won’t fade or go stale, but still… let’s have a sale! All remaining glass ornaments in my shop are 20% off. Quantities are limited, and what’s in stock is what is available at this time.
This year, for the rest of December, I am sending out a mini glass heart magnet with each order. No minimum purchase, no special code. It’s my way of saying thank you for your interest in my work, sharing the word, and purchasing my art. ❤️
