While working away...

Today I was going through some old files at work when I came across this piece I did for a giveaway at a Breast cancer Awareness retreat a few years ago. I have always been willing to donate my glass to worthy causes and I hope everyone who reads this finds a way to give something to the community around them. I was only just beginning to do stained glass when I was asked by a local painter if I would like to do something for a prize and I would be paid for it. I didn't like the idea of being paid for it so I donated it and it was a sucess. As I was a newbie at the time it is a little rough but it was for a good cause.

Back to Glass

Hey there! I have been neglecting the purpose of this blog, drifting as it were. I found this picture today as I was cleaning up some files. This is a picture of a piece I did for a silent auction. We were raising money for a good cause and I wanted to do something a little personal for the auction. I didn't have a whole lot of time but I was inspired for this one by my love of bright colours and a little tex-mex feeling as I was excited about going to Mexico on a mini vacation. I hope you like it.

Inuksuk on the beach!

The word inuksuk means "something which acts for or performs the function of a person."

So I went to Bell Island with my Dad and I really like the views from the beach and I love beach rocks. Whenever I go there I make an inuksuk and leave it on the beach. I leave it as a way of staying on the beach. I have been doing this for the past 6 or 7 years. I have recently began taking pictures of the ones I leave behind. Hope you enjoy!
