After nearly going blind working on this thing all winter, I have finally finished the doily! I love the way it turned out, it is just so pretty and old-fashioned...Actually maybe it is not so old-fashioned. Doily patterns seem to be popping up everywhere for me lately. I just may have spotted a new mini-trend on Etsy. Check out these cool doily inspired pieces.

Almost a month since my last post! I am so ashamed. Ah, well, I'm back, with renewed intention.

As I was cleaning up my studio last month, I found these pieces of glass that I had cut for a star lantern. Pieces I had cut like, five, six years ago. I couldn't just give up on the project, but I had a really hard time re-starting. I had to trust my past self to have cut every triangle just as precisely as I would today. It did work out really well. Now I'm debating if I should list if for sale in my Etsy, or put it in a local gallery. Shipping might be prohibitive, but I would love to list something so different from my other work. Either way, I love these lights. I love stars!

And some awesome Etsy items to keep my little star company:

So I wasn't accepted to the Bust Spring Craftacular. I am so bummed out. It looked like it was going to be the coolest show, with open bar, a DJ, and all sorts of other fun stuff. But I guess I'm just not cool enough. Oh well, there is an upside...I was so sure that I would be doing this show, that I've been busily working on new pieces for it. Now I have a ton of new ideas swirling, and a lot of new work to list in my Etsy shop. I spent the whole day yesterday photographing and photoshopping the new work, and will be listing them throughout the coming days. You can get a sneak peak here! Leave a comment if you would like something reserved before it goes up for sale.
