‘Date Night’ Report …

Date night was a success … But more importantly, the kids made it home safe and sound.  They had a great, albeit cold and wet time at Cedar Point.

I hung out in the studio most of the day, with DH popping up from his man-cave from time to time.  He’s taken to calling the barn our ‘cabin’ … OK honey, whatever … I had both kilns running, so the ‘cabin’ was warm and toasty, while Michigan continues with this strange weather …

Peacock-Platter-stage-86I put together some jewelry from my pendant pieces (you can see them on the gallery page); got a few new pendant molds filled; scrubbed at my (FINALLY) dry Peacock Platter project … it’s just about ready for fusing, then slumping.

DH did a little foil wrapping/stained glass … that’s my fused mosaic rose he ‘bordered’.  I think it’ll look great as a sun-catcher.  AND … I talked him into agreeing to build a version of this for the studio cabin.  [A sofa table from repurposed pallet with stained glass insert – discovered on Pinterest.]  Yep, date night was a success! Winking smile

And here’s one of my ‘square bowls’ (1 of 3) – it came out of the kiln this morning:


So now, it must be time to switch gears and be ‘nurse-y’.  Stay safe all!

Artisan of beautiful and functional art, handmade in our glass studio. All items one of a kind due to the nature of our medium. A little about me: As the mother of four children, multiple four-legged 'children', wife and an ER nurse ... I've always found pleasure in pursuing creative outlets. My current 'hobby' is kiln-formed glass. As I never do anything 'half-way' ... my husband and I are really enjoying this medium. Other hobbies have included/include stained glass, quilting, knitting, wine making, candles - oh, and a brief trial of the ancient Ukranian art of etching designs on blown eggs ... don't ask. :) You can view my on-line glass store at www.chneos.etsy.com
