But first, special thanks to JP from Tattered Time and her Garden Stake Whimsy Tutorial. I love using a nib pen for drawing on glass!

Here are my pendants before assembling (tonight’s task), and a few of my favorites:
One more nursing weekend to get through, another couple of days of organizing/cleaning/packing CHAOS before we head off to paradise next week. I am so ready for this trip!
