Well an exciting week all in all with lots of sales in the shop........a huge thank you to everyone who has bought from me recently x
Now I don't usually blog twice a week but I had the offer of a carpet ride!! After reading the article on women of glass in Flow magazine I started to browse blogs and discovered Lisa Aitchison, http://touchofglassdesigns.blogspot.com/ her work is inspirational and that is were I found out about the Carpet Ride created by Artist Lisa Swifka. Some of you may have noticed the mysterious logo in the top right side of the page...... Well this is what it is all about : Lisa created this event in 2007 and it is about linking together like minded people. Each of the artists on the carpet is giving away a prize and to enter all you have to do is leave a comment on their blog. You will find a list of them if you click on the logo. You too can come and join us and help unite bloggers from around the world. This is an international event and a great way to meet new friends and connect with fellow artist. Oh and of course win lots of scrumptious prizes!!
1. You must preferably have an active blog, or be following me. If you are not you can leave your email if you wish but why not use this nudge to start blogging and follow me too!!!!!!
2. You must leave a comment to be eligible for the give away. Be sure to leave contact info, in case you are the winner!!
3. The winner will be drawn at random on Feb 15.
I thought long and hard about the prize and as I am only a year (just!) into my glass adventure I was conscious of the staggeringly awesome standard of most of the other glass artists on the carpet! So here we go.......................
The inspiration for this little baby was the sea, the sand and the wind. I and Milly, my Lakie terrier, spend a huge amount of time on the same beach, Westward Ho! It is a huge sand beach with huge tidal change and I am constantly amazed by how everything shifts with each tide and I had that in the forefront of my mind whilst creating this bead. It has been formed free hand as I wanted to keep that organic feeling to the shape as well as the content. I hope it reflects that movement and you like it!!
So there it is!! Since I am still awaiting the arrival of my 'Cricket' and am still with my trusty hothead and bulk fuel I am dead chuffed with the encasing but it does take hours..yawn.....xx
Well all that is left is to say good luck, enjoy the ride and will blog again on the weekend - Jennie xxx
