Ahhhh enamels!

I got my Thompson enamels sampler pack and have been playing with enamels all weekend! This stuff is amazing. I love bright bold colors and enamels are just the thing to add that to my beads. Here are a few that I have up on Etsy right now...

Enamels ROCK!!!!!

So this weekend I took a 2-day class at Boca Loca with JC Herrell. There were many "Aha moments" and lots of fun too! I am absolutely amazed that after all these years of doing glass that I never even attempted to use enamels before. The colors are vibrant and bold and right up my alley! Thompson Enamels has a great and affordable set of sample enamels and I highly reccomend giving them a try. With the proper safety precautions, of course. I will be stalking the mail-lady until my enamels arrive. Until then my brain is just stewing with ideas. Peace Out!

Family Fun!

We had a blast last weekend at Conner Prairie. The boys spent lots of time with the animals including 6 day old baby goats(twins). We got to hold chicks that were really warm from the incubator thingie they were kept in.

The boys strummed on a dulcimer and learned all about life in the 1800's.
