Hi all ;)

Just wanted to stop by to let you all know I am so busy with orders now and I don't have the time to blog.

My son's cardiologist had ordered, for her staff, my stained glass pink rose in a heart plus she purchased some items in my shop. I'm thrilled but my fingers say otherwise lol At least I'm being kept busy. It's just so hard, so fresh, and I miss my son so much but keeping busy helps me throughout the day.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Mine was nice. Our grandson, Johnathan, his mother Michelle and our nephew, Dennis had come up to stay with Mike, Sean and I for 4 days. It was good to have family. We all miss Mikey though. It just wasn't the same but we all did our best to be happy.

Well, I'm going to close for now.
May you all have a great week!

You will go to my site but read and see everything that is on it and you too can set your own site from the left hand or by clicking on the "link" button on top of the site.

Hoping you all have a pleasant weekend. I am expecting my grandson and nephew over for Thanksgiving and need to shop. It will be nice to have some company over during this time. Have a good one!

The following is a Holiday Group I had made. These pieces can be purchased separately. If your interested, go to my shop at to see the list of beautiful, keepsake ornaments that will last for generations!




Heres another beauty! This would make a great heirloom piece that would last for generations to come ;)


This suncatcher came out more beautiful and elegant than I expected. I think it was the different white glass I used.



Hi Everyone,

Well, I sure its no surprise to say this has been a very hard year for me. Losing a job is one thing but to lose a son is another. A person can only hold together so much. I've been taking each day as it comes - Hmm- lets say, each "moment" as it comes and its hard. Folks say to me it gets better, I'd like to know when. They forget that my son would have graduated College this Dec. and the holidays are approaching...

Just please patient with me as I go through this difficult time in my life. I know I should be posting for my company's sake but this is really on the bottom of my list for now. I'm just glad I have those of you to read and understand what its like to lose someone you loved very much and was so proud of and grateful you had them for the time you have. My sincere Thanks

I've been passing the time making some Stained Glass ornaments that I would love to share with you. GIFT TAG ANGELS -Can be hung on a small tree afterwards
