Mary,sorry for the length of time to accept your request!!! I am a bit lax in getting into my account. I have great intent though. Maybe this should be my New Year's resolution!!! IT would certainly be a good one for me!
Oh and I like your sentiment about being a proud crafter. I do a lot of craft shows, and I sometimes get the feeling craftspeople don't get the respect they deserve. But at the same time it creates this kinship between crafters, like we are all in on a little secret that people outside the sphere can only gaze at lovingly. :)
Thanks for the friending! Your work is soulful. Your touch with glass creates a moment caught in time, but the object looks like it's forever changing. Really nice way of setting glass too! Charmed. :)
