A Big Thanks to Swirly Arts!

A big thanks to Lynsey from SwirlyArts who sent me this fab Chicken doorstop! Lynsey came to one of my glass fusing classes and noticed I had a need for the door stop so...taadaa!
I love it. Lynsey is a recycling fanatic! I found this out when she could resist using every single scrap of glass. Nothing went to waste!

SwirlyArts was fabric specialist and sells lots of eco-friendly goodies so check them out. Check out Lynsey's blog here too!

Glass Kanvas goes green!

So, I've decided I'm way too wasteful with the packaging I send out. People don't really need boxes and boxes and boxes. My home is full to the brim of boxes of boxes and boxes of envelopes for the boxes, it's ridiculous!

From now though, all my dichroic glass pieces are going to be sent out in recycled packing, using recycled paper or if possible reusing envelopes! I'm sending out everything in bags that can be easily reused and recycled and i'm making my own protective packing for the pieces!
Every little helps!

Glass Fusing Classes

I've had a hectic weekend hence a lack of new posts for a while. I've been busy making alterations to the new glass fusing and lampworking forum , plus I had one of my glass fusing classes on Sunday.

I'm really pleased with the work people turned out. Really impressive for new fusers!

The people who came were great and really enthusiastic. I purposely keep the classes small because I have tendancy to baffle people initially. Keeping the numbers small means I can respond to confused faces quickly!
I think this will be my last class for a while. I'm just so busy, but I'll put the details up here again once I restart.



I've started the first of 's monthly competitions. These competitions are open to anyone on the forum and to enter you only need to post a comment on it. To enter have a look at the Competition Post . Good Luck!
