Paying It Forward







This is Charmaine ~ High Desert Diva. She's an amazing designer, writer, photographer, seller of divine antiquities, friend. Last week she was the recipient of a Pay It Forward from Chelsea ~ Eighty Eight Words. Please read about it here. Chelsea recently found out she was going to be the lucky recipient of a brand-spankin'-new MacBook (gratis).
So - Chelsea, as her Pay It Forward, created a beautiful new blog header for Charmaine. Chelsey has an etsy shop with cool cool jewelry, I admiringly envy her talent....anyway,
Charmaine, being an extremely generous person, chose me {heart skips a beat} as the recipient of her Pay It Forward. She sent me a beautifully decorated box filled with the coolest little slumped glass tiles. She might as well have sent me a box of magical wishes - I am so excited! Seriously~I can't sleep because they are in my studio calling for me to come and create things with them. It was such a thoughtful thing to do - so perfect.
Thank you Charmaine. I love them. In fact - I love them so much I think they love me back.
I, too, will Pay It Forward....

You're very welcome!

Love the photo. They look like bars of gold....or gold wrapped chocolates!

That would be the effect you get when you accidently leave your camera on 'sunset mode'. I like it. I've started playing with the glass - I have some frit coming and am going to do some fusing too. Thank you again.

I bought mine from my old art professor for $50.00 - it's small, rusty, and old - but I have a lot of fun with it.

I can't wait to see what you do with them! Am I understanding you need a kiln? My dad (in Oregon) may have one in the garage. If it's there (under the dust and years of "stuff") would you be interested in it? He used to make jewelry when i was little... probably why your stuff is so sentimentally (word?) wonderful to me. I spent hours upon hours in the basement as a kid watching my daddy make jewelry.
