Enough

The online shop seemed like a great idea – took thousands of hours to design – only to find out that I’d be spending most of my time fighting off hackers and thieves … enough is enough … hard pass … life doesn’t have to feel this icky … you can find the shop on Etsy. 

Mean people suck.

Speaking of liars, hackers and thieves … okay, I won’t.

Wishing you all a healthy, joyous and prosperous New Year!

Glass Class

Months later … okay almost a year … along with my biggest fan and brain-trust Rober’  we finally finished my “Glass on Glass” instructional video class.

Creating an instructional video was much easier than writing a book.  What book you ask? …  once upon a time, a publisher contacted me to write a book about my found object/pique assiette mosaic tile artwork.  The book took almost a year to write and photograph, was a great experience and a ton of work. The next time I write a book, I’m going to make darn sure that I get to name it and choose the cover image … mostly over it … not really.

The book is forever in the Library of Congress and is sold on Goodreads and Barnes & Noble, to name a few.  It’s been reviewed by some happy people, who encouraged me to keep gluing, while others posted some really mean reviews that at first made me very sad, then mad and then finally really bad for the people who wrote them. People need to be nicer and smile more.

Overall, I give the book a B+ … which was always acceptable in my world, especially in math.  The book is good, not great but I finished it and survived everything that came along with it like the realization that I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and gosh darn it a few people loved it.

Giving my DIY Glass on Glass video an A+ out of celebration that I knocked the class out – unscripted – in 3 takes, didn’t cut myself once and Rob was not harmed when he pushed the publish button.

Hope you’ll check it out.
