Super Size Ornament!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I wanted to show you what I've been up to. My last show was a great success, and I really appreciate everyone who came out to Encinitas. It was a gorgeous day. At the show, a lovely lady asked me if I made my ornaments any bigger. Hmmmm, I thought, I don't but maybe I should. So I went to my favorite stained glass store, Alpine Stained Glass in San Diego, and found out they make beveled glass that's 6x9" So I hurried and bought some. The lilac ornament pictured is what I came up with. It was definitely more difficult to handle, but I love the way it turned out. I'll be bringing this one and more to the Palm Springs Villagefest tomorrow night, and the Carlsbad Street Fair this Sunday, May 2 from 8-5. I'll be near the corner of Grand and Carlsbad Blvd. if you're planning on going. It's been called the biggest show in the country, and it's fun for me because it's in my home town. Come by and say hi to me if you get the chance. Well, back to work!
Take care,

It's Show Time!

Hi There! It's the busy time of year for me, with shows sprouting up with spring. If you're in the San Diego area, I'll be at the Encinitas Street Fair tomorrow, Saturday April 23 from 9-5. It's a beautiful place for a show, and it's really close to the beach. Find me at booth #947 on Coast Hwy near "H" street, in downtown Encinitas, CA.

I'll be bringing more ornaments I've been busy working on, including loads of vintage flowers perfect for mom (Mother's Day is May 9th). Next Sunday May 2nd, I'll be at the Carlsbad Street Faire. Hope you can make one of them! Take care, Martha

My New Best Friend

Hi there, I hope you had a nice Easter weekend. At our church the Jonas Brothers sang much to the delight of my teenage daughter. So, I'd like to introduce you to my new best friend. It is anew iMac, and it is making my life so much easier. I've been a Mac user for about 8 years now, and my old computer was getting bogged down with zillions of images, and all the huge programs I have open all the time, like Photoshop. I'm so thankful to have a new one, with a 27" monitor. It makes my work go so much faster. Also, I've never had a problem with a virus using a Mac. If you've ever thought of making a change from a PC to a MAC, I'd say go for it. What kind of computer do you use?
Don't you love the look of old faded flower paintings? I sure do. So I made a few in honor of Spring. My sister in MN says she's seeing flowers popping out. Being in CA all my life I've never experienced the changing of the seasons, but I hear people describing how exciting it is for Spring to finally arrive. Well, I hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by. If you live in CA, I'll be in Palm Springs tomorrow night for their weekly street fair. Drop by if you can, because they have some amazing handcrafted items, and killer food.
Take care,
