I have not accomplished much in a month and I am trying to get out of this funk. My creative juices were just dried up, nothing, nada.... So I needed to just push through it!
I had a few orders for stones from my greenhouse friends and thought now that it has been
2 1/2 months since I was done with work, better get going.

One was this marker for a furry family member.

I do love how it turned out. I am getting better about cutting numbers and letters.

It did take some time to figure out how much pressure I can put on glass
before it SNAPS!!!
Oh... I have had my share of that..... It usually doesn't break until I am just
a-l-m-o-s-t done, and about my last turn of a letter or number....


I have learned to have more than one copy of my design, so I can start over again quickly. Otherwise, it is back upstairs to the computer, find the pattern, make a copy....
to me that is such a waste of time....

So here are some pics of some letters in stones I have done.....

If anyone is interested in a design,,,, you can email me.... or leave a comment and I can contact you.
I have sent stones all over with excellent success. Start to finish is a month. That allows time for it to cure and get sealed.

I am by no means a professional at this. Imperfections are guaranteed. But I will not send out something that I am not pleased with and I have been known to make two stones because I was not pleased with the end results.

I don't know why I like doing this stuff so much.... I JUST DO!!!!


  1. The stones look wonderful. I know it takes such patience and skill to cut the glass! Me? I'll stick with whacking tile with a hammer for now!

  2. Oh I love the look of these did great. I can just imagine how difficult the numbers & letters are!

  3. i love those stones. i would like one just like tuckers when i die. maybe even in the shape of a bone cause i do looooove canines. you do a wonderful job!

  4. I am glad you are working on them, it's good for you. I know how much you love doing them. They look awesome.

  5. Scratchy loves her ownership plaque which sets out in front of HER house...don't mess with Scratchy the Bad...AND your work looks awesome in the new Candle Shed shop...

  6. Hi Lori, your stones are so pretty. Especially the FAITH one. And I love how the wreath turned out for you MIL's grave. What a great idea. Best wishes to you and yours, Tammy
