I have been away from this site for so long, I really didn't know if I wanted to start it up again. Hmmm,,, the word "lazy" comes to mind!!! But I find myself coming back to my page and reading what everyone has been doing. I still visit my favorites, not every day, but often. So I decided I would start being more loyal to this, give it a go one more time. I decided not to post everyday (I think that is where my burnout came from). But I will try to keep in touch more often.....
So what is new in Altered Glass land.... well, I am still doing glass maybe in a more different way. I have been doing pictures; glass on glass method. A few stepping stones here and there. My big project was this past Spring when I did 18 stepping stones for a fund raiser for the youth group of our church. They raised ALOT of money which helped sponser a few kids to go to Costa Rica.

I also did a stone for a grandma that lost her 7 yr. old granddaughter to brain cancer.... so sad...

We got the kids house finished and they moved in end of October. That house was a wonderful labor of love... new life was breathed into my husbands' parents home. This house was actually built 2 years before his father was born. Dad (in-law) was actually "born in this house" literally! He would have been 93 in November.
Kids these days want everything done all at once as opposed to how we did our house, one room at a time. So they took out a HUGE loan and turned this little ole' farmhouse into the house of their dreams. IT IS GORGEOUS WITH ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES! I will have to post before and after pics someday.

We also had major work done to our kitchen. We ended up completely gutting it after a leak was discovered. I used the same designer and contractor as my kids did and now I have a GORGEOUS KITCHEN TOO!... oh my, so many unexpected changes....
Well, I will start posting pictures and I will kick my butt in gear and start devoting a little time to this site. I miss so many of you and before we are gone for 4-6 weeks in January, I have so much catching up to do.... so see you soon!!!!!
