One of the things I find the hardest about craft fairs is how many great ideas I get in the final moments leading up to the show. I never have enough time to execute them all and quite often, I get behind on the things I must do because I’m wasting time daydreaming about the things I’d “love” to do.
So now I’m a little bit behind in making picture frames (I might have to fire one on saturday night for sunday) and I still haven’t finished slumping those bowls I made, but I am glad that one of my little detours turned out well:
I decided to put my new glass painting skills to work (thanks, Joseph!) and make some colorful little pieces with random designs on them. Midway through the process, I decided that they would be great with tiny pinbacks on them (they are less than an inch square) which would allow anyone to enjoy them, and not just women (the usual purchasers of my glass pendants). I am incredibly happy with this batch of badges, and do intend to do a line of pendants in a similar manner in the future, but for now, these will do nicely ;o)
I have some other stained glass works coming together that I will perhaps preview tomorrow, and the fancy LED light innards for the light boxes (!) I’ve been making… so keep checking back!
