A Storm is Brewing

This is a picture I took from my front door last night. The weather man was warning of hail storms all around us, "golf ball" "hen egg" so many funny ways to describe the size of the frozen ice balls that were assaulting neighboring towns. So, we waited and watched. We got clouds, wind, darker clouds......then finally a nice little shower. Thank goodness no hail. We have lived through many hail storms and all the damage that results. It is not fun. Here is a pic of the hail my friend Lisa got at her house in Midland.




This is one of my latest creations. You know how I'm always soldering charms. Well, I had this idea yesterday about using the alcohol inks on glass and then soldering it. This is what I came up with.....a necklace charm and earrings. I love how they look when the light passes through them. I was excited about the results. I will have to try something like this again but I am out of glass slides. Will need to order some more.



Can you tell I have had bloggers block? I just could not think of anything blog worthy lately. My mind has been clogged lately with work issues and missing my son. So, I just need some good karma to come my way. So, hugs to everyone.....Happy Easter!

so why not write about having your head full and your heart heavy? That will clear the block and help the flow of karma as well... where attention flows, energy goes...so to speak. Gwan grrl! We wanna hear you!

I really, really love the look of those earrings and necklace. Please, show us more when you make them. I'd love to have the talent to do anything like that.

I've missed you. I check your blog every day, and when you don't blog, I worry. LOL Mom's right!See you this week-end. Maybe that will clear the blockage.

Hugs back at you! Those hail stones are huge, no wonder people lose livestock and such. Take care and get unclogged soon.
