Favorite Tool - Borosilicate Glass

My current favorite tool is more of a supply, it's boro glass *swoon*sigh*. I've been playing with it a lot this month and have fallen in love. It's got such etherial colors and something about it has just drawn me in. I stole the above photo from the Glass Alchemy website. I've been using their colors more than others, I like the consistency and I also like that's it's North American made. Plus the owners are just plain wonderful people!

How can you not love this glass? I adore the beads I'm getting with this glass. It reminds me of Double Helix but something bit different, I can't quite put my finger on it yet.

Often this time of year things get so busy we forget about the things we already have to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for my friends and family, ever supportive and always caring.

I'm thankful for my studio, medium and craft. I don't know what I'd do if I had to go back to a "real" job.

I'm thankful for my health, I think at 42 I'm the fittest I've ever been!

I'm thankful for this season, as much as I often whine about the gray cold days I love snow! Winter is here and hopefully snow will be here soon.

What are you thankful for?
