New beginnings.....

OMG!  I am so excited to start this business with you in mind.  I started out just like you.  Attended a 2 hour session in a friend's garage.  That's all it took!  I was hooked!  I had done lots of stained glass over 20 years ago and then life happened.  My tools were all put into storage boxes and they followed me through life.  Now with two wonderful boys now grown, and two step sons and grandson's later, this is all happening through the love and support of my wonderful husband.  

My love of glass has always been there.  It just hasn't been able to resurface until now that I feel most settled in my life.  I'm now 52 and lovin' the life I've created with my husband John.  I work a full time job from home - from our 20 acres in the Washougal River Gorge.  We moved out here 4 years ago and love the seclusion and beauty of nature that surrounds us.

We built a huge shop when we moved out here and without any questions asked, he built this beautiful studio for me.  I can't help but want to share it with you.  

Looking forward to sharing my love of glass with you and allowing you to express your artistic element!

Do you serve coffee or tea ? Do you have polka dot glass ? Do you have Kermit green or Miss Piggy Pink ? Inquiring minds want to know. We are proud to say we know you... keep up the inspiring work Shirls. Doug wants to make a sconce for each side of our bed with the triumph logo :) Love to you, j and d

I'm very happy to hear about your art glass studio. I've wanted to work with glass for many years, but didn't have the means. Your right, life does happen! Funny thing, I've had an incredible need to craft and be creative lately. Maybe it comes down to me time.. but I look forward to trying your craft class. Thank you!
