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!

Incredible post. Articles that have significant and savvy remarks are more agreeable, at any rate to me. It’s fascinating to peruse what other individuals thought and how it identifies with them or their customers, as their point of view could help you later on.

Hello friends, I'm a little ashamed to tell such a story. But I would like to share with you a great resource. I've had problems since my sexual organ was too small. I've been worried about this and tried to rectify the situation by means of pumps and tablets. Because of the tablets, which I ordered, I had complications and I was in the hospital for some time after that I gave up trying to increase my penis. But once I found Dr adam herbal cream. My first result was: plus 3 centimeters after 2weeks of usage. If you want to know more details and how you can enlarge your penis bigger, I recommend you to contact Dr adam today, email address or add him on whatsapp line +2348151731392.
