My Favorite Things!

I started this blog as a place to post some of "My Favorite Things" that I make as gifts and to sell.
Times have been tough for everybody recently. The economy has kept a lot of people from being able to some things like eating out or buying new things. A lot of business have cut back on advertising affecting our publishing business drastically. I have been looking for something new to do. I kept hearing follow your passion, do what you love....

Well, I was an art major in high school and part of college. I really did not continue because I didn't know what I would do with an art degree except teach and I really wasn't interested in that. I got an easel, paint, paint brushes and canvas for Christmas and I promised I would start to paint again. I have forgotten many techniques but I started playing around.
I have painted wine glasses for gifts but decided to try and do more with that. I had some ideas on what would make cute designs so I tried them. Here is some of my hand painted glassware: martini, wine & champagne glasses.

I am in the process of making some very unique designs for New Moms, Parrotheads, Memphis Music, the Beach and more. I'll get those finished and on here as soon as I can.
I'm going to try one with the University of Memphis logo too!
These glasses make great gifts for wedding parties and girlfriends too!

I also make soy candles with ribbon and personalized cards that make great wedding favors and other gifts.
