Creativity flows when the sun shines!

I have felt over the past few weeks that all the rainy weather was really begin to affect my creativity.  It is difficult at times to constantly see gray skies around us and not be impacted in our moods.

Now that the sun is finally making an appearance every few days, it seems to be brightening the world around us and turning on the creativity feelings again.

I have been trying out some new ideas in glass, so I welcome your comments on this week's offerings..
All sets within this blog post have been sold.
