Work in Progress Tuesday


This past weekend, hubby and I found ourselves in Corning. He came home Thursday telling me I have to pack Friday because we are leaving early Saturday morning. He surprised me with a trip to the Corning Museum of Glass. He signed us up for a weekend beginner glass blowing class. A dream come true for me because I love glass and have always wanted to learn how to glass blow.

It was such an awesome weekend! 12 hours over 2 days of working with hot glass and using it to create something to be proud of. It gives you a new appreciation to how something is created.

Over the 2 days, we created a paperweight, blown glass ornament, glass flowers and the ultimate..taking everything we learned and creating a tumbler. I can’t say it enough..it was a ton of fun! I was able to get a group shot of everything that we made, except my husband’s paperweight and tumbler. They made their way to work and are probably on his desk right now.


For Work in Progress Tuesday, I am hard at work getting my creative space cleaned out and organized a bit. Of course my cats aren’t making it any easier, but then again they never do. I’ll be posting pictures of that at a later date.

Hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a good week!!


  1. I've always loved watching the glass blowing process. Very pretty stuff!

  2. Thanks! I too love the process. I was mesmerized the whole time we watched our instructor show us the process. It was awesome!
