So first I would like to tell you a little about myself.  I am from New England originally... actually a place called Maine.  Yes there are states above Massachusetts!!  Grew up in a small town, and always had a love for building things with my hands.  I was always doing Arts and Crafts, trying to make something out of nothing.  I started working as a slave to a Corporate Enity...and soon realized that I needed a hobby.  I started making Jewelry and was bored with simple stringing in no time. I branched out into Lampwork beads...and then my passion for Fire surfaced!  I then became a pyro!  Took a Silversmithing class... loved it.. but not as much as I loved playing with glass.  Then my husband bought me the mother of all torches... and I started to learn to blow glass... however with getting married, going to school full-time, working full-time, and buying a house (that needs to be remodeled) my glass was put on hold.  ***sniffle***  But then I learned about Slumping and Fusing Glass.. and a whole new world opened up.  I have been selling my pieces at work... people seem to love them.  They will soon be on my website...!!!
