After 18+ years, my glass and resin business is taking a pause. This is a personal and professional decision. On the professional side, the quality of materials I use to create my work have become difficult to source and much more expensive. On the personal side, my husband and I are excitedly downsizing. I have been spoiled the last 8 years with having my large studio in my home - my new creative space will be smaller but my creative energy continues to grow.

This is where the "pause" comes in. I'm not sure what is next, and I'm okay with that. My only goal right now (besides the 10lbs I have been wanting to lose for the past 10 years) is becoming comfortable with downtime and allowing myself to be creative without a business plan. I want to create for the joy of color and texture and learning. And who knows what will come out on the other side.

I have pulled out of all of my stores, though my ETSY store is still open. I will be doing a promotion of some sort in the next month to sell my remaining inventory - I will let you know when I know.

Thank you for you support, your kindness and friendship - so many of you have been with me from the very beginning when I had no plans of my art becoming a long running successful business. I started working with glass in an effort to soothe a broken heart, you all have made me whole and happy in so many ways. I truly thank you!
