Drinking Glass for Birthday Present, May 31, 2014

I wanted to give a gift that I made to my best friend. So, I booked a glass blowing instructor
to help me making drinking glass. I chose dark and light blue together and turned out really nice.

Happy Birthday!!! May your year fills with happiness, laughter and great health.

Sunset crane fan lamp, May 18, 2014

My son is going to mission trip to Alaska this year with his youth team from church. Someone from church gave a very generous anonymous gift and enable him to go this year. It was all paid for.
As our thank you to whomever gave, I made a crane stained glass fan lamp.
I hope they like it. And from the bottom of our hearts, we are so grateful!!

Goddess Bead, May 17, 2014

I've been wanting to make goddess beads for a while but didn't have confidence to do it yet.
Now a year after I started torching, I decided to give it a go and tried it last night.
It was a fun process and learned a lot especially dealing with heat control and shaping the body.
I'm just grateful to be able to achieve this, although I probably won't be making so many of this kind of beads.

First time using my Bobcat torch, May 13, 2014

I used my new GTT Bobcat torch last night after work. What a difference after using HotHead for a year.
The new torch is soooo quiet. I had great time making my first beads with it.

I made 2 ducks and 3 birds.

My Bobcat Torch setup is done for my Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I received a beautiful flowers today. Also, a beautiful card from my boys. Thank you!!

Mother's Day accomplishments:
My Oxygen Concentrator Devilbiss 515ADS came last Thursday. During weekend, we set everything up, fixed the oxygen leak by the hose fitting, even got the hose away from my knees. I'm so glad that after waiting for exactly 2 months, I can now start to torching again soon.
Since Bobcat torch's fire is longer and hotter, I cleared out everything in front of it, just in case.

I also got my second stand for my Empress beading robe, all done and painted. All I have to do is finish it up right on the stand. Such a beautiful stand.
