The Contest Winners rejoice!

Finally! At lunch today I am going to try to send these prizes from the contest out again. The last time I had problems with shipping to South Africa, then the second time they would not send to Canada because they could not confirm the address. The silly part of that is I have sent Jewels stuff before and I know they did not give me any beef about this. The real reason they have not gone out is I have been very busy, out of town, preparing to go out of town, or just did not have what it took to walk my lazy ass down to the post office and try again.

Fear not winners, you are at the #1. spot of my todo list...ok #2 this post was number one...Ok I lied Starbucks was #1...nevermind your on the list!

Either way, if I have trouble today, I will just send what I can and work on the offending package.

On the shop front I am a bit nervous. My furnace supplier is not taking calls right now and the voice mail is full to the brim and I can't leave a message. My furnace is not here and it is making me crazy. Mostly because I have already paid for it and even more important I am running out of time for the shop. I hope they spring back to life today and answer the phone so I can get the tracking number. If that happens I can peel off a little bit of the stress that has started build up on me the last couple of days.

I got a bunch of people telling me they really liked the New York posts because it was out of my normal writing style. To be honest it was easy to write those while in NYC because I had something to write about. I got to tell a story and I really enjoy doing that. When I talk about glass and the shop I feel like I am just reporting facts. Which is not that bad it just does not really give me a creative way to have fun with my posts. I will try to sprinkle in a couple of the story posts now and then if you guys can handle some "not about glass" stuff.

I just enjoy hearing from you, whether you're spinning a yarn or blowing glass.

I'm with phosgene on this one. I enjoy reading about whatever you write. You have such an interesting life. You have a unique and amazing talent, you get to share it with lots of people, and you get to travel. NYC looks pretty good after an evening of stinky diapers, Spongebob, and breaking up fights amongst the kids.

You could always write about your new bangs. ;)

Thanks. You know I just type what ever rolls out of my head most of the time.


I think your daughter has a crush on the doctor.


I am never going to live that post down am I?

Any word on your furnace??

It was hot enough today I think you could blow glass without the furnace. Come on over!!
