My Creative Space

Here is the place where I go to create. It is a little room in my basement that I made into my studio!

I just love the feel of the room with the light green walls (my favorite color)! I especially love my 50's retro desk, file cabinet, and tables...I got all four pieces for $1 each!

When I am in my studio creating I like to listen to Sirus Radio Top 40 hits, Sirus the Pulse, or just watch a favorite TV show!

Here is where I solder my charms~

My German glass glitters...stored in a old spice rack~

I'm off now to create more goodies! :)

Love Night Light *New Design*

Here is my latest soldered night is a new design!

Everyone needs a night light. So don’t get just any old light, get a light that will not only do the job it will also look good while doing it! This little light that I made would be charming in any room!

I printed this image on my HP printer. The image is encased between two pieces of glass (3" X 2.5") and then soldered (with a lead free solder). This sweet light looks really cute when lit up (the picture does not do it justice). This little night light will come in a clear gift box like the one shown in the photo below, it is ready to give as a gift!

I also have more designs for night lights, if you would like to see any of the others just let me know and I can make another one for you! I will be adding more designs soon! Thanks for looking! ;)
