I love the Winter Olympics!

I've enjoyed watching the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics this year, Apolo Ohno, Shaun White, Bode Miller, Evan Lysacek, Lindsey Vonn and so many others made this year's Olympics so exciting to watch. I am going to miss watching the Olympics once they're over. What has been your favorite Olympic moment from this year?

In honor of the Olympics, here is a funny video of "Office Chair Skating" by my favorite you tubers, Rhett & Link. Enjoy! :-)

Reversible Glass Tile Pendants

glass tile pendants

Here's a look at some new additions to my Etsy shop. I decided to try out making some glass tile pendants with photos that I've taken of flowers, etc. As you can see, I also made a pendant with one of my watercolors of my Lilly the Ladybug storybook character.

While making these pendants, I thought it would be nice to offer a reversible option to wearing the pendant. On the back of the glass tile & photo, I applied a layer of Apoxie Sculpt with a glittery coat embedded to the surface of Apoxie Sculpt. The glitter is adhered to the Apoxie surface so it won't flake off. However, to be certain, there won't be any loose glitter, I coated the surface with a protective glaze.

So how do you like the idea of a reversible glass tile pendant? And also, do you have a favorite from the pendants pictured?

Last year I did a blog post about when I made my first glass tile pendant from a starter kit. It gives a little bit of an inside look about making the pendants. If you're interested, click here.

Time is valuable

Do you ever find that there is not enough time in the day?

I often wonder where the time goes. One thing that I hope to improve on this year is to work on prioritizing & planning my time more wisely. That has been a challenge for me lately. I'm trying to take some time to think and to listen to what's truely important and to listen to that still, small voice to help guide me. Last year as I was working on this and that my heart longed to be on another path. With perseverance, planning and correct thinking, I hope to forge along on the path I've neglected for too long.

Anyone have a similar experience and/or sentiments?
