Things I Like – Stained Glass for Halloween

Happy Halloween!  I keep thinking about these fun stained glass ornaments made by Etsy Artist Alla Sharkova.  I love the unexpected angles and colour combinations.  Perfect for a spooky Halloween!

Stained Glass Window Design – Winter Bubbles

Price: $250

Stained Glass Winter Bubbles Design

Stained Glass Winter Bubbles DesignThis stunning stained glass bubbles design (Jello Bubbles) sold last week and when I took it down from my window, I was so pleased to send it to a new home to be enjoyed, but also felt a little secret sadness because I’ve also really enjoyed it. So I spent 18 hours of my weekend joyfully making a new window, same design, but in new colours. I’m so excited to have this window to display at my craft fairs – maybe someone else will fall in love with it, too.

Stained Glass Business Card Holder Design

Stained Glass Business Card Holder Design

And here is my first business card holder design!   It’s going to be so perfect for displaying my cards with my stained glass collection at Christmas fairs in November.  I’m really pleased with how it turned out, the same cute whimsical feeling that I’m trying to create for my table at the fairs.

Things I Like – Stained Glass Business Card Holders

I’ve decided I probably need a stained glass business card holder of my own.  Not sure where to start, I did a quick search to find some ideas and here are the couple that I like.  I’ll keep you posted what my own business card holder ends up looking like.

Stained Glass Suncatcher of Lake Louise, BC

Price: SOLD

This stained glass custom design is based on a photo taken of Lake Louise,  a beautiful destination in our BC Rocky Mountains (if you’ve never been to stunning mountains, I highly recommend the trip)!

Stained Glass Lake Louise Design

My friends Damara and Goetz requested this window as a gift for their parents in Germany, as a unique way for them to remember their trip to Canada last year. Did you catch that? My creation is going all the way to Germany! Wow!

I had such a fun time designing this window, especially my favourite part, the little red kayak on the lake.  This kayak is created with reflective mirror-like red glass so that it really sparkles in the light.  Thanks, Damara, for specifically asking for the red kayak! It’s the best!
