Visits and Bookmarks

This weekend my mother flew in from Ottawa to visit us for three days, and we had a great time. We went to a slam poetry and folk-blues performance, a backyard bonfire party, an shamanic-themed Inuit art exhibit, antique shops,a pedicure salon, restaurants, and the local casino (where we all won $10-20 each). We also had some great games of Ticket to Ride at home, with Andrea's fabulous margaritas! It was *so* fun. I miss her already.

We did get to spend a bit of time on the torch, too, and I finally convinced Mom to try her hand at melting glass. She did great! I only got a bad photo of that, unfortunately, but it was a very cute lapis-fritted periwinkle barrel. Go Mom!

Now to leave you with some better-photographed eyecandy, here are some of our recent bookmarks made of hammered copper and lampwork:
