Crochet Silver Wire in Glass Paperweight

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

Dean and I experimented with some of my silver wire crochet in a glass paperweight last night during our glass-blowing session. Pretty interesting stuff, we will definitely work on this some more to see how we can cross-pollinate our crafts.

Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize!

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

What a strange reaction to our President receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. Everywhere on the media I watch and read about how surprised and confused everyone is about why this has happened because of the perceived lack of concrete actions taken by the president.

What people of this opinion are not aware of is the power of the ideas that Obama has been socializing since he started campaigning for Pres. He has been planting seeds of change. Did we as a public believe that the minute he was elected that everything would change instantly? Are we that foolish? We need to be acutely aware of the effect his words and ideas will SLOWLY have on the American public and other nations. Words and ideas of openness, exchange of ideals, understanding and awareness. This message that is being conveyed in and of it self, is a form of action. This is the seed. Concrete results will slowly occur if we as a nation support these ideas and messages in our actions and support elected officials that assist with moving these ideas into further actionable outcomes.

Be patient people, more is happening that we all even realize.
