Playing With Fire
October 08, 2018
in 50 to 50
To start, no one got hurt in the making of this week’s adventures. I did not spend three hours on my knees with a flint. The fire was roaring, the stage was set, and I still blew it.
Because we went glass blowing. (Bwahaha. I still have it folks even at this ripe old age.)
Mister and I went on a date at Playing With Fire in Toronto. They hold glass workshops and we chose to make a paperweight each and a glass. As noobs, we were not able to actually do the work in the fire (maybe she just saw some of my videos and took that off the table), but we got to wear the welding glasses and that was the fun part anyway.
My projects are the ones on the left and I am totally in love with them. I use the glass to hold reading glasses. It makes me laugh at the irony even when I cry at my failing eyes.
The paperweight is, weight for it… weighing down papers. I know. No irony there but a little play on words to make it fun. I will say my weight is doing a damn fine job. Bring on a gust of wind and I think we’ll see the magic happen.
