Mothers day

I've really been wanting to post something creative for a few days now, but still haven't had the time to finish my 'Owl and pussycat' painting, and since that is what I have been working on, it's been a little frustrating. But I have been creative - I just didn't realize it! I've been blowing glass in preparation for Mothers day, which is this weekend here in the US.

After the success of the Easter rabbits, I decided to make minature vases with minature glass flowers in, and they have worked rather well! So I thought I'd post a couple pictures here. They only stand around five inches tall (complete with flowers) so I hope they will be popular. Meanwhile my master plan is still to stockpile some work so I might open an Etsy shop, so we'll see!

Also, I have joined 'Creative everyday' which posts monthly themes to inspire creativity (similar to illustration friday) and May's theme is nature. So in a strange way, my little vases can almost count towards that too! Check it out if you are not aware of it yet.


  1. Joanna,
    These are really great. They would make smashing gifts - lovely!

  2. Hi Joanna, just wanted to say hi, and thanks for dropping by today... best, Owen
