When you can live forever, what do you live for?

Twilight the movie, based on the novel by Stephanie Meyers, is a romance about a vampire, Edward Cullen, who falls in love with a human girl, Bella Swan. Edward overcomes his primal desire for her blood, and chooses her heart instead. Of course, that's not all, no, there are evil vampires who only want her blood. So in Edward's desire to love Bella, he also puts her life in extreme danger. "And so the lion falls in love with the lamb".

I absolutely loved the book, and the movie was great, too! Action, adventure and romance. Just amazing that Edward Cullen is the most romantic dead person ever.

I highly recommend this book. Edward may be dead, but romance is still alive! "Stupid masochistic lion..."

And in the spirit of a true Twilight fan, I have fashioned pendants and ornaments in stained glass. I have purchased graphics which I use to design my original graphics. I print and hand cut each picture. And using the copper foil stained glass technique, I have created some truly unique items. Treasured keepsakes for all Twilight fans.

More to come! So stay tuned....

Wow, it's that time of year again. For those of you brave enough to battle the crowds, I wish you luck!!

For those of you staying in, I wish you would stop in my shops and check out the deals! lol I had to be cheeky, didn't I?

I have two online shops that are having Black Friday sales starting November 28th through November 30th. You will notice that each shop offers a different discount. I decided to mix it up a little bit.

I'm offering a greater discount on my Handmade Fuzion site because it's my new venue and I really love it. So check it out.

My Etsy shop still has great offers, including a great deal on shipping! Check that out too!

I love to create exactly what someone is looking for. I found a really cool sheet of Holiday graphics, and thought, "Wow, there are so many choices. Which ones should I start with? Which ones will everyone like?"

We all know everyone has different tastes. And I really do enjoy creating exactly what everyone likes. So I listed my Holiday Stained Glass Pendants as a "Customizable" item in my Etsy Shop.

Check out those Peppermint tights! Are those cute, or what? What kind of image would you like on the back of that? You'd think it would be kinda hard to imagine anything going with those sassy stockings. But I have two choices that are my favorites. And an additional choice that just seems perfect!

My favorite is the black "Santa, I was naughty", with the "Naughty or Nice" a close second. But wouldn't the other side of the pendant look great with the candy canes? Click on the picture at the right to see all the choices you have.

Want another choice? I know, I know, now I'm going overboard! lol But, what if you see something perfect for someone you know, but they don't wear necklaces? Well, not a problem. I'll replace the chain with a little ribbon, and now you have a one-of-a-kind ornament! Hang it on the tree, or anywhere you'd like. The perfect give for someone you love, or maybe for yourself!

Have a happy and safe holiday season!

What's so great about Handmade Fuzion?

Well, first and foremost, Handmade Fuzion (HF) is all about handmade only items. It's a great website to buy and sell only handmade items.

But what makes it so good? Oh, I'm so glad you asked.....
  • For me, the most important tool they offer sellers is the ability to use html codes to track stats. With stats we're able to see what part of the country (even where in the world) our views are coming from. We can also track what time of day we are getting our views, and what the viewers are looking at, all depending on the analytic account we have. HF also supplies us with a view counter for our main shop page, as well as item view counts.
  • Next is the ability to customize the look of our shop. We have been supplied with some pretty cool templates to create an individualized shop appearance to compliment our items. Again, we have html availability so we can add codes or whatever we are able with our knowledge of html. I, for one, am not very html savvy.
  • Cool fonts, font color choices, and other little editorial gadgets to use at our whim. And don't let me forget the ability to create prefilled fields which help make listing quick and painless.
  • Wildwood (a HF seller) describes the ease of listing as "smoo-hooth:)".
  • Need more options then Paypal and check/money orders? Well, with HF we have it. Just name it, they've supplied it: Revolution money, direct credit card payments, offline payments (Western Union, etc) and more!
  • Shipping options galore! Choose the shipping fees per state, country, etc. Have an item that can only be shipped priority? No problem, it's an option.
  • There is also a fees calculator so we can calculate how much your listing will cost.
  • Oh, and tired of never seeing your item on the front page? Me too. HF charges a minimal fee and your item will cycle throughout the daily page loads and show up on the front page!! How exciting to see your item showcased on the front page. Especially when you know you deserve it.
  • Hey, want to offer a sale or special? What an awesome feature that HF has given us....the ability to put some or all our items on sale. Immediate mark-downs for our customers, making their purchase easy and painless. No waiting for an adjusted invoice for them. And for paying fees on a dollar amount that really wasn't sold. Oh, and if we are in need of sending an adjusted invoice for any reason, we have the option to do that right through the HF site!
  • Have a pesky customer you don't ever want to have to deal with again? There's a cool function to block them. You'll never have to be harassed again.
  • Wonder what your hard earned fees are being used for? Well, on HF, they let us know when and where they are advertising. Check out the completely handmade and totally original commercial below!
  • Best reason ever to join HF? They started contests to win cash and prizes. Sign up, buy, list, sell and earn points to win cash for Christmas.
Have you had enough yet? There are so many great features from handmade Fuzion, that I can't possibly list them all. But I would like to conclude that the Admin there are the absolute best. And I'm not just saying that. They have worked very closely with us from the onset of opening day, to make this site exactly what we want and need. They are always there, always listening, and always helpful! Click here to learn more about the creators of HF.

Goddess of Flora Bead

I'm so incredibly proud of this bead. It's my very first goddess bead. I think it turned out exceptionally well. It's available online at Glasstastic Treasures on Etsy.

I love the texture, the curves. This is one sexy bead.

On this goddess I was ready to go the next step and add a head and hair. Of course, I was disrupted and had to put the bead in the kiln unfinished. Yes, I kept it, after all that time, I didn't want to waste anything! This goddess is for sale inn my Handmade Fuzion shop. See for yourself how amazing it is. It totally reminds me of a worn or half finished sculpture. Something you may find in a museum.

I'd love to hear your comments.
