Glass Project Table [Project 8]

This gallery contains 15 photos.

My inspiration from Pottery Barn. After a lot of humming & hawing about my desk area & what kind of units I need built, I found my inspiration at Pottery Barn in the Bedford Project Table Set.  Hey, it’s even … Continue reading

I’m Working On It

This gallery contains 6 photos.

from I’m Working On It I’ve been searching home stores, magazines, internet design sites — wracking my brain for some idea to cheaply cover the ugly carpets in this rental. Key words:  cheap and  rental — it has to be … Continue reading

Headboard Glass Panel Pattern [Project 7]

😀  Ah, finally — I finished the pattern for my bed panels.  I call it Red Sun at Night.

This Photoshop [Ps] rendering does not do justice to the colours & flow of the stained glass.  Continue reading

Personal Design in Accessories

With the walls painted [except the bathroom & that section behind the wood stove awaiting a colour decision], some furniture built, & the kitchen cabinets almost finished, I’ve been unpacking more ‘stuff’.

Surrounded by translucent yellow glass, a red-centred 4-petal flower, in an opalescent orange & white glass, is then bordered by a textured, goldish-orange glass with square red corners in the same glass as the flower centre.

Furniture Design [Project 7]

Creative Act XXII — Interior Design

With the summer & puppy job over, I found a wonderful rental in Sooke [about 45 km west of Victoria] — a mobile home on 1/2 acre on the ocean.  What’s really great is the landlord is fine with me painting & ‘improving’ the place — any future plans they have for the property means razing this place & building a new home.

Since getting the keys the last week of Sept., Continue reading

Creative Act XXI – Website Design

Awfully busy with eight, now 5-wk-old, puppies, I haven’t found much time to do much computer work other than post pictures of my little babies — & even those are a few days behind now.

But I did find an extra couple of quiet hours when I could start a website for friends who’d asked me over a month ago.  Of course, they’re very understanding, but I still wanted to at least get started & give them some options to look at.

It’s so nice to start creating again.
