Red Roses

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. ~ William Arthur Ward

Today was a great day, weather wise it was perfect, breakfast was delicious, I saw my family, and I got to blow glass.  I was so grateful to my friend Bob McLeod for reaching out to me a few weeks ago when my Emma’s element broke and offered me access to his studio.  What I didn’t expect was to meet another glass blower, Suzi! It’s been a long time, like ten years since I got to assist someone in the hotshop, run ideas by another like minded person – it was just a great day!
I worked on some special pieces today, Christmas gifts to others.  Tonight, reflecting on my day, and the loss that has surrounded my friends I just need everyone in my life to know they are important to me.  That I do love you.

The Sea Star is said to be sensory creatures, nerves that run from their center to the tip of their limbs. It facilitates feelings such as strong, patient, magical, renewing, healing, sensitive, perception to name a few.

This past year with TideLine has been another successful year and your continued love and support is appreciated.  We, Vicki and myself just feel so blessed and look forward to another year creating with glass.  So Thank you! Happy Holidays, kiss your loved ones, and Merry Christmas!

Lucille Ball

My Dad always says being married to Vicki is like being married to Lucille Ball… because you never know what she’s going to get up to and into.  If you know Vicki – she is always trying something new, creating the trend, and coming up with something you’d never think of on your own.
Her last creation lives up to her reputation – candle holders… she has spent months mastering the technique, fine tuning it, experimenting, (in my side of the shop too) only to come up with these beauties.

Holy Snow Batman!

In case you didn’t know, it snowed today.  What a beautiful site from inside my cozy warm home.  It is starting to feel like Christmas… winter has officially arrived and I am craving short bread.

We do have some things left from our shows, Tidal Balls, a few Jelly Fish, Sea Stars, a couple Driftlines, etc.  Vicki and I do work full time but that doesn’t mean we won’t try and accommodate those special requests of already made glass art.  Just shoot one of us an email or msg us on Facebook.  We are usually pretty quick to reply!  u6If you’re in the Bowser area, the Salish Sea Market has quite an array of blown works available for sale too!

Sea Urchins and Thanks

What an incredible weekend! We are so thankful for such an amazing weekend spent at the Charles Dickens Christmas Craft Faire.
Getting into the holiday spirit, I wanted to share with you a new design from TideLine.  Blown sea urchins – they are small measuring approx. 3″ across… designed for the tree!
