And She Huffed And She Puffed....

I am always looking for new art to do. So when a Groupon showed up for glass blowing, I really wanted to give it a try.

I bought two, so I asked Miss Kristi if she wanted to join me for an early Saturday morning of glass blowing.

We showed up at Elements Glass in northwest Portland. We were handed our safety goggles as Aaron heated up our poles.

I chose my colors and then it was off to heat it up....

Once it was hot enough, it was time to start blowing it into a glass ball....

They turned out spectacular. Kristi's was green and mine was blue. On pick-up day we decided to exchange glass balls - I got my favorite color with a little bit of Kristi inside!

And afterwards we spent some time looking at some of the "real" glass works!!

A very fun morning spent with my favorite girl child!


  1. You are always game to try any and everything and I love that about you. Glass blowing!! Yet another adventure . . . you amaze and inspire me.
