Hello Botched Glass Snowcone, Goodbye Summer

I picked up a random white to make the cone for this snowcone pendant. The glass ended up being not very white at all. No wonder it was nice to work with (white glass tends to be tricky).

Posting this to burn into my memory the importance of double-checking / really knowing the colours I’m working with. Even though this didn’t work out, it is my last snowcone of the season but candy corns call for white too!

Goodbye summer. Happy Fall!

Alchemy Mint, 441 Implosion

I love working with Glass Alchemy’s “Alchemy Mint”. Here it is as a backing and loop on an implosion. I put black dots onto a flattened piece of clear glass and imploded them into the clear, creating the effect you see. Then I added the minty colour!

Fun fun.

Pink Haired Cannabis

So, all of a sudden, almost every plant in my garden has pink hairs. These are very different varieties but all are rocking some shade of pink.


p.s. Don’t mean mean to the foxtails, I think they are kinda cute.

At The Mayfair Theatre: Trench 11

I visited the historic Mayfair Theatre in Ottawa, Ontario last night. Such an amazing place to enjoy a film, it has been around since 1932 and the popcorn prices are still outrageously reasonable!

My friends and I watched a movie called Trench 11, which is a horror film set in World War I. This film is all about how evil men of science can get! Which is pretty fucking evil.

There is only one woman in the entire film, and her time on screen is brief. The man she is sleeping with tells her, “she’ll love Winnipeg.” Which everyone in the theatre got a real kick out of. (No offense, Winnipeg.)

We’ve seen Nazi zombies before (Dead Snow) but this film approaches the subject in a way that … is in my opinion, actually fairly realistic, setting it apart from many other films in the genre.

Some might say the disturbing creatures that used to be men in this movie are not zombies but … I say close enough!

Final thought: Trench 11 is 1,000 times better than The Walking Dead. Fear parasitic worms and being trapped underground? This film is for you!
