Almost Like Christmas

Is there anything better than getting new art making supplies?

Look what the UPS man showed up with yesterday.
Just in time for all of that holiday bead making - I ordered in a beautifully, excessive amount of glass.

I'm the kind of artist who likes to have, and use, every color in the crayon box.

I know, I lot of them look so similar, but many of them are cored canes. That means that the centers are a different color than the outside so when they melt you get lovely striations. This kind of rod is perfect for leaves and flower petals.

O! It's just too good.

And the cherry on top of my glassy cupcake?
Glitter for glass, or in other words: cased aventurine rods.
