I had to switch gears to do a little Christmas crafting. I've been collecting supplies for years and last year did very little crafting at all as I was working on Pyrex pendants for exchanges. I need to get some of this out of my system and yesterday I finally tackled a project that has been in my head for over a year. This is the first of my vintage Pyrex dish dioramas. Most all the materials are vintage from cotton felt to mica and ornaments. I scavenge thrift stores for materials including old decorations that are in bad shape, but their materials are recyclable.

I still have a bunch of vintage glass shards to work on, I'm trying to do a piece or two a day. This piece is from a Hazel Atlas mixing bowl. I traded whole Pyrex to get the shards of this bowl, it was totally worth it. Had a lot of fun making the ornament and digging through my hoard of crafting supplies I've been thrifting for years.

I always have a long list of things I want to do, things I want to make. I have so many requests for my pendants and ornaments and I don't have enough time to actually make them on demand. Holidays are a great occasion to make things available to people--so I'm starting to rough out some shapes now.
