Sangria Anyone?

Hitting the Sangria bar at the
Mac Worthington Gallery of Contemporary Art, Columbus, Ohio last Saturday night.
This was the artist's reception which is always celebrated at the gallery on the 3rd Saturday of every month.
It's a time to get together with other exhibiting artists and be able to talk to prospective clients.
My new stained glass exhibition piece for August hangs in it's usual spot on the window.

My dear friend, Dave, in front of a Mac Worthington painting that sold that evening.
Go Mac!

Some more fabulous and funky art on display at the gallery.

I must give credit to Danielle of BeautifulSchlopp Glass Art and Jewelry
for presenting the original Handmade Pay It Forward.
I was told that I would be receiving a handmade gift from Danielle and was chosen from her blog comments.
I am very excited. She has absolutely gorgeous glass work and I highly recommend that you visit her blog and Etsy shop.
Thanks Danielle, I look forward to your gift.
You can still comment on my last post for Pay It Forward, be in the first 5, and receive a handmade gift from me, how cool is that!.

Play The Game - Pay It Forward

What goes around, comes around.
"Nautilus' is a stained glass window I designed and constructed many years ago. When I was ready to add a new post, I wanted an image that, to me, represented the Pay It Forward concept. It reminds me of the ripple effect we create in life and it's infinite possibilities.

I found this Pay It Forward Game on a fellow Etsian's blog. http://afrenchgirlinniagara.blogspot.com/

Okay - Here's how it works: Verbatim

I am entering into the following contract with the first 5 people who comment on this post and then commit to do the same on their blog. I'm the world's worst when it comes to commitments via the BLOG - but this one really appeals to me!

Just read below and if you feel up to the task copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment.

I am willing to send a surprise worldwide (I live in the U.S., BUT before any goodies are sent out - I must see a post on your blog - send me a link - that would be perfect).

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make. Whatcha get is whatcha get.
2. What I create will be just for you, with love.
3. It’ll be done this year (2009).
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world and not something cyber.
5. I reserve the right to do something strange or weird (though I don't really make strange or weird myself - but left the text in - just in case someone else may think so).
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.
7. Send your mailing address – after I contact you.

Welcome to everyone. I will however, make an effort to do something that you like based on what I see on your blog, BUT there are no guarantees.

Have fun, and make a difference in somebody's life today.
