The Holiday's are by far my favorite time of year! I really get into the festivities and if I see something I like, leave it to me to try and personalize it and tweak it into something new and special!
A couple of years ago I saw some of these lighted block decorations at a fund raiser. I just loved them and took the idea home to my husband and said "We have to make these!". He's so accommodating that he got a drill bit and stood out in the cold freezing his hands drilling glass blocks for me. Of course once other people saw them, we were using them as gifts. Then others wanted them and I started selling them. Every time he turned around I was sending him on a trip for more supplies.
So... when this time of year rolls around, my husband "prepares" himself. Between ornaments, candy, Holiday Crunch, glass blocks, cakes, and the routine craziness of the holiday's, I totally turn our world upside down. My kids are great too! They LOVE helping and had a blast stuffing lights inside of blocks for me.
Here's the start of what is available this Holiday Season. These are all custom made lighted Glass Block decorations. You can get a variety of sizes and designs. If you see something you like, RESERVE IT!! No two are alike and I can't promise that I'll be able to get my hands on the same supplies to duplicate a block if someone snatches it out from under you.
These blocks will be on sale at Redemption Christian PreSchool during their Breakfast with Santa on December 5, 2009 and I will be at New Life Presbyterian Church for the annual Glenside Farmer's Market Holiday Craft Show. Also on December 5, 9:00am-3:00pm. Plan to come out and purchase Holiday Crunch and Glass Blocks among many other items available that day.
