a sad moment in our history....

I do not know what to say except it is with a heavy heart that I am thinking and praying for the families of those killed and wounded today an innocent movie theater.   The news has been filled with anguish and there will be many sleepless nights filled with loss and too numerous tears to begin to count.  I am not sure what we can do to heal and prevent these senseless shootings.  I can only hug my family closer to my heart and recognize how fragile our life here on earth is.

I went down to the studio and continued my organizational attack on my supplies.  I did take some pictures of the chaos...maybe I should be ashamed but I know I am on the right track to get it all labeled and ready to use at a moments notice.  Ken and I had a quick lunch and then walked over to the Works Gallery to see the Grand students of some of the best and well known glass artists here in the USA.  The future is sparkling when I take time to examine the latest works of these young and daring young men and women.  I am posting some quick photos that will also include some the youngest glass artists who were participating in the Works Art Camp.  Our studio manager Larry Tuber is going to be very busy for the next couple of days. 

I love visiting with Henry and his cousin!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and remember to touch and hug those that you dearly love!  Imagine and LIVE in Peace,  Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

I am down to sorting my multitude of alphabets. Well the buttons and beads are next while I have to make a decision what vessels that will allow me to see the collections and have them right at hand.  I am working on a special design wall hanging for The Works Fall fund raiser!  I never really seem to have to worry about "What's Next????"

Tomorrow Ken and I will make an affordable selection of storage cabinets for my collections...I still have to decided doors or no doors!  Yikes this is a big JOB!!!!


  1. I can always count on your photos to return tons of smiles even in the midst of great sadness. Thank you.
    The glass art is stunning, thanks for those photos also!

  2. The news of the shooting made me physically sick to my stomach. I just don't understand.
    There was no sense to it. It was so random. So many innocent people, children....lost their lives for nothing. So wrong. My own nieces went to the midnight showing that same night in our hometown and my mind won't even let me really think about it.

    I don't know which one is Henry and which is the cousin but one have them has the same hair-style that I do! I LOVE it! The photo made me smile when I didn't even feel like it a moment before.

  3. I am so with you on praying for the families of the victims and also the poor innocents who had to flee for their lives. It doesn't make sense to a sane person and obviously this young man was not sane. What a horrible terror for time to come for so many.
