Don’t be conFused

Warning: Don’t be conFused, this blog post is not entirely about glass.

This may come as a shock to you…I read blogs that aren’t about glass.  I have always loved creativity and craft and enjoy so many blogs that inspire me to be more creative in my life.

Today I would like to share one of those blogs with you.  Tutto Bella is written by 3 adorable sisters; Jessica, Jenna, and Jodi.  Here is how Tre Sorelle (three sisters) describe their blog:

It’s our passion for all things beautiful (tutto bella) that we created this blog. We love weddings and believe true love lasts a lifetime. We believe fine stationery sets the tone for a party. We love catching up on the latest trends in fashion, colors and decor, while remaining true to the classics. We love babies. We love good photos, cocktails and a memorable party. And we believe the details, even the smallest detail, can make all the difference.

So why am I featuring Tutto Bella on a blog that is supposed to be about glass? watch this…

Somewhere out there a fused glass artist just swooned!  When I read Tutto Bella’s blog post, DIY Serving Tray (Dec. 19, 2011), I couldn’t help but think of fused glass.  How clever, fused candy trays!

I emailed Tre Sorelle to ask permission to feature their blog and use their photos.  Jessica emailed back giving permission and suggested that using a clear hard candy, like Jolly Ranchers, would make the trays look more glass-like.  I think Jessica has the makings of a fused glass artist inside of her!

I see single and multi-stacked pieces of hard candy melting away in my oven.  Or even candy canes would fuse nicely!  Give this a try and then share your results with me.

It is FRIDAY!
