Melting some glass

I have been trying for a couple days to make some beads, but my mojo was missing. So I decided to melt some glass doing a fusing project. I'd love to show you pictures but the kiln is still running so all I have is my quick sneek peek photo. I know it doesn't look like much, but hopefully they turn out pretty cool.
I mainly did these to do a test run on Little Bit my smaller kiln that I bought in Mississippi last month.
Tomorrow is my Hotties meeting and I won't get to melt anything but bottles tomorrow night. But that's okay, As long as I melt something I'm happy.
I've gotta get my Cricut out and make some calling cards for an upcoming Cricut Circle event on the 23rd. Busy, Busy!!!

Here is one of the latest Recycled Bottles

This is my favorite bottle I have melted so far. Love it. Love recycling and making something useful and artsy.

As you can tell it is large. Just wanted to post a picture tonight. Got a batch of bottles in there now. Wait till tomorrow.

Been playing with my new Kilns

That's right I ended up with 2 new kilns. Last time I posted I was waiting for Big Momma to get here. Well she made it finally and I love her. Then on a fluke a lady in Mississippi posted that she was selling a kiln and giving away some fusible glass. Well, free glass. I'm all over that. It just so happened that we were going to Mississippi that next week. Well, I got the glass. Amazing glass, sorted by coe and everything. Lots of Dicro in there as well. But when I saw the kiln, I was excited. looked like it was brand new and I got it for less than 1/2 price. I am very excited to say I now have 4 kilns. One I will be (hopefully turning into a vitrograph kiln) and then my bead kiln and the two fusing kilns.

Okay, so I try and try to post something, but m,y goal for this month is to post a project everyday. It may be one of my recycled bottle cheese trays or a bead of another project, but I will try to keep up with this.
