This is a great new song by my youngest son. Check it out and see what you think. I miss his guitar playing around the house. He took some lessons, but mainly taught himself. He can hear a song and then just start playing it. But he also likes writing songs of his own.

Total Lunar Eclipse and some Pictures

I wasn't sure I wanted to stay up late enough to see the lunar eclipse last night, but when my phone beeped and woke me up, I figured why not.  Especially since the next one won't be until 2014.  I got my camera out and got a few pictures of it, although with the lateness, they're not as good as I hoped.  Plus, I didn't have a tripod handy.  But it was exciting anyway.  I'd heard it would be red, but I never saw any red.  I may have missed it, since I finally gave up at about 2:00 a.m. and went back to bed.  I figured I'd seen the first half, that was enough.  Anyway, here's my pictures.  In the last one, you have to look really close, but you can see just the last shadow of the moon before it's completely covered.

Etsy Texas Style Treasury-Blue Fused Glass Strip Plate

Another great treasury!  My Blue Fused Glass Strip Plate is in the Etsy Texas Style Treasury!  This little plate makes a great little serving dish, jewelry holder, candy dish, candle holder.  Whatever you need it can be used for.  It's made of 2 different shades of blue and a light mauve glass.  The edges are beveled, and it's slightly slumped for a shallow dish.  Anyone that loves blue would love this dish.  Be sure to check it out in my Etsy shop, KayzKreationz.  You can also check out the Etsy Texas Style Treasury and give it some love, or find some other great items all made by Texans and in Texas shops.

KayzKreationz talks about a Soft-Flex Wire Giveaway

If you love craft wire, you'll love this giveaway by Soft-Flex on Andrew Thornton's blog.  He's giving away 6 spools of their craft wire this Tuesday.  It is peel and scratch resistant and also is clear coated to prevent tarnishing.  They have over 20 colors of craft wire, plus bare copper and vintage bronze.  This wire is great if you have metal allergies, too, since it is lead and nickel free.  And, it's made in the USA!  So check out this giveaway.  But don't leave too many comments, because I'd really like to win those 6 spools. LOL

Bud Lite Beer Bottle Windchime-Recycled

I love making these windchimes.  They're made out of Beer Bottles-Recycled.  I take the labels off, clean the bottles well, fire them slowly in my kiln with wire fused in them for hanging.  Once they've cooled, I take them out, clean them and decoupage the labels back on with a decoupage glue.  Then I hang them from a piece of driftwood from our small Texas ranch with strong fishing line and then use screw eyes and chain to hang the entire windchime.  Everybody seems to have a favorite.  And these seem to be a favorite with my customers.  I even did one this summer for a lady here in Texas.  It had a Coors Lite, Miller Lite and Bud Lite bottle for her "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" area in her home.  These make great gifts and look great hanging either in your home or outside on your deck/porch.  But, I have to warn you, they make LOTS of noise. LOL.  Also, if you're hanging them outside, you may want to seal the tops of the bottles so water doesn't get down in them and freeze and break your bottles. (I learned this the hard way.  The man I bought my first set from didn't tell me that.)  The Bud Lite Beer Bottle Windchime-Recycled can be purchased in my Etsy shop, KayzKreationz.  I'm currently also working on a Corona Beer Bottle windchime.
