The past couple of years have been fairly busy around the Holiday Season as we thankfully try to keep up. Many of our creations are shipped to clients across the oceans. Prospective customers also ask if we ship to their country. The thought occurred to me one day that it would be good to have a visual representation of where our creations have journeyed across the planet over these many years. Here's how we did it.

And helped us reach our goal, then go on to surpass it by 17% before the deadline brought pledges to a close. This exhibit would not have been possible without their generous support and we can't thank them enough. Our spirits were greatly lifted as the pledges began coming in, so it wasn't only funding that was needed. As a result, our first Kickstarter Project is now in the

Every so often, I receive queries in my mailbox asking about various topics. Today, I was asked an astronomy question that intrigued me:

Odd how it can change.

Back when the Big Sur Fire was raging and threatening to burn our studio to the ground, it felt really good the first time that it settled upon us. Kept the fire from advancing so quickly, due to the moisture content of the atmosphere. That fire burned for more than two months. When the clouds came, it wasn't over, by any means, but it sure was welcome and helped us to relax just a tiny bit.

…and Another All-Nighter

   Posted by: BJ Johnson » Tags: , ,

Managed to get into bed before the Sun came up this time; but not by much. Lot's to do when you're working two jobs, both of them overtime; Glassblower by day—Internet Technologies Wizard by night. At least for the time being—it'll be back to 3D Modeling once the social networking project has gone mainstream enough to turn my attention to other tasks.

Just finished a short blowing session. Well, it was 6 hours but we didn't get started until 15:30, after I took care of a few page edits and read the
