Welcome to Merlin Glass and Art's first ever blog! I am Lizzie designer and creator at Merlin Glass and Art and this blog will just be my musings about life as a free lance glass creator, mummy and craft enthusiast! I will also be sharing with you my favourite artists, of whom I seem to meet more every day and a little bit about their work.
I am very excited about what 2013 will mean for Merlin Glass and Art, 2012 was the beginning of a fabulous time for me with my wee business really taking off, which means I get to do what I love on a semi full time basis and still be a stay at home Mummy to my 2 darlings.
I began 2013, by introducing 'Puff' the Dragon a design I came up with a few months ago, but happily for the business I had been too busy with other things to create him, I was so pleased with him and will be sad to part with him, but he is currently available in my shop, through my FB page or in my Etsy shop.
The next few weeks and months will be taken up with fulfilling orders and also bringing new designs from my head, to paper and finally to glassy creations, beginning with Valentines, Mothers day and Easter and a few other offerings in between.... My first Valentines design of 2013 is a little pair of Love Birds, with hearts integrated into their chests.... soon there will be Love Cats coming too, watch this space......
