This month, January 2012, I officially registered my business name, A Glimpse of Grace. I also got my federal and state ID numbers. I'm opening a business checking account. It's been a little overwhelming in many ways, but I am excited to be able to share my glass more widely.
I am continuing to make my own artistic series framed in found window frames, but I'm also trying to make some pieces that are less expensive. My Valentine's Day piece, highlighted in my last blog entry, is the first of my holiday specials. I originally made three pieces and posted them on my facebook page. I sold those three in about a week. Then yesterday, when I was in my studio making another "One Great Love" for someone, my phone received three messages ordering "One Great Love."
I was excited, but UGH! I didn't want my glass-making to turn into drudgery. I wanted to make my next piece! Then, as I was building "One Great Love" again, I realized that I had a unique opportunity: I could pray for the person(s) I was creating for. Instead of feeling pressured, I began to feel blessed. Another good lesson from "One Great Love!"
