Friends, Food, Fire, Fun and Fondue

Life was good today, it doesn't get any better than friends, food, fire, fun and fondue mixed with some glass goodness?   Once or twice a year a group of women and one guy from all over Michigan rent the West Michigan Glass Society for a meeting of the DiPWADS, it stands for Doesn't Play Well With Any Divas. During our day at the glass society we share ideas, melt glass and this time we had a fondue party.  It was a great success and as always we could have fed half the homeless of the greater Kalamazoo area but as you know when making beads n such you need a whole lot of nourishment.  Some of the women also made paperweights in the hot shop, I can't wait to get mine home on Monday.  There will be photos of those to come.

I can't wait to do it again in September, here are some photos of the fun.
This is the big lampworking table with 14 torches.

This would be the food room,  it took the whole room to house all that food.

Mike and Sandy shaping her paperweight.
Heating up the bottom of the paperweight so it will sit square or Melissa has just been hired at Ihop :)
