I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and New Year! Luckily for me, though, I still have two more weeks until I have to go back to class. I've been spending my time off by relaxing with family and friends, as well as doing some sight seeing. Last week I visited the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, Arizona. The weather was beautiful and I took some rather stunning photographs of pieces of blown glass that were integrated into the landscape and photos of the landscape itself. Aren't these Chihuly sculptures pretty?
Now I'm currently visiting family in Illinois. It's wonderful seeing my parents. My mom also loves to craft, so I'm sure that we'll be doing lots of it for the next two weeks!
