My Newest Hobby

In a post back in January, I mentioned a new hobby I've recently picked up.  I wrote: "Finally, I have recently picked up a new hobby. Something that is just for myself and my personal enjoyment. I'm not sure where it's going to lead me, but I'm hoping it's something I can really stick with and have fun with. I'll have a post about it soon!"

Well, after a month of "practicing", creating, and brainstorming, I'm ready to share what I've been up to!  I will be opening up an Etsy shop at some point, but I'd like to see how my work goes over first.  I think I'll call my shop, "Classy Glass"...what do you think?

I've had a lot of fun coming up with ideas and creating what's in my head.  I started painting on goblets, then moved on to wine glasses.  I'm working on some other projects right now, but I won't be sharing those until next week!  I hope you enjoy these!

This was my very first design.  It took some adding of snowflakes (Mike's idea) before I was thrilled with the result!  These are gorgeous with a votive candle in them!

Then one day I was inspired to make a snowman in the snow too!

I created these for New Year's.  I also made some glasses for everyone at our New Year's Eve party, you can see those here.

Polka-dots are aways fun!

I'm really partial to this design as daisies are my favorite flowers!

I love these heart-shaped dishes!

Like I said, polka-dots are always fun! :)

This is my new favorite design.  I just finished it today, and it's just perfect for Valentine's Day!


  1. Love the daisies and the "I love you"...very fun!

  2. Wow Melissa! These are really nice. Good job!

  3. Love them all. The daisies are beautiful! Great job!!

  4. Great ideas! Good luck!

    I went to a birthday party the other night and we painted wine much fun. I love the one I did.


  5. Those are really neat Melissa! I bet they are really pretty with a votive in them also.
    Great job.

  6. I'd love to learn to do that Melissa. I wanted to have some ladies over to paint wine glasses, but didn't really know how to go about it. Would you be interested in holding an impromptu fun class at my house. I could by the wine glasses and paint.

  7. Wow, girl! You really have it going on! Nice art!

  8. Thanks for linking up to the It's a Keeper Thursday blog hop! I hope you come back this Thursday and link something new!
