Saturday Crafting: Glass Trees and Crafty Links!

Saturday can be a busy day around here. Laundry, errands, cleaning but I always have something out on my craft table just waiting for me to dive in. I've got a holiday theme running on my work bench. I'm fusing left over glass rods into ornaments. These two trees below are waiting for me to even out their edges on the glass grinder.

After I get the laundry going, I'll start evening out the edges of these trees.  There are other crafty bloggers who have the holidays on their minds. Make sure you check them out!
