Getting To YES!

Many times, I notice that my mind jumps to why I can't do something and I have to convince myself that I can do the job.

This was the case when a piece was brought for us to repair. The first concern, the first no was that the type of piece usually sells for 10 to 15 dollars and the repair would run $45 per piece of glass.

Then the second no was that we don't carry fractures and streamers glass.

As I looked for a substitute piece of glass, it occurred to me that I could make my own fractures and streamers glass. So, the lights came on and I felt happy about the prospects of success. I took a piece of hammered clear, cut up pink and white glass and I picked a black noodle, broke it up and set it up on the kiln fired piece.
Once I quit saying no, I found a way to accomplish the repair.
