Back in Action

It's been a while since I posted anything at all, and this last year has been very slow for this blog in general for a variety of reasons.  My dad was really sick with cancer and he passed away in May of this year, work has been hectic, and as a result, my creative energy has been pretty low.

The good news is that I am starting to feel like myself again, and am coming back to the torch with a vengeance.  You can expect to start seeing colour testing posts in this space in the very near future.

The final thing that has been slowing my blogging down is that I have started a new business.  I bought Gail Joseph's 104 COE frit blend recipes and a really large quantity of 104 COE frit, and I will be selling both her frit blends and recipes that I develop myself under the brand name FrittyBits™.  

My new business is called 'Melanie Graham Studios', and you can find my new website here.  I am selling both beads and frit mainly out of my Etsy shop, which is also feeding my website.  It is all very integrated, which was way easier than I thought it was going to be.

If you like the idea of frit that is all 104 COE so that you can use as much of it as you want with your 104 COE glass, then these are the frit blends for you.  Here are a few pictures of the frit blends that I have for sale.  I have 37 different blends at present, which I will be expanding over the next few months leveraging my colour testing results.



  1. So glad you are getting back into the swing of things Melanie!

  2. So sorry for your loss. Lost both my step dad and father in-law this last year. It pretty much put me down creatively. I totally get it. I am so glad you are back I have missed you sooo much; I didn't even realize until you stopped blogging how much i depended on your reviews for new ideas when I get stuck. Not to mention I really appreciate your humor and blogging style.

  3. Thank you, Cherie :) It means a lot that you value this work that I am doing, and I am thrilled to be back at it.
