A Sad Day for Me

This is VERY difficult to write.

Due to changes at my job, I will no longer be able to teach very much. At the most, possibly one class a year, if that. I can do nothing to change this at this point in time. I hope in the future, that I will be able to teach again, but for now it is just not possible.

There are many people that read this little Blog that are former students of mine as well as folks that may have wanted to take a class from me in the future. I want to thank all of my former students for taking my classes! You guys have meant more to me than you can imagine. I have learned from you and been uplifted by you. You all rock!

To those that may have wanted to to take future classes with me, you have my deepest apologies. I would change this if I could. The future holds so many things that we cannot see, it is possible that I will be able to teach again someday. If that happens, I hope you will feel that I might still have something to offer.

I will still continue to make beads, and I hope I will still be able to write some tutorials. I hope that I can keep on learning and developing new techniques.

Glass has become such a huge part of my life, it is difficult to imagine life without it!

Flame on!


  1. Dear Kimberly,

    you are one of my best teacher ever - I learned so much from you and your class was so much joy, I a am so grateful for.
    Thanks for being a wonderful teacher for me,

    wish you all my best for the future,

  2. Dear Kim~
    I'm so sorry and sad to hear about your increased work load with your job. You know how much I love your work and listening to you talk about glass—you're such a natural teacher and it's a huge shame more people aren't lucky to know you in person like I do. Good luck with everything and I'll be keeping my fingers and toes crossed that things change for the better soon! *Ü*

  3. What about dumping your day job and just doing glass?

  4. Kimberly, So sad to read this and so grateful I got to take a class with you. You know, shorter classes could be an option and don't forget holidays. I would give up turkey dinner with my family for you! ;-)
