Tipping Point – the critical point in a situation, process or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place.
The Tipping Point of the glass – When the design is visualized, before the engraving process even begins.
My Tipping Point – When I was “Let Go” from my Administrator Position (after 20+ years with the company) WHILE I was on maternity leave for the birth of my youngest daughter.
I didn’t realize how hard it would be to be a stay at home mom. I have worked for more than half my life, since I was 16. Being home was a radical change. A friend of mine, who does wood burning suggested that I try glass engraving to keep from going stir crazy. I bought a micro motor and began engraving glass that was around my house. I love it. During the day while the baby naps I plan out my next project, then as soon as my husband comes home from work I go into my studio and begin engraving (I don’t engrave any glassware unless my husband or someone else is here with the baby). I would not have been able to do any of this without the help, love and support of my husband, Eric.
