Something special has happened to us. Distinctly Oklahoma! It's out!!! The June, 2008 issue of "Distinctly Oklahoma" features Bella Forte Glass Studio in a great article starting on page 38 through page 43. It's the issue with David Boren on the cover. They probably won't have it on the website (http://distinctlyoklahoma.com/) until June, but the magazine just hit the streets. Many thanks to all the leadership and fine staff at Distinctly Oklahoma, from Stephanie Lawler, Brent Fuchs (http://www.brentfuchs.com/) at the portrait studio, and David Althouse who interviewed us and wrote the article. Get your copy at Barnes and Noble, and Full Circle Bookstores. Also on Wednesday, May 28th we are going to have a 3 minute short spot on Channel 9 (News 9) with Gwen Faulkner Lippert where they will be interviewing us and talking about blown glass. Really sharp! I've got some new pieces we've done but haven't taken the photos yet and excited about doing something a little new with some cane. Maybe this week or weekend, and if it turns out, some photos will be forthcoming.
"The Highest Recommendation I Have!" goes to David and Alice Manney and Jamila and Mark Whisenant (David and Alice's daughter and son-n-law). A family business owned and run by the family called "Kwik Kar". They change oil and do all sorts of service work and mechancial work on your vehicle. They are located right in front of Lowes of Yukon there on "Garth Brooks Blvd". You can trust David and his family to be fair and treat you right. I tell my own mother that's where she needs to go if she ever needs anything done on her car. David has integrity and runs his business with it as well. Get your service work done there and you will be glad and your car will be a "happy car".
Also, just found out Lloyd Daniels down in Texas checks out my blog from time to time. It was good to see you and Teresa today and thank you for checking us out! A big HELLO! to you guys!
