I participated in a Secret Santa exchange with an Elite Force of “geeks” this year. When I was assigned my recipient, I found that he really liked games and loved dice and miniatures. I thought perhaps a piece of my stained glass work would be nice.
My creative juices started to flow and I thought a D20 stained glass piece would be perfect. I would have LOVED to do a 3D D20 but I don’t think I’m there technically yet. Plus there was an issue of shipping it from WA to VA and I was concerned it was going to be damaged like my little Reddit Alien was when I shipped him out this summer.
I choose a piece of Spectrum wispy purple and clear wavy glass for the background. The wispy glass was being very accommodating this year and the pattern on the glass turned out really nice.
My present arrived in one piece and was a huge success. A direct quote from the forum post was “HOLY CRAP THIS IS THE MOST AWESOMEST OF AWESOME THINGS EVER”
Seeing that made me so relieved, happy, proud and then relieved again. It arrived, he liked it, it’s not damaged and it’s in the exact place it was meant to be. Who could ask for anything more.
So without further ado, here is the piece I made for my Secret Santa exchange.
