|GOT AN URGE
Cyndi Beebee and Linda Milbrandt
IN THE BEGINNING...
Click on photos for larger view
The phrase Got An Urge started about 40 years ago
when my sisters and I would call each other on the
phone and just say… “got an urge?”
This comment meant we needed to take a break and
literally figure out a way within hours to go to Vegas.
Which meant we had to find baby sitters for the kids and
either drive or fly to Vegas….which we accomplished
many, many times.
Also, 32 years ago Linda and I met each other and we
would include Linda in the our Vegas trips. Then Linda
and I would also use “got an urge” which meant “let’s go
to the movies”.
Got an urge turned into a phrase that family and friends
started using for many adventures.
We sold candies and cookies until 2004 and I got too
busy with my regular job to keep baking. Linda and I
wanted to do something fun together and decided to
start a clothing line in late 2007……and here we are!
We are having so much fun working together!

Janice Osborne is a Glass Artist living in Hermosa Beach,
California. She started her career in Glass in the late 70’s
doing Stained glass, windows, doors, lamps chandeliers
and even room dividers. About eight years ago she
decided to broaden her glass knowledge using the kiln to
fuse and manipulate glass. Each piece is hand crafted and
takes several days to make with multiple firings. Today
she is enjoying making her jewelry from glass she designs
herself and her standing glass cats, dogs, horses, wind
chimes and plates are all made to put a smile on your face.

BY VICKY TRENKLE
Without technical training, I began making stepping
stones as gifts for family and friends. My family
suggested I sell my art so I decided to do so.
I use recycled material such as pottery, jewelry, and
beads, typically purchased at garage sales and thrift
stores, to embed in the concrete stepping stones.
The stone art is colorful and comes in different sizes
and shapes. The stepping stones are decorative and
can be walked on. It is bling for the garden or home.
I also attach the recycled material to small metal
sculptures and picture frames to add color and
character to these pieces.
Since each piece is unique, no two pieces of art are
alike. All of the art may be used both outdoors and

Fused glass artist, Debra Barsy, creates her striking
Pacific Winds™ wind chimes and light catchers using
shapes, textures and colors in glass. She has been
designing and making her original creations since early
1993 when she developed the idea of decorative glass
Her many original designs range from her popular
“Dichroic Diamonds,” to “Desert Sunrise,” “Full Sun”
and “Elegant Flower” to “Tropical Fish,” some using
reflective Dichroic glass for a distinctive look. Debra’s
eye for design is accented by her color combinations
that compliment today’s styles of decor. At any given
time, at least 40 designs populate her display racks,
with many new styles and one-of-a-kind chimes
Debra creates her work by firing glass in a kiln to melt
colors together and give the glass its smooth texture.
The glass is then cooled slowly, annealing it to add
strength. Because of this process, her chimes will
easily withstand strong winds. The results are chimes
with a subtle, relaxing sound and a strong visual
Debra’s work has been accepted into many well known
shows including the Southwest Arts Festival, The
Indian Wells Arts Festival, Thousand Oaks Artwalk,
Tempe Festival of the Arts and many other quality
events. She was awarded a Creativity Award by Pacific
Fine Arts at the California Strawberry Festival,
Honorable Mention at the Studio City Festival of the
Arts, and she received a third place ribbon at the 2008
Indian Wells Arts Festival.
Her work is very popular at major art shows throughout
California, and is sold in over fifty galleries and shops
all over the country.
Debra began her career in glass art work apprenticing
with Tom Glose in Allentown, Pennsylvania, a stained
glass artist known for his 40 foot rendition of corporate
trademark, “Nipper” in RCA’s original headquarters.
This experience inspired her to further her knowledge
of glass technique and to develop her design and
fabrication talents. In 1985, she became involved with
glass fusing, learning the skill from fusing expert, Gil
Reynolds, of Portland Oregon. She perfected her work
over the years, creating bowls, vases, and a line of art
deco accent lamps before introducing Pacific Winds™
wind chimes 17 years ago. Glass is her passion, and
her enthusiasm for her work shows in each piece she
