The glasses are a "must have" to keep your eyesight.  You can also get them at a welding supply company.  Have you had ANY instruction?  The first thing I tell students is that everything in glass is either hot, sharp or poisonous.  Glass is so addicting...I love it!

exactly! well said! I am so addicted.... lol
Glasses are a MUST. Also watch out for that torch.. I have hear horror stories about the fireworks brand. Check into getting a HotHead torch. There is one at the hardware store almost identical to the HH too now.

It can be a seasonal thing.. do it outside on a table. I would also look into lampworkers near you. see if one of them would want to let you torch with them, or if someone has the space. Maybe trade for labor or grunt studio work (like fusing shorts together lol) Even trade for knowledge and beads... I moved into a friends studio it is the best thing i have ever done for my glass! She is also very happy having me around. Check out Lampwork etc for more lampworkers and to maybe find someone near you!

make lawn/garden mosaic stones. Start with a stone, mosaic and grout. simple and outdoorsy..

you could also do this in molds or with standard side garden blocks to get cool ideas.

Have you thought about doing glass vases? glass on glass is cool!

if it fits  in your oven (or not) try enamel paints. They are in with the bottles acrylics and made to paint on glass. You could combine this with etching to create a wild look! (etched on one side in a pattern, painted on the other.. very cool) Then create a wood base for it to rest in, or have it professionally framed.
