One Week Until ComFest!

ComFest is just a week away! Am I excited? Yes! Am I stressed? You betcha! My little boy is sick, which doesn't help. I have most of my inventory ready, but I'm going to try to squeeze a few more light catchers in. I hired a babysitter for tomorrow so that I can work.

If you are in Ohio, consider going to ComFest. It is a 3 day Art and Music Festival. It's HUGE and FUN! Learn more at: www.comfest.com. I'll follow up with photos after the festival. If you come, introduce yourself at my booth. Look for the "Wish Art Glass" banner!

Etsy Storque Glass Article

Vanessa (Etsy Admin.) published a fabulous article on glass in the Storque, Etsy's online magazine. The article features an informative interview about blown glass with providenceartglass. Have you ever wondered how blown glass is made? The article has wonderful information and videos detailing the process. One of my candle holders was featured in the Related Items section. You can view that by clicking on the pic of that section. Click on the pic of the glass blower to read the article. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon!!

I'm a little late posting this, but let's play catch-up...

At the end of May I vended at Festival in the Park in Roanoke. I won First Place in 3 Dimensional Non-Wearable Art! Yippee! The cash prize was much appreciated as Monday's weather and traffic tanked. I did very well on Friday, though, so I'm pleased.
