My First Etsy Treasury

It was sooooooo much fun picking the treasury. I think I'm hooked!

So many great artist to choose from on Etsy and amazing how many belong to CGGE. I love being able to help advertise the group.

But notice the theme - the urge to get back to the Caribbean is getting stronger every day. We're planning for October, not sure I can wait that long!

Fish you say.....
I'm a Pieces I love fish. I really love swimming with the fish - literally! We try to make it to the Caribbean to snorkel at least once a year. We head to beautiful St.Thomas most of the time. Take a look at It is a site I build for friends of ours in St. Thomas. If your ever heading down that way his day packages are the best. They are so friendly and will take you to all the best places!

These are some of the pics we've taken underwater.

Thats me feeding the babies.

And this guy is our yearly friend. He was either hit by a boat or shark took a bite out of him. He's missing his back leg. But friendly as can be. He'll swim with you and doesn't shy away when you get close. And when he's in the mood he'll even let you touch him.

On the day we head home we try to get one last snorkel in and thats when we found this beautiful spotted ray. Always seems like the seas save the best for last just to keep us coming back for more.

Lately I've been inspired by the desire to head back to the ocean. So here's a few little fishies I've created in glass. I'll be posting these up on Etsy soon.

Its been a busy time. Moved into a new house, been painting and remodeling, put my glass studio back together. Started seeing the chiropractor and joined CGGE - Creative Glass Guild of Etsy. New street team and jumped in with both feet. Built our website, threw in a forum, set up email and been having a blast getting to know everyone.

Now I need to get back into doing glass.
This is a piece I had started before our move but just finished this week.

The coaster and box set are made from glue chip glass base, dried flowers ( I did myself), and clear glass on top, soldered to seal it all in.

Next project is going to be fish... lots of fish!

Now I'm working on taking better photos. I've got all the equipment with my love being an armature photographer. He definitely loves his toys but he lets me indulge in my toys too. I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new torch. Lampworking here I come. Next will be the kiln.
