Get started on December/January's Challenge....“Resolutions & New Beginnings"

“Resolutions & New Beginnings”…………..

It is almost the end of the year and the holidays are here. It is a time to enjoy family, friends and feasting. It is also a time to reflect on the past year and to look forward to the new year ahead bringing with it new ideas, hopes, goals and resolutions.

Our CGGE December challenge theme is “Resolutions & New Beginnings”. With this theme in mind as inspiration, put on your thinking caps and use your artistic and creative talents to design a work that embodies your hopes, goals and wishes for 2009!

The contest begins December 1 and ends promptly at midnight January 15th. Each member may submit one entry only in stained, fused, lampworked or mosaic glass. This entry must be listed for sale in your Etsy shop. All entries are to be posted to the CGGE Challenge Group site on Flickr.

Voting will be open to all Etsy members and all Flickr members. We hope that, by allowing Flickr members to vote, we will draw more members to our CGGE and Etsy shops. The winner of the challenge will be featured on our CGGE Home Page.

November Challenge

The winner of our November Challenge is Stacey with JSGlassart. Congratulations Stacey!
November’s challenge showcased 27 entries from the members of CGGE. Thanks to all of you who entered in the contest. All of the entries were extraordinary examples of the diverse talent found within our group of artists. Several techniques utilizing fused, lampwork and stained glass were evident in this challenge. The winter theme brought out some wonderful ideas using dichroic glass especially. The Creative Glass Guild of Etsy is an amazing group of glass artists sharing their talents and ideas in a friendly and supportive environment and we thank all of you who participate in making CGGE what it is today.
