September Challenge

September already, and children are going back to school. The end of the summer holidays are bringing a return to routine.

What does this period of time mean to you? Stocking up on new stationery? New school clothes? A change of diet, from salads to stews? A return to the school run?

Whatever you associate with this time of year can provide inspiration for your art. Get your thinking caps on and create some wonderful glasswork for this month's CGGE challenge – “School Days”.

The contest begins September 1st and ends promptly at 11:59 PM EST on September 25th.
Each member may submit one entry only in stained, fused, lampworked or mosaic glass.
The entry must be listed 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 the winner of the challenge will be featured on our CGGE Home Page.

Good luck to all of you who enter the challenge!

This was a great challenge!
