I am so going to miss you all this year.
For all those contemplating on going do it !!!!!
I have gone the last three years and it changed my life, I would be going again this year but my son is getting married. :)
Love you deb c your the best.

Duff Glass 2014-01-28 8:20pm

Glass Stock is the best!
 
Hi All,

Seriously.... For all those people who want to play with glass. Have fun in a stress-free, friendly environment. This is where you want to go! They have both boro and soft glass classes. I've gone the last two years and it was the highlight of my year both times. It's addictive...

You won't regret it :)

I'm shy and still fit in and made some great friends!

Christina

Nitadee 2014-01-29 6:29pm

WOOT WOOT!!! Cannot wait for August to get here!
Deb Tarry, I am so sorry you won't be there this year. :( But you DO have a wonderful reason not to be. Congrats to the newlyweds and to you for getting a new daughter!
:love::love:

:waving:,
Yeah!!!

I'm so excited to be coming back to GSWest. I had such a great time last year and met so many fun people.

See ya there!

Lisa

LisaSt.Martin 2014-03-11 2:46pm

Deb asked me to remind everyone that submissions for teaching are due by March 15th. Please follow the instructions for submitting on the Glass Stock website.

Deb is moving and her computer is not set-up yet…so if you are hoping to get in touch with her…it's not gonna happen for awhile.

Send her happy new home wishes…

Lisa

Birdsonawire 2014-03-15 8:22pm

Yay! I am so glad your coming back Lisa!
I had such fun last year.
I would suggest anyone thinking about going should definitely do it.
I can't wait!

Oh, and I am in the same boat as Deb. Just bought a house and moved. Still unpacking 2 weeks later:(
But the good news is, the new house has a glass studio for me! YAY

artsyuno 2014-03-16 1:19pm

Deb T., I'm sad that you won't be there this year. Congrats on the wedding, though!

Lisa, yay! So glad you'll be joining us again. Looking forward to seeing the rest of you, too. :)

Deb C's web guy seems to be hard at work. He's started putting classes up on the new website. There's some cool-looking stuff going up.

brendah 2014-03-16 10:00pm

wow, there are so many "non-torch" classes I want to take, I don't think there's going to be room left for any of the regular torch classes in my wish schedule.
Dawn, I really really love your fused village houses, I'm so glad you'll be teaching that this year, woo hoo!!
It's going to be so hard to choose (sigh).

houptdavid 2014-03-18 2:20pm

AAACCCCKKKKKK I guess I better go practice with soft glass again! :lol:

artsyuno 2014-03-18 3:37pm

:-o

deb c 2014-03-18 8:27pm

Hey from I'll never get it all done-ville! We are finally settling in! 27 day escrow on my house, moved in 9 days (1000 lbs of glass, rods, sheets, etc, full stained glass, fusing and lampworking studio plus 4 people's stuff!), did my taxes, previewed, selected and tweaked over 90 classes for GS East and West, made samples for Vegas class and booth fish, shells plus unpacking so I can pack again plus last 6 weeks doing my 15 auctions a week too! Plus went through 400 floppy discs (ugh but found some great pics and some interesting stuff!), went through 2000 Magic (MTG) cards, found one worth $600 (it is mint) and others for total in 8 cards of over $2K (that was a nice bonus!) Splurged on some new furniture, new bed (ahhh, Bed in a Box beds ROCK!) and managed to get a few curtains up, woohooo! We will be renting until I find another place to buy in the next year or so. For now a super comfy, BIG 4 br house with a basement to work in, yay!

ALL the classes will be up for East and West by March 25th....if you are staff PLEASE read today's email for proofing and selecting your favorite class before April 2nd!

There are over 40 new classes at West, 30 new at East, lots of new stuff to choose from!

Yep, David, better get fired up sweetie!
Dawn, congrats on your new place and thank you to everyone who jumped in to finally teach this year (David, Nita, Dawn and Carol at East) Ok, maybe I helped a little with the jumps, lol!

BIG hugs all around, I will sure be celebrating in Vegas! Then a couple days in the casino hotel to rest and then off to see my first grandbaby (Zac, he is gorgeous!), daughter and SIL in Pittsburgh for a week. I will be hammering out schedules of classes for GS there and they will be posted by April 15th at the latest!

Yippy skippy! deb ;)

Nitadee 2014-03-20 9:02am

"Yep, David, better get fired up sweetie!

Um....what is this FINALLY TEACH of which you speak Deb? :lol::lol::lol:
I'm totally excited! And yes Ma'am you did "help" a little with the jumps.
And I thank you for that. Now, to see how it goes!!!

I'm so looking forward to this year! The first year, I was SO scared. And I still owe Karen Hardy much thanks, for holding my foot. ;)

The second year, I learned so much more! And made more new friends.
And this year? TEACHING??? Ya gotta be joking, right? :lol:
How many days until GSW? Too many!
Looking forward to meeting new friends, and connecting with friends from past years. :love::love:

houptdavid 2014-03-21 8:20pm

Nitadee 2014-03-22 12:25pm

Nekid wimmen, flowers, seahorses, daisy flowers, oh my! Something tells me David, this year is going to be our "game changing year" :D
:love:

I know!

deb c 2014-03-24 1:16pm

Aw, I am so proud of you all for jumping in! Won't be as bad as first year demo jitters, it will be over fast! Please teachers, don't forget to review your classes at glassstock.com and pick your favorite first class pick before April 2nd!
I am in Vegas a few days early to soak up some of this glorious sun before the show!
I will check in in about a week. Keep those fires bright! Hugs, deb

Nitadee 2014-03-28 11:56am

I know you are having a great time, as well as working. Cannot wait to hear all the great news etc. and see photos of the new Grandbaby! YAYYY!!!

So everyone, how's it going? I'm so excited I can't hardly stand it, and it's ONLY March! Well, okay, almost April ;)

David, what's the count down? :lol:

:love:

deb c 2014-04-01 3:01pm

Vegas baby! What a great time, 75 and sunny....ah! Headed to hold my grand bundle of JOY for a whole week! Bought 3 more Paragon kilns here, got my sweet F130' woohoo! More from me in about 10 days when I get home, 3 weeks gone, will take a few days to recover from all this jetting around!
You were SO right Felicia, this IPad ROCKS, thanx sweetie! Warm, squishy hugs,
Deb. :)

artsyuno 2014-04-01 6:45pm

I'm not giving up my iPad until someone pries it from my cold, dead hands. :) Glad you're having a good time. We expect baby pics from the next part of your vaycay.

deb c 2014-04-07 5:24am

Felicia, I know how you feel and I haven't had mine a year yet, still learning how to use it lol! All my baby pics are too big to post and I could send them to email and then use Picasa but I am trying to figure it out on here....do you have a program you use on your iPad?

I will definitely have pics of us up by weekend, I am taking a few more days off after I get home. This has been an incredible 3 weeks!!! I was scrambling before I left, especially with the house sale, moving and then Vegas, what a blur! This has been the BEST year ever, I am truely blessed!

Off to hold my little Zuzu (Zachary), have to get as much baby time as possible before I fly home tomorrow. At least I will see them again in Oct after GS East, this just may make me move east if they stay out here more than another year!!!!
Warm squishies all around! Deb

artsyuno 2014-04-07 8:35am

I've rarely uploaded photos here from my iPad, but I think I've done it once or twice with the Tapatalk app. Can't wait to see pics of the little guy.
