I'm coming from Houston, and I am hoping to get up-graded on my flight!!!!! Keep your fingers crossed for me. First class is way better than economy.

Either way I'll be anticipating the fun filled, glass filled, laughter filled, lava making filled, learning experiences.

If I don't have a good time, it's on me.

Mary, yay! I sent my last box Wed, shipped over 150 lbs of supplies...love Flat Rate!

Jeanne, I was just thinking about that Nor-easter too! That was pretty darn cold!! Last year was great....plus I love the fire pit every night! Let's hope it is nice during the sandblasting class, at least the blasting is quick!

See you all in a few days, big hugs!

I've been checking the weather. Looks like 70's and 80's. Sounds perfect to me. I am so excited to be here at east this year, and bonus of getting to visit my sisters and niece too!
I am still on a big high from GSW and so ready to get some glass melting going on!! Only two more days!!!

It started, it started!!! I already met really cool new people. (Working on names but they are from Utah, Texas, Ontario and Rochester NY) I LOVE GSE!!!
Day 2!!!! Connecticut, No. Cal, So. Cal, NY.....
Day 3: Deleware, Washington, Oregon and JERSEY!!!!! I'm sure I missed some places- sorry I have an aging brain.

So much fun. So worth it. Thanks for everything Deb.

I'm home. Tired, sore throat (hopefully not from Julie's germ bead from the challenge) and soggy feet (thanks to the stormy weather). Another great year and another group of new friends/GSE family. Until we meet again....

Deb, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting together such a wonderful experience for me, and I would venture to say everyone who attended GSE!! I enjoyed EVERY minute of it, and will have happy memories of everything I learned and everyone I met, to last me until next year when I get to see you again! Sincerely, Ann W.

Great time everyone. Only hang up, I had to be at my day job Monday Morning, bummer. Next year, I'll say no to coming back on Sunday, or maybe I'll be retired by then and it won't matter.

Deb, thanks so much for everything. My shell made it home, safe and sound. I am so exited that I have a Deb shell! My DH loved it also. And I said NO he cannot "borrow" it for one of his projects.

Wow folks.... Was that fun or what
Thanks everyone for such a great time. I love all the folks at Carlisle - they take such good care of us
Deb - loved it as usual... Esp our escape to the zoo

If you want to learn a lot. Meet great folks and have a wonderful time... Then Glass Stock is the place to be.... East or West.... It's the best

Loved every minute... Exhausted but soooooo happy

Such an awesome time! Thanks so much to the wonderful teachers of the classes - I learned so much in such a great atmosphere. I never knew classes could be so relaxed and fun. Such an enjoyable vibe

And Deb, as usual you were the greatest! All your hard work paid off, because I've never seen such a happier group of people. I can't believe we got 4 days of classes for such a low price. Anyone who can should give one of Deb's Glass Stock a try. You won't regret it!!

Aw, you guys are SO awesome! I had a GREAT time, better every year! Lots of new folks to add to the family! I came home a week ago, had company until yesterday when I succumbed to a crappy cold. All that flying and trainhopping to see family and I picked up something, but great to see everyone!

Will catch up with all of your great comments in a couple days.
Much love to all of you, YOU ALL made this event fantastic!

I had such a great time at GSE! Thanks Deb and Carlisle and all the new people I got to meet!!! I loved seeing the Carlisle factory, and meeting the crew. They are a great bunch! So glad I have a few of their torches too. How often do you get to meet the guys that put your torch together?! Super, super fun!
Thanks!!!!!
and, Yes! start saving now it's worth every penny and then some!!
