Trick or treat!Announcing the CGGE's Halloween Candy Corn Hunt and SALE!
On Oct. 24, CGGE members launch a special scavenger hunt with gorgeous glass prizes. And member shops will be holding special sales as well!
Take a good look at Ms. Candy Corny, at left. She is the clue that will lead you to the prizes! In the spirit of Halloween, participating members will hide a picture of Candy Corny in one of their listings. Your trick? Search our shops and find her, to qualify for a shiny treat. One winner will receive a stunning silver leaves goddess pendant donated by dyzart. Another winner will receive a gorgeous dichroic fused glass pendant donated by GloriaLynnGlass AND a third winner will win a lovely seasonal stained glass pumpkin piece donated by GetGlassy. And while you are searching our shops for the Candy Cornys, you'll notice fabulous sales which may include set percentages off, BOGOs, free shipping, and more. See each shop's announcement for its special SALE!

Here’s how to play!
Contest runs October 24-31
To play, you must be an Etsy member. It’s EASY, sign up here if you are not a member already:
Search each participating shop listed below to find a hidden Candy Corny image. Each participating shop has one Candy Corny hidden somewhere. When you find one, make a note of the shop name, and the item number shown in the address window of that item. For example, you find a Candy Corny here: Jot down "creationsinglass 285136" (shop name and item number). Remember she may be hiding ANYWHERE in a shop. Simple!
When you've found all of the Candy Cornys, send a convo to Kris & Peggy at creationsinglass, with all your answers.
The contest will run for one week, Oct, 24-31. At midnight Oct. 31, our CGGE judges will check all of the entries for correct Candy Corny sightings. Winners are the entries with the most correct sightings. In the likely event of a tie, the three winners will be drawn at random from all the correct entries. The lucky, clever winners will be notified via convos on Nov. 1, and their names will be published before the cheering throngs on our website and in the Etsy forums.
CGGE members are not allowed to participate, but will join in, chat and cheer contestants on in the thread while you are searching for the Candy Corny!
Participating shops:

Have fun and good luck!!!

Rainy Day

I love rainy days. I love to cook and clean on rainy days. Tonight we are having tomato soup and tuna salad sandwiches on toasted bread. Great rainy day meal! I might even get ambitious and make a dessert!
We are all getting flu shots this week. Some of us are not excited. It protects are babies though so it must be done.

I entered the Magless Exchange again. What can I say… I’m a glutton for punishment.
I’m number 43 this year. I already have a few ideas. Very late due date so I have PLENTY of time.

There is still time to sign up for the CGGE newsletter and be eligible to win the nightlight I’ve made. Go to to enter.

Happy Monday!

We visited the apple orchard on Sunday. It was a beautiful day and the kids had so much fun! Jake was excited to see all of the farm animals and loved playing in the hay.
He even braved the haunted house! Johnna was sort of just in awe of all the people and people and activity. The highlight was the tractor train the pulled us through the orchard and pumpkin patch. We bought apples, fudge, donuts and a caramel apple. It was an awesome day.
Show on Saturday! So much to do!
Hope this is better than the last one.
