Wow! It's hard to believe that it's November already (except for the snow that we had last week)!

Here is our new calendar that includes some important information for December, as well. Just click on the calendar to make it larger, especially if you want to print it out.

Do you have all your holiday glass projects planned?

Not only is gift-giving season quickly approaching, but the eating season is officially upon us now, too. Do you have enough serving pieces for your holiday entertaining?

Plan to include some glass fusing in your holiday plans! It's a fun way to brighten your home and table with all kinds of beautiful glassware - from the table to the windows and walls!

Do you have out-of-town guests visiting Laramie? Think about bringing them by to join in on the fun of making treasures to take home with them as souvenirs of their visit. It only takes a few hours to create something wonderful that they'll remember for years to come!

More days available for Open Studio! The next several weeks are going to be busy, busy, busy, so I have scheduled a number of dates that I will be available if you need time to work on your projects. There is no time indicated on the calendar for those dates.

You must call at least one day in advance to schedule a time with me to work in the studio for these special dates.

I have also scheduled "regular" open studio times from 5:30 - 9 PM on Nov. 6, 11 and Dec. 2. There is an additional daytime open studio scheduled on Friday, Nov. 6 from 1-4 PM. Remember that you must also call at least one day ahead to make sure I know you are planning to come!

ARTS & CRAFTS SHOWS COMING UP! If you don't have time to get away to create your own projects, please feel free to stop by any of the numerous shows I have coming up in November and December - nearly every Saturday for the next several weeks, with the exception of Thanksgiving weekend. But, there is something FUN planned for that Saturday - with details below.

TREE HUNTING WITH MARTIN'S GLASS HOUSE! You are invited to join us on our annual trek to the forest to get our Christmas tree on Saturday, November 28th. Phil will be hauling his trailer to bring back everyone's trees. A number of people are already planning to join us. We hope you will, too!

We'll start at our house at 7 AM with breakfast (waffles, egg dish, ham, fruit, juice - and COFFEE). At 8 AM we will head up to the forest (our probably "not-so-secret" tree-finding spot) to look for trees. Be sure to bring your tree permit that you must purchase beforehand at the Forest Service! We will car pool so that we don't need too many cars all going to the same place, and should hopefully all have our trees and be back on the road home around 11 AM or before.

So, BUSY AS USUAL! Please come join us! See you soon!
