First of all, thank you to ALL of my readers & friends who've supported me with my efforts on Glitter In The Grey over the past year. It was exactly 9 months ago that I was thrilled to have hit 10K page views on my fledgling blog & celebrated with my first giveaway here. I knew it was a small milestone, but one worth celebrating. Well today I hit 100K page views (!!!!!!!). I can't even believe it, so thanks for reading, staying, sharing, shopping...all of it! Thanks for helping make this so much fun for me to do every day! And now on to the why snowflakes are soooo haute.
The winter seems sometimes to never end...but if we had snowflakes like these to look at each day, who would mind?! My girlfriend Lani has been creating these amazing hand made pieces of art for years, and besides teaching fused-glass art classes, she's also in the running for a national art award for her beautiful work.
These WoCo snowflakes are stunning on a Christmas tree, hanging in a window...I love the idea of creating different ways to display these winter after winter. You can find tons of designs in her etsy shop, and you can enter to win one here this week!An industrial designer by trade, Lani has worked on award-winning product development design teams throughout her career. I love that this business grew from her need to create school staff appreciation gifts. Always thinking of others!
