Will that Be Paper, Plastic, Canvas...Treasury

I love Etsy Treasuries! I was convoed last night that my Blue Fused Glass Striped Plate was in an Etsy Treasury, Will that Be Paper, Plastic, Canvas, etc. There's some great things in that treasury.  Why not check it out and maybe you'll find something you just can't live without.  Or you may find a great gift for yourself or someone else. 
If you're looking for some great Glass Kreationz for your Home or Garden, you can check out my Blue Fused Glass Striped Plate in the treasury or other glass in my shop, KayzKreationz.  Enjoy!

Liquor Bottle Fan/Light Pulls-Cute gifts

I love these little liquor bottle fan/light pulls. It's hard to find miniature liquor bottles that are glass though. But I finally found some while we were in South Texas.  And after "having" to drink the liquor that was in them, I was able to wash the bottles, soak the labels off and fire them in my kiln with a piece of brass ball chain in them to make the fan/light pulls. After they're fired, I have to put the labels back on them.  That is sometimes difficult to do and make them look good. But I think these turned out pretty good.  There's 3 different types of Tequila bottles and a Brandy bottle.  So if you're looking for something unique for your own home or for a unique gift, these are just the ticket.
If you're looking for something for your Home or Garden, I also make Stained Glass, Mosaic and other Fused Glass Kreationz for your Home and Garden, that are listed in my Etsy shop, KayzKreationz.  Be sure to check it out.

WooHoo! 200 Followers-Giveaway between 250-300 followers

Wow! When I checked in on my blog tonight, I realized I had finally hit 200 followers! I did a little happy dance.  I've been trying to get to 200 followers for quite a while.  I love blogging about my Stained Glass, Mosaics and Fused Glass Kreationz for Home and Garden.  Plus I really like blogging about our small Texas ranch and the wildlife management we do.  I was just waiting to get to 200 followers so I could announce that somewhere between 250 and 300 followers I'm going to do a Glass or Bead giveaway.  So if you want your chance to win either a glass piece or a beaded piece, just keep following my blog and checking in.  I'd especially like it if you leave a comment on any post you really enjoy.
Meanwhile, you can check out some of my Glass Kreationz for your Home or Garden in my shop, KayzKreationz on Etsy or KayzKreationz on Artfire.  You may find something you can't live without right now.  Here's a couple of pics of some other glass I've gotten done and just need to list.  Enjoy.

If you're interested in either one of these before I get them listed, leave me a comment with a way to contact you and I can let you know price and shipping.  They'd love to find a new home.  The first is a lovely little Fused Glass windchime on a piece of driftwood from our ranch.  And the second is a small Purple Fused Glass vase/tealight candle holder.

In a thread in the forums on Etsy tonight, someone explained that you could go to "Treasury" and put your name in the search box to see if you'd been listed in any Treasuries.  Since I hadn't heard that I'd been put in any, I decided to search.  And I was tickled to see that in the last few weeks my glass had been put in 2 different treasuries! Yay! The first is for the "Handmade Artist Forum Twitter Ring".  This is a team I belong to, and we've formed a twitter ring to tweet about other Handmade Artist's shops and such.  The curator of this treasury put my Stained Glass Mosaic Birdhouse feeder in this one.  I love making Glass Kreationz for Home and Garden, so this is one of my favorite items.  If you're looking for something for a friend or family member that loves gardening and feeding the birds, this is just the ticket for you.
The second Treasury is "Poinsettia" and the curator put my Stained Glass Poinsettia panel in it.  If you love Poinsettia's, the color red, or Stained Glass, this panel is for you.  It would look great adorning your wall or window.
If you're looking for something else for your Home or Garden, be sure to check out my shop, KayzKreationz.  I also do some beading and wire work and have some jewelry, pendants listed.  Thanks again to those that included my glass in their treasuries.
