Hi and welcome!! After reading many posts in the addictive forums at etsy, I have finally taken the plunge and started my blog! Let me first start by introducing myself.
My name is Carey. I live in Maryland and by day am an ultrasound tech. At night I completely neglect my family and spend all my time making glass beads. Lampwork beads are handmade glass beads that are created in the flame. I discovered this art about 2 1/2 years ago and have become completely obsessed!
I hope to share my beads here (the good ones and the bad ones) and also I hope to promote other artists from etsy.
Etsy is a wonderful site I discovered a few months ago that is LOADED with amazing artists and crafters! It's a must see...but let me warn you...it's EXTREMELY addictive! You can find just about anything there and the awesome, mind blowing part is that almost everything on there (except for vintage stuff which is also really cool and supplies which frankly are neccessary) is HANDMADE! There are some really talented people in this world and its fun that I can find many of them in one spot. So grab a cup of coffee (or 2) and go check them out!
Oh...and also be sure to check out my etsy shop too!!!
If you already know about etsy (or maybe you even have your own etsy shop) add a comment!!! I want this blog to be a place to promote all you talented people!!
