Win FREE Glass Prizes! FUN Scavenger Hunt!

On Oct. 24, Creative Glass Guild of Etsy (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 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!!!

♥A special “Thanks” to pingwen and the IN street team for providing the basic contest idea and sharing it with us, and many thanks to our talented glass artisans who donated the gorgeous prizes: dyzart, GloriaLynnGlass, and GetGlassy! ♥

I "heart" Squidglass! Look at this glass pendant!

I LOVE Etsy, and this seller, is a great contributor to the Etsy community! Here's Why!

Hi all! Just a quick shop review of one of my favorite glass buddies! Su of Squidglass made my day when I received one of her stunning and original Millefiori garden glass pendants, like the one seen to the left! Squidglass is so charming and sweet, my pendant arrived quickly and well packaged in a super cool little tin, along with a "care" card which included instructions on how to care for my piece! Super cool, indeed! The first day I wore my new piece, I had 2 different people compliment me on it. I was able to give them the website of Su, Squidglass AND introduce them to Etsy at the same time. It's so fun to talk about Etsy and the great finds there/here!
My actual pendant is below, I'm 7 months pregnant so I don't look too hot, but check out that belly! Hehehhe. A little baggy eyes, and swollen face, but otherwise happy and healthy with huge knockers, that my new fused glass pendant accentuates! hahah.

The ever growing 7 month belly, yikes, my 18 month daughter and 2 dogs in the background!
Thank you so much Su! If you want to read a super cool article written by Su on how she finds inspiration, please check out this link:
