I love finding new fun crafty things to do. To make something with your hands is so rewarding too. Just like when you were a kid, and you came home from school with your latest art piece.

Glass art and glass blowing takes place right here in Maine, and a few specialty shops. And, it's so cool to watch how it's done! This video is from a shop in Bar Harbor, Maine called The Christmas Spirit Shop.

And, if you are interested in learning how to make blown glass, you can take classes! Casco Bay Glassworks in Woolwich, Maine offers blown glass classes. Here is an example of a blown glass class. Now THIS is cool!
