    Happy holidays, TMP! We have a fun giveaway for you to enter brought to you by aspenglass!

    Jim has been a member here for many years and we all love his Ti-pens. I have a Ti-pen in my purse made by Jim that I抳e had for over 10 years! You can check out more about Jim and his pens at

    Jim has made a generous donation to our community of 13 Ti-pens, one for every year we抳e been gathering to talk about glass. Not only that, but for every pen he抯 donating he抯 also donating $10! What a guy. Give it up for Jim!!

    We've designed this game so glassblowers are the ones entering as you are the ones who will use the pens. Here is how to enter!

    To win one of the lucky 13 Ti-pens:
    • Take a photo of your torch with a holiday greeting written next to it. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa - whatever floats your boat!
    • Post your photo in this thread.
    • All the entries will be given a number and randomized to pick 13 winners.
    • Entries must be in no later than midnight on Monday the 16th.
    • 13 winners will be chosen and announced on Tuesday the 17th.

    Thank you, Jim, for the awesome game and support of TMP! You rock!!

    Hey guys, it's our 13th birthday!!

    Put on your party hats and join in on the upcoming festivities! If you've ever been to one of our online birthday parties, you know how much fun they are! It's been awhile since I've been able to do one. If you have me on facebook, you know I just moved across I'll do the best I can with the games and contests, and please excuse my half assed banner I was using gimp, which I'm cleary gimp in!

    If you have the time and energy to run a birthday contest/game/auction/etc hit me up and let me know! If you want to be involved in any other way, let me know and we'll work it in.

    Stay tuned for more tomorrow! The month of June will be fun around here.

    Happy 13th birthday, Melting Pot!! I love you guys!!
