FaceBook Give Away!

Hey its December 1 today.  December – the last month of 2019.  What a whirlwind.  I love December mostly because it involves a lot of chocolate and cookies.  Why do we only bake in December?
So being its December 1 – you have 24 days to get those thoughtful gifts for the people you care about or feel obligated – I kid.  Kind of.
Maybe I can help? TLG has some classic Tidal Balls with the cute lil story that can hang inside or out.  JELLY FISH! Everyone loves the Jelly Fish – there is still a handful of those left.  Some beautiful silver jewellery made by Vicki.  We have gifts from $5. and up that are thoughtful, unique, and locally made!

It’s Give away time – super easy to be entered into the draw all you have to do is LIKE the Tideline.Org Fan Page on the FaceBook.  Comment & Tag a friend on the video of the Tidal Ball post.  Share the Video to your page! That’s it, that simple, that easy.  When will you get the message you won? December 15! 

Shop local, make a difference in a small business life.  We work hard.
Grab that hot drink, walk the Shoppers Row, admire the decorations and let the Wintery Christmas Spirit in… Merry December 1.  Love you all!

Handmade Rule

I love buying handmade – I love the atmosphere of markets and shows.  The talent always amazes me, and speaking with the maker is always rewarding.  Because a maker is passionate about their product whereas at the big box store the “kid” at their evenings & weekends job doesn’t care about the product on the shelf… and why should they? Thats the CEO’s job right?
I may have already told you but my family has implemented the “You have to make your gifts” umm ok really what am I going to make? And you’re probably thinking well duh you’re a glassblower blow the gal a ball and she will be happy.  Yea, no.  My mom takes what she wants usually when I am not looking. And my dad loves my tumblers – he takes the big ones that hold the most chocolate milk so thats out too.  And my brothers – they smile that polite smile they have to when my parents are looking and say thanks when I give them a paper weight or something.  So what will I make them? I am open to your suggestions and I have no integrity when it comes to this sort of thing so Ill probably cheat a little bit!

TLG Studio is open daily 10-4 for your shopping needs and we are pretty flexible if there is a time you’d rather – its the “be simple” business mantra… why make things difficult? Just give us a heads up.
And open 24 hrs a day is our Etsy shop!

We also have a good representation at the Raven Song Gallery AND at the French Creek Collective on Shoppers Row downtown CAMPBELL RIVER as well as the Artisans Studio on Commercial St. in Nanaimo.  

Monday Funday!

A few things:

  1. The sun is shining and that always makes for a great start to a day, a Monday, and a week! So yay for warm sun!
  2. The Studio is open today 10am – 4pm.  We’d love to see you.  Lots to choose from for Christmas tree ornaments like Angels, Paws, Trees… And some pretty unique jewellery pieces and glass pieces that make for cool gifts!
  3. My family has come up with a “Handmade Gifts” this year… meaning we have to make our gifts to each other *groan*.  What will I make…. needless to say Emma is being turned on today and the glass furnace should be up to temperature by Friday.
  4. Some available appointments for Memorial Orbs… and by some I mean limited this is a unplanned & short notice for all parties.  I do apologize but I am excited to get back into the heat.
  5. Custom Jelly Fish – you wanted Purple? Email me.  You wanted Blue with red… email me. You wanted Yellow with purple (ew but ok) email me.  I will do some custom but this will require a deposit.
  6. The Johnson pack: Lily 6 yrs old, Gary 1.5 yrs old, Pearl & Karen 4 months

    Vicki added to the pack yesterday so today I will be spending my beautiful Monday getting my fill of sweet puppy kisses from Karen & Pearl.

OPEN 10-4pm!

We are here, 10 – 4pm open and ready to meet, greet, chat and so on with you.  If you are looking for handmade, & local then come see us.  We have some beautiful pieces on display from jewellery, to glass for the tree and gift ideas that are all made on site!

Today we will be working on our jewellery collection – I will give you a hint its with leather! Ha! And you were thinking it was glass… silly!

Getting’ hip with the times

Do you know how much effort and work it takes to photograph, upload & add descriptions to the things we make?! Yea, me neither – but Vicki does! She has been working on our Etsy Shop and it looks amazing!
What did I do? Well besides literally sweating over the product – I uploaded a link to this very website for everyones ease! You’re welcome!
Seriously though, we have our Etsy Shop linked to our website to make it easier for everyone to purchase our original pieces of art from Silver Jewellery to Stained Glass to Blown glass… if we make it our goal is to get it listed! Except Jelly Fish – I kid.
We have had 100% success with our shipping (Thank you again to Ms Vicki for saving all those random boxes and packing materials).  And only positive reviews thus far with the products received too – so we are feeling pretty good about this time consuming adventure.  We accept PayPal & ETransfer for online purchases, and are committed to shipping the product out as soon as possible.  (Again – thank you Vicki)
