ISGB Gathering Part 4

Here is the last post for the Gathering.
The newest series I did right before the Gathering.

Fun idea for all the wine corks we have that I saw in a window display in Corning.

ISGB Gathering part 2

On Wednesday I took the Corning Museum of Glass tour, what an incredible place. We were lucky to have docents show us around since I am pretty sure there is no way we could have seen the whole thing in the time we had.  Here are some pics of the things that resonated with me and a link to their website.

ISGB Gathering part 1

So I have gotten home from my trip to Rochester NY for the ISGB Gathering and have finally had time for my brain to process the whole adventure.
The trip started with me arriving early to Rochester and getting familiar with my surroundings. Whenever I visit a new place, I love to get out and see what it has to offer. On my walking trip I saw the Genesee River, Kodak Eastman corporate building, lots of historical buildings and some really cool street art.
