I started etching glassware in the late 1990's as a hobby. This quickly turned into a passion. I went from the cheap etching cream to using a high powered sandblasting and engraving equipment. My first craft show was on a whim. Well, I was hooked. I so enjoyed the creative environment and talking to my customers.
In 2005, I left my corporate life (mostly in computer networking) to stay at home with my children. I love being a Mom and I love getting to run my own business which gives me a wonderful creative outlet. The people that I work with at the festivals are wonderful and I have the best customers. Many of those customers come by to see me at each show and have become friends. Between all of you and my wonderful family, I feel very blessed.-Amy Schulz
