Happy Holidays from MCD!

We had a fabulous overnight holiday party with the whole crew and their significant others at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA. The night included everyone making some of their own glass art, a delicious dinner, a gingerbread house design competition, and more! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed getting into the holiday spirit! Check out photos from this fun event:2160_001
