Beach Trip | Relax. Recharge.

Sometimes you need to take a few days to relax. To recharge. And become less crabby. Which is why I take the occasional mini-vacation to Jacksonville, Florida as part of "Operation Less Crabby Kitty". Over the Memorial Day weekend I traveled further South to visit my best friend, Carol, for a few days. We go to the beach, we play Scrabble, we drink margaritas, we eat fried food and pizza and we laugh. We laugh a lot. 

I always feel better about myself, my life, my work, my relationships and my art after a few days in the sun and a little tequila. I wanted to share a few photos from my time away. Even though I took my DSLR I never took it out of the Pelican case and shot a single frame with it. Sometimes it is fun to just use the camera I have on hand.

Enjoy my photos and don't forget to make time in your life for your own "Operation Less Crabby Kitty". You'll feel much better, I promise!

Etsy Craft Party with Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team | June 6th, 2014

Do you love to create? Got a secret (or maybe not so secret!) stash of craft supplies? Do you often have glitter in your hair? Then you might be interested in coming to the Etsy Craft Party on June 6th. The Etsy Craft Party is an annual event and the Knoxville party is hosted by the Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team {KCHST}. As the Captain of KCHST, I want to personally invite you to this super fun crafty event. Visit this link and RSVP if you would like to join us. It's also a great opportunity to meet other local crafty peeps and find out more about KCHST and what we're all about.

Last year we crafted market bags from t-shirts and donated them to the Market Square Farmers' Market. This year's theme is Recapture, Bring new meaning to your photographs. This year’s theme focuses on transforming photographs into display-worthy works of art using a variety of craft supplies and creative techniques. You can find out what to bring and what to expect in the event invite.








It's going to be a lot of fun and I'd love to see you there. There are only 15 tickets left, so don't wait to RSVP

Market Square Farmers' Market | Shop local, handmade, and fresh!

Spring has sprung!

The temperatures have been heating up, except for some reason today in Knoxville they have dipped down into the 50's, and the arrival of warmer weather means it is time for the Market Square Farmers' Market.

The Market Square Farmers' Market kicked off on the first Saturday of May with beautiful blue skies and a huge crowd. It couldn't have been a more perfect day! The Farmers' Market is an amazing source of fresh produce, meats, prepared foods, flowers, plants, art and hand-crafted goods.

This Saturday the International Biscuit Festival is also downtown so be sure to get to the Farmers' Market early! As always, you are welcome to bring me a biscuit! And be sure to keep your eyes open for the Biscuit Queen! In case you are shopping for a gift for graduation, a wedding or other special occasion, drop by Sassy Glass Studio this Saturday because I won't be back to the Farmers' Market until June 7th.


Take a tour of the Sassy Glass Studio booth at the Market Square Farmers' Market

Sticks. And Wind. And Rain. | Dogwood Arts Festival Market Square Art Fair | April 25 - 27, 2014

Sticks. And wind. And Rain.

Dogwood Arts Festival, Knoxville, Tennessee

The Dogwood Art DeTour this past weekend was a lot of fun and I met some new art lovers who had not been to the glass studio on previous Art DeTours. I worked on a couple of different projects during the Art DeTour so folks could see how I create the fused glass goodness and ask me questions. I love explaining my craft and showing people around the studio. Sometimes the Art DeTour takes place after the Dogwood Art Festival Market Square Art Fair, but this year it was before, so I hope a lot of those folks come by to see me there, and anyone who couldn't make it to the Art DeTour will come by as well.

Here is how I sum up the Dogwood Arts Festival Market Square Art Fair:

"This event has more art than you can shake a stick at and all the food on a stick you can eat."

You can quote me on that if you'd like. It's true though. But of course there is also the wind. And the rain. But you've already heard all about Mother Nature's annual Dogwood Arts Festival temper tantrum here.

Anyway, here is a list of all the artists who will be exhibiting at the Dogwood Arts Festival Market Square Art Fair on April 25th through 27th. Mark you calendar for this free, fun, family-friendly event! There is lots of entertainment as well as food demonstrations and wine tastings.

I'll be sharing some of the fresh fused glass goodness that will be available at the Art Fair over the next week, so be sure to pop over to the Sassy Glass Studio Facebook page and Twitter to see them. Also, if you aren't already subscribed to the newsletter, do that now too. You don't want to miss anything!

I look forward to seeing you at the Dogwood Arts Festival Market Square Art Fair! I'll be located across from Latitude 35, more or less, so I'll be easy to spot.
