Celebrate My Birthday with 25% Off in Sassy Glass Studio Etsy Shop!

Happy birthday to me! And to you too!

I thought about offering a discount equal to my age, but I didn't want to give away my fused glass goodness! Join me in celebrating my birthday month with a 25% discount off your purchase of $20 or more in the Sassy Glass Studio Etsy shop. This time of year, I typically take a little time away from creating in the glass studio and focus on my other creative entrepreneurial endeavors and get all of my fused glass goodness listed in the shop. I've photographed and listed a good bit of it, but there is more to come! Lots of swizzle sticks, coasters, and business card holders...not to mention plates and more pendants.

Time to Focus

Sassy Glass Studio is focusing on a set of fused glass styles for 2015

Over the last 7+ years I have created lots of different styles of fused glass goodness at Sassy Glass Studio and I've finally decided to focus on five different styles starting this year. These styles may change in the future, but I am going to concentrate on these designs for the year. As many of you may know I recently (re)launched Pink Spark Creative, my mentoring and consulting business for creative entrepreneurs, and I want to grow it as well as continue to expand my photography business, ALM Photo. It's time to focus on everything I am doing and concentrate on the things that are most important to me and my clients.

I've been documenting, OK... keeping track of in my head, the items that have been selling best and the ones I love creating the most and came up with the list of five styles. Some of the styles will have a collection of pieces in them, which I am also listing. Please know that if you are a fan of Sassy Glass Studio's work and you have seen pieces in styles that you love that are not on this list, I will still create them. This list is just an attempt to keep me focused and we'll see how that works out!
  1. Fusography
    1. Jewelry- rings, pendants, and earrings
    2. Cocktail theme - swizzle sticks & coasters
    3. Coasters - flowers, quotes, animals & pretty much anything you love
    4. Dry erase boards - see above
    5. Decor collections - sets of 4 6-inch plates, 12 inch platters and 8 inch plates, as well as large trays and coasters featuring coordinating patterns to make almost any decor.
  2. Folk Art - this is the style shown below the list. It's so much fun and the color combinations are endless!
  3. Geometric - lots of geometric shapes in all the colors of the rainbow!
  4. Puddles (new) - this is a new technique I will be working on that features layers of color and it is perfect for jewelry as well as to incorporate into larger pieces.
  5. Suncatchers - from small to large pieces, there will be something for everyone to beautify their favorite window or open space.

I'll continue to take custom orders for and produce pieces that aren't on this list, just ask! I'll also be focusing my sales efforts on my Etsy shop and scaling back the number of Saturdays I participate in the Market Square Farmers' Market. One thing I have learned is that most people interested in taking a fused glass class would prefer to take a class on Saturday and that's been a challenge with me at the MFSM nearly every weekend. So, there will be more opportunities for you to take a glass class in 2015! I'll be offering classes for 2015 beginning in March, but now is the time to book in order to secure your date.

Psst...Instagram is where you will find the freshest fused glass goodness! And don't forget to check the blog for new posts! And be sure to visit Pinterest to see what is inspiring me.
One last thing...

Some of you may still have some holiday shopping to do and we want you to know we can help you out! This is just a quick note to remind you of our shopping and shipping deadlines.
December 15 is the last date for Knoxville area custom orders (excluding Fusography) that will be picked up.
