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.

The sale will go through February 16th, 2015 to give you time to decide and see the new items to be listed very soon, oh and, for Valentine's Day gift giving! Use coupon code MYBIRTHDAY during checkout to receive the discount. But don't wait too long if you have your eye on something...

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.

Sassy Glass Studio creates one-of-a-kind fused glass art like this folk art design plate


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.

Three Ways to Save on Your Handmade Holiday Shopping


Shop handmade for the holidays and save in Sassy Glass Studio's Etsy shop!

From this past Saturday to this coming Sunday I am involved from morning to night with an amazing event that kicks off the holiday season in Knoxville, Tennessee. Fantasy of Trees is an annual celebration to benefit East Tennessee Children's Hospital that features hundred of decorated trees (most of which are available for sale and delivered to you after the event), a gingerbread house village, children's activities and even a carousel! I am honored to be one of the co-chairs of this event and I love being a part of it, but it does take me away from the every day operation of my fused glass business during one of the busiest times of the year.


It is because of this that I am offering three different opportunities to save by shopping on-line in the Sassy Glass Studio Etsy shop for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. I will be back at the Market Square Holiday Market on December 6, 13 and 20 as well as the Ijams Handmade Holiday Marketplace on December 7 for those of you who love to shop with me in person. 

A word to the on-line shoppers...I have a lot of new items, specifically pendants and coasters featuring new Fusography designs (see below), that have not made their way into the shop yet. I apologize for them not being available as part of the sale, but they will be available very soon! And don't forget that you can custom order fused glass goodness with your own photos or graphic designs too! Check out this post for five creative ways you can share your Instagram photos.



Here is how you can save:

Shop the Sassy Glass Studio Etsy shop and save 20% off your order each time you shop with these coupon codes!


Black Friday, November 28th : BLACKFRIDAY

Small Business Saturday, November 29th : SMALLBIZSAT2014
Cyber Monday, November 30th : CYBERMONDAY2014

The coupon code is only good for purchases made on the date shown above. TN sales tax will be added to orders shipped in TN.
