I'm a bit late in posting this to my blog. Been busy (obsessed with really) sewing doll clothes for Christmas presents. Offering a whopping 50% off in my esty shop for at least a few more days. You'll get a great deal on American handmade glass art either as a gift or for your own jewelry designs. Make sure you use the coupon code "CYBERMONDAY" during checkout to apply the discount. My shop is here, http://www.etsy.com/shop/giapet
Also should mention the sign-up for the newsletter is broken at the moment. Didn't realize it till I tried to use my mailing list the other night. They made some changes in the software and it won't work till I work on re-configuring it.

It's time for a hot sale! I've been so busy with warm weather projects that I haven't been at my torch as often as I'd like so to boost some sales I'm doing the biggest discount ever!

That's about it for now. Worked a night shift last night and going kayaking with my glass buds in a few hours, I really need to catch a nap.

This ebay auction features a collection of beads made by the Fire Divas team I belong to. We also made a duplicate set that has been set directly to the Beads of Courage Program to be distributed to the kids.
The proceeds of this auction will be donated too so we're all hoping that it gets many bids. Most of these beads can used as focals in designs. Please click on the picture and take a look. The winner will also have the option to donate the beads to the kids in the program and we'll even mail them for the winner if they choose that option. Great opportunity to "Pay it forward!"

Beads of Courage provides Arts-in-Medicine for children with serious illness.
This is a picture of some of the beads I've been making for the Beads of Courage program. This wonderful program was started by nurse Jean Baruch in 2005 and has spread to 60 hospitals.
I've linked the picture to their about page so you can read more about what they do for the kids and families who are going through so much. They even have a Beads in Space program where beads are selected to ride the space shuttle and then return to earth and the BOC. How cool is that!
Many artists also donate their work for auctions and web sales with the money going directly to this cause. The artist site can be found here http://www.artistsgive.com/
The Fire Divas, an Etsy Team I belong to is having a sale for the next week. There are 16 of us participating with varying discounts and coupon codes to apply them. You can read more about it and see the list of shops on the Fire Divas Blog.
Gotta run and get ready for work. Next up here is another freebie drawing as soon I make a piece for it. Get on the mailing list (right hand column) to be entered for a chance to win!
Until then, Think Spring!

Having a 20% Off Sale to say "Thanks" to all of you who have made it possible for me to continue to work with glass all these years. I appreciate you as a customer and will continue to treat both you and your information with the utmost respect.
Now for the sale info. You'll need to use the coupon code 20PERCENTOFF during checkout and the 20% off should be applied to the cart. The code is good in both my Etsy and Artfire shops. The sale runs now through Sunday night, April 3rd. If you do happen to run into issues on either site please contact me and we'll figure it out.
Here's a couple new items from me.
