This year Mother’s day is May 11th!  That’s correct, it’s right around the corner. So think about Fused Glass for Mother’s Day!

Last year I made a YouTube video with a variety of possible fused glass for Mother’s Day, I just got finished watching it again and I must tell you it’s really good. I love the song it’s as beautiful as the fused glass. Some of the fused glass in the video has sold but most has not and it will give you a great example of what types of fused glass are available.  If you haven’t watched it please do. I’ve also created a youtube video about some of my fused glass night lights and clocks, both of which are perfect for Mother’s Day. Myself I’m sending my mom a beautiful fused glass night light, but I can’t tell you which one.

Additionally,  I have made a myriad of new fused glass for Mother’s Day here is just a snapshot of some possibilities.

If you would like to know more about mother’s day I thought I’d include some facts you don’t know about

According to Wikipedia Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March or May. It complements Father’s Day, a similar celebration honoring fathers.

The celebration of Mother’s Day began in the United States in the early 20th century; it is not related to the many celebrations of mothers and motherhood that have occurred throughout the world over thousands of years.

The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in Grafton, West Virginia. She then began a campaign to make “Mother’s Day” a recognized holiday in the United States. Although she was successful in 1914, she was already disappointed with its commercialization by the 1920s. Jarvis’ holiday was adopted by other countries and it is now celebrated all over the world. In this tradition, each person offers a gift, card, or remembrance toward their mothers, grandmothers, and/ or maternal figure on mother’s day.

Various observances honoring mothers existed in America during the 1870s and the 1880s, but these never had resonance beyond the local level. Jarvis never mentioned Julia Ward Howe’s attempts in the 1870s to establish a “Mother’s Day for Peace”, nor any connection to the Protestant school celebrations that included “Children’s Day” amongst others. Neither did she mention the traditional festival of Mothering Sunday, but always said that the creation was hers alone. For more information on previous attempts, see the “United States” section in this article.

In most countries, Mother’s Day is a recent observance derived from the holiday as it has evolved in the United States. As adopted by other countries and cultures, the holiday has different meanings, is associated with different events (religious, historical or legendary), and is celebrated on different dates.

In some cases, countries already had existing celebrations honoring motherhood, and their celebrations then adopted several external characteristics from the US holiday, such as giving carnations and other presents to one’s mother.

The extent of the celebrations varies greatly. In some countries, it is potentially offensive to one’s mother not to mark Mother’s Day. In others, it is a little-known festival celebrated mainly by immigrants, or covered by the media as a taste of foreign culture.[citation

Mother’s Day in the United States is an annual holiday celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day recognizes mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds in general, as well the positive contributions that they make to society. Although many Mother’s Day celebrations world-wide have quite different origins and traditions, most have now been influenced by the more recent American tradition established by Anna Jarvis, who celebrated it for the first time in 1907, then campaigned to make it an official holiday. Previous attempts at establishing Mother’s Day in the United States sought to promote peace by means of honoring mothers who had lost or were at risk of losing their sons to war.

Don’t forget to wish you Mom Happy Mother’s day, hearing from your children means more than any thing else no matter what their age.

So Happy Mother’s Day to my Momma!

Keeping my kiln warm,

Karen
