Fused Glass Donations

I love creating fused glass, which is why I write my posts and newsletters. It brings me such joy when I sell a piece of my fused glass, because it means someone else loves my glass as much as I do. With the pandemic I’ve continued to create my fused glass and haven’t had any craft shows (albeit I’ve had 3 home shows). Every year I try to donate some of my fused glass to women / children’s causes and health care workers.

On Facebook I saw this post about Mary’s Home/Dream Centers “A Safe Haven for Women and Children”. They needed donations of things to make these apartments into homes for the families. So I thought of functional fused glass that I use daily and that makes me smile. First clearly it’s fused glass night lights. They only needed 6 but I have night lights in all the bathrooms and in my kitchen so I gave them two per apartment. I tried to do a variety of techniques.

The other fused glass type I think is important are my little dishes. They are so useful for jewelry, spoon rest, teabag holder, soap dish, etc. *I ended up giving the turtle to the volunteer and added another one for the donation.

Last but not least are my fused glass flower magnets what a great welcome home gift! BTW a friend of mine lost someone close to her recently and I gave her a flower and magnet as well.

I love making fused glass and donating to such a wonderful cause! Especially during women’s month.

I also donated these fused pendants to a lupus support. The pendants run from $15 to 30 and I included an organza bag and a cord. I also included a business card holder for the organizer.

I hope my fused glass helps these wonderful organizations.

Keeping my kiln warm,

    Karen, I would love to buy one of your soap dishes for our bathroom we just redid. If you have one of your small dishes that would go with light blue and gray that would be great. Let me know details. Thanks!

    • Margie, no problem. Let me look or I can make you a custom one, just email me and we can talk about it.
