Featured Artist: DLC Glass

Hi Denise! Thanks for joining us this week! Tell us about yourself.
My name is Denise Clenney. I am the owner of DLC glass and I live in Marshall, Michigan. I have a husband who's name is Mike, and two grown boys, Kiel and Tanner that are both married to some wonderful women and I am a proud grammy to two little grand-babies, Marley 3, and Oliver 6 weeks! I also have a very sweet dog named Sully.

When did you start crafting? 
I was born creating things.

Have you experienced any major accomplishments or recognition? 
I currently have my work for sale in a few stores in Michigan as well as Oklahoma. I also have been published in a few advertisements and mailings.

Have you ever experienced a craft disaster? What happened?
I have had many many disasters! One of the disasters was I filled my kiln up (a very large kiln) with some almost completed work and then set the kiln completely wrong! I wanted to do a slumping and instead did a full fuse! Ruining everything in the kiln.

Where can we find you? Are you on social media?

How important is marketing for your business?
Marketing is very important to me. I am always learning how to improve on this. Of course I have TheCraftstar to help me with any questions and they are amazing help, I am on Facebook, I have word of mouth, pass out a lot of business cards, which gets easier the more I do it and how now started on Twitter too!

What is your favorite item from your own shop, with link? 

What are your 3 favorite items from other shops on The CraftStar, with links?
My favorite items are from Island Girl Expressions, Wide Eye Dyes, and Quilts by Elsie.
