Bayou Glass Arts I purchased a walnut knife block from Fuzzy a few years ago and simply LOVE it! Quick access, no more drawers for my favorite blades!

Fuzzy says, “I retired and my wife said, “Go out in the shop and do
something.” So I did. That is how FuzzyTheWoodButcher began.”

Fabulous Services


 Photography Session

Bayou Glass Arts: I have been fortunate enough to work with Brittanyy Strictland on several shoots over the years. She’s an artist who is as
impressive to watch while she is capturing images as she is with the finished
product. She is based in Shreveport but travels all over the country to capture
your special moments. One of those rare photographers who “sees” beyond
the lens.

Britt says, “Our goal is to capture the essence of you in every photograph and
video. Your story is unique and deserves to be told in a way that reflects
you!” To learn more about the artist and her work, check out her video on the
link above.

Norwex Counter Cloths

Bayou Glass Arts: If you haven’t tried Norwex products yet, you have just GOT to try them. I have been using this product in my home for the last 2 years and I love it. I no longer buy spray cleaners or paper towels and their body cloths are awesome! 

Norwex is a healthier, safer and sustainable way to clean. This special cleaning system requires little or no chemicals and contain Baclock. Baclock is an antibacterial microfiber. This microfiber cloth is proven to remove 99% of bacteria with just water! Jenna Kamena is our fun and fab Norwex representative.


Lots of Layers Gel Printing Course 

Bayou Glass Arts: Ms.Diana is a wonderful artist whose use of color and
delicate touch has created fabulous work. From illustrating books to fine art,
she is also a teacher at heart. What a great gift idea for the mom who wants to
In this online gel printing course, you will work at your own pace with

different printing sessions with different color schemes using her unique

For DIY'ers

Nature's Pressed Dry Pressed Flowers 

Bayou Glass Arts: These ladies know their stuff! They have been pressing
and marketing dry pressed flowers for years. Great gift idea for the moms
that craft and are into DIY. Bayou Glass Arts has purchased from Natures
Pressed for years and still do.

Small business out of Utah preserving and selling all types of pressed flowers
and foliage to use is all sorts of products from glass jewelry (like ours), to
book marks, scrapbooking and resin.  Check out their link above.



 Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

Bayou Glass Arts: This fab seed company is based out of Mansfield,Missouri. A small town I had the pleasure of growing up in. A small business that began as a hobby in 1998 has become the largest heirloom seed company in the US. My garden today is filled with seeds from Baker’s Creek.
Baker Creek's mission is to provide seeds of a sustainable food supply for
everyone, keeping heirloom varieties alive for future generations. Their
passion is saving, growing and sharing rare seeds! Check out their link above.

 Cool Amazon Stuff

Countertop French Ceramic Butter Dish  

Bayou Glass Arts: I always prefer butter to margarine but am not great about
setting it out to soften beforehand. This throwback to how folks preserved
butter generations ago is the ticket. This is just so cool!
It looks so tasteful on your counter or tabletop. Comes in a large assortment
of colors. Keep your butter fresh and soft for spreading with no refrigeration.



Oven Rack Edge Protector

Bayou Glass Arts: A friend introduced me to these and I love them. You cut
to fit, they slide on easy but stay put. No more burns putting things in or out
of your oven.

Heat resistant silicone oven rack covers will protect the baker against burns
and scars. Inexpensive and easy to attach to your oven racks.

EZ Off Jar Opener

Bayou Glass Arts: One of my favorite finds this last year. Great gift idea for
mom. This jar opener is the best I have ever used and highly recommend. It
truly removes tight lids effortlessly. Low price for such a helpful kitchen tool.
A quick and easy solution to an age-old problem! The EZ Off jar gripper only
requires one hand to twist off the tightest lid, whether it is factory locked,
vacuum sealed, child proof, or just stuck.

Gift her flowers that will last  

Bayou Glass Arts: Most of you who are familiar with BGA know that our
dry pressed flower jewelry has been our staple product over the years, and
still is.  From forget me nots to heather, daisies to four leaf clover. Gift mom
a bouquet of flowers that never fade.

 Handmade Pink Heather Heart Pendant

This pendant is made with real dried heather flowers, dry pressed naturally and encased in glass heart cabochons. No dyes, no chemicals.

Mother Daughter Forget Me Not Jewelry Set

Mother daughter gift idea. Lovely, dry pressed blue forget me nots layered in a glass pendant. Lovely gift idea to remind one to never forget. Special gift for Mother's Day or any special occasion especially just because. These heart pendants are available to purchase individually also.

 Handmade Queen Anne's Lace Necklace 

The lovely delicate pattern of Queen Anne's Lace pressed flower jewelry is a  favorite of many making the PERFECT gift idea for her. This feminine look would be an excellent choice for Mom. My terrarium jewelry makes great gifts for the nature lover, lover of flora or the gardener.
