Bowie woman, daughters get glitzy with glassware

Mar 18th 2015 at 6:41 PM

After a stressful day at work, Dawn Patrick likes to turn on some country music and relax with a wine glass  an empty one.

The Bowie resident and dental practice manager is the owner of a new small business called Glassy Gurlz a custom glass-printing service that turns a plain wine glass, mug or mason jar into a memorable keepsake. Patrick runs the business with two fellow wine-lovers  her daughters Hailey and Holli Patrick.

I wanted a business where I could work with my daughters, Holli and Hailey, and we could be in control of our own destiny while using our creative minds, Dawn Patrick said in an email. One of our favorite things to do is wine tours and tastings of various wineries in the [Maryland and Virginia] area so I thought, why not do something creative with the wine theme?

The business idea was born last year when Patrick's youngest daughter was a student at the University of Maryland, College Park, and was visiting her mother on winter break, said Hailey Patrick, 22.

The pair decided their wine glasses were less than glamorous and wanted to add a few creative touches, Hailey Patrick said.
We didn't want the plain old clear glasses. And having a cute glass is always a motivation to have another glass of wine, she said with a laugh. We were having so much fun,For more hot-sale information about Spray Color Glass Series,Hot sale Spray Color Glass Series you can search our official website and buy Spray Color Glass Series. we said we should sell these things.

Hailey Patrick now attends law school in Charleston, SC, but said she still helps create classy glasses for Glassy Gurlz when she visits home. Holli Patrick, who lives in New Windsor, also helps out with the wine designs, her mother said.

The Patricks sold their glasses locally in Bowie for a short time then opened an online Etsy store last February, Dawn Patrick said. It took the women six weeks to receive their first order, but now the Etsy store receives an order almost daily  and orders are typically for multiple glasses, she said.Searching supply information of excellent Machine Blowed Series Glassware,Machine Blowed Series Glassware price online negotiating the wholesale and latest price of Machine Blowed Series Glassware, please feel f

For Cathy Land of Bowie, personalized wine glasses made the perfect gifts for a group of girlfriends that patronized various restaurants and wineries.

We called ourselves the Dining Divas, Land said. [Dawn and I] sat down and looked through all the different colors and fonts so everything would be customized the way I wanted it.

The secret to the Glassy Gurlz glasses is an adhesive vinyl which the Patricks cut based on requested designs. They also often paint the bottoms of the glasses with paint or glitter, Patrick said.

Samantha Moore of Ellicot City said she heard about Glassy Gurlz while living in Bowie and has purchased wine glasses and coffee mugs from the company. The creative cups helped put her in the running in an unofficial family competition for unique Christmas presents, she said.

I did not get the craft gene. I like everybody else's crafts but I am not a crafty person, she said. I love [Dawn's] products. They're adorable and she can do just about anything.If you are looking for high quality Other Glassware,high quality Other Glassware just visit our website.

Recently, Glassy Gurlz hosted a paint-your-own-wineglass event and has lined up three more events based on the positive response, Dawn Patrick said.
