Dr. Laura Schlessinger, your artist in residence for this
Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation Boutique, has been helping people
be and do better in their lives for almost four decades on radio.
She is happily nestled in at SiriusXM 109 and enjoying the ability
to be heard live across the country (and anytime you want on
Dr. Laura (as she started to be called at the beginning of her
on-air career by folks who gave up on pronouncing "Schlessinger")
has always been involved in working for various charities,
especially those having to do with children and military veterans. Between selling her
personally handcrafted jewelry online, and various public
appearances (most notably her "Birthday Dance Bashes") she never disappoints with her commitment to the cause.
Here she goes again! One thing about Dr. Laura that amazes
all of us is that she is constantly on the prowl to learn new
things: weaving, hand-knitting, polymer clay, wire wrapping, and
most recently, fine silver metal clay and glass arts. She owns four
kilns for glass and one for the silver metal clay. She is
particularly enthralled with glass arts. This boutique is the recipient of her passion and hard work. She has been
working most of this year to learn and produce lovely glass art
(bowls, platters, clocks, etc.) and to make fine silver jewelry. We
are very excited to present her work with the goal of helping the
children of our fallen patriots.
