Links from the show:

Meet Lee Rhodes of glassybaby :

It began with a light of hope. The glassybaby founder Lee Rhodes was fighting her third battle with cancer and raising her three small children when the first glassybaby was created in 1998.  She was searching for peace and calm and found it when she dropped a tea light in a handmade votive.   She found great hope and healing in its color and light.  glassybaby was born.

When Lee was cancer-free, her friends and family began asking her to create more glassybaby.  She opened a glassblowing studio and the company grew, through word of mouth. People gave them as gifts of love, celebration, consolation, and joy. Visit the glassybaby site here.

glassybaby = good product + good company + good will.
