Christmas In July

Well, it's the end of July already (where has the summer gone)? A lot of people are starting to think about the holidays with all the great Christmas in July sales that are going on. I came across this lovely ornament from Gretchen of Chichiboulie and just had to share. I just love snowmen, and Christmas is about my favorite holiday. Gretchen is a very talented designer and illustrator who lives in France. She's also the mommy to 3 little ones. You must check out Gretchen's blog for some great art and fun goings on!

Speaking of the holidays, how incredible would this necklace be for all those special occassions?! Hilary Johnson is a very talented jewelry artist whom I've been acquainted with for some time. She is also very knowledgeable about social media, so pay her blog a visit for some good reads (she's also very gracious)! Tell her I sent ya!

Where I Will Be This Weekend

If you live in or around Philadelphia, I hope you will join me this coming Saturday for the Philadelphia Designer's Market! This is their first event, but it is gaining alot of press. I'm really looking forward to being a part of it and meeting some other great, independant designers! The event is free and, in case you can't make it out, will be held at the Broad St. Ministry, 315 S. Broad St. The first 250 guests will recieve a goody bag filled with samples! The event runs from 11-6. Wish me luck :)

Time Flies...

...when you're busy! I've yet again neglected my poor blog, I'm so sorry! My little girl is just recovering from her stint with the chicken pox. I hated seeing her so itchy and uncomfortable! I've also been busy on the business front. I have been working with two ladies whom I've met on Twitter (love it!) who are both in the process of opening shops. I'm happy to report that I will be supplying both of them with some of my handcrafted jewelry! I'm so excited for the shops to open. I also have a show next weekend, so I've been busy working on new creations.

This week I will be featuring two of my fellow Creative bloggers, both of which I'm particularly fond of. Kelly of Macaroni and Glue is a very talented lady. I admire her ability to be a mom to a little girl, design pretty stationery, and run a beautiful blog. I fell in love with these pretty bird thank you cards. I have been wanting to find something a little more personal to include with my orders. With a few tweaks in color, I think this may be it!

Susy of Earth Expressions creates graphic pendants and other pieces of jewelry. I featured one of Susy's pendants in a Gift article that was featured last year. I particularly love this one of a kind bird pendant. The birdie is seen protecting her nest. This would be so sweet for a mom, or any bird lover. Susy also has some great rings that are perfect for summer!
