On Tuesday I participated in the style lounge section of Charleston Fashion Week 2010. It was a very pleasant experience. I really liked how nice and helpful all the assistants were. With their help I was able to set up in time for doors to open at 6pm. The feedback from browsers/customers was great. I always like talking to people and hearing their enthusiasm. All in all a great night. I do wish I could have met Cynthia Rowley though!

summer is over!!!
My studio has come a long way!! It looks nowhere near what it did even a year ago. I had insulation put in made from recycled soda bottles & soy, walls put up, carpet made from recycled plastic bottles. I painted the walls a kind of camel/goldish color and put baseboards in myself. It just feels better to be in there! I have set up the front part of the main room to look like a display area. I like to see my work spread out so that I always feel inspired. The back part of the room is the work area. I really love it!
Today I worked on my photographs. I think that is finally coming along as well!! Now I just have to figure on how to post them to my site! It's all coming along. I am by no means an expert and most people would put me to shame on computer knowledge...but I'm pretty happy with what I've achieved so far. I think just sitting down and experimenting has done me well! Not bad for a beginner! More to come!

we just returned from our June trip to Chicago. It was great fun to be there again. I can't say that I'm thrilled to come home. I love my house but I really miss the city. If only I could transfer the entire lot to Chicago. I'm glad to live in Charleston...the best city in SC! But home is where your heart is as they say. I feel refreshed though. I'm so thankful to have the luxury to travel. It definitely makes life exciting and curious.
We went to the Hancock Building for our anniversary. There is a bar/restaurant on I think the 90-something floor. I highly recommend going there! The view is spectacular!

Anonymous alligator hanging out at Audubon swamp, Charleston.
Today I met with a really cool fellow jewelry designer and it was great because I was able to get fresh ideas about the jewelry business. I think we talked non-stop! I got to see her cute studio and just absorb all the feelings of creativity. Sometimes jewelry design can be a very lonely craft so it's important to meet with others even for a day.

always Bea remembered
Yesterday I heard about the passing of Bea Arthur. I was sad to hear about the news, but I'm glad that she passed away with her family at her side. I hope that was a comfort to her in her final moments. She was an inspiration to me because I respected her acting abilities and faithfully watched her almost daily. I really enjoy the show "Golden Girls" maybe because they are comfortable and familiar, like having your cute grandma there to nurture your soul on a daily basis. For me, that's inspiration to keep a smile on my face and have the courage to keep movin'! Thank you for being a friend Bea!
