Old is New!

I confess, I've been a blogging and Etsy shop slacker. I finally got a few things photographed and in the shop. I know this sounds like it should be easy, but somehow it seemed harder than quadratic equations. Mostly because I'm never home when natural light is available for shooting pics. I'm hoping to add a bunch more items over the next week since I'm on VACATION! I'll be sunning myself in the dining room via the window and noshing on no-name snacks at the Schroeder chalet in St. Lou. I'm actually pretty excited, there will be turkey on Thursday (thank you Mr. Turkey!) and my pal, Janelle, has promised me homemade cupcakes this week. Yes people, I get excited about food that's baked in an oven. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everybody, may your gravy bowl never be empty and your list of thanks be lengthy!

Artropy and Mixed Media Goodness

In case I haven't told you five times already, Artropy is THIS Thursday at Sqwires-The Annex in the wonderful and historic Lafayette Square neighborhood. There will be live music, the restaurant will be open, and the drinks will be flowing at the bar. Kick back and relax and take a bite out your holiday shopping.

I am debuting my new line of mixed media jewelry pieces - layers of color and texture on upcycled paper that I transformed into wearable art. In addition to being totally unique, it's bold without being gaudy, featherweight, and super comfortable. I've been wearing a pair of earrings from the collection all week and I have gotten a lot of really positive feedback. Here's a sneak peak of a pair of earrings from the collection. I hope you like them!
