I don't know about you but I could really go for some new dresses! Here are a few that have caught my eye recently: 1. Noa Noa available now at Narcisse (http:www.shopnarcisse.com) 2. Plumo (http://www.plumo.com) 3. Berardi (via http://www.honeykennedy.com) 4. vintage (source unknown)
There's a new look book up featuring select pieces from the new Valentine's Collection. I'll be updating my shop over the next couple of days so you'll soon be able to scoop these up for yourself or your sweetheart.
Here are a few things on my list this year:
*Making art again (In another life I used to do artsy photography and make books).
*Exercise (This makes my list every year but I'm pretty lazy! There is a beautiful mountain near my house and my goal is to walk it a few times a week).
*Get home to visit family more often.
*Make more time for friends.
*Grow my business (I hope you'll be able to find Paper Treasure in more stores across the country this year).
Here's to 2011 and to new beginnings! I hope everyone's new year is off to a fantastic start! I took a much longer break than I anticipated but I'm well rested now and beginning to work on a brand new collection that I can't wait to unveil. (Photograph by Man Ray)
The big day is almost here... I've been super busy in preparation! Crafty Wonderland is next weekend, December 11th & 12th at the Convention Center. 11-5 Both days with free admission and gifts for the early birds! I'll be there with my friend and jewelry designer, Brehan Todd along with about 200 other vendors! Check out the list of this year's participants at: http://www.craftywonderland.com It looks like it's going to be the best line-up yet! I'll be offering discounts on my current collection plus complimentary gift wrapping (I'm even printing my own wrapping paper!).
So, because I'm a little old lady at heart I was delighted to discover that you can watch episodes of Antiques Roadshow Online. I love learning about antiques in general but am obviously most interested in the jewelry. I could hardly contain myself when they showed the work of Margaret De Patta, an avant-garde artist working in California in the 1940's. The jewelry was so non-traditional that I immediately needed to know more.
