EVENT Charlottesville City Market, Saturday, Nov 3rd, 8a-1p

It's beginning to feel like fall, finally! My creativity is in full swing as I create pieces inspired by the  season, beautiful foliage, chill in the air, morning frost... I look forward to the change of the season and what comes with it at the city market. I'm talking about hot cider, caramel apples, fresh cut evergreen wreathes and garland, baked goods, and the seasonal artistic designs. This Saturday, market hours will change from 8a-1pm. So, we all gain an extra hour of sleep before we walk out into the cold morning temps.

NYC from a different perspective

Most who dream of a visit to The Big Apple, think of big city lights, sky scrapes, bumper to bumper yellow cabs, sight seeing, and of course, the occasional celebrity sighting. I, on the other hand, think of the bead district, The Brooklyn Flea, and trips on the subway to unchartered territory for future business relations. My expectations were exceeded with my recent trip to New York. Here are a few pictures from my first day, in The Bead District. I am anxious to return real soon.

This will be a long awaited three day trip with a talented girlfriend to seek inspiration and stimulate our creative juices. I can't think of a better place. On our list of places to visit, Soho and Brooklyn Flea...maybe even Chinatown. Three days won't be enough!

Summer Sale 20% off all In Stock designs from Girls Day Out

I hope no one was disappointed last weekend, as I was a "no show" at The Charlottesville City Market. We lost power, resulting from the storm that blew through Virginia on friday night.  That combined with the record breaking temperatures, kept me at home. I have decided to stay put this weekend, also, as temps are expected to reach over 100 degrees. One advantage from all of this heat, is that I have been working away in the studio and stocking up with new designs. This has me in the mood for a little summer sale. Go to my etsy site to take advantage of 20% off all In Stock designs. Use code SUMMERFUN at checkout. Stay cool everyone! XO AMY
