Wow! It's only April and we had two days of weather in the 80's! I couldn't have asked for a better weekend. I made it a point to do some crafting, take some photos and go outside. Even though I had Briana of Benny & Roo (http://www.bennyandroo.etsy.com) design my business cards (she did a fantastic job btw) I decided I would use some of my photos for Moo cards (http://www.moo.com). As soon as both cards come I will post photos. If anyone is interested in swapping moo cards I'm all for it!
So I went to New Hope, PA yesterday. For anyone who has never been there it's a very cool artist community across the river from Lambertville, NJ. There's lots of beautiful and unusual things for sale and so many wonderful places to eat. I had some italian ices in my favorite ice cream joint (oops cheated on my diet). I also picked up two vintage necklaces. One of them is purple givre glass beads and the other has these wonderful foil and frit glass beads. I couldn't resist. The foil glass beads are amazing in person. I cannot wait to take this necklace apart (it's quite ugly) and reuse the gorgeous beads in several new pieces!
I'm also working on creating some enamel pieces for the shop. I spent an hour today sanding copper circles that I cut out last week. There's so much prep work that goes into enameling but it's worth it. Every time I wear one of my pieces I get compliments. I have to schedule some additional time in the studio so I can churn out some new work.
Well I'm off to enjoy what's left of the weekend!
