An Update for Rachel

8 Apr

So this blog has been sadly neglected since October according to my darling friend Rachel. 😉 I honestly didn’t think anyone would miss me so I wasn’t worried about updating. But now that I know I have at least one loyal reader, I feel it is my duty to post a little something. Now the only question is, where do I begin?

Well alot has happened since my last post. I successfully opened a holiday pop up shop  called The Foundrie at Chesterfield Mall featuring work by local artists and indpendent designers. It was pretty much the hardest and longest 6 weeks of my life but totally worth it. I could not have pulled it off with out the help of my amazing family and dear friends so again, a big thank you to all of you.  There is a link to more pics over at but here is a basic before and after.



I took a nice long break during January and to be honest, most of February. I am finally back on track and have new acrylic and stainless steel jewelry in the shop at Also looking forward to upcoming shows this spring including Renegade Craft Fair Brooklyn June 5&6. Excited to share a booth with my sis and for our little ones to have a fun weekend playing together. Here are a few pics of Stella from the past couple of months. She is getting so big and says something incredibly funny about every 5 minutes. Last weekend our dog Ollie got into a nest of baby squirrels and Stella told me that Ollie had “ruined” them. Yes, he did indeed. Tragic and funny at the same time. Happy Spring!!

    I read too. Stella is a mini-you with blond hair. So cute!

    I think you also need to update your list of STLCM members on the sidebar. 😛

      Thanks Robin! Oh my, that list is out of date. 😉 I should ask April to send a new one via email so I can copy/paste. But I will go in and add you now since you brought it to my attention. 😉
