I am thrilled to report that I have my computer back!!! I am in heaven!! Im not entirely sure its a good thing that i am SO addicted to my the Internet, but i really did miss it like crazy!
I spent a relaxing weekend in in Ocean City, Maryland with some of my best girlfriends. I had time to watch many Sex and the City episodes, paint my nails and work on my designs.
Today I made the trip from OC to Rehoboth Beach DE to visit the Heidi Lowe Gallery. It was well worth the trip, and I was very happy with what I saw. I met Heidi, who really couldn't be any friendlier and more personable. She is very down to earth, and is doing a wonderful job. It sounds like her gallery and reputation are really growing, and it makes me happy to see nice people doing well for themselves.
The list of artists she represents is VERY impressive, and very eclectic. The gallery has artists such as Jamie Bennett, Megan Auman, Christina Goodman, Janet Huddie, April Wood, Jennifer Pollock Harris, and Anya Kivarkis.

If you are ever in the Rehobath Beach area, you dont want to miss it!
However, I was quite happily surprised with the latest issue. Yes, the cover is annoyingly pink (to say the least), but the contents of this Curated Exhibition in Print issues is quite lovely. Ellen Lupton was the guest curator, and did an impeccable job selecting the artists included this year. Her statement also starts out singing the phrase of Baltimore's own Betty Cooke for her design skills. Through her eclectic selection of artists and work, I have been introduced to many new artists working today.
SNAG also has a new website up and running. Hopefully this is a peek of things to come for SNAG...
I may be jumping ahead of myself a little here, but my mom just bought me this great book and i wanted to share it with you. My mom and i have a shared joy of Christmas, and start getting ready way before most people even start to think about it. Its one of my favorite things to bond with my mom over, and we always have the best time.
This book, called Merry and Bright has 301 GREAT idea for holiday decorating and entertaining. Even if i never use one of the ideas from this book (and im SURE i will), just looking at all the pictures makes me happy! Don't be fooled by the fact that Country Living put this book out either. Its absolutely fabulous, and doesn't have the gingerbread/clothespin angle ideas you might expect from the Country Living of the past. For a decorating addict like me like me, its a must read!
Fa La La La La... La La La LA!!
Another trait i got from my mom was the need to collect things in bulk. like these brass bangles! I bought them for a project that never happened (shocking!) . So now that i have been cleaning house, I decided i just don't need them anymore. Want them, think you can use them.. Great! Email me, they are yours!
Prepare to be overloaded with new pictures and posts!
CONGRATULATIONS to Juliet of Broken Plate on the birth of her little boy Nolan Taylor! He looks adorable, hopefully she will be around to show him off soon!
