While perusing the site, I found that one of my favorite items was this canvas. There's several available, and the prices range from $15-$42 each. If you ever happen to find yourself in the lovely City of Roses sometime, you should definitely head down to the Hawthorne District and check out the brick and mortar shop.

Who can resist a single piece of fabric that expands the possibilities of your wardrobe ten-fold? Personally, I have a huge weakness for this kind of thing. While I'm still undecided on the color I want, I've had the opportunity to try it out and am definitely picking one up for fall.

It's my birthday today, so I thought I'd deviate from the norm and post about my cool and exciting presents. From my husband? Drum lessons! I have become interested in them in the last year or so, and he thought it would be a fun present. I'm happy to report that he was right! I've done a few lessons already (I had to start early due to my instructors tour dates), and am having a blast!!! It's so fun. And aside from my instructor being a great teacher, he also does a mean Speak 'n Spell impression.
I also got a completely unintentional, but super cool birthday present from Kalmbach Publishing. Last year, I submitted an instructional article to Bead and Button magazine on how to make a pair of cool, bohemian style hoop earrings, which showed up in the August 2006 issue. Totally cool in and of itself, but the editors selected the tutorial to appear in the book Creative Beading Vol. 2. Below is a variation of the project that appears in the book.
The book showcases the best projects over the year from the magazine. While my project in particular is relatively quick and easy, there are some really beautiful projects for every skill level. I recieved my complimentary copy over the weekend, and my Boho Hoops project shows up on page 20. Cool, I'm published!

Once again, both pairs have made the little journey into my personal jewelry box. Big surprise there, right? I've found these earrings to be really fabulous and versatile. They can be dressed up or dressed down accordingly, and the compliments I get when I wear them out are endless. The color of the gem is pure and bright, with no veins of black or anything else marring the surface. These are really heirloom grade gems.
Due to a crazy week, I wasn't able to add them onto the site or update the homepage, but they'll be available for purchase next week. As always, if you don't think you can wait that long, contact me and we can arrange a PayPal transaction.

I need some plant food and water, STAT! Oh wait, never mind. This quirky pot comes with a plant food IV drip and a self-watering feature so your plant never has to go hungry again. A bit of an odd twist, but I image it can actually come in quite handy.

There's nothing wrong with feeling like the queen of your home, is there? That's exactly how I would feel enjoying the view of my subjects from this fabulously extravagant armchair. As the moniker implies, love, love, love it!!

The 7/6/07 issue hit the streets of Phoenix last Friday morning, and the response has been amazing! If you happen to be in the great and incredibly hot state of AZ at the moment, you should check it out. The necklace graces page 21 in the Your Essential Schedule section.

I've actually been looking for a replacement for quite a while a while now, but recently came across these cool, yet understated sandals from Michael Kors. I just love the minimal Greek thing they have going for them, not to mention the faux wood insole. They're a great find, and should work with everything. Score!

Personally, I wish it were fall already. It's been over 100 degrees every day in the desert for a while now, and as you can imagine, I'm spending a lot of time day dreaming about fall. I know I still have a while to wait, seeing as how summer has just started and everything - but it's those little things that keep me going! Oh, and the AC, of course ;)
Have a happy and safe 4th, everyone!

Just added to the site yesterday, I think I have to say that I have some new favorites! The combination of elements is just so vibrant and summery. I love it!
