my first wholesale experience

well, what can I say about the BMAC show?  it was an experience...a great (long) learning experience...with a few great friends to help me through it.  on one hand, I really didn't know what to expect, so it's hard to be disappointed, but it made me realize so many things about my work...what it is and what I want it to to make it better and how to approach wholesale in the future. 

I made my first line sheet...met some nice people, and am hoping I might hear from a shop or two in the future...

new jobs!!!!

the day I never thought would come is here...I can finally stop working at Panera!!   :p  now it's been a very flexible job to have while finishing up my last classes for my degree- which I am soooo close to being done with!! - but it's time to stop waking up at 4am to go to toast bagels and brew coffee...

 so what will I be doing instead you might ask?  since one of my ultimate goals is to teach art, having work experience with kids is something I need to work my mornings will be spent with some adorable twins, Dhani and Dez, and in the afternoon, I'll be teaching an after school kindergarten program at my friends school in Fells Point!  I am so excited for these new positions, and I can't believe that I'll finally have jobs that are pointing me in the right direction!  

of course I'll still be making jewelry too, so as always I'll have multiple jobs, as well as class work...but maybe that's okay :)

a shower for baby Parker

Kait and I took a little road trip down to Richmond this weekend to visit Becka, Tripp, and celebrate the long awaited arrival of baby Parker!  Catherine threw the shower at her was so cute and blue!

I'm so glad to still be so close with my room mates...we really had the best senior year! We missed you Kate!
