Happy Anniversary Sean!

Yup, today is our 3rd anniversary. That's not normally a bloggable topic except that today, instead of celebrating with my honey, I was teaching a Silk and Stone Necklace class this evening at BeYaGi. Tomorrow, of course, is the Art Show, then Friday we're driving to New Ulm - scheduled as such because I'm supposed to be teaching two classes at Sticks & Stones on Saturday. Doh!

Granted, I'm not one of those girls with my anniversary date tattooed to my brain, which is why a class ended up getting scheduled for today. But now that today's here, and the rest of this week's schedule is what it is, part of me wishes I had a little more time for us today. Alas.

Website Updates

Okay, so I still need to update the classes, but I have put a new face on the website by revamping the main page. I'm pretty proud of it. It's a little cleaner than the last version and it does a better job of showcasing my work, hopefully providing a better enticement to venture further - giving a little more value to updating the class information. So, if you don't access my blog through the main page of my website, check it out!

P.S. I own more than one domain name, so you can access my website through two other URLs:

Classes and Art Show

So, among some of the other tasks that have fallen by the wayside in my adjustment to being a new mom is that I haven't updated my website with the classes I'm teaching or announced the small art show I'm doing October 8th.

The art show is called the Art Scoop and is held next door to a local ice cream shop, across from Washington Middle School, about six blocks away from where I live. I've been part of the show since the first one two years ago (and the one last year which was switched to coincide with the July Rice Street Festival), so I'm very excited to continue being part of the local art community! I've posted the times, date, location, and some images of the jewelry I'll be bringing with on my website:
