Exciting + Terrifying = Jewelry Party

Some lovely friends are throwing me my first ever jewelry party on July 30. The party is at the Westin Grand on 24th and M Streets NW, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. I’m so excited! If you live in the area, please stop by and see me and enjoy some drinks and snacks. Raffle tickets, with net proceeds going to Noah's Wish, will be available -- there will be a drawing to win free jewelry. I’m busy working on new items and on building up my stock of current offerings. Anyone who has jewelry party advice, please share . . . .

My Super Duper New Banner(s)

My friend Marisa, who is a professional graphic designer, created some new banners and a logo for my Etsy shop. She's so talented and I feel very lucky that she made them for me! I've included my favorite of the drafts here, which isn't the one I ended up using for my shop. (Click here to see the actual new banner.) Marisa said she made the cat one just to make me smile. Actually, though, I was very close to using it in my shop. :)
