its fall {sort of}

fall arrived today!  well, its technically fall, with a predicted high of 92 today it doesn't really feel like it.  but its a start... right?  i absolutely adore the fall, and the fact that it follows my least favorite season {summer} always makes it even better.  i can't wait to make trips to the farmers market on those perfect crisp, cool mornings to pick out my favorite fall vegetables.  i've been collecting delicious looking squash and pumpkin recipes {like this one} over the summer in preparation.  {yum}

horray!  its almost fall {my favorite season} and my show schedule is starting to get packed.  this month has been crazy with two shows so far, another one this weekend, preparing for my studio move at the end of the month {more details to follow}, and filling an order for metamorphosis metals' new home at Foundry in Asheville, NC.

two weeks ago, i participated in the wilmington art walk, and was lucky enough to spend the rest of the weekend relaxing at the beach with the lovely and talented "Boo" Reynolds of Bijou Savvy.  it was a fun show and a great weekend, the weather couldn't have been more perfect.  i'm looking forward to next year.  and once i get beach combing finds cleaned up, i'm going to have some great new photography props and jewelry components.
this past weekend was bazaarSPARK, which is part of SPARKcon, a great local event that showcases all kinds of creativity {music, fashion, poetry, dance, craft, etc} in the Triangle area.  at the last moment the bazaar was extended for a second day and it turned out to be a really great show.  this week i'm playing catch up and preparing for Designers Downtown Market on saturday.  i plan to have jewelry as well as handmade supplies and destash there.
 last month i added a new design to the metamorphosis line, custom initial necklaces, which debuted last month at Lazy Daze and finally made it to Etsy shop today.
