The lovely Shari got the honours of my first interview. I had a great time doing it! And I love reading the other interviews with all these amazing lady's! How did I get to be on that list?
Poes is laying on my lap, while I am trying to figure out the words of the second round from the Compound Word Project. I have a hard time...I really do...! But the photo's are all so nice!
I am getting things done, and slowly reading long neglected blogs of you!

another update

Hi Friends... can you believe this, it took me for ever to write another post. To much going on in live beyond the computer. I have been busy painting the mural for a baby room which I soon hope to show you after making some photo's. Rings are ready to send out and I am still working on some paintings. There are some orders on the Knitted rings which will be heading to happy receivers hopefully before the holidays. This time we are going to explore them in different shades of Gold.
I managed to update my website with more images of the Layers paintings and my friend Verena has her new website running - for a while already :), have a look at her jewelry.
Also a while ago Wendy came with two friends to have dinner at my place. We had a great time, lots of talking about art and other stuff. She left alone and her friends live in my room now, happy me :) I am sad Wendy leaves to LA, but I am very curious about her word project!
And I was one of the happy people to receive one of Mav's cards. I love it! As I do her holiday gift guide. Lots of nice stuff!
I am off to see Casino Royal...hope it is better than Babel, that sucked!

the show

Some last preparations, all the rings in their little plastic bag with number and size.
Paintings on the wall, still empty jewelry displays...
And then the moment was here, last weekend was SHOWTIME... all the hard work was rewarded with a crowded show on both Saturday and Sunday. There were so many people that there were waiting lines in the hallway :) All the jewelry was spread out carefully by all the designers and I think everybody was happy with the way it looks.
My paintings fitted perfectly on the looked SO nice, I am a very happy girl :) I got lots of nice comments! And you know what the best part was...all my friends came to look at the paintings and the jewelry :-) thank you so much!!!
So, I am back to my normal was all about cleaning up and giving Poes some attention. And tomorrow I will be back in the saddle finishing orders of rings in sizes I did not had at the show, painting commissions and buying supplies for a mural for a baby room that I will be starting to make hopefully this week. The mural has to be finished soon....because the lovely lady is getting close to due date :) And this is also why I had my first baby-shower this weekend, and it was so nice! It was in Lady Mendl's tea Salon, such a beautiful space. We drank lots of tea, ate many many cookies, chocolate, fingers sandwiches, salad, scones... I was completely stuffed when I had to rush back to the show!
So I will be catching up with you all this week...lots of blogs to read, emails to write and phone calls to make! *Daphne
