I love small shops, especially the ones where my friends work! Located in Marblehead, Yankee Doodler is everything that is right framing and cool gifts and accessories. I’m not just saying that because I just finished working with them on their website. They did an amazing job with a few prints I got while traveling to Nashville, from the Hatch Show Print. As this was my first forray into framing, Sam did a fantastic job choosing how to frame them. Now I have beautiful pieces of work on my walls, and I don’t look like i live in a college dormitory! Their gift selection is crazy eclectic, I’m hoping to go on one of their many gift show trips to see them do their magic.
There are so many amazing hand made products in the world. Etsy draws me in from time to time and it’s hard to choose between so many talented artists and crafters! A beautiful set of jewelry made by one of the most loving and caring people I know can be found at Earth Lotus Rising . All of her pieces are a made with a thoughtful technique, a careful touch and a focus on healing. One of my favorite pieces in the store right now is this pair of copper earrings

I recently finished the Aquent Gymnasium WordPress Theme class and felt a redesign of my site was in order. As I practice what I learned the format of this site should slowly morph into a format that is completely created by me. Right now I’m working to get the organization down to have a site that has better functionality and easily modified in the future. Here’s to the future.
