Congrats S & R!!!

My best friend and maid of honor just got engaged this weekend!!!!! I couldn't be happier for her and her new beyoncé.

Dear S & R,

I can't express over the phone or computer how incredibly ecstatic I am for the both of you.
S, you are one of the most important people in my life. We've watched each other evolve as friends and women for the past 5 years and it makes me so happy to see that you've met your perfect match and found true happiness and love in him.
R, I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed us becoming better friends. You are such an inspiration as an artist and so kind to everyone around you. I'm so glad that you are in Sarah's life and will be for a long time to come!
The two of you are such a beautiful and unique couple. I wish you all the happiness and love in the world as you start the new chapter in your lives together.
I love you both so much and wish I was there to celebrate!

Just think, it's only starting now! How exciting!

All my love,

Ideas, Ideas

I've just been feeling really motivated and inspired lately, which I've needed for a long time. I have so many new jewelry and other craft ideas stirring around in my head! I love it.

One of my new daily go-to sites is Design Sponge. I'm so hooked. I really love this desk, i might need to make one of my own for a little craft/jewelry work station.

Some jewels i made JL for her birthday.

The stone in the wire-wrapped ring is jade:

The necklace was made from a graphic of some vintage wallpaper that I scanned and downsized. Then I applied diamond glaze over the setting and image to create a glass effect:

p.s.- if i've made you any jewels, take a quick shot and sent it my way so i can post them!


I can't get enough of this line. I would happily wear each and every piece. Such classic and interesting designs, i love it!

Robb, I know what you'll say about this jacket: "It's a 'Mia' jacket." I guess I should probably get it then! (even tho i have no idea how much it costs.)
Go here to see the whole Spring Collection.

Jennie L has been busy lately, check out the new sneaks that just launched.

Opening Ceremony had a little gathering for the kicks last night.
Store owner Humberto Leon said "Most athletic shoes for women aren't that good and the guys get the best colorways, but taking the feminine theme so far actually works and looks cool."

I totally agree. Working at Nike it's not uncommon for me to say "I wish these came in my size!" I see so many dope pairs of mens shoes pass by wishing they were made for women. I'll be rockin' the Libertys for sure.

Way to go JL! These rule.

Doggie Dash

Work has been so busy lately, the last thing I want to do is get on the computer when I get home. That's my excuse for being absent lately, does it work? It's slowed down a bit and I can take a sec during my lunch break to escape to the magical land of blogging.

So this Saturday is not only S&O's big baby shower bash, it's also the Oregon Humane Society Doggie Dash!!! It's a 2 mile walk/run to benefit the Humane Society. 100% of the registration fees and sponsorships go directly to the OHS. Their goal is $150,000.00 and they've already achieved $136,962.90 of it, thanks to many of you!

I hold a place in my heart for the Oregon Humane Society because that is where we adopted Mona from, so it feels good to give back a bit. There are just so many abused and neglected animals that go into shelters every year. If I could, I would adopt them all! At least this way they will get the proper resources and care they need living in a shelter.

Mona, Jen, Sage and I will be running on Saturday morning at 9:15 am, if you're in the area come by and cheers us on!

If you'd like to make a donation:

Check out the OHS site, there's plenty of pets that need a home:

spay and neuter your pets!
