I wanted to take this time to tell you about a new group that I recently became involved with, The Artisan Group! The Artisan Group is a group of talented Artisans that are carefully selected to provide Celebrities and Members of the Press wonderful gifts at all the major events, such as the Oscars, The Primetime Emmy’ s and the Golden Globes. As you may have seen during the Emmy’s, Many Celebrities even pose with these beautiful gifts.

The minute that I joined, I was embraced with love and support. The guidance is truly amazing and I can’t say enough how friendly everyone is. It is more of a family than a group. I love hopping from shop to shop, from store to store looking at everyone’s items and goods. I am awe struck and honored to be included in this amazing group and really want to extend the invitation. They are always looking for great Artisans. If you are interested in being represented in the next major awards show Gift Lounge, Check out WWW.Theartisangroup.org. Come join the fun!

I am over the moon to announce that my journals will be included in the Celebrity Swag Bags featured at the GBK’s Oscars Gift Lounge. My labels are in and the deadline is getting closer and closer…so much to do! Life moves very fast with the three children and their activities. My oldest son is busy driving here and there having recently obtained his license; my young lady is busy being a star in the school show choir and let’s be frank: a large amount of my mom energy is expended just trying to keep my youngest out of the dog’s water bowl! Any who, here is a sneak peek at my labels. I think that I have the perfect ribbon in mind to wrap around the gift boxes (Thanks Kiki!) Kids are asleep… deep breath… let’s start making little journals!

A Tidbit About Me

I have always been the crafty girl. I come from a long line of Artisans in my family so paint and scissors were always in the junk drawer of the kitchen. I now have about 4 of these drawers. Don’t worry, I clean them out to only one before Mama comes for a visit. My mom and I made tons of items to give as gifts and our bond grew strong. I have three of my own children now and try to incorporate arts and crafts in our daily lives; plus, it keeps them from screaming and yelling at each other. Well that’s not exactly true.

I became addicted to writing about my day. I use journals to vent, to plan, and to jot my new ideas down so I don’t forget. I got tired of the same plain ones at the big bookstores and took to learning how to make my own. First they were just for me. I decided to share my love of bookbinding and marched down to the best little local store in town, www.thepurplefern.com .  I opened my Etsy shop shortly after and haven’t looked back. Come visit me at www.thenibandquill.etsy.com to find the best vintage inspired coptic journal for you, or just stop by to say hey! I’m from the south and I do love to chat!

Nice to meet ya!
