I was toying with the idea of putting together a local meet 'n greet - Phoenix, AZ area. I was getting serious about setting one up for May. And then good fortune winks my way and I meet Kristin, designer extraordinaire and owner of my favorite local boutique, Domestic Bliss (amazing! Like Anthropologie, but better), who has plans to open a new facility for local creative types to meet up & frenzy off each other's energy, take classes, etc. We became fast friends. She's naming the studio Blissful Living. And her concept is very close to my heart. (We had an amazing dinner at their home a couple of weeks ago - should have brought my camera! - must go back & take photos. She even has chickens - fantasy of mine - in the most adorable chicken coop you'll ever see.)
And Kristin is quick to it -- Blissful Living opens on Friday! I'm planning to be there this Saturday, May 10th, from 11-2 to meet up with, well, whoever stops by. A meet 'n greet. Thank you, universe. So, come see me & maybe even bring some of your creations with you! And if you stick around, hopefully you'll make some new friends with similar interests who live in your neck of the desert. Visit Kristin's Blissful Living blog for more info. And here's the address: Blissful Living 166 W. Main St. Mesa, AZ.
I'll be teaching a workshop there toward the end of June too -- details to come.
And meet Chloe, my new little niece! My brother's fourth child, second girl. (And she looks just like her big sister, Haley.) They've had a couple of rough years and couldn't be more ecstatic about welcoming home a new baby. It's a thrill to witness. We're so glad she's here & safe!
