Announcing --- Apprenticementor.com - a non-profit website where apprentices and mentors can find eachother.

This is an idea I've had for years and years, based on the success of my apprenticeship with Celie Fago. Suddenly everything was aligning to make this project a go. Most of all - the generosity of Simplenation.com in creating the website. I would happily write more about it here but why not just check out the site? Apprenticementor.com

From Burlington to Bennington

So, it's been awhile. I carry a lot of guilt for not keeping up with my blog. But, what can ya do. You can only move forward and hope to do better. I don't know where the time went but I know I was busy...

Even this post is something I wanted to write over a week ago. Excuse me while I play catchup...

Saturday, May 22 was a BIG day. For weeks I worked on my new venture (more on that in the next post) and on making jewelry for the Burlington Artist Market. It was a crazy juggling act. Then the day came and there I was, at the first market of the season and it was AWESOME! How I missed the familiar faces and kids and dogs and food and art... we even had perfect weather.

Then we made our way down luscious, winding roads to the Bennington Museum for the Opening of "State of Craft" an exhibit that
"celebrates the artistic, social and economic history of the studio crafts movement in Vermont over the last 50 years." I'm so honored to have my Journey Necklace in such an important Exhibition.
I wouldn't be if it wasn't for my mentor: Celie Fago. The Opening was great, an exceptional exhibit, old friends, new friends, amazing food, blue grass music and an opportunity for us to pass out cards and talk about our new venture...
