I asked Dano… “What should I blog about!”
He says, “How about your work stuff?”
I look at him like, ‘you silly, you know I don’t ‘work’… and he says, “Your jewelry stuff and your shows” :)
OH! That! The love of my life job! OK! So, here goes!
Jewelry Shows :
On this past Thursday, I completed the 4th of 14 weeks at the San Carlos Art Walk! FUN! :) I am in front of Sassy Chic Boutique at 845 Laurel (Starbucks) from about 4-8pm and I display different pieces each week… cycling through my ‘From My Travels’ collection and my “When in… Home” collection. I’ve been blessed enough to sell at least one piece each week… and that is what I go in knowing… that I will get to sell something every week! :)
Additionally, on Saturday, July 19th, I’ll be sharing a booth with an Art Walk friend at an Arts & Music Festival in Half Moon Bay!

Jewelry Photoshoot :
Cia Gould is focusing on her photo projects… she put a word out on craigslist looking for jewelry artists, so that she could get some good practice on product photography! I answered the ad… and Dano and I went out yesterday for a nice couple hours of a great photoshoot!! FUN! I’m so glad I answered the ad.. and that she invited us over… I look forward to seeing the results!
Cia is also working on a very interesting and great project called L.E.G.S. (Learn, Empower, Give, Support). She will be taking photos of 25 women’s legs… all decked out in what they do for a living (what they do to live!)… I suppose I’ll be “The Jeweler”… *shrug!* as I draped a few of my favorite necklaces on my leg and played model for about an hour ;) It is most difficult being a super-model… that is not an easy job for them, mind you! ;)
To go along with the project and my LEGS photo, I’ll need to write a little something about over-coming adversity or something in that vein… whew, I’m kinda’ scared about writing for that!

Thanks for reading!
One of my favorite sites to check out when I move to a new place or am interested in a new hobby is www.meetup.com
I immediately got on meet-up to start looking for groups we might be interested in and tag a few areas of interest that we’d like to know if a meet-up was created for.
Soon thereafter, A Walking Meet-Up was created in a our very own RWC (Redwood City)… so I joined! A great way to meet new people, get some exercise in, AND find out about new places to see!! :) Shana is walking the 3Day Breast Cancer walk in Sept and wanted some motivation and accountability, so she created the meet-up for that reason!
The Sawyer Camp Trail is Awesome!!! So beautiful! Our first walk there, we saw a deer and it’s baby! Our 2nd walk there was beautifully sunny and we got 3miles down! It’s a 12mile trail in total! Paved and lined… for walkers, riders, runners, and bladers!
It’s located along the Crystal Spring Reservoir… Which also happens to be part of the San Andreas Fault!! Whew ;)
So great… We will be back!
Sawyer Camp Trail
… we got up SO early (not typical for us to start the day at 6am!)… we stood on cement and cheered (throat sore now) and clapped (wrists aching) for about 3hrs straight… AND it was kinda’ cold out…
But guess what… We LOVED it… we were there to support our friend, David Rogers, as he and his friends, Angela & Jeffery… began their first day of seven to ride over 500 miles in a Benefit Ride to End Aids!!! This is his 3rd year riding, I’m so proud of him. If he and the many riders joining in the ride can do it… then we could certainly give them 3hrs of our time and cheers!!! :)
This was one thing that made me happy about being in the Bay Area… that Dano and I could head out to support the 2,400 riders for this event!
We had a fun time the previous weekend, as we drove along the route the riders would be taking, so that we could find just the ride spot to cheer and support from the sidelines! We ended up picking the corner of Hayne Road as it drops down towards Sawyer Camp Trail off Hwy 280… super great trail too!
It was a great day and it was a fun adventure!! :)
