Hi friends, I apologize for being so absent on my blog lately. I was on a roll there for a while and then disappeared without warning. I've had a few changes the past 6 months and I thought I'd take this opportunity to tell you a little bit more about what I do. Some of you know me from my jewelry design and craft shows, some from this blog, and some from what I spend most of my time doing, being an Art Director. What do I Art Direct? Well, After a few years working at an ad agency in NYC I found my calling working in magazines. Over the years I've been Art Director for a BMX magazine, various music magazines, and most recently Yoga Journal in San Francisco. It was during my time at Yoga Journal that I also fell in love with my weekend hobby, making jewelry, and that also led me to blogging. About 6 months ago (I can't believe it's been that long already) I decided to take the leap from magazines to books. I accepted a job at a publishing company where I Art Direct beautiful cookbooks. Well, I hope I make them beautiful, that's the goal anyway. I knew when I made the change that I'd need to take a little break from all my extra hobbies but I'm getting back to them now, and I just hope I wasn't away too long. I love being an Art Director, I love making accessories and sharing my love of fashion with you, I love being a part of the craft and blogging community, and most of all I love living a creative life. Here's to an awesome May, thank you for being a part of it and visiting my little blog.
