laura james designs on nip/tuck

It finally aired! I know you've all been on pins and needles waiting to see the lovely Roma Maffia adorned in a Laura James Designs original...and that day is here!

You can see a riveting performance by Roma, and of course, bask in her great taste where gorgeous one-of-a-kind kilnformed glass pendants are concerned! Thanks again Roma, you're the best.

make a difference thursday - support local theater

As I'm sure you've heard by now, we're in the midst of economic turmoil. And while we are all looking at our spending in a more frugal way, I urge you to remember to buy local and support the arts! Of course you need bread and eggs and all those necessities, but you also need to laugh and have fun and enjoy LIFE!

I posted about this earlier...so in case you missed it, The Cody Rivers show will be in Portland this weekend and I'm really excited to see them. Not only are they uniquely hilarious, but I also get to feel good about supporting local theater. They are also on tour, so if they're coming to your town, then be sure to see them -- you'll be glad you did, I promise.

So get out there, find some local art to support! Come on, I know you want to!!!

Every little bit helps.

tip tuesday - goodwill

The economy got you down? The news is all doom and gloom these days. We're in big trouble without a doubt, but there are a few ways you can save money and still do good things. Even though things are tight, and the scent of fear is in the air, don't let that stop you from checking out the great bargains at Goodwill. Goodwill is a twofer, you get great bargains and you help a great company.

So when you want some retail therapy and can't justify a big blow out, check out your local Goodwill or other 2nd hand shops. You might just be surprised at all the treasures you will find!

Take good care... This too shall pass.

Wow! It's mid-February and already time if FLYING by!

The blog posts have been sparse for a few reasons...the main one being that I have been very sick for weeks and haven't had the energy to write anything and the other reason is that I joined Facebook and that has been the most fun time sucking social networking extravaganza ever! I have found my college friends, my high school friends, random friends that I had along the way from here and there! Facebook is totally RAD!

But I digress...

Posting here.

A few of you mentioned that you'd noticed a lapse in dazzling posts, so I will, from now on make sure that I continue to give you the content that you've become accustomed to and are begging for.

Thanks for noticing! You know who you are...
