Awhile back, I entered a design contest with Shopbevel. You may have remembered voting for this jewelry design contest where the challenge was to design something that incorporated neon. I submitted my Neon Pink Crystal Cord Bracelet and ended up being one of the winners! Well, my design is up and running over at the Shopbevel site, and they did a fantastic job of photographing and styling my bracelet. Check out the photos below, and you can get the bracelet here! Only the Neon Pink is available at Shopbevel, but you can get the black and confetti versions directly from my website as well.

A few weeks ago, I was down at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to participate in the Mom’s Weekend Craft Fair. I went to U of I for 5 years, and I got both my undergraduate and graduate degrees there. I’m a pretty die hard Illini fan, and most of my family also went to U of I as well. Since it was Mom’s Weekend, I figured it would be fitting to bring my mom down with me to help out, and we had a really great time doing the craft fair as well as visiting our favorite campus establishments. Some of my favorite memories were from U of I, and it was great to meet students at the craft fair creating college memories of their own. I was crazy busy all day, and it was wonderful. The best sellers were the Woven Chain and Crystal Bracelets, and I nearly sold out of all of them!. All in all, it was a great experience, and I can’t wait to come back and visit again 🙂

I couldn’t resist taking a picture on the beautiful green quad.
They had free pictures at the bookstore, so of course my Mom and I had to get one 🙂
Last month, I participated in this great shopping event at The Bedford called Shop the Night Away. It was a wonderful shopping event inside the parlor of the Bedford that included champagne and yummy appetizers. I thought the Bedford was a great venue to host a mini trunk show since it’s just so classy and has a nice relaxed feel. There were also some amazing vendors including Jojo & Sofia and Bonnie Body & Bath. I love doing these types of events and meeting other great handcrafted artists. The only downside (if you could call it that) to doing the event was that I simply couldn’t resist buying things from the other vendors! In the end, it was absolutely worth it, and I was able to meet some great people and pick up a pair of cuff links for my boyfriend and these amazing smelling soy body candles.
