Events + Project


I've been having a lot of fun making some wonderful jewelry for JP Open Studios (and the holiday events coming up!). Stop by JP Open Studios this weekend, I will have a tent outside the Eliot School (24 Eliot Street) Saturday and Sunday from 11-6.  Click here for the JPOS Map

Here are two of my favorite new designs! Smokey Quarts and pressed glass beads - tiny faceted smokey glass beads, wrapped around and around my wrist (I have about 40+ colors, see the pic below!)


And yet another event to consider...
Art of the Cocktail: The Labor of Liquor 
Oct 1st, 6pm & 8pm 
My friend Dr. Markeya Williams has put together a fabulous series at The Boston Center For Arts on libations, mmm...libations! The first event will focus on rum, if you buy your ticket before the 19th you get a wonderful discount. Yay! Head Distiller, Maggie Campbell, of the local Privateer Rum company will be on board leading the discussion. Can. Not. Wait! 

Sweet tiny lil itty small baby jesus, I did something involving a "project"
I love products. I have a specific moisturizer for almost every body part...and i have no space in my tiny bathroom. So, I finally got over my fear of making holes in my uneven weird walls and put up some shelves - Amanda really did most of the driving/handholding with this project. I got the shelves at Ikea, I dont see them on the site any more :/ and the wood at home depot. With detailed instructions from Amanda (i'm ridiculously slow sometimes) I stained and sealed the wood. And thats it. Most of the products that I use daily are happily stored on a shelf now...not scattered around the small sink :)

theMove gem!

What are you doing this Saturday? My friends have been going on and on about this org called theMove - I originally showed little interest because who wants to go digging and planting food? Seriously. I don't even like cooking. Aaaahhhh but then I went to one of their events that involved a clothing swap and I was hooked! The Move is a fabulous organization that connects folks to the EARTH, to the EARTH people! Anyhoot, check out their web site and buy a ticket to their Summer Sol event this Saturday. Tickets available here 
There will be an amazing selection of drinks and tasty bites served. mmm...tasty bites...drinks...


Below are some pictures from last years event...I stole it from FB - sorry in advance to anyone miffed by this! See you Saturday, toodles! -Keyse

A whole post on BoJack Horseman, a cartoon GEM!

Hi....I know, I need to wrap up the summer. I'm working on it. In the mean time, I want to alert you to a really cool cartoon I have been enjoying on Netflix. BoJack Horseman is awesome, hes dug a little whole in my heart. Below are some of my favorite "rooms" from the show. Will Arnett does his voice...so good, watch it!

Bojack was famous in the 90s, hes trying to make a come back via a tell all book...in comes the ghost writer! 

I love his deck 

Much like my kitchen (minus the amazing view, counter space, tiles, modern cabinets...) Bojack doesnt do much cooking

I wonder who decorated his house, I love the little ottoman. Bojack often looks sad and dejected 

Especially when Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), his ex/girlfriend/publicist, reminds him he should be writing and not drinking...heavily. I love the details, especially the chair and artwork
