Starting Trends

A beautiful four leaf clover!

This past weekend while at the Juggling Festival my family took a dinner break and I spent some time looking for four leaf clovers. Apparently you can get people to do anything. People kept on stopping to ask what I was doing and I'd say, 'Looking for 4-leaf clovers.' Then they'd look with me, I created quite the crowd! I found over 20 four leaf clovers and even a 5 leaf clover. One guy found a seven leaf clover.
I'm lucky!

Great Lighting

I wanted to share this awesome lighting fixture. My sister found it somewhere online. It looks like someone blew bubbles and they just stayed there in place.

Congress of Jugglers!

This Friday, Saturday and Sunday is the annual Continental Congress of Jugglers held in College Park Md. I and my family will be attending like we do most every year. There will be lots of friendly juggling, unicycling, fire eating, whip cracking and so on! It's a great day of sharing juggling tricks. In the evening at 7pm is a free juggling show that is really fun. If you're in the area check it out!

On the jewelry note, haven't gotten much done in that area in the last few days. After the wedding I'm sure I'll be back to posting daily and really sketching, reading, designing wonderful things!

Have a fantastic day!

What I've been up to...

For a girl who isn't working boy have I been busy! The image above is of a wedding favor I'm making out of wire for the wedding that is on the 24th of this month! I want the favor to be a surprise to those attending the wedding so you'll just have to wait to see the finished product.

Great news I was accepted into the New Approach School for Jewelers! I received the letter in the mail yesterday, so I'm very excited about that!

I'm driving tomorrow from Ohio to Maryland to go work on more wedding stuff and go to the Continental Congress of Jugglers in College Park MD. It will be fun! My family has gone to it every year for most of my life. It's practically a family reunion, we see the same people once a year and juggle together!
