My earliest memories of Easter are waking up and looking towards the foot of my bed and seeing my Easter Basket. My mom did this every year until I went to college;) I couldn't help but look this morning out of nostalgia! I did however get a cute lamb from my hubby.
I hope your Easter is filled with fond memories and fun times.

I was recently introduced to Dayna Davis by my good friend Leigh. Dayna and her friend Allison Firestone have created www.be-teen.com a wonderful web site for teens through their masters program at UC Berkeley’s School of Journalism. The site is all about empowering young woman to be unique and true to themselves. It was an honor when Dayna asked if she could interview me regarding joyajewely for her site. Check out my interview at www.be-teen.com
Thanks Dayna for letting me be a part of such a wonderful place where young woman can go to be inspired.

Spring is trying its hardest to break through all of this unseasonal wintry weather. I find myself daydreaming of flowing dresses in pastel colors and making jewelry using fabric and long chain. I want to try taking vintage fabric and deconstructing it into these really beautiful flowers to adorn my pieces. We shall see how it turns out. They look beautiful in my head.
I just participated in my first festival of the season this past Saturday - Newnan Market Days. It was the kick I needed to get in gear for the rest of the summer. My next festival is May 9 and 10 in Griffin. The event is called Hatch Market and I am partnering up with my very talented friend Tiffin from Linwood Avenue. It will be fun times for sure. So, if you live in Metro Atlanta come by that weekend and say hi.
Back to daydreaming about lovely things. Warmth, vintage brooches, flowy tops, scarves, and of course the start of yard/garage sales in town. Hope all your daydreams come true this summer.
