So last night, I had a stellar evening – Jen and I slowly and crankily made our way through icky Eastside traffic (how do you guys HANDLE that commute?!) to go meet my favorite jewelry designer in person!!! I’ve been in love with her pieces and trying to track her down for over a year, and I finally succeeded, got to meet her and her rep and chat a ton, and bought so much stuff that I got a freebie item worth $40 thrown in from the venue’s gift shop. Go figure! Anyway, now I’m all decked out in gorgeous swirly viney silver, I feel like an elven princess or something, and I’m quite a bit poorer bank-account-wise but richer spirit-wise. A very fruitful night, overall!
