the art of presentation

As long as I remember I have loved the simple act of taking the extra step. I take great delight in giving just a little extra.....in my gifts, in my work, and now I carry it along with me into the world of teaching.
Just this last summer, the managing editor of Belle Armoire Jewelry, Christen Olivarez, graciously requested an interview from myself, and a dear artist sister, Colette Copeland, of A Bird in the Hand.
Collette is that type of an artist, and her work reflects it. Upon my request, she made the most beautiful jewelry folders to pair with my jewelry.
We collaborated on a submission sent to Stampington called sisterhood. It was featured in the winter issue of the magazine that came out December 1st. What an especially sweet blessing.
Thank you Christen!Once again, as I prepared the brass charms, bronze wire, and extra goodies going into the bags of the students taking my Resolutions of the Heart class this next Saturday, I thought about ways of adding that extra touch....something really special.I think they will be pleased.

It was a great article and the necklace was gorgeous - sigh!; wonderfully enhanced by the "envelope" (thank you again, Cindy for sending me the issue)! And those goody bags look wonderful.
