Cancellation with a Side Order of Snowstorm

It was a great idea, but not all great ideas are meant to be. With heartfelt thanks to my co-conspirators, I’m bummed to announce that Sip. Shop. Love. an’t gonna happen. We lost our space and couldn’t find a suitable alternative in the time we had. A special shout out to Dana Hensley at Catskill Mountain News, who tried valiantly to get us set up in new digs, and Jessica Sweeney Olenych of Home Goods of Margaretville, who demonstrated true community spirit and support. Thank you so much, ladies! While it’s disappointing to cancel an event, the silver lining is discovering just how awesome the local business community can be.

So here I am, back at the studio, with heaps of gorgeous bracelets, necklaces, and earrings all ready for a Valentine’s Day event. The snow is blanketing my mountainside studio in silence and softness, and I’m bending, twisting, and wrapping away. Making beautiful things for people to wear is never a disappointment. There’s always next time.
