Is Jenny Doh’s montra for her new venture, Crescendoh.  What a wonderful and oh so true statement.  I attended Jenny’s launch party last Friday night with about 200 of her fans, followers and partners in art.  We were greeted at the door with a complimentary glass of wine and these cool name tags.


Once inside, this incredible art quilt was on display complete with Sharpies for everyone to add their own thoughts and well wishes.


The venue was staged in a lounge vibe with sofas, cocktail tables, handmade centerpieces (of course) and mood lighting.  The tunes were spun by one of my friends, the FabUlous DJ Wanda.

Then the viewing of this truly inspirational video . . .

The event was just oozing with creativity.  Take a look at how Crescendoh design team member,  Tracy Schultz, used one of their canvas panels on a corset – simply FabUlous! 


Of course, there were photo opps; here I am with Melody Ross & my BFF, Lia.


At the end of the evening we were all presented with a goodie bag filled with lots of really cool products courtesy of the event sponsors.  Thanks Jenny for your inspiration and true devotion to ART.

A Tropical Charm Swap at the Island


A few weeks ago some of the local scrapbook girls gathered at Jackie’s beautiful home, better know as Hyland’s Island, for a tropical-themed charm swap.  We had great friends, yummy cocktails & food, FabUlous charms and even a few party crashers (the girls in the front of the pic are neighbors who heard a party going on and came on over!).


We started with a twist on the traditional white elephant gift and made one FabUlous charm that was plain-wrapped and set at the base of our Fire Goddess mascot. 


We proceeded to “steal” charms from one another until the last charm was opened.   Then we got down to some serious bracelet-making.  Take a look at this cool bracelet holder . . .

Since we had a small group, a lot of ladies made more than one charm so our bracelets were really full when we finished.  We also got a sweet surprise from Karen, owner of Scrapbook Oasis.  She dropped by and presented each of us with a cute gift bag containing 4 more charms!  Here’s some of the the finished masterpieces . . .

Before the night was over, there was talk of another swap.  Can’t wait!
