Into the Deep: Museum of Glass

Go Into the Deep with this exhibition at the Museum of Glass! It truly felt like you were exploring the deep blue seas with the transparency and vibrant colors of the ocean.

Chihuly Bridge of Glass

The bridge is the gateway that welcomes people to Tacoma.
We wanted something unique in the world, something that
is full of color and offers a joyous experience to passersby
both night and day.

On Friday, May 13th I got to attend The Period Shop on Fifth Avenue. It was so amazing I did not want to leave! There was free ice cream, manis, a photo booth, product giveaways and merchandise for sale from women-owned businesses doing amazing things in the world. The shop was comforting and exciting!

The Period Shop was generated from a blog post by Sarah M.:

This led to a connection with U by Kotex who are doing The Period Projects. According to U by Kotex: Women have a lot of ideas about how to make things better when it comes to periods. Introducing The Period Projects, a groundbreaking series of projects inspired and led by real women like you who share our passion for change.

The Morgan Library & Museum

The stunning Morgan Library and Museum was the backdrop for the 2016 NYCMER conference. I had the pleasure of presenting a workshop in Mr. Morgan’s Library, and I wanted to share the eye candy that is the setting of the room. Enjoy the pictures and go visit The Morgan Library & Museum.
