A Huge Holiday Thank You

As the year 2009 winds down, I want to take a moment to extend a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported me in this little venture! Lofted Designs has experienced tremendous growth this year, and none of it would be possible without the support and encouragement of friends, family and fans.

Thanks to each and every one of you – whether you made a purchase (or many!), shared kind words of encouragement (in person or on Facebook), showed up to a craft fair to show support, stocked my creations on your store shelves or just admired my work from afar, you are all a very important part of what I do. So, thanks!

I couldn't be happier to share this little map illustrating the towns and cities I've shipped packages to in in the last two months. Exciting, right?! I get all giddy when I think of the dozens of people who will be receiving my jewelry this week!

Happy holidays! Happy New Year! And thanks a million!

Dover Is The Place To Be

Looking for a great place to get your holiday shopping all wrapped up for the season? Then make your way to Dover, New Hampshire this Saturday, December 12th!

First stop: Holiday Open Studios at One Washington Center & The Picker Building (that's the sweet old mill building near the covered bridge). Inside, you'll find dozens of open artists' studios, as well as many other artists and craftspeople set up in the common areas. I'll be there with lots of fresh, new Lofted Designs jewelry for all the people on your shopping list and dog and cat tags for the pets on your list. (10am - 5pm)

Next stop: Lucy's Art Emporium at 303 Central Avenue (across from La Festa). Daisy Adams just opened this adorable little boutique and is celebrating the official grand opening this Friday and Saturday. Stop by to pick up some truly unique gifts (Lofted Designs jewelry, plus paintings, plush, prints, pins, purses and much more). There will also be tasty treats provided by Kate's Designer Delights, a free greeting card with every $15 purchase (while supplies last), and a raffle for one of Daisy's original paintings! Definitely all worth stopping in for. (Mon-Sat 10am-6pm / Sun 11-6)

While in town, don't miss the fabulous Silver Moon Crêperie (20 3rd St., next to the old Strand Theatre), one of my favorite dining establishments in the whole world. Try one of their sweet or savory crêpes (I recommend the fresh apples & brie crêpe!), or stop in for some hot mulled cider to warm up while shopping downtown. (Saturdays 10am - 3pm)

See you over in Dover!
