As we draw near the end of the month, if you’re unaware of — or have simply not taken then time/money to support — Movember, now’s the time to jump on the wagon before it’s too late! Movember is a month-long campaign for awareness and fundraising to benefit men’s health organizations. This year, I got involved.
Several of my friends and colleagues are avid supporters and directly involved with producing the wonderful events throughout Movember, so I had to find a way to contribute. My last post talks about a painting I donated to the silent auction at the Mo-Tie Affair earlier this month. But then I began making these fab mustache necklaces. PERFECT!
Keep Austin Stylish’s Joanna Wilkinson wrote a lovely post about my Movember necklaces, so read more about them and find out how you can get your hands on one of these eye-catching, money-raising, charity-supporting, health-encouraging totally awesome pieces!

This year’s annual Austin shopping event, the Armadillo, will debut many artists and musicians who represent a new generation of talent. All of the more than 161 artists and artisans will be showing their latest work. Thirty-one live music acts—first timers and longtime favorites—will perform over the course of the 10-day show.
My friend, and former studio neighbor at Starving Art Studios, Chantell, is participating as a vendor at Armadillo for the 2nd year, and is sharing her booth space with a clothing designer called the Animated Closet. So they have Kalei Doscope Aromacare and a fun, funky clothing line in one space, open til 11pm until this Friday, and that’s just one of the many, many booths. Another post with photos and interview from my visit to Armadillo coming soon.
