Classy Glassy!

I was SO excited when my boss asked me to design a line of wine glasses for Swoozie's! This was my first assignment to design custom products for the company that I love so much. It was amazing to see the designs come to life! After approval from our Buyer and Senior Designer, I sent the manufacturer illustrations of each design and they tranformed them into actual glasses. Here are some photos of the first batch:

When in Rome...

My dear friend Lauren, who is moving to Spain in January just started a blog to share the many upcoming adventures she will have in Europe. Just looking at her blog made me want one!! But what in the WORLD would I write upcoming European quests for me! Then, a very talented and inspirational co-worker, Emily suggested I start a blog or website to share my design portfolio. At first I thought, my very own website!, but after an hour or so of googling to figure out how to purchase a domain name, etc. I realized that A) any and every domain name I had in mind was already taken and B) My recollection of HTML class from college is sooo not up to par! So my friends, welcome to my blog, which is, so far, the product of insomnia. Please note that I DO plan to dress it up a bit...Enjoy!

P.S. I really don't like how the heading remains in that yucky burnt orange color...How do i change it to green?!?! HELP!!
