On Sunday, June 29th, is Old Settler's Days in Wanamaker, IN. For more information visit: http://www.indyftlions.org/
Hope to see you this weekend!!
I decided to take my family to sunny Santa Monica, California! My husband lived in Marina Del Rey for awhile, so any chance he got, we would be headed back to California. Santa Monica and the surrounding communities are very kid-friendly, which is helpful when you have a 3 year old and an 8 month old. My 3 year old, Maddox, would adore Santa Monica Pier and the beach.
The shopping and dining in Santa Monica are to die for. Third Street Promenade and the Montana shopping area encompass all you could ever need when shopping. A 2-story Banana Republic and Anthropologie, a beautiful Pottery Barn, and several independent shops make you feel like you have arrived in a shopping mecca! All of this is in an open air environment that even husbands don't mind going to.
Dining: you will find almost anything you could possibly want. Award-winning restaurants, where spotting a celebrity wouldn't be unusual. Seafood, Ethnic, American, European, Asian! All groups represented in Santa Monica restaurants. There are even your normal chain restaurants for the picky eaters in the group.
Relax at one of the famous Santa Monica Beach Hotels after all of the shopping and eating you'll do. I know I'll be heading to the Spa.
After a thoroughly enjoyable time at the Spa, I would want to curl up and take a nap in a fabulous hotel room with views of the beach!
Finishing each evening with a good meal and a beautiful sunset would be perfection!
Thanks for going on vacation with me!!
My photograph, Tiny Flowers, is featured on this new treasury! Check it out!

I am so excited! This is my first piece of jewelry to be featured in a treasury. Last week was a good week for MadrinPhotography though. I was in 8 different treasuries!! I'm still in shock!

Also, I've been reading the comments left for the contest at http://babylyonstreasuries.blogspot.com . The overwhelming majority have said that both the Mermaid Necklace and the Aloha Necklace are their favorites. To the person(s) who buys one of these necklaces, I will include a free bracelet! Yes, I will include a FREE custom made bracelet to the person who buys either the Mermaid or Aloha necklaces. Mention this blog post in a convo to me and your bracelet will be shipped out with your order. Thank you!

June is the month for 15% off in both of my stores, MadrinDesigns and MadrinPhotography. Just mention this blog in a convo to me!
I'm gearing up for my first two shows, the Pennsy Trail Art Fair and Bluegrass Festival and Wanamaker Old Settlers' Days. Come see me at both on June 28th and June 29th.
This past weekend, I went crazy taking pictures and making jewelry. I made a whole tray full of jewelry. I've been very into pearls lately. I'll be listing those pieces later this week. The pictures I have already started to post to MadrinPhotography.
Off to take care of my other responsibilities, my children! Maddox wants a popsicle! Stay cool!
