I (heart) NY

It is always a joy to visit one of my most favorite cities in the world. It is a city that has a pulse like no other. There are many, many, things I love and did but that might take a few posts. For now I will just showcase one of the best stores in NYC, and one that you have probably seen featured a lot before on blogs and magazines, the one and only TINSEL TRADING COMPANY. This is store that has all things beautiful and vintage and I'm talking about things I love, old flower millinery, old trims and lace, old ribbon, wonderful stuff like that. The best thing is this is all new stock. This is stuff that has been literally pulled from boxes, never used before. They had so many wonderful things and needless to say I will not tell you how much I spent. But I will feature some of the different projects I make with my loot.

I actually had a chance to run into someone I really admire. When I went in the store was quite empty and I saw two other women browsing around. One looked very familiar and it was none other than JO PACKHAM of Where Women Create Magazine. It is a Somerset publication and one of my all time favorite magazines. I chatted with her for a few minutes. She was really lovely and so delightful.
 My 3 Seniors graduating in April, I will miss them!
So from this blog post so far you probably think this was a glamorous shopping trip. That really is not the case. I actually took my 3 senior stage management students and we had a chance to meet NY professionals and see some Broadway theatre.

Yes, we did see the famed Spiderman heard about in recent news broadcasts. Many people have asked how it was:
My reply: I have no idea what it is about, I could not name one song, but the SET IS AMAZING! I never seen a set so intricate and complex. They have 8 stage managers and 10 stunt Spidermans! Yeah but don't ask me the story, I don't really remember it!

I could go on and on about NYC but I will not bore you. I think I might post about my Anthropolgie out of body experience. I do love that store, but alas that is for another day.

I wanted to post my OHOW winners:

#93 Lori Diane won the crown
#22 Kristin Dudish won the wreath
#169 Sunshine Shelle won the necklace (all the way from Australia)

Happy Creating!
