Whimsically White

Well, that was an interesting experience… Don’t think I will be trying my wordpress app again to create a blog post… I am not sure I am techie enough! Not sure what happened yesterday but I posted a few words and one photo! Sorry everyone! I think I fixed it pretty quickly tho.


Feeling Whimsical today…




















Enjoying the vintage medly of elements that come together in such a unique way…




















Love, Love, Love the white beads that almost look like milk glass..

¬†Can you see the almost cracked appearance of the beads… love the “well loved” look.

Might have to start a Whimsically White board on Pinterest!!! Are you on pinterest? It is so much fun!

Hope you have a whimsically happy day! Kris Lanae ūüôā

Bountiful Connections at The Handmade Market: The Creative Connection

I am so excited about this event approaching… When Jo Packham¬†and Nancy Soriano titled the event, The¬†Creative Connection, they hit the nail on the head. The amazing connections that were developed in a few short days last year will impact the futures of all who attended.¬† WOMEN – PASSION – BUSINESS are the sub headings of the event. Connections made with amazing women who have an intense passion and business knowledge.¬†The decision to¬†display my jewelry at The¬†Handmade Market is one the I will never regret.

I realize that the connection made at this event will impact my families future in amazing ways as we await the debut of my jewelry line with Demdaco/Silvestri¬†in Cycle 4, 2011… The story still amazes me. I must say how honored I was by the glowing compliments of clients as they browsed through my jewelry. A group of three adorable women were in my booth trying on jewelry…¬†One of them selected a necklace that was so fitting for her. She tried it on, decided to purchase it and I was drawn to take a photo of her. (I am not going to publish it because I did not ask for permission.)¬†It is humbling to have people talk about your joy, your art with such excitement.¬†One of the women commented, wouldn’t they be adorable holiday ornaments?? Now the statement, while a compliment did¬†initiate some thoughts running through my mind.

I totally remember how humbled I was by their enthusiasm! The following day, my new friend was back to purchase another necklace! I cannot tell you what it feels like to have someone return for another purchase! At the time, I had no idea who these three lovely ladies were that were ¬†wandering the Handmade Market… taking part in The Creative Connections Event.¬† About a week and a half after the event, I received an email from my new friend complimenting me on my jewelry and asking if I would consider a licensing agreement with Demdaco/Silvestri. I was floored!!

It is not  too late to attend The Creative Connection!

I will be displaying my jewelry at the MarketPlace. Friday September 16 from 1:30 to 9:30 pm and Saturday, September 17th from 10am to 6pm. The event will be held in St. Paul this year, click on the link for more info.

You never know who is shopping at the Market Place… last year Mary Jane Butters bought three of my necklaces as she was racing to her next event! It was such an amazing honor! Here is a photo of one of the necklaces! she purchased from me… wish I had a snapshot of her wearing it!


A few of my archive posts from the TCC are here, here and here.¬† I hope you can join us for fun shopping and many great connections this year! ūüôā Kris
