Landing on Plymouth Rock

The other weekend I was in Plymouth, MA doing some errands, and just had to wander over to find the historic site of Plymouth rock!  Although I didnt have anytime to experience Plimouth Plantation , I did take a stroll to find a replica of the Mayflower and some other statues and memorials for the Pilgrim settlers and Wampanoag Native Americans.

If you look carefully you can see 2 little bears on his pipe!

Of course it wouldnt be a trip to a coastal New England town without a visit to one of the ubiquitous antique shops!

Somerville’s Rock N Roll Yard Sale!

I’ll be doing one of my favorite shows from last year again this year, the exciting “Somerville Rock & Roll Yard Sale“!  Its fun, rocking good time! Its a great time to enjoy independent art, handcrafted items by local artists, and of course awesome live bands & other performances.  There will be alot of awesome music-related items for sale, as well as music being swapped (CDs, records, etc.), and just fun handmade goodies such as my MaJenta Designs items will be there too! 🙂  Should be a blast, hope to see you there!  I’ll be the booth with the fun Asian-inspired jewelry, purse hooks, mirrors, and other gifts!

Love is All Around

Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but we can still find love anywhere we look, if we try hard enough!  Currently, I’ve predominately focused all my creative energy into my Asian-inspired handmade jewelry line at MaJenta Designs, however, I definitely want to get back into photography someday.  I just love taking photos of scenic and natural landscapes, and recently have wanted to start searching for things that are heart-shaped, after being inspired by my 2009 calender from the “American Heart Association.”   However, I found some great Etsy sellers that already have amazing photos of hearts found in nature.  Below, are just a few of some of my faves!
