Scrambling for those last LAST minute gifts? I know I was this past weekend!My wonderful friend, Andrea, flew in from Philly for my birthday last week (how awesome is she to fly all the way to Asheville to celebrate my 25th…ahem…birthday), and on Saturday we ventured to Downtown Asheville to meet our lovely friend, Tressa, for lunch at Early Girl (delightful Tempeh Reuben…side note: the Tempeh Reuben must be the Unofficial Sandwich of Asheville…I swear, you can get this delish dish just about anywhere! Dang…is it too late to call Valet Gourmet and get them to deliver one from Rosetta’s right now??? Ok, FOCUS, FOCUS!!!). After lunch, of course I had to show off my work at Atelier! Shhh! There was an ulterior motive other then showing off my work… I needed a gift for my mom! I mean, come on…. You can only paint your mom so many paintings after first grade, right?! HA! Ok…about the gift… I can’t tell you what it was, just in case my mom booted up her computer… but it was an awesome little something something by Paige Smith-Duft… go check out her work at Atelier if you’re in the area! Ok, I’ll give you a hint…CARDINAL! Too sweet!
Now there is less then a week left until Christmas. Let the scrambling begin!
Ok, I’ll help you out a bit with your scramble. Well, I guess I only really give you a hand if you happen to be within driving distance of the aforementioned Atelier in Asheville (or there is one in Charleston, SC with another slew of wonderfully talented artists), or the spunky little boutique Joie de Vivre in Morehead City, NC or the lovely Artful Living Group talent-wonderland in Carolina Beach, North Carolina. Ok, so this is only partial shameless self promotion, as there are TONS of other wonderful, local, talented folks at these establishments.
And of course, if you don’t need the gift definitely and for certainly BEFORE Christmas, you can always visit my Etsy page and check out what I have going on in there! Wink, wink.
Ok…enough about me. Hope you all have a wonderful Festivus! Happy Holidays! Happy New Year!!! Hope to see you all in 2012!!!
