Tuesday, December 4, 2007's Artist of the Month

Our Artist of the month is Ann Harmon!

Ann just joined in November. She lives in New Jersey with her husband and has two college-aged daughters. Ann has spent much of her career as a graphic designer and art director, but has spent the last 5 years as a special education teacher.

Ann' s specialty is her beautiful silver beaded bracelets. You never would have guessed what these beautiful bracelets started out as... Soda Top Tops! Ann's line of bracelets on is under "Fashion Accessories".

Check out her line of five different types of bracelets named for the woodland hues that have inspired the designs, Sweet Birch, Juniper, Chestnut, Cypress and Redwood.

Her favorite quote is by Marc Chagall. "Great art picks up where nature ends."

We are glad to have her on board!

Christmas Gift Wrap Contest

What do you do with your gift wrap on Christmas morning?
Do you throw it in a big black garbage bag and pitch it?

Did you know that the average American increases their waste by 25% between Christmas and New Years? That is enough to cover 45,000 football fields!
What can we do? Simple, You've Heard it Before - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

Tell us what you do with your Christmas wrapping paper after all of the carnage on Christmas morning. Do you save it for next years gifts? Do you pack your holiday decorations in it? Do you get creative with it?

Send your entries to We will choose some to include in next month's newsletter. Our favorite will be featured on and newsletter and will receive a $10 gift certificate. Submit as many times as you'd like. Good Luck!
