    Grin ** I'm Back!!!**

    Hi Ladies!!! jenn, ZG, BrS, Viva, stella! hope you ahve all been well.

    Wish you a very happy new year 2014.

    It has been almost a year and half ?! since i last came on here.

    Life has been insane....too many ups and downs...with more downs than ups!

    Anyhow, my love for bags has sustained me through it all
    Looking forward to catching up on the posts as and when i can.

    Ciao,
    fedup (Vidya)

    yes Jenn. Unfortunately the venture i had before with my sis, i terminated because of differences of opinion on family matters.

    I launched my own line like "Charvi Jewelry" in December 2012 (just over a year ago), and i have been very successful.
    My design style has evolved a lot and now i get pendants and special beads actually handcrafted by artists in Kathmandu, Nepal, Afghanistan, Thailand and more.
    I have a pretty decent regular customer crowd from Seattle, CA, UK, Australia, BUT i am looking to expand my reach.

    I have my own website now and my facebook page is doing pretty well. Check it out if you get the chance.

    all newbies around here? i don't recognize any of the names!!!

    Missed you guys. My friends group is totally clueless about anything designer and they think i am a bit nuts to spend money on MK stuff all the time.
    Like i told them...i work, i earn, i pay for it...so none of your business

    Z is still here. But yeah, a lot of new members. No one sticks around for too long though.

    Don't feel bad. I work with a ton of people that would absolutely die if they knew how much some of my bags cost. And I'm not talking thousands of dollars here (I don't have that kind of cash, LOL). We were having a discussion a few weeks ago about the new Coach outlet that opened here and they all thought $100 was too much to spend on a bag. Then they went on and on about how they doubted anyone would want to shop there. Well, the place has been packed with people ever since it opened! I haven't been able to make it there yet though.

    I hear ya BrS! How is $100 too much for a well made and stylish bag when they are selling yucky ones for 70-80 bucks in Khols and JCP??

    I fell in love with the new MK stockard boots when they came out this fall and DH told me to go ahead and buy it. My friends were horrified that i spent so much on a pair of boots, but once they saw it they conceded that the boots had 'the look'!

    Those are nice!

    Haha, I wish! I still have to finish my thesis. I was having some difficulties, but I'm still trying to move forward and I will hopefully get there at some point. I work 2 part-time jobs and neither gives me very many hours. So when I say I'm short on cash, I'm not kidding. LOL! I do like my one job, even though I know I won't be able to stay there forever. My ability to find a job when I do finish is questionable though. I have been looking for the past 2 years and there really isn't much out there.

    Yep, that would be correct. I'm interested in education and modifying behavior. There have been a few jobs that I applied for that involved public education. I didn't get any of them though. I also applied at the zoo, but I didn't even get called in for an interview. That job had to do more with educational interpretation (i.e. educational exhibits). This was quite some time ago. I haven't really seen anything since.

    Thank you though! I am hoping to get things finished this year.

    Do you still work at the same job? I thought it was environment-related. But I could be wrong. LOL!

    Yes, i am still at the same job...Urban Planner. My background is in Ecology and Environmental Sciences and then i did planning.
    Right now i do mainstream planning (zoning, land use laws etc.), but occasionally work on brownfield redevelopment and stuff.

    By modifying behavior, are you talking about special needs in public education?

    I'm not sure what you mean by special needs, but I'm interested in modifying people's behavior in regards to the environment. So it could be anything from recycling and littering to promoting eco-friendly things around the home.

    We're doing great! We just moved again, but we'll probably stay in this building for a while. I love it- such a good location in downtown

    I'm following your page on Facebook! Great pieces!! I especially love the multistrand beaded necklaces with ring accents.
