Ooooh what else. My mum was here all week, so I didn't do a lot of jewelry things, but I just got in a bundle of new drusy stones and can't wait to make rings and earrings galore tomorrow! I have mucho orders to catch up on, need to re-order business cards...oh, yeah, I went to a day long event called Buy Young on Wednesday, which was held at the Chamber of Commerce, Cap. Hill, and the White House! Kal Penn talked to us! It was crazy!
I was way out of my league, but Ben's friend is one of the amazing people who organized it, so I was lucky enough to go. So inspiring! It brought together young business owners from all over the country. I sat near the guy who started Wordpress, heard the founder of Gilt Group speak, and became day-long buddies with Todd of Toddland.com. I was completely drenched by a tidal wave from a cab driving by along with one of the designers behind Hysteric Haus (I literally had a mouthful of gross street water because I was screaming as the wave came crashing down. I wanted to die.) I hung out with the two gals behind the coolest butcher shop in LA, Lindy and Grundy. A press lady told me my sweater was inside out. You can see the back of my head at 00:30 in this CNN clip!
Anyway, it was a pretty wild day, I'll say that much. I didn't take many pics, but here are a few:
It ended with a reception on top of the Bank of America building! So many cupcakes and cups of wine. Also a great view.
John McCaine spoke. He was funny- said that after he lost the election, he slept like a baby- every two hours he'd wake up and cry. Ha.
A view from the fist Round Table event.
Not the best pictures.
Anyhoo, that's it! Cleaned up the work bench, completely cleaned up the living room. Fascinating, isn't it?
