Hustlin and Boyfriends! This week!

There are two things happening this week in the Ocean Springs/Biloxi area that I highly recommend you attend!

Friday Morning Serial
Every Friday morning, the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio (GCCDS) hosts a community meeting of sorts called the Friday Morning Serial. Some amazing things have come out of these meetings.  This week, September 26 at 8:00 AM, I will be giving the presentation : How to Find Your Hustle.

Also this link is strangely mesmerizing!

While we are talking about the Friday Morning Serial, Lolly Barnes of Mississippi Heritage Trust will be speaking on October 3!  I have been working with her on a few projects over the past year, and I think she is just the bees knees!  Please be sure to come if you can!

Paper Doll Boyfriends
On Saturday, September 27, at 6:00 pm, The Ugly Green House is hosting an exhibit of Dena Cox's series of collages called Paper Doll Boyfriends.   Each of the 20 collages features her with a different "boyfriend" and what she imagines that moment in their relationship to be.  In addition to the great art, there will be food and drinks available.  Cocktail Movement will be serving up the sauce!!!!

Working Towards Dreams

It has been quiet on the Department of Design blog and facebook for a while.  I have been working. More importantly, I have been hustling, getting things done, making things happen and exploring this community and what I want my future to look like.

I have not answered that question, but I know I am heading in the right direction.  I am  using this blog, not only to document my work and life, but also to figure out how to accomplish my big ideas.

As for now, here are three things that are going on that I would love for you to be  a part of:

1)  Popsicle Movement!!!  

I have been making popsicles and selling them at events!  

 There are two events where they will be available this week!  

9/5/14 - Finally First Friday in Down Town   - Down town Biloxi.  I will be at the Pocket Park outside of the Gulf Coast Community Design Studio with the Women in Construction  on Howard Ave. 

9/6/14 - OS Arts and Antique Market at the Mary C.  I will also have my art here!

 2) OS Art and Antique Market at the Mary C.

I have been managing this market for a few months now.  This has been a wonderful experience!  I am happy with the way things have been running.  

This month on 9/6/14, I am excited to say that we will have two bands playing:  Razzoo (10am-12pm) and Ish (12pm-2pm).  Check out one of Ish's songs: 

 The event is free! Please stop by, and listen to the music! 

 3) Figure Drawing at the Mary C.

I have been managing the figure drawing group at the Mary C.  I have loved it.  I have always wanted to draw from a model, and never had the opportunity.  There are some really amazing artists in the group and everyone seems to be learning from each other. The group meets every Thursday night from 6-8:30 pm at the Mary C.  It only costs $15/session and you can pay at the class or visit the Mary C's Website to order online

I will be posting more of what I am up to over the next few weeks.  Please stay tuned!
