Thanks, People mag!

What a way to kick off a long holiday weekend! Look for me today in People magazine in their February 2009 Stylewatch issue... this is really exciting! A few months ago People asked me to be part of a select group of Style Experts they'd chosen to  pull together a list of what's hot to make The Hip List. I praised handmade as being hot and mentioned a few of my personal favorites out there. They took my list and not knowing who would make the cut, I took a deep breath this morning as I opened the issue. Ta-dah! They mentioned my top three: Etsy, DaWanda, and Boston-based Simplemente Blanco.

It's great to be in People magazine because it is a completely new audience for me. I'm honored to be part of their panel of experts which includes: Melissa Lavigne, David Morrison, Ann Mack, Holly Brickley & Courtney Leeds, Amanda Freeman, Josh Kafka, Carolyn O'Neil, Helena Echlin, and Mia Kim.

Thanks, People mag!
