I've been a busy bee ... packing up all of the pre-orders that have come into CRESCENDOh for Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration


With each copy, I've signed it and packaged it with all of my sincerity ...

... including a hand crocheted hemp flower on a stamped tag. It makes me so happy that folks who receive the book will receive what has sort of become an icon for all-things-crescendoh ... a crocheted piece of goodness that you can make into a necklace or add to your art or just keep in its bag. 


To celebrate this amazing new book, my dear friend, Bonzie from Ireland, is joining with me on this giveaway. Bonzie's studio space graces the cover of this fine book and her designs are one of the most breathtaking that you will ever see.


For this giveaway, you will receive a signed copy of Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration from me, along with a crocheted hemp flower, and this one-of-a-kind cuff created by Bonzie.

Whether you wear it with a gown or with jeans and tee, it's the perfect art accessory that will have heads turning. And when you're asked,"Where did you get the cuff?" you cay say, "From Bonzie, fashion designer from Ireland, and cover artist for Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration."


To qualify for this giveaway, please leave evidence that you were here no later than 4:00 PM, Saturday, March 20, 2010, PST. The winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Sunday, March 21st.

CRESCENDOh will start to shipping all pre-orders so that they arrive to you no later than April 1st. All copies will come signed and with a FREE hand crocheted flower. And like all merchandise from our shop, a portion of proceeds from Where Women Create: Book of Inspiration will go our Charities of Choice.

This is the dress I wore last night ...


As Gerardo and I got all gussied up to attend the gala dinner for Orange County High School of the Arts (OCHSA) — the charter school where our daughter Monica attends.

"Ticket to Ride" was the theme ... and I have to say that the student performers, along with some OCHSA alumni, all under the direction of OCHSA faculty and staff and school director, Dr. Ralph Opasic, did a phenomenal job.

IMG_6706It was especially fun to invite our Monica to join us ... her very first gala event to support her school. 

IMG_6705By the end of the night, I was freezing cold ... as always. And so on the way to the car, Gerardo gave me his coat to wear. He always does this for me ... and every time I wear his coat at events such as this, I feel like I'm a teenager with a steady whose class ring I should wear on a chain, close to my heart.

It's the day after the event at my house right now. Kids are doing their homework, the laundry is going, the kitchen being tidied up. 

And Monica just took a break from her homework to pick the winner of our Giveaway #2 for Michael deMeng's book ... and the winner is ... Courtney, who posted her comment on March 13th at 8:04 AM. OK Courtney, you know the drill ... please send us your mailing address to: mailbox@crescendoh.com.

Happy Sunday. :)
