The Party Report

Sorry for the delay on the Penny party report, it was a busy weekend with an out of town shopping trip Saturday and a fun filled Easter Sunday, by Monday I was practically comatose! But better late then never! Penny’s party was phenomenal! She recently did some renovation on her house that resulted in a beautiful light filled showplace that was the perfect setting for the Exalted Beauty Medallion display. Her extensive group of fabulous guests consisted of a few familiar faces but also many new faces that were very enthusiastic during their introduction into the cult of the Exalted Ones! (Er what? They really dug the necklaces, bought MANY and plan to book/attend more Exalted Beauty Medallion parties in the near future). Penny’s appetizer and beverage offerings looked and smelled magnificent (including Lynn’s famous dip!), but I was kept so busy I was unable to even stop for a drink until the crowd finally dispersed. It was a hot and sweaty good time with lots of laughs and juicy gossip, but the thing the readers of “The Party Report” want to know most is – what SOLD? It is apparent that Spring has fully entered the general consciousness as the dominant color trend of the evening was the Dark Citron and the new Flourish pieces were the top seller. Divinity came in second, followed by Oracle, Mindworks, followed by an even scattering across the collections. However, as pleased as I was with the new Reliquary collection, I was very surprised that it wasn’t a larger hit with this group. Prophecy was one of my most popular *remake* requests, so my response was to create Reliquary which is sleeker, more granite looking and less physically textural then Prophecy, but still similar in essence. I absolutely love how the Reliquary finish came out and I'm thinking it will become more popular around Fall because of the copper edging – the Exalted Ones tend to go for gold tones in Spring and Summer and the red tones in Autumn. I guess that is all for The Party Report! I’d like to say a great big thank you to The Mr.’s, Lynn and Penny for all their hard work in making this event happen, I am unbelievably appreciative! Penny’s party was a great success! Looking forward to the next one! You ladies *betta booka*! In the meantime, check the Exalted Beauty Medallion catalogs to see if your favorite pieces are still available!

Easter Eggs

I also became imbued with the spirit of Easter and decided to decorate some of my own Easter eggs:



After all that work the Mr. thought they looked like foil covered chocolate eggs… I guess they do. Oh well! It was fun! It brought back good childhood memories. Hope you all had a great Easter!

Easter Morning

Here is a shot of Mr. C Easter morning before the sugar high hit:



He looks a bit sleepy at this point and hasn’t fully realized his joy over the goodies the Easter Bunny brought. It evolved into a great day filled with egg decorating, cup cake baking and feasting. A good time was had by all.

Kite Flyers

Here are my Mr.’s out enjoying a breezy spring afternoon, flying a kite:



It has been a rough week at the Exalted Beauty household with both Caden and I coming down with an evil bout of the stomach flu; but we are well on our way to a full recovery and grateful that the sun finally decided to grace us with it’s healing presence. As for the catalogs, they were inevitably delayed, however I am unbelievably thrilled to report that all three new collections, Divinity, Reliquary and Flourish are now completed and will be ready and available at Penny’s Medallion party tonight! Miracles never cease! I’m really looking forward to a fun night out with the Exalted Ones and I’m very excited to see everyone’s *in person* reaction to the new collections! The photos just don’t do the deep luminescent finishes justice (If I must say so myself!). But stay tuned, the new Exalted Beauty Medallion catalogs will be posted for your perusal next.

Flourish Bronzed

Here is a closer look at the NEW Exalted Beauty Medallion collection “Flourish” in progress, now layered in bronze:



Next step, color and sparkle! I’ll be including Honey Beige, Burnt Sienna, Pearl White and Sequin Black to the glaze choices for this collection as well as Swarovski Crystal centers.

Progress

The Exalted Beauty Medallion collections Divinity and Reliquary are now beaded:





And currently being photographed for the catalogs; these two collections will most definitely be ready in time for Penny’s Medallion party on April 10th. I will present the finished Divinity and Reliquary catalogs early next week!

Puzzling Situation

Here’s Caden expressing some frustration over Tonka’s desire to help with his puzzle this morning:



What can I say? The cat’s a genius!

Face To Face

Here’s a photo of a yearling taken through my front door:



The photo I wish I had caught was the moment two seconds after this when her brain acknowledged someone was watching her. The poor deer was minding her own business, chomping away, only to glance up at me looking back at her. She was so startled that she took a flying leap off the bank that would have put Santa’s reindeer to shame! So much for my dreams of becoming Snow White…
