thank God for great friends

My two good friends Kristina and Amanda have been working on a few model photo shoots for my new website. Kristina is an amazing photographer and Amanda is a talented dancer.

One thing that is so important about selling online is the images. Photographing jewelry can be very tricky. It can also be hard for the buyer to get a feel for the scale of a piece or how it looks on the body.

Amanda is wearing the deco drop earrings. Stunning in black and white.

Amanda wearing my favorite hoops and matching pendant. Beautiful.

Much thanks to my girls! They are truly great friends.

so sad

This year we will not have a tree. :( We have both been so busy-we just don't have the time!

I LOVE Christmas though, and if I had a tree this year I would want these beautiful hand blown ornaments. So Fabulous!

It's Coming!!!

Hooray! Halloween is fast approaching! Here we are last year. As you can see we aren't messing around.

I'm putting everything aside this week to get ready for our 2nd Annual Massacre in the Alley. Lots to do- pumpkins to carve, treats to make, costumes to finish and an alley to decorate!

Dogs Are Cute

I'm sitting here tonight catching up on my blogs, I'm reading my friend Arielle's blog- Couch Cubicle, and she's posted a picture of her dog Jack (who is super cute) laying on her lap/laptop. I notice that her photo looks a lot like what's on my lap too. =)

In other news- there is a new puppy on the block! Here's Otter checking out the new pup Brody (so cute it's ridiculous) They are already best friends!

Brody looks just like a stuffed animal here but I swear he's a real dog.

Workin' It!

This week I've been inspired by my good friends Chris and Arielle who workout in the morning. Today is the first day of my new workout routine! I'll have you know I was up and at 'em at 5:15am! I recently joined a new gym and have been checking out the classes they offer. This morning was a weight training class. Which made me look kinda like this:Ok maybe not quite like that, but close!

wedding shoes

These are so pretty! But I'd want to spice it up with some color!
Just a quick peak at some cute images of wedding feet =)

I think I'd like pink shoes my self!

I've already ordered my dress, and I love it but... just look at these from Posh Girl Vintage. They are sooo pretty- it makes me want two dresses for the special day. Hmmm...

love birds

I know I said no pastels, but I am loving baby blue lately.

Just look at these two. Little blue love birds from Cotton Bird Designs so cute!

the new guy

So the other day I'm minding my own business watering my basil-Something looks a little strange, so I take a closer look- and see this!

Why hello little friend! It's so unexpected since I live smack dab in the middle of the city and the closest green space is three blocks away. This lil dude wanted some basil I guess =)

i'm a survivor

Just thought I'd let you know I survived Artscape! Whew! that was BRUTAL! Here is a image to help you understand what it felt like for three days. Pretty darn hot. On a lighter note I was glad to be a part of Artscape again this year. I did have a good time (in the crazy heat) seeing old friends, making new ones, selling some sweet jewelry, and will be there next year to do it all over again. =)
It would be great if JUST ONCE Artscape would feel like this:

Maybe next year?

people get ready

Artscape is right around the corner! (July 18-20- that's next weekend) Check out my table in the D.I.Y. section. I believe it is over by the DJ culture stage, so I'm hoping we'll be able to jam out while were chillin' in the booth. I always have a great time, super music, B-more's finest folks out n about and fabulous artists. What's not to love? Click here to see the D.I.Y. vendor line up.

the line up

I've been in hardcore production mode the last few weeks. These pieces are in various stages of completion. Almost ready but still lots to do. Wish me luck this weekend!

aw shucks!

I'll have you know that I have the best fiance in the world. Period. Dustin had an idea a while back to make lolojane T-shirts. We've been talking about it for months and how cool it would be, and how they could say different things on the when he got home today he had a special present for me! Just in time for Art Star this weekend.
Ta-da! AND it's with my new logo! We have my friend Stas to thank for that. Stas has been hard at work creating a new logo and web presence for lolojane . Next on the list:!

look at them berries

Check out my lil garden! Everything is growing so fast. This is the first time I've planted tomatoes and strawberries. We'll see how it goes, so far so good!

Rosemary, a first.

Basil, keepin it real.
Coleus, for "instant impact"

Salvia, for decoration

My tomato plant is beefin' up, I suspect Otter is munching on the leaves a bit though.

I'm Famous!

In this week's Examiner, lolojane is given a shout out!

I want to thank my girl Teri Kerns, who writes for The Baltimore Examiner, for mentioning lolojane in her article. Teri recently wrote a story on my neighborhood Butcher's Hill- the friendly neighborhood in B-more =) (which is true) The article was published last Friday, May 2.

Here's what it says: "Large spaces at affordable costs make Butcher's Hill a prime locale for artists...... For jewelry check out resident Laurel Lydecker's stuff at Nectar Boutique in canton Square or at"

Ok, so it's not a whole article on me but I totally appreciate Teri for including me and giving Butcher's Hill some love. Thanks Teri!

What's Up Now!?

It's Wednesday. My day off. Ahhhh, I enjoyed some coffee at my leisure this afternoon. I decided to "one up" my friends Arielle and Annie who always have awesome shots of coffee and delicious food on their blogs. Well look here girls!! I have a sugar bowl and creamer to match! Take that!


LinkToday I tried a Cliff Z Bar. Thanks to my Friend Arielle, I have been transported into a whole new realm of snack bars! (that are good for you but you can't tell) I think you must go out at once and try one for yourself- immediately!
