Mothers Day Reflections

Posted by Laura Moore on

On this Mother’s Day, I hope we get to put our feet up. I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking about moms and all of the roles we wear every day. It makes me feel thankful…but it also make me tired! One of my main roles is as a “Mompreneur,” and that is especially relevant on this holiday as it’s one of my busiest workwise, but also meaningful personally. How do I strive to maintain balance through it all?“Mompreneur.” It’s society’s word for us moms who are “female business owners actively balancing the role of mom and entrepreneur.” Society...

Count on it to go Wrong…and Right!

While wearing my “work” hat over the years, I’ve found myself in situations that have reinforced important “life” lessons. In particular, to count on the fact that something will always go wrong. And, conversely, if I remain calm in the situation and flexible on my feet, hopefully a lot of things will go just right. How did I put this learning to the test at two recent shows?

Much to my surprise, the First Lady of Maryland, Yumi Hogan, was featured on the cover in a beautiful aqua dress and... one of my necklaces! The stranger thing was that I don't subscribe to the magazine, it was misdelivered from my neighbor. I decided to contact the First Lady's office and find out how and when she acquired the piece. It turns out she purchased it about ten years ago through a mutual friend. She was very...

Local by Design is Open!

Posted by Laura Moore on

What's new you ask? A group of local artists have just opened a new store called Local By Design. Where is it? Downtown Annapolis right on Main Street. What? Yes. Really. This is the reaction we've been getting. Local by Design is located at 109 Main Street, right next to the town favorite O'Brien's Oyster Bar. This is a great location and a very exciting endeavor for me. I do over 30 art shows per year and the number one question I get asked is, “Where's your shop?” I lower my head and say, “Well... I do art shows, have...
