I’m am proud and honored for my printed leather fashion accessories to be invited to participate in a unique art and design 2-day event taking place in New Jersey this Saturday and Sunday.
Contemporary Artisan is a designer event which aims to “connect local Jewish communities with the young, evolving art scene in Israel. Introducing young talent, hearing their stories, understanding their artistic statement in a way that is currently limited to visitors to Israel who have access to the studios where these artists and designers work.”
The event will be offering for sale quality designer fashion and home decor, all made by talented Israeli designers. My line of printed leather belts, bracelets and purses will also be offered for sale.
Take a look at the event’s website and Facebook page to see some of the amazing designs in this special event.
And if you happen to be in the area – you’re welcome to visit!

Invitation for the second day – Sunday, September 21st, 2014:
Last August my sister moved to Cambridge MA. Moving to a new country is both exciting and difficult, but I think the hardest thing for her was when the cold snowy winter began. We hardly have any of those around here, so she was f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g!
Early March she announced she’ll be coming home for a short visit in April, and started counting the days to be back in warm weather.
Her upcoming visit happened to be only 10 days after her birthday, so my family and I started planning her a welcome home/happy birthday party with a warm summer theme in mind. Tel Aviv is already quite warm in April, but it is still a bit cold for the beach. We decided to bring the beach home and have a Summer Surf themed party – indoors :)
I had so much fun designing this party and my sister was just thrilled with everything. If you want to have your own Surf themed party, here are some ideas of what we did in ours (you can find all the printables for this party here).
My husband baked this wonderful cheesecake. I turned it into a “beach cake” using printable decorations, and the crumbles represent the sand :)

The whole theme was designed in gradient pinks, oranges and turquoise, so these ombre drinks seemed like a great fit:

Another one of the deserts was a Banana Palm Tree fruit salad:
We used shaped cookie cutters to make these cute cheese bites:

The table was covered with two maps: sandy yellow and light blue – to create a “beach scenery” for the food and drinks:
Sea Horse and Flamingo party toppers
Turquoise napkins completed the design:
Decorated utensils with matching napkins
Food was decorated with colorful toppers matching the overall design:
Beach themed circle toppers
Sunglasses party toppers! Aren’t these the cutest? :)
Starfish printable decorations
Surfing cupcake toppers
This is such a fun and colorful theme, I’m sure it can be done in so many creative ways. What would you do in your own Summer Surf party?
