As I was happily pinning beautiful jewelry from the Sydney Jewellery School I had the melancholy thought that if my Dad had lived to see this new world of social forums, his frustrated desires to be a self-supporting jewelery artist could have been realized. The depth of knowledge available online, the sources for inspiration, and the culture of exchange and nurturing among the online artist community would have saved him from the isolation he felt living in rural America surrounded by those with little appreciation for craftsmanship, artistry, and creativity in general.
I think our connectivity is a blessing beyond measure. Social forums have opened the world to those who cannot for geographical isolation, disability, financial or other reasons reach out to others and find kindred souls and friendship.

My team threw a very creative home improvement wedding shower for us. Look at all the fun details they came up with to decorate! Thank you, Alise, for taking pictures. ;) Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen and sent us wishes for a happy future together. We appreciate all the time, effort, and great ideas. You made us feel very honored!
