Variety is the spice…

Posted January 30th, 2013 in Uncategorized by Mimi

The weather here on the coast of Maine this winter is certainly demonstrating that variety is the spice of life. Last week we barely got out of the single numbers, and today and tomorrow we’re flirting with 50 degrees. I’m sure there’s lots more real winter weather to come in the next couple of months, but I’m certainly enjoying this current respite from the deep freeze.

Here in the office, variety is also spicing up the workday. I’m currently completing a brochure and show-booth banner for a Maine boatbuilder, a brochure for a spectacular coastal campground, and new labels for a variety of food products offered by a local restaurant. I’ve recently finished writing website text for a company that creates wonderful natural, organic skin oils in the south of France, and am creating an ongoing blog detailing the voyage of a 90-foot motor yacht heading from the Caribbean to the South Pacific to spend the next year exploring and chartering in French Polynesia, Fiji, and Tonga. For AAA’s Northern New England Journey magazine, I’m working on an article on the butterfly garden in Southwest Harbor, which — along with the South Pacific blog — is definitely providing a vicarious escape from wintertime.

Jewelry for Christmas!

Posted December 16th, 2010 in Uncategorized by Mimi

There’s still time to choose a piece of jewelry from my current collection as a special Christmas gift. I am also taking custom orders through tomorrow afternoon (December 17). My most popular new design this season is the hammered hoop with South Seas shell pearl and small amethysts or other stones wired in the center of the hoop. These are available as earrings and also as a pendant on a chain, in both sterling silver and 14-carat filled gold.

On Christmas morning I really enjoy thinking about all the ladies opening boxes with my designs inside. I hope they all love their gifts!

Heading to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show

Posted December 1st, 2010 in Charter Yachts by Mimi

December has arrived and that means it’s time for the annual gathering of some of the world’s most spectacular yachts at the famous charter yacht show in Antigua (

Some 125 yachts ranging up to 289 feet (Maltese Falcon) in length will be lined up stern-to on the docks ready to dazzle the charter brokers and encourage them to recommend them to their clients. I’ll be meeting with current and future clients about brochures — both digital and printed — and email blasts that help them stand out from the fleet and increase their charter bookings.
