Arts + Crafts, Travel

Twig + Congratulations to Marisa!

August 9, 2007


I’m happy to see her branching out, it’s very exciting as I’ve been watching her work for some time now and enjoy seeing her progress, she’s becoming a brighter star in the art world all the time. Go Marisa! And the best part, she’s not a shooting star – quick in, quick to burn out and fade. She is steady, forward moving, and patient with her process and content with the truth that the best things in life are often attained one step at a time. I think this is one of the most important things to be comfortable with about your career, your health, everything really. Enjoy the ride, right?

So I’m happy today to see Marisa doing well and that Elizabeth from Twig is building her business and moving forward, too. Outside of Marisa’s print, Twig has other great things like some of the Orla Kiely Fall collection (drool) and a few things from her previous collections as well. I really like this travel bag because I need something like this for Fall. I’m still running around with the luggage given to me at my bridal shower 6 years ago and I’m sorely in need of a quick weekend bag in a perky print. It also has to travel well, and I’ve heard Orla makes a sturdy bag. How cute is this?


Bottom line: Shop Twig! This lady has a great eye and a beautiful selection. Thank you Elizabeth for writing to me.

    I have seen that bag in person, and it is indeed beautifully made! It’s definitely a real soft-suitcase for a vacation, not a weekender bag.

    Thank you Anna, I didn’t realize that! I wish it came with a shoulder strap, I have to inquire about this because I really prefer toting larger bags either via trolley or strap.

    Marisa – Really? August 10? Wow, that is amazing. Time has gone by quickly. I hope you come to New Hampshire next month, I will love to have a chance to meet you in person finally! :)

    I greatly appreciate the posting on Decor8. I’m so excited about the first Creative Thursday just for Twig. I hope it is the first of many!

    Thank you!

    ps – the bag is on wheelies. so if you load it up, you don’t have to carry it! : )
