I really love all the pr Jessica Kizorek and her team of Badass Business Women are creating. I’m an artist/designer with a solid background in advertising and design so when the post came out for a chance to win a seat (and all the networking and photo/promo opps that come with it) in the exclusive, Badass Pink Limousine along with Jessica and her team, I knew my response had to stand out! Luckily, my creative muse was in high gear and after a mere 3 hours of production, tweaking and editing, I posted my comment along with a one-of-a-kind response. To get the full effect, see my winning entry here!
Have to go now… make sure the black and pink outfit is just right, hair, nails, makeup…
KNOW I’ll be carrying my Miami Beach, black leather trimmed, Art Deco, Pink (and black) Flamingo bag! It has the most amazing energy 😉
Here are my newest designs! (click image for larger view and scroll down to see this design in Ocean Blues or Tropical Greens and Fruity Orange)
And just in time to donate a matching set of the Art Deco Pink Flamingo Casual Tote Bag and Clutch Purse for the Silent Auction of my favorite non-profit arts organization, the Arts at St Johns. In case you haven’t heard (and if so it may be my fault, since I’m working for ASJ in the marketing/pr/design department) they are KICKING OFF their biggest project ever, the History of Miami Beach. This includes concerts, workshops, play readings, art exhibits, the Annual Talent Quest, Divine Debris and Glorious Trash, Common Roots and….it culminates on October 1, 2 and 3 with the premiere of an all-original production, Miami Beach – the MUSICAL! Artistic Director, David Kingery and Creative Consultant/Artist/Author, Deborah Weed are creating and producing the Musical. Carol Hoffman-Guzman, Founding Director of ASJ has been interviewing people for months in person, and on Facebook. There are over 1200 fans for the Miami Beach stories on Facebook and more people are contributing their stories every day!
The KICK-OFF Party is tomorrow night, Thursday, April 22nd at the newly renovated Art Deco Welcome Center on South Beach. (1001 Ocean Drive, Miami Beach. That’s right at the intersection of Ocean Drive and 10th Street).
There’s always a parking challenge on the beach, so below is a list of parking lots and garages within walking distance of the Art Deco Welcome Center:
