OMG it got hotter! Grab some free VitaminWater from G40 tonight and this weekend to cool off. Below is a listing of the evening events and then the schedule for when the building is open. A good friend's piece is located on the second floor at the end of the hallway just past CON's train wall. Breaking a little ground for her. Check her blog for a picture of her wall. http://www.happy-accidents.tumblr.com. She also added a Rerun & Spray cans (one can, PureEvil is a collaboration with the mysterious Mar5) to the wheat paste room, as well as contributing some Old School Cameras to the Albus Cavus room & right out side the elevator (all available for purchase, just ask). Keep the comments coming.

All That Glitters: Laura Lee Designs Celebrates Fifth Anniversary at Finnish Ambassador's Residence

All That Glitters: Laura Lee Designs Celebrates Fifth Anniversary at Finnish Ambassador's Residence

It’s not every day that one gets an opportunity to celebrate a professional milestone at an ambassador’s residence, but Laura Lee Williams, owner of Laura Lee Designs, had the good fortune to do so when she celebrated five years at the helm of her handbag business at the home of Finnish Ambassador Pekka Lintu and his wife Laurel Colless.

“What an honor and gift to have the loveliest evening surrounded by advisors, supporters and dear friends,” says Williams. “The Finnish Ambassador and his wife Laurel Colless are supreme hosts and I couldn’t have asked for a better evening.”

If you’ve lived in the D.C. area for a while, you’ve probably heard of DeMatha, the Catholic boys’ school in Hyattsville, Maryland. And if you have heard of DeMatha, odds are that it’s because of the school’s nationally renowned athletics program, which has boasted such names as legendary basketball coach Morgan Wootten, basketball Hall of Famer Adrian Dantley, NFL Pro Bowler Brian Westbrook, and NFL broadcaster James Brown, to name just a few. To most with a passing familiarity with the school, DeMatha is synonymous with sports. When I told people that I attended DeMatha, I was frequently asked “What sport do you play?” My response of “I don’t play a sport,” was always met by befuddlement and a perfunctory “Then why do you go to DeMatha?”
