Fort Lauderdale installed it’s first Better Block project on June 16, 2012, joining other cities across the U.S. in re-imagining their city streets. Though comprehensive planning projects are often necessary for developments, the cost, scale, and long-range timelines associated with these initiatives can often lead to a loss in project momentum. Instead, Better Block FTL aims to create quick, inexpensive, high-impact changes that exhibit permanent solutions for areas in Fort Lauderdale.
Welcome to my Tumblr! I've been creating handcrafted products for years because of my art background. This process and my knowledge in drawing, needlework and the fashion world of today has helped me develop a keen eye for combining materials, fabrics, shapes and colors in surprisingly fun and attractive ways. Those experiences enabled me to successfully create my own line of unique limited handcrafted handbags. My line is inspired by nature, distinctive and varied cultural influences and fanciful escapades. My work is a unique expression of color, joy, bliss and personality. I like to think about my bags as wearable art!
