Creative Places, The Mission Statement and Craft Beer

Galleries, shops, storefronts, pubs - are all a reflection of their owners. The physical spaces of the mostly women artists where Compass Rose Design collections have landed are places of creative abandon, clever intuition, and endless possibility. I delight in the differing flavors of each - from urban chic to vintage elegance - each one is an experiential synergy of local creative forces worth entering and exploring.

Last week at the birthday party of an old friend - I met an awesome and incredibly stylish woman arrived fresh off her bicycle - named Helene - of Culture Consumer who is also a member of the Mission Statement in San Francisco. Lots of folks have recommended the Mission Statement to me - and all the stars aligned - and just a few days later, I met Estrella was dazzled by the assortment of amazing clothes and accessories. I am honored to be part of the collection at the Mission Statement. ! Estrella also has her own website for her Estrella Tadeo clothing designs and accessories - where you can see her art - a practical and contemporary but whimsical laboratory of artistry.

So in my other life - I am a brewer's wife and the president of a small craft beer company planning a production brewery. We're having our first public event serving homebrew on February 13th! Brian of is doing most of the leg work and is awesome.
