I have always been fascinated by the events and goings-on at Inspirador . These gals always know how to put together an event….  

Last month the theme was BRING ON SPRING (see a collage of images below from the evening from the very cool photography skills of RHONDA LEWIS http://www.smalldarkspaces.com/ )  More pics from INSPIRING Open Houses and cool photographers you’ll want to know are on the way!).  For now don’t miss tonights special open house themed: ROCK THE PARTY.  Consider doing something GREEN and ECO-COOL for your next event…it’s SO EASY and even the littlest touches help make a difference.  Call the Inspirador Celebration Team to RSVP and learn more about Inspiring Open House Tours!

I will be at my Tempe office May 7th -May 12th.Should be a great trip! During my “downtime” I’ll be checking out The Art Walk in Chandler. Looks like it’ll be great fun! Take a look…

This month’s featured artist has made it way cool to be environmentally conscious! Join us during this coming 1st Wednesday Art Walk in Downtown Chandler to experience unique “upcycled” (*see below) artwork by local artist, Sandy Schimmel-Gold. Sandy creates an under-painting, and then carefully places a mosaic of junk-mail and greeting cards she has received over the years—so environmentally conscious!

Also, we will be hosting a wine tasting of some of our boutique wines selected by our fabulous in-house wine expert, Tonya. Ask Tonya to help you select the perfect wine for your Mother’s Day dinner….OR pair your wine with some amazing Vosges chocolate, available at Inspirador. A selection of Vosges Chocolates and gifts are 40% off during the show and an incredible gift to give…don’t miss out!

What: Art, Wine & Chocolate

Where: TRYST Art Gallery @ Inspirador

When: Wednesday, May 7th 2008 5-9pm

Contact: Amy Marvin, Creative Director 888-638-2671

“Upcycling”

The term Upcycling was coined by William McDonaugh and Michael Braugart in their book on ecologically intelligent design, Cradle to Cradle.

Upcycling is the practice of taking something that is disposable and transforming it into something of greater use or value.
