I forgot to post these yesterday. A few surprises we found in our yard when we arrived home. Tomatoes! It is so fun to go out in our backyard and pick some of the yummiest tomatoes that I've ever tasted. I am constantly surprised by all of the different flowers here in portland. In the one week that we were gone this succulent grew upward and then flowered. So beautiful I had to share!

Colorado vacation

I've just returned from a week long vacation in Frisco, Colorado. We were there for Brian's family reunion. I had a really great time meeting all of his family and learning the history of the Nally's. The scenery was also unbelieveable. I think one of my favorite times during the trip was riding the ski lift in breckenridge up to about 11,000 feet and then hiking up another 2,000 feet to find snow for brian's nephew. There were so many colorful wildflowers on the hike up. We finally found snow, but had to hurry back down because of a storm that was coming our way. We did make time for a snowman though!

mod : press

I can't believe I haven't mentioned this! I was so excited to see it was posted. I got a really nice write up in the Portland Mercury's fashion blog MOD:Mercury on DesignI love everything about the article that Leanne wrote. She even mentioned the summer deals that I have going on throughout the summer. And I am in love with her clothing line - Leanimal. You can see her 2007 spring, summer + fall collections online. I have never seen so many unique and really surprising details. These 2 are my favorites!

It's Monday!

It was a fun and exhausting weekend with the 2 shows. We had our friends Cara + Kelly in town all last week so that might have had something to do with the being tired part too! We did alot of exploring while they were here. I love this picture of Cara + I at Netarts Bay. And me and my love! CRAFTY WONDERLAND was a lot of fun yesterday! I introduced a new item that I have been working on and it was a success! It's a pin that in a way reminds me of a merit badge. I've created them using my images and varying fabric and ribbons for each pin. I can't wait to make more!

Winedango + Crafty Wonderland

I'm happy to be participating in 2 events this weekend. I'll be selling my jewelry of course...but I've also been working on a few other things to add to the mix! Come say HI if you're in Portland!

SATURDAY, JULY 7 WINEDANGO at Urban Wineworks, 1-5.

I am super duper excited about the adult snowcones and really nice jazz by 12th Avenue Hot Club. It should be a fantastic afternoon! IT'S FREE and it's going to be a nice day! (the event is outside) Here is the official write-up below.

*** Get your "django" on at Winedango, a great way to spend your Saturday afternoons in July (1-5 PM). Listen to D'jango style jazz by The Twelfth Avenue Hot Club. Have fun making a tie-dyed T-shirt when you buy three bottles of Bishop Creek Cellars wine. Meet local artisans and save room for adult snowcones. ***

SUNDAY, JULY 8 CRAFTY WONDERLAND at Doug Fir Lounge, 11-4.

IT'S FREE too and they always have a fun free DIY table! You can see the other vendors participating too!
