I Heart Art: Portland – Mixer Match


Posted on May 29, 2011

Photo by Matthew Miller and PNCA My sis and I volunteered at the I Heart Art: Portland's Mixer Match a few weeks ago.  Here we are checking in the artists, gallery owners and superstars.  I had attended the first Mixer Match last year that was geared towards crafters and local shops.  It was a great event and I loved seeing crafters get signed to stores that night.       I was excited to...

  I'm so excited to announce that my Felt Flower Rings are now for sale at the NCNM Vis and Qi bookstore!  One of my big goals for 2011 was to get out there and market myself more.  This is just the first step on that road.  I am hoping to have an Etsy store up soon as well.         The bookstore received my first batch of 20 rings.  I've been making these like mad and just...

One of my favorite outings on this trip was visiting the Art Gallery of Toronto.  This amazing building was designed by Frank Gehry.  I was in awe of it's unique staircases and use of space.   The design created controversy when it was built, but I think it's beautiful!  The inside is gorgeous and some of the views you get are astounding! While the building is something that could be looked at for ages,...

 Christmas is now over for another year.  I'm finally starting to feel human again after the mad dash to get things ready and also attending all the social functions that happen this time of year.  I'm very fortunate that my work is closed the week between Christmas and New Year's.  It's giving me time to catch my breath, clean my house and to think about blogging again.   I celebrate...
