I bought these two Chicken paintings a little while ago at First Thursday.  The guy that sold them to me was so nice.  I can’t remember his name, which is too bad because I would love to give him all the good press that I can.  He was so friendly and didn’t mind that I had to look at every single painting to make sure that I got the ones that I really wanted.  I’ve seen him at Last Thursday as...

A few years ago I managed the East-West Cafe in SE Portland.  It was a super small cafe owned by the East-West College, which is a massage school.  I loved slinging coffee (If I ever win the lottery, I’m going to work part-time as a barista).  The best part of the job was the great and loyal customers I had.  Probably the most loyal of all were Gregg and Gail.  They came in every single day for coffee...

I was looking around on Etsy today to see what people are selling there.  I like the idea of a craft place for independant people can sell their work.  Ebay is so overwhelming, that it’s nice to have an alternative.  I came across LingGlass.  She does amazing work.  I’ve made pendants sort of on this order, but she has great original ideas.  It’s inspiration to see her work.  Her...

Last night I went to the book release party for Super Crafty at the Doug Fir.  These women are really an inspiration to me.  Four women got together and started a craft web-site.  From that a book was created.  I visit their web-site all the time.  They have great information in their link section about starting a business.  It’s so helpful to have all of these web-sites in one concise area. The...

This weekend my mom, niece, and I will visiting the West Side Portland Open Studios.  I’ve never done this before, but it looks like a lot of fun.  You purchase a calendar ($12 bucks for two adults, children are free) which is your admission ticket as well as the map to all of the studios. Jody Katapothis, a friend of mine, was part of the East Side Open Studios last weekend.  She was also recently showcased on...
