Scared   My niece turns 17 today!  17.  Wow, it just seems like yesterday that I was in the delivery room watching her come into the world.  My niece is becoming an incredible lady.  She is smart, talented and pretty darn cute too.   Curious   This year she was bit by the photography bug and I couldn’t be happier.  Amazingly, she is taking photography from the same teacher I had in high school.  I still take...

  Last Saturday, my husband and I went to see the Dharma Bums play at the Doug Fir.  Anyone who was around Portland in the early 90's knows how big and beloved this band was.  They hail from my husband's hometown and toured all over the world.     In the past year or so, they have gotten the band back together and have been playing sporadically. We've saw them months ago at the Crystal...

In my continued quest to re-define That Jolie Girl and how it will co-exist with my other blog adventure Handmade in Portland, I've decided to take Sister Diane's Blog Tune-Up class.  This is 3 week online class that started today!  I've already received my first lesson that I'll read later tonight.  I've been wanting to revamp this blog and this seemed like the perfect way to do it.  I know...
