Walking Through 2012

Walking Through 2012


Posted on Jan 6, 2012

I decided that in 2012 I’m going to focus more on my walking blog.  I started That Jolie Girl Walks last January as a project to get me walking more.  It worked.  I love the combination of photography and walking. The main goal is walking, so I take pictures as fast as possible.   I  love the simplicity of this blog.  I decided to only use one Hipstamatic setting (Pistil film, John S lens) on my iphone, because I liked that...

Capitol Hill Holiday Market 2011

Capitol Hill Holiday Market 2011


Posted on Dec 15, 2011

This Friday and Saturday, my sis and I will be sharing a booth at the Capitol Hill Holiday Market.  This is the first year that Capitol Hill school has held a craft fair and my sis is one of the organizers. This craft fair will be much smaller than Crafty Wonderland (which was fab and I hope to blog about it soon!) which I think will be nice change of pace.  This the last craft fair of the season that I will be participating in.  I...

My craft bucket list is a mile long, but this weekend I get to check a huge item off of this list.  I will be selling my felt flower rings, barrettes, and earrings this weekend at Crafty Wonderland! Ever since the very first Crafty Wonderland in the basement of The Doug Fir, I have wanted to participate in this amazing event.  I’ve applied many times and this year I was finally accepted!  They receive so many applications from...

My Sis Turned 40!


Posted on Oct 10, 2011

My sis turned 40 at the end of September. Her best friend and I threw my sis a party last Saturday to celebrate the beginning of this new decade.  My sis requested a special cocktail that she had tried on her last visit to NYC called Bee’s Kiss.  I had never heard of this drink, but was happy to comply to her wishes.  I had found many recipes online and went with the version below. Bee’s Kiss: 1 shot light rum 1 shot dark...

Hello Etsy – Gratitude Abounds!


Posted on Sep 19, 2011

  Saturday was the Hello Etsy: Portland conference focused on small business and sustainability.  I was so glad for this day to finally be here!     As you know, I put all of the program journals kits together for this event.  I didn’t sleep at all the night before the conference, because I was so worried something unexpected would go wrong and the journals would be a disaster.  Thankfully, this was not the case....
