Posted on May 7, 2012

All photos by Jen Neitzel I Heart Art: Portland’s latest Mixer Match event was last month.  This was the first Mixer Match I participated in as a member of the Leadership Council.  I helped organize the event with Jen Neitzel and Deenie Wallace.  I had a great time and learned so much.

OVO – Cirque du Soleil

  I took this picture at the TEDxConcordiaUPortland rehearsal, the night before the big event.  Sitting in this near empty room, surrounded by planning team members finishing up last minute details such as putting name tags on lanyards, I was overwhelmed by all the greatness.  Attending meetings or working on projects at my house is one thing, but to realize that I am one part of this incredible event which is so much larger than...

This is the last big project I did for the TEDxConcordiaUPortland gift bags!  I wanted to contribute something to the gift bags, since I was in charge of coordinating them.  After much brainstorming, I settled on making buttons! I arranged for I Heart Art: Portland (Thank you!!) to sponsor the buttons.  At first I was going to borrow their button maker, but I’ve wanted a button maker for years and this seemed to be the perfect...
