I’m super excited to share this project that I helped put together for the TEDxConcordiaUPortland event on March 31st, 2012.  When the planning team was brainstorming on what we wanted to put in the gift bags, we came up with the idea of having a thank you card in each bag.

  At the end of last year, I joined two committees.  I decided that since I wasn’t going to sell in 2012, volunteering for organizations that I love would be a great way to stay connected to my community.  Now I’m on the planning team for TEDxConcordiaUPortland!  I’m thrilled to be helping them this year.  I attended their inaugural event last year and I was so impressed with everything.  From the speakers to...

  Tomorrow is the big show and I think I’m ready!  I got up first thing this morning and made a list of the last minute things I still need to do.  Luckily, it’s not a very long list.  One of the nice things about being a bit (ok, a lot) panicked is that I’m definitely prepared.  My stuff has been packed for a week.      We belong – postcard from Little Canoe, Cat ornament – Stubborn, Spring...

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...
