Posted on Apr 24, 2013

Karen and I have been friends since 1995. Her 40th Birthday party was last weekend. A month or so ago, she asked me if I would want to help her make a pinata of the Portland Oregon sign for her party. I think my exact words were “hells yes”.

I’ve been really excited to check out Hump Day Art Festival.

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...

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.
