My new blog adventure – Handmade in Portland – is 1 month old today!  I'm so proud of what Bettie, Diana and I have been able to accomplish.  We are such compliments of each other that everything we've done for HiP, so far,  has been very organic and seamless.  Yes, we are still getting our feet wet and we have so much to learn, but we are already meeting great artists in the...
