World Domination Summit


Posted on Jun 3, 2011

The World Domination Summit is finally here!  I’m very excited to volunteer at this event and to meet lots of interesting folks from around the world.  I went to the volunteer orientation last at the Portland Art Museum – where most of the summit will be held.  Everyone was super and friendly and I’ve already made some new friends.     The World Domination Summit is the brain child of Chris Guillebeau...

  I vacationed in Central Oregon last week.  I wrote more about my adventures and have lots of photos on That Jolie Girl Walks.  This post is creating panoramas with your iphone. As you know, I’m pretty in love with Hipstamatic.  I get so wrapped up using that app that I forget use some other great photo apps on my iphone.  360 Panorama is a 99cent app that lets you easily take panoramas.  Instead of stitching flat pictures...

Book Project


Posted on May 9, 2011

 The other day I was looking at my bookshelves trying to figure out what to read next.  I'm always getting new books from Goodwill and usually have a revolving door of books.  This time I looked behind those newer arrivals to see books that have been permanently hanging around.  I decided to pick 10 classics that I had owned for a very long time, but had never gotten around to reading.  I also made my...

Meylah Store


Posted on May 6, 2011

  I wanted to create a store front to sell my Felt Flower Rings.  I just assumed that I'd go back to Etsy.  Etsy is a great option for a storefront, but I wasn't too thrilled about using it.  Etsy has changed a lot since it first began and now it feels like you have to play a certain game to be seen.  I just have a hard time buying into that.  All I want is a small store to show what I...
