Christmas Present – Dork Art

Christmas Present – Dork Art


Posted on Jan 27, 2011

A few months before Christmas, I found a portafilter at Goodwill for a couple of bucks.  I instantly had a vision of what I could make Diana for Christmas.  She got a tattoo on her arm a year or so ago that she calls her Dork Badge.  It's the three most important tools she likes to have in her hand: a portafilter, pencil and a sewing needle.  After I bought the portafilter, the rest came together easily....

I'm neck deep in making paper flowers at the moment.  I'm really not doing much else since my cousin's wedding is almost exactly a month from now.  Since he's in Toronto, I need to mail off paper flowers to him soon!  So for now, all other activities are put on hold, so I can focus on this project.   I have had a constant companion while I make flowers.  Trilly is always by my side....

  I’ve decided that this year I’d like to focus on fitness.  I’ve signed up to walk a half marathon in May and will follow this training schedule. To help keep me motivated, I’ve decided to add photography to the mix.  I’ve started a photography blog called That Jolie Girl Walks.  Besides a place to keep myself accountable to keep training, it will also serve as a place holder for all the photographs...

  Now that Christmas is over, I've started production on paper flowers for my cousin's wedding in February.  I'm so excited to finally begin this project.  I did lots of research and tried to figure out as much as I could before diving in.  Since I have this week off from work, I figured this is the golden opportunity to get a big head start on making flowers.      I decided to...

Thanksgiving in Newport

Thanksgiving in Newport


Posted on Nov 28, 2010

  I spent Thanksgiving with family in Newport this  year.  Here are some of the highlights of my trip.     We went beach combing in Lincoln City.     We went to the Grease Sing-a-long.  The words were added to the 35 mm film and we sang our hearts out in very small theater with about 30 people in attendance.  Such a fun thing to do with the whole family.     We ate lunch at Newport’s historical...
