I've been thinking a lot over the past couple of months about the future of That Jolie Girl.  I'm so happy to be a part of Handmade in Portland and at the moment it's taking almost all of my attention.  I really think that Bettie, Diana and I have started something great and I can't wait to see where this adventure takes us.  But what does that mean for TJG?  I think the natural thing to do is...

Pack Rat Fever

Pack Rat Fever

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...

Here are some panoramic shots from my vacation. They are easier to look at if you click on the individual photos.  I'd like to learn more advanced photos stitching software like Hugin to make these images even better, but for now I'm using to Windows Live.  I'm not thrilled with it, but it was fast and easy.  ...
