Hello Etsy – Gratitude Abounds!

  Saturday was the Hello Etsy: Portland conference focused on small business and sustainability.  I was so glad for this day to finally be here!     As you know, I put all of the program journals kits together for this event.  I didn’t sleep at all the night before the conference, because I was so worried something unexpected would go wrong and the journals would be a disaster.  Thankfully, this was not the case....

Hello Etsy: Portland

Hello Etsy: Portland is tomorrow!  I’ve been so excited to attend this sold out conference geared towards the small business owner – not just crafters.  The schedule of speakers is top notch and I know I’m going to learn so much. A few months back, my good friend Jen Neitzel (co-chair of Hello Etsy) asked if I would be willing to prepare all the materials for the “make your own conference program journal”.  These...

Musicfest Northwest – Day 4

  Saturday, we found ourselves again at the Crystal Ballroom.  We first had sushi in the Pearl and then walked over to stand in line to get in.  The line was around the block, but when the doors were about to open, I walked up to see if folks with wristbands had to wait in that line. Nope!  There was a second line for people with wristbands and I was the first in that line.  Fun!  This night, I...

  We used mass transit on day 3 of MFNW.  I felt bad for not busing to the Crystal or Doug Fir, but quite frankly it's a very super quick drive to both of those for me.  Busing would have required at least 2 buses and in the 95 degree weather, I just didn't have tolerance for a lengthy commute.  But this night we were headed to see Iron & Wine at Pioneer Courthouse Square which made busing a breeze....

  We headed to Doug Fir for day two.  We arrived early to eat dinner first.  This allowed us to keep an eye on the door to gauge how long the line for the concert would get.  We knew that this show would most likely sell out and the only band we set out to see was going on at 12am.  Doug Fir doesn't have many seating options, so it was a priority for us to get there early so we could camp out and save...

Musicfest Northwest – Day 1


Posted on Sep 12, 2011

  Another year of Musicfest Northwest has come and gone.  I spent last Wednesday through Saturday attending concerts at different venues across town.  I was planning on a one post re-cap, but I'm going to break it out into days because I experienced too much fun stuff to cram it into a single post.  I made a conscious decision to only use my iphone for pictures.  My focus was to have a great...
