The Funky Door is 1 Year Old!

Yesterday The Funky Door celebrated it’s 1st year.  For those of you in Portland who haven’t been to the best coffee shop in town, it’s at 28th and Holgate and definitely worth a visit.  The party was so much fun.  It was nice to hang out with friends and eat super good food.  I’m so happy that the first year was a success.  Here’s to many many more happy years in the coffee...

I did it!  My kiln partner and I applied to be in the Rebel Rabbit Craft Fair and we were accepted!  This will be my very first craft fair.  This will also be the very first time I will actually try to sell my creations.  This is huge!  You might have noted my tagline: Crafty, yet shy.  It’s so very true.  I’ve been working up the nerve to sell my stuff for at least a decade.  If I...

Last week I decided it was time to catch up on my Photojojo.  I get my newsletter every week, but had been to busy to read it.  Cruising through the archives I saw this project and also this project (#1 on the page).  I figured combining the two would be great fun at my sister’s upcoming party.   I emailed her the idea and she loved it.  I bought a frame at Goodwill and my sister rounded up a pink...

Last night I saw Nickel Creek perform at the Roseland.  (I think my phone camera pictures are getting worse and worse.)  This was the second time I’ve seen them in concert.  They put on a great show with lots of banter.  They really seem to love Portland.   I got to hear some of my favorite songs and even got to hear amazing covers of Radiohead and Beatles songs. Today on the eve of my 33rd...

This weekend my husband and I made our traditional visit to the guild show at the Oregon Convention Center.  We’ve been going for years now and we look forward to it every time.  The show consists of the Metal Guild, Pottery Guild, Glass Guild, Fiber Guild, the Bead society and for the first time this year the Woodworker’s Guild.  I always find great ideas at this show.  Since it’s always so close...
