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 community. That was want we set out to achieve and it's been great. I know our future is bright; we really love this little HiP beast we are creating.
In celebration of our launch, my good friend surprised me with this incredible yarn gift bag from Wool Girl. What a treat! The box was filled with two patterns, yarn, a handmade button and much more. Everything was beautiful and the presentation was great.
The gift had this tag on it. It's so fitting because the launch of HiP is something I've been trying to write into my life for quite a long time. I think with my fellow partners, we will put together a wonderful book.
