I hate it when I let two weeks go by without a blog post! I am way too much of a rule follower, and I set myself the rule to blog every Wednesday. I had much internal angst when I broke that rule, but I just had other priorities last week.
Last week, I was busy getting ready for the opening of Artistic Portland in Downtown Portland. As many of you know, that is the art cooperative that I am apart of here in Portland; the local home for my art. We just moved into a big beautiful space Downtown, and opened our doors there on Monday. And I got to work the opening shift! It was very exciting.
Anywho, last week I was busy getting my products packaged and priced (alliteration!), and helping out getting the space ready as well.
If you wander into Artistic Portland, you will find my original drawings, signed prints, tote bags, pillows, and greeting cards (pictured above). If you don't live in Portland, head over to my Etsy shop to purchase those things instead. *I'm currently offering free shipping in the US on Esty with the code FREESHIP. Offer expires June 10th.*
In adventure news, I went on an epic hike this past Sunday with some friends. This was a bucket-list kind of hike, something I'm so excited I was able to accomplish. We hiked up Mt Hood to the Sandy Glacier Caves. There are so many great pictures from that day! It's hard for me not to share 20... here are a few.
Ok I'll force myself to stop there. It's was so amazing being that high up on Mt. Hood. So beautiful! Ok, one more while I sign off.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
