Another Reason Why Portland is the Best!

Canvas Art Bar and Bistro located in NW Portland.  I want to go here!!! You order your canvas and medium choices off a menu for an affordable price and have live models, music, and art to inspire you as you dine and drink wine. Their aim:

"To inspire the mind, feed the soul and to foster community. How, you may ask? Through accessible, affordable art packages you can make in the space with your friends and family!
Yes, we have beer and wine, and a delicious menu of fresh and healthy foods. We also have books, art, models, film and musicians to keep the creative juices flowing! So give yourself a much-needed outlet. Soak in the inspiration. Discover or recover your inner artist. And let the world delight in the imagination, illumination and beautiful creation that is you! You are our muse. And we are your canvas."

Love it!!!

Itty Bitty Pretty Things

I have a new niece on the way and I am absolutely swooning over all things baby girl related!  You know you all do it too!  I found these items on the site "Supermarket".  The top baby bundle is from Lala's Pequinos who is a Natural Kids Teammate and the owner of the fabulous "Noonie" concept.

Screenprint Inspiration

I am so ready to burn a new screen, it's killing me that I can't find the time! Is it nerdy to take a vacation in order to screenprint? I pulled these from Etsy and fffound- the simple lines and bold graphics have my  mind spinning...

Fabulous Camping

From a lookbook for the Irish line Anthology my friends Amy and Kathy are carrying in their shop .  If only we all looked this cute on a campout... oh wait, we do! Nature brings out the innermost beauty.  Take some pics the next time you camp and prove my point.

Man Gift!

from ffffound

Ok, so maybe this is one of those things I love and my husband would think was silly, but I love inventive ideas, practical ideas, things that make me feel more organized, and most of all help me let go of the worry that someone is going to be impaled on the ax.

Sweet things for sweet kids

A celebration of things simple and beautiful.
