Thursday Craft Night Has Died, Long Live Wednesday Night Social! We officially moved craft night to Wednesday because of scheduling conflicts and a desire to expand the very definition of said night. I still encourage any type of projects including dancing and a cake walk and the reciting of prepared monologues.
Wednesday Nights at 9pm. At the Fox Den.

Last night our beloved friend John turned 30. In honor of this event Kenya and Seth threw him his identity party- a party reflecting every one of his greatest loves: friends, booze, sushi, music, dancing, gladiator dueling, knife and ninja star throwing, and weight fishing.

New tradition: every last Sunday of the month I will open my house and studio. Noon – 3pm. Come on by and try on dresses, check out the studio, ask questions, or just partake in tea and good music on the turntable. March 29th @ 5335 NE Mallory Ave in Northeast Portland. It would be nice to meet you.

I was returning with my refill when I noticed Sarah and our neighbor at the next table looking… like… they… should pose together for a portrait. And perhaps get to know eachother. Her name is Annie Rose and she is also a seamstress- making Moon Pads for… well, if you use them you know what they are for.

And she claims to be un-photogenic. I know Macon from Santa Cruz but had not seen her in maybe… five years when she casually strolled into an art opening I was attending on Saturday night. Hello! Against my protestations she will not be staying here in Portland but I did manage to rope her into a dinner party, a night of dancing, and a long catch-up over coffee. There is something almost drug-like about camaraderie.

Despite the mounting references to spring, we here in Portland will be enjoying “winterish” weather for the next 3 months. And it’s a good thing because I am not done wearing rich, saturated, warm colors that ward off the cold. I especially love the mixing of prints and textures. Today I wore a Japanese batik top in blue and white, a plaid wool scarf in navy, tan, and cream and a rust-red down puffer from 83′. No, it looked good!
