Saturday in Champoeg

Great day yesterday. Beatrix and I ventured out to Champoeg to hang out with family and friends for a few hours. We had a great time of it -- would you believe the sun actually came out for a few hours. While everyone else was camping and "roughing" it in their RVs for the long weekend -- Bea and I drove over and back through hill and dale.

Hope in a Ray of Sun

Further proof that the sun does shine here in the Pacific NW. Why just this morning, in fact, it blasted through my bedroom window and was bright enough to actually wake me up.

As I backed the Jeep out of the garage earlier this afternoon -- I caught a glimpse of something I haven't seen in quite some time. Blue skies! Well, a patch of blue sky.

Making Sunshine on a Rainy Day

Maybe it's true what they say -- you know "you've got to make your own sunshine." Well, those aren't the exact words of the proverb or whatever it's called; but today those words are keeping me going. Yes, it is still raining here in the glorious Pacific Northwest -- I know, I know...a bit caustic...but it's how I feel.

52 and Rainy -- May 23

It's just not right. The rain has been nonstop for the last few weeks and the temperature hasn't crept out of the 50s. And, it is the end of May. Yes, I am whining! Again!

Where do you find your inspiration?

Luckily for me, I don't have to go far for inspiration to hit. Sometimes I wish that weren't the case and I could be like other designers who talk about their world trips and how they are inspired when they are globetrotting. Maybe it's the homebody in's true, I am the only person I know who has a hard time being away from home for more than ten minutes...a behavior that usually makes my friends crazy.

The Fog Has Lifted

It's true -- the web site fog has completely lifted and what is left is a glorious new site perfect for windowshopping, strolling and buying; yes, I said buying. I know, it might be somewhat smug to describe my site as "glorious" but after so much hard work, I have to say it does look splendid.

Lost in A Website Fog

For the last few weeks I have been roaming around in a web site fog. Anyone who has ever taken on the task of building or rebuilding a web site knows exactly what I am saying. Luckily today, we have geniuses who create templates, that with some tweaking, can make things look fabu and allow me to stay reasonably sane!
