Picnic in Portland!

Tomorrow I'll be heading to Portland, Maine to sell my handmade goodness at Picnic! It will be held in Lincoln Park from 11-6. I'm excited. Portland is one of my favorite little cities, and I'm excited to be selling there.
Hurricane Irene is cutting the trip a little short. Instead of spending Saturday night and most of Sunday hanging around Portland, we'll be packing up my gear and driving home that night. The goal is to be hunkered down in Providence when Miss Irene arrives into town.

Journals, in the wild!

Last summer I had gotten a request for a fun custom order. A customer contacted me who was going to celebrate her 30th birthday with 3 of her closest friends, on a road trip along the old Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica. I made 4 journals for her, each one unique and showing a different segment of that journey.

A week or so ago, I was surprised to hear back from her about her trip. Her sweet email read "It's been almost a year since my Route 66 birthday trip and my travel friends and I were recently talking about how much they loved looking back at the journals filled with quotes, stories and pictures. So I wanted to say thanks once again and share a few pix from the trip."

What a treat to hear back and get a glimpse into a great trip that my journals were a part of.
