Making Promo Bags

Tea time was lovely - isn't it always!!! (especially Etsy style tea time!)

Today we met up in Laurelhurst Park. It was a beautiful day. We sat around the orange table cloth and chatted. Aimee brought the most yummy treats - much including lemonade turned purple with fresh picked (by her!) frozen Chester black berries... ummmmmm

We made promo bags for the exciting upcoming Etsy End of the Summer Sale out in Lincoln City. The bags are awesome! Pins and stickers and bookmarks and beads, moo cards and other business cards and fliers galor - oh these are some tempting little promotional bags to hand out. So many goodies - ah the traffic we will drive to our Etsy stores! We outdid ourselves if you ask me! And I picked up more cards and buttons to include from Mary on the way home.

It was also our honor to have the chance to celebrate for LittlePutBooks. We are all stoked for Ryan achieving a landmark in sales - 3000 - in under a year! She is an amazing and generous friend - its awesome that her goodness is rewarded on Etsy with such sucess. Kudos!

So... we are all very excited about the success of last weekend's BOGO sale and this upcoming beach sale out in Lincoln City. Its looking to be a great event - good luck everyone this weekend!

Field Trip to the Museum of Contemporary Craft

Myself (LeahPellegrini), Judi (CurlyGirlGlass), Lea (Leakarts) and Aimee(NewroticGirl) met up at the Museum of Contemporary Craft for a field trip.

New building

the artwork was wonderful! Heres the group of us posing outside for a picture

We also went and checked out the museum next door - the Prints and Photography - awesome work displayed within! And there was this strange installation in the back that had a red button on it that said "END THE WORLD" and it was plugged in and sounding staticy... I couldn't help myself... I had to push the button! Its art for goodness sakes! And there was another button underneath that said "CHANGE YOUR MIND" I pushed that one too. :) I got Judi to take pictures!

U-Pick on Sauvie's Island

Oh my what fuN!
Picking Fruit at Krugers Farm - we picked rasberries, strawberries and tomatoes

we wandered the big farm tasting the goodness

we even dragged around an old red wagon to hold our booty

no camera was involved though! Mine was out of batteries, Gina's was out of memory. Go figure. so then we got out out the cell phones and started taking shots with them.

If anyone else has any good shots from their phones, email them to me:

pictured here is Gina's (sparrowfish) awesome son checkin out the cell phone camera action, and in the background you can see rasberry bushes and Etsians(curlygirlglass and newroticgirl) trying to take pictures with their cellphones:

and then before we left (and may I say - I took home over 6 pints of picked rasberries to make some jam and it only cost $5!!!!)

we went and picked some flowers - a whole bucket of them. it was awesome - Dalias mostly, and a few sunflowers - sorry about the fuzzy picture - again, it was taken with a cell phone :)
