Need Help With Your Photography?

Thursday July 31st - Tea Time will be all focused on photography

Autumn will be our lovely and wonderful host (THank You!!) and you can look see on the forum for her address

Bring your camera, your laptop, perhaps a sample of your work... or just bring yourself (and none of the before mentioned items, oh - you could bring a snack if you would like, it is lunchtime)

I will try and take pictures and notes of all the ideas shared so that people who cannot make it can still reap the benefits.

Lets help each other out with our photography! There is always room for improvement!

Etsy Tea Time July 24th

This week Tea Time will be hosted by Autumn of AutumnComfort.etsy

"Let's try and do Lunch, so if you want to bring something great, but no biggy if you can't.

My house is super kid friendly. (ok, except for all the cut glass wine bottles on my kitchen counter) If the weather nice we can be on the deck and I have lot's of water stuff (little pools, sprinkler, slip and slide) for the kids, or the kid in you Laughing Yay, I can't wait.

Oh, and I have a big patio table so should be plenty of room for crafts if you feel so incline. cheers

I'm sure I'll want to talk about sampler stuff as well."

Hi Everybody

Due to the sheer wonderful-ness of last week :) lets do it again!!!

There are raspberries, blueberries and maybe some marion berries available at Kruger for us to pick.

And then there is a farm that has cherries available for U-Pick that is just between the bridge and Kruger, if you are driving towards Kruger its on the right, there is a sign that says "U-Pick Cherries" and you follow that road for about a mile.

Thats where you'll find me!

see ya there!

July 10th - Tea Time with Rasberries

Okay people - tea time in the park is wonderful, I love it, last week was very productive for me and it was great to see everyone. My goodness, it was perfection.

This week I was thinking... and researching... and drooling...
lets go Rasberry Picking!!!

Sauvie's Island, Kruger Farm... according to their blog, the strawberries are winding down and Rasberries are ripe for the pickin'!!! I can't wait - and I am happy to use tea time as an excuse to go out and get me some. So come and join me people! I will be at Krugers around 11am, with the orange table cloth over a picnic table out by the parking lot. I'll wait till maybe 11:30 or so to head out and start picking.

If you've never done this before: dammit take the day off work and come join us! Its supposed to be 80degrees out and sunny. Wear sunblock and/or a hat. Bring cardboard or fruit holders if you want to be resourceful. Otherwise thats all you need. To get there head up Rt 30, its less than 1/2hr north of Downtown Portland. You'll see a bridge to Sauvi Island, take that bridge (its brand new!) and Krugers is the first farm on the right as you head straight down the main road. See you there!
