Well I have been spending my days on facebook and neglecting my blog..but thought I woud take a moment to drop in and say hello and wish you all Happy Holidays. It is frigid cold in Portland, Or. where I am..no snow yet but the East winds are howling and it is is FREEZING!
I also wanted to put in a plug for a wonderful website I have found called Where Women Create https://www.wherewomencreate.typepad.com and they are having a daily contest called the 12 days of Christmas where you can pop infor the next several days (today is day # 7) and enter with a comment daily (all prizes announced 12/14...they are giving away amazing things by talented artists.
I also wanted to put a plug in for UNION ROSE https://www.unionrose.com which has just RE-LOCATED to SE 78th and Stark in the Montavilla neighborhood. Stop in and shop local from one of the over 30 artisans there (including picking up a hand crafted Holiday Card from yours truly)!
For those of you over size 12 or with plus sized lovelies in your life MAGICAL CREATIONS Boutique https://www.magicalcreationsboutique.com located at NE 43rd & Sandy Blvd in the Historic Hollywood District is collecting food for the local food bank and with every donation of 3 cans of food or more until XMAS EVE you will recieve 25% off your entire purchase...help others and enjoy GREAT SAVINGS YOURSELF!
and of course I can't forget to mention the incredible TRILLIUM ARTISANS https://www.trilliumartisans.com located at 90th and SE Foster in Portland ( or shop on-line)
where everything is made local and out of re-claimed and re-used items....Gotta love that! I personally sell my handcrafted photograph bottle cap magnets here.
If you have great ideas of places to shop local in Portland I would love to hear about them and also please share the news about any other contests you might know of...
