Portland Open Studios

Portland Open Studios is a yearly event in Portland, Oregon where artists open their studios to the public. It was last weekend, and will be next weekend, too. You can go here to view their website for more details.

I found out that one of my favorite artists was taking part. Mom and I went last Sunday and I got to meet Jessica Swift and her family. Her website is here. Last spring, I somehow got signed up for her “100 Uplifting Days with Jessica Swift”. I can’t find a link, or I’d give it to you. Hell, I’d sign up for it again! I got an email from her every day for 100 days starting last spring. I can’t tell you how many times what she said was exactly what I needed to hear right in that day.

The picture above is of the Animal Allies oracle cards that Jessica sells, and that Mom got for me. (Thanks, Mom. I love them!) There’s a second set that I will get next year. You can get them on her website, here and here. She’s also selling a calendar for 2022, with some of her best sayings. Here is that link. Mine’s already on order.

OK, that’s quite a few links for you to check out. I think I’ll just stop right here. 🙂

I like that this greet and meet is for artists. Not exclusively, mind you.


Meet and Greet

Meet and Greet Welcome! I’m borrowing this blog sharing idea, which I’ve seen on several different sites. I’m especially interested in seeing new blogs devoted to the arts and the creative process, but everyone is invited to participate.

Meet and Greet

Here are the rules:

  1. Leave a link to your blog or or to a post and tell a little about yourself in the comments section below
  2. Read a bunch of the links other participants shared. Comment on them, and share them.
