Portland Bazaar

Last weekend I considered my self lucky to have some time to stop by the Portland Bazaar. This is the first year for the event and I heard about it from Design Sponge. It was held in the amazing office space of Sandbox Studios - perfect for the event.

Cool finds.... from my adorable friend Avery of JuJu Papers - ltd edition hand screen printed tea towels that will find there way into friends/family stockings.

Amazing jewelry from Stone & Honey - a few pieces that I am still thinking about are the amethyst and honey comb designs.

Stumbled upon the Haunt booth - which is actually a brick and mortar store on East Burnside here in Portland, OR. Found the perfect casual winter tunic by Emily Ryan - who is a local designer. As soon as I got home I put this Cowl Neck Tunic on and almost went to sleep in it!

I purchase a medium and it fits perfectly - running a little big in the hip area. This might be good if I decide to wear jeans underneath. The cowl neck can be worn different ways - again super versatile and comfy. I will be wearing this to a few parties this weekend!

December Daily | Update

Honestly, I am really doing December Daily... but between editing my photos, uploading them to print [at WalMart], going to pick them up - then taking photos of the pages that are done, editing, etc. I just can't squeeze the time to post! Whew.

How are you doing? I am thinking that I need to print these at home. Wondering if I should do the same for the Project Life 2012...I am thankful that I am working out these issues before that starts.

I am not too terribly behind in the December Daily project - I have some photos printed, some notes taken and some pages designed... all in all a good start. How about you?
