Art, Design, Inspirational juice of the day., Photography, Quotes


A night of just testing out watercolor and creating typography.  A slight fear sneaks in from time to time and to encourage myself this quote came to mind.  Fear can only paralyze you if you allow it to.  Don’t let it win.  Fight back with FAITH.  You can’t have both in one boat..which one will you chose today?

DROPLET kind of weekend.

Mt. Tabor Hike overlooking Portland City.  The trails were simple and coded by colors and arrows to lead you on your journey.  My friends and I went on the Green arrow trail.  Total of 1.7 miles roundtrip.  VERY Easy hike if you up for a chill kind of hike.  Colors and arrows more simple than remembering the trail “NAMES”.  It was a droplet kind of day.  Macro shots of droplets on Dandelions, Clovers, and spider webs which look like string droplets.  Way cool with Macro-eyes for the hike.

The PDX view from Mt. Tabor. Sooo MUCH greens.

Hope your Wednesday is going well thus far!

Instapics as of late.  I have been crafting, cooking, and plenty of typography it up lately.

I was lucky enough to have been invited to AMERICAN IDOL LIVE!  The experience was great and

much appreciated with them singing LIVE.  They were all once an audience and

now standing on the stage sharing their music with the world.  I had a great fulfilled weekend and hope you did too!

Will share many more of my Mt. Tabor hiking journey very soon.  HAVE A HAPPY MONDAY.  Start your week with something great. *WINK*

Inspirational juice of the day.

Saturday Inspiration

Typography has been my itch lately.  I came upon this quote to inspire me through my journey of 2013.

We are already on July and the summer is leaving me soon.  The days are busy and it is just passing me by.  Many dreams to have and many to accomplish!

Do you have dreams?  Are they little or big?  Whether it is little or big keep going.  Believe in yourself until you get there–its not too far out of reach!

Have a happy Saturday.  On my way to go hike this Mt. Tabor trail.


SUMMER salads

The BUSY schedule can interrupt a person from cooking at home.

YES, I have been guilty of this and there are no excuses to eating healthier–better yet making the meal yourself.

I have been inspired by a friend to make my own salad dressings and falling in love with trying new salads.  So simple to make and not a lot of time AT ALL.

Although, one of my favorites are the berry salads.  Below are some salad/dressing caught my attention while pinteresting.

Photos are screen captured via pinterest. You can check out more salads/dressings on my pinterest salad board.

Not only does those berries looking do delish–I was pulled in by the MANGO vinaigrette.  M m m…love me some MANGO–better yet in a vinaigrette dressing?? YES!!


Gotta have almonds and red onions in my salad!


Some blueberries always makes me happy.


Combination of tomatoes and BEETS!


Grilled shrimp skewers–mouthwatering!
