Art, Soul and a little Portland . . .

"Ready, Set, Go."
Journal Page

The day I've been waiting for has finally arrived . . . Excited Me is about to board a plane to Portland for a week of art & anarchy (well, maybe just a little) with this lady! We'll be taking classes from Jesse Reno and Mindy Lacefield (yay) and hope to sneak in some sightseeing time as well. I'll take pictures along the way and share them with you here upon my return . . . .

But before I go, I wanted to show you what I just got in the mail:
