In the late fall my long-time friend Nan moved to Portland and took her studio with her.  Today I took a nap-time break on Sidney Day (Monday, the day when R & I routinely care for our adorable grandson) and dropped in to her new Portland studio.  Her business is called Souvenir Suitcase…

We had a long chat catching up on lives, condo living, kids, work…good.

Locally her terrific crackers are available in her Etsy store (see link above) and at the wonderful CARGO …which moved last fall to the east side and is now at 81 Yamhill SE…these will be delivered in time for Chinese New Year…

The studio felt great with good lively energy…and made me want to get into my own!
