Hamilton Mountain.

What sunshine we had this weekend.
We took the opportunity to hike to the top of
Hamilton Mountain.

It's an amazing little mountain,
sheer rock cliffs jut out of deep forests,

high mountains meadows are filled with wildflowers,

and there are great views of the Columbia River Gorge,
Mount Hood and Mount Adams.

Did I mention the wildflowers?
They were fantastic.

Pouring Resin.

Just spending the evening pouring resin.
I'm now using Ice Resin, and I am in love.
No more hours of baby sitting the resin children.
Just mix, pour, leave the lamp on, and go!
3 days later...resin wonders!

I will be teaching an Ice Resin class on
August 24th, 5:30-7:30pm at Collage.

Come learn to mix and pour resin
while creating two pretty pendants.

Winged Friends.

My mom was here for the weekend
and the three of us went for a walk in Reed Canyon.
We ran into some new winged friends.

I am usually not a butterfly girl,
too many pink and purple cutesy drawings.
But, I have to say that in person butterflies are fantastic.
I will thank my lovely partner for the second photo.
Good eye!
