May's Last Thursday on Alberta St. in Portland, OR

Wow! Last Thursday was a blast and a half. We were thrilled to learn that the city is now closing Alberta Street to cars - parking and driving - between 15th Ave. and 30th Ave. from 6pm to 10pm. Since it was a first attempt things were initially a little messy but once the cars finally cleared out it was wonderful. :D It was sunny and downright hot but there were some nice breezes to take the worst of it away when the sun really started to beat down. The place was buzzin and I was exhausted but very happy when I dropped into bed last night. Of course, some of that buzzin might have been the 32 oz Rock Star of Doom ("massive size") that I picked up on the way there. Hey, everyone has their vices. Some of my newer pieces got some really nice, positive feedback so I am pleased that other people like them as much as I do. My new goal before the next show is to devise a method of storing and setting up my necklaces that doesn't require so much fussing and detangling, etc.. Also, I need to figure out a way to anchor my earring display to its riser so it doesn't turn into a big scary kite (the downside of those summer breezes). I tried to get a few photos to capture the fantastic energy of the night but everything was moving, moving, moving so I'm afraid they're a bit blurry. I'm already looking forward to June!
