I'm so pleased to be able to mention here that Shari, the thoughtful blogger with the keen eye who pens The Glass Doorknob, has featured my work in her holiday gift guide today. More than just being smitten with the complimentary attention (and oh, am I smitten), I'm in complete awe of Shari for the colossal amount of work that she undertook in interviewing for and organizing her holiday guide project. And if you haven't been following along with it this week, you should check out the other artists and designers that she's already featured. To be in the company of these talented people flatters me to no end. Thank you, Shari.
And if that weren't reason enough to eat cake, the fact that my brother, Peter, celebrates his birthday today seals the deal. Flourless chocolate delight shall be consumed with reckless abandon tonight. But first, I'm headed off to work. By bus. This is my first time exploring Portland's public transportations system. I'll miss my daily drive over the Fremont Bridge (oh, the sights you see from it!), but I always look forward to a little reading time while someone else is driving. Enjoy the weekend, and eat some cake, too, while you're at it.
