Hi! My name is Erika and this blog is my place where I keep my inspiration, my favorite memories and most of all, my journey of makings things in both life and art. I am a self taught oil painter and I took the plunge to leave my corporate job in order to paint full time. I show my artwork around town and have been featured in the last four seasons of the television show, “Portlandia.” I am a mommy to my daughter Nora, who was born 7/11/12 and baby Everett, who was born 11/11/14. I have a bearded husband named Tim and have two pretty mischievous pugs. I believe in magic dust and that creativity lives and grows all around us. My secret wish is to lead the best life possible and to live on fast forward.
Hi. I’m Whitney and I live in Portland, OR with my husband Chris, dog Chance and daughter Garrity. Being a mama is absolute the best thing in the entire world. Seriously. Besides being a mama, I’m also a wife, an employee, a dog mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a cook…
Trying to “have it all” is tough, especially when somehow in all of that I need to find time to lose the last remaining pounds of pregnancy weight.
But I’m loving every minute of this crazy, beautiful life and wouldn’t trade one single second of it.

The project aims to get kids outside and connected to nature. We increasingly have become disconnected from nature, and as a result have seen a decrease in health, esteem, personal strength, and sense of responsibility for the world that we live in. This program through classes, ebooks, articles, resources and collected research for parents to explore, seeks to educate, inspire and empower both kids and their parents to restructure priorities to integrate nature back into their lives. Time spent in nature has shown positive results in the areas oaf relationship building, positive self-esteem development, relief in symptoms related to autism, add and ADHD, depression and anxiety. We can learn though these classes, and information provided, just how to include nature in our lives, for our benefit. This program seeks to strengthen the bonds between parent and child, parent and nature, and child and nature. it also seeks to strengthen the bonds of our community and its dedication to nature.
