A Patchwork Point Of View

Patchwork Festival isn't very hard to explain, yet many people misinterpret it for a granny old school craft fair that you had during the holiday season. That is until they get their butt's on over to The Patchwork Indie Art's & Crafts Festival! That's when they see what they've been missing out on for the past 6 shows. Now I too will admit I was once one of those people that thought " huh? whats a patchwork festival? A quilt show?" 

So, my friends, I dedicate this post to all of the artists,crafters, musicians, patrons, volunteers and the founders Delilah & Nicole, who put on a wonderful festival! 

Step into the Long Beach Patchwork Festival from my point of view. 


























Here are some of the best of the best participants in this years 2011 Patchwork Festival: 

Created by Delilah Snell, an Orange County Master Food Preserver. She works with over 20 different Southern California farmers and local gardeners to create a number of preserved goods highlighting the flavors and seasons of the region.



An independently owned, local company you can feel great about supporting. Everything is made with love, by hand, using only the best ingredients this beautiful world has to offer.


A devilishly delicious Date & Bacon spread that sends you straight to heaven. 


Eco accessories, handmade for real life! Everything is made not only to look good but to be functional and practical for everyday use.




Handmade, up-cycled vintage jewelry. 


Hope to see you all at Patchwork this fall.

Claremont Village

My mom and I have been going to Claremont forever now, and if you follow this blog than you know it too! It's a cute town that's near the foothills, has colleges, food, beer and cute shops to wonder in. 

We decided to take Loki with us that day, and it was so damn hot...is this the hottest summer in a while? Or do I just forget the prior years...eaither way it was on fire in Claremont that day. 

We stumbled upon a taco shack that was undeniably cute! I'm working on finding the name of it, I can't seem to find it on any listing.
Over by the restroom by the taco shop there was the wood csrbed donkey so we had to take pics with it! Poor Loki was so hot that day! 
Enjoying chipa and salsa at the taco shack.




A few things I do that make me feel like me

I start work in two hours so that means I have just enough time to start writing a blog post. Its been an inspiring week and I feel like there are signs from all over the universe guiding me into the right direction. I have had some meaningful time spent alone as well as with other people. I'm trying to have "more fun" and not worry so much about the little things. A few weeks ago I saw a psychic and she told me a ton of things, it was super strange to feel so vulnerable and unsure if what she was saying was true or not. 

The things she said that made me think... Ill be a mother, not now but in a few years. That I will be a successful Business woman, because I have vision and drive. That I have a dark spirit following me, That I want to be happy but that I only will be if I let whatever happened to me in my past go free.
As you can see it was pretty intense, full of tears and I was scared, but I knew that she was right because for a long time I had been unhappy and it was…

As some of you may know, this new shopping center has been in the works for a few years now and is part of a whole new community of new custom homes and even a retirement home as well as a swimming club all under the umbrella of La Floresta, a master planned community.

One of the big draws for this new community is the fact that they had a whole foods as part of their shopping centers new tenants, and us crazy people in North oc have been having to go out to Tustin to get our fix of pre-peeled oranges and lemon infused water, I kid...lol do people really buy that crap anyway? Wenever I go it's usually to buy something fun from the beauty section or the salad bar!!! Yum!!!

When I went out to see the new location a few weeks ago I went in on the opening day! Crazy I t…
