On hiatus

Maybe it’s the fact that my last post was over three months ago, or maybe that I’ve only written four posts in the last six months, but either way, it’s become painfully obvious that I’m not going to be updating this blog with any regularity. So I’m officially going on hiatus for a while. Before I do, I’ll touch on a few things that have been going on here.


We moved in to our new house in SE Portland at the end of March and we love it. The house and neighborhood are fantastic. We’re walking distance from tons of cafes, restaurants, and bars, biking distance from plenty more, and very convenient to two bus lines. Living here is pretty much exactly as we hoped and expected and we couldn’t be happier with our decision.

Colette Patterns

After some printing delays, Sarai’s first collection was unveiled a few weeks ago and is available on her web site. Online sales are going well and her patterns will be appearing in retail stores here in Portland and in Silverlake, Los Angeles.

As for myself, I’ve been keeping busy with work and a few other things. Cocktailia experienced a brief lull as well but I’m back to posting over there and will hopefully keep it up. I’m not going to worry about posting here for a while but may do the occasional update with photos and the like (which can usually also be seen on Flickr). I can also be found over on Twitter.
