Crazy making

Its been a busy few weeks, with a lot of crazy making. I have been trying to get things done around the house, but I am finding it increasingly hard to stay in when it is SO beautiful outside. This has yielded two great things: The gardens are almost all done (and early too!), and I have 230 new shots from one weekend. Insert happy sigh here!  Its nice when you can turn a drive home from a birthday party into a series of photos.

If you haven’t been, Port Gamble and Port Townsend are amazing this time of year. It was in the high 50’s, low 60’s and sunny. The Sunday market was in full swing, and Conor, Mia and I had the windows down and the radio up.  What more could a girl want? 🙂

Stay tuned for some pictures, and an updated calendar. It’s looking like this summer is going to be filled with some great shows.  I’ll also be posting some great events from other artists and South Park-just to round out the fun.

I hope everyone has been having a fabulous spring, I know I have!

Hello world!

Well, Hello world. You’re looking very shiny and nice today.  🙂   Welcome to my page. It’s an attempt to get my work and in turn, myself out and about.

You always get to these pages, where you think: “Hmm…my first blog/page/thing/whatever…It should be GOOD and BIG! And…”

But then you just sit and can’t really find the words you want to immortalize who you are (or at least pass the time).

I could start here and tell you about myself, but there’s a page for that. I could write out my calendar for the week, but I am pretty sure there’s an app for that.

*According to Apple and most sites, there’s an app for everything.*

So the best I can offer for this first blog is this:

Hi. My name is Raina. I live in Seattle. I’m an artist, a feminist, a nerd, a cook, a social worker, a girlfriend, and a person that changes depending on what hat I have on. Have a seat, grab a drink, and have a look around my page. You’ll find food, adventure, critters, and crafts. I don’t sit still and I can’t wait to share all of that with you!

Cheers to you in new adventures!
