Adventures in Portland
The last few weeks I’ve been pedal to the metal (so to speak) on a number of projects.Â I did two back-to-back fairs – the West Seattle Fair, which went fabulous, and the Best of Magnuson Park fair, which wasn’t as great as I’d hoped.Â It was still really good exposure though and a good preparation for shows later this fall.
Right on the heels of this, I closed out some projects and then jetted off down to Portland for an extended work-weekend with a crew of artists that are building a large sculpture installation for Burning Man.Â That epic four-day work party was followed by three days back in Seattle, and then another epic four-day work party in PDX.Â This has been an amazing experience!
Here’s a teaser photo; I’ll hopefully get some more posted later this evening.
We are building, among other things, a Fire Organ.Â From scratch. :D
I’d go into more, but this is really worthy of its own entry.
Other accomplishments: much blog shuffling and maintenance has (finally! at long last!) resulted in a new WordPress engine under the hood of the PeggyFoy.com blog.Â Further shuffling means it now ships automatically to both LiveJournal and Facebook.Â That is, I hope.Â If my calculations are correct…
And THAT means more frequent updates.Â I’m actually quite an avid blogger, but the initial system I launched back in December was not Single Button Publishing — and thus did not get used.Â It still doesn’t look the way I want it too, but one step at a time.Â Functionality!Â Huzzah!Â I’m liking this platform a lot and I’ll probably migrate the entire site to WordPress later this fall.
Time to ship this thing and see if it works, yeah?
