She brought me a gift. This is a small blank book, handmade and bound by Laura. Isn't it beautiful? I will have to fill it with something wonderful. What?

From blog to real life
It is always fun to meet someone whose blog you read. I have been reading Laura's blog for about a year and we've been trying to get together for several months. We finally met for lunch at the Oregon College of Art and Craft today and had a nice long visit. If you haven't read her blog, it is lovely—a mix of the personal, her art, her photos and her thoughtful observations on life and the world and what touches her. In person, she is just as thoughtful and hopeful and articulate as that blog persona would lead you to believe. Here we are.
