art by Matteart "Weather Vivienne"

Last night we headed over to the South Lake Union Velocity, a really hip home art and design shop. Velocity owner, John Tusher, felt that there weren't enough opportunities in Seattle for artists and designers to meet, chat, and make some connections. In attempts to remedy this he's freshly launched "The Lab" a monthly get together with a special speaker or panel each time. This month, the first month, Matte Stephens (Etsy shop: Matteart) was asked to come and give a perspective on his success and share tips. The number one tip he gave: produce! He encouraged everyone to create something new everyday, and discussed his daily routine and inspirations. If you haven't gotten a chance to check out Matte's work, you better go run to his Etsy shop!
John's vision is exactly what I've been looking for to become more involved in the community out here. So thanks a lot, John! The Lab will usually be held on a Wednesday night from about 6-8, late in the month. Next month they'll be hosting a panel of celebrity bloggers to talk about the importance of blogging, and what its like to run a daily blog. That should be a great event to attend! Hope to see you there.

Winery times

Fort's parents came out from Baltimore to hang out with us for the weekend. Mama Cloudy said it was a requirement that we head out to a winery and do a tour. Well.. what Mama Cloudy wants, Mama Cloudy gets! We headed out to Woodinville for the day to check out Chateau Ste Michelle, Columbia Winery, and Redhook Brewery. And we barely made a dent in all of the wineries that are out there! I highly recommend you check some of them out if you ever are out this way!Lily Cloudy came out with us for her first ever wine experience! Nooo we didn't let her drink, we are a *little* responsible. :P She did get a good lesson in wines, though!
I'm always looking for a good winery to go visit. I'd love to hear suggestions from you guys on where my adventures should take me!
