Who is Totinette?

totinette

Hello…my name is Torie, but you may know me as Totinette. I like to make things and I love to laugh. I sell handmade jewelry in my etsy shop and at a few select boutiques in Portland. Some of my favorite things in life include being a mother, having a house full of sweet animals, learning to play the guitar, drinking tons of jasmine tea, and spending time with family and friends. I also love vintage Hollywood glamour, mid-century fashion and design, France, architecture, sailors, and old jazz music.

My friend Cathy of Bossa Nova Baby and I organize Crafty Wonderland: Portland’s art + craft extravaganza. We put on 2 large-scale craft fairs a year at the Oregon Convention Center and have a retail store downtown featuring the work of 175+ local artists! Crafty Wonderland, 808 SW 10th Ave, Portland, OR.

I’m also a member of the women’s collective Portland Super Crafty. We came together to help promote our businesses and spread the word about the joys of crafting and the importance of buying handmade items. Our first book, Super Crafty: Over 75 Amazing How-To Projects was published by Sasquatch Books in the fall of 2005. We also filmed a few episodes of Uncommon Threads for the DIY Network. I’ve always wanted to be on tv, but I’m actually quite camera shy.

  1. Hey Swayze! Love the new site and photos on flickr! I want to hire you as my personal life designer (is that an actual job?). What a lucky little girl mini-Nguyen will be! :)

  2. Hey! Congratulations are in order, it would appear. How is parenthood treating you? You look great and it looks like you and Quentin are doing well!
