Art Lessons with Creative Cycle

March 30, 2012



My name is Loren, and I would love to work with your child or teen to foster their artistic talents and nurture their creativity.

Creative Cycle brings high quality fine arts instruction directly to your doorstep.  Lessons can be private, or for a small group.  Instructional programs are individually tailored to meet your child's needs and build on their interests.

If your child or teen is passionate about art, and would benefit from going beyond their in-school art program, I would love to meet with you and discuss the ways in which we can work together to fulfill their needs.   

For more information, please visit my website.  I look forward to hearing from you soon!Logo_web

Hello, I received a floral diaper cake for my shower. It was beautiful and really not like any that I have seen in the past, so I thought I might give them a shootout to everyone. Thanks Ray and Kathy! www.bloomingdiapers.com

Cooking Classes at Lost Arts Kitchen

December 02, 2008

Do you want to cook tasty wholesome meals at home, but feel you don't have the time or the skills? Wondering what to do with that strange-looking vegetable you found at the farmers' market or how to preserve the bounty of summer? Would you like to save money on groceries or quit shopping at the grocery store altogether? Do you want simple recipes that incorporate local foods and highlight their natural flavors?

At Lost Arts Kitchen, you can learn not only how to bake bread, make cheese, roast a whole chicken, and practice other lost culinary arts, but how to incorporate slow food traditions into your fast paced modern life. Find out how you can bring economy, organization, and time management into your kitchen, reduce your food bill, and enjoy delicious, nutritious meals at home.

Lost Arts Kitchen offers small, hands-on cooking classes in a typical home kitchen in NE Portland, as well as private lessons and consultations on topics such as meal planning, food storage, and kitchen organization.

New Doctor in Sellwood

November 30, 2008

Dear UrbanMamas,

I am a board certified family physician, opening a solo private practice in Sellwood; until now I’ve been working and teaching at OHSU and continue to be an Assistant Professor there. The Open House is Tuesday, December 2nd 7PM to 9PM, EVERYONE WELLCOME.

I do not do immunizations (and don’t believe much in them), but otherwise provide a full range of adult and child medical care (until June of 2008 I did obstetrics and in-patient care too, but stopped that to focus on teaching and out-patient work).

I am also an urbanpapa with 2 boys, 7 and 8 year old, of my own.

Oleg I. Reznik, M.D.

Campbell Salgado Studio Holiday Specials

November 16, 2008

I am a long time fan of Campbell Salgado Studio and thought urbanmama readers might like to know about their holiday specials!

My first experience with Campbell Salgado was over eight years ago, while pregnant with my twin daughters. Eager to capture memories of our pregnancy, my husband and I booked a portrait session. The resulting photographs were so breathtaking that we have returned to Campbell Salgado Studio each year since, trusting Francisco and Kim to capture the gentle changes in features, expressions, and relationships in our family. And they do so, beautifully, every single time.

I have been so thrilled with Campbell Salgado Studio that I recently began assisting them with marketing - It's so exciting to share my love for such a talented team with everyone!

Here are some holiday ideas for you to consider, each of which includes a limited-time offer!

•The Winter Session Special

•A Holiday Package

•A portrait slideshow on DVD

•Custom Greeting & Holiday cards

see the Gift Idea blog post on our website for more details…


The session itself creates a wonderful memory for your family.. a moment in time when you can relax and enjoy eachother.
