jade_melissa Good morning. I'm daydreaming about chocolate cake, how about you?

I'm selling this original gouache & ink painting of decadent chocolate cake for $45. I'll send an invoice to the first person who leaves their email address.

International friends, I'm happy to send my work to you but you will be responsible for additional shipping & handling. Thank you for understanding.

jade_melissa I believe that love wins. I've believed that my entire life. I've seen the mess that hatred and ignorance makes. Events of this past week give my pessimistic heart hope. Maybe we can make this world a beautiful, safe place after all. Maybe we can be our true selves without fear of judgement or violence. Maybe we can learn to embrace & support one another instead of being afraid of what we don't understand. I hope you're having a beautiful Sunday... #portlandcafevibes 3d

jade_melissa Enjoying my morning with french pastries and tea today. I've been on the go so much lately, it's nice to have at least a few moments to enjoy my new @DroidByMotorola. The 48 hour battery life has been my saving grace, getting me from one meal to the next. Funny that I need to stop and recharge myself more often than my smartphone. #droidturbogray #sponsored #pastries 4d

jade_melissa Still daydreaming about the incredible smorgasbord we had at @broderpdx a few nights ago. If you're looking for dinner plans, I highly recommend their space & menu. I could certainly use one those those rhubarb sours right about now.

See more of our meal on @endlessly_enraptured, link in profile.

jade_melissa Why, good morning to you. I hope you had restful sleep. Unfortunately this crazy weather has caused my allergies to flare up & I woke up with a monster of a headache. I'm doing my best to push through since I'm off to a very special meetup later this afternoon. I would love to take you along. Follow me around today on snapchat: jademsheldon 3w

jade_melissa She asked if I would paint her a cupcake. She told me she didn't have anything specific in mind but that she loved swirled frosting, sprinkles & her favorite color was lavender. Those were details I could work with... #jadeillustrates

jade_melissa When you live in a city like Portland, you learn to not let the weather dictate your plans. Despite the rain and cold, I decided to bundle up in my new @duveticaofficial jacket and take a long walk along the waterfront for some much needed inspiration from this beautiful city I call home. In partnership with @duveticaofficial #duveticaland 4w
