Happy Halloween everyone! It just doesn't seem like Halloween to me. Maybe because I went swimming in the ocean, tanned on the beach and ate breakfast on the lanai all before noon. In the spirit of Halloween, I've got to give you something sweet. Here is a pictures of the fresh hot malasadas I got to eat everyday! Hot, sweet, light, pillowy dough coated in sugar. Just insane.
Aloha is a universal saying for hello, good bye, thank you, I love you, etc. Seems like yesterday I was saying a hello aloha to the beautiful island of Maui. And tomorrow sadly I will be saying a goodbye aloha. (especially since its a beautiful sunny 84°, and I've heard it is dark and raining at home in CA)
My stay was a mix of emotions. Sadness that I was leaving my husband at home. But happiness that I was able to spend quality time with my parents and share the beauty of the island with them.
Pictures to come on monday! Hope everyone is having a great weekend.
Some people say you are either a dog or a cat person. I never liked either. I was never an animal lover. Over time animals started becoming more and more interesting and I was able to tolerate them. Fast forward 5 years later and I swear I wouldn't even recognize myself. I guess opening your heart to one animal allows you to open your heart to all animals. I don't know what I would do without my little Barkley....and wonder how I lived 25 years without a pet!
It's only when you have the jobs from hell that you recognize when a good job comes along. I am thankful I work in a "recession-proof" environment where people actually care about each other and encourage a work/life balance.
These are the cards I made for my 2 bosses. The whole department signed the two included them with the gifts we bought! I hope they have a great day today!!!
Although it's hard to see, I used crystal effects/liquid glass on the drink portion of the stamp and added stickles glitter to the strawberry and cherry.
Here's to all the great bosses out there! Enjoy your day! And to all the bad bosses...well, no cards for you!!
This weekend my cousin-in law got married! It wasn't until last night that I realized that I didn't have a wedding card for him and his new bride. So, with just minutes to spare, I managed to whip up this simple and clean card using my Washi paper tape and a heart punch. I rounded the corners with my corner chomper and finished the card in 3 minutes! Yes, that's right...from start to finish 3 minutes!!! Go me!
I dl-ed this blogger-droid app for my new phone. So this will be a miracle if I can figure out how to work this thing.
As some of you are already aware, I am a San Francisco Giants fan. On Fri and Sat they had the chance to secure the NL Pennant. But true to form, they managed to lose both games to test my blood pressure and patience. Well today is the last game of the season. Win or go home. For all the marbles.
For good luck, Barkley and I took a nice long walk to mentally prepare for this game today. I sure hope it worked.
