Lucky, Lucky Me!

In entered an on-line basket swap with an art group that I belong to and boy did I get lucky with such a wonderful swap partner who spoiled me rotten! Catherine Aguilera sent me this fabulous basket filled with all sorts of goodies - a hand-made May Cone, a covered MatchBox with a little birdie on top, a piece of her art featuring Marie Antoinette, and much, much more. Thank you so much Catherine, you have really made my day!

Day at the Docks

Isn't San Diego wonderful! Today we went to Day at the Docks in Point Loma. For only two dollars you can take a ride on a fishing boat in the bay. This handsome devil is sitting on the bait barge hoping for some freebies.

A Day In The Mountains

Yesterday my entire family enjoyed a beautiful day in the mountains. It snowed in the morning, but by the time we got there it was almost gone. Nonetheless, the kids still sledded in the little snow and mud at Mount Laguna. We ate lunch and apple pie in Julian, and even stopped at Green Valley Falls on the way home. The falls were the largest we have ever seen them. And we saw so many wild turkeys in the Green Valley Falls campground. It was such a wonderful day!

Spring Gifts

I found these beautiful file folders and pens at Michaels and couldn't resist buying a few to package up for my coworkers. I made a black Easter egg with white embossed swirls and added some bright colored flowers and rinestones to match the folders. I love to give little gifts!

ATC Group Easter Banner

ATC Club Easter Banner

Oh how I love my ATC ladies! We meet once a month and trade miniature treasures of art. This month we created triangular banner pieces made from a 3x5 card. This is my contribution, and the first photo is a sample of 5 of our pieces strung together. I feel so lucky to be a part of this group. Stay tuned for next month's photos - we are making Fairy Slippers!
