Paris Peat Pot

For Art Party this month we did an exchange of altered peat pots. Here is my offering, as all of my art now seems to be with a Paris theme! My husband wonders of it will get worse or better after I go to Paris in October? (I think worse, of course!) The peat pot was a very inexpensive and interesting thing to alter - and once I got started I just couldn't stop. I have now tried stamping, embellishing, and painting them, and I even created a hot air balloon out of one. I have yet to photo it, but it will end up on my blog when I do.

Happy Pink Saturday to the wonderful blog visiters from How Sweet the Sound. To follow others visit

Paris Angel

Bon jour mes amis des Pink Saturday! This Angel is a gift I created for my mon ami Mary. Mary and I will be heading to Paris together in October, and I was so lucky that she figured out how to fit a quick stop for lunch with me in San Diego on a recent trip she was making to points north. We dined at Cafe Chloe in downtown and feasted on wonderful French food as we perused our Paris books to plan our trip. I just can't wait for our Parisian adeventure to begin!

To visit my other friends who post on Pink Saturday visit

More Comic Con Craziness

Comic Con just takes over San Diego each year. We are so fortunate to be able to host this crazy event! Although we didn't attend, we were at least able to get into a little of the night life action and get some great photos of our adventure.

Zombies Walk The Street of San Diego!!

Zombies rose from the dead and walked the streets of San Diego during Comic Con 2011. My family decided to head down and watch, and boy what a blast it was! San Diego is transformed into a crazy land during Comic Con, and it is really fun just to head downtown and observe all of the hoopla. There were hundreds of zombies walking through the streets. From dogs to brides to cheerleaders to The Joker, it was such a fun sight to see.
