I made an art card and I think the circus ran it over.
Having a little nephew and being around him and all his bright colorful toys has done something to me. I made the lovely Bekka an art card. She won my random drawing and so I sent this crazy guy off to live with her:
I really don't know what to say.
oh my gosh I'm nervous. What if Bekka doesn't like it!? (Bekka I'm crossing my fingers you love bright circus colors)LOL
off to join the circus.
In this picture I am contemplating cutting my hair once again.
Yes, serious, totally unposed LOL! I Love wearing my hair short. I love wearing my hurley drum kit t-shirt. And I can never wear my turquoise earrings enough. So whatcha think? Shorter....color or leave it. hmmm....pondering serious stuff people. I'm also trying really really hard not to let out a couple of exciting things going on over here. YES all scrap stuff LOL not just hair cutting. I cannot wait to show you. One is for Scrap In Style (my first challenge) this Tuesday. And the other 2 I am DYING to tell you guys but.I.can't. I hate secrets and surprises. Seriously. Only because I'm terrible at not spilling the beans. Hence the reason I've been away. I. CANNOT. KEEP. IT TO.MYSELF!!!! And so It's been fun. 5 new pieces to share and counting down.
Lots of this:
And before I forget I wanted to answer a couple of Questions from sweet Meg...
I am coming to San Diego June 4-11 and I'd love any suggestions on what we should see/do/eat in the area :)
First off Meg. COOLNESS!!! A ticket to paradise is the best especially since there is so much to do around here. And now I become your personal tour guide to all things San Diego. Ready? Follow me! Lets GO! LOL
To See, Do & EAT:
This Big Guy is always a fav. I've swam with the dolphins there and it just really is a great place to chill. (PS: they have the best strawberry funnel cakes there) Mission Beach is both home to Shamu & Belmont Park I love the beach setting and amusement theme. pretty cool.
Next up let's take a tour of the Gas Lamp Quarter in Downtown San Diego:
Home to our Padres Stadium (Mr. Handsome would kill me if I didn't mention this) The garlic fries are to DIE for. Yes super greasy but heck you only live once baby! The tickets are pretty cheap for nosebleed and honestly, you can't get a bad seat there, it's pretty small and perfect.
The Gas Lamp is pretty much a cool place to eat shop and peruse local art studios. I love this little area. You can also walk right over to The Tin Fishand have some fab fish tacos YUM!
Next Up: Little Italy(By the airport also in a different part of Downtown)
My heart stops every time I'm here. I LOVE all things Italian. I always eat at Filippis The spaghetti with meat sauce is mouth watering. I also shop and am completely a kid in a candy store when I go to the BLICK store This little part of town is a gem.
Next Up: Sea Port Village, Coronado & Shuttle Ferry
The shuttle is a very inexpensive, easy and fast way to get to and from downtown/Sea Port Village into Coronado. I always eat at Spiro's Gyros. They let you chill in their patio area after hours to the twinkling lights. ANd from their patio you can see the downtown shoreline sparkle. It's gorgeous. My fav Italian yuppy restaurant is Il Fornaiowhich is located next to Spiro's Gyro's. Mr. Handsome takes me there on my birthday. I recommend their pasta and lamb. It's perfect. Plus if you are hungry for something sweet, Cold Stone is a stroll down the park. As far as eating and enjoying Sea Port Village go to Asaggio's Pizza for some Chicago Style deep dish lovin'. I cannot stress this enough. I love artichokes in my pizza. The cheese is perfect.! And the statues are BEAUTIFUL! (You don't want to miss the two story classic sailor kissing the nurse.)
Surf's UP!!! At La Jolla Shores. I went to school right by this beautiful clean beach and I tell ya, if I had learned to surf earlier. I so would not have made it to class! LOL. There were always students ditching class to get the next big wave. All rentals are available. Handsome and I favor eating at George's at the Cove. It sits along the edge of a cliff and you have a delightful view of the sea in the Ocean Terrace. This place has yuppy art galleries and most of them are friendly enough to walk in and out of without any problems. Very cool place to just walk around after lunch or dinner.
And of course: Church baby!
I love this church! They do things so differently and pretty much in a cool southern cali style. So come and join us! ;) I always have Starbucks right after with my handsome. Sweet!
Okay... whew! I hope that was enough. When you come to San Diego, just know that our traffic is insane starting around 3:30 PM and mostly going in the south direction. If you don't like traffic as much as I do, I suggest you chill a little longer at the beach ;) Or catch a movie during that time all AMC's have a special. Thanks Meg for letting me be your tour guide! Have a safe and beautiful trip! AND DON'T FORGET YOUR SANDALS!!!!
I'm so glad I could help. If anyone has any other questions I'd be happy to answer. So don't be afraid to ask. I'll see ya Tuesday with more art!
And thank you to all our Military both past and present for making this a free country. We are blessed because of you. God bless.
