My First Vlog

Hi Guys,

I am super excited to have tried my hand at my very first mini vlog. I filmed this on my day out last Sunday with my hubby, when I went to my favorite craft store because they were having a semi-annual clearance sale. I got a few goodies. So please check it out and let me know what you think. I plan to do another one to post for next week from Stampfest I am going to tomorrow in Kissimmee, where Tim Holtz will be demoing at the stampers anonymous booth.  Happy Friday!!!

Cinco de Mayo and early birthday weekend in St. Augustine, FL

Cinco de Mayo and early birthday weekend in St. Augustine, FL

Hello There,

This weekend my husband and I took a trip up to St. Augustine to meet friends for lunch and just to have a nice break and day out. We love St Augustine because of the quaintness of the historic town and all the art inspiration around it.

It turned out to be a lovely day with a nice breeze which in Florida nearing summer is a blessing. Some of the highlights were, of course, lunch at the Columbia restaurant with our friends, a trip to my favorite store Earthbound Trading Co. and a necklace purchase (early birthday present)

Below are photos I snapped to remember our day. I hope some of them bring you inspiration and a peek into my world as you start a new work week:

A Quiet Weekend in St Augustine

A Quiet Weekend in St Augustine

This past weekend I had a chance to visit with a close friend in St. Augustine. In my very hectic life, I look forward to quiet time spent with friends over good meals and a chance to just relax.
We started Saturday morning outing out at brunch at Preserve. This quaint Victorian style home has been transformed into
a quaint, and delicious restaurant; a must try if your in the Old Historic Saint Augustine area. Here are a few shots of our delicious brunch:

After we were fueled up, we then headed to the St. Augustine Amphitheatre which I had only been to for concerts. On this morning it was transformed into a farmers market and vendor space. There were people selling their farm fresh and organic veggies mixed in with artisans selling their wares. Lots of colors, and sound and inspiration. There were some local musicians playing keeping the crowd entertained. A wonderful way to spend a quiet relaxing Saturday morning.
