Sometimes, It Takes a Little Nudge...

October 13th?!?!? That was my last blog post?!?! Man, I'm horrible about keeping up with my blog posts, but I'm still determined to do better. I had been thinking about it, but putting it off and putting it off. Then, I got a little "nudge" from Jean to provide an update. Just when I thought nobody read this thing, out of nowhere, I'm reminded someone does. Thanks, Jean, for the little nudge. :)

Since my last post, my two big events were the Honeymoon Cruise we finally took and the Seaside Soiree event I went to in San Diego.

Our cruise was great! Scott and I had such a great time! The western Caribbean was still quite hot in the end of October - that would be the only thing I would have changed. It may have been 2.5 years after our wedding, but at least we got to take our Honeymoon at some time! I'm telling you - cruising is the way to go. We didn't have to think about anything!

We played chess onboard - nice and peaceful!

In early December, I was fortunate enough to be able to fly to San Diego for the Charity Wings Seaside Soiree event. It was such a blast! It was actually held in gorgeous Oceanside, CA, just north of San Diego. I met so many wonderful women, made new friends and got quite inky and painty. It doesn't get any better than that. Here are just a few pictures - there are more to come.

The view from the event room - gorgeous the entire weekend!

The beginning of an mixed media piece - wait till it's done!

This cutie pa-tootie is Lauren - it was so great to meet her. She works so hard for Charity Wings.

Remind me to tell you what this Modge Podge Magic is!

Me and Bev with inky hands - so glad I she got stuck with me for the weekend!

This is the only art I was doing for weeks leading up to the event - I made 36 of these tote bags for the attendees.

There will be more to come, but wanted to get a post done sooner rather than later. :)

I hope everyone is having the most wonderful holiday season - may you all be blessed with love and laughter!

Talk to you SOON!
