the wind moved
slipping around
and passing through
refusing to stop
or even pause
where is it going?
where did it come from?
only the clouds know
and they're not talking

Holiday JoY

The Winter Concert



Here's me and Brandon before heading off to the winter concert. I can't believe over how tall my son is growing!! Well, we are finally getting into the Holiday Groove at our house. Things have been a little slow taking off, but we really already had a little Christmas the day we brought our Sophie home!! Cheers, Lisa xoxox

Follow Your Heart!

B is for Brandon









What can I say about him?? Brandon is my favorite kid and not because he's mine! Only twelve years old.
He's a sweet, funny, smart kid who is just plain fun to be around! Thank you Brandon for being you!!
Last weekend he accomplished his 100th dive!!
And that is an incredible feat, let me tell you.
It's cool to see that the sea lion pups love Brandon and know that he feels the same!
Here are some photos Rick took of their adventure.
Think Good Thoughts, Lisa

Sunday Flea Market Treasures





This past weekend was the Long Beach Fea Market.
I had a super day looking for treasures! Afterwards I went up to Sweetpeas & Snapshots to check out all of the new supplies they've kindly stocked for us. I did love everything, but kept myself in check with a few holiday papers and the Cavalini Butterflies Stamp Set.
It's not easy to be good, especially when everything there is just so Sweet!! XOXO

Carson Rubber Stamp Convention

Recently I had the very fun adventure of going to the Carson Rubber Stamp Convention.
Old & new friends....Laurie, Belinda, Eva and I joined forces to conquer the convention! I did not meet Tim Holtz, but saw him doing a demo for a few minutes. He seems like a cool person that would be fun to take a class from. I did get to meet Kate Lyon from Invoke Arts and enjoy some art conversation. Thanks Kate!
Check out her site for some very cool art stamps.
Hope to see you there next time!

Doll House Friends





Here's a peek at the doll house. I am planning on doing some home improvements, but for now I'm just having some fun playing around. Cheers, Lisa

Holiday Angel



Saturday's Angels Among Us Workshop will be held at StampinEJ's in Costa Mesa!
I've been collecting lots of little holiday bling to includ in the kits. I must admit there is so much out there right now!! Go figure, I'm usually too busy to shop for this stuff early, so I get the end of the season stuff, but not this year!! Cheers, Lisa
