Sunnyday at Mandalay Beach

Beautiful a bit chilly (for a Floridian) but the
Beach was beautiful.. Oh forgot to get the beach in the
pic, unfortunately we left due to cold breezes! But trust me
it was awesome and we saw so mmmmmany dolphins ! They were
dark blue not like Florida light to medium blue color.. They were swimming in
a nice size pod and enjoying the cool breezes! BBBBBRRRR!

Winter in Santa Barbara

Ok It gets so cold (to a Floridan that is) that I do have a
a winter coat and scarf *ok luv scarves!
Yes I do have my aqua contacts in, no I don't have blue eyes, I have
Hazely/Green...
We went to Goleta and Isla Vista and saw the Beach up there and
found another branch of hemp Wise.
We also ate at Hendrys Beach, and it was wonderful.. It was the Boathouse..
I loved it! Tony and I had a romantic brunch there.. We were right at the beach view..
They had heaters on *since we were outside. and it was still cold..
Brrrrrrrrrr
We did get two kewl hemp handmade skull cap hats, and a matching scarf....So we can both wear them! To kewl, and they were on sale.. Ok love that.
It was also a head shoppe, ok memories from dayz gone by..
I really like the shoppe on State Road.....I got my mini inspirion hemp bag there! Love it!
I really really dig that shoppe.
Ok Isle Vista is the home to UCSB.
So it looks like Party Central... No where i would live for sure!
But cute in a way... West Coast Fort Myers look too it.
We also got to run into the Micheals at Goleta.. And I got a pair of mini flat nose pliers.. :)
I have never seen anthing that small! They sell the whole set for like 9 bucks! To Kewl or what!
I am going to try out the flat nose and see if I can dig them.. If so the set is coming home with me. Also got a great deal on a sodering iron with accessories and it can emboss, and so much more.. I will post more about it tommorow.. I also got something I can't remember the name at Tuesday morning (again with the dealz!) Round paper cutter with three different styles: wave, straight, preforated....
It is great for me when I need to have a bit of a wavey look to small pieces of papers for the cards/altered art pieces!
Ok more to come!

Craft Magazine this month about Green/Upcycling Projects

Ok I realize it is pricey for a mag... 14.95, but somebody must be buying it, since they do sell them and come out I believe monthly! I did but this months copy.. About green projects.. I love it!
I have it next to my bed,and I am kinda just keeping it there till I get a reading lite, so I can read it when I can't sleep, Happens sometimes..
I guess you could say I am savoring it! For Sure For Sure!
I love it!
I may even get a subscription to it.. It is a stellar mag for those who want to learn and expand your projects and skills, baby!

Tuesday Morning in Ventura Killer Dealz for Craftsfolx

Ok Micheal and I were shopping in Ventura,,, We checked out Mervyns Going out of bizz sale (btw got two cute hippy tops!), and we saw a Tuesday mornings tucked in the corner....
Ok it was great..... I was looking for a memory foam mattress cover for my bed, but they didnt have it :(
But they did have: A WONDERFUL INCREDIBLE JEWELRY ARTISAN LUGGAGE TO HOLD ALL MY JEWELRY DESIGNING STUFF AND BEADS!
FOR 20.00! OMG OMG OMG
Ok it was like no it isn't Micheal,, Can't be... NO WAY! Ok it was unreal........ Like I even put a bid in on one for 65.00 and I was out bid and just thought oh well... Thank GoSh! I ended up like with this incredible storage system with wheels and telescooping handle! Right on! I love it.. And the Universe provided for 20.00 instead of what I thought I had to buy for 50.00! OMG!
It is PINK ALSO! My favorite color.....:)
I also got a kewl tool from Making memories (it was originally 24.00, I paid 7.99) :)
It puts different size holes in paper, etc!
I also went the next day to Tuesday Mornings in SB, ok it was small but like a few doors from Nordstroms! And it was not a typical Tuesday Mornings! It was boutiquey looking and when you went in it, it was like small and funky, but I also got there a good to go by Eagle Knitting tote, that has six pockets for holding skeins of yarn..
It is really nice and big! LOVE IT! Pumpkin color also! :) Ok I have joined a meetup group in Ventura that we will be doing knitting projects and they will teach me *YAH! how to knit! I wanna knit scarves! Yah Baby!
So I am finally getting organize..I have this belief that you have three things that you can take out of your home (I guess from living in Florida) that mean the most to you.. Only Three..
OK Mine are: the new piece of Jewelry Supply Luggage, My Hempy Mini inspirion bag w/Ipod Touch in it, Flip Camcorder, Blue Tooth wireless Headphones, (all in that little bag!)..
And my third thing: is: Djembe Remo Drum...
Ok so that's my three things...
What are yours?
Think about it.. And now that we live in La Conchita (where they had the mud slides that killed ten, in 05), It made me realize it more... and more that stuff isn't important... Which I know we believe since we moved like 40 percent of our goods, we either gave away or sold it...But I still have my attachments... So even though I have three attachements,,, which Iam really attached too.. At least I know that all the rest of the stuff means not much to me, and is replaceable...
Which is a wonderful mind set to be in.... As everything is impermanent.... So it is...
Ok I do have some stuff I do love and have attachement too..
I am trying to lesson it by my three things to take in case of catastrophe....
Or really to lesson my attachement period..
