Get Well

I haven’t been posting anything for awhile.
I have been recovering from a medical problem.
I received this adorable Get Well card from Sandy H.
This card definitely made my day and put a smile on my face!
I am blessed to have a friend like you.
Also thanks for the gift card.
Sandy used my favorite stamp line: CC Designs.



Thank you

Karen sent this thank you card, sooo beautiful!
She always put so much details on her cards.
I like the stitching on the card.
One day I will try it out.
Love the flower dies. Which die is it?
She also sent me some stamps.
Big Mahalos Karen!



Paper Smooches

Made this very quick and easy card using Paper Smooches Stamps found at Cute Stuff.
Used the Hibiscus.
Stamped, cut out, used the stylus to puff up the flower, stickles and glue down.


Check out the blog on for more ideas.
Happy Crafting!


Watermelon Abigail

Picked up this NEW stamp by CC Designs Rubber Stamps at Cute Stuff.
The stamp is called Watermelon Abigail.



Used the Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles.


Added red polka dot washi tape and a button.

Sentiment is from Dandelion Designs.

Happy Crafting!



Back to making cards.
Used the CC Designs Hawaiian Birgitta.



Used the Fiskars Border Punch called Notebook.
Wasn’t able to find this punch locally.
Found this one at Joann’s.


Used the Chevron pattern Embossing Folder from Darice.


Trim was by Recollections found at Michaels for 99 cents.
I should have took a picture before I opened it.
I bought more but they are in a box I sent from Seattle and it hasn’t arrived yet.
Here are some similar colors.
Thanks for stopping by.



Gig Harbor Bridge

On our way to the airport. Here is the bridge.
Today is very foggy.
Had a great time.

Out and About

Went to a fabulous all you can eat lunch at a Federal Way Japanese restaurant that was very reasonable in price. In the same area was Michaels. No penny items but a few bargains.
Then we went to the Emerald Queen Casino. Made a donation to the casino.

Bought boots the other day at Walmart and gloves from Harbor Court.
Used some gardening tools and shovels.
Next, find the spot.
Found a place near Purdy.
Limit is 40 clams per person. There were 6 of us. We got 240 clams in 15 minutes.
You just dig a little and gather them up.
Hardest part was hiking up and down to the beach since parking is limited.
Here is some of the clams.
What’s for dinner?


Here’s the place we are staying at.
The owners want to sell this beautiful home and move back to Hawaii.



Happy Fourth of July!






Just chillin’ today, doing laundry, cleaning, packing and just hanging out
till we head over to Gig Harbor. My sister-in-law does NOT have a TV.
BFF Carol, I’ve finished the book you gave me to read on the plane.
I’ll need to buy another book. Good thing I have my I-pad.
Hopefully in Gig Harbor I’ll be able to log on. The reception is not so good
over there. The cell phone does not always connect.
I’ll be back…

We’re in Gig Harbor.
Went down to the lake and found some stones.
Bringing them back for a friend to make jewelry.

Michaels Again

Went to another Michaels in Tukwila.
This was a nice Michaels and the cashier was so nice.
Got some good bargains.
No penny items at this location.

Was headed up to the airport to mail all the stuff I bought so far but…
The car stalled and needed to be towed.
While we were waiting for the tow, went to check out a Chinese restaurant.
It was called the Mayflower of China.
Most of the workers were Non-Asian…thought it was funny
On the menu was hamburgers and fries, clubhouse sandwiches, desserts…
I ordered Chinese food.
I had to wait for my order so the owner gave me $9 coupons for next time.
Giving them to my sister-in-law.

The tow guy, Cergi was so friendly.
He was from Ukraine.
He visited Oahu three times and the Big Island once.
He can’t wait to return.

Went to Trader Joes in Olympia.
Bought some drinks for the 4th of July.
Going to Gig Harbor tomorrow and staying till Saturday.

This morning was in the 50s but then it got up to the 90s….ugh
Got the fan blowing on me.
Have a good night!


Tugboat Annie

Had dinner at Tugboat Annie, off the water in Olympia.
The food was delicious.


We bought these pull tabs.
$20 got us 40 pull tabs.
We won $12.


Here is the state Capitol.


Went to Joann’s in Olympia.
I found the Fiskars punch that I’ve been looking for and it was 50% off.
Also found these Hello Kitty containers at 40% off plus I had a 10% off coupon.


Bought 4 of these. Gonna give some away…some

Went to get the fishing/clam digging permits at the market, Ralph’s.
My sister-in-law put our permits in a ziplock to protect it and used duct tape to
reinforce the hole. She used the cord from the casino we went to the other day.

So talented!!!

Here is the winner pull tabs.
