Wedding in Kona

The wedding was at Hulihe’e Palace.
We got to tour the museum. Had to take off our shoes.
Cannot touch anything or take any pictures.
Lots of Hawaiian history.
The bride was beautiful and the groom looked good, too.
Sorry no pictures to share except for the dessert.
Variety of desserts but my favorite was the awesome pineapple upside down cake.

The favor was sembei.


Fun time. Tomorrow flying home.
Thanks for stopping by!


Island Scrapbooking Part 2

Saw Memento dew drop ink pads of many color and very, very reasonably priced.

Also saw Tim Holtz Distress ink pads in so many colors. Didn’t have my list so only bought one. Saw colors I haven’t seen before.


Wanted these, yah!!!
I got to meet Karen from the blog, Have a Scrap Happy Day.
I love her blog, check it out. Thank you for the Laser Cuts.
Just love them all.

Also visited Ben Franklin in Hilo the other day.

Remember no plastic bags. Ben Franklin I got a nice paper bag. Ross charged 10 cents for a bag. Target we bought a recycle bag for 79 cents.
Enjoy your day!


Craft Fair

Started off as a rainy day…no matter to us because we had an inside booth.
Did not have to worry about bringing tables and chairs….well we were provided two chair but we needed four so we brought more chairs.

This is the ad


Drove up to the turn around near the entrance.
Unloaded then went to park the car.
Everyone was super nice and friendly.
This is our first time here.
Set up the booths and off to teach a class…be back at 11- ish.
Thanks Cheryl and Matt for watching my booth while I was teaching a class.
Thanks Carol for helping me at the craft fair.

Saw on You Tube a way to display my cards.
The problem with the boards is WIND….
Thanks Matt for watching the board, holding the board, picking up the board…

Here are some pictures of my stuff.




Here are Cheryl’s stuff and the yummy popcorn/lemonade booth next to us.






We had a great area, provided lunch (one of the lucky ones), met a lot of people, made many sales, good turn out, an all around fun day!

Hello Kitty Gift Certificates

Went to Sanrio Kahala and they have a promotion until tomorrow (Sunday).
You buy $100 of gift certificates and you receive an extra $20 gift certificate.
Started my holiday shopping.



Hello Kitty Cocoa Mix

My co-worker found these Hello Kitty Cocoa Mix at Ross’s Waikiki.



Hello Kitty gifts

My co-worker Eri went home in the summer and brought back some Hello Kitty gifts and other things for me.
She put everything in this cute tote bag. My favorite color RED.


Here is a very cute Hello Kitty card.
I think I might be able to make Hello Kitty wearing a kimono.


Can you guess what this is?

Answer: Sweet Strawberry Radiance Hydrating Mask


Here is an ice cream cone shaped dish.


Papabubble candy and post it notes that her son bought but I’ve already used it.


Thanks for everything Eri, I love my Hello Kitty.

On our way to the airport. Here is the bridge.

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!


Lucky Eagles Casino

Staying In Olympia with my Sister-in-law for several days.
She’s driving us around today.
Went to brunch at the Lucky Eagle Casino.
Since my birthday was in June, I get a free brunch once for the month of June.
Brunch was all you can eat, YUMMY!


Here is the lucky salmon stone in front of the casino.


In the restroom, on the toilet are seat covers that automatically changes.
Very interesting.



Next stop was at Michaels to look for penny items.
Look on YouTube for penny items found at Michaels.
The items are not priced at a penny or zero cents but when scanned it will price at a penny or zero.
I’ve been watching many YouTube vids. Hope I find some.
First stop is Michaels in Chehalis.
I found many items that were on the vids but was not priced at a penny or less….hmmm
I bought them anyways because they were so cheap.
Go on the website and print out the coupons.

Next stop was at Michaels in Lacey.
Got one penny item.

This is a chipboard sticker for a penny.
Bought lots of blue tagged item but didn’t ring up a penny but was under a dollar.
Checking all over the store and way in the back.

From Wednesday, we’ll be staying in Gig Harbor.
There is a Michaels there so I’ll be checking there.
Driving from Olympia to Gig Harbor are 3 more Michaels along the way.
Heard Michaels will honor their competitors coupons.
Go on Hobby Lobby and print out the coupons.
Have a nice evening!
