Thanksgiving Treats

Hope that everyone is doing well and is ready to celebrate Thanksgiving in a few days.   It has been a busy time for me even though I have this week off from work.  I have been doing some paper work each day for work and spending time with family and friends.  I have done some crafting here and there, but not as much as I need to.  I am very behind on my projects.  Today I would like to share with you some Thanksgiving treats that I made for family and friends.  I kept it simple this year.

I appreciate each of you are taking time to stop by when you have a chance to see what I have been up to.  I hope that each of you will take some time to reflect on what you are thankful for and will have a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends.  Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

A Memorable Weekend and Time at Papertales

I hope that everyone is having a relaxing Veteran's Day weekend.  It has been a nice and memorable one for me.  On my day off from work on Friday my family and I went to the Winter Food Festival at California Adventure.  It was lots of fun and very yummy.  I will share some pictures with you at the end of this post.  Yesterday we had my BIL's memorial service. In honor of him we all wore a Star War's theme t-shirt.

All the guests were asked to wear a Star Wars theme, a superhero t-shirt, or a HE>I shirt.  Well, before I share with you some pictures of the yummy food we enjoyed I would like to share with you of one of the stops we always make when we visit San Diego.  A must stop for us is at one of my favorite craft stores- Papertales.  Of course a few weeks ago when my hubby and I were in SD for a concert we went to Papertales.  It is always fun going shopping there and visiting the honor of the stores.  Here is a picture of Michelle and I holding the goodies that we surprised each other with.  (If you are ever in the SD area be sure to check out Papertales.  The store is super cute!)

Here is a close of up picture of what she made for me (Check out the cute post-its inside.)

and what I made for her.

As promised here a some pictures from the food festival.  Our favorite was the curry lamb and the spare ribs. (As annual passholders we got to purchase a voucher with tabs on it to get a little discount on the food.)  I could not pass up on purchasing the lights.  I love the Mickey shaped heads.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

A Disney Themed Post and Our Weekend in SD

A friend at work is having twins.  Her and her family are huge Disney fans like my family and I are so I thought it would be fun to give her a Disney themed gift.  Along with the Disney themed gift I made two tags to include with the gifts.

Before I end this post I wanted to share some pictures from a mini vacation my hubby an I went to last weekend in San Diego.  We got to eat lots of good food and have nice strolls along the beaches.

The best part was getting to a Hawaiian concert where our favorite singer Keali'i Reichel performed. Before the concert we enjoyed an ono dinner at the hotel that he was performing at.

Going to his concerts always make a perfect date.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Cards in Honor of Boss's Day

Hope that everyone is doing well. It has been a bit rough on my end but through it all God has been revealing His love for me in various ways and reminding me what is important in life.  One thing that He has been reminding me is to slow down to take notice not only of the big ways, but the little ways that He works in my life each day.  Through staying focused on Him and taking time to think of others has helped me to make it through each day in a positive way. Two people that I thought of this week was my two bosses.  I surprised my two bosses with a gift and a card to honor them for Boss's Day.  Yes I was a week late in surprising them.  These are the cards that I made.  The tag opens up like a card too.

I used a retired Stampin Up stamp set that has an eagle in the set to put on the card. I used an eagle stamp because that is our mascot.  Before I end this post I would like to share some onolicious pictures of the food that my family and I ate last week at California Adventure.  We ordered sour dough bread bowls.  One was filled with chicken salad and the other one was filled with mac and cheese.

For dessert we had pumpkin spice churros.

Thank you for stopping by. Have blessed weekend!

A Fun Time of Fellowship With a Friend and Bows

Happy Saturday!  My good friend Esther and I used to go out once a month for lunch.  Since August we have seen each other because of my busy work schedule.  Esther and I are grateful that we go to have lunch together this week and have a fun time of fellowship.  We surprised each other with a Hello Kitty themed gift.  This is what Esther made and surprised me with.

This is my gift to her.

I made a bow to put on the bag that I put her goodies in. I had a bigger bow under the white one, but for some reason it does not show up in the picture.

Here are some yummy pictures of what we had for breakfast from Urth Cafe.  There specialty creating a picture in their drinks.

Before leaving I ordered  Pumpkin latte with boba and a matcha green tea Crème brûlée.

Here are a few more bows that I made using the die from Stampin Up.

On the second bow I put piece of Hi-Chew for the center since what is inside the bag is different flavors of Hi-Chew.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Tea Bag Folding Cards and An Anime Event

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone is doing well and had a fun and relaxing weekend.  Today I am going to share with you the tea bag folding technique that was the optional theme for the Tea Swap that I signed up for.  I haven't done the technique for awhile so it was fun to make a card using the technique.  Before making the card I had a to look online to refresh my memory.  This is the card that I made for Brenda

along with a few goodies that I surprised her with.

This are the two fabulous cards that Brenda made for me using the technique

and the stamp set that she surprised me with.

Before ending this post I wanted to share with your a few pictures of the Anime event that my friend and I went to this weekend at a bakery.  The first 50 people got to receive a free donut with a purchase of a drink.  If we "like" their page on FB we get some freebies.  We were fortunate enough to be number 12 in in line when we got there an hour nd 15 minutes before the event started. Before we placed our drink orders we took picture in front of an Anime poster.

Here is the onolicous donut with the laser cut Anime topper.

We each received kawaii poster and coaster.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a good week!
