A Fun Week, a Card, and Some Coloring

I hope that this post is finding every one doing well.  I just finished having a week off from work.  It was sure nice to be able to have fun and relax without needing to worry about getting home to do paper work for work.  :) It was a fun week having the opportunity to spend some quality time with family and friends. I also had a chance to organize my craft room and to do some crafting.   Before I share a some pictures of my week off I wanted to share with you what I made for my dear friend Fran's birthday.  I always think it is more fun giving a present to someone with a specific theme.  Her gift had a tea/tea party theme. I gave her a set of tablets that have tea cups and a tea pot on it. Each tablet was personalized with her name on it.  This is the card that I made for her.

This is how it looks when you open it.

As you can see to add the perfect finishing touch to my card that is shaped like a tea pot I added some rhinestones to it and mounted it to a doily.  I also want to share with you what a friend's 4th grade son and I colored with my Copic markers.  He wants to be an artist one day and wanted to learn how to use the markers.  I gave him a mini lesson.  Can you tell which page he colored and which one I colored?  :)

Okay now onto some fun photos from my week off.  Here is a photo of me at an Air Supply concert that my family and I went to with some friends.  Yes Graham and Russel walked in the aisles.

This picture is a picture of some friends and I out for lunch enjoying some poke.

Last but not least are some pictures of my final adventure on Sunday with my family before going back to work today.  We spent the day at California Adventure.  We met Judy Hops and Nick Wild from the movie Zootopia,

ate some ono food at the Wine and Food Festival (The dessert with mango pudding and coconut pudding with tapioca balls was one of my favorites.),

and meeting the artist Jerrod Maruyama.  It was super cool to get a toys designed by him and a print done by him signed.  His version of Mickey and Minnie are just too cute!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a blessed day and week.


  1. I'll bet Fran was very happy with your teapot card. The bling sure adds that special touch. Wow, you and your friend's son did a fantastic job coloring with Copics. You're a good teacher. Ummm, that pudding looks so yummy and that sounds like a great and coconut. I love them both.

  2. A wonderfull teapot-card you have made for your friend Fran K.
    Must have been awesome to meet up with Jerrod Maruyama, seen the picture on his blog.
    It's always fun to read your Disney- and other adventures.
