Vacationing at Lake Tahoe


Posted on Jul 4, 2010

I spent the last 4 days vacationing at Lake Tahoe.  My husband and I didn't have any set plans which is rare for us.  My husband is the king of the itinerary and we usually have each day planned out, but it was nice to see where the day would take us.  Here are some highlights from our trip. We stayed a block from the lake and had access to a private beach.  Watching the sun set was wonderful. We walked...

I've loved my first Queen Bee bag nearly to death.  After over 4 years of use and abuse, it's starting to get a few small holes and tears.   I had started to think that it was time for a new bag, but wasn't being very proactive because I love the embroidery I had made for my bag.  When I heard about the Queen Bee Studio sale today (until 5pm), I knew the time was right.   I got to the...

A few days ago I received a belated Birthday package from my cousin.  I always enjoy getting gifts from him and I couldn't wait to see what he had sent this time.   This year it was a coffee theme.  I do love coffee.  What impressed me most about this package is that every single thing he chose was for a reason.  We have a habit of writing notes on each gift which sometimes can be more fun than...

I had my very last Metal Clay class this week.  It was also the last class of all the classes I took this spring.  I must say that 3 classes is a lot.  I think 2 should be my cap.  With one class blending into another, it was hard to work on projects at home.  Still, I had such a great time in all of my classes and I learned  a lot. I made the effort to make some things at home right before my last...
