San Francisco and City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 375 ~ You don't bring me flowers!

We got a lot, a lot done this past week, first we went to San Francisco to visit Clare, Jared and Lila...


Clare is just like me, she is easily adjusted to anywhere, she loves her new home, her apartment, new school, new job. Jared is very homesick, Lila had a hard time adjusting to new room mate, fell sick just a few days after their move to San Francisco, but they are all fine now.


San Francisco to me means Hog Island clam chowder, a meal that I will never miss if I am there.


we did a 7 miles long city hike.... starting ferry building


walk along the water and get to pier 39.....


fort mason......


a lot of steep hills to climb....


but the view is worth it....


more walk along the water and pass by some million dollars houses....


of course Palace of the Fine Arts, one of my favorite spot in San Francisco... continue to walk to Presidio, SF, and a very very steep hill to the place where Clare works.....


found a coyote hunting for food in the woods....


whew... finally there!

We had dinner with the kids, and then back to their new apartment to play with Lila, it was a lovely day spending with people we love.

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 374 ~ Paint Chip Inspired

When we were renovating our bathroom, I make numerous trip to Home Depot, and I "collected" a few paint chips, after the bathroom is done, I thought, what can I do with these paint chips, oh yes, make something, LOL!


I used the paint chips to make a few cover page for my little organizer...


but I wasn't too happy with these, so I came up with another card....


hmm..... now I am happy!


the flowers is a stamp set from Studio Katia, and leaves die cut is Papertrey Ink.

PTI Create Along With Us (July)

I hardly have a second post in the same week these days, but I have to make a last minute birthday card so why not look for some inspiration from....


The card that inspired me is this one from Betsy Veldman, see original post HERE!


and here's my card.....


I like the peek-a-boo idea and also the cake stand...


all the the products I used on this card are from Papertrey Ink.

...................................

The guest bathroom remodel project took about 3 weeks, it was done and I finally got some photos to show....


we started this project because the bath tub has some crack lines, but one thing leads to another, we ended up adding a new sink and counter top, put in new tiles, paint the cabinet....


putting in new toilet and add beads board to the wall as well... 


new lights, new mirror, took away the medicine box and add new shelf.. haha... pretty much change the whole bathroom.

 

it cost us much much more than we wanted to spend but everyone loves the new bathroom, so I guess it is worth it when everyone is happy right?

Alright, here's another thing that makes me happy!


Have a great weekend!

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 370 ~ Two Colors Only!

This week at City Crafter Challenge Blog, Marina wants us to use only two colors on our project.


I've chosen these two colors for my latest calling card (business card)


I like to keep a few of these name cards in my wallet, when I met someone that we need to exchange contacts, instead of pulling out the phone like most people do these days, I like to pass one of my card to that person.
