For a change......

I used to post everyday, at least for the past 12 months, I have been keeping my blog very active, even when i am on the road, I pre-scheduled a new post every single day, don't know if it is the holiday, or I am just too busy with other things, I kind of feel less motivated to craft, let alone sitting in front of my laptop and write my post. Oh well, I do miss my blog friends and wanted to let you know what is going on the past week......

We found another park near us (on Christmas day)

Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Spring

I can't believe we just discovered this after living here for 18 months, especially it is only 15 minutes drive from our home

it reminded me so much of the east coast, where we often spent Fall visiting nearby parks

wild life....

peaceful and quiet.....

I am really loving all these right now....

I do want to say THANK YOU for all these lovely cards and gifts I received for the holiday

my dear Pixie Lauren sent me a beautiful Paris card, oh how she even know I love Paris, LOL!
a great book on mixed media art and lots and lots of goodies from her recent trip to Hawaii

just look at this Hello Kitty, it is simply Kawaii

a perfect vintage angel card from Ira

and another one with Vintage Santa from Sylvia

Sylvia also sent a pack of yummy chocolate, we all love it!!!

this cute mitten card from Cheryl

came with a pack of Prima butterflies, I can't wait to use it on my project

and from Linda Breedlove, a snowy winter card, perfect for the holiday

thanks so much my dear friends for all the happy mails I received the past week, I have more waiting to upload to my laptop, show it to you another time....

Our new home.....

A set of cards for "Our New Home"....
no no, we are not moving, the cards are made for my aunt who recently moved to her new apartment

 I seriously do not mind sending my handmade card in a padded envelope and pay $1.71 for postage, but when times like that, I make these cards  post-friendly, so my aunt will not have problem using them

I hope she like it.....

I am linking this to the challenge over at

this week is "Anything Goes"
