New Orleans

Brrrr..... it is cold this evening! Well, I should not be complaining, most of the days here are in the 60s, it is winter, I really should not complain that much when the temperature drops to the 40s in the night!
The family is still here, but Clare and Lione will be leaving end of the week : (
Dolce will be here for an extra week, even though she works from home, I am still happy that she is around in the house.

I haven't been that active in blogland the past year, mainly because the increase of my work load, so I don't have much time in the craft room, I have the intention to do better this year, even I don't have new project, I should just pop in to post something old or just chat with you right?

Travel in November

We went to New Orleans and then to Atlanta to visit a friend in November, I thought I'll share some photos of my trip here with you.

A friend of DH insisted we stayed at their mansion right at the French Quarter this time, this is the view from our balcony....

it's a short walk to the French Market....

I am sure most of you have heard of Beignets.....

if you are in New Orleans, I suggest that you try one at Café du Monde, indulging yourself in this heavenly treats, yum......

Since I only have half a day while DH is at work, I just enjoy the stroll nearby....

Thanks for stopping by..... before I go, here's a little treat box I made for the holiday.

enjoy the rest of your holiday weekends and have a wonderful 2018!!!!

Christmas Card Day!

This year is late for me, it is December 9 and I haven't send out any Christmas card yet, however, I did make quite a bit this year.....

because postage for overseas mail is rather expensive, and I did send a lot of Christmas cards overseas, so I am making a lot of CAS cards, that way, it fits into a regular envelope so I don't have to line up at the post office because it is not a package. Here in the US, if you send a card in a padded envelope,  you need to go to the post office, stand in line and then fill up a custom declaration form, ya, I know, that is way more CAS cards this year....


I make these in two colors.....

I am joining in the fun over at Simon Says Stamps Blog
