I am finally back home from a 4,000 mile road trip (taken in a two week time span). This vacation was simply amazing and fun and adventurous and also a bit tiring and it was all so worth it. I really think we all needed a break from our responsibilities and worries. However, I know that both my kids and I are also happy to be back home and continuing on from where we left off.
Kids now are in summer camp for 4 weeks so that I have time to organize myself before the madness with school, sports and other kids activities start again at the end of this month.
I turned 40 this past May and since I always had a dream to swim with a dolphin, I decided to include Discovery Cove in our vacation. Discovery Cove is an amazing resort park in Orlando right by Sea World and my whole family and I got to have a 30 minute swim with a dolphin and then we swam with and touched sting rays and colorful fish. Here are a few pics making one of my dreams come true:
I meant to have the origami dress vide tutorial done and uploaded before I left for vacation but my son got sick the day before we left and I spent most of the day at the doctor's office and pharmacy so that we could have everything straightened out before we headed out on our road trip. By the way, he also got an ear infection right after he finished the antibiotics for the previous illness so I spent two weeks administering antibiotics about 4 times a day...that was a PAIN!
All right....so here is the long awaited video tutorial:
And here is a card I made with that little dress
I am in the process of organizing my studio so that it is more in sync with the way I work but I will keep posting other projects I entered for the Artisan Award.
