Our yummy laptops with gelskins and gems

This one is Jillian’s art with big chunky gems. It is so very fun to sit and glue gems on the art. It’s like paint by numbers. So calming. So satisfying.

A closer look. Check out the word, “Yummy” that my Bernina machine can do.

Carolyn’s Belize Trip 2009

Carolyn writes:
Belize is a gorgeous, low-key, tiny country situated east of Guatemala and the southern part of Mexico. Languages are predominately English with Spanish and Creole. For 2 weeks we rented a small cabana on the beach. We swam, rode our bikes, read, lazed in hammocks and soaked up as much sun as possible. We ate fresh fish just about everyday, played games, went for walks and observed nature in all its glory… green, pink, orange, blue, such bright hues surrounding us. It was a real rest and break from the busyness of our lives… absolute rejuvenation of the mind and creative spirit… to last a long time!
