I updated some of my links in Travel section to the right...
I added the link to Whats-on magazine (all you need in Las Vegas)
This magazine is my bible here in Las Vegas, I read it every week. It has a map of the strip, restaurants, shopping, concerts, shows, all the hotel listings. Everything you need in Vegas!
I also added the links to Art unraveled and Art and soul retreats, these are great places to get away and make interesting art objects.
Be back soon with more interesting things happening here in Las Vegas, oh I am revamping my craft room so get ready to be amazed!

world is your lobster
Sorry if you are offended but I like lobster! I won't eat it while it looks at me, but take the meat and use it in a dish and I am all over it!
Friday night Charlie and I, Colleen, Greg, Debbie and Leonard went to Fellini's in Sam's Town for dinner. I had a lobster dish that was baked with asparagus and lobster and cheeses and penne pasta, Holy Smokes that was Fantastic!
The service was horrible but I will go back for that lobster dish!
We went to listen to the band Mister Hipster but they were not as good as the last time we listened to them so we all went home.
Try Fellini's out, the atmosphere is good if you sit up front not in the back and you will probably get better service too!

Music Monday!

I love this music, I could listen to these kind of songs all day, I swear I should have been born in the back of a greyhound bus on the way to woodstock!

Well, we got it, thanks to low budget tv productions! My son is driving the 3rd set of orange cars, the stationwagon with the little trailer full of tires gets really crazy so make sure to watch it all (6 minutes) It's too hilarious!! He wins at the end but they did not show him getting his trophy! You know they actually get paid to do this!! Hahahaha!

Catching up!

I have been busy this week...class on monday, ethan on tuesday, and Shauna's birthday lunch on I play catch up with all the stuff to do around the house.
Here is a photo of the class monday, we played with copper and wire. Copper is fabulous to work with, You can add color to it using stuff like potato chips and hamster shavings, You can hammer it and cut it into all kinds of shapes! I love to work with the copper, I can't wait to play with it again!

Eggplant anyone?

Desert Newcomers Luncheon was yesterday at Tuscany Grill, 11105 s.eastern towards Anthem area.
I chose the eggplant parmigiana as my entree. We were served bread, brushetta (too dry), salad, oh the house dressing is yummy, we were dipping our bread in it before we found out it was the salad dressing, very tasty! The eggplant was huge! and very delicious! If you live up in henderson, this is probably a great place to have dinner/lunch one night a week. But for us it is much too far to go to. It is very casual, not a fancy dinner place.

Well, I am off to see an allergy doctor today. See ya later!

Calendar Class

I was able to go to Ferne's on saturday for this neat calendar class, once the months are over the pages tear off and can be slipped into a 6x6 album, so you can have a whole year in review album at the end of 2008! Pretty cool!

Nothing new...

Well, I got nothing accomplished yesterday, I had to just sit still and do nothing. Until I can get help with my breathing I am trying not to exert myself. I go to the doctors today.
Maybe next weekend I can get stuff put in my online shops.

Oh how cruel is this...tuesday night..biggest loser and american idol go up against each other!! These are the only two shows I watch faithfully, this is just mean, but I will skip idol to see how well the people on biggest loser do, it is so inspiring to see someone change their life for the better, to see how happy they can be, I just love that!!

Will be selling soon!

I am going to have a wicked hospital bill soon, so I decided sunday I will need to get some stuff put on etsy and ebay. So stay tuned for that.
I was just thinking that being able to breathe is something worth paying for, how about you?

Got some stuff to share but I have been sick the last few days, hope to find something fun to post soon!
Stay tuned!

New stuff!

I love my living room! I have 3 trees now and each one has their own lights. All 3 lights sets are different. and when you turn them on the room has a nice soft glow and with the candles burning, it is real comfortable. The tree by the jukebox has a switch on it that when I use my foot to turn it on it turns on my digital picture frame on the cd rack, too cool. Everything is back in place and I am real happy with it, it is much nicer in person, but you get the idea!

Ok here is the picture from class yesterday...the beaded bead, it was actually fun to do. The focal bead is 5 crystals all put together with beads that turn it into one big bead, neat concept!
You are supposed to make 5 of them and make a bracelet but thanks to betty's idea of just using one bead to make a bracelet, I went home with a finished bracelet, I also got an A in class!!

My new year!

The Biggest Loser started last night, couples edition. It looks like it is going to be an interesting one.

It was January 1 st, did everyone start exercising for the new year??
I have 5 months until the pool opens again, so yeah, I worked out last night, back on my treadmill after taking December off. I only need 1/2 hour 4 days a week. I am not overweight for my height and bone structure just real mushy so I have to tone with weights and treadmill. I would love to have Jillian as a trainer but since that won't happen I can always try out the stuff on her website: Jillian

I added a couple new songs to my exercise mix...davy jones theme from pirates of the caribbean, that one is cool, it starts out with the music box theme and then gets real intense so it is great for when you go to uphill on the panel.
Then I added Heroes by nickelback, love that song.

Jewelry classes start again this friday, and I am taking a neat calendar class at fernes stamp club on the 12th, then I have the desert newcomers luncheon on the 16th.

I have my scrapbook retreat coming up in March in Newport Beach, which I will be attending alone due to Mary's husband decided to take her to Galapagos Islands that same week, gee, how can she pass up scrapbooking to go see some of the most amazing creatures on the face of this earth. I actually had to go read up on Galapagos islands, wow, she is going to see some very interesting things on those islands!! I may have to do a post all about that place!

Since I am really getting into traveling and taking all kinds of classes and as always good food and music...I thought I would use my blog to highlight travel spots once a month, then we will have music monday, and I will try to get my husband to eat at new places so I can do restaurant reviews more. And you will get to see all the things I make in various classes.

So stay tuned for what will be a fun and educational new year!
