How have your weeks been? A couple of days ago we arrived back from our family trip to Kona - the Big Island of Hawaii. What a blessing it was to be there in the sun and the smell of beautiful flowers. To spend time with my hubbies parents and to have time to relax and enjoy the outside world without our winter clothes. We did so many things that I had never done before. We swam with about 30 dolphins.. Just like that! We went snorkeling and happened to run (swim) into these beautiful Spinner Dolphins. It was one Epic profound experience. They were so close to me.. and in their own environment, free and happy. I touched Lava.. I know.. never thought I would be interested in doing that. But it was new and .. different and unreal.. and black :) I tasted Kona coffee and went to a Coffee plant. Loved it. We picked real (yip real hahaha)Avocado's from the trees. They were so yummy and I made so SO many photo's.. I can fill a whole blog with them :) . Don't worry I will not bore you with them.. just a couple.. to make you smile :)
Anyway.. I can go on and on.. But I will not :) (sigh).. It was just so beautiful to be there.
I have to say that it is weird to be home again. The suitcases are unpacked.. the clothes are washed.. (yip not put away yet :), groceries are bought and normal life is part of our rhythm again. But it's good! I am excited to connect to our friends again.
This morning I walked into my craft room and thought.. I need to make a card. I WANT to make a card. I got so excited once I started again and this is what I came up with. I used the colour inspiration from this weeks Paper Players #86. They encouraged us to use 'Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake, Pool Party and Pear Pizazz as the colours. Loved using those colours. Thanks Lesley for the inspiration. I hope you'll like what I came up with.
Well.. I am off to bed.. This time change is making things kinda funny in this household. But I am tired, so off I go.
Inky hugs, Pauline
