Hello, Stamping Friends!

Well, I had a wonderful 'girls weekend' in Seattle with my BFF, Susan ๐Ÿ™‚   It's a trip we did 2 years ago; we took the Amtrak train down to Seattle, (left at the inhuman hour of 6:30 am, which means I was up at 4:15 am!); we shopped all day, had dinner & stayed overnight at a cool Belltown hotel called Hotel FIVE, then took a cruise ship – the Holland America 'Westerdam' back up to Vancouver.  It was a wonderful weekend spent doing whatever we wanted ๐Ÿ™‚  Other than the weather not cooperating on Saturday (we had the same rain storm there, as was happening here in Vancouver), it was a lovely time.  Of course, it's always wonderful to be back home, with my family ๐Ÿ™‚

We did go up the Space Needle on Saturday (in a mild windstorm, with lashing rain!) – I was surprised we still had a bit of a view.  Then we went to the amazing Dale Chihuly Glass Museum.  My friend Susan wasn't really sure what to expect – she wasn't familiar with Chihuly (so she thought), but she was delighted, and thought it was the best part of the trip!  I'm going to share a few pictures here, because really – words don't do Chihuly's work any justice!

This is called 'Mille Fiori', which means 'Thousand Flowers'    You can see the Space Needle past the glass flowers, through the atrium.


We were lucky enough, during our dinner on board the cruise ship, to see a double rainbow, shining over Seattle!


I'd also like to share a couple of pictures of our wonderful Vancouver skyline – this is at Canada Place, taken when our ship was docking.  The 'sails' are Canada Place; the other building is the Vancouver Trade & Convention Centre.  You can see our Sears Tower in the background of Canada Place – it looks like the Space Needle!

Well, I guess you're wondering where the promotions are for October!!  Well, settle in with a cup of your favourite – there's lots going on again this month!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)


I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
