Aloha, all! I had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend, beginning with a lovely dinner hosted by a new, but already dear, friend at her home on the ocean. Oh, my what a peaceful time that was, even with 30 or 40 people milling about. All of us were delighted to be there, and we met loads of new friends whom we hope to meet again. All live not too far from us, so that … [Read more...] about What I’ve Been Doing All Week!

Aloha, all! I have to tell you from the start that this is not my typical blog post. Oh, it's "paper crafting" in a way, but not completely. You see, this week is a light work week for me, and I'm taking the time to catch up on some projects I've been neglecting. Most of those are scrapbooking, and all of them involve working with Project … [Read more...] about I Love it When I Learn Something Completely New!
Aloha, all! Today is the 16th birthday of our grandson, Quin. Of course I had to make him a special birthday card. I've already made him a scrapbook page to use with pictures from this special teenage birthday. But he still definitely needed a card! For this card, I felt that his name had to be included. I wouldn't … [Read more...] about Happy 16th Birthday to Our Grandson!
Aloha, all! "Aloha" is filled with just a bit of cheer for me and my husband this month, as we finally are getting our house ready for a move back in 5 or 6 weeks.

BUT the lava is moving slowly, and no one can seem to … [Read more...] about A Bit of Throwback Thursday!
Aloha, all! I've updated this blog post to update the photos that I included in the original. When I wrote the original blog post, I could not find my photo paper with which to print photos for my Project Life Pages. Now I have a new supply (I never could find the original supply with all this moving from one house to another!) and I'm redoing all my … [Read more...] about Creative Blog Hop!
Aloha, all! Amazingly my Christmas holidays managed to be a lot more action-packed than I expected. If you follow me on Facebook, you might have noticed that our senior-citizen kitty became ill on Christmas Day. But she's pretty much all recovered, which is a real blessing as we head to the New Year. And, no, my Christmas … [Read more...] about Time for Thank You Notes!
Aloha, all! I'm really enjoying putting my first Project Life by Stampin' Up! album together. It will be an album for 2014, and so far includes all of our fun activities except for the time of our daughter's visit with her family in February. That's going to take some time to organize because between the two of us we have several hundred … [Read more...] about Project Life by Stampin’ Up! – Planning Ahead!
Aloha, all! We had so much fun on our snorkeling cruise last month that we decided we just had to go again. Shhhhh - don't tell my husband that I really just wanted to take more photos for more Project Life by Stampin' Up! pages! Not really - but that's what happened! Here's the first page that I made … [Read more...] about More Snorkeling – More Project Life!
