Our Beautiful World 133 ~ Markings

If you haven't know yet, paper crafting is not my only hobby, I pretty much like to do a bit of everything.....

things like patch work
 

the markings of the triangles ready to be out out....
 

they are all scraps left from the material Dolce used to make her night gown
 

a nice stack ready to be used
 

well, I actually started the project but left it somewhere and now they are no where to be found, LOL!
 

Ok, I guess my craft room need a tidy up job now ! : 0

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 297 ~ Fantastic Plastic

Don't be surprise to see that I am still working on the page of my 2013 year book...

that was before I started project life...

So this is one page for August 2013, when Dolce and I drove to Valencia to see Clare, she was still at CalArts at that time, working in the summer for the school.

 

the plastic you see here is the film strip.....

 
it was a requirement to used plastic for our challenge this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog

I think these sequins qualified too...



We have a special guest star for the month of February, she is my dear blog friend Andie Miller, you should stop by Andie's blog to check out her work, she is fabulous!


Come play along with us...

Project Life 2015 ~ December 9

Project Life 2015

December 9 



I checked the weather forecast last night, it said rain on Thursday, since we will be leaving San Francisco on Friday, today is the only day to do if we want to go to Muir Woods.
Early this morning, we took the cable car to Fisherman's Wharf to look for the City Sightseeing, they do a Muir Woods/Sausalito Tour, I did it once with my aunt way back in 2012.


My sister is selfie queen, she even took selfie while waiting for cable car : 0



 Well, how often you hear people complain that weather forecasts are never accurate.
We  found City Sightseeing office, bought the tour bus tickets and then waited for the bus to come pick us at 9AM, the sky starting to get dark and it started to drizzled.


 the bus was pretty empty, just 4 of us and another couple from Brazil, the driver let us stop at Golden Gate Bridge for just a few minutes, Mom and sister got off the bus for pictures.


Guess the bus drive needs his cuppa, he didn't take us to Muir Woods first, instead, he stopped by Sausalito for coffee, we were told that it is the best coffee in the world, so we got some for ourselves, but nah......



the rain got even heavier when we reached Muir Woods, the first thing we do is to go to the gift shop to get a few ponchos. Sis is so vein, she rather walked in the rain then wearing the ugly poncho.


I love Muir Woods, the rain didn't take away one once of the fun from us.
 
before we leave Muir Woods, I got to get the famous grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup for Jesse, I don't eat cheese and don't like tomato soup, but I heard that they are super good (recommended by Food Network)



Next stop - Sausalito



I insisted a good meal when we were at Sausalitot, Scoma's Cioppino

 

by this time, my summer shoes are all soaking wet



but we did have a lot a lot of laughter from a piece of red leaf.


the tour bus took us back to Fisherman's Wharf, I just have to take mom and sis to Ghirardelli Square for some chocolate. Sister stopped by Lori's diner for picture.


Mom and Jesse went back to hotel for the night, Sis and I changed and go shopping at Union Square again, we saw this and  had to snapped a picture, Singapore flag hanging at Union Square.




Thanks for stopping by.....
