I have a few fun things to share with you today!
Thought you might like to see the bouquet I picked from my garden last week.. I think it's the prettiest one yet!!
I feel so blessed that I got my mom's love for the garden, AND I'm very lucky that we live in a great climate here in the San Francisco Bay area and that my plants are usually VERY happy! :)
I wish my mom were here to celebrate my birthday with me yesterday.. but I know she's smiling down from Heaven!
25 FREE EMBOSSING FOLDERS:
I challenged my Luv 2 Stamp Group to MAKE and SEND 10 cards to 10 special people in May. We are in the business of making cards and making people smile by sharing those stamped cards! I wanted everyone in my group to participate and told them I'd draw 25 names to recieve a FREE Embossing folder of their choice!! 56 participated and here are the names of the 25 winners!
I challenged my group to keep sending 10 cards a month - if all 225+ of us do this for the rest of the year, we will have blessed over 15,700 people with handmade cards!!!
FUN DAY ON THE BAY:
Last week we had the opportunity to board the Grand Princess cruise ship .. she was in port in San Francisco on her way to Alaska... we had friends who were sailing to Alaska, so we were able to do the "Bon Voyage Experience" that Princess offers and board the ship for the day and enjoy the superb service at lunch in the dining room and then spend a few hours on the ship! Here are some of the highlights from our 1/2 day on the ship.

Below.. this is the bridge we come over to go in to San Francisco.
In 1989 this was the bridge that was damaged in the quake - remember when a section of it collapsed? .. they are FINALLY building a new bridge! I think bridges are beautiful.. I can't wait to see the new span open and the old one demolished.
Below: After our short 4 hour visit on the ship, we walked up and down Pier 39 and watched the Grand Princess sail out of San Francisco bay and under the Golden Gate Bridge, on her way to Alaska!
Bon Voyage, Grand Princess!
