Sedona...an Experience!

We finally made it back home late last night. It was a glorious trip! It always is when we go up to Sedona. I just love it up there. We go every Memorial Weekend, it's a family thing. My husband's sister and her family live in Sedona. The boys golf and us ladies shop! Personally I think we get the better end of the deal! LOL!

It's always very busy up there this time of the year and will be until around September. Then it seems to calm down again. But the majestic beauty of the red rocks along with all the greenery is just fabulous! The picture I've chosen to add to this blog is the infamous Cathedral Rock. It truly is beautiful!

If you want to take a tour, there's always the Pink Jeep tours available. Then there are numerous hiking trails all over the place. If you want to fish, that's there too. There is plenty of fishing be done along the Oak Creek River. If you have time, you can go just a little bit up 89A and you'll come across Sliding Rock. It really is a lot of fun. Go a little farther up that route and there are all sorts of camping and lodges along the Oak Creek on your way up the canyon to Flagstaff. It really is a beautiful drive. Then if all that fails or bores you, then you have all the shopping and eating places you can handle. The most famous is Tlaquepaque. It has a bit of everything there for you. It really is a shopping experience!

I hope you all get a chance to go to Sedona, you won't be disappointed. I promise!

God Bless,

Summer Is Here!

I know some of you just live for the summers. I happen to not like the summers. It's just way to hot to enjoy yourself, unless you are sitting in a pool, or maybe you are a lizard! Here's a picture of what I look at everyday, only this was taken in the spring, all that green you see, it's now all brown. Pretty boring!

So this is how my day went. I got to work and it was already hot in the building. But it was getting pretty warm outside already so the AC had to work on overdrive to get it comfortable again. Then at lunch I had to go out for an appointment. But I had forgotten that when I parked my car to make sure the sun wouldn't be shining in the front window of the car or on the drivers side. So I reached for the handle and burned my hand, forgot to put my hot pad in my purse so I wouldn't burn my hand! So I had to take my shirt and use it as a hot pad, you think I'm kidding don't you? I'm dead serious! Once I finally get in the car, I had forgotten to put up the sun screen, so now I can't touch the steering wheel. Can't take my shirt off to use it now can I? So I searched in the car and found a plastic bag in the glove compartment. Great idea! I wrapped that around the steering wheel. But by the time I got to my appointment, and this is no lie, the plastic bag was stuck to the steering wheel! I tried to pull it off, but it just stretched more. I just left it and went back to the cool building, but when I came out after work, it was still there. It just melted even more! LOL! I still have pieces of plastic flapping around the steering wheel. Oh, how I hate the summers living in the desert!

Hope some of you are enjoying yours! Some day I'll tell you all about the day we, fried eggs on the sidewalk. Our mom didn't think it was very funny!

Bliss - New Listing

This was a very hard necklace to photograph. As you can see, it's white and I shoot my pictures on a white background. So it was a bit difficult. I used multi-faceted rock crystal with faceted apatite and multi-faceted amethyst. The rest of the necklace is sterling silver. The necklace is adjustable from 16 inches up to 18 3/8 inches. The drop in the center is 1 3/8 inches in length. This necklace would be perfect for a bride, or a bridesmaid, maybe even the mother of the bride. Or maybe you have a special event to go to and this would be perfect for that event. Whatever it is, this necklace would be a show stopper! You may visit Bliss and many more at Creative Treasure by Donna.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. It's pretty warm here and getting worse, like in the 100's by the end of the week. I'm thrilled!
