Port Costa...

my life will forever be changed...
rolling into Port Costa was like going back in time.
what a magical "little" town...
what unfolded was many new friendships & so much 
inspiration... 

my travel buddies
pearl hooper & dede warren


the road to port costa...


let the magic begin...

monica's studio window...


the beginning of shibori dying


the reults...


the letterpress!


my book box w/ mollie meng


the theatre we made


the ambiance every night...


one of wendy's theatre's


crocheting the beads...


a beautiful spot for freinds, food and 
good cheer...


the wall in the bull valley restaurant


the shop quote...


more magic...


the collections...


more shop...


heading out of town
don't forget to leave a wish on the tree
of wishes!


so much inspiration...
that I haven't stopped thinking of this magical little place
since we left...
my mind is churning with business ideas, plans & products
which I am hoping will come to fruition in the first quarter of 2015

turning 53...a few fun things to share...

as we age lets face it 
there are a few things we need to spruce up!

1. the tired eyes...
cure: my new mascara!
it's a fiber mascara and i love it!
it's called "younique"
the fibers stick to my lashes, they look fuller and longer
I even leave the house with no make-up just my mascara!!

2. the gray peeking in to say hi...
cure: my new "E-Salon"
forget Loreal!
I love this product & the packaging is like receiving a gift in the mail!

3. my journal
cure: photos!!
my new photo obsession!
photo stickers, photos & photo strips!
perfect for journaling!

4.  my jeans...
cure: a nice nude heel instead of a flat,
already i feel younger!

and
what have I been up to...

4th of july with the family!
