And the cruise memories continue...



As we drove through Mazatlan, we went past the open air food markets, a full-block open air floral shop & fresh fish vendors, lined up on the sides of the streets. Our guide stepped off to get some shrimp to show us the beautifully HUGE shrimp that are caught in nearby. Bet they are yummy!














The drive along the beach is full of statuary ... Wish we could have just stopped & wandered along the beach.

















Nothing like traveling to California & Mexico to meet 2 women from right here in central Ohio! Heidi & Terra own & operate an online store, Simon Says Stamp! Heidi & Terra are real sweethearts .. we had great fun traveling in the same group with them. Check out their store - it's a warehouse with thousands of goodies!





One of the projects I didn't get completed on the cruise was Tim's shadow box - so I finished it tonight. I love it! We collaged a 2" canvas with paper from an old book, then a ticket - then covered it all with wax. We also collaged the box's backboard with vintage ledger paper, then covered it with wax, too. It was my first encaustic piece - I liked it so much, I bought beeswax & Suze Weinberg's hot wax applicator from our Marketplace! Yep, I'll be playing lots more with wax! Tim supplied us with all of the pieces/parts - his Ideaology, birds he'd purchased just for us, Heidi Swapp rub-ons & bling, an Ikea shadow box ... then we each did our own thing. The little photo here in mine (on the left side, under Tim's filmstrip ribbon) is a picture of T's great-grandfather.


More to come....
