Traveling around downtown Tokyo!

Hey guys, I know I haven't written on here for a long while.  But i've been pretty busy with my husband getting deployed once again and my two crazy babies that keep me on my toes.  I've been able to have some relief of my children by just working one to two days a week.  Just to get out and to have a little spending money.  :) 
Well this last weeked on the 1st of October I went with some good friends to downtown Tokyo.  It was very fun and I was able to get a good workout at the same time, with my 19 pound 1 year old strapped to the front of me.  My shoulders were done by the end of the night, but all in all we made a good headway around Tokyo.  Here are some pictures of the sights we saw.  I hope you enjoy.

Thanks for looking.  I hope you all have a good rest of the day.

Long absence

I know i've been on a long absence lately, but I have a huge open house scheduled for the 6th of August with a fellow stamper (Stampin' Up) and i've been working like crazy to get some fun samples ready for it.    There will be pictures to come a little later, kind of want to keep everything under wraps until the open house.

Hope you all have a good day.  Thanks for looking!

Kamakura July 2nd 2011

We had some fun in the sun at Kamakura, Japan.  The drive down there wasn't very fun, since it took us about 3 hours to drive about 30 miles.  Ah gotta love the roads here.  Only problem is most are only two lanes wide and most of the roads we took were one lane wide, plus a bunch of lights.  Not fun at all...but took some fun photos.  Hope you enjoy.

Bye, bye!!!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day.
