It’s been a while

Wow! I just realized its been almost a month since I last posted!
I’ve been a little busy I guess. During the last few weeks I’ve seen friends, crafted and went on vacation.

Oh how that vacation made me realize how ready I am for summer. I can’t wait for the sun to shine and the weather be above 60. I’m tired of these dreary cold and snowy days. We recently were able to take a trip to Aruba. It was my first trip out of the country and I loved it there. The sun, surf, and warmth were incredible. It was 85 everyday with a 15mph breeze. href=”https://infinitelovecrafts.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/20130312-105457.jpg”>20130312-105457.jpg
Mornings were so relaxing. Up and to the beach for coffee, reading and a beautiful view.

And the rest of the day relaxing with new friends and lovely dinners. We shopped, ate and took a Jeep tour of the island to see more wonderful views. I wish I had more pictures to share but most are still on my cam

<a
One of my favorite dinners was at a restaurant called Marandi. There were 16 in our party and we had a huge table on the deck over looking the ocean and a fabulous view of the sunset. It was wonderful.

But what a rude awakening it was upon our return to the north. Haha. We left sunny skies and returned to gloom

But getting home was great. I missed the kid and it was nice to hug him. So much so that I kept him home from school the next day for mommy time.

Since being home I’ve tried to get back into the crafting groove. I’ve tried my hand at more tutus and flowers. I like trying new things and was excited when I figured out how to make a flower. I’m still working on not burning the edges to much but I’ve been happy with my results so far

A little more practice and I think I’ll get it.

I have also decided to take piano lessons. Every Tuesday I will be learning away. I’m pretty excited but very nervous. I haven’t played an instrument in almost 20 yrs. And that was the trumpet in 7th grade. Wish me luck!

Hope everyone has a great week!

    Welcome back and let me encourage your piano playing. My advise to an adult learner is “don’t think just do!” Don’t assess or compare. Give yourself 2 years and you will be delighted with the results. I enjoy a bit of tinkling myself. It gives me such joy. I am practicing with a friend to do Christmas carol duets for a carol party, end of the year.
