Part One - Miami


To much work to post all my vacation photos at once so I will share them with you over the next few weeks. We took a one week Carvival Western Caribbean Cruise starting from the Port of Miami with stops in Grand Cayman,  Isla Roatan in the Honduras, Belize, Cozumel & then back to Miami. My first impression of Miami is that I really didn't care for it...didn't get good vibes at all...I did however find the history of the area very interesting. We took a city tour, an Everglades & Gator farm air-boat excursion, went to South Beach, took a boat tour of the Port of Miami & the coastal homes of the rich & famous...lots of tacky tourist outings.We then hopped on our Cruise ship where we joined my brother & his family for a week of frivolity & adventure...hope you enjoy the pics.

I am slowly getting back to work...created my first miniature bear & I am completely enamored of him...will post photos of this piece soon. We finally listed our home this week...hate this part as we have to keep the house so spotless...wish us luck for a quick & successful sale. Thanks to everyone who has stuck by me through this trying time & who sent my family well wishes after the passing of my father in law...you are all so amazing & thoughtful!!! 
Wishing you all a cozy winter full of creativity, warmth & well being!

& One Big Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. Friends...
