A little R&R...

This past weekend my husband and I headed up to Bass Lake for a weekend of R&R!!! We had an absolutely wonderful time!

On Saturday we packed a lunch and headed up to Yosemite National Park...It was a perfect day for walking around and enjoying the amazing views! Neither of us had been to Yosemite for quite a few years, it just took our breath away...the waterfalls were flowing!! The top photo on the left is Bridalveil Falls and the one below is Yosemite Falls. These photos don't do justice to actually being there!

We also stopped at the Awhanee Hotel...this will most definitely be our next hotel we stay at for relaxation! Every afternoon at 4pm the hotel staff sets up an area for crafting...plus they also have a fabulous fireplace set up in The Great Lounge, perfect place to get a good book and relax!

After a full day of hiking, taking pictures and rediscovering Yosemite it was time to go back to our hotel at Ducey's for our delicious dinner!

If you haven't been up to Yosemite National Park you really must go...it was romantic, fun, educational, interesting and FABULOUS!

Aqua Nails Bar

Over the weekend my mom and I went to the most fabulous nail salon... Aqua Nails Bar ...not only is it totally trendy but the staff was awesome!!! Upon sitting at one of the pedicure stations and dipping my tootsies into a granite bowl filled with lavender scented warm water, I was given a warm scented neck pillow. My amazing pedicure included a great scrub and massage followed by a wrap in a warm scented towel…the cool thing was instead of toe dividers they used warm stones place between each toe!

You have to try it!!!

Masterpiece in Minutes!!!

I know I have told you about Masterpiece in Minutes™ (a.k.a. MIM)…an innovative concept from Duncan Enterprises…Well incase you have forgotten, it’s a one stop shop ceramic station…you pick from 3 vases, coordinating glazes, and your lid embellishment pack (lid to vase & raffia). It’s an absolutely fabulous project for anyone…not only is it so easy to do…but when you see the finish results…AMAZING! You have created an art gallery piece in minutes!

This photo shows the “Ceramic Diva” herself painting a project from MIM! This picture is posted on the Duncan Ceramics website…be sure to check out all the cool ceramic projects and GET GOING ON YOUR OWN MIM!!!

Artfully yours,
