Okinawa Sea Postcards

Just thought I'd share a bit of my postcard collection. 
For those of you who don't know I am currently active on 
I love postcards! 
I was fortunate enough to inherit my grandmother's collection 
as well as continue it with my own travels and those of my friends.
Here are a few of my sea views collected while on the Okinawan islands.

Hexis, quotes and motivation

I can't tell you why, but my beads are ignoring me. I sit there and piddle and tidy and put items together, but nothing gets made. So I'm being creative in other ways right now. 

Yesterday I finished my Christmas card book for 2013. 
I didn't take pictures, but HERE is the tutorial I did for them before.

I thought I was going to make this PIN. I think my hexagons are too big though. 
 Not bad for a first attempt at hexagons. I love it so much. So I'll turn it into some sort of pouch.

Then I finally did something with those glitter push pins I made so, so long ago.
I typed and printed some of my favorite quotes off pintrest, and 
used a few pins to hold them on cork coasters.
I've added them to my inventory at a local gift shop where I sell some of my things.
Sorry I always take pictures when I finish a project and with the boys home that is always at night. starts back in the morning! Yep, I'm one of those moms who's super excited about that.

Other than that I'm searching local shops for the rest of my set of Disney toys. 
They come in Kinder eggs (which are banned in the US).
I only need Ariel, the colored Minnie and the mystery figure to complete my set.
The last time they did a Disney set I found the mystery figure 
in the 4th egg and forgot to complete the set.
I know it sounds silly to spend money on these things,  but my little sister LOVES Disney. 
My son will eventually relinquish these to her so I try to find as many as I can 
since she can't buy them in the US.

Alrighty off to bed because real life kicks back in in just 11 short hours.

Oh hey is anyone out there interested in a blog hop involving quotes, words or anything to do with letters? I'm rolling an idea around and might just host my first blog hop for my birthday (in April). What do you think?
