I wanted to get back into sharing with WOYWW and I have been doing a few crafty things but haven't taken the time to photograph them or my desk this week! I do have a picture of some tags I made recently for a class I am going to be teaching this Thursday at Scrap That. I really have a lot of fun crafting but seems like a lot of things keep getting in the way!
Stamping Ground for more information.
Heather and I took a cruise from Barcelona Spain to New Orleans on Carnivals latest fun ship the Sunshine. I have always wondered what a transatlantic cruise would be like and thanks to Michael and Heather generosity I now know. 16 days about a ship with only 4 stops was an adventure to say the least. We stopped in Palma de Mallorca, Malaga, Spain, Las Palmas in the Canary Islands and Grand Turk in the Caribbean...the Caicos or Turk islands.
I think Heather is awesome subject to photograph and look at these 2 photos of her side by side...
|24 hours and no sleep!|
The first one was at the airport in Oklahoma City waiting for our tickets and the second photo was after we had pretty much been up 24 hours and been in airports and on airplanes the whole time. I am sure I didn't looks as good and she was still full of energy! We didn't stay in Barcelona any time we flew in then caught a bus to the docks to get the ship. Next time. Barcelona is a beautiful city and I have been there before but unfortunately Heather hasn't.
Our first port of call was in Palma de Mallorca where we walked around town a bit, looked at the cathedral and had coffee with some friends.

In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Canary Islands was an interesting town to visit. Unfortunately I was still under the weather and didn't go anywhere but to a pharmacy and grocers before having some paella with Heather and heading back to the ship.

During our sea days we spent a lot of time on deck sitting and reading, walking about the ship,
|our favorite spot!|
|My favorite view!|

|Back of the ship see the funny looking brown pods? Most uncomfortable place to sit ever!|
|Water water everywhere!|
|I was a hot day and I thought I was melting...|
|I think Heather was getting embarrassed when I ordered my 3rd margarita at Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville....They don't skimp on the Tequila either!|
|made a purchase of 2L tequila while on the island...too cheap to pass up! No I didn't have any difficulties getting back on the boat!|
We had 3 more days at sea in the Caribbean before we made it to New Orleans and home.
|Happy Campers...we had a blast!|
