I have been thinking of a home for my rings and it came along this morning.  My morning started with one of my eggs getting stuck in the carton and cracked in half!  I thought to myself what a way to start my morning.


A few seconds later I envisioned a ring holder!  I thought YES… REPURPOSE that egg carton!  Ahhhh an epic fail turned into a success.  Not a bad morning after all.


All you need is an egg carton, a knife, maybe scissors, and less than 5 minutes.

Whaaa la.  Use the inside of the egg carton as a ring holder.  Take away message: silver lining in the dark clouds.  Happy Saturday.

Summer is drawing near to the end and I am enjoying my little bits of my jasmine blueberry ice tea.

  Fall is approaching fairly quick.  Here on the west coast we have to take advantage of the sun when it is out to play. ENJOY your labor day weekend.


Art, Design, Inspirational juice of the day., Photography, Quotes


A night of just testing out watercolor and creating typography.  A slight fear sneaks in from time to time and to encourage myself this quote came to mind.  Fear can only paralyze you if you allow it to.  Don’t let it win.  Fight back with FAITH.  You can’t have both in one boat..which one will you chose today?

Food, Photography, RECIPES


My oh my!  I heard one of the nutritionist talk about Kale chips a couple months ago and I recently tried these Kale Chips.  I waited too long to have tried these!!  This has been my new crave obsession. I’ve had it everyday for the last 4 days AND it is so simple to make!!  A friend from Detroit visited a week ago and inspired me to eat more whole foods.  I mentioned kale chips and she offered to show me how to make them.  Thanks Kara!  And now I’m sharing them with you if you have not tried it yet.  It is a MUST try.


Baked Kale-01

Ingredients needed: Olive oil, dash of sea salt, and bake in the oven on 310 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  I check in between 10-12 to be sure its not browning too much.  When you see the leaves has flattened onto the cooking sheet and brown tips, its DONE!  Let it cool for a few minutes and then its READY to be devoured.  Make sure to not overlap the kale as it won’t be crisp on the parts that are covered.

Have a HAPPY SATURDAY. I’m getting ready for my electric run tonight. Will update you all soon.

SUNSET at Cannon Beach

Can you tell I’m overly obsessed with my Nikkor 50mm lens? Oye..I need to stop neglecting my other collection of lens.. time to switch it up. Just maybe I’ll use it this weekend. >_<

First for everything..first time snap shooting the sunsets with my Nikon at Cannon Beach.  Make effort to complete the small things on your bucket list!  Sunset at Cannon Beach..CHECK.    Felt hopeless romantic!  Bird flying in the air and couples walking the beach while the sun sets.  Have a GREAT Saturday–SUNSET tonight with your friend (s), pal (s), BF/GF, family or anyone?  HAVE fun whatever you do!

Sunbursts and Water Glistens

First time just focusing on the water glistening and enjoying the sunbursts. Second time at Cannon beach and this was exactly what I pictured.

I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did while capturing them.

Farewell until next time. T2

Update of the Spontaneous day last weekend.  When the sun comes out and play in the NorthWest it is time to not MISS out–my motto since moving to the WEST coast.  Along with being a tour person–it was my first time at Seaside beach as well.  Very different from Cannon beach–good to have varieities.  They are only 7 miles within distance and its so DIFFERENT from one another.  Yes, this fits Oregon very well–its just the way it is here and I love every bit of it.

First stop–Seaside.

While editing my photos of that day, I was in the black and white mode for some odd reason.  Maybe because I might of wanted the more dramatic look AND love for people to paint their own colors.

AJ always end up lugging something somewhere.  >_< Thanks Bro for the help!  Caught him in the moment–even though he didn’t want to admit it–he did enjoy lugging that IGLOO cooler. *chuckles*

After hanging out a little–playing ninja like little kids again–it got a bit chilly.

Walks on the beach is always romantic and sweet! I adore older couples and watching them being sweet and mushy.  REAL love when your all old and wrinkles and the small things are appreciated.

Even the Stella Artois couldn’t keep anybody warm.

Off to Cannon we went.  Haystack rock — we meet again.

More photos to share on next post–I was admiring the sunburst and water glistening at Cannon Beach.

Until then Have a great day and enjoy the nature around you–especially when the sun is out to play.

Thenaday Thursday- St.Pete Bridge

Last December I went home to go visit my nephew back home in Florida and got the chance to catch up with a friend from college.  YES, this post was suppose to happen months ago and it didn’t.  I knew with all the craziness start of the year this post was going to be one of my thenadays.  J, I hope you enjoy and YES it was well worth it going across both sides of the bridge view!

I was lucky to catch this bird in mid-air just perfectly aligning with the St. Pete Bridge.

There was plenty of pelicans sitting on the side waiting for the moment to snatch their lunch off a line of a man working hard in the sun to catch his.  Photos taken with Nikon D80 and Nikkor 35mm lens.  Hope you enjoyed the go out and take advantage of the sun if it came out to play on your side of the town!

Hondo DOG park.

My first time going to the Hondo dog park (Hillsboro) and Remsen was the lucky little man to experience this.  There were plenty of obstacles for dogs to play in and on–Remsen liked the ramp the most.  As you can see on the second photo he decided to sit on the ramp like a king on his throne. Remsen must have felt empowered.  The night was quite chilly as we were out there.  Photos taken with Nikkon D80 and Nikkor 50mm lens.  YES, the 50mm lens is my favorite.

It is favorite day of the week and it started with Remsen today.  Mid-week..that means two more days closer to the weekend.
