107 Geocaches

I beat my previous record of 105 caches in one day.... On Saturday I went out with a group of cachers and together we found 106 caches! Because the caches were all puzzle caches, I was able to claim my smiley on a challenge cache as well, making the grand total 107.

I wanted to share a couple of resources for those of you that hate logging after a long day of caching. I am not a fan of logging caches after a day like that! The Geocaching Express Logger certainly made things go a lot faster.

Also if your big into discovering travel bugs, like myself Log Them All! is another good resource. I've yet to use this one, but hopefully it saves time too!

There was some nice geoart in the area of where I was caching Sunday, I thought I'd go ahead and share that too (click the picture to take you to the cache on geocaching.com):

This one wasn't close by, but since Halloween is right around the corner....

Just in the Nick of Time

Finished up this bad boy just in the nick of time. I will have a whole 4 days to display it... But it's done - that's all that matters! This mini wall hanging is just the right size for my cubical at work. It's small, but will brighten up the space. I made and pieced, by hand, all of the hexagons using the EPP method.

I took my first stab at hand quilting. I sucked, therefore this piece has very little quilting. I hope to get better, I have another project that requires hand quilting (I'm really dreading it!)


A BIG thanks goes out to my Mom. Without her, I don't think I would have finished this one in time. She squared off the final piece and finished the binding. Love that woman!

Do you decorate you workspace?

Rotten Apple

Here is the truth. My Apple is FIVE years old and a SLOW piece of SH!T. At times, just downloading a picture is toooorrrrrture. I am a photo person. I have a hard time doing a post without a photo to go along side it. If I bump my computer just right (I'm very god at this by the way) the thing shuts off and goes blank right in the middle of whatever it was I was doing.  Does that explain my absence? I hope so.

Anyhow, My computer is cooperating for the MOMENT.

I went to Vegas for the first time a few weekends ago to meet up with my older sister. It was a very last minute and short trip/visit, but it was good to see her. Vegas was... interesting and crowded. I will never go back to Vegas on a weekend. EVER. Ever. ever. Nope never. Besides seeing my sister and hanging out with her, I enjoyed the fountains at the Bellagio the best!

A Vegas Must See





I neglected to get a geocache for Nevada.... remember all those computer issues I've been having? Yea.

I've been busy crafting.... and occasionally I get an "order" to make a toddler shirt. This is my most recent and favorite.
