A Few Projects and Duran Duran!

I have so many photos to upload from the past few summer camping trips that I am procrastinating and am instead going to post a few photos of a few gifts I made recently. ;)

I sent this to my sister since I figured she'd enjoy this rare photo of her actually willing to pose and smile. {I am sure it has everything to do with her niece and nephews surrounding her!} This picture was taken in a very large downed and hollow redwood tree at Memorial Park near Pescadero, CA.



I also made this mini-book for my dear friend Jennifer who flew out from the East Coast to visit me for 4 days. I knew I wanted to make an album for her but when I saw these extra large playing cards at the gift shop at Alcatraz Island during our tour I knew it was fate for me to buy them. LOL










In 3 days we managed to:

score a free upgrade to a suite at the Fairmont with an incredible view of the Bay
shop at Union Square
ride a cable car
have a drink inside of the Tonga room & dance to "Hungry Like the Wolf" on the dance floor :)
take the Alcatraz Island tour
visit Ghiradelli Square
visit Pier 39 {and most importantly the sea lions!}
shop on the Haight/Ashbury
see Golden Gate Park
drive on the Pacific Coast Highway and the Marin Headlands
tour Muir Woods
and lay in the sand at Stinson Beach

I was exhausted by the time Jennifer left but was so sad to see her go.

Oh - on a side note, I saw Duran Duran at the Fillmore in SF last week. They played a great set to a sell-out crowd. I will readily admit it was my 9th Duran Duran concert since they reunited back in 2004. So, yes, that would mean I am a full-fledged Duranie!

I managed to win a meet and greet with the band after the show although only 2 of the 4 band members showed. Here are my photos with Simon Le Bon and John Taylor {excuse the latter with the deer-in-the-headlights look!}





A photo of me and my friend Lisa after finding out we both won the meet and greet.
