Ok...so I am finally posting. I was so far north that my cell phone barely worked, no tv, no internet and only one radio station. I did actually pay $4.00 for an hour of internet on Saturday, but that did not give me enough time to post photos.
So here is the run down of the vacation...
• We stayed in a cute little cabin. Very rustic. • Zero moose seen (although we spent an entire day looking for them). • No northern lights :( • Kayaking on a lake that looked like glass while it was 48° outside. • A little bit of shopping. • A little detour on the way to the north to Stillwater, MN. Very cool! • We got kind of lost on a forest road. • Beautiful fall colors. • Cool weather. • I saw Canada. • Hiked to the largest waterfall in MN. • Hiked for 6 miles up a mountain on Saturday (I thought my legs were going to fall off ;) • Went to the moose festival in Grand Marais (no moose their either just a lot of shoppers). • Collected rocks and looked for agates. • Had 5 layer chocolate pie at Betty's Pies for breakfast ;)
Now back to civilization. I kind of fell like I need a Target fix now although getting away for the week was amazing!
Last week was a week of fun and this week is going to be awesome too. Last Wednesday we rented a photobooth here at work. It was so fun. We are going to use the photos on our new website. Above are some of the photos Cassie & I took ;)
This afternoon I am off to Northern Minnesota. I am the luckiest girl in the world. I will try to blog from there. My internet obsession might be limited. I will post photos when I can.
The goals for my vacation week are: • see moose • see northern lights • see fall • relax • kayak in the cold
I had the most wonderful surprise when I got home tonight. There is this really cool girl named Kirsten and she made me the most coolest hat! She is a super fast crafter and she does not even need a pattern.
I am the luckiest girl! I can't wait to wear my bear hat.
p.s. it was a little hard to photograph my head, show off the bear hat and take the photo ;)
I have been back from design camp for little over and hour and just got all my photos posted to flickr. I decided if I did not do it right away it might not happen.
We had a great time! I LOVE Minnesota. I think I could live there. The resort was wonderful, the workshops were wonderful, the speakers were wonderful and the people I went with were wonderful and fun. Design camp is such a great weekend. I feel so creative right now.
Mae, Marnie, Mike and I had a great time. Lots of laughs, giggling, making fun of each other and just over all fun. There are so many stories to tell I don't know where to start.
Hi: Welcome to my blog. My place to post the random creative projects in my life. By day I am an art director at an advertising agency. By night I make jewelry. A little hobby I have named; Flatwear Jewelry (jewelry created from vintage silverware).
