Abbey's Gift Bags.

 Made a couple of gift bags for my granddaughter Abbey for her 11th Birthday.

To use on school camps a set that is one of a kind.  To keep all of her nic nacs.

Gave them to her last week and she absolutely loves them, already deciding what to put in them. One has nail polish another has make up.

She is one of a kind always appreciates hand made items.

Trip To South America.

As some of you already know my husband and l took an amazing once of a life cruise around South America recently. 46 days of total relaxation, meeting some very interesting people both on and off the ship.

 Places we visit were wide and varied:   Arrived  Buenos Aires airport after a very long 17 flight via New Zealand.

Itinerary:  Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Fortaleza in Brazil. Barbados, Curacao,  Cartagena, Colombia.  Panama Canal, Puntarenas, Costa Rica,  Manta, Ecuador. Lima, Peru.

Then to Papeete, Tahiti across the date line Auckland,Bay of Island, New Zealand.  Landing back in Sydney, Australia, then home.

Took so many pictures to many to bore you all with. Still sorting and resizing for my albums including memorabilia.

Will possible take me a year still catching up on previous trips.

Looking forward to Alaska/Canada/Japan.
