The second hike we did on our second day at Arches was Landscape Arch. This is on the Devil's Garden trail. Next time we go to Arches I want to explore these trails a little better. We didn't have time to do everything in just a day and a half (because we were on our way to Bryce later that day) so we had to pick at choose what to do. I am, however, glad that we made the time to go see Landscape Arch because this one is really cool and it has some interesting history. In 1991 a huge chunk of the arch fell off (180 tons of rock) and so it's even thinner than it was. There is one section of the arch that's only 11 feet thick!
Not sure what it is about this photo but I just love it!
I went with a few friends on a mommy-field trip to the Spode Dish factory in Malaysia. We had the best time and it was an experience I won't soon forget. We met at Becky's in the morning and got our three car caravan ready to go. We said a prayer, did a cheer and were off at about 9 am. We crossed the border without any issues (except for toll top-up cards) and hit the road. In about an hour we arrived at this little side-of-the-road pottery market. It was typical of a third-world place. True Outlet shopping. There was a nice aluminum roof and some big fans to keep us cool. The plates were very dusty from being outside so long but there were so many lovely treasures. We all had a good time just wandering around searching for new dishes.
I was looking for a set of every-day dishes and anything else was a bonus in my mind. Spode is a European brand that outsources production to Malaysia. Their retail cost is pretty high but we got some amazing deals. After we had be…
My son has been really in to the video game Cup Head this year so, when his teacher said that he needed to make a box for his class Valentine's Day party, we decided to go with something fitting with the theme of Cup Head. One of the main bosses in the game is called King Dice. He's a dice with a face and that's square so it made for a fun Valentine box.
One day while were were shopping for groceries in our local Walmart we noticed they had a whole cart full of boxes. I asked one of the kind employees if we could take one and she gladly obliged. We found a square one and it was just perfect. Below is the process for how we made the King Dice Valentine's box.
Step 1: Procure a square box.
Step 2: Wrap in white paper. I just turned our regular Birthday Party paper inside out and wrapped the box in that. The design shows through slightly but I thought the result was better than me wasting my time finding plain paper and paying for it.
