one sheep, two sheep.

Last night, I could not fall asleep. Yes, I tried counting sheep, but at around 2:30 in the morning, I was still wide awake. I figure I’d write a post to keep me from feeling like an insomniac, but I was having major writer’s block. I was as if my fingers came to a standstill on the keys.

Anyway, Friday was a WONDERFUL day. The weather was nice, and it really started to feel like spring. Gloria thought it would be fun to enjoy the warm weather, and we did just that.

I thought it would be fun if went out to grab some lunch and then do some SHOPPING! …and that’s basically what we did. We didn’t stay out too long because we both had to go home and work.

Saturday’s plans were TIRING. I started my day off by hitting up the post office; I am there so often that the post office workers know me, haha! Isn’t that sad and slightly pathetic that I have befriended the people at the post office?! πŸ˜‰ Anyway, if you are a winner of a recent Kiki Art giveaway, make sure to look for that in the mail because it’s headed your way.

Later during the day, we decided to drive up to the city to get some photos from Twin Peaks. None of us had driven up there before, even though we’ve been to the city a million times. Scott, my brother, had even lived there for a couple of years, and he still had never been up to Twin Peaks. …so yup, off to check out the view of San Francisco.

The view was incredible. Check out some of the photos I took from up top:

Usually San Francisco is overcast with fog. It was a actually clear!

Scott enjoyed the view from up top!

The Bay Bridge is to the right, and that main street is Market Street.

Gloria nabbed the camera from me and took this photo.

Here's the view of the Golden Gate Bridge from Twin Peaks. Doesn't this photo look like a painting?!

Maui and I hanging out at Twin Peaks!

The crazies seemed to enjoy the view too! πŸ™‚

One word for this picture - HOOLIGANS!

We stayed until the sun went down to get the night view. It was GORGEOUS!

If you are ever in the area, you should definitely drive up to Twin Peaks. It’s a great view of the city of San Francisco.

As for creativity this weekend, I didn’t really get much done. Last week, however, I finished a couple of projects.

I created a layout using a sketch that fellow design team member, Lynda, created for Kiki Art. Here’s her sketch:

…and here’s my take on the sketch:

There was some fun news announced over at the Kiki Art blog today, check it out here for your chance to get some free products!

I also finished creating a mini album using Urban Swank papers and the ever-so-useful bind-it-all. I love how this one turned out; it’s so pretty!

If you want to see some of the inner pages to this mini, head here for more photos of this project.

Okay, I’ll stop rambling now. See you all soon! πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday!

  14. Another well-know spot in San Francisco that I haven’t been to despite living in San Francisco for 2 years can be crossed off.
