UW Wednesday

Diving yesterday was phenomenal and overall the entire day was great, spending time with long time friends is very special.

Here are some of the best shots of yesterday's underwater world.

funny fish (kinda' look like they are mad)
Tarpon Time
Lonely Squirrel Fish
"Chain Moray Eel"- First one I've ever seen!!!
Not 1 but 2 juvenile High Hats... Awesome find!!!!
a closer look at one of the juvenile High Hats- very hard to photograph cause they move a lot!

middle of short week

Today I am off work as we have some friends visiting the islands so we are going to take them into town for a little bit of shopping and then off to do a dive.

Then I am back to work tomorrow but not for long as Friday is also a holiday. So on that day instead of working, our company is giving us a Spa Day as part of our 2 yearly "Employee Appreciation" activities, yey!

We are going to the Hibiscus Spa located at the Westin Casuarina Resort. I have chosen the Aqua Renewal Package that contains; a Mud Wrap, a Vichy Shower, 1 Hour Massage and a Facial... aaaaah, total bliss!

Life is good!

On a different note, I am very happy a lot of people has signed up for my giveaway, can't wait to reveal the winner!

Happy Wednesday!

Crochet Ad

First of all I want to thank everybody that signed up for my Spring Handmade giveaway and for those that qualify for more than one entry, please make sure to leave me a comment for each one so you have more and better chances to win the bag.

So, now go back here and leave me another comment!

Also it's very nice to receive so many complements about my "talent" and crochet skills.. So, today I want to share some very amazing crochet skills applied to advertising.

I am talking about the SUDAFED tv ad that was made by Yan at pica-pau blog, if you have not seen it before, you will see how very amazing it is... check it out.

Also if you want to see some photos of the actual process to make this ad, please visit her blog here.

Unfortunately she writes only in Spanish as she is from Argentina, but you can still get a very good idea of  the actual amount of work put into such a project by just looking at the photos, I find it amazing!

What do you think?

Have a wonderful day :)

In her blog post, she explains how she had to make 5 sets of the whole head with lots of people helping her but she design every single pattern for every organ by herself.... perhaps one day I would be this good!
