Good bye January!

Happy February 1st! We have made it out of January and into this already second month of 2013... Time is surely flying by but I am happy we are where we are as February is my birthday month, so let the celebrations begin...

This year's February also marks the beginning of the Snake year for the Chinese New Year and since I was born in '77 I am also a Snake, so this IS definitely my year...

Talking about celebrations, tonight I will be working at one of the most exclusive "posh" parties of the island, an Air and Car Show taking place at one of the hangars of the airport. 

It is an invitation only party but I will be attending (along with my hubby) to work on an art display with some original (very expen$ive) Guy Harvey art. And although we are not allowed to sell the art at the party, we are allowed and encouraged to promote it and make some good networking and contacts, so it should be a good and fun night!

The weekend is also here and although I don't have many plans I do want to finish the amigurumi snake I am working on for the upcoming New Year which starts on Feb. 10th.

We have plans to go over to see the Super Bowl, some friends have invited us to watch it on the big screen by their complexes pool, so that should be fun! Are you watching the Super Bowl? If so, any ideas of what kind of finger food can I bring? Suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

Wishing everybody a fantastic weekend!!!

Although today is Thursday I am no posting a Throwback because something much more exciting has come up.

We have a winner for the Cayman Watercolours Giveaway...

Congratulations Jamie, you are the lucky one to win my very first giveaway of 2013!

According to what Jamie said on her comment, she has a brand new apartment that is all "beachy" theme, so I am very happy because this lovely calendar has found an awesome home for the whole year.

Thank you to all my readers that participated, stay tuned for the next giveaway, I am already thinking about it.

Have a great Thursday!!!

Tuesday but Monday...

Today is Tuesday but really in my world it's Monday... But that doesn't change the fact that I am linking back to 10 on Tuesday with Linn & Amber.

As I mentioned yesterday,  I can only think of a few other better ways to start the week than with a Holiday on Monday! Yes, yesterday was spend well by doing anything but working, yippe!

Another great way to start the week is by having a giveaway on your blog [check]. So, if for some reason (although I cannot think of any good enough) you were not here yesterday, please click here, or here or even here to sign up for my latest giveaway, thanks!

The weekend (besides yesterday) was very much fun, on Friday went out with the girls (and the hubby) for Boogie Nights, we had a blast and got down to it with the music! Even the hubby danced, WOW, that was a great and wonderful surprise.

Our dog Sheba is doing so much better from her allergy, but now that she is not itching, it kinda looks like she's lost a hobby and she's got way too much time on her paws to just... nap, drink water, eat, bark randomly at nothing and then nap some more. I am glad she is feeling much better though.

Since I haven't really taken a picture of Sheba lately, instead here's a little portrait a.k.a "masterpiece" hand drawn by me!

You know what really "grinds my gears"? Yesterday we had hamburgers for dinner but when I bough the essentials, meaning buns and patties, either the buns are too small or the patties are way too big. What's up with that? Would it be easier if they are both standard? Is this something that only happens here on the island or is it a worldwide phenomenon? What's your experience in this matter?

On Sunday afternoon we went to the beach and while snorkeling encountered this tiny turtle who just swam by me like waving "hello!".

Also at the beach I took a stroll down the rocks where I found a whole bunch of Silverside little fish, so I decided to put my underwater camera right on the rocks and take a little video of the fish going by.

The video is not the best quality or super excited, but if you feel like watching at least for a bit, here it is.

Also on the video you can see a tiny "Sergent Major" swimming by on the right side of the screen, cute!

I am currently working on a crochet amigurumi snake in honor of the upcoming Chinese New Year of the Snake... Specially because that is my sign as well... Photos to follow when done!

Well, that's it for 10 on Tuesday, wishing everybody a nice day and DO NOT forget to sign up for my giveaway, please and thank you!!!!

First Giveaway!

I cannot think of a better way to start the week than having Monday as a Holiday and being that we are just about getting ready to wrap up the very first month as well, I am here enjoying the day and celebrating it with a giveaway!

That's right, I am very happy to announce the very first giveaway of the year and although this one time it's not a handmade giveaway (as I usually do), it's something that would be useful through the whole year and will make you think of the little tiny island from where I type this very words.

So what is it? Well, I am very excited to giveaway a 2013 Cayman Watercolours Calendar.

This year calendar comes filled with beautiful local artwork and recipes.

But that is not all, the proceed of the sales of the calendar goes toward two local charities; Cayman Hospice and National Council Voluntary Organizations.

Here's how to enter.
