Makes Me Smile

I know most people will think these are just strange, but Disney geek that I am, I love them. No they aren't pencils, they are Mickey Mouse knitting needles and point protectors. How cool is that? They were part of a learn to knit kit for kids that I found at JoAnn's and I couldn't resist (I did however, resist the pink sparkly princess set.) They will be perfect for knitting dishcloths.

Here are the latest cards. A birthday card for my Dad. Happy Birthday Dad!!

And an anniversary card for our good friends the Smiths. Happy Anniversary!!

I promise I'll post more cruise pictures soon. I also have a knitting project or two that I need to take pictures of.

The Cruise

Here are a few pictures from our recent Caribbean cruise. I'll do a more detailed post tomorrow after I download all of M's pictures since she took a lot more pictures than we did.

Here is our ship, Independence of the Seas. It is one of the largest cruise ships in the world.

Our itinerary was Belize City, Belize; Costa Maya, Mexico and Cozumel, Mexico. The picture isn't very good, but you get the idea.

One of the great things about Royal Caribbean ships is the wonderful artwork. This amazing piece by Devorah Sperber, is made from 17,760 spools of thread on thin wires. You can check out more of her work here

More pictures tomorrow.
