Giles is back from his stay with waterbaby! He had some last minute adventures, so his album is still coming, but she sent back all his souvenirs with him. And there's so many great things!

Opening the box...


Look at it all!


She made me the best bat bag - complete with adorable "Giles" California license plate tag:


Quite possibly the single cutest LV accessory ever. She found a Giles-sized sombrero!! OMG I love it!


This is so neat. It's a shirt from a MLK Jr breakfast and there are a deck of "cards" with images and quotes of former felons who turned around their lives. Also, my own Hollywood Union pen, jumping frogs, a pressed penny with the space shuttle turned into a magnet, a wood turtle, and pierced paper banner.


Darnit, this pic came out blurry. I'll have to take another. But it's two dinner plate sized "pot holders" that you use under your plates when they are hot so you don't burn your hands or laps. (We don't have a dining table so we eat on the couch and this will come in handy!) One is even palm tree fabric!


Waterbaby also crocheted Giles his own hat/scarf combo - complete with little ear holes. Aw...


I love everything! I can't wait to see more of his adventures. If his gifts are anything to go by, there's a lot of fun for him to share with me!

Alby had a lot of fun on his stay so hopefully that conveyed in his album! When I took on a second partner for the round, I needed to buy a second scrapbook and I thought the pineapples and flamingos were a hysterical way to celebrate his trip to Florida. Cheesy

The metal deer magnet I picked up over the holidays because I thought it was cool. Wink And yeah, the pouch came from the pow wow.

I love your Timmy monkey! Hee hee, how perfect he now has a new magnet celebrating the Clearwater store opening too!

Aw, McCoy is cute! Welcome to wonderful world of Little Visitor, mandykaye! I'm sure you'll quickly become as addicted as the rest of us to playing tourist in your city, and looking for opportunities to take pics with your plush pal. Cheesy

Anana isn't quite back from his last trip yet and I'm already signing him up to head out again!  Cheesy
Clara isn't back yet either but she's heading right back out too! Grin

So, let's see...I live in Tampa, Florida and I run my own business, PhoenixFire Designs both online on etsy as well as doing shows/markets locally various Saturdays. (Mainly October - May since the summers here are too hot to be outside all day both for vendors and for shoppers so our market season kinda dwindles down and takes the summer off.)

I'm artsy and craftsy. I also am a big Disney nerd and annual passholder so I try to get out there at least once a month. (I'd like to go more but my husband doesn't so boo, once a month it is.) I like art museums, craft festivals, history museums, going to the movies, geeky things (like there's a few Comic Cons coming up over the summer I'll be attending! I also cosplay!!) and um...a lot of varied things.

I am a tree hugger but not like a crunchy granola hippy or anything (I shave my armpits for example and hate patchouli LOL) but like I enjoy nature and going to the beach or a local park, etc. I'm not religious and I'm proudly and fiercely liberal so I wouldn't want my LV involved in anything pro-GOP/Trump sorta thing. (Sorry but I'm just being honest.)

I like whimsy and fantasy and sci fi and comic books and Harry Potter and Back to the Future is my favorite movie series of all time. I watch Walking Dead but generally dislike gore, zombies and horror ironically. I'm not into mean but snarky and sarcastic is right up my alley.

When I host a visitor, they tend to see some natural locations like the beach and park, plus they tend to go to Disney and explore around the greater tampa bay area. Often they come with me to be a vendor at shows, and any events or outings (like the aforementioned Comic Cons upcoming) they attend too.

So...yeah. Random babbling is random! But that's a little more about me.

Sent in my signup!

Here's Clara hanging out poolside here in Florida before her last outing.

I ran out of toner in my printer last week without any warning. One page printed and then...Hey! You're out of ink! (Well thanks for giving me a warning I was running low!) So I had to order more ink to finish my photo printing. Then I had a show this weekend so I worked for SIX HOURS yesterday (until 3am) on getting the scrapbook pages complete when I started going cross eyed and had to go to bed. In my defense, I'm making TWO scrapbooks.

I'm 95% done with one and 75% with the other. I'll be finishing them today and then I need to pack up. Hoping for mail tomorrow. I know, I'm sorry. Again though, it's two complete packages so I underestimated the time it would take to double the process.

After all this time in Virginia BEACH, Aurora finally got to go to the beach!
MWHAHAHA I *JUST* did the same thing. After being here in FLORIDA with literally MILES and MILES of beachfront (we're kinda famous for it!) I finally ran down and got Alby and Splash a little beachfront view this week!  Grin Cheesy

   

All the pics are printed and sorted, I just need to actually PUT THEM IN THE BOOK. Show tomorrow, so Monday is my designated day for it.

I love all things Back to the Future. It's popular enough but definitely not the kind of thing you'd ever see a swap for just it. Cheesy
