Muir Woods and a publication 26

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, April 14, 2013 @ 9:38 AM | , , , , , , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are all having a great weekend! Scott and I are having a great time visiting Jerry in San Francisco :) Yesterday we went hiking in the breath taking Muir Woods National Monument park. We actually got lost because we took the wrong turn and our 2 hour hike turned into a 5 hour hike but it was well worth it! Today we are going to rent bikes and ride around the Golden Gate State Park

Here are some photos from our hike yesterday: 
My boys ;)
 Jerry and I :)
 560+ acres of these magnificent California Redwoods:
 Some beautiful wild flowers along the trail:


 I'm very honored and excited to share with you my first mixed media mini album that I recently had published in the awesome Northridge Publishing Create: Mini Album Series. Surely I sound like a broken record BUT I truly believe having something published for a crafty girl is like winning the paper crafting lottery! If you want to see some beautiful projects of all sorts, please be sure to check out some of the MANY Northridge Publishing magazines! 

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! I will be back at Midnight Eastern, April 15th to share some fun MFT projects ~ hope to see you then!
Be Sweet :)

Thanks for the memories. I remember visiting Muir Woods on a 3rd grade field trip. I am sure I would appreciate it much more now than back then.
