I have been gone for quite some time. Here in the desert summer means high temperatures, so getting out and about and traveling to cooler climates and higher altitudes is a must and this year I was no exception!
In addition to several weekend escapes, I moved into a different home at a moments notice. This has had a tremendous impact on my lifestyle and I have yet to bring over and unpack the stashes of art materials that I have enjoyed using to create the wonderful pieces of art for challenges and swaps that I would so frequently post on this very blog!
Today, however, I wanted to share the events of the most recent trip that I had taken to visit my sister who lives south of San Francisco, in the magical place known as"Silicon Valley".
The trip was taken to commemorate the visit of 'Abdul-Baha's historic visit to America 100 years ago. It was quite an incredible visit, the San Francisco events theme was "Celebrating World Peace". It was a wonderful trip celebrated with so many family members and friends.

On the Saturday night of the trip, I took a ferry ride with the children from Pier 39 in San Francisco to Sausalito, California. It was such a beautiful evening. The sail over was fun and the weather was perfect. It was dinner time when we arrived, so while the others were seeking a bowl of clam chowder to eat, I became captivated by this sign and ran right over to this place to explore this most intriguing space. I immediately walked in the door and was filled with surprise and wonder with what I saw . The room was filled with absolutely gorgeous works of art. The pieces fantastic, colorful and whimsical. My only sadness was that I would not be in town to celebrate the grand opening event of this wonderful place which took place last night!
This invitation was created for the grand opening event.
