What a trip!

I went completely insane when I heard that Puscifer was going to put on some shows in Vegas! I thought, "All those lucky a-holes get to see Puscifer!"
After a bit of 'what-if-ing' me and the hubby decided to go for it.

We found an awesome room rate at a four star hotel and we even scored some super SWEET seats for the show too!

I drove the whole way to Vegas and we checked in to the hotel kind of late. We ended up drinking a bit!

The next day we got up and hit the breakfast buffet then went back to bed!
Later on we went to check out the strip..
I had some super high hopes for Las Vegas. I wasn't sure what to expect but I knew it would be fun! I had more fun in my hotel room than on the strip... more fun on the road than on the strip. The strip is cheesy, crowded and dirty.
It's just not my thing! Maybe if I liked to gamble it would have been a completely different experience.

Then there was Puscifer! :) The absolute best part of the trip!
I have to say that the Pearl Theater in the Palms is such a neat venue! I absolutely love how small it is and there is a bar on every level just outside of the doors that lead you to your seats! The ushers or security are all dressed up like giant douches but that is an easy flaw to overlook.
Wow... Puscifer delivered!! It was an amazing performance by Maynard James Keenan and the whole crew. The skits were funny and the crowd was really into it!
We met a little family who flew in from Switzerland just to see the show!
I had the whole experience, someone even spilled beer all over my feet. Good times.

It was an experience but next trip I'm going back to Cali!

As Featured in the Etsy Gift Guide

I came home from the post office and hopped right on CraftCult to check my views for my new Heart Shaped Cake Pendant and whoa!! I had over a hundred views on it! I knew it was a mistake so I checked my username on Featsy.... Yup. It was a mistake! I wasn't featured. :(

It bummed me out so I logged on to Etsy and there was Heart shaped strawberry
cake with cherry frosting! It is the VERY FIRST item in the 'My Funny Valentine' Gift Guide!

I have gotten many views and hearts so far. I'm just enjoying the ride.

Calorie-free Confections

Just finished these two cuties last night! So proud I am! :)
I'm inspired to make more sweet little fake foods so stay tuned for more calorie-free confections! :)
BTW, they are available in my shop and I can do other 'flavors'! ♥

V is for....

VEGAS! I recently learned that Maynard Keenan is packing up his Puscifer and heading out to Las Vegas to perform for us lucky fans! Three nights ONLY, Feb 13th, 14th and 15th, and I will be there for the final night!

My hubby and I almost automatically started planning a little weekend road trip. We found some VERY decent tickets which should be arriving tomorrow. A friend will be joining us too!

This will be my first trip out to Las Vegas and I have to say that it has been way too long since my last trip out of town. As a matter of fact, this will be my first trip with my husband and no kids since we got together eight years ago! Um, yes. Long overdue.

Still have a bit of planning to do but nothing major. I'm bursting at the seams to get out of town and see this show.

Warm me up.

Yay! My wrist warmers are complete. I finished my first cabled knitting projects on my home made dpns and I could not be more pleased with the outcome!
The problem is that the weather couldn't be more lovely here in Tempe! It's supposed to reach a dreamy 79 degrees out and I will not be sporting my newly finished project.
Poor me, 79 degree weather! ;)
