Another Hiking Adventure, This Time Waterfalls...

I don't know if you've been noticing, but i've been going on a lot of hiking adventures lately. And i've got to say I'm LOVING IT!! I'm so glad that I have a group of friends that love to go on adventures. Here are a few (ok a lot) of pictures of some of the waterfalls we hiked to this weekend. We had planned on hiking to two waterfalls since they were on the same trail but then on our way back home we stumbled upon (we like to think undiscovered) a third waterfall right off the highway a ways.

I warn you there are a billion pictures

waterfall no.1

waterfalls no.2


stone castle, it was pretty cool. I secretly live here...

these were our (newly discovered) waterfalls :)

yes, we encountered a rare animal while hiking. We encountered a rare hiking cat. :D

Just a Seashell

I have been super excited of all the wonderful rocks that i've bought the other day at the Rockhound's Pow Wow and so i've been busy at work trying to invision the identities of these beauties. So far here is one of the shells that i've wire wrapped :)

Rock n' Roll

Yesterday was the first day of the Rockhounds Pow Pow here in town and I kinda went crazy will all the beautiful rocks and gems and everything else they had! I couldn't resist the pretty rocks calling my name saying "Karina, take me home with you!" so I took some home with me! I can't wait to start making things with them!!

I can see A LOT of wire wrapping in my future!

I spent a whole afternoon this last weekend and updated (part of) my store website, and I've got to say I'm pretty proud of myself. I love the way it looks now compared to how it used to look. It's so me.

Wire Wrapped Crystal

This was my first time wire wrapping anything that didn't have a pre-drilled hole in it!! I love it!! I did this for a friend of mine and this beauty is destined to be a pendant on a necklace!!
