Traveling from Boston to Bermuda by Norwegian cruise line with two children under the age of 7 was an absolutely fantastic way to celebrate my son and his wife’s 9th wedding anniversary.
Due to my complicated medical issues, my goal to spend time with my oldest son and his family wasn’t going to involve flying, driving or taking the train. Cruising on Norwegian Gem was the perfect answer, we drove to the cruise parking lot, paid the fee, walked a short distance to the terminal, easily checked in and walked onboard, heading to the buffet.
Norwegian Gem has a children’s Splash Academy program that my 3 yr old granddaughter Gigi loved. For the most part, my 6 yr old granddaughter Adrianna really liked it, we just had to be mindful to promote it as fun for her (not just her parents lol). I also volunteered to have the grandbabies sleep in my room for a few nights so Mom and Dad could spend quality time together.
The photo above is me enjoying the wonderful ocean breezes on the top deck and one of the many beautiful images I took of the hibiscus plants throughout Bermuda.
January 1, 2019 my first sale of the month was a postcard of Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda! Normally it would be one of my images of Sint Maarten which came in second this time. Warm thoughts during a bitterly cold Northeast winter. Thanking customers from Canada, Germany, Sweden and the USA for enjoying my non-niche artsy designs. 🙂
Connecting with people via my various online shops, 13 years and counting, is still an amazing feeling. I literally clap my hands each time an alert hits my inbox.
Thank you so much to my visitors from California to Massachusetts.
Very thankful for my Zazzle customers from: Canada, Virginia, Idaho, Massachusetts, California, Maryland, United Kingdom, North Dakota, The Netherlands, Romania, New Hampshire and Missouri for enjoying my vision of the world through the lens of my Nikon camera, iPad Pro and graphic apps.
I have to admit that I was wildly pleased to see my very first sales posted to my Khoncepts Artsadd shop.
August 1, 2016 was when I opened a shop on Artsadd.com because they sold blank umbrellas that I could add my own artwork to. I use Artsadd to design and buy all of my dresses, however it’s wonderful to finally have some new clients who purchased the type of items that inspired me to give Artsadd a try.
Another amazing and amusing alternative to not being able to go out and take new photos. A beautiful landscape photo of downtown St. George Bermuda taken from the top deck of a cruise ship is transformed into vibrantly colorful “Neon Pop Art” travel gifts.
