I love your color combinations, totally unexpected and they work so well together!  Like a beautiful kaleidoscope of color!

I think it's just a condition of ourselves that we have to accept, this feeling that we have to make every single piece of art or craft that we touch be the very best that we could produce. I need to work on an art journal this weekend and I've been putting it off, because I'm afraid of doing it wrong. :)  Silly, really.  Thank you for sharing!

In the process of trying to get my mojo back ( which is proving harder then expected) I have spent this afternoon creating some op art style art. It was just something different! In a way I am pleased with it, in a way I am n...

You can't call yourself authentic if you're not speaking the truth, but only saying and doing what works
Introduction
With a passion for arts and crafts, a degree in Business Management, and a background in Online Marketing, I often find myself having a total identity crisis. I'm now involved in the wonderful world of letterpress printing and you can sometimes find me in my print studio.  I love Steampunk, weddings, British Romantic Comedies, sewing and quilting, paper crafting, making jewelry, the UK Union Flag, fingerpainting, photography, rainstorms, shabby, industrial and prairie chic, unicorn hunting, pancake eating and needle felting. I love it all, no matter how crazy and broke it makes my husband.

my husband and i found the ratings of this restaurant to be ridiculously kind. i had the ny strip steak, which was absolutely disappointing. my husband had the chicken in puff pastry and we could have had better flavor by buying a frozen marie calendars pot pie. i'll give a thumbs up to the belgian beer, which my husband enjoyed. the french fries are completely over rated, orleans cafe at disneyland has better fries! come on people!

beware, this place is over rated. we stood in the entry waiting for at least 10 minutes waiting for them to greet us. later, we saw the owner knock a cloth off the champagne bucket onto the floor and then pick it up and put it back on the bucket. not surprisingly, this restaurant was shut down a short time later on april 7 for a cockroach violation. food was average and prices were high.

my husband and i had a lovely breakfast here. the location is in historic san juan capistrano and the outdoor patio with the fountain melts all of your stress away. prices are a little on the high side, but it is well worth it!

my family and i ate at the ladera ranch location. if you don't mind loud, it's a great place with lively music and an upbeat bar scene. my son's favorite was the mac n cheese, it was really, really good! also, if you enjoy frequenting locations seen on "the real housewives of orange county", this is your place!

run, don't walk, away. reviewed in westways magazine and well rated, so we gave it a try. garlic bread was dry, the salmon and crab cakes were fishy, and the scampi was overcooked. dessert was a premade frozen thing we could have bought at the market. and we had to put up with some drunk guy waxing poetic about the sailboats tipping in the wind. i wish we had read the reviews here first! the best part was the baby bunnies scampering on the lawn.

my husband and i were disappointed. i had read the reviews and was expecting a great experience. what we found was mediocre. you have to sit inside if you want a mimosa, as they aren't allowed to serve alcohol at their outdoor tables. i'm not sure if it was the sausage from my husbands dish, but i was in pain 20 minutes after eating. we also had to ask for our check three times.

as a prelude to our evening seeing wicked, our visit to lucques was pleasing. we arrived during late afternoon, so it wasn't as romantic as it could have been, however, the patio is nice. highlights of the meal were the almonds, salt and olives, as mentioned by another reviewer. also, the tempura softshell crab was surprisingly delicious, considering i'm not a fan of seafood. the service was fantastic and friendly. i would go to this restaurant again and recommend it to friends.
