Funny face Friday #facial #treatyourself

I picked up a face mask to treat myself the other day.  This one is a rose infused.  You put the mask over your face and just let it dry.  No wash up after required.  In the meantime, you look like this for about 10-15 minutes while you dry out.

Maker Monday on Wednesday stamping metal and making necklaces #maker #jewelry #kpop

I needed new projects to work on, but haven't had any inspiration to go with.  I finally went with the current thing in the house (kpop) and ways to support the groups.  The first photo is both the good and the bad.  I stamped group names on the front and engraved the Korean names on the back (or tried).  I got better as I went.


I did a necklace for my daughter and one for me.  This is my current finished product.  Not totally happy with it, so it'll likely change as I figure out how I want to fix it.



Selfie with daughter as I was trying to take my finished photo above.  If you look close enough, you'll see her over my shoulder above.

JapanFest 2016 Cooler Japan #taiko #matsuriza #kabuki #pokemongo

My kids and I have gone to JapanFest for the last several years.  This year was no exception, especially since I was anticipating their 30th anniversary.  I didn't take as many photos as I usually do, but I did get a few.  These were from the floral display.


I always have to see the Taiko demonstration.  This year it was enjoyed by a slo-bro as well.

There was a Kabuki theater this year for the first time too.  I loved the performance.


There's always fun to be seen and enjoyed, whether it's the food, the goodies, or the environment.

If you happened to go to JapanFest this year, they're asking for your input.  A fairly quick survey is available from here.

Downtown Norcross' Atlanta British Car Fayre

This is one I usually check out by myself.  I love looking at the cars.  I'm not a gear head, though, so don't expect conversation along those lines.  The pictures below are just some of what I saw.

2016 Atlanta Korean Festival Evening concert

As a practitioner of a Korean martial art (Choi Kwang Do) and because my daughter is into K-Pop, we decided to check out the Korean festival this past weekend. We made it Friday night to the concert. While we didn't understand anything that was actually said, we did enjoy the music and the dancing. I will admit, we skipped out a little early, but I wasn't able to get very many good photos.



There were these ladies performing on cultural instruments.

Then there were the drum dancers (my favorite).


Due to volleyball and tiredness, we didn't make it to the main festival Saturday.

Mount Saint Helen from Johnson Observatory #Washington

On our last day in Washington, we drove around to Johnson Observatory.  The view of the caldera and volcano itself was awesome.
