Cruise Recovery...

It takes a few days to recover from a vacation!  I am very tired and I have the feeling that the floor is swaying - I guess I haven't lost my "sea legs" yet!  Just before we left I started a new series of "Monday with Martha" posts for Scrappy-Go-Lucky and I will be continuing with the series next week.  Mandy was right when she told me I'd need a few days to get myself sorted out. 


I was able to edit some more photos and soon I will have them more organized.  We were using two cameras and the time must be off on the new camera so my photos are out of order.  I'll be able to sort it all out but it is taking a little longer than I hoped to go through the photos.

Nearly every night we had a "pillow gift" - ProvoCraft went above and beyond to give all of the winners a great experience.  This large Cricut was resting on the bed near the end of the trip.

There were classes with the Hello Thursday bloggers on the "at sea" days.  I'll show these projects soon.  There were some additional projects and evening Make and Takes that were taught by the ProvoCraft Team.  This "Dream"  canvas was one of the projects and Sandie and Deanne did a great job with theirs.

The scenery is just amazing.  This view is from a high look out point on St. Thomas.  One of the guides told us that the lowest recorded temperature in St. Thomas was 61 degrees Fahrenheit and that school was canceled when the temperature reached 65 degrees!

This was one of the "Sit 'n Chill" stations on Half Moon Cay - the private island owned by the cruise ship line (Holland America) that was our last port.  It was incredibly beautiful.

I really enjoyed all of the interesting decorations on the ship - this is the bottom of a barstool at the Lido Pool bar.

These stools were well used by many of the passengers.

Someone pointed out that a Cricut would have been able to make neater letters for this sign!

I need to get some more sleep now.  I am planning on unpacking a few of my new cartridges and doing some crafting tomorrow (in between loads of laundry).  I hope that I feel a bit more "grounded" tomorrow - I never expected to feel seasick on land... 

I hope you have a great week!  It is raining now in our neck of the woods and the snow is melting - spring will be here soon!

  1. Welcome back home. Sounds like you're a New Englander and probably came home to the rude awakening of snow, like we did in upstate NY. I'd so love to do a Cricut Cruise someday.

  2. I can't wait to see some of the fun things that were created on this cruise. We have been on 14 cruises and the seasick on land only happened to me once. It was on our 2nd cruise. Weird, huh? I'm glad it only happened that one time or we might have stopped cruising. Feel better soon.

  3. WELCOME BACK!! I love the photos you have shown so far, and can't wait to see more! Thanks for sharing them! As expected, it sounds like it was a grand trip!

  4. Welcome back!! I am glad yuo had an awesome time on the ship, and you are not the only one who is sick AFTER the cruise. It happened to me everytime we go. Our feeling of swaying lasted always a week. Good luck, I know how you feel!!

  5. Love the photos, Diane. Hope you feel better. You never know about that "Back to the ship" sign. that could be a font ;- )

  6. Glad you're safely home. Sounds like it may be a couple of days before you're back into sync, but just think of all the fun you had! Looking forward to seeing projects from the new cartridges. Take care.

  7. Great pics so far!! I'm glad to hear everyone had a great time :) It probably will take you a few days to get back to normal, but I'm sure that vacation was well worth it! ;)

  8. Welcome back....I think being home the first few days is harder to get over then the actual happily wait to see and hear the great stories and pics you have.....

  9. Welcome home, it sounds like you had a fantastic trip and met up with some fantastic friends. Strange how when you come off a boat you still feel like your swaying isn't it, when this happened to me quite a few years back I was the only one amongst 8 of us so thought it was just me feeling ill but more and more people talk about nowadays.

  11. It always takes me a couple of days to get to feeling right after a cruise. I am ususlly OK when I am up and moveing, Its the laying in bed where I find myself swaying. Cruises are sooo much fun though and I am eagarly waiting to see and hear all about it. You reast up good now.

  12. You were all missed, but so glad everyone had such a wonderful time. Tell me did you have any motion sickness at sea? Funny that you are experiencing motion sickness on land but common for a few days.
    Glad your back but probably pretty tired.

  13. Hi Lady Di:
    Glad you had fun on your cruise. Your pictures are incredible. TFS.
    I am anxious to see what you did there.

  14. Wow, Dianne! You must have had an incredible time!!! :)
