May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Las Vegas Part 1-- The Shows

Remember Mike got us tickets to Las Vegas for my birthday? Well, we went this last week. Las Vegas certainly has changed since we were there last which was about 10 years ago. One thing is for sure, it was much more crowded and we were supposed to be there on a slow week!
I wanted to show you some of the highlights of our trip. I took a ton of pictures to scrapbook, but will just pick a few to show you over the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy!

The Price is Right was just plain fun. Unfortunately we didn't get called up on stage, but we enjoyed watching as others won some prizes.
The announcer of The Price is Right in Las Vegas is David Ruprecht shown here with me. Do you remember him from the game show Supermarket Sweep? I do. The host was Todd Newton from the game show The New Press Your Luck. The Price is Right is playing at Ballys.

Later that night after seeing The Price Is Right, we went to Disney's The Lion King. That show was amazing. I can't take pictures in the shows, so you will have to trust me when I say if you get the chance to see this you won't be disappointed. The costumes and the production were fabulous. I was surprised how much the actors sounded just like the characters in the Disney movie. This is currently playing at Mandalay Bay.

And our highlight show...."O"! It is a Cirque De Soleil show at the Bellagio. Oh my, oh my... I didn't want this show to end!!! It was truly mesmerizing. This is a Cirque De Soleil show like no other as much of it occurs under water. The stage has the ability to raise and lower all or parts of it to different levels under the water. I was told the water goes 35 feet deep but I'm not positive. Many of their stage props came up from under water. I felt like the show had a bit of a Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas" feel to it with the costumes and make-up. Here I am standing beside one of the costumes from the show.
What a treat to get to see some of these shows. Tomorrow I'll show you some more Las Vegas treats we enjoyed.
With Blessings,
