Day 4

I can't believe how time flies by. I have been feeling under the weather since last Tuesday and wish I could do things faster than I can. So much to do and so little time!!!

I leave you here with some happy goodness. This layout was created by this young lady named Kelly. She has a great story behind the tree. I feel that the stories mean so much more than the art we put together girls. Remember to journal your stories!!!!
Cookies, cookies, cookies...they are everywhere!!!!

Look at these pretty vintage trees. The colors are so cheerful!

Oh my, I love this mesh stuff. I went crazy using it when it first came it. It was a huge craze in Puerto Rico and man oh man, them women created some amazing designs with this kind of mesh!

I am really feeling lousy this morning, but thinking about Christmas keeps my spirits up. So on ward and forward my friends!

Hoping you have a fantastic Sunday.

Day 3

Well gotta share here: I had such a lovely time last night with some amazing women. My sister Beth decided to host a PJ party with some wonderful OLD friends. My goodness, we have laughed so hard, and cried a little bit too. I guess great friendships are based on bad and good and as the years go by you can reflect how the bad truly formed us and made us stronger and better people. Anyway, enough reflection here...suffice it to be said that the evening and MORNING was spent with magnificent ladies. (I will post pictures on my December Daily entry on Monday).

Now let me leave you with some Pink Goodness for the Holiday season.
Love these cookies!!!

These vintage wreaths really do remind me of my childhood. My mom had white and bluish ones too. Gotta love a pink room with Damask curtains. Very whimsical and happy if you ask me. :)

This is really pretty. I really like the glass dome. You can put just about anything in them and decorate a simple glass vehicle with whatever color scheme you want.

I am fighting a really bad allergy going on here. It seems to get worse every day. Send a prayer up for me peeps as lots of holiday stuff needs to be done here.

I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and are getting your decorations up and ready for the Holiday's.

Day 2

Ok, gang, I have not had a chance to go and print the pictures so I will probably post on the 4th on my Dec. Daily...I will catch you all up...I promise.
Here is some eye candy....Lots of Dec. Daily's out there. This one was created by Pamela Young.
Tell me these are just not absolutely DARLING!!!!

Of course gotta have a tree...It really is all about the tree people.

I love wreaths. I have created hundreds of them over the years and I love to see how creative people get when using creative items to embellish their wreaths. I love this one and all the yummy ribbon.

Well, I hope you all have a fantastic day and are truly on the way to celebrating the HOLIDAY SEASON!

Thanksgiving goodness

Isn't this just beautiful? I love thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite holidays. It is great to see so many of our family members and some amazing friends congregate every year at this spectacular event. My aunt Celina is the hostess and she truly does an amazing job. I can not wait to see what she has in store for us this year...will absolutely share photos later.
I can't wait for THANKSGIVING DAY!!!
Have a happy day.


Wow...the holiday's are almost upon us. I can not believe it!!!
So much change! I guess it's all good. I have been creating up a storm. I thought I was done for the year....I GUESS NOT!!! LOL. Lots of new projects being created on a daily basis here. I think I have come to terms that I am my most creative when I am under pressure. Sigh...I am not sure if I really like that. I shall have to think about that...but not now...have too much going on.
Anyway, let me share a LO I found from the talented Ms. NIKKI. Gotta tell you, she got me all inspired here! Love the flowers...well, I just kind of love it all! Hope this inspires you to work on something for the upcoming season.

Now, I have got the share this little bit of delight. My funny and baker extraordinaire friend Rhonda shared these babies with me. They were really fun to make and actually more fun to eat!!! For those of you who know me...I HATE TO BAKE...but gotta tell you these were super easy to make. I have no idea where she got this originally from but it's super easy to do!

I am trying to finish off several pending engagements to begin the Holiday Season festivities. I am so looking forward to the Holidays this year. REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THEM. I am looking forward to seeing the cousins, cousins kids, the aunts, uncles, and in-laws. I associate the holidays with family...and that is a good happy thought for me.

Well, gotta go. I shall begin sharing my holiday goodies soon.

Have a happy day!

I am so sad...

I have lost a friend this week and my heart is so heavy. I feel such sadness and the truth is that I breakdown in the craziest places. I had a crying fit in the super market at the Deli...started crying like a baby at school last night...I am so sad.
I grew up in church. That is something we say and sometimes don't even realize the impact it has in our lives. I was a Pastor's Kid and when we moved to Florida was involved in my church to the extent that our friends and social life really did revolve around our church friends. They were our extended family.
We had an amazing youth group who ranged from college bound students to very young funny juveniles.
I met this kid named Hector..he was such a nice puertorican kid. When I say nice...I really mean NICE. This kid was always happy, had a smile on his face and really was a peace maker. He was such a NICE PERSON. I know I keep saying that but that is what comes to mind. He was extremely funny..always coming out with these puertorican sayings...
Hector moved away....
we all grew up....
lead different married, some got divorced and we lived....
Hector would pop into my life and call me every couple of years. We had not seen in other in wow...I can't even remember...He would call me out of the blue...we would talk forever and then he would disappear and come back and we would catch up.
He was so positive, always dreaming and trying to better himself. He was always setting goals...and meeting we know that is a rare thing today.
Hector dreamed big and I am so proud to say that he accomplished so many of his dreams. He was successful...
He loved to was one if not the passion of his life.

Hector and I had been planning a dinner here in my home because he was coming to visit next week. He wanted to introduce me to his wife, he wanted to see the gang. He was so excited. I was getting the gang together and we were going to catch up, eat and laugh...that is what we do best....

I got a call yesterday and they inform me that Hector has passed away. I am not sure how I took it...but I think I raised my voice...I was in shock. I can't believe it. Here I am planning a get together and now I am mourning.

I have spoken several times to his beautiful brother Alex in the last 24 hours. The truth is I pray that this family can find peace and some comfort during this horrible time.

Unfortunately, my sweet friend Hector was involved in an airplane accident where a bad storm was involved and their plane went down in the state of Oregon. Hector, his wife and the pilot passed away.

I ask you my bloggie friends, to please pray for the Moreno family. They have suffered quite a bit in the last several years. So please keep mentioning their names in the Lord's presence.

I am having a bit of difficulty here as I am coming to terms with losing a dear friend. Although I take comfort that we will meet again because I know he is in OUR FATHER'S ARMS...the loss to us is quite painful.

Once again, I come to terms how fragile life is. I continue to feel that we truly do not understand how precious and short life truly is.

Hold your loved one's a little tighter today and make sure you call your friends...and let them know that they mean the world to you.

Going down MEMORY LANE...Bitter....sweet

Have you ever gone back through your albums or altered projects and said: "wow...I love this"!!!! Yet, when you look at that project it brings back other memories? Bitter...sweet...memories.

I was organizing my albums and mini album bin and came across the following. As I looked at the page and album below, it made me realize that although I was seeing and remembering a great memory, a totally different memory had become attached to these projects.

This LO is of my two kids. I loved this picture because at the time, my daughter was not the sweetest little dumpling on the planet towards her this picture truly captured my heart. We spent the day out on a picnic and on the water with my side of the family and friends. We had such a fantastic day at Biscayne Park in Homestead, Florida. Unfortunately, we did not have telephone reception in the area, (although we had no idea that was the case) and when we left the park that day around 6pm, we started getting an alarming amounts of beeps on our telephone's. My mother in-law and my husbands family had been trying to reach us to let us know that my father-in-law had passed away. We were shocked, can imagine.
This is one of my favorite mom albums that I created two years ago. It was completed using my favorite line from Webster's Pages. This is still the most meaningful mom album that I have done. Although you will see a bunch of pictures of mom's that I truly admire, and I absolutely love every page, there is another memory attached to this album.....the evening I completed this album, I was informed that an associate of mine had stolen over $2000 dollars worth of merchandise from me. Sad but true.
I can not even begin to tell you how crazy this sounds. You can have a fantastic memory of something or someone, yet attached to that memory, there can be something sad or horrible remembered also.

I have come to realize that life is like that. There is so much good that occurs in our lives, yet there are horrible and sad things that happen also. I truly believe that is a good thing. We appreciate the good because we know how sad or horrible the bad moments in life are. I have chosen to remember the good and the bad, because it makes me stronger and hopefully wiser. Everything even the minimum that occurs in our lives, is a lesson. The good and the bad can teach us something. These lessons can teach us to be better...because when we know better...we do better.

Here is to remembering and focusing on the good and the happy...and the bad and sad.

Have a great day ladies!!!
