A great find! 20 March 2013

Hello everyone!
 
It's only a few more days before I go on vacation! I can't wait!  But, before I go I have to show all of you a great find that I came across in my husband's office.

 
Can you believe it? This is amazing.  I have a tone of old pictures I would love to scrapbook one day of course and this tool will come very handy.
 
I had to give it a try immediately, so here is a page I started.  I'm missing the title because I didn't have the right color of alpha for it, and I was too lazy to use my Cricut.  My inspiration for this picture came from Mercytiara
 
 
 
Stay tuned!

Back again!

March 17, 2013
 
Hello everyone,
 
It's been a long time since I've posted.  I've missed it though. I've just been so busy, and part of it is because I decided to start doing Project Life.  I started kind of late in the year, end of February to be exact, but I think it's going pretty well so far.  I'm not using what most all of you are using or doing.  First, I'm not doing a 12 x 12 layout. I'm working on a 8.5 x 11 layout, and I'm doing a week per page, not a two page layout. The reason why is because I really wanted just to try and see if I really like Project Life or not, and so far I'm loving it.  I think that I might be changing to a two page layout when I have more things to share about that week.  I don't understand why it took me so long to start Project Life.
Other than that everything is well.  Health is getting better; I'm exercising a little more and I'm setting new goals every day. 
I'm getting ready to go on vacation soon, which I've been waiting for I don't even know for how long. 
Stay tuned for pictures of my PL and vacation!
 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Crazy Friday

February 8th, 2013
 
Hello everyone,
 
Today was a really crazy day.  I started the day taking my daughter to her Physical Therapy appointment for her ankle.  Nothing big, but she needs to stregnthen her left ankle in order to continue doing well in ballet. I came back home and, to my surprise, I had a package waiting for me by the door.  I wasn't expecting it until next week, but woo hoo!  I had taken advantage of a little sale that is going on on Cricutmachine.com and this is what I bought:
 
 
Yes, believe it or not, I did not have a Yourstory until today, but even though I had the same paper trimmer, I ordered the bundle.  $30.00 I mean come on! You can't let that pass!
 
I always wanted the Cricut stuffed animal, but for some reason I've never ordered it, and I'm glad I didn't because it just cost me $5.99!
 
Another item I didn't have was a silicone sleeve protector for my Gypsy, so I went ahead and ordered two.  A pink one and the cherry blossom one. $3.00 each.

 
And, lastly, I got some cricut mats for my Cricut Create. It came in two packages of two with a set of cutting blades for just $14.99.
 
I believe I got a pretty good deal with everything.
 
 
Ok, going back to my day, of course I had to stop to open that box. Right after I took care of my dogs, I cooked and before I noticed it, it was time to leave the house again to take my daughter to get some pictures taken for some auditions she is going to in the next few weeks.
 
I left my daughter at the dance studio, I came back home to take care of the dogs again and did some laundry. While that was going on, I vacuumed, cleaned my kitchen, answered some emails, made some phone calls, and OMG! it is time to go and get my daughter again. 

 I picked up my daughter, and on my way back home she told me that she was very hungry and that she couldn't wait to get back home, so, I stopped to get her some food and she said, no mom, I don't want you to buy me food, I want to invite you to dinner, you do so much for me.  Isn't that sweet from her.  We went to Pollo Tropical and the food was delicious.

Now we are finally home, very tired, but as I promised, here I am making sure I blogged.

Stay tuned!

Alice

I AM BACK!!!

Thursday, February 7, 2013.
 
Hello everyone, after almoust a year out, my daughter has convinced me to come back to my blog. First of all I have to be grateful to God for keeping me alive, to my dauhter and husband for always support me and last but not least I have to mention that during the past few months I have been watching videos on YouTube that have been very inpirational to me.  And I will like to say thanks to those people that indirectly touched my heart and kept me going: The Pink Stamper, Crafty Gemini, Cricutologist32820, Organized like Jen, etc.  It is been so long and a very busy year between homeschooling, driving my daughter to and from ballet, crafting, my dogs, being a house wife, etc,  etc, ah and I cannot forget the fibromyalgya,  But I am back and with the support of all of you I'll be doing my best to keep you up to date in everything that is going on in New Life New Beginning. 
In the next few days I will be posting pictures of my latest projects.  So stay tuned to everything new that is to come.

12 MAY 2012 Fibromyalgia Awarenes Day

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my first blog hop. I am so honor to have an excellent group of ladies who decided to take the challenge with me and be part of this blog hop with such a short notice.
Today I want to let everyone know that I am also a Fibromyalgia patient and I don't want anybody to think that we can't do things. We just do them in different ways. It may take us longer but we get there. To all Fibromyalgia patients, please know that you are not alone. We are here for each other.  There is HOPE for everyone. 
HOPE is my inspiration for my project. Please enjoy.













Please don't forget to leave a message and follow our blogs, and good luck participating for the grand prize.
