Happy Monday everyone!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  I know I'm trying to be entusiastic on a Monday, but..... I can't help it because I did.  Remember I  was helping a friend that was sick last week.  Guess what? Today when I saw her, she had a suprise for me. And these are a few things she had for me...

A pack of K&Company 12x12.

A Draw & Gild kit.

And this is what it came inside of the kit.

Don't you think my friend is amazing?!  I helped her last week because it came from my heart to help. This is her way of say thank you :).
I'm so excited about everything. Of course tomorrow I'm going to make a Thank You card for my friend.  So come back to my blog to look at the pictures of the card tomorrow!

Have a great night everyone!

Hello everyone,
Today's blog will be a little different. Enstead of talking about crafts, I am going to talk about what we ladies do to make ourselves more pretty than what we already are. Remember, we are always BEAUTIFUL, please don't forget that.  In this busy life that we all have,we sometimes tend to forget that we even have nails if we don't have a scheduled nail appointment. Or at least that's what happens to me.  So today I decided to give my self a little manicure. I filed my nails and shaped them, cleaned the edges and then applied some nail polish.  And this is the result:

Nail polish used: Chanel 201, Sahara Beige.  (Don't know if it is discontinued or not)

I also applied a clear coat before and after the Chanel nail polish.

Hope to see you soon! :)

I took care of some errans I finally sat and made my daughter a card. Here is a picture of it. Enjoy!

Here is the list of materials I used:

White Stampin' Up card stock. One piece is 3/4 in x 2 3/4 in, distressed with gold Studio G ink. Second piece is 1 1/4 in x 2 3/4 in, I also used  EK border punch, and distressed with gold Studio G ink.

Hi everyone, sorry I was gone for so long,  I just needed to help a friend that was sick.  Of course these past few days I was running around trying to get everything organized like a normal mom on a regular week.  But now I am back, ready to take care my blog and everybody that likes to read and comment onto my blog.  So here we go with the instructions for the card I made for the Pink Stamper Blog Hop,  I have to confess this is my first time to a blog hop.
1.  Piece of dark green card stock from Stampin' Up 5 1/2in x 4 1/4 in. Scored in half.

2.  Piece of light green card stock from Stampin' Up 5 1/4in x 4 in, clipped the edges of the top part with  Creative Memories decorative corner punch.

3.  The bird was made out of DCWV as well as the little hat.

4.  The grass was with a really little piece a paper from Fiskars.

5. The stamps used were from Studio G and the ink from Stampin' Up.

6.  The card should not have any problems fitting in an A2 envelope.

So this was the first part of my blog; now to the second part.   Today I received  a box from Joann's on line, so we can say that we had a mini haul of scrapbooking products:


 3.5 round acrylic stamp block, and a 1/2 in thick acrylic block set.

Embossing folder from Cuttlebug Seeing Dots.

Martha Stewart punch (pine branch) and a little container of .5 oz of glossy accents and .5 oz crackle accents.

All these products I've been waiting for the longest time for our local scrapbook stores to bring them but they never did, so I dedided to order them on line and now they are finally here!  I will be posting pics of my new projects. 
Well, I will have to leave for now and be back in a couple of hours after I get some of the projectos from St. Patrick day finished. 

Stay tune to what is coming!

Hi everyone! Today is an amazing day.  Sometimes we forget all the blessing we have.  Let's thank the Lord for it. 

Did you know you can learn so much from our young friends?  Today I had a conversation with a teenager who explained so many things to me that made me think, Is this teenager so mature or have I not grown up yet???

BTW, I would try to get the instructions on how I made the card tomorrow.

10 March 12-- 01

Hi, I know that you are probably thinking, what is this about.  Nothing, just another person trying to survive in this economy like so many others.  So, instead of sitting and crying about it, I decided I needed a new life, not that the one I have right now is bad, just a little motivating that will help me to help others. So let's star with a new beginning. 
This is my first experience with a blog, so I apologized in advance for all the mistakes I might do, but my plan is to learn as I go into this journey with all of you.
A little bit about me, hmmmmmm, I am a mother, a wife, a nurse, a personal assistant, a cook, a maid, a chauffeur, etc, etc, etc(if you are a housewife you know what I am talking about). Love being a housewife, while other women complaint about their job in their houses, I take the best of if.  I never get bored in my house, always find something to do (although, I don't like to iron, but I'll do it if I have to).  I love to read and craft, and I mean all types of crafting, scrapbooking, cardmaking, quilting, knitting, sewing, beading, etc, etc.  So basically I deal with a pretty normal day to day life. 
My plan is to blog at least twice a week about different topics and would love to have feedback (positive and negative).
