Thanks and a Happy New Year!!!!!

I can't believe that today is the last day of 2008. WOWW, this year is gone!!!
First I want to say Thank you very much for letting me be here, yes because of you my friends I am here. When I started this blog I think I was the only one reading it, now I believe there is more people doing it, LOL. Never in my mind I thought I would be in a Design Team, Thanks so much to Tamara and Susan for inviting me and letting me be part of their companies!!! You are such great people, I am so blessed to design for you ladies.
This year I met a lot more people online (great people) I don't want to mention names because the list is LONG, great people that listen to me when I was sad, feeling under the weather, people who always lifted my spirit, Thanks!!
During this year also I received e-mails from ladies I never heard here or anywhere, saying Thank you for the music or for whatever I wrote on my blog, that was always a surprise for me because I am not the perfect English writer, I have a lot of typos, Thank you again for your wonderful words!!!!

I hope and pray 2009 is a great year for you and for me. Believe in yourself and never say NO, I can not do it, because you CAN DO IT!!

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you are having a great day. I am having a great time with my family and also I managed some time to create a card. As I told you yesterday my mojo is taking a break, I don't think it is back yet, so today I found some inspiration from a Bedroom set I found on Costco Magazine, I believe this one is from October because I was trying to find the same set on their website and it is not there. Anyway, I hope you like my card, it is very simple and if you like quilts probably you will like this one.

For my card I cut 1" x 1" square pieces of CS ( Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue,Tan Parchment [The Paper Company]) I positioned the pieces alternating the colors, then I used my sewing machine (ziz zag stitch). I added some ribbon around, some mini buttons and the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment: Combo Sentiment Set from smARTworks in Chocolate Chip Craft, added some Clear ep, then I sponged the borders with Bashful Blue. Pretty much it. Final card is 4.75" x 4.75" square

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: White, Chocolate chip, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue and Tan Parchment.
Stamps: Combo Sentiments by smARTworks.
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft, Bashful Blue.
Embellishments: MS Ribbon (Yellow Dahlia), Mini buttons.
Accessories: Sewing machine, embossing powder, embossing gun, Mini glue dots, 3D foam by EK Success.

I hope you like it.
Have a great night.

Hello everybody!!!

Hello!! I hope you all had a great Christmas. We did have a great time together. On Christmas Eve we went to church and sang some Christmas Carols, we enjoyed the little kids choir, it was a really fun time looking at them singing, of course some of them they were looking for their parents or just looking around.
On Christmas Day, Rebecca got up at 7:15 as I told her night before, she told me that she wanted to open present after breakfast so that's what we did.
I have been spending time with my family and playing UNO with Becca, I think from all the presents she got the UNO game is her favorite, LOL.
We have played outside too, this was not too much fun for me because here has been REALLY COLD!!! but kids don't care about that, when she was playing in the snow I was shoveling snow, LOL.
Anyway, my MOJO has been taking a break too, I hope is back tomorrow so I can post something here.

Rebecca posing before starting playing in the snow

Me and my good friend Amy !!! Christmas Party, Cle ELum, WA 2008

I am not posting my Christmas pictures because we all were wearing PJ, LOL.

Mothers & Daughters Creations Challenge: Handmade Ornament

Hello everyone, I hope all of you have a great day. Tonight, we will go to our Christmas Service, sing some Christmas Caroles, have fun and celebrate the real reason of Christmas: Our Lord and Saviour Jesus!!!

Today on MDC is a challenge day (actually we do it on Thursday, but we want you to focus on your family!!!) and our challenge was to create a HANDMADE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT.
I created something not new in any way, but a little bit different "A Christmas Tree Ornament"

How to make the tree:
  • With your Circle Coluzzle cut different sizes on to you Patterned paper,
  • Cut a slit to the center of each circle with straight scissors.
  • Cut around each circle with your decorative edges scissor, then sponges each circle.
  • Make little cones, one by one and add graduating sizes. Add the hot glue (please be careful!!!)
  • Add the ribbon in top so can be easy to hang on your tree. Add bows if desire.
  • Add some little dots of gold stickles.

I hope this info can help, I am not good making tutorials, but I thought this can be a project great for your next Christmas.

I hope you like it.
Have a great and Merry Christmas!!

Prayer request

Good night everyone, I was just checking my e-mails and a couple of blogs before to turn off the computer and I found this post on Lauren'blog that makes my heart cry. I was thinking to go to bed early, but instead I will spend some time creating so I can send a couple of cards tomorrow morning. These people really need you, a card will make them bright their days.

Cards for Hannah ("Take it from Lauren's blog")
Many of you may remember my dear friend, Chris Garman, who lost her battle with breast cancer 2 years ago. When she was first diagnosed with breast cancer, she was pregnant with her third child. Her doctors didn’t think Chris would live through her pregnancy without treatment, so they took a chance & gave her chemo while she was pregnant. Chris survived her pregnancy & had a beautiful, healthy little girl named Hannah Faith. Chris died when Hannah was three.

Hannah is now five, and this breaks my heart all over again, but In October, Hannah has been diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a rare and incurable brain tumor. She was given about 12 weeks to live. She was going to be the flower girl in a wedding in May, but was diagnosed A week after she was asked.

Right now she has lost most of her motor skills. She is confined to bed and cannot really do anything or play with the gifts she is getting from people, but she LOVES getting cards - she has gotten so many from people she does not know and just loves to have grandma read about the people who send them and see their pictures and is so proud of all her cards. Her room is just filled with cards.

When asked what she wants for Christmas she said she wants to see how many Christmas cards she can get. Many people have passed this wish along to their churches, prayer groups, friends and family. There are school groups where children are making her cards. People are including pictures so she can see who it is that is sending her the card.

If you would like to help with her wish, please send her a card at:

Hannah Garman
704 Orchard Rd
Lititz, PA 17543

Cards for Baby Francesca:
Baby Francesca was born 2 weeks before her due date and had some complications during her delicery. She is in the NICU and was connected to a ECMO Machine, you can red more about baby Francesca here . Please pray for Francesca and her parents and whole family.

Pray for these families!!
God bless

Some random news

Hello everyone, just in case you are wondering where I have been, well, let me tell you these last days have been crazy and busy and I am still alive. We have been praying for snow and we finally got it, yesterday we had snow for hours, my DD was so excited and happy!!! To be honest I was very happy too, my yard doesn't look too bad when everything is just white, LOL. The temperature dropped so fast that it wasn't funny anymore. This morning when we were ready to go to church it was only 18F, I was horrify. I have learned how to deal with the cold weather (because in Lima, Peru we don't have this temperatures), but today was the worst day I think. In addition of that, the wind was so strong that made it worst. After church we went to Costco and then to Walmart, after that I got a horrible headache, I came home and took a nap, didn't help much. Tonight we expect -2F, so I am not planning to go anywhere, too cold!!!

The last three days I haven't felt very good. I have a horrible pain in my upper tummy. I can hardly eat, and if I eat something I go to the bathroom to throw up. I will go to the doctor tomorrow and I hope this is nothing bad. A lady form church told me maybe is my gall bladder, I hope not. (This sounds funny, but all my sisters and aunts have had theirs removed)

I hope tomorrow I can finish the projects I started few days ago.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

God bless

I am back home!!

Hello everyone, I am back !! We came back home yesterday afternoon, all very tired.
Last week was a very busy week for us, we spent 6 days at my MIL's house. We helped her as much as we could. Rebecca had a lot of fun playing with her cousins (17 and 13, LOL) and also chasing the cat and taking the dog for a walk.
The weather wasn't too bad, but I didn't bring a heavy coat, so I spent most of the time inside than out. Last Sunday was my FIL's Memorial Service, it was a time to remember him, time to cry and time to smile. We were happy to see all his brothers, friends and a lot of people that I didn't know.
Rebecca (who is only 4) woke up last night crying because she couldn't sleep, she told me this morning she was crying because she misses grandpa. Thanks so much for all your prayers and support.

On other news, Susan (owner of smARTworks) asked me few days ago to be part of the DT, I accepted of course. Thanks so much Susan for the opportunity.

I changed my Blog a little bit, colors and picture. I took that picture yesterday on our way back home. This is White Pass (WA), we haven't had snow yet, we hope soon, DD really wants to make a snowman and angel wings. I added some Christmas songs on my playlist.

I will try to come back later to show you some cards I made few days ago.
God bless you
