Sneaky peeks!!

I have finished my DT work for Cupcake Scrapshop. I was dying to get my hands on those October Afternoon papers.
This kit really is to die for. Do not miss it.
They go on sale October 1st at 12pm (noon) EST.
Be there or be square :)

I don't have peeks for Work In Progress' Nov kit (yes you heard right, November), cause the amazing Trish is still putting the finishing touches on it.
I can tell you that the gals who like eclectic patterned paper mixes are gonna love this kit. I know I did. Very cool stuff indeed...
Be on the lookout for it.
In the mean time, come visit the Work in Progress blog. It's full of tips, techniques and inspiration for you all.

Finally, yesterday was Fall season TV premiere night!!! I missed my shows so much, being a TV addict and all.
I liked Chuck a lot. I kinda have a crush on him.
Weeds was great!!! Nancy is finally free from U Turn and Marvin. Those two were really getting on my nerves. I can't wait to see what she gets into now.
The rest of my shows I tivoed. I was too sleepy.

What can you not wait to watch?

I am off to keep on filling jewelry orders. I hope you guys enjoy your jewelry as much as I enjoy making it for you.

A long overdue update...

I know I have been neglecting this blog, but believe me, I've missed it a lot!
I just have been really busy with jewelry orders and DT work.

I spent last Saturday at Barb's in our annual card workshop, with our wonderful Stampin Up rep, Esther.
She comes up with the most beautiful cards and gives us everything we need to create. She has hundreds, yes hundreds, of beautiful SU sets and all the ink colors you can imagine, for us to play with.

Here are the ones I did this time...

It was a blast. Being able to get together with these girls, is the best ever!

I have been hard at work creating jewelry and I have begun selling it!!! I am soooo happy. This helps me A LOT, thank you so very much to my clients :)

This is the box they come in.

Here are a couple of pieces I did for Noelia and for Greta.
Hope you like 'em girls!!

I have lots more pics but I think I've exceeded my pic limit for today. I'll post them tomorrow. Promise!

This is a page I did a couple of weeks ago and I just now scanned. The pp is a card I got at target. I wish I had bought them all. I am loving the teal/red color combo!

I leave you with a pic of my scrap desk and a page in progress.

My dad gets here tomorrow, so I'm off to get his room ready.
I've missed you all so much!!

Happy Thursday!

Look what's coming...

Before anything, I want to ask you for a prayer for my friend Natasha and her family. She could really use them right about now.
I'd be eternally grateful to you all!
Check out her blog and read about her story, OK??

on Oct 1st at Cupcake Scrapshop!!!

Yes, those are October Afternoon papers and the coolest clear acrylic album from D. Reeves Design House!!!

Don't miss this deliciousness!

I have lots to share, but I am incredibly busy today :)

I will give you a full weekend report tomorrow.

For those interested, the jewelry is for sale. E-mail me at if you want something. I do custom work, so if you have a color preference, or have something specific in mind, I'll do my best to make you happy :)

I'll post pics of the new pieces soon!

Have a great week!

That's how I feel. I have yet another head cold that had me in bed shivering all day yesterday. Complete with a fever and all... :(

I spent the weekend working on my DT stuff, with Work in Progress' October kit.

Here's a little peek.. You do not want to miss out on this one.

I have also been hard at work creating some jewelry pieces. My dining room table has been invaded by all things shiny and gorgeous...

Here are some of them. Please, let me know what you think, OK??
**ETA: they are all for sale! If you want something, let me know :)

Before I leave... Let's never forget them...

May they always be in our hearts and prayers.

I just can't stop!!

I have been scrapping more than ever! It seems as though having a deadline is a huge boost to my creativity.

Here are a couple more pages I did recently.

I also started my "This is Me" journal. Here's the cover, and I will start the inside pages soon.
I kinda lifted Michelle's cover :)

I was checking the Catwalk on SIS for some inspiration and the uber cool Gigi had picked me!! I loved making this page and I hope you like it too :)

Now the really important stuff. THANK YOU ALL! You made me cry lots of happy tears reading all the amazing messages of encouragement you left me. I needed them like you have no idea.
I only hope you all know how much you mean to me.
Aagain, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

It's 3:49 am here in Miami...

and I just can't sleep. I have a whirlwind of stuff in my head and I rather surf the web or watch TV, instead of tossing and turning in a dark bedroom.

When we moved to the US almost 5 years ago, it really was a dream come true for us. My hubs got transfered by the company he was with at the time, and we were over the moon.
I was finally pregnant again, we were so excited to come live here and start a new life and family... Just peachy all over.

A few months ago hubby lost his job, completely out of the blue and under very bad circumstances. It has been really hard for us, but our families have been incredibly supportive, so we've been able to get by all these months.

But, the new job just isn't coming and we very well might have to leave in March, if nothing comes along by then.

I have been living in a silent terror ever since the threat of having to go back to Mexico, became more and more real.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Mexico, but it's just not a good place to live in anymore. The crime rate is insane and my life as I know it here would be over.
You cannot do many of the things you do here in the US freely and without fear, and I just can't think of having to bring Natalia into that, when all she's known is peace and a normal, happy and safe childhood.

We were robbed and held up many times during our years in Mexico and I lived in absolute fear over there most of the time.
After the last time my passenger window got smashed into pieces with me in the car during a red light, I just hadn't been able to function normally anymore, until I came to Miami.

To top it all off, I might have to leave my little apartment that I love so much, to move into another place with a roommate. I am NOT happy. Really, NOT.

I had been praying so hard for a while, asking for this situation to get resolved, but I'm just so tired. I don't have the will or the faith to do it anymore. I feel completely helpless and my hands are tied.

I debated a lot about posting this or not, but I do consider you all my friends and I had to vent.
I love happy posts full of pics and cheery cool stuff, but I just don't have one in me right now.

Thanks for lending and ear (or an eye).

I am sad and tired...
