Cool new stuff to share

Look what my dear friend Barb, hooked me up with...

Ali's new book!!! All about mini books, and no one does minis like her. I am dying to devour it already!!

I also got this incredibly cool stamp set, that is one of the add ons on Cocoa Daisy's kit this month. I had been looking for something exactly like this one, for our upcoming trip to Disney.
Can't wait to get it :)

This is a shout out my dear friends at The Scrapbook Shoppe in Tampa, sent me. They got a hold of Crystal Jeffrey Reiger's book, Cut Loose where I have a few pages being published. I am so incredibly excited about this. It's available through

I have a full day, so I better get going.

Have a wonderful week!

Yes, I've got more...

I have even more LOs to share today. I mean it when I tell ya' I'm on fiyah!!!!!

I loved that Sass deer paper and I had been dying to use it on a page. Those Prima flowers are some of my all time fave flowers. I hope they were easier to find...

These are just some random shots of the girlie with the proud parents. I just had to use that phrase for that cute little apple charm.

This is my baby girl on her first, and last day, using her Bufi preschool uniform. I couldn't believe how much she's grown up.
She's just a joy!

OK, enough chit chat. I'm off to take my Nati to the movies. Wall-E awaits us.

Have a great weekend. Smooches.

Gotta love it when your mojo decides to come back...

Mine had been gone for a looong time, and it was driving me crazy. I have all these great things to scrap with, and not being able to produce a thing with them, sucked!

Thankfully, just as it left, it came back and I have been scrapping non stop for 3 days!
I am so happy and having so much fun.

Here are some peeks at what I have been doing. I can't show you the whole thing cause I can't stitch and Juan isn't home yet.

Hope you like them as much as I loved making them.

I am trying to use all my goodies, like the miles of ribbon I have, and all those great things I get in my kits.

I really am loving getting a monthly kit and add ons. I haven't shopped for anything else in months! Yes, months. Nothing. Nada!

I am saving my Juan lots of cash that will be put to better use ;)

I'm off to have lunch with Barb and then to the Dr. with Natush.

Time for eye candy!

Oh, yeah! This gorgeousness is a peek at WIP's August kit. Don't you just love that Trish doesn't keep us waiting for ever to see the goods???

There's some delish Narratives and S.E.I.'s Poppy collection which I loooove!

Onto some sad news, the genius known as George Carlin passed away. I loved his work and I think he was deep and funny and I'm gonna miss his stuff.

If you've never seen his stand up comedy, you have to get some of his DVDs. I know you wil love them.

Lots to do today, so I'm off.

More for Grandma...

Please bear with me... Grandma really needs to see her girl!

More of Nati on her graduation day. I really get a kick every time I write "graduation".

In scrappy news... I am doing my first ever circle journal with some of the coolest chicks I've ever "met" online.
I am so excited to start and see what everyone comes up with.

I finished my album and this is the cover...

I'll show it to you again when it comes back to me, all full of great pages from my friends!

I'm realy gonna miss it...

but like all good things, my DT gigs have come to an end.

is closing :( Colleen has lots of cool things coming in her life and she needs time to make them happen.
I know she, and her incredibly cool kits, will be missed.

These are the LOs I made with June's kit...

Col, thank you so much for the amazing opportunity you gave me, allowing me to be part of your team.
I loved it!!

As for WIP, it was just time... With Nataia out of school all Summer and a trip to Disney (YAAAAAY!!!!) in a few weeks, it's gonna get a little crazy around here and I would not want to let her down.

My sweet Trish... It was a blast to be part of your team, and so cool to play with the beautiful goodies you put together for us to create with.

Now, for some cool news... If you're interested in joining the WIP design team, Trish is having a DT call. See all the details here.

In weather news, is there any chance it could stop raining every day here in Miami????
Natalia and I miss the pool.

My little dancing queen.

This little video of Natalia dancing on her "graduation" day is for my Mom. She is dying to see her girl so here she is :)

It's really shaky and plain bad. She is headless from time to time cause I taped this with my photo camera and I was trying to watch her too, so my arm kept moving all over the place.

Espero que te guste, Mamita!!

These are the last two LOs I made. They are for the Studio Calico photo swap. I got Jen's pic and I loved working with it. Her baby girl is just too cute.

I have to go clean. Yay????

I know I've totally neglected the blog...

but, I've had stuff going on.

She's a graduate!! Yes, I know it's funny that they get them all dressed up, but you should have seen her. She played the part and made me so incredibly proud.
I loved that day.

I can't believe how much she's grown in these past two years.
These are pics of her firs and last days of school. Gulp... I get misty looking at these.

I want my baby baaaack!!!!!!!!

I have also found yet another wonderful "place" on the web, where I spend a lot of time lately.
The Purse Blog and Forum.

If you're a bag lover and collector like me, you have to check this place out.
Everything you always wanted to know about bags, glorious bags!!

I recently started collecting Kooba bags, and this place gave me lots of info and advice on where to shop to get authentic goods and the best prices around.
Retail definitely is for suckers.

This is my latest find. I am absolutely crazy about this bag. I love the shape, the size and the color is just perfect.

This Chloe is next on my list. Oh, the love!!!!

That's all I have for now. I will try to update more often. Promise :)

Have a great week.

Feliz Cumpleaños, Mamita!!!!!

Please join me in wishing my gorgeous Mom a happy birthday.

You know how some people say they do not want to turn into their mothers? Well I can only wish I end up like her.
She is wise and calm. Loving, loyal and the best mother in the universe. Period.

I wish I could be closer to her so I could give her a huge hug today.

Te amo, Mamita!!!

This is something I had to share with all my peeps who have been suffering trying to find the perfect bra.
It can be so frustrating and painful. I know it was for me, until I got an e-mail from Daily Candy, singing the praises of Intimacy.

This wonderful place does nothing but help you find the perfect bra and they deliver.

They have a large knowledgeable staff of bra fit specialists, that will lead you into one of the many fitting rooms and look at you, rather than use a measuring tape, to find your true bra size.

I left wearing my new bra and never looked back!!! They carry the best European labels and believe me when I tell you this place is heaven!

If you have one close by, pay them a visit.

I must sound like a broken record by now, but boy, this cold kicking my derriere. I haven't felt this bad in a while.
I need to go drink something hot.

The birthday loot.

I scored in a BIG way!!!
I got everything I wanted and then some.

Barb and Esther got me Tim Holtz classes (see previous post).

My Mom, Dad, sis and Juan got me shoes and purses!!!!! Glorious purses I had been dying to get my hands on for a long time.

I got the gorgeous white Franceso Biasia. It's soft and big and I love her!!!

I also got not one, but two Kooba bags. I had been lusting after Kooba's bags ever since the Sienna madness. I finally did it and bought my self two of them. To make the deal even sweeter, they were both on sale!!!!!!!!!!

Look at my new babies... Aren't they gorgeous?

Meet Jackie...

And Dylan...

Juan and my Dad got me more shoes!! I got silver and black.

This Cath Kidston stationary set is so pretty!!! I can't stop looking at it.

This one
's gonna keep me entertained for hours on end. I had been dreaming about getting it for ever and Juan delivered. It's all velvety and glam, just like it should be.

I'm still feeling like crap with this cold. Off to rest I go.

Happy day!

Lots to share.

I had a great weekend!!! Lots to do and I got to do it with my fave people.

I got to take two classes with Tim Holtz!!! My BFFs Barb and Esther got them for me as a birthday present and I had so much fun!

He is a very cool teacher and I loved the projects we made. Very out of the box for me and I can't wait to practice what I learned.

I look awful in that pic. Bad light and about 100 extra pounds, do not help...

I got to learn how to bind a book using thread. I loved the whole process and the limitless uses of it.

We also made some very cool charms with domino pieces and I finally learned how to use those very mysterious alcohol inks. So much FUN!!

It was a great experience and now I know lots of techniques I didn't before.

How was yours?? Hope you had a great one too.

I'm off to take a nap. Barb gave me her huge cold and my throat is killin' me.
