Baaad blogger....

At least I know it's because I have been scrapping :)

I have finally dug into all those great kits I have been hoarding. I'd have proof, except I gave Nati my last set of batteries for her Barbie computer, so I have no camera until I run to CVS. Soon. Really...

I have also been devouring The Wire with the hubs every night. Such a great series. He had been begging me to watch it and, boy am I glad I did.
Very highly recommended.

Onto cutesy stuff, I found this on Laura Kurz's blog and lookie here...

Who knew??? All those countless hours of reading and studying paid off. LOL!!!

Still here...

I know I have seriously neglected the blog lately. Having Nati home all day, leaves time for little else.
I don't mind, though. She starts kindergarten in August and I am gonna miss her so much...

I have started working on new pieces for Handmade by ANILU. I am really liking what I have made so far, and I really hope you do too ;)

Don't forget, I do custom work, so if you have a necklace in mind, just let me know and we'll make it happen together (

This is my fave so far. I wish you could see the wood in person. It has beautiful grain. The pics don't do it justice.
This one is loooong. More than 36". Love it!

This is one of my most popular pieces. The silk, ebony and Swarovski crystal necklace.
Here the wood looks very dark too, but you can see the grain in real life. Just beautiful.

These stones are just begging to be put together in something. I am still working on that one...

These are the new ebony pendant shapes I have. The color is deep and rich, but the grain still shows throughout.

Before I leave you I want to send a big shout out to my Daddy. He had his 66th birthday last week. Can you believe this handsome boy is 66???

Love you!!

The last of it.

This is it. The last of the LOs I have to share. I hope you're not fed up with my posts full of pages :)

This is my sweet girl all dolled up as a Mexican señorita for Columbus day. She looked adorable!!

This are just some random shots of her sweet face. She loved the camera and always gives me her best poses.

This is one of my fave pages and pics. My niece Paulina and Natush, being silly together.

A tribute page to my beloved scrap space. I kept it sper simple but I really like the result.

And, finally, my girlie girl with her peeps at Disney back in January.

Thank you all so much for the kind comments about the book. I am just so happy and excited about it. I loved being able to finally share it with you.

I have really been neglecting my Etsy shop, but no more!!! I am gonna spend the whole afternoon working on new stuff, so be on the lookout.

I'm off to stalk the UPS man... :)

It's in my hands!

I was watching a little TV, when my UPS guy knocked. I wasn't expecting anything...

The box was from Amazon. I didn't order anything... Let's see...

My gorgeous sister had pre ordered Cut Loose and had it sent to me!!!!!!!!!!!!

I couldn't believe it! It's such a cool feeling to see your pages in print, and as part of such an amazing book. Wow.

I was very teary eyed. Can't stop looking at it.

Crystal Jeffrey Rieger did a killer job on his idea book.

I still can't believe that I got to have my pages published alongside such amazingly talented scrappers.

Here's a peek at some of it. You HAVE to get this one. It's all about breaking the rules and freeing your creativity.

Click on the link to the right to order through Amazon.

I'm off to finish my page for Aleida's journal. So exciting!!

Enjoy your Tuesday :)

Mo' mojo.

Yes, I still have more LOs to share. You have no idea how much I love having those super creative/productive periods.

It's so cool to actually use all those supplies I love, instead of hoarding them.

All of the pics are from our Disney trip back in January.

I really like this style of LO cause it lets me use lots of patterned paper without having to use it as a background.

Same here...

I had been dying to use those Hambly rub ons. So delish!

This one still needs a bit of journaling, but you know it always takes me forever to do... :)

This one will have some writing on that tag too... Soon.

I got an unexpected package last week. I am dying to share it's contents with you.
I have to take some pics...

I have never been more excited. I even got teary eyed...

Stay tuned.

Have a super week!!!

I told you I was on fire.

Firs, I have to tell you that Wall-E kicks butt!!!! What a great movie, such a great message.
Both Nati and I loved it and even if you don't have kids, you have, HAVE to watch it.

I guarantee you'll love it.

Can you believe I still have many more LOs to share?? Well, I do.

This one is Nati on the ride back from Disney in January. Just a few days before the whole drama that landed us in the Peds ICU.

Just us girls with Mrs. Mouse, having breakfast. Her excitement during that meal, made the whole trip worth it. I'll never forget it!

Her first meeting with Aurora. They were tight after that.

This is one my all time fave pages ever. It came together so fast and easy and I love it. How cool are those little plastic charms??

My girlie outside our hotel room. She really loved all those huge things around.

I have some shopping to do, so I better get goin'. I need some delish stuff for a BBQ. I really like all the Independence Day activities.
I am so looking forward to the fireworks. Natush loves them!

Have a great long 4th of July weekend!!

I have the most talented pals.

Take a look at the gorgeous LO my pal Mia made for me. We did a photo swap and I was lucky to get her.
Mia, I absolutely love it. Thank you so, so much!!

On to "fashiony" stuff... I go a new wallet. I discovered Hayden Harnett through The Purse Blog and I love their stuff.
How cool is this color???

If you're hard core into fashion, like I am, you have to check out Jessica McDougall's blog. She is Ali E's little sister and I found her blog through Ali's.
She is a fashion savant and she will help you with your fashion woes.
Great blog.

Off to the movies with Nati!!

Too early for a cute title.

So, I have been on fire lately. Finally, I got some inspiration and I was a scrappin' fool.

Now, I need more pics to keep going...

This one is my Natush, on her graduation day, dancing like there was no tomorrow.

Some random shots of the girl and her 'rents. You know I had to use that title...

She was so little... I love how serious she looks on these photos, while listening to some tunes...

First and last days wearing her uniform. I can't believe how much she's grown...

I'm off to put the finishing touches on my first circle journal. I need to get that baby postal pronto!!
