Not Crafting Related Today...Whaaaat?!

Just felt like writing and writing from my heart.

I'm climbing up a mountain and I can see my goal at the very top. I might not reach the top quickly but I know with time I will achieve my goal. As I slowly climb up this mountain I make some milestones that might not be obvious to others but to me they are dreams that become a reality. Anything I do in my life is important to me and it doesn't matter how small or how big they may appear to anyone else. With God's grace, my dreams will become a reality.

Tend to me, water me, prune me, and take care of me and I will fill your senses with a beautiful fragrance and a wonderful sight. I will bring you joy and satisfaction when you put your hard work into my roots and I will give you my all in return. But if you neglect me, I will prick your finger with my thorns and make you feel the pain that I felt. You can gain my trust back but you will never see the purity of my petals if you would have taken care of me from the beginning.

Oye! What a day!

My day didn't start so happy. DRAMA! Ughhhh! But it ended up being an amazing night. After the day I had I was glad that my friend and I went to the Crystal Palace. We danced the night away and laughed so hard. So hard that I got cramps and it felt like my head was going to explode! Just what I needed. We were walking out of the palace looking like a bunch of drunk women and we didn't even drink...well, unless you consider water with lemon drinking. =D Aye, but I sure needed this. I'm ready to go to bed and I'm so glad to forget, even for a little while, my not so great day.

k, so what did I do crafting wise? I'm working on a tag swap I'm involved in. Theme: Lucky (St. Patrick's day) I decided to do a cute theme and my wonderful bright colors! Ahh...back in my comfort zone! Hahaha! So these pics are a glimpse of what I'm working on. I got the idea of the leprechauns and pot of gold from stamperdog from you-tube. she used ALL stampn' up punches...I didn't have the punches except for one. I improvised and did a lot of it by hand/ paper piecing. I'm loving how it is coming out. Did enough for today and now I'm going mimis! My bed and pillow are calling my name! Hahaha!

The pot of gold and coins...if they were only real!

My little leprechaun and my 3 leaf clover.

It's sho purdy! Hahaha!

This is the #8 tag I cut out of chipboard and glue regular green card stock; I used the stamps that Vero gave me for my b-day and just stamped it all over the paper...loving the look of it! And the pic below shows how I'm thinking of setting it up. I'm also going to add a tag with room for a picture. Hope it comes out right and I hope everyone likes it!

It's been 4 days since my last blog entry. I have been busy doing housewife, daughter, mother and friend things...don't judge people! Don't judge! Hahaha! So what did I accomplish during this wonderful week? ...2 things! Yeah babbbby yeah!

Check! Finally done with the Lace and pearls page for Karla's swap! Woohoo! I didn't add anymore to it because I was scared that it would be overdone. I just finished the tag that has room for a pic and a journaling spot to journal.

Check! Got the rest of my blog give-away for Scrapchicky's Valentine blog hop done! So here is a peek of what I'm going to give away for February 12th...well some of it...don't forget "owls" is the other part of it. And member, you have to be subscribed to my youtube channel and be a follower of my blog.

I'm in a blog hop which is just around the corner. Some of my project will be part of the give-away and I also gave a hint. You may be asking yourself, "What was the hint?" Well, I will tell you. =) OWLS!!!! So what am I so indecisive about? Well, I'm adding to the blog candy but I don't know or more like I keep going back and forth of what I want to add! Ughh! LMAO! So now I'm thinking of doing a give-away on my you-tube channel as well so then I won't have such a hard time choosing. Hmm...what shall I be doing? Well, it's getting here soon so I better make up my mind FAST! =D

Oooh! Just a thought that popped in my head just now! I'm remembering that tootsie pop commercial I used to watch when I was a kid! I love that commercial! Yeah, I know so random!

What my "Lazy Day" looks like?

Oh, such hard work today! I slept for 1/2 the day to restore my beauty from yesterday. I was forced to get out of bed to feed my amazing mouth...=) Not but really...I did sleep till 11am! I know huh! CRAZY! Today was a lazy day and so much happening! Here are the pictures to show what I did. Enjoy! =]

My m.i.l bought me this vintage style bike and this little owl on books! So freaking cute!

And since I the bike wasn't my size and I couldn't ride it I kindly decided to let on of my little owls ride it...yes, yes, yes I know. I'm so nice to share.

I went to 'General's' where I buy the infamous strawberry Dr. Pepper (Thank you my fav. s.i.l for causing an addiction) and bought me one....oh and in this pic I'm drinking a Vanilla milkshake...this is after I finished my strawberry Dr. Pepper. =)

This is my son watching the Garfield show...And he is still watching it! I told him to take a shower and he said,"Mom, can I take a shower after Garfield?" LOL!

I caught my daughter listening to Taylor Swift and then she got all chy! then she said, "Mom! Take a picture of me with my c.ds!" Hey where did the chyness go? =)

This is my husband "finishing" my newly built computer...umm...why is he watching a movie when he is supposed to be finishing my compoopers! Looks like I will be getting it manana...aww chucks!

This is my newly finished compoopers! It looks all purdy! Now it will match my mouse, keyboard, and screen! NICE! I'm so happy that he can build compoopers! If it wasn't for him I probably would not be able to buy one cause they are super duper expensive!

This is my old compoopers that is giving out. =( I'm so attached to it! I don't want to get rid of it! But the fan is broken and something else is messing up so that's why he is giving me another one that works and he is finishing up. Bye bye my old was an amazing 2 years with each-other. *tear

Shh... here is my page for Karla's "lace and pearls" page swap. I'm having a hard time trying to decide whether or not I'm done. I don't want it to look goddey but it seems like it is and I'm afraid to add anymore! LOL! I like it but I feel like it's not enough! Ughh! =D

The front of my page. Used a lot of RAKs and my mom's lace and pearls.

This is the back of my page...a lace pocket.

As I'm debating whether I'm going to add anything else I decide to watch Pride & Prejudice w/ Keira Knightley and see if I can regain my mojo. Didn't help but I did love watching the movie. I adore this movie and I can watch it over and over! I still cry, even knowing what is next! so I sit back and take sips of my coffee and enjoy the movie. Thinking about my blog giveaway. Hmm...

Shh...K, so do you guys want a sneak peak? you? tick-tock...tick-tock...tick-tock...=)

Watching and chilaxing the movie. I'm even wearing my valentine socks to get me in the spirit of the holiday of love. Oh yeah!!!! You guys wanted a hint! LOL!

Focus on this pic...there is a hint in here somewhere...hmm...=]

...well here is another hint...hahahaha! K, so I'm thinking of adding this paper. What do you peeps think? I love this paper! so bright but vintagy at the same time.

Day 15 & 16 AWESOME Day 17 half and half =]

=( No pics tonight...everyone say aww...I know, I know so very sad!

K, so what have I been doing for the last 2 days? Well, Saturday night I celebrated my early birthday with some friends at the Crystal Palace (country music where Buck Owens son performs). It was so so much fun. I got some amazing gifts and some very naughty gifts form my 70ish old friend! I told her I was going to surprise her as much as she surprised me and she said,"Oh Susi, I think I would get a heart attack at my age!" We were laughing so much! Hopefully I will be able to post some pictures soon.

Yesterday was my friend's baby shower and it was so much fun! Her mom sells so much amazing accessories and I bought some...hmm...perhaps I will include them in a prize...or maybe I'll be selfish and keep it. I'm bad, so bad! =D My friend's aunt made some chocolate lollipops shaped as a baby carriage, bottle, and booties! They were so cute! And then...dun dun duuuuuun! I found out she also can make some pipi lollipops! What a coincidence! I asked her if she would make me some for my friends b-day in June and she said yes!!!! My friend is going to love love them! LOL! Oh and by the way...I didn't win ONE game! I was so sad...well maybe cause I haven't had any babies around. Yes, I blame it on that!

And today! TODAY...Jan 17th (k, it's actually the 18th now) my birthday! Guess what I did?! Just guess!!!!! I cleaned my room and folded laundry. Yes you read right, I did laundry. I shall not go into details but it was kinda sucky BUT my friends made it awesome! Just the fact that my friends told me happy birthday was more than enough. It made my day and that was one of the best gifts I could have ever received. You know who you are. Lets just say I was in tears and overwhelmed by my friends. I don't know how I could ever thank you guys enough. It went from a bad day to a wonderful evening. I crafted ALOT! I actually finished my blog hop project! I just suddenly got my mojo back and worked on it! I made two and I'm going to give one away and add some other stuff. So if you are an owl lover guess what? You might want to participate in this give-away. I will have more details soon.

K, I think that is it! Woohooo!!! I'm looking at my post and I feel like it's missing something. I know it's the pictures so I will add some pics myself! LOL! Linda, you will recognize these.

<| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =) <| =)
This is my pic for the day...this is me with my birthday party hat! LMAO! Thanks again my friends!

"Babe, that's enough!"

My corner is getting bigger and my esposo is worried that I'm going over-board...I just started laughing. He just smiled and walked away to his "small" office...the extra room. Hahaha!
So this is the skirt that I finished last night. WHAT?! It's no purple?! Hey, hey, they didn't have the purple fabric in my price range! Lay off! Sheesh! =D

K, so before my esposo put the shelves up I told him one would be fine...umm...I'm so glad he put the two shelves! It is hard to believe that most of this was on my desk, and small book case! WOW!

My little corner. =)

This is where I put the tags from swaps and gifts. I have some missing and I can't find them!!!! I'm stressing man! STRESSING! I know I have them somewhere! I have decided to title it "Arte" in Spanish. =)

Hooray for Shelves!

OMG! Guess what?! My esposo finally decided to put up my shelves! Saaaaay whaaaat?! Yeah I know! I'm so excited!
Oushhhhhhhhhh! Look at my sesssy esposo drilling the screws in wall. So macho!

Now, now ladies! Stop drooling! =D Aye I crack myself up!

My esposo did not want me to post this pic because he said he wasn't done. Well I couldn't help it! I had to! I was so excited!

Woooohoooo! He is actually putting up my shelves!

Ahh....look at this beauty! Feast your eyes mujeres...feast!

I'm soooo happy! Can't you tell?
Ta-da! k, I know the owls are not 'organized' but I just had to take them out of my basket! They were crying to be let out! Tomorrow I will fix up my shelves. Ahh....and make my skirt for my table! =)

12x12 Page Block! Porque?!!!!

K, so I'm having 12x12 page block (I wonder). I think it may be because I really don't want to mess this up because this is going to be a very special layout!

This is the paper pack that I received from a RAK and I absolutely adore it. When I got this pack I immediately wanted to use it for my mom's and dad's pics!

This is the page that I want to use because of the blue bird and they look so adorable!

When I was getting my parent's wedding pictures ready I started to tear up...I love these pics! They make me happy.

I think these are the pics that I want to use...maybe a journal spot above the birds...some lace or doilies i received from a RAK...ribbon...I don't know! I'm stuck! Any suggestions?

Sick Ass Corner no More!

Yessssssssssss! I'm done with my "sick ass" corner! Well, 98% of it because my drawers are still not completely organized. I now feel I can actually craft! Woot woot!
My lovely desk is done! I love it at this corner so much more. This way when I do craft I will be able to watch vids. from you tube while I craft. AWESOME!!!!
I'm so happy how the table came out! I just need to buy some fabric to make a skirt for the table...hopefully my hubby will let me buy some fabric today! Here is crossing my fingers!!!!!
This didn't change much except for the owl plaque and the purple lamp by my night stand.
So the bulletin board broke because I tried to staple something on it...dang it to heck! So I had to place all my magnets on my filing cabinet. It actually looks cute! Cool beans, cool beans.

After cleaning my filing cabinet look how much room I have now! Now to start filing my templates! I'm so happy!
K, the bottom is not that isn't so organized but it's getting there.

Aww...My walls look so so empty without all my stuff on it! =( My husband is supposed to put up the shelves...well actually yesterday but he had a rough time at work and was too tired. Oh, and today it looks like he won't be doing it either because we are going to Bakers. to pay some bills...=( Maybe tomorrow night if not during the weekend. Man! I am not patient!!!!!!! "I want it now daddy!" =D
