New Year's Eve...

Just a quick post. =] Resolution for this year?
Mine is to eat more veggies and drink tons more water!
Heheheh... Geez, boring I know BUT important none the less...
and I know for a fact I will keep that one!

Today I put my first item up for sale on Etsy. Yay me.
I hope it sells... <3 Just the thought of someone liking something
I made enough to buy it is awesome! Even better though is the
joy it might bring for them to own it.

I also finished my altered-canvas today! Here are a few pics!
The colors are much more muted in person.

Wishing you all a happy new year and God's blessings.

Pix of the flowers I'm gunna swap!

Well here is what they look like! =] I only have 3 more to make and ALL done! <3
These use to take me SO much longer to make. They are much like the Tim Holtz distressed roses...
BUT they are not nearly as bulky in height.
I keep trying to make them smaller in height... I think this is about as small in height as I'm ever
gunna get 'em. Around 1/2 and inch. They are sturdy enough to handle put in a scrapbook too!
=] Please leave me some comments let me know what you think! *crafty love*

My very first swap!

Okay, so over @ scrapbook.com I was looking around in the forum and came across challenges and swaps!
Awesome! I've been wanting to do a swap for a while now BUT am shy, even on the internet! LOL
SOMETIMES! =] Anyways... I noticed that there was a handmade flower swap, and I've been doing roses
for a while now... love 'em. Well there was only one spot left and I got it! YAY!
There are 11 people participating in this swap, each will make 11 roses... keeping one for themselves and  then send the others to the hostess of the swap!
I am ALMOST done with mine, I'll be posting a pic or two as soon as they are finished. =]
Hope this goes well, I'm kind of nervous. I think though for a first swap it should be easy-peasy! <3
Guess that's it for now... back to my flower making!
God bless ur lil' crafty hearts my followers... <3 I think you both rock! <3

I've been super busy making things lately... some are up-cycled and some are not.
Me and the hubby decided to give selling things a shot... for now we're at a local
*flea market* type place... hoping people will love my things and scoop 'em up.
I'm such a noob to this. =] Sort of excited too tho. This weekend will be the first weekend of
selling... So please say a prayer or send positive thoughts our way! Thanx in advance. heheh
I know I have been M.I.A. HOPEFULLY tho I will have something to post this weekend.
Take care and God bless.

Pink Tribute for Jess.

Our family lost a precious and very beautiful member this year, her name is Jessica, I really wish I had known her better, and she had gotten to know me better too.
It's been a few months since she went to heaven and I still do not *get it*, it still does not seem real. Though I know to the people closest to her, it is all too real, and must be like waking up to a nightmare daily.
My heart goes out to each of them, specially her mommy, Tina.
She has an amazing soul and heart to match.
SO blest to not only have her in my family but even more so to have her as my friend! She is PRECIOUS!
I have a love for all things pink, SPECIALLY, *baby pink*!
Having all boiz makes doing pink in layouts a REAL challenge!
I had always wanted to do a layout in kind of a monochromatic-pink. Different shades of my fave color.
Originally, I thought that I would be the star of such a layout, until I saw this BEAUTIFUL picture of Jessica!
You see, Tina, Jessica, and I ALL love pink! <3
My heart told me *this is THE pic*, for the pink layout.I love the way it turned out.
I placed it in a 8x10 shadow box frame and gave it to my precious cousin!
SHE LOVED IT! Then one day... she called me upset, it had gotten knocked of the wall.
Bless her heart... she was crying. =[ A few days ago my hubby stopped by to see her and she gave him the frame and layout... Damage was not so bad... a few blings had fallen off.
I had planned on using these lil pink roses I had made on the layout originally, and forgot to add 'em.
SO I went ahead and used them this time around! I hope she loves this, coz I love her! <3

Today.

Today marks TEN whole years since I met my hubby in person. =]
We met on the net. in May of 2000, a few days later spoke on phone.
A few months after that we finally met in-person!
It has been a hella rocky road, in some ways I'm better... and still,
along the way awesome parts of me I feel like were lost.
Inspite of that I'm thankful to God and feel pritty blest!
I guess I just felt like ranting a bit... one of these days I shall post a
project or two. =]

SO I'm a N00B! =]

Yes... a noob to blogging! I have been scrapbooking since 2006 and I'm in-love with creating things out of paper.
Mostly scrapbooking BUT geez, the more I learn, the more I want to do!
I LOVE paper! My hubby says I'm a paper hoarder... lol! Silly boi!
I use to spend any extra money I had on make-up and OBSESS over M.A.C.
[makers of the best make-up EVER]!
I now I find myself spending all my mad money on crafting tools and such, and obsessing over what D.C.W.V. paper pack I'm going to get next [best paper packs EVER]! <3
This is my first attempt at blogging, and this is my first post... it is a work in progress and hopefully, it will turn out to be something beautiful. <3
