Hey friends!  Is anyone still out there?

Well, I am thankful that I'm still able to work and feed my crafting obsession. Life has gotten the best of me, but I'm still here chugging along.

School began yesterday.  You know that always brings lots of new adventures.  My kids are now in 6th and 5th.  A middle schooler in the house!  Fortunately, God has blessed me with two children who are kind and sweet and I am completely blessed to have them.

I'm committed to upkeeping the blog more frequently. I do craft often, but with technology, my phone is the only source of photos...which makes it tough to post them.  I will come up with a solution soon!

Have a great day!

And they finally wed!

HI everyone.  I know it's been ages since I last posted.  I've been super busy with parties and work and life.  But I have been busy crafting away.

Yesterday my nephew, Joshua, married his sweetheart Cassandra.  They had a beautiful ceremony and party at the Weston Hills Country Club.  I was blessed to help organize this event from start to finish.  Here is a little teaser of some of the things we came up with. I'll gather more photos and post them soon.

Until the next time!

Long lost post

Hi friends.

I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted. Believe me...I've been plenty busy crafting and creating.

Most recently, I've been working on my niece's Quinceanera. For Hispanics, the Quinceanera celebration is a rite of passage from childhood to adulthood. It's a beautiful and meaningful ceremony.

Elizabeth is a sweet young woman and she planned her party around Beauty & the Beast. I'll post pics of the invitation later, but these are the table markers. I used spellbinders to make it look like a mirror. The flowers are stamping up.

I'll post more this week.

More birthday cards

In keeping with the birthday theme, I'd like to share Damaris' s second card. This one also has a little notebook to go with it. I sure hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. Traci Cornelius was my inspiration for this card.  Although I don't own the Elegant Butterfly...I used the mini one.  Please click to view her Video Tutorial

My eldest sister is having a birthday soon. I made her two cards. The first is using stamping up ' Banner Blast stamp set. I used a tutorial from Christina Thomas to create it. 
 The paper is baked brown sugar. The inks are: baked brown sugar, crisp cantaloupe, coastal cabana and pistachio pudding.

Cassie's Frozen party

My daughter turns ten this week. She wanted a Frozen - themed party, so I got to work. I created a few cute things for our guests at the ice arena.
The mood was set by lovely invites created by my friend Zeni.
I created these snowman kits and these cute goody bags for the older kids. Each one has a Hershey bar wrapped in a Frozen themed wrapper, gumballs, and chips ahoy. These are strictly for the teens. I used Lovebug Creations winter grunge on this little bag. Super cute.

Hi friends.
It's been a while since I posted. I will share my journey later. Right now I want to share the favor boxes I made for my son's birthday this weekend. He chose a super heroes theme. The venue does not allow outside decorations, which is a bummer, but I decided to incorporate the theme into our party favors.
I visited Lisa at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon and found these adorable super heroes.  She is amazing.  Please visit her at Pretty Paper Website

Because I am new to silhouette, I was not able to cut them as efficiently as I wanted, so I opted for the digital image instead. I used the curly label from My Creative Time. Inside, each child will find animal crackers.
Hope you enjoy your day.
