Valentine Cards Tutorial



Hi all! February is here...and soon Valentines.  I am starting early with my Valentines cards, this is an older video I wanted to share.  (Just in case you missed it :)  

Every Valentines, I get something special for each of my girls.  I was getting them a piece of jewelry until my youngest informed me she does NOT want jewelry! imagine that! lol She says she tries to wear it but just can't do it. It bothers her, so I will have to find something else for her this year. Now, Krystal...she is all about the bling and I have her gift in mind already. So I need to get my cards ready!

What do you usually do to celebrate Valentines?  When I was young girl, my mother never celebrated anything but Christmas, so as an adult and mother, I tend to over do ALL the holidays. It's how I have the most fun. Plus it's my birthday MONTH!!!  sooooo, I hope you all have fun celebrating this holiday of  Love!




Thanks so much for visiting and as always...

Then later on the day, the crafty bug start moving around and I had to make a card and today for the first time in a LONG time I made a card! yay, go me!
I used spellbinders nestabillities. a couple Sizzix dies, some old flowers I had in my stash, a dotted paper dry embossing folder and some Martha Stewart leave paper punches.

Halloween is almost here...

Hello!! How are you all doing? Things here are cooling down, spending a nice and cool evening sipping coffee on my deck.  The stars are out and the moon is so pretty.  Last night, I decorated the mantel in my living room, the first time ever since we first moved in back in 1991.  Yeap we've been in this house for ever now.  I usually decorate the front porch and call it a night, but this year I decided to have some indoor fun...
The first pictures are without spiders or the skeleton couple... I found the glitter spiders and the Muertos at Walmart.

I thought I'd share with you... Have fun and enjoy your Hallows Eve!

The 5 larger pumpkins Brandi bought  from Walmart...
the little ones I got from Lowe's.

I think next year I'll get more of that cloth so it will extend the length of the mantel.

Mesthelioma -- awareness...

Hello all... hope your enjoying your Wednesday! Today is Sept 30th, which means HALLOWEEN is close by! Yay! Maybe I'll get a lil' time to create something scary! 
What are you guys up to?

Before I go on about paper crafts, let me share with you something that is truly scary... Mesothelioma. A sweet lady named Heather Von St. James, contacted me and asked if I would help her raise awareness on this awful disease and being that it’s a lung disorder, I had to say yes. You all know by now, (I think) that my youngest, Brandi suffers from Cystic Fibrosis, also very horrible and deadly.  


There is so much to read on this subject so instead of posting it all here, I am going to link you to some sites you can visit when you have time and wanna learn a lil bit about this disease.


Imagine not being able to breathe! Something we take for granted.  Being informed never hurts who knows it might help you one day. It helped me understand Brandi's diagnosis, as much as I hated finally learning what was wrong, it was the best thing because she could finally get the treatments she needed.

So arm yourself with knowledge.

Thanks so much for stopping by…
Take care and as always…

Visiting California...


Hello, today is Wed half the week is gone.  I hate how fast time is passing me by, but when I'm at work, I tell you, I LIVE for Fridays!!! lol I just love being home.  Two weeks ago I flew, via Southwest airlines to California!! yeap... I made the trip. ALONE, mind you. First time since my girls were born that I travel alone. I always drag one of them with me, I won't even go to the craft stores alone, BUT I got on a plane and flew to California!

I landed in San Diego, and it is BEAUTIFUL there.  The weather, the people are amazingly friendly but the best part is my sissy lives there, well wait...not in San Diego, she lives an hour away in Murieta. Another beautiful place.

What I missed.. and just enjoyed the hell out of...were the Mountains. I miss them so much, being raised in Texas, mountains were a big part of my world. I traded them in for glorious white sandy beaches and warm gulf waters.

So, what I wanted to share with you today were these pictures. 1st, I will start by saying that its a very Dry climate, just lovely...it NEVER rains, at least not in the area my sissy lives in.  A huge change for me since one would think I live in the rain forest,-- it rains a lot in Pensacola.

But back to my pictures, usually..."usually" lol...one expects rainbows to show up AFTER a heavy rain... or at least a few drops of water have fallen from the sky, but nope. Not this pretty, bright rainbow...in the middle of the sunny, dry, desert day... it just popped up, like a daisy!
 How pretty huh?

 Do you see it??  oh it was a beautiful day... 
Claudia and I, had just had a great day of laughing and shopping 
and on our way home when this just started to form...

Look at that beautiful sky... and the rainbow well on it's way...




This is just a picture of an awesome bridge that caught my eye... 
love those mountains though... I have a few more images to show ya'll but 
I'll have to find them! lol

I spent 10 awesome days and it wasn't enough to do everything we 
wanted to do!!!  I had not seen her since 2004, so this trip was very special and
exciting for me.  She has always held a special place and my heart, she is one of my
girls~! But anyways....
Just thought I'd share a lil bit of me with you... 
Thanks for visiting...and for all your love and support!!!

Hugs & kisses from me and my sissy Claudia...

Finally Speaking About Depression~Birds In The Trees

HI all!!!  It's been a while since my last post...and with me its mainly because I have developed a LOVE for television!! lol omg, so many shows to watch so little time, well THAT and the fact that when I get home from work, I do NOT want to concentrate on anything else, I'm so tired. But as tired as I am, I will never be as tired as my kiddo is everyday just dealing with depression.


Up until a few years ago, for me depression had a reason, you know...like...WHY ARE YOU SAD?  could be answered with..."Because.... blah blah blah... I would look for a solution and fix it, or make it better or at least try to.  But then, my first born, my partner in crime, admits to herself and everyone around her that she has been quietly suffering with depression...and it rendered me totally useless up against this monster, that is depression, as Krystal calls it.


The helplessness that I feel, is unreal...I want her back, I want her happy.  But unfortunately this is one trip she has to travel by herself...I'm there to lend a helping hand, supportive advice and unconditional love, but ... at the end of the day, she stands alone fighting this thing!


She must of been of been having a really good day today cause she looks great in this video, usually it takes all she has to even speak...she is always sad, and distant, and I for one hate to see her like that.


I hadn't mentioned it, but since she decided to break her silence and post the following video...I decided to jump in and help her spread the word, raise awareness and maybe let some of you know that you are NOT ALONE. If you share symptoms or just wanna show her your there, that SHE IS NOT alone, drop by her youtube channel and contact her.

Click here to show her sum luv... She would love to hear from you, it might be the path she needs to take to start her recovery.... who knows!


I appreciate everyone of you...all who take the time to comment and follow me through my crafty channels...and now through this bump on the road...you make it worthwhile.!!
