Happy New Year! 2014

December was quite eventful for me.

On my birthday, December 5th, during dinner, I started feeling weird...long story short, went to the emergency room, nine hours later admitted and spent the next 12 days there. I had the surgery I needed for the parathyroid growth (a nickle size tumor on the gland) removed. 

I'm home now, recovering and waiting to feel good again now that the problem has been removed from my body!

Hoping to have my creative side return and get back to living!

More to come :)

November 2013

Welcome back to me!
It's been way to long since I wrote anything and would like to start posting again as soon as I have some new and interesting things to write about.
I have to go through some medical things and then "I'll be back!"
So for now...if you are reading this...please keep me in your prayers :) Thanks!

November 2011

As of today, I am totally freelance...I am not connected to any stores, groups, organizations or people (except my family). It's OK for now, but I just don't know what direction God wants me to go, so I am staying put...that's it!

back to blogging...and what I've been up to

pyramid boxes...I've been making them for at least 12 years and they come in every size (these are extra large) and so many colors.
more info below :)

OK... we have a new addition to our family:

My daughter, Maria and her husband, Robert had their first children on November 17, 2010. This is our #11 grandbaby and we are totally in love with him! See pic below:




I've been beading again, big time! Teaching classes at Michaels in Ft. Lauderdale, getting ready for a craft show in December and just daily life has kept me quite focused.

These dragonflies below were a special order...



paper flowers everywhere!!!




beaded spider! this one is hanging in Maria's car





my sample board at Michaels

facebook & other things

I never thought I would enjoy being on facebook and now I can't stay off of it!
Reconnecting with my old high school friends, seeing pictures of them now, with their families and sharing memories has been great.
***************************************************************************************
Also, preparing for surgery, which may take a couple of months.
Swimming everyday and eating healthy foods. I feel pretty good and want to get even better.
Made some beaded earrings, a necklace and cell phone charms.

That's it...

major decision...

Eleven months ago I had knee replacement surgery on my right knee and now, for the first time, I uttered the words to my doc...let's do the other! wow...I shocked myself & Rico.
The pain has been unbearable in the left and with the right feeling pretty good, and since arthritis never gets better on its own...what else can I do?
Not sure of the date yet, but hopefully in a month or so.
More news to follow!

party on paper niche...

The Paper Niche (Tammy & Rhonda) really know how to throw a party!
This was a "surprise" brunch for Barbie (going to school full time) and Kelley (having a baby & leaving the Niche) at Charley's Crab in Ft. Lauderdale on the Intracoastal waterway.
Check the background in the pictures.
They came out a little dark because of the glare from the water, but believe me, everyone
was smiling and laughing the entire time. We had lobster & crab omelets, fruit & potatoes, and let's not forget the Bloody Mary's & Mimosa's.
Thanks girls (T & R) and good luck to K & B in their adventures.

my birdies had a FIESTA NIGHT!!!

The Paper Niche has a Saturday night crop night,
with a different theme each week. This week was
"MEXICAN FIESTA".
Below is the project of the night, put together
by Beatriz. She did a great job!





this is from Beatriz' blog: so nice of her!
"What a night! We had another unforgettable crop night @ Paper Niche. This week the theme was "Mexican Fiesta". We had a real pinata filled with scrapbook goodies and Tammy's husband was sooo nice in holding it so we can hit it and break it!The food was delicious! We had Bean dip, chicken tacos, corn & bean salad, chips and candy. Camille's birds were the hit of the night when they became "Mexican boys" for the night's layout. Tammy, you are amazing! Thank you for making our crops something we look forward to week after week. We love you!"
Thanks Bea and Tammy and all the girls at the Niche!
I love the way she put the sombrero on their little heads! OLE'
I am so happy that these little guys and gals are being used in so many different ways.
Please send pictures if have them and show me what you've done. Thanks!

Michael's arts & crafts and JoAnn's...big sale!

Dropped in to the local Michael's for ONE thing and found a few sale items...even their $1 section was 30% off...what would you do??? They had the cutest little note cards, journals, paper, etc, for .70 cents! Great little gift items to tuck in to a basket. I also picked up a few chipboard albums in the shape of a house, cloud and sun...they had more shapes, but I had to stop myself. Made by crayola, with the key ring and all! What a deal...check it out if you get a chance.
Then I ran over to Jo Ann's and they are having a summer sale...50%-70% of just about everything. Too much fun!

toga party!







Each month we gather at Jane's house to make things...cards and other projects. At the end of the season we have a little party, complete with food, costumes and crafting. It's a great event! Jane is a rep for Stampin' Up and is very creative. She puts so much effort in coming up with new ideas for us to make and always provides a pleasant atmosphere for us to enjoy. Here are a few pics from today...the theme was toga party, some of us dressed up and Rebeca won for best (sheet)...I mean costume! Fun for all and we made three very cute cards & tags (photo later) oh, and we also had a card swap.
