Welcome Christmas into your HEART

Hola Amigas! Here is another Dawn Griffith case...I love the simplicity of this one...The difference between both is that I embossed my bashful blue and used chunky glitter on my snowflakes along with using Brilliant Blue for my sentiment. How is your Christmas card making coming along...Mine's is SUPER BUSY! But I just LOVE IT...Today and EVERY Wednesday we spend the day with my Abuela (grandmother)...I get a HOME COOKED meal (not that I don't cook but their are certain Spanish dishes that need those experienced and seasoned hands). And Solimar and Joaquin get to play with Abuela Banana (that's what Solimar calls her because SINCE FOREVER she always gives her a banana when she sees her-NO LIE) and Joaquin calls her Abu...

Fa La La La La

Hola Amigas...I am still making Christmas card samples and sets...I love the Holiday Season. This weekend I will begin decorating my home and ALL my Christmas trees...I have been caseing Holiday cards along with making my own...This is a case along with some of the others I will show you in the next couple of days...I like to case Dawn Griffith's cards...She is truly talented...If you are in need of gift sets please let me know I have received a couple orders and I am working hard to get them all out by next week. Today I had to take Solimar to get her school picture taken even though she is off today...but I totally FORGOT. I even had her hair trimmed on Friday for picture day on Monday...Too many things on my mind...Luckily, the school director allowed me to come today...YEAH!

Scary Pumpkin Patch

Hola! Just a couple REASONS why Joaquin did NOT enjoy the Hay Ride...Solimar on the other hand had a BLAST!

Pumpkin Patch and Halloween

Better Late than NEVER...Here are some pictures of our trip to the Pumpkin Patch...Solimar and Joaquin had a blast. The only part Joaquin didn't like was the Hay Ride because it was a little scary...I will post those pics in a second...They had hanging spiders and scary characters. For Halloween Solimar was a PINK cave girl. She had me spray paint her hair for about 4 days...Joaquin was Frankenstein.

Season's Greetings

Good Morning Amigas...How is everyone? Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving Day. I will be hosting Thanksgiving in my house for my family this year...FIRST TIME EVER! My mom will still be doing the cooking as I can't compete. But I will be baking all the goodies. In the evening we will feast at my In-Laws. And of course I will be putting up 4 Christmas trees starting Thanksgiving Day. I have never had the same tree twice...but this year I will repeat my purple tree for Solimar and now that we have Joaquin I will have to go and buy ornaments to do a either blue or GREEN (my fav color) tree. I love DECORATING! My hubby NOT SO MUCH! So how do you decorate your Christmas tree(s)? I have had a Black and White, Vintage, Gold and Burgandy, White and Purple, Blue and White, Whimsical (hot pink, turquoise, fuscia, orange, etc), Red and Green, All White and MORE!

Good Morning Amigas! Que Frio! Brrr, It's Cold...Over the next few days I will show you what I have been working on and the goodies that Dannie, My Holiday Exchange Partner sent me...I love this color combo. What do you think? Its Handsome Hunter and Rich Razzleberry. My little ones are much better. Thank you Lisa for always leaving me a comment and asking about Solimar and Joaquin. Today I am the Parent Reader guest at Solimar's school..She is very excited. I would love to read Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems. AWESOME BOOK!

Well hasta despues! Until Later!
