Sooooo, I've been lost in the blogging world. I've just been so busy with life.

First of all, Sophia is walking, running, climbing and just being a crazy, fun, giggly little girl. She's just non-stop from the moment she wakes. She's so much fun and a great "conversationalist". She's into saying Yeah! a lot so most of my questions for her go like this: Sophia do you love mami? Yeah!; Are you mami's cuteness? Yeah!; Do you think mami's cute too? Yeah!; Do you love daddy? Yeah! Now she also says cheese and has the cheesiest, biggest smile in her face. she also sticks out her tongue- Yes, I admit I taught her that. My mom's not too happy about it.

Then in November we moved. Yes, we left the city and moved a short train ride away. I still come into the city for work with Sophia, and the commute is not bad. The apartment is brand new, but needs a whole lot of work. We're dealing with it very calmly (which means I go into screaming fits when the hetaing system doesn't work) Not to worry I scream at the heating system not at poor John.

Then as you know I work in a church and December means LOTS and LOTS of work. But hey, I have a great boss, great coworkers and lots of fun. Yes, I admit it I enjoy my job and the people I work with are just crazy and fun.

In terms of my crafty side. I created a new blog to track that (this one I'll leave for family and crazy random stuff). The new blog is still not running but I'll let you know soon. I am participating in a challenge on that my cute friend Fabiola is hosting. Check out her blog and see if I get to meet my goal of 3 LOs before 1/31/09. Also, you get to see all the great stuff my talented friends are making.

I did make our Christmas cards this year. I must apologize because I didn't send out that many, but the time just ran out on me. but I love the cards and they smell great. Yes, they smell just like a pine tree thanks to this wonderful thing called "cardscents".

will post pics someday. Maybe before 2009 is over. hahahaha

So on that note. To all my friends I wish you a wonderful new year with God's blessings. Enjoy your families and stay safe.

Random Thoughts & Advertisement

So, since I've been making this more of a journal than a scrapbooking blog I just want to share some crazy thoughts and things that are going on right now.
Sophia had her first haircut. (Stay tuned for pics). She was such a good girl, she didn't cry and was more interested in watching the TV attached to her seat than in anything else.
I am currently working on 2 swaps and making thank you cards for my cousin's baby shower. All those pink clothes have been making me itchy for another baby, but not to worry Sophia, there won't be another heir to our fortune for the next couple of years. In the meantime I get to enjoy Sophia being a crazy ONE and in October I get to smell fresh baby breath when Kaylin Marie makes her appearance.

Speaking of babies I laughed so hard when I saw these. They are called "Heelarious" get it?. hehehe. When I first heard the announcement it said high heels for baby and I was distressed by the idea of Sophia wearing high heels, but then realized that they are for babies 0-6 months which means they don't walk yet. They're expensive $35!! but oh so cute and funny!

They have 6 styles and these pink satin ones are called "Sophie". Awww.

In other news, there will be a Scrapbooking store opening up in Manhattan I believe at the end of the month. I'm so excited!!! It'll have a portrait studio also, and a tool cafe- where you get to try out tools before you buy them. They also have a design team with 6 very talented young ladies. Cool!
Gosh, I sound like an advertisement for all of these stores, but hey they make me smile. Another thing that makes me smile is that I'm finally serious about losing weight. I cannot blame it on Sophia, since I was skinnier after giving birth to her than when I first got pregnant, but then the lbs just started piling on BUT now they're coming off. Yay for me!!
Stay healthy,

As I wrote before I took a BPS class called "a Baker's Dozen" and loved it. so much fun.
Here are some of the LOs I got to make. Hope you like....

This is one of my favorites. Is my mom's first picture with Sophia. Did you guys know that Sophia and her Mama (my mom) share a birth day. She always tells me I gave her the best birthday present ever: her princesa Sophia.

In honor of my Latin Scrap Divas. This is a pic we took during our "annual" reunion in Orlando.
I LOVE these ladies. And while we might be busy with work, family and other things I know we'll always be friends.

Sophia on Easter Sunday. Don't you just love those Bunny ears? (I really need to learn to take better pics. LOL)

Last year's Mini-vacation at the Jersey shore. I wanna go back........

I've been working...

Believe it or not. I've been scrapping a lot (for me) lately. I took a Big Picture Scrapbooking class titled A Baker's Dozen. Just as the title suggests I made over 13 LOs. Well actually more than 13 since a couple of them were double. I LOVED this class and I'm so excited because I actually scrapped something. I didn't get to finish the 13 LOs, so I'm still looking forward to completing 2 or 3 left.

I might complete them at a crop on the 19th. Yes, you read that right me, yo, moi will be attending a CROP. My very first and I'm so excited. It appears it'll be just a couple of girls so that'll be even nicer. This is being hosted at one of my Meetup groups. What? you don't know what meetup is and you live in US? Girllllll, get yourself to and look around you might be able to find a group of crazy women just like you. Yeah, I'm speaking for myself. LOL no, seriously I love meetup. I'm a member of 4 scrapbooking or card making groups and 1 soap making group. Since I'm with Sophia by myself on weekends I haven't been able to attend any of the classes but as my DH is in hiatus from nursing school last w/e I attended one soap making class and I LOVE it!!!

Gosh, I'm just going to go crazy, so much fun, crafty stuff to make and so little time and $$.
Speaking of $ I'll be making crafty stuff for a big sale my building complex is having. All 9 buidings will participate. I already reserved my table. Hopefully I'll finish everything I plan to sell.

What?? Ohh were are the LOs? well, I haven't finished my Baker's Dozen yet, so once I'm done you'll be able to look at them. Have some patience as I have a one year old who's ready to walk any minute now so John and I have no peace until she goes to sleep. I love my baby girl.

Come back soon....
