About Me

My photo
Rochester, NH, United States
A place where Scrapping is savored as you would a wonderful meal and, while you're here, we enjoy each other's company --I am a working single mom who tries to juggle everything in the air with the hopes that when misses one she's not underneath to get whacked. Oh and I'm binlingual too :) Un lugar donde se desgusta el arte de Scrap como un bueno plato y de camino pasamos un rato entre amigos -- Soy una madre soltera que pretende no ser atropellada y aplastada cuando una de las multiples responsibilidades y tareas que mantego al aire se me escapa y caye a la tierra. Oh y soy binlingue tambien :)

READY TO RAK!!! Listo a Regalar!!!

Yup yesterday I was "supposed" to have gotten this posted but like all things planned they never go off quite as you expect. I think I had a "holiday hangover" LOL couldnt' seem to stay out of my own way so basically called it a dud day. So took some Ibuprofen and did the PJ boogie all day. I was capable of playing on very long game of Super Scrabble but after 2.5 hours of that I had much for brains. Ayer debia haber publicado esto pero como no podia encadenar mis pensamientos de una manera coherente opte por no hacer nada LOL Parecia una resaca sin el alcohol. Tome unas pastillas y descanse. Jugue una partida de Super Scrabble con mis hijos pero despuese de 2.5 horas de juego acabe con mi cerebro definitivamente.

Ok so on to the good stuff -- To get in on this RAK post a comment on THIS post between now and Monday 12/31. In the post link me up to your fav TAPITA! Remember a tapita is a little appetizer meant to be shared in the company of friends so link me up whether it be scrappy related or not it's something you want to share with me. I will leave a message there so you know I saw it-- On NEW YEAR'S DAY January 1st, 2008 the winning name will be drawn. And with any luck I will have actually hit that coveted 1000 visitor mark as am very close. I am very excited for these items to go to a good home so leave me a comment!
Bien al grano aqui -- Para participar solo teneis que poner un comentario en mi nota de hoy desde ahora hasta el lunes 12/31. En su comentario pnerme un link a su TAPITA FAVORITA! Recoradros que una tapita se debe compartir asi que puede ser o no ser relacionado con este hobby de scrap o cualquier otra cosa de interes. Dejare un mensaje alli si puedo para que sabeis que visite. El dia de ANO NUEVO 1/1/2008 sera escogida un/a ganador/a. Quizas por entonces habre superado los mil porque me quedan muy poco. Asi que corre a poner tu comentario tengo ganas de enviar todo a alguien!

And what's up for grabs for all this linking and posting -- Y ahora lo bueno

EVERY Scrapper needs nourishment so it will include this as well -- Porsupuesto cada persona requiere esto mientras hace scrap --

I'm including an altered jar I made with a mini alpha stamp set -- I have one of these sets and LOVE them. The jar is a seaside theme, perfect for setting your sights on summer. Altere un bote de cristal y la llene con un juego de estampillas de alfabetos minis. El bote tiene un tema playera para sonar con el sol

Next two Photo Sharing Cards (one black one neutral) which are mini albums in themselves complete with envelopes ready for altering for Valentine's or Saint Patrick's Day. Unos albumes mini para decorar con fotos -- traen sus proprios sobres y viene uno en negro y otro en natural, listo para el San Valentin o San Patricio.

One set of unmounted rubber stamps by Firecracker. Un juego de estampillas sin montar de Firecracker

One set of basic journaling markers with a fine tip in black, red, green and blue. Un juego de 4 rotuladores en negro, azul, rojo y verde con punto fino.

TWO giftcard/tag folding file folders; both have 4 pockets, extra space so you can add a photo or gift card(s) and two dual sided tags for you to personalize. Dos albumes tipo mini para los tags y tarjetas de regalos: ambos tiene cuatro bosillitos, espacio para poner fotos or otros detalles mas do tags para personalizar.

my favorite Tapa (I even have tapa pans at home) is from a small Spanish place in Royal Oak Mi called Sangria (and OMG the Sangria is to die for too). Its small roasted potatoes with this orangy tomato spice sauce on top.Here is a link #20. http://www.sangriaroyaloak.com/menu/lunch/tapascalientes.htm

Being a vegetarian is pretty hard in Michigan-at least where I live, so I have to drive an hour or more to dine out and get choices besides salad bars. My daughter used to live down the road from here-but she moved. Made me sad.

My favorite appetizer to take is:
Roll Ups
Mix 1/2 cup sour cream and cream cheese. Add chopped ham, green olives, green onions, garlic powder and shredded cheddar cheese.
Spread this mixture on soft tortilla shells. Roll them up and wrap in saran wrap overnight. The next day, slice them in 3/4 inch slices.

Wow, I haven't been on here in a while. I love your page. You are so talented. My favorite appetizer is a shrimp ceviche that a friend of mine makes. She won't tell me what she puts in it. I know it has shrimp, onion, tomato, lime juice and achiote flavored oil that she makes by heating achiote seeds in oil before adding to shrimp. What else goes in it is a mystery to me. It's really spicy and yummy too. Hope you had a wonderful holiday.
