About Me

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 :)

Monday is Newday & a Snowday (again), Lunes - Nuevo Comienzo y Nieve (otra vez)

We here in the North East are destined to have one of the whitest winters on record. Yes once again it is snowing and at rate of approx 2 inches per hour. I can hardly wait to dig my shovel into it come my lunch hour. The plows have been by and I have the requisite 2.5 foot bank in my driveway.....Not to mention that will have to get on my roof because thanks to the previous snow fall I sprang a leak due to ice dam buildup which I will need to avoid this go round at all costs. Ah yes the wonders of winter. En el Noreste parece que stamos destinados a tener uno de los inviernos mas blancos desde hace mucho tiempo. Esto si, un avez mas esta nevando al paso de 2 pulgadas por hora ( 4 cm/hora) Las idea de moverla una vez mas con la pala me mata. Los equipos quitanieves ya han pasado llenando mi entrada con casi 2.5 pies de nieve...sin duda esto implica una subida a mi tejado dado que entro agua por culpa de las otras caida causando una accumlation de hielo. Ah si las glorias de invierno.

What I DO like about snow is the silent way it falls and how beautiful and pristine everything looks under it's white mantel. It almost makes you forget the hassle of it when watch it fall ...almost but not quite LOL Cabe decir que si hay unas cosillas que me gustan de la nieve, como la manera tan silenciosa que caye y como presnta un mundo totalmente virginal y limpia. Casi te hace olvidar todo el trabajo que trae consigo mientras miras su caida al suelo .... bien recordais que he dicho 'casi' JE JE


Today's tapita actually has some meat on it I hope you enjoy it. Last night I worked on an ATC for a the 2008 Scripture Challenge and am pleased with it all things considered. I dont usually extend off my ATC's but I do like how it looks. Faith is so important in everything we do and are, be it directed inward toward our self abilities, outwards as we support family and friends, or more importantly as the guiding compass of our outlook on life as we move forward spiritually. In the verse from Hebrews 11.1 the words "substance","evidence", "hoped" and "not seen" are so powerful. It's like walking in a complete white out snow storm, not only believing but also KNOWING that when come out of it, you'll find that warm cozy home fire burning just for you. It's comfort, happiness, satisfaction, knowledge and conviction all wrapped up in one. Like I said pretty happy with the results and how it jogged the memory banks as well. I think I need to tap into it a bit more. Happy Monday. La tapita de hoy actualmente contiene algo de carne, espero que os gusta. Anoche acabe un ATC para el reto de utilizar un pasaje de la bibilia para crear un ATC. La Fe era el tema. Es tan importante en nuestras vidas; dirigido internamente para animarnos, hacia afuera cuanod apoyamos a nuestros seres queridos y amistades, y porsupuesto como nuestro compas con respecto a nuestros convicciones espirituales. En el verson de Hebreos 11.1, las palabras "sustancia", "demostracion", "se esperan" y "no se ven" son poderosas; para me evocan un mezcla compleja de emociones y sensaciones tal como, felicidad, socorro, acojamiento, sabiduria y satisfaccion. Todos revueltos juntos. Es como andar atravez de una tormenta de nieve, todo blanco sin poder ver claro tus pasos pero sabiendo con total certeza que al salir de ello no solo encontraras un lugar calentito sino que estar alli especialmente creado por ti. Algo fuerte ya se peor como dije antes tenia carne y me hizo pensar. Creo que tengo que arroparme un poco mas en mi fe. Feliz lunes a todos.

Liz, this is beautiful. I love the connection of the total white-out. Never thought about it that way but that is so true. Thanks for sharing this. Might have to try the scripture cards myself. Could prove to be very englightening of oneself!
