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 :)

And 3 months later -- Y a los 3 meses.....

I am here. My last post was about my oldest son heading to boot camp and now, in two week's time, we go down to watch his Graduation at Parris Island SC. Will be a long drive, 1100+ miles one way, but gotta do it :) -- Have gotten a lot done as far as outside updates, some landscaping, new outdoor lighting, a shed torn down....just a couple more things and then as weather gets cooler will head indoors for updates.
The Scrap Table has seen a bit of organizing but not much else yet although am going to a Fall Fest Crop in Sept. I should be ready by then LOL -- I am also due for a blog overhaul soon..but that's it in a nutshell for now -- I did add a cool video at the bottom of my blog page, if you like music, check it out. Back soon
*********************************
Pues estoy aqui. Mi ultimo mensaje hablaba de mi hijo mayor y como se iba al los Marines. Ahora dentro de 2 semanas nos vamos a Parris Island en Carolina de Sur para verle jurar a la bandera y graduarse. SEra un viaje largo en coche, un poco mas de 1100 milla ida solo, pero hay que hacer lo que sea para estar alli :) -- Por otro lado he cumplido con mi meta de arreglar y limpiar a mi jardin, quitar a una combinacion estructura/garaje viejo, anadir luces externas y mover plantas..solo quedan unos proyectos pequenos y a medida que se refrescan las temperaturas me movere a dentro a comenzar los trabajos pendientes en la casa. Sobre el tema de Scrap, no me he metido en mas que organizacion hasta ahora pero estoy planeando ir a un reunion en Sept. Creo que estare preparada entonces. Ademas estoy pensando acutalizar a mi blog muy pronto pero esto es todo de momento.. Ah si te gusta a la musica, enotnce al pie de mi blog he puesto un video musical guay -- escuchala...volvere pronto.

A New Reveal -- Un Nuevo Comienzo

Well all -- I've been off line here because been playing on Facebook and helping my sister launch her Esty Store -- She doesn't scrap but she does create Art! Please stop by her newly launched storefront and give her feed back In any case I've put a link to her store in this post be sure to go there -- UGetDidea by carollawrence on Etsy-- As for me, have been itching to scrap/create but too many things on my plate right now although have been scanning old snaps. And as oldest son leaves for Marine bootcamp in 8 days have not been focused on paper creating but I hope to soon.
Hope your day has been great --hope that next post will have a goodie to enjoy.
***********************************************************************
Que Hay! No he escrito estos ultimos dias porque he estado ocupado en Facebook y ayudando a mi hermana abrir su tienda en ETSY. Ella no hace scrapbooking pero si crea Arte! Toma un momento y visitar a su tiendacita y dejarla un comentario de sus cuadros. Vea a este link para ver su tienda - UGetDidea by carollawrence on Etsy Por mi parte tambien he estado ocupado escaneando a fotos viajas para guardarlas y aunque tengo ganas de scrap no estoy muy enfocada ya que debido a que mi hijo mayor se va a la mili en una semana, sera Marine y estoy SUPER orgullosa del el. Espero que vuestro dia haya sido esplendido y con suerte mi siguiente comentario contendra una tapita a desgustar...

Mother's Day -- El Dia de la Madre



Soooo was sort of in the Mother's Day mood when did these two tapitas. It is fitting that this weekend is my recently passed Grandmother's memorial and then Sunday it's Mother's Day. I created and ATC and a Card using the same papers, with a similar look and feel. And last night we we sorting through old family snaps, what a trip down memory lane :). In an case here are my creations as well as a couple of snaps of my grandmother: one as a vibrant 40+ yr old and one of her last pictures before the real decline. Happy Mom's Day All!
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Debia habere estado sintiendome algo nostalgico cuando me puse a crear mis ultimas tapitas. Y como este fin de semana se celebra el Dia de la Madre mas nos juntaremos para el funeral de mi abuela, pienso que era apropriado mi estado. El resultado de mi momento creativo es un ATC y una tarjeta que comparten las mismas materias y sentido. Ademas anoche revisamos a la fotos viejas de familia -- que de recuerdos buenos estaban escondidos alli :). De todas formas disfrutan de mis creaciones mas unas fotos de mi abuela cuando tenia 40 y pico anos y una de las ultimas antes de su fallecimiento. Feliz Dia de la Madre a todos!

Finally -- Por fin

As usual my life has been full of interruption etc but here are my latest tapitas -- a long over due puzzle swap piece and a few ATC's--- my mojo is not at the boiling point yet, more like something kept on the warming tray, but I do think my Daydream ATC with it's see-through base is pretty cool.
I have to hunt up snaps of my grandmother for her upcoming memorial so thinking might have a LO or two out of that.
Well off to work for me but hope you enjoy them -- leave me a comment :)
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Como siempre mi vida esta ultimament lleno de interrupciones pero por fin aqui van mis ultimas tapitas para vuestra desgustacion -- una pieza de puzzle de un intercambio casi olvidado y unos ATC's -- mi creatividad no esta al rojo vivo todavia, mas bien como algo mantendido a una temperatura templada, pero creo que mi ATC de "Daydream" con su base transparente es super guay. Tengo que buscar a las fotos de mi abuela por su servicio memorial asi que creo que caera una pagina o dos. Pues ahora a trabajar pero espero que os guste -- dejame un comentario :)

Everything is Rusty :( -- Todo esta sin usar :(

Ok so need to post snaps of my fresh from the burner tapas but have been fussing with the software and camera both of which have more dust than function right now LOL -- I *do* have some stuff to post and hope to have up by end of day...hang in there
I am working on altering an ice cream container to be a Prayer Box -- we'll see how turns out as this kitchen's creative burners are firing but not very consistently. So now the question is --- How far out of touch am I with the scrap trends? Help me out by posting links to cool stuff, I will be lurking on my old scrap forums so watch for me :) -- ok gotta run work calls but will be back soon.
Pues tengo que publicar fotos de mis nuevas tapitas pero como mi camera y el software tienen mas polvo que funcionalidad, debido a la larga ausencia que han pasado, no avanzo con rapidez JEJE -- pero *si* tengo cosas por mostrar y espero tener fotos antes de finalizar el dia -- deseame suerte
En estto momento estoy trabajando en alterar una cajita que contenia en su dia helado. Queiro convertirla en una caja para recoger a Pliegos -- una Caja de Rezar --ya veremos como acabara ya que mi cocina de creatividad esta encendida pero un poco a lo loco ... Y la pregunta real es Como esta la moda de Scrap ahora? Me imagino que mi estilo estar bien fuera de moda ahora asi que me tendrais que ayudar! Poner link interesantes aca y estare pasando de nuevo por mis foros favoritos -- bien tengo que volver al trabajo pero regresare pronto!

Happy 2K10

Yup still kicking, we made it through the holidays in quiet calm mode. Nothing overwhelming thank you very much.
Drove oldest back to college in a one day 17hour car trip -- not recommended for sore knees.
Grandmother still with us physically but mentally is more like out past Uranus somewhere. Mother doing ok and youngest son and nephew doing well.Made head way in the scrap organizing dept but got put on hold over holidays, hopefully will finally get that back on track here shortly have missed in lately ALOT.-- Am getting new windows tomorrow so can finally remove the plastic covering them that made little headway in stoping the gale force winds that habitually attempted to freeze us out on the second floor.
I am on Facebook now and have seen some of you -- we friended each other --- please look me us as seem to be able to keep that straight lately.
I need to revamp this blog soon and get this back up and running as well, am thinking 2010 is raising my energy :)
thanks to those of you who still pop in here now and then... I appreciate it very much
