First Day of School

Myriah is in 10th grade! Can you believe it? I can't. I am so proud of who she is growing up to be. My baby, Emily, is starting her first day of 4th grade. Look how beautiful my little chickie is! ugggh - They are growing up so fast.
I wanted to accomplish a few new routines starting today as well. I tend to wear myself out thinking of all the stuff I want to do and how I want to live. As a matter of fact, I think about it so much that I tend to let myself down but not accomplishing my goals. Though this blog I am sure I have already approached this discussion. So let's try this again.
1. I need to do some sort of exercise everyday. Everyday. I need the energy, the strength and 15 pounds to go away. I have clothes that have been waiting patiently to rejoin my current wardrobe.
2. More art, less internet. Plain and simple. I love looking at everyones blogs, reading their inspirational stories, and enjoying their tutorials. The problem is that there are just so many fabulous blogs that I spend too much time looking and not enough time doing.
3. Yep, I am a terrible housekeeper. Do I want to improve on this? hahaha I guess so!
Enough for now. The first day of the new routine is half a pass and half a fail. I did get on the treadmill, make school lunches, but I have been on the computer too long! (I am making a post - so that should count for something!)

Emily's art box turned out cute. Thank goodness she still lets me make stuff for her. Myriah is even letting me work on some of her folders! Woo!

I love this cupcake! I made it for a friends birthday and I think I will be making many more! What do you think?

Summer Time Pretties

Here are some of the necklaces I have been working on this summer. There are several more to show- and I will. I am re-doing Em's room so pictures will be coming soon for that too! Jewelry, upcycling clothing, paper mache, and lots of rosettes seem to be the lot of what I have been working on.

April 2010 Family photos

I can't believe this is my baby! Isn't she a beauty.
Emily is standing by the lovely flowers my friend Marilyn brought me. They smelled fantastic! (Pedro is making sure he is in the shot! Such a camera hog!)
Myriah was in her first play last month. She really was impressive! She definitely has got the drama bug now!
Easter Pictures

Yep. Myriah in her Easter outfit. AWW- She is wearing my necklace that I wore when I was young. Hmmmm young. I think I can remember that far back.

Aren't these little people cute! I have so much fun painting them. I am working on several projects and will post pictures of them soon. Should have more time for the craft room since I had the Dish Network shut off. The kids aren't happy about it but I am enjoying it. We spend so much more time together and I am getting a lot more done around the house! They still have movies to watch just not access to 24hours of Spongebob and iCarly.

Wow! What's with the orange tinted pics? Emily wanted her nails and toe nails painted last night. She says it's time to bring on the flip flops! Not that you can tell from this picture but they are neon orange with turquoise swirls. Except for her big toes that have a flower on each one. She's so cute! She is growing up so fast and
I wish she would slow down. I will get an updated photo of Myriah on here soon. She has kept really busy with Drama and being on the JROTC Drill Team.

Poor Sophie needs a haircut. Tomorrow she will be brushed and bathed. I can't help it- I love this scruffy look better than the "just home from the groomer" look. If her hair is not pulled up, she can't barely see!
Bye for now!

Just a few photos to catch up a bit. Some from my trip to Guatemala, some crafts, and Christmas.
This was a wonderful group of people, I feel fortunate to have met them all.

Look at the view!

I adore this little one!

Paper Clay is too much fun!

Christmas Morning with the family. Does it get any better than this?

I love working with paper!

My trip to Guatemala was inspiring to say the least. I met so many people with kind words and big hearts. The children I had the privilege of meeting taught me that one person can make a difference. Thanks.
Also- yes, I took the leap and have my own etsy shop! Woo Hoo! That's good for now. You can see all my pictures from Guatemala on my Facebook page.
