This is the view from the window in my Mom's kitchen, I love standing there and looking out early in the morning, after a rainstorm or at dusk - I just love the mountains that surround our town! Especially during the rainy season   
 - now- when everything is lush and green... worth the humidity we endure :)
In this photo the sky and the mist from the mountain are almost the same greyish color, love it!

Sunday Scribblings #230 - Faith

I have Faith in so many things! For starters in myself :), next comes Humanity... why? That is a good question... I guess the thought of not believing in my heart that things CAN be better/improve is too scary to even consider it...
Faith brings me a sense of peace, having faith helps me get up everytime I fall and gives me the willingness to start over again. Without faith there would be no miracles! In order for dreams to come true I must have faith in them, in myself, in others and ultimately in God!
I thank God for my faith in Him and pray my faith in certain others is everlasting :)

The Gallery: A Memory

Tara from Sticky Fingers is right when she says this weeks subject is tough... Indeed, how do you pick one of the many/daily memories we create, especially when children are involved!
Of course I have many thanks to my beautiful Princess, however, I do not have to think too hard to know what are some of the best memories for both of us: ANY day at the beach is a wonderful with my little Mermaid - there are many photos of beach outings, all with great memories behind them but I had to pick  just one so here she is in all her clumsy glory!

Sunday Scribblings #222 - Me.

or in thiscase: I! :)
I am making a concious effort to REALLY, TRULY be aware of the wonderful life I have - I am not talking about perfection as the definition of that word can mean something to me and have a totally different meaning to the person reading this, is more about noticing the daily gifts we receive/enjoy.
As my friend Jackie says: if there are dishes to wash is because there was food to be eaten, and if I have laundry to do is because I have clothes to wear... UNLIKE many people!
I want to count my blessing everyday: family, friends, a beautiful daughter, a good partner, a roof over our heads...
I must appreciate my good health as I am witnessing first hand what is like to - from one day to the next - NOT be able to take care of yourself, to depend on others for most things including having someone else take care of your baby because you are unable to.
I give thanks for all the things I notice and for the many that go UNNOTICED, for those gifts I am aware of and the ones that I take for granted. I want to be a better person by noticing the small things in life - EVERYDAY!
I must love myself unconditionally in order for me to love others the same way :)

The Gallery - Motherhood

I have many photos of my Princess and I, many examples of what motherhood is...  I found it so very hard to pick one. I chose this one because of her funny face! 
We had been strolling on the boardwalk and made a stop so I could feed her some "esquites" - cooked corn kernels - but as soon as she saw the camera posing took priority and what could I do but wait?! Oh how I miss those days when she was little and spontaneous!
I am glad I made the time to enjoy her then and I cherish my time with her now ~

Sunday Scribblings #219 - Superhero (ine)

There are superheroes all around us - in my opinion - we just need to stop and take a look, really see what others are doing on a dialy basis to make a difference in someone's life...
All those mothers who in one way or another sacrifice one thing or (many) another in order to provide for her child/ren...
What about those gentle souls who volunteer at retirement centers, youth camps, etc? I've never thank them, have you?
According to popular belief a superhero/ine does something for someone and then is acclaimed by the whole wide world, however, the REAL superheroes I know are not even acknowledged... most of the time.
Wouldn't be great to take the time and thank a teacher, doctor, nurse, volunteer, mother, father, sibling - whoever might be the superhero/ine in your life, we all have one! Think about it and act on it...

Wordless Wednesday - Thursday Edition

Colorful Fun at Dusk

THEME THURSDAY - Bright Colors!

This week's challenge over at is bright colors, a not very common but very enjoyable theme. 

 This is a collaged page for a glue book titled ABSTRACT GARDEN.

Writer's Workshop

Today I am participating in the above mentioned assignment over at and the subject I am choosing is the following: “What did you once lose? and I am to write about my search to find it again... here I go...

Creativity seem to be an eluvise being in my life. More often than I care to admit I seem to be rather uninspired, at a dead end, not knowing which way to turn - IF there is a turn...
There have been times when I've searched and looked for my inspiration so I can feel creative again, other times I've just waited for my muse to come back from wherever it is that is goes to hide...
It seems there might be a link between my emotions and my creativity or lack of... I never know what will work each time it happens. Someone elses photo, project, creation might become the spark I need to get started; other times nature inspires me to either pick up where I left or start anew...
At times I've just been idle for a period of time and then, all of a sudden inspiration strikes again and I am off! There have been times when having agreed to make something for someone acts as pressure and I have no other option but to finish whatever project I might have taken on... on those ocasions the journey is no where as enjoyable as when I am not working under pressure...
I am also known for starting something at the eleventh hour just because inspiration happens to hit at that time :)
There is nothing like being elated about a subject/project/medium/creation! When pure enjoyment of the project at hand is what matters... It is in those ocasions when the end result is always pleasing to ME!
Regardless of how often I lose my muse, how long it takes to get my inspiration back, I know deep down that it will return, it will come back to me... sometimes at full force, other more subtle, however, I always rejoice at having it back in any shape or form!

Sunday Sketches

I cannot recall exactly when it was that I started to believe I could not draw... ever since I can remember I have heard myself say so... And then this year, subtly, I started to entertain the idea that maybe I could teach myself how to do rough drawings, nothing too fancy... Where or why did this notion pop in my head? I do not know and have not tried to find out the reason, I am just letting myself enjoy the ride and find my style... I knew I was serious about starting to draw/sketch when over a month ago I got myself a notebook specifically for my drawings...
Even though I've been sketching for a while in my notebook, this is the first time I am actually sharing one of my sketches with the (blogging) world... I tend to draw whimsical faces, shapes, figures as I find them more forgiving and since I have issues with simetry :) I favor drawing half faces, the back of heads and such...

I think I will name her "Timida", which means shy in Spanish as that is how I feel about my drawings/sketches... However, in a way it's liberating to finally share my "artsy" attempts :)
Thank you for stopping by and have a great week~

Self-portraits at The Gallery

Like most mom's I am ALWAYS the one behind the camera! Before my Princess was born, I liked having my picture taken because I was always put together, slim and was continuously told how photogenic I was SO it was a pleasure rather than a pain. However, now that I am a mother things have changed dramatically and I do not mind not being in the photos except when I am asked: Do you have a photo of the two of you together???...
In the last couple of years my Funny Girl has started taking photos of me, most of them get deleted when downloaded, not because she is a bad photographer, but because I do not like the way I look.
For some unknown reason the one below got saved, it surprises me because in addition to the fact that I am sans make-up I am not wearing EARRINGS and in my book that is equal to being naked! :) So here I am in all my naked glory! hahahahaha ~
In order to accept ourselves as we really truly are, we should do this exercise more often - I think!

Flower Twinchie

Something Completely Different....." is a blog that posts a weekly challenge - Congratulations! They are celebrating their first year since going live, may there be many more years of fun challenges. The title of this post is the challenge for this week and in keeping with my reclying theme is weekend, here is my creation:

I first used a piece of cardboard and hand colored it green, I then put a scrap of printed paper I had lefover from another project, added a couple of newsprint flowers (painted with watercolors and outlined with a sharpie) and a lonely butterfly I had laying around. I am happy with the result and just hope it meets the requirements.
Go visit and enjoy the beautiful entries.

C is for Chocolate Colors

Today I am participating for - the first time - in the weekly challenge over at and here is what I came up with:
Except for the textured cardstock I used as background, everything else is recycled paper. The tree trunk I made by using watercolors on a sheet of newsprint and outlined it with a sharpie; the top of the tree is made with a newspaper photo and a magazine add background - all of them in what I think qualifies as the right color family: Chocolate! I am now off to have some :)

Sunday Scribblings - #212 - Dinner

I love the written word and for the longest time I've been wanting to participate in this weekly challenge... up until now I always found an excuse not to, however, tonight I am either inspired :) or DINNER is an easy subject for a food lover like me!

Dinner here in Mexico is not like in the US - the main meal of the day - but since moving in with my Sweetheart it has become more of a structured meal because its the only meal we as a family share during the week.
I set the table - and like doing so - the three of us sit down to enjoy whatever I cooked that day. We talk about our day, joke, laugh, discuss the plans for the following day and in general enjoy this time together.
There have been days when my Princess is in bed already by the time we sit down to eat and on those rare ocassions our conversations are a bit different and it feels almost like a date :)
Either way, day to day we grow as a family and sitting down together for dinner - regardless of how elaborate or not, light or heavy,early or late - is just another way of making memories I already cherish...

Thank you for stopping by, if you would like to participate and/or read neat entries visit
Have a wonderful week and I look forward to participating again soon!

Friday 5 - The Bard

In honor of William Shakespeare’s birthday, here are this week’s questions!

1.In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Lysander says, “Ay me! for aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth…”
How has this proven (or not proven) to be the case in your life? YES, I THINK IN ALL AREAS OF OUR LIVES THERE ARE UPs AND DOWNs AND LOVE IS NO EXCEPTION TO THAT RULE :)

2.In Hamlet, the title character says, “Frailty, thy name is woman!” Who in your life has proven this not to be true? MY MOTHER And if you’re willing to share, who in your life has proven this to be completely true? ONE OF MY SISTERS

3.In The Merry Wives of Windsor, Pistol says, “Why then the world’s mine oyster,
Which I with sword will open.”
Ignoring the possible sexual meaning here, how do you feel about oysters? I LOVE THEM! PARTICULARLY RAW - when there is no risk of salmonella! :)

4.In The Merchant of Venice, Lorenzo says, “The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not mov’d with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.”
Do you agree, and have you known anyone who seemed to be completely unmoved by any kind of music? YES, I AGREE. AND YES, I HAVE COME ACROSS MY SHARE OF NEGATIVE UNHAPPY PEOPLE WHO CANNOT GRASP THE JOY MUSIC CAN BRING INTO OUR LIVES.

5.Is Shakespeare overrated, or is he truly the western world’s greatest writer? I THINK HE IS GREAT!

This is my first time participating in this challenge and I have enjoyed it. If you would like to give it a try go to

I wish you a very happy weekend!

Friday Fill-ins # 171

I am a day late for this but I hope it's ok - I really enjoy this type of challenges so in my opinion "Better late than never!" Here is my colaboration:

1. In 1992, I was SAILING AWAY!.

2. ALL laughter and smiles.

3. Do what you CAN, with what you HAVE, where you ARE.

4. WITH MY LOVE is where I'd like to be.

5. The trees and flowers are telling me SPRING IS HERE!.

6. LOVE AND FAITH that just keeps going on.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to GOING HOME, tomorrow my plans include LUNCH WITH MY FAMILY and CALLING FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
Enjoy your weekend! ~
