Our Creative Spaces

Sooo happy to be back even though not much happening in the craft dept :(  Anyway, I've finished cutting tags for my ribbon bits and here they are in all their colorful glory:
I am no where near done but I've finished about half of the total I have to wrap.
It was rather relaxing so I'm looking forward to tackling the rest of this project.
For more creative spaces go here.
Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Friday Favoritas...

Sabor a Cajeta encourages us to look back through our fav photos and share them here. My Princess is OBVIOUSLY my favorite subject so every photo folder in my computer includes her in at least half the pictures, if not all! Some I like more than others, and this is one of those I truly like; here we are whale watching on a sailboat and Renata really enjoyed lounging on the deck.
Thank you Lisa Renata for the opportunity to showcase our loved ones and our favorite photos! Have a lovely weekend and happy blogging ~

Friday 5: Out of Place

It's been awhile since I've written anything... I don't like that... every week I go over to Friday 5 to eye their questions and I deem them either too difficult, too personal or I'm honest and just tell myself I'm not in the mood to think... Enough of that! Here I am with an entry this week :)

1.What non-food items are in your refrigerator or freezer?
I currently have some US dollars left over from our vacation, at different times I've had documents, tickets, etc.

2.What non-book items are on your bookshelves? Seasonal ornies, decorations - I change it every season/holiday

3.What song or album in your music collection doesn’t fit in with your usual tastes?
Willie Nelson - he doesn't really go with my classical or classic rock cds :)

4.What item in your wardrobe really doesn’t match anything else?
A loud blouse I got at a Christmas exchange at work - yuck!

5.What scar on your body did you receive in the unlikeliest of ways?
I did not plan on having a child, so I guess my C-section scar counts as unlikely, no?

Thank you for reading this randomness and I wish you a great weekend!

Blogtoberfest Giveaway Bonanza!

Wow, yesterday I "happened" to stumble upon Curlypops and all the info regarding the above mentioned event. Right away I wanted to sign up and decided that participating would put an end to my lack of inspiration as I would be forced to make something to giveaway, yay!!!
I would like to offer a set of 4 (four) handmade coasters and other goodies that might  jump in the envie during the next two weeks :)
This - my - giveaway ends on Oct. 31st at 10pm and on Nov. 1st I will post and contact the winner, so make sure I can get a hold of you in case you win.
Go visit all the participating blogs and good luck!
P.S. Photo of coasters to follow soon.

My Creative Space

No, this is not a post about my crafting area, just of what is on my desk! This is my first time participating in Our Creative Spaces fun weekly blog event. I find it very motivating to see what the other participants are working on at the moment - and since I seem to have lost my crafting inspiration (mojo) - maybe something will spark my creativity again!
I decided to work on something productive - in hopes of getting inspired by the colors and textures - and started tracing some tags on an empty cereal box. I'm big on recycling so I decided to put the empty box to good use, I will be using the tags to wrap my lengths of ribbon on them. You see, here in PV ribbon is either expensive or I'm too poor to buy a whole spool of it, so the typical thing to do is buy it by the meter. As you can imagine I have several meters - or bits of some - getting all tangled up in my "ribbon case". Once they are sorted I will post a photo of them looking pretty :)
Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to participating again next week, hopefully with a real project!

Go Pink! Please!!!

Unfortunately, we all seem to know someone or have a someone in our family that had, has or might have some sort of cancer... and as you also know, the month of October is awareness month for breast cancer - the type of cancer one of my younger sisters had - therefore the pink...
Would you be so kind as to visit Megan where you will learn all about participating in her blog this month, the more entries = more donations.
My entry will be posted on the 14th, hope you visit the blog to comment :)
I thank you in advance for your participation, spread the word and let's help anyway we can.

Wordless Wednesday

The Gallery - Blue

Not one but two shades of blue in this picture! I took it over two years ago while on a whale watching trip on a sailboat. The island is called Marietas and is at the northern tip of our bay - Bahia de Banderas.
It was a great day in spite of the fact that no whales were seen!
