My heart broke tonight...

...this won't be a regular blog post nor will it be anything craft related, but I wanted to pay tribute to my family dog, Minnie.  She passed away today and I'm so sad!  But I'm more sad for my mom and dad (especially my dad).  Her brother passed away almost 2 years ago (in Jan).  Minnie for as much as we knew wasn't sick.  I'm thanking GOD every minute since I've heard the news that I got to spend some time with her this past Thanksgiving.  Minnie was afraid of Fuji, so while we were visiting my parents, she pretty much stayed inside their room.  So every day and every time I got home, I'd go inside their room to play with her.  So back to today, my mom called (she's visiting us, staying at my sis) and told me that Minnie passed away.  I went cried my eyes out and went and told my hubby (who was in bed sleeping already), both dogs were sleeping but when I was bawling like a baby, Fuji stood up and came over and literally kissed the tears away.  Now most of you are probably thinking what's wrong with that?  Well, I never let him lick me, maybe under my chin when I do say "kiss" but that's rare but today it was like he knew I was hurt and sad.  And this folks, is why my heart broke.  Dogs have a great sense when it comes to their owners...  They are loyal, they love you unconditional no matter how many times you yell at them.  Losing a pet is NEVER easy!  I keep telling myself I will not get another dog...but how could you not have one in your life?!!?!?!?  Anyhow, before I end, I wanted to post a picture of our sweet Minnie:

If you stayed to read my ramblings, thank you!  Hug your pets and your family, for we don't know how long we'll have them!  Aloha!

DT Call...

Hi guys! How was your Thanksgiving?  Mine was great, we went home to my parents for a week and had a good time playing tourist.  Now I'm slowly getting back, trying to catch up and get ready for Christmas.  Can't believe it's 3 weeks away!  Yikes! LOL!

Anyhow, I am looking for 2 talented people to join the TGF family as Guest DT.  This is for our Berry Sweet Daily Life Kit.  If you are interested, please send me an email showcasing some of your daily life (Project Life type) layouts. Previews for this add-on kit will be in Jan.  Can't wait to see what you create!

Introducing Berry Sweet Print and Cut File

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm introducing the Berry Sweet Print and Cut file from The Greeting Farm!


 Isn't it cute?!?!?!  This kit contains one Berry Sweet Anya and about 29 element pieces!  Berry Sweet Anya can be cut in a couple of could print and cut her or you could cut each individual layers.  The elements are all print and cut (which I absolutely love!) I'm sure you'll have loads of fun using this kit!  The beauty of it being digital is you could use this over and over!  You can purchase this kit now at The Greeting Farm store!

But before you head on over here are a couple of cards I made using the kit:

And don't forget to check out Aeryn's and Julie's blog for more inspiration!

Several Announcements

First let me repost this information because I see tons of traffic on my blog looking for Mindy Terasawa.  She is currently not selling her digital kits.  Last she told me, she was taking a break and not sure exactly when and if she's coming back.  Lets all pray she does!  I miss her work but understand her situation (having a new job and being burnt out on designing).  If you want to contact her, please email me and I'll let her know.

Second announcement...well I can't really say exactly but you definitely should come and visit my blog within the next two week as there will be a sneak peek of something super cute!  That's all I can say for now...

Third, I am failing miserably on the POTD...been working on this sneak and I've been forgetting to take the pics.  I made have to put it on pause for now...  I'm really sad about this as I love looking back at the pics.  But with this new adventure, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to work w/some lovely ladies.

So with all that said, if you're a fan of cute stuff and daily documenting please come visit often (^_~)

Have a great day everyone!

Happy Halloween!

I'm always excited when Halloween comes around because it always signifies the coming of Christmas! The day our Lord and Savior was born!  A time to be at peace and love everyone!  First off, we should always love everyone but Christmas brings us to that place.  At lease I hope it does! LOL!  Anyhow, I no longer "celebrate" Halloween as a Born Again, but I do pass out candies and dress the dogs up (^_^) 

OK, if you're wondering why I haven't posted any POTD, well, I got super busy! I missed out on a couple of days.  Like "Around Town" and the "Moon".  I didn't think I'd get that busy but I did.  I'll have to post them tomorrow after Bible Study and start on Nov's POTD.  Are there anyone out there joining in on the fun?  Let me k now!  Here's Nov's list:

Thanks FATMUSMSLIM for this!

PS, keep checking back as I have a sneak ready to peek soon!  All my crafty friends will think it's pretty cute!

PSS - I forgot to mention, if you're looking for Mindy Terasawa's kits, she's no longer is selling them.  As of right now she's on a break and not sure whether or not she'll be selling or designing again.  I will keep you posted of any information I have on when and where she'll be selling her kits.

POTD - 102413 - Weather

Today was the first time since summer started that I was able to walk the dogs.  I hate the heat even if I woke up early it was already hot, so now that fall is here and it's slightly cooler, I decided to take the two rascals out for a walk.  

I always thought I was a summer girl.  I'm finding more and more that I really love Fall and Winter.  I guess living in Hawaii and Cali, we don't really have a proper Fall and Winter and I miss it terribly!  I will only say this once, but I miss the East Coast weather! ha! was a good walk and I loved how cool and gloomy it was...reminds me of London! Sigh, I miss London!  Moving on...  LOL! Have a great evening everyone!

POTD 102313 - View From Here

Yes, I am still stuck on yesterday's POTD and I guess it'll come to me once I get out of the house.  I don't know about you, but I absolutely love being at home, especially on a semi-cold gloomy day.  If I didn't have some men here cleaning out my dryer ducts, I would have showered and got back into my PJ's! LOL!  

So for today's POTD which is view from here, I decided to show you my view from where I'm at oppose to the view outside my window.

My desktop, yes, got tons of stuff on my desktop and well, I need to clean them up! Ugh! Anyhow, I've been pretty much at my desk today, been working on a sneak that I should have up but waiting to hear what I am suppose to write.  So stay's gonna be super cute!

POTD 18 - 21 Oct 2013

I haven't flaked out on this POTD yet. I didn't get a chance to post last Friday.  In-laws came and decided to stay the night so I was in mad rush to clean and launder the bedsheets (the guest room is always the last for me to clean!).  Sat we went and saw a dying aunt (so, so sad!) and then take the in-laws all the way back home; we live in Mexico and they live in north Cali...I joke! It feels that way! Anyhow, here are my POTD from the 18th - 21st.

101813 - Something that made me smile:  I'm a sucker for nail polishes and I just bought these for the NEX. Been wanting to get this brand.  I checked the NEX before I left for London and it was definitely cheaper to buy it here in the states. So assoon as I got back, I went and bought a few colors.

 101913 - Letters:  I have tons and tons of Thickers (you can never have enough!) and this is my favorite font and color, one that I use often.

102013 - 4 o'clock:  This is what I was doing at 4 o'clock, having a late lunch early dinner. I was super tired so I slept in till 10, and I started cleaning and fixing some stuff around the house and forgot to eat lunch so the hubby and I went and got In n Out (as I am typing this, I'm really craving for one now! LOL).

 102113 - Calm - This is my calm...Fuji napping.  He was actually on Benedryl as he seems to have some type of allergies (so we think), so the Vet suggested 2 - 4 Benedryl in an 8 hour period, I only gave him 2.  Wonder what 3 would have done? LOL  Giving him 2 tonight, so I can clean his nails and ears (where the infections/irritations are.).

OK, I will try to post today's POTD which is  Something in my Town...not quite sure what that will be...I may have to skip this one as this one is a challenge for me.  Is anyone out there playing along? Let me know!  Have a great day!  Hope to share some crafty things soon!

Today's POTD (Picture of the day) is Fruit! I had some homemade whipped cream in the fridge and wanted to use it all up so I had the hubby stop by the store and grab some strawberries so I could make us some Eaton Mess...yum!  Felt like I was back in London...ahhh, how I miss the UK! Anyhow, here's my POTD...hope there's someone out there joining me (^_^)

Here's my Eaton Mess, so yummy!

Tomorrow's POTD is "Something that made you smile".

Daily Photo Challenge

It's been pretty boring on my blog so I thought I'd try to do this photo a day challenge.  I loved looking back on my last photo challenge (which I failed miserably!) and wished I had continued with it.  Oh well, no use crying over spilled milk! I hope some of you (I hope there's someone out there reading this poor pathetic blog of mine...) will join me! If you do, please link me on the comment so I can visit your blog.) I may not be able to post everyday but I will try and post all the pics.  So here's Oct's list; took this from the web and even if it's I think 2012 or 2011...not sure, I liked what was on the list...

(Photo A Day list/pic by @fatmumslim)

Even though it's the middle of the month, I'll start from there.  Oct 16, 2013  Here's my pic for today:

Stamps for Sale!

Hello fellow crafters! I've been MIA I know! Family stuff and a nice vacay to Europe was what took me away from blogland and crafting.  But I'm back, and hopefully I can blog on occasion.  I will definitely craft, its just getting me to blog is the! Anyhow, I'll try to make more of an effort, especially since the holiday season is coming and I got lots of crafting to do!  

Anyhow, I need to get to the point of this post (^_^).  I have some new and old stuff up for sale, please contact me if you want any right away if you want any of these because I am also posting them on Craigslist.  Hope you like some of these stamps, I love them all but I haven't been using any in so long, I figure it's best for me to give it to someone who'll make good use of them. As always prices are negotiable.

Back to blogging, sort of...

Its been five months since I last blogged! Wowzer! To be honest, with Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, I really don't have time to blog. Blogging takes a lot from you, you have to compose a post, resize pictures, add my siggie and upload it all.  Not only is it a pain to do all this, I rarely upload my pics from my phone onto my computer. Until of course I'm outta space.  With that said if you haven't guessed it, my phone had no more room for pics I was over 4000+ pics, so I had to finally upload them to my computer and save it onto my EHD. Not a fun process!  Anyhow, this post will be picture heavy with a few of the things I've created.  So sit back and enjoy the show (^_^)
