My new sacred Scrapbook Space!

As you all know I moved back to my home in Cuernavaca, México. I spent the most amazing months in Chicago with my awesome boyfriend, but it was time to come back.

As soon as I got here I started my newest proyect: my very own scrapbooking room...and the good news is that IT´S FINISHED! and the better news is that it was completely free!!

I searched everywhere around the house looking for things to use and let me tell you that the outcome was great.

Here is a before and after so you can understand my excitement.

Now I can concentrate on new scrapbooking projects and customized scraps for our clients.

Yes, Mena (my sister/partner) and I, we just opened our own Scrapbook Business in Mexico and we called it:

I´m very excited, I just hope I can keep up with my spanish blog, my english blog and the business!!
But if many women can do it, I´m pretty sure I can.

What do you think about the new room, you like it?

I´m back!

Yes, indeed, after a nightmare of airport adventure...I´m HOME!

Cuernavaca is the place I come from, and after my lovely time in Chicago with my boyfriend, I return to my Mom, Dad, Brother, Sister, Chihuahua dog and friends after 6 months of absence.

It was a nightmare because I had the "clever" idea of bringing FIVE carry-ons with me during the flight, apart from my THREE over-weight suitcases. *Which by the way, I want to deeply thanks Stan, my patient and loving boyfriend, for being kind enough to pay $400-freaking-dollars of over-weight!! Can you imagine?  I have some serious luggage issues...

Anyway, the luggage wasn´t a problem, because after the check-in I forgot about them. The problem was to go through TWO flights with my carry-ons.

Ok, seriously, there are no words to describe this, so here´s the pic to prove it:

I wasn´t smiling after 9 hours of suffering...

But I got home safe and very happy to be back to an awesome weather!!

Now, I´m very excited fot my new Scrapbook Room, which I planned weeks ago and I´m ready to put it together!

Happy Thanksgiving scrapbookers!
Here is a new tutorial to make cute cards for the occasion, in 12 easy and fast steps.
I want to give thanks today for my health, my family, my boyfriend, my friends, the lucky I have been to travel this much the past 5 years, the fact that my grandparents are still with me and I can keep learning from them, for having an education, for my mac, for the internet, and for having creativity to express myself on scrapbooking!  GIVE THANKS! never take anything for granted...

This is the final result....isn´t it easy!   Let me know if you have any questions and don´t forget to leave comments, I love to get feedback.

Tutorial Notebook Inner-Cover

I´m back! I was gone for the weekend to NY and let me tell you that it is now my favorite city (with Madrid and Paris) in the world!
I´ll post some of my scrapbooks about the trip as soon as I finish them, but now I want to show you my new tutorial.

Since I have a lot of free time, instead of watching TV or surfing the net, I decided to read...and write all the thoughts that comes to me while reading. So I looked for an old journal and used it for that purpose. I also write quotes and notes on it, from the books that I read and find worthwhile to preserve for future occasions instead of reading it again.

There are so many good books out there, I just joined the amazon zone and I´m mesmerized by the amount of books there are and how many of them I want to read. I´m really into memoirs after finishing Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and can´t wait for her new one, Committed, released on January 2010.

Hope you enjoy the tutorial as much as I enjoyed making it!

Tutorial Accordion Album!

Hello, anybody there?

I´ve been very busy improving my posting techniques so I can offer you a more friendly way to present the projects and I think I´m getting there.

I hope you have as much fun making this project as I did. My boyfriend was sooo happy when I gave him his present...I couldn´t believe that a guy could appreciate an 8 hour scrapbook! I thought he was going to be like -Thanks! Kiss-Bye... but no, he couldn´t stop looking at it and thanking me for it.  It wasn´t a big deal, I loved making it too. Every moment I spent looking at the pictures, matching colors and papers, and remembering those precious moments together...was priceless!

We hung it on the wall of our room and looks beautiful. Not only the scrapbook, but the fact that every time we look at it, it reminds us of the things we did through this 6 months together.
This can be a nice project to follow the development of a baby through a whole year, or to see how kids grow over a year, don´t you think? Enjoy!
