I have decided to get active again in my personal blog. It is a bit strange to come back here, since I spend everyday at the store's blog. I want to be able to have a place, though, where I can post the different things I create. I have been interested in creating paper piecing embellishments and pre-made pages for a while now. With a marvelous husband, two kids, a house to keep up with, and a store to run it seems impossible at times to complete anything. LOL Even so, I will be coming here to not only showcase the projects I do create, but also just to write a bit.
I have always loved to write. Ever since I can remember my escape has always been done through writing. I have a diary that I began for both my children the day I found out I was pregnant with them, and since Giancarlo was born I have to admit that the journaling has stopped. I guess I can do some of that through here... or maybe I should open a blog just for them. Nonetheless, I just want to write.
Today my mom went back to Puerto Rico, after 4 months of being here helping me. I know that she is still alive and that she will be back to visit, but I feel her absence more than usual. Maybe it is the fact that I am a mom of two & I have a better grasp of what she must have gone through; maybe it is just that she is and always will be my mommy... Whatever the reason, I truly miss her.
My mom has always been my biggest fan. Whatever I have dreamed of, my mom has pushed me towards, and has made me feel as though I am invincible. When I began to scrapbook, she was right there cheering me on. The simplest cards or layouts I created were and still are like trophies to her. Recently I told her about my desire of creating paper piecing embellishments using images that I purchase online as my guide and she was all for it. Here is a picture she took of my recent creation:
This is the image I used to create my paper piecing pattern:
I bought this image in www.scrappindoodle.com and the artist's name is Cheryl Seslar. I will continue to create many other embellishments using images or even patterns that I purchase online. My goal is to be able to create a piece a day. Hopefully some of you can keep me accountable... If you happen to like any of the pieces I create and/or are interested in getting them, please let me know.
Love in Christ,
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him would have eternal life." (John 3:16)
