Tea cup nests

  Here are a couple of bird nest I made using tea cup and a saucer I had purchased them at a second hand store for $1.99 ! I used different dried mosses and alot of old jewelry and odds and ends I had here.Most of the jewelry is my grandmothers which I cherish even though its costume but alot of it is really old vintage style.The nests look really nice in my scrap studio and I am looking for more tea cups to make more little nests.

  I can not believe December is just around the corner and I have a lot of crafting to do. This is my favorite time of year and my birthday is almost here! I have to put my Christmas tree up in the next week or two! I am so excited because I love the cold weather and all the holiday decorations!

Have a great Wednesday!

Thanksgiving at Grandmas house

  I just anted to share our last thanksgiving at my Grandparents house this year because the house was sold. My Family decided to have one last holiday at the house to create one last memory with all of us together where it all began. This house is full of memories and will always be Grandmas house to us. It is going to be really hard to let this house go but it was sold a few weeks ago. I grew up in this house played in the huge back yard and love to stay over night! My grandparents had purchased the house over 62 years ago back then it cost them 7.000 dollars ! That was a lot back then.I'm so glad we did this one last time. Sorry if the pictures did not come out to clear but I wanted to share this with you and I am going to scrap this moment and cherish this house always.

Have a wonderful week !

New photos of my mini scrap studio

 Here are some updated photos of my mini scrapbook studio. I thought I would share my little crafty spot where I create my ideas and I get my inspiration. I designed it and I had everything custom made for me by my Buddies brother in -law who is a furniture designer. I still have more ideas but we will see when I get time to get it done. I love to collect vintage nick knacks,bird nest when ever and where ever I can ,because it makes me really happy and it gets my creativity going. I really enjoy spending time in my own little space. A place that makes me happy because I love what I do!

Have a great week !

Rain and Scrapbooking

  I just love when it rains because it the perfect time to be scrapbooking . I think they go together because you can stay indoors and be creative and get those layouts done.I like leave my window open so I can hear the rain outside and it inspires me to be crafty. Last night I was making a Birthday card for Sal`s Niece who is turning 8 tomorrow, and I made her a Build a Bear themed card. I had to go to one of my favorite scrapbook stores to get the supplies that's the only place you will find everything you can imagine, I mean really old stuff you might need. So I was up last night and here is what I came up with.
 We are going to take her to the Build a Bear store for her birthday and surprise her and I just might have to get a bear for myself...lol we will have to see if I don't chicken out to be in line with all the other kiddies.

Enjoy the rainy day !

2 years today

   Today is 2 years a special person  passed away and she is my Grandmother. I miss her everyday and there is not one day that goes by when I don't think about her.I have no regrets because I was there for her until the end. She was always an  important part of my life and I miss not being able to tell in person the things going on in my daily life. I know she can still hear me as I feel her presence when I close my eyes at night, and I ask her to take care of our family and to watch over us. I miss her hugs and most of all her kisses that she gave that showed her never ending love she had. She will always live in my heart and I cherish all the memories of her as a little boy to the man I am today. I thank God for blessing me with such an amazing woman who is my Grandma. I am a lucky man!

I love you Grandma and miss you so much

Your grandson Joe xoxoxo

She is Gone
You can shed tears that she is gone
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her and only that she's gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back
or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Love the rain

  I just love rainy days! Its such a perfect day to stay indoors and scrap, but today I had to go take my dogs to the vet for a follow up. They were all cozy in their doggy carrier and loved the ride. I love driving in the rain and the smell of fresh rain. It will be over by tonight but more is on the way this weekend. Cali needs rain and I need these day to stay in and be crafty. I love the rainy season and it looks like its finaly is here!

Enjoy your weekend !

Halloween night at the refinery

  I hope everyone had a safe trick or treat night! We did something different this Halloween Sal and I went to this refinery called ConocoPhillips in San Pedro California right next to the ports of Los Angeles.  He had mentioned to me that every Halloween since he was little,this company gives out tons of caramel corn. They set up one of their parking lots with rows of employees all in costumes and with box's and box's of caramel corn. I think at least 10 different lanes and you had to be in your car with the windows down and when it was your turn you had to yell out to them
HAPPY HALLOWEEN and they would throw hand fulls of caramel corn bags into your car windows. It was so much fun and the lines where long with cars and family's. Sal said they have been doing this for years and they also decorate the parking lot with Halloween decorations and lights and scary sounds.You can go back as many times as you want, but you had to go back in line again if you wanted more. They do it until they run out and it usually goes late into the night. It is nice for a huge company to give a treat like this to the community and it was really amazing and wanted to share this with you all. Here is what the bags of caramel corn look like.
