BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND BE HAPPY


Hello my friends, welcome back! We are almost in February, can you believe it? I love February, is such a lovely month, especially for Valentine's day. Well, it's just around the corner, and I love it because we show our love ones how much we care for them and appreciate them.

It also got me in to thinking, that to really love another person, you have to love and believe in yourself first. I think that when you care about yourself and think of yourself as a worthy person, everyone around you acknowledges you and respects you more.

It's so nice to treat yourself with respect and be kind to others.

Well my friends, if you need a cheer me up, you can click here for a link about tips on how to love yourself by C. Rainfield.

See you soon!

D.I.Y. Fabric-Covered Pencil Holder




Hello my friends, I'm glad to be back and bring you a very easy D.I.Y. (do it yourself) project. As you know I work with lots of color pencils, markers, etc., so I'm always in the need of all sorts of containers for my office supplies. I decided to create a chic and easy pencil holder with a scrap of fabric that I had left over from another project.

You just need very few supplies such as small container (I used the smallest sized Pringles chips container). A piece of fabric, scissors and fabric glue.

All you do is cut the fabric to the size needed for the container. Then, you wrap the fabric to the container using the fabric glue. For myself, I cut the fabric in a rectangular fashion, and I tucked in part of the fabric into the top rim of the container, as well as the bottom rim of the container. Then, you just have to put some glue and wrap the fabric as you rotate it.

Well my friends, I hope you'll like this project, and make lots of cute and very stylish containers for yourself. See you soon!

A New Beginning



Hello my friends, welcome back. How were your holidays? I hope you had a good time. I'm very grateful because I celebrated the holidays with my family and friends. It was such a blessing to see my nephew Dante doing good, and having fun, as you know, he suffers from cancer. *To learn more about my nephew, just click here.*

Well, this time of the year, always makes you wonder about changes, and things that you could improve. This year is no exception, and there are many things that are on my list of resolutions.

On top of my list is to eat healthier and cook more. I always liked cooking, but living in this fast-paced environment, makes you eat more fast-food thus having to make poor choices. I'm sure I can save some money and be healthier by not eating out so much...  : )

Another goal for this 2011 is to be more compassionate, and help out charities, especially the Ronald McDonald House Charities since I've seen first hand the amazing job that the charity does with sick children.

Well, that leaves me to my final goal that I would like to share, and that is to have more faith and get closer to God. I do believe in him, and I think he's always guides the way, even if you are in pain or you think you are alone. 

Well my friends, I hope you have a wonderful year, and that all of your dreams and hopes become a reality. See you soon!
