favorites in my home

When I buy things at my favorite store, HOMEGOODS or at vintage shops ...I can tell you where the item is going to go in my house. I can vision where it will be placed and what I'm going to do with it.
These are some of my favorite things in my place.
My bedroom
My favorite thing in my room are my pillows. LOVE fluffy pillows. LOL
Here's a close up of my fluffies. :)
 At night I put them on the side of my table.

This if my livingroom. This is what it looked like during Christmas. :)

I love this crate. I think that's what it's called. LOL I put in a lot of goodies. 
I found this drawer at a sale in Sacramento. Fell in love instantly. The container in the very bottom is one that I got from one of the owners of WOW in England.

A fun little register I found in Niles area which is full of vintage shops. 

I found these little spice containers and had to have them. 
Love this typewriter that my dad gave me. He's had it for a long time.
My dining table. Love my dishes.
I wanted to put my towells in something. As soon as I found this wire thing I had to have it. It's not made for towells. It was in the office section. I wrote those words on the labels.
I found these containers the other day. Love them!!
Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite pieces in my house.

a weekend worth blogging about

It's day was spent in bed doing work for WOW Embossing Powders, helping the stores that I'm teaching at place orders for products I'll be using in class, and watching the Jodi Arias trial. LOL It kept me busy all day.

I just came back from a fantastic weekend being with friends!!! It was my birthday gift to myself. I want to thank my friends Angela and Ghia for putting this event together. It was so great!!! I loved it! I spent it with everyone but had special time with my girl, Gina Lideros. This is a picture of she and I in Homegoods....we went out to eat and it just so happen to be next to Homegoods so we went there and had fun doing a little bit of shopping.

Gina and I love to spend our birthdays together...We love so much of the similar things and she totally surprised me with the best gift ever!!!! She bought me a wireless printer. I had so much fun printing pictures that were on my iphone and ipad. Check out my instagram pictures. Thank you Gina!!!!

I made several things while I was there. I was on a mission to create with some awesome products. These two made their debut there.

I used these products along with my WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS, paints by ART ANTHOLOGY, and more!! Here's what I made with these bad boys.

I also made this fun book using random pieces of corrugated board.

I'm excited to be teaching these projects at a lot of my favorite scrapbook stores. I'll be announcing more stores very soon!! We are just finalizing all the projects.

Here are some favorite family photos from our Pier 39 day trip.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. I appreciate it!! Please leave me a message.

Things that I love....

I was looking at some pictures of Sierra today and it just made me smile. I love my little girl!! The things she says and does are so amusing to me. I can listen to her all day! Especially if she's talking about things she feels strongly about. These are some pictures of her that I took last week.

On Saturday the boys stayed the night with us so Angel and Christian could go out on a date. I had so much fun with them. I love that in the morning they came flying into my room so they could snuggle and be silly. I got to snap these pictures of them.
I love frilly pillows! Don't know why...I just do. I can't stop buying them. I think there are about 17 pillows on my bed. Here are some of my favorites!!
I love my room! If I could live on my bed forever...I'd be okay with that. LOL I surround myself with all my pillows and blankets. LOL
One of my most favorite people to spend time with is my son. Now I know some of you won't believe this but this is the absolute truth...this guy is the best kid on the planet! NO JOKE!
I can honestly say that he has never once got into trouble....ever!
If there is anyone that anyone could ever trust with would be him!
I'm such a lucky person! I can honestly say that I have a great family!
My mom is my best friend on the planet!!
I love spending time with my friends Laila, Jen, and Gina!
Love texting with my girls Michelle and Elizabeth!
I love when I get to visit with my friends like Camille and Christine!!
There are so many others!
Thank you for reading my blog!! Please feel free to leave a comment! I promise to read them!!
