Creative Blog Tour

Good Afternoon Crafty Peeps,
 I know I know, It's been FOREVER since my last post. But My awesome friend Jessica from nominated me for this super cute Creative Blog Tour! So here I am! :)
 Jessica and I met via a paper crafts group on Facebook. We can seriously talk about crafting for days! And we kinda sorta! She's not only a friend and fellow crafter but fantastic mommy and wife! Also my CTMH mgr. She goes above and beyond for you! She has for me...and we've never met in person (only via Skype!!). Loyal, loving, And most caring! I heart you Jess!

What am I working on?
Currently working on a couple of invitations for birthdays, trying to finish my kids baby scrapbooks, a couple of baby tutu/headband sets, and getting tons of ideas for my daughter's Frozen themed Bday party...which isn't till! but you know how that goes "Mom OH EM GEE look at allll the Frozen stuff!!" (while at toys r us looking for a Frozen backpack, of course)
How does my work differ from others in the genre?
Ummm, good question...I don't know if i have a certain style? I know I like cartoony, girly, cutesy stuff, pretty paper, stamping, Tim Holtz inking and LOVE using my good o'l Cricut expression! I won't trade it for the world. Love that thing. I guess it just depends what I'm working on.
Why do I create what I do?
I have to say I watched my Mom, Aunts, and Family friends always doing something for Birthdays or party favors and centerpieces..(Puerto Rico Style :) ) with tulle and tons of jordan! Sooo old school...but nevertheless I loved helping. And sometimes even adding my own twist. I would say that after having my daughter My creative side just took on a life of it's own! It's like this saying I've heard a few times... Being a crafter is like having 256,347 tabs open on your PC. And that my friends is what goes on in my head ALL THEE TIME...hahahahaha!
Now to my picks of fellow Crafters to whom I will pass on the torch!!
First up is Deb B Craftin from
OMG I cannot tell you how stinkin awesome Deb is! I mean wow her crafts come to life forreal! She does these amazing things with twine that u didn't know you can do. And once you read her posts you'll see why I love reading them...She is one funny cookie!
Next up is Wanda Hornung a.k.a. Deezy from
This is not only my fellow crafter but love her like a Sister! She is a whiz with vinyl! I mean she will put vinyl on mostly anything you want. If you want to represent your company logo, or team, or yourself ...this is the lady you must see!!
Last but not def not least is my dear friend Deidre Smith from
This girl is beyond amazing with paper crafts, cards, stamping, and most of all coloring with Copics!!
Absolutely gorgeous stuff! She's done fantastic coloring with Saturated Canary Stamps to Tilda from Magnolia. Just breathtaking work. Pleasure is all mine to know her!

 Here are some of my past creations...
