Sad News...

My dear Papa passed away March 9th 2010. I have just returned from Hawaii for his funeral and burial. What and extremely difficult time for my family. We have lost not only a Father, Grand-Father and Great-Grandfather but a confidant, mentor, counselor and friend. He was truly a remarkable man who placed his family above all else. He always worked to strengthen us and sustain us through good times and bad. When the Reverend came to eulogize him he said that when my Papa stood before God to receive his judgement he believed that when God asked my Papa what he had done with the life he gave him and that my Papa responded by showing him all of us. He said he believed that the Lord said well done Alfredo you are most worthy in the eyes of your God enter the kingdom of heaven. I, too believe that God, upon judging my Papa found him worthy. He was the best man I know and he will be terribly missed. While I weep a seemingly endless amount of tears I weep not for my Papa because I know he has taken his rightful place in heaven. I weep for myself and my family and the tremendous loss of a wonderful patriarch. A Hui Hou Papa!

Red, White and Black All Over...

HolidaysCraftiness 226 Red White and Black is such a striking color combination. These tulips are one of my favorite fillers for these too cute baskets from Papertrey Vintage Picnic Set. Its got to be one of the most versatile sets I own. You can dress it up or dress it down. It just depends on the look your trying to achieve. I hope it inspires you to do something creative today.

She's Back.. Eloise Greengrass back in my lineup..

HolidaysCraftiness 228

Eloise, since she entered my collection of Stamping Bella Stamps, has to be one of my most favorite bellas. She is so cute that she is almost impossible for me to resist on a regular basis. Here I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol and added some stickle shine to her wings. I hope she inspires you just as she inspires me.

Purple PJ Day!

Blog Photos 131 Sorry for the lack of posts, I have been so busy dealing with some extended family issues and my crafty self has gotten some work done too.. Its something I like to do to de-stress so I'll hopefully have some pictures for you next week of what I've been up to lately. Purple PJ's are a fun way to say hi or even hope you  feel better soon. This adorable little Riley is one of my favorites. I love how you can change him into a her just by switching up the PJ colors. Those bunny slippers and little bear are classic. I hope he inspires you to do something creative today..
