Something new!

Some time has passed since my last blog post!

Been going through some changes, all good, thanks to God.

My family is doing great. All of my kids are college students now and of course I was suffering the empty nest syndrome.

Recently I adopted three beautiful puppies: Luna, Principe and Pinky. They are just seven weeks old and a handful.

Obviously my oldest dog is jealous and requires more attention, so as you can imagine my free times has been cut short.

Still had time to work some of my projects, specially my Christmas cards, which were a big hit. Here are some pictures:
Don’t know about you, but Valentine’s Day feels so close. I feel I won’t be able to finish my projects on time.
