Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a joyous and blessed Easter Sunday. HE IS RISEN!!
Today was a day full of emotions and mixed feelings. 1st Easter Celebration without my precious father. Not our first holiday without him, but one of his favorites...only because of the candy!!! He loved jelly beans! I didn't buy any candy this year for a couple of reasons...#1 - I would have eaten them all my myself before I could pour them into the candy basket #2....I would have eaten them all my myself before I could pour them into the candy basket!! Raquel had some candy from her program, so she was not without. This was also our last Easter with just 4 of us Macias'. Next year Baby Ellie Sophia Macias will be with us! Can't wait!! She's going to be our baby bunny!! Raquel and I drove up to Murrieta this AM. Breakfast, a movie (Rio - so cute) and then dinner with my daughter in law's family. Special day with special people.

My two kiddos....Raquel sure loves her brother

And then! and then the Maintenance Required lite is on in my new car!! Not even 5000 miles on it and less than a year old!! Toyota Service Center here I come!

Mojo is back!!!

Okay, okay...I know it's been a LONG while since I've opened my blog and posted. But I'm here now!!
Been busy lately stamping again!! Whew! I really enjoyed getting my mojo back! (PS. can anyone really tell me what Mojo means???)
I went to a SU workshop at my friend Jenn's home 2 weeks ago. I think that's what got me going again. Within a couple of days, I got creative. Stayed up late one night and cranked out several cards. Used SU punches and papers along with some CTMH paper and emellishments. I want to credit Dawn G. and others from whom I've been channeling some inspiration thru their videos.

It's a good thing the colors match well enough because I have lots of CTMH paper!! Boy, do I!!
Going to attend another workshop on Saturday. And after my house is put back in order a bit more, I am going to get back to hosting my workshops once again. I have so many projects to share.
Need to learn to use my digital scrapbooking program too! Sooooo many things to accomplish.

Here's what I've been working on...
