Wishing each one of you that may stumble upon this post, a Happy New Year !

Yesterday was my birthday. Usually my birthday puts me in a strange mood. I think about my past years and wonder what to look for in future. Yesterday was no different but I had some good memories from last year. I was with C and J and J had popped up behind me early morning of the 31st with a beautiful birthday cake, a bouquet of roses and the best birthday greeting I have ever received from anyone. Those times have passed but memories remain...

....and now off to 2012! New hopes...and hopefully new achievements. This year has started off with me passing my driver's learning permit test, so I look forward to learn to drive soon. I call it a small step towards being less dependent on others. This new year also begins with me going to pick up my little princess from her dad's visit. The 10 long days of being lonely are finally over!

Hurdles and challenges...yes, that's what I am going through right now

I did start this blog as a suggestion from a counselor I use to see regularly. But I'm guessing perhaps blogging is for people much different than I am. Sort of how I felt when I first went to see my counselor but then I got hooked and couldn't imagine being without one! I am waiting for that connection to happen between me and my blog!!

So what was I talking about in my last blog?? Ah the "beads"... I still love them, still want to create some beautiful jewelry with them but like I said in the very beginning, hurdles and challenges are back on the very brand new chapter of life that I had just started. Will talk about that long winded story some other time.

Right now, I am faced with letting go of my little princess to her dad's (my ex) for a visit. The longest visit she has ever been on...a total of 10 days. I have never been away from her that long and I am not sure how I feel.

I am left staring at her room, doing her bed, putting up her toys and missing her little busy body around me. 

Before she left for her dad's, she had to paint her nails. Why yeah, got to look good for her dad! She loves to visit her dad and I am trying to get use to that thought still after 1.5 years since these visitations started. Can't imagine how little those hands were just a few years ago...and yes I will be still saying the same a few years from now.

Not feeling in the holiday Christmas-y mood at all right now. Last year same time I had the two of my favorite people here with me, my bf J and my princess C. This year J is with his folks far away in another state and C in another county with her dad. The past years memories keep rewinding in my head. 

This Christmas I would like to tell everyone to enjoy and make the best of today and now and realize what u got and how precious it is because it could be all gone! No matter how promising and unbelievable it may seem but fate has its own ways and you can lose it all in a snap! Kiss your loved ones, hug them tight and make good cherishable memories..................................MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Well.. definitely been a while since I posted here. Sorry! But ever have those moments when you are really excited about something until you get it or you know you are there? I guess this blog has been one of those things. 
I was really excited to finally be able to afford to have internet connection, a brand new laptop and a blog and then when I had it, I kind of got busy with other things. And busy I was! 

I am working on starting a brand new chapter in life. Fortunately, I got the chance to start over on a lot of things that I messed up in my past. Got divorced, won the custody of my child, had opportunity to work for a short time , had an auction for one of my paintings and moved into a brand new apartment...and by "new" I mean brand- stinkin'- new! Newly constructed with all the basic comfort I could wish for.

And now talking about the latest in my life....It's been all about the BEADS lately. I use to create some jewelry from scrap...oh ..sometime long back ago in my tween. But that interest has poked out its head again lately and I am into making jewelry. The more I read about it in books and over the internet the more I feel the itch to create. For now though I am not able to invest much into it. So I purchase from sales and clearances, beads and findings to make simple jewelry out of in hopes of selling some online and in real life. 

Today I shopped at Micheal's Art and Crafts store during their clearance event . So I am guessing my next post will be about what I was able to come up with the beads and findings I bought today. Can't wait to share!

As the name suggests, this blog is created for all the moments of my life that I feel are worth blogging. Be it just my thoughts, events of a day, new experiments/experiences or inspirations and creations.

I hope there is something to peek each ones interest that takes time to stop by my blog.

Welcome and enjoy!
