Mother’s Day…

As Mother’s Day is coming to an end, I can’t help but feel such emptiness in my heart. My first Mother’s Day without Tyson. People may say he was just a dog, but to me he was my baby. Like most moms I was there when he started dog obedience school. When he got and ear infection I had to make sure he took his antibiotics. When he had the stomach flu and he refused to eat out of his bowl, I hand fed him to make sure he ate. I like most moms rushed him to the hospital when his face started swelling because he was stung by a bee and he was allergic. I would cry like a baby when he would get his shots, the sad look in his eyes wondering why I let the vet poke him. Then there was the time he had a growth on his elbow. When the vet told me he had to do a biopsy because it could be cancer. CANCER? I wanted to fall to the floor and cry my eyes out. How could this be? I waited 3 days to get the results. The 3 longest days of my life. Then the vet called and told me my little guy was okay.

Oh Tyson I miss you so much. I Love you baby guy and the only comfort I have on days like this. Is knowing you’re with my dad now. Biting his ear and him playing with yours. Sitting right by him like you always did. Mom Loves you baby guy. Thank you for Loving me unconditionally.

Tyson Tuesday…

Yesterday beat me up. At one point I wondered how I was going to get past the day and come out okay. Then I saw these pictures of Tyson.

No matter what was going on and I truly mean this when I say it. Tyson would always make me happy.

Thank you baby guy for Loving your mom as much as you did. I miss you baby and I Love you.

Happy Tyson Tuesday.

Grateful…

I heard on morning radio the other day something about being grateful. I didn’t quite catch the whole story because I had to shut the radio off. I guess the whole point was to write down 3 things you’re grateful for everyday. Again, I didn’t catch the whole segment. But if you do it daily for 21 days, your mind will get in the habit of being grateful all the time. I’m grateful everyday for everything but I thought this would be something good to document here. And how perfect is it to start in the 1st of the month. Here are my 3 things/people I’m grateful for.

1. Tyson!

2. The Sister

3. The Mom

Happy August.

If you’re reading this, what 3 things/people are you grateful for?

Tyson Tuesday…

Happy Tyson Tuesday.

It’s hard to believe my baby boy is going to be 15 in September. I feel like just yesterday be was a puppy dog.

He’s lost his hearing, he doesn’t move as fast and he isn’t as active as he used to be, but he is still that sweet puppy dog he’s always been. always giving kisses and always so loving. Before I start crying. I’ll leave you with these pictures I posted on International Dog Day.

I love you puppy dog.

Happy New Year…

While others were out with friends and family welcoming 2018. I was in bed way before midnight lol. I woke up sick yesterday. I hope that isn’t an indication of how my year is going to be. But I hope this post is an indication of how my blogging goal this year is going to be.

Happy New Year.

And Happy Tyson Tuesday!!!

Hi Dani Girl! Thanks for reading my blog <3

Feliz Birthday…

Is this thing on?!?!?!

Once again I told myself over and over to keep up with this thing lol. I haven’t and yes I’m ashamed of myself.

Today I am celebrating my birthday so I thought I would post about it. My birthday was almost 2 weeks ago, but today I am celebrating what I consider my 4th birthday. It’s the anniversary of the day I almost left my body. Not too many people know what that means or what happened to me. So it’s probably a little confusing to you. Without going into too much detail and turning this into a 6 mile post. I don’t even know how to say this without it sounding so dramatic. BUT I almost died 4 years ago. That’s as much as I’m going to say because it’s still hard for me to talk about.

I’ve never been one to celebrate my birthday. It’s just not one of those things that isn’t important. I don’t even tell people it’s my birthday. This year for some reason I didn’t feel the same. I decided to decorate my own desk at work. Then I said I wasn’t going to because my coworkers would laugh at me. I asked my niece if it was a dumb idea to decorate for myself. She quickly replied with “Tia, there is nothing wrong with celebrating yourself” She is right! So for my real birthday a couple of weeks ago, I bought myself some balloons and I made myself a birthday banner.

Best thing about celebrating another birthday today, was a little visit from this precious girl. Thanks for brining her Dana <3

Itzel had a half birthday a few days ago. I made her crown and banner.

I keep posting the banner on Instagram lol. I’m so proud of it.

Aside from banners, I’ve been making so many paper flowers. At one point my living room was a flower shop lol.

Happy Tyson Tuesday by the way.

If you’re still reading this. Thank you!

Have a great evening and thanks for stoping by.

YOYO

Bonnet and apron…

Dear Angie, 

Thank you for asking me to make your bonnet and apron. I loved making them for you and it makes my heart happy that you love them.

<3 YOYO
I’ve enjoyed making everything all month for National Craft Month, but this is probably my favorite thing I’ve made so far. 

Angie’s mom Maricela asked me for help making this for Angie, I’m always excited to help kids with school projects. 

I had never made this style of bonnet before. So this was fun.


I’ve made a lot of half aprons before so this went by super fast. It’s a little bit or a lot wrinkled because this muslin just wasn’t cooperating with me.


How cute does Angie look.

Look A.


Look B.


Look C.


I think she’s going with A!!!

A huge thanks to all of you that have been following my blog all month long.

Happy Tyson Tuesday.

Baby shower decorations…

I worked on baby shower decorations today. 

But before I go any further. Happy Tyson Tuesday.


My handsome baby <3

I am enjoying making these decorations so much.

The baby shower theme is elephants. 


I’m using different shades of both purple and grey.

I stitched the circles together.


Then added the elephants.




I am super excited and I can’t wait to show you the entire wall.

Thanks to those of you that have been taking your time to stop by and see what I’m up to. I appreciate you <3
