Getting back to what created this Blog…and feeling Liberated and most of all Grateful.

Now that I put all that Drama past me, I feel liberated and Grateful.I can create and go back to the reason why I created this Blog in the first place. To create Art, to talk about what I love the most: MY FAMILY and to show the  treasures (Life and Thrift) I find along the way.

 When I was a little girl, my Mother had a friend that loved putting pretty package together . Nothing crazy, just simple. She would use buttons, scraps, ribbons and ephemera.. I would never want to open it because I didn’t want to ruin the beautiful presentation. I remember thinking, its all about the giving and presentation. Unless I am in a hurry, I usually try to wrap a gift a certain way. I thank her for making me pay attention to detail. Thank you Mrs. Ruben.

I started scrap-booking 7 years ago when my Daughter was born. If it wasn’t for a great on-line community like Two Peas in a bucket and all the Scrapbook Artists I would have never been so interested in Paper Arts like I am now. Thank you Two Peas and those amazing Scrapbook Artists that inspire me!

If it wasn’t for my Family.. I wouldn’t have a reason to want to create all of those Scrapbooks, Art Journals and those silly books I like to create. Thank you Sweet Family.

If it wasn’t for Those amazing Art/Stamp/Scrapbook Stores and the beautiful ladies that own them, I would have never had the opportunity to Teach my crazy Art (Art family cannot understand).. Thank you Ladies from Frenzy Stamper, Stampotique, Mystic Paper, Paper Tales .

Also my On line Art friends that inspire me, do Art with me and love to Swap with me…… you  make it all so fun . Thank you! And to my Etsy customers… Thank you for your business… I am grateful. Really.

I wanted to share a couple of Valentines Art I have done.. Here  is one for my Living room and one that hangs in my Daughters room:

  I also made a banner.. I am having a little Valentine Art making party at my House and this is my Project to teach.

  I also wanted to share what Darianne made.. a picture with Hearts Andy Warhol style.. Love it!


Thank you again for coming back, not just for the Drama and for your support!-hugs Lilia

    What is that ol’ saying? “Save the drama for your momma” and it is so true!! Anywhoo, I just bought your darling kit with the lil red soda pop cap in it and I JUST LUV IT!!! I just wanted to tell you. I took a class with you at one of Kim’s artistic affairs.
    Will you have anymore of the XO kits for sale on your etsy, since you are having classes at your house?

    Hi Lilia. It’s been awhile since I visited your blog. So much eye candy! I took your class before you left Phoenix. Pink has crept into my reportoire ever since. Thank you for the inspiration. I love Darianne’s take on Warhol. The wheels are in motion in my head as to how I can translate it into a project for my students.
