My name is Milagros C. Rivera I live in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I am the mom of a 15 year old son and a soon to be 7 daughter, (July the 3rd as she constantly reminds me on her special countdown). I have being married to my soul mate for 16 years. We also have a menagerie of pets, 2 guinea pigs, 1 hamster, 3 dogs and 1 cat all happily living with us. When my daughter was born I stayed home and 2 years after decided to open a Scrapbook store to channel my creativity and be able to be a full time mom while working. Ha talk about juggling That has given my daughter the opportunity of having her own honey bee scissor in her hands since she was 2! She has been with me all those years and when she started school the space felt terribly empty without her. So now I teach a group of little girls from 4 to 9 every Thursday after school. Besides having my camera with me all the time I enjoy my orchids and my baking, I am planning to start my own veggie patch.
I starterd scrapbooking when my son was born 15 years ago, there was nothing ,so his first albums are filled with hand illustrations done by me and tons of calligraphy. I remember browsing through my grandma's big scrapbooks and I knew I had to do the same for him. I stopped and when my daughter was born, boy had the scrap world had changed. I loved every second of getting inmersed in pattern papers and flowers, I still do!
I continue to scrapbook first of all because it gives me pleasure and is the perfect artsy outlet for my creativity. Then because I love seeing my kids and family go through my pages and seeing the changes year after year, sometimes even a month of change brings a big difference. For instance this week my daughter lost her 2 front teeth and now she looks so grown up...
I joke about the style, really, one time one of my friends saw a beach LO of my daughter and said it was "girly, vintage, artsy, beachy styled". I guess I created a new style! Soooo it changes and evolves, but I guess layering and sewing are almost always present in some form. I love to experiment.
A fact not known by most, my blogger avatar is me and dad when I was one! And this is my first DT!!!!!
