This is the time of year when I like to start making changes on my life.
I like to re-organized things, and make new decisions. I have wanting to take yoga, pilates or zumba classes for a very long time, and of course I always find a very nice excuse not to do it, and then another year goes by.
Last Monday I went to the Gym and took a Zumba class, OMG!!!!! What a class ladies!
I started thinking it was going to be easy, pssh this is nothing, I thought….after 15 minutes into the class and I was OMG! I need a break, where is my water!!!!!! I am so hot, wauuu I am sweating… after 55 minutes I was Happy, and destroyed!
I think Zumba is a really happy class, music, movements, you laugh a lot, you feel your energy levels rising really quick, but you also feel your body working really good, you work almost every part of your body dancing!!
 Well, when I got home I had a talk with my husband and told him that I wanted to join the Chinn Center Gym, he said “go ahead if it makes you feel good, do it!”. He is my sunshine! So, on Wednesday I become a member for a month! That same day, I took another Zumba Class and yesterday I went to do my YOGA!
I feel great, happy from inside out! Zumba gives me energy and my body works really hard to keep up with the flowing of the class, Yoga gives me peace, calm, balance, harmony, and my body works hard too!
Next week I am going to try Pilates! And if I like I will do the three classes alternatively.
So this is me today happy as a clown!
Today I am thinking about going to a Zumba class and then to the sauna to get detox!
I am loving my life, my family, my friends, my dogs and myself.
Saturday I have a Surprise Birthday party for my friend Vale, she turned 30 years old on Tuesday, so this Saturday her family and us are going to through her a surprise B-Day party!
Sunday Relax DAY!!!!
Hugs to all my readers and have a great weekend!!!!!

Mom loves me, i love my mom

I while ago a told you that when I got to Argentina  this last time my husband managed to record a little video of my mom and me, well here it is! This is one of my favorite videos ever, everytime I watch it my eyes get all watery and my heart gets super hipper happy! My mom is the one on white, she is waiting for me at the Airport in Buenos Aires, It's been a year since last time I visited her, and she didn't know I was coming to the back, the one in black is my aunt.
I hope you can feel the love that only a mom can give to a daughter, I love her with all my heart!

The pictures

Today is all about the pending pictures that I've promised for so long. Last night I got to uploaded all my pictures to the computer so I will have plenty of projects to show you.

First I would like to start with some of the yarn that I bought on my last trip to Argentina, I don't know the name of it or what is made of because it doesn't say, but it's extremely soft and fuzzy, love this yarn to knit scarf or something that will go around your neck, or a chunky baby sweater, it is out of this world! I wish you could touch it, I really do! Great scarfs are coming for this winter, would you like one? Let me know with time, because this yarn flies out of my hands!

Well, now I would like to show you some of my latest creations on necklaces. These ones are the ones I've mention on the last two posts. They already sold.
                           This is the Green Necklace set, made of green and yellow  turquoise.
This is one of my favorites,  It's called The Star set. For this set I used 925 silver and semiprecious black gold-stone.

Then I made a colorful necklace with some sort of shell that I brought from Argentina,

                                                             I call this one Chapitas set,

And this is the last set, I called it
                                                                Yellow Jade set

Well, these are some of my latest creations on jewelry, I hope you like them.
I am also working on some other necklaces with real strong colors and special combinations. I will post them when I am done.

If you are interested in any of my jewelry please email me at or leave me a comment.I don't put all I have in my shop.
 For now, I want to say thank you for being there for me, and I hope you have a great happy day!
Thank you for stopping by!

Charity and life

Where to start? mmmm... well I have been busy! Yes that is right, that's the word, busy, but in a good way.
Since my last post I didn't stop moving and making and swimming, and hanging out with friends. I finished all the jewelry, my client loved it!! I was so proud of myself, I like to see when people is happy wearing my creations!

I got to go to the pool a lot these days, and that is my favorite, I love water!!! Did I say that I love water? I must have been a fish in a past life! hahaha

Yesterday I went to the post office to deliver a happy package, I knitted hats to donate to the Hat in the Box Foundation. Then I got hocked and keep looking for more places to donate knitting items! I found a place that seems really cool that it's called Knit-a -square, this organization send the squares to South Africa to Orphan children  with AIDS. So I have package ready to go with crocheted squares and now I am working on a square vest for the same organization I want to knit at least 3 or 4 so I can send them all together otherwise the postage is going to get really expensive. To be honest, the best feeling comes when you give away without waiting for anything in return.

Today I went to Safeway and I saw a propaganda about Diabetes,(as you might know my father is type 1 diabetic, and he has to use insulin every day) it was about a big walked, the "Step Out Walk to fight Diabetes". You know what... I am going to do it! I am going to walked 4 miles for my dad, for the cure to this horrendous disease.. I am going to called him tonight and I ma going to tell him what I am going to do, I can wait to hear what he has to say... he is going to be really happy and he is gonna say, " yes let go find the cure". I have three friends that might joy me. (I am really happy about this!)
Tonight my hubby and I are going to have dinner with two friends, we are going to Maggiano's, it's so yummy! I already know what I am going to have! hahaha I pic at the menu already shhhhh!

Well I have to go, but first I want to say something. I've been reading a lot lately remember that I told you so, for that reason I have a good recommendation to give you guys, there is a book that I am sure that you might have read already, but in case you haven't you MUST read it, it's called
A thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, he is the author who wrote The Kite Runner another excellent book, But this book  is incredible and if you are an independent woman it is going to touch your heart, and is going to make smile, and cry you'll feel like you want to get in the book and help!. One of my favorite books so far.
If anybody has a good book to recommend please let me know, I always like to hear different opinions!

♥♥♥♥Before I forget if you have any baby hats that you don't want or you feel like knitting a baby hat for preemie babies and want to send it to me please let me know I will be more than happy to collect them and take them myself to the Prince William Hospital.♥♥♥♥
Hugs to everybody!
