Fall is here!

My favorite weather season is definitely Summer but I LOVE Fall! I'm looking forward to Halloween, pumpkin pie with my sweetie, that early morning chill and I can't wait for gorgeous October moons. I've been awol from my blog and my etsy shop due to crazy hectic non stop studying! With hardly any available time I really cannot handle any more orders than the ones I'm currently working on. I did manage to start a little something for our home! Yes I never get to craft much for our home but this year I'm starting very early and slowly working on a few Halloween items like a banner, a door hanger and a few decorations here and there. At least we can have something festive to look at while we study! I got a sweet message this morning from Jenn over at BrideFinds an awesome site with lots and lots of ideas for future brides. They feature great finds from Etsy sellers and focus on unique handmade items for ceremony and reception. I've been lucky to be included on their great finds for a Halloween Themed Wedding! My eerie silhouette cupcake toppers are featured among many awesome items that are cleverly chosen for a wonderful and elegant event as a wedding!

New inspirations for the weekend

Wanted to share a new collection that I'm just in love with! If you haven't heard of Designers Guild - you must! An amazing collection of colorful and elegant items for your home. Their color combinations for wallpaper, furniture, bedroom linen and accessories are breathtaking. I can live in just one of those rooms and be completely in heaven! I've been shopping around for cool wallpaper that'll go on our closet and these just blow my mind!! I would want them all over my house and not hiding in the back of my clothes but still...I love them :-)

Never Forgotten

This morning was not a typical ride in to work. I woke up on time at 5am as I do every Friday morning. I did snooze for about another 10 more minutes before I got up, got dressed and out the door. As soon as I get in my car I set the radio to AM for my daily dose of news. A few miles down the 91 fwy I found myself in tears as I heard the news team reliving the most horrible day of our lives a decade ago. They put together a clip about 5 minutes long that took me back to that early Tuesday morning in 2001when all of our lives changed for ever. It's too hard to even try to type the memories and emotions I felt that day. Glued to the TV and seeing what it seemed like the most horrific movie turned into reality was devastating for me, close friends and family.

A whole decade has passed and 9/11 will always be engraved in my mind. My love and respect to all my fellow EMT's and Firefighters that gave their lives that day will never be lost. This weekend along with lots of studying and things to do Jorge and I will take the time to remember that day and look forward to the new WTC. The renovation videos look incredible and I'm so eager to see a new Manhattan.
