Fall in Love

This fall is not like the others.  I've been calling myself a "summer person" my whole life.  When the first signs of fall arrived, i used to get very moody, feel "blue" and sad.  It's like i had to put my life on hold until the trees turned green again.  This fall's been different.  For the first time, i feel like it's the beginning of something rather than the end.  i feel re-energized, optimistic and i've felt my creative energy getting stronger.  i don't know (yet) why this one's different than the others.  But it feels peaceful, colorful and good.  We went for a walk at a nearby park yesterday and took this photos (pardon my fashion style) which hopefully show they way i feel.  Walking through the rows of trees shedding their leaves, following nature's perfect path, we felt we were also following our own path.  Not knowing where it would lead us, but confident that we'll be fine.


The Highline

Hi all. I created these collages and wanted to share them with you. The photos are from my first visit to the HighLine in New York. The High Line is an urban park created on abandoned freight train tracks. I loved this park It's so New York and I love the mix of vegetation and the roughness of the tracks. I invited my girlfriends to come and they loved it. It's truly a great response to what could've been sees as an eyesore or a problem.
Hope you enjoy the photos.
Thanks for visiting!

Friday Fun

I'm about to go home and really can't wait for the weekend to start! This is going to be a special one because we'll be celebrating my super sweet friend Viviana's bachelorette party! Can't give you too many details because it's a surprise and she actually reads my blog (thanks Vivi!!!).  But I'm sure she's going to love it and that I'll be taking lots of pics to scrap (as soon as I start printing them....so much to do, so little time!).
Wanted to wish you all a wonderful weekend and yes, Summer's gone but let's welcome the Fall by being open to new possibilities, new adventures and lovely jackets and scarfs!

Love ya -


Scrapbooking Class

 I'm currently taking the Scrapbook 101 Class at PortraitBug in NYC and I'm learning soooo much.  My teacher is none other than the very talented Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.  An artist I admire greatly.  She wrote a very nice post about her teaching experience and she posted a photo of me and my fellow classmate! I was so excited to see it there.  If you have a chance, visit her blog and take a look at her work.  I promise it'll be of great inspiration!
