Tear Jerker Alert!!

I rented this movie last weekend, and LOVED it!  I didn't know what I was expecting, but the actors that were in the movie are awesome, so I said Hello Redbox give me:  Mother and Child.  

This movie was written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia in 2009.  The cast consists of Annette Bening, Samuel L Jackson, Naomi Watts, and Kerry Washington.

Annette plays a 50 year old woman traumatized by the loss of her only child.  Naomi plays a driven lawyer, who doesn't attach any of her feelings to any human being, to keep her from connecting from her past trauma, and Kerry plays a woman who cannot conceive, and is planning to adopt.

Not too happy about the ending, but let's just say I cried for about 20 minutes!

*****5 stars baby!

Crafty with Christmas cards!!

I know it has been a while since I have been blogging, and I truly miss it!  Unfortunately, I have been working, and just tired by the time I get home to even put my full attention into something. 

So here is something I have been working on for the holiday, and the cards have been sent to family and friends, and I have heard some great feedback too!  

I went to Michael's craft store, and stocked up on a bunch of goodies to create these masterpieces! lol

I purchased a book of paper that had multiple prints, ribbons, and extra trimmings.  Bought a 50 pack of ivory cards that came with envelopes and used them as the base of the card.  Than glued the printed paper to it, and decorated.

Quite easy, and it was nice to get my crafty side going again!

Enjoy the pics!  This is only the beginning.  Next year I have to get even better! ha!  

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
