Happy Day of The Dead for those of you honoring loved ones who have passed.
I am honoring my Grandmother, Guillermina Martinez Hernandez, who passed last year.
A post on that later this week.
My day will be spent figuring out how to get to my daughter in the Bronx whom I haven't seen in 5 days due to bridge and tunnel closings during Hurricane Sandy.
We fared well through a historic storm and even though the recovery will be long, things could have been much worst.
I was reminded more than once than once this week, that scrapbooking is first and foremost a way to tell your family history.
Here's my take on the November True Xoxo Girls Facebook Time Line Sketch
|For the True Xoxo Girls November Challenge: Facebook timeline sketch. Please swing by and join the fun.|
Materials: American Crafts Ready, Set Go papers, Doll Thickers , Hambly circle transparency, Basic Grey alphas, My Mind's Eye journaling stickers and Maya Road star pin.
|Doesn't this look like a killer challenge? I think you should try it!|
Things got really scary when the electric plant across the river exploded and lit everything up in eerie shades of blue.
Then the whole east side of Manhattan went black. Only the Empire State Building still shone.
|Just some of my thoughts.|
The water receded and when morning came, our neighborhood was fine.
Thank you Mom Teresa and Mom Reyna for being so AMAZING during the storm- you two are the parenting examples I know.
Thank you Dave for being strong and smart when I was freaking out.
Thank you New York City.
We will get through this and the next one too.

the board walk. Never seen anything like it.
