I'm one of thoseI always told myself, I would never be one of those that disappear from deviantART without saying a word. I was a mom already, with tons of projects but I still could manage being an decent CV and bringing the community fun events (I hope?). It turns out that I'm a huge hypocrite. I became what I didn't want to become. Sure, I could blame the fact that I now have 2 children that depend on me or that I've been working more and more for my business but the truth is that I feel like an impostor. I lost interest in creating art. I start projects in my head but never follow through. I haven't even posted on my recipe blog in 3 months.
My favorite memories of being on dA is being a CV and creating events and articles. The Community is what I've always loved most, it's what made me want to become a Volunteer in the first place. So why did I disappear? I'm not sure. Does this journal mean I will come back and dedicate more time to the community as a member? I don't know... I feel li
Architectural ModelsAs a previous CV and as an Artisan Crafts enthusiastic in general, I feel that the Architectural Models sub-category of Artisan Crafts is often left out of the spotlight. Mainly, I think because it is not nearly as popular as say jewelry making or knitting.
I've always had a respect for architectural models, my first room mate had a huge city model that he built from scratch, he kept removing buildings and replacing them with new ones all the time. I could sit there on the floor of his room, watching him build and destroy for hours while we conversed about anything at all, it was therapeutic somehow.
Oh man, my life...First of all thanks for all the birthday wishes
I spent my birthday and most of last week in a hospital with my newborn. I can easily say it was the most stressful and worst time of my life. He caught a nasty virus and had to be hospitalized and put on oxygen. Other nasty tests and interventions were done to him to rule out any infections and keep his breathing under control. He got RSV and bronchiolitis so we were put into isolation with 2 other children that had the same virus. After 5 days (on my birthday) we got to go home. Félix is doing much better but we're not out of the woods just yet, he still have a nasty cough but it's getting better.
Sorry I can't and won't respond to messages and notes for a while. Hope you understand.
That white thing in Felix's mouth is a soother btw, not some horrible medical contraption, lol.
I've been busy..Hello beautiful deviants,
I miss you a lot. I wish I could be more active and reply in a timely manner to the billions of notes/messages that I received in response to my latest DD. I have about 792+ messages, notes and deviations in my message center to read.
The truth is, I log in for about 5 minutes everyday and end up having to get up again. It's hard to catch up. But I'm still here and don't plan on leaving!
I blame this adorable little guy
Can you see the cute little penguin next to him? Brookette lovingly made it for him.
Also something wonderful happened; I've been awarded my very own pair of wings!

New projectHey guys,
remember how I wanted to get back into jewellery making but being a Mom with a 3 week old is kind of hard. I've been working on this line for a little while. I'm still in the testing phase.

You can expect to hear more about that soon. Here's a preview of what's to come.
Farewell to the old and Hello to the new year2013 has been a very crazy year for me and my family. So much has happened but here are the highlights:
Right before the year began I became a CV for Artisan Crafts and was lucky enough to work side by side with Talty In February, I learned that I had PCOS. When it was announced to me, I was told that it was a miracle that I had gotten pregnant with Loïc in the first place and that there was no cure.Winter was rough for my family. My little Loïc got sick a lot.In April, drama happened and ties with long term friends were broken.A few days later, I learned I was 7 weeks pregnant! In your face PCOS! In May, cakecrumbs joined the AC CV team In July, my husband cut his finger and needed stitches. Also, we purchased our first home and had an ultrasound to that showed I was e
Felix Navidad, a prince is bornOn December 21st at 22:43, my little Félix was born after 4 hours and 30 minutes of labour. He weighed a massive 9lbs 11oz and measures 22 inches.
The labour went well but I'm really exhausted so I hope you understand if I take my time in answering comments and notes
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas

Read my detailed guidelines here
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
