Expo day 2

Isn't our booth awesome?

Our booth
Well, the judges didn't think so, which means we did not win the best booth category, bummer :(

But you know what they say: "It's not about winning, but about participating..."

We did have a pretty good night though with a big crowd.

We managed to collect about 75 more signatures for our petition to continue the protection law on the Nassau Grouper Spawning sites, and that is just in on the first night.

designated signing area for our petition
Now, today is day 2 and in previous years for this event, the busiest day.

Weather is still crappy and I hope that won't prevent people from coming out and visit the Expo.

Happy Friday and weekend to all!!!

ready, set...

and about ready to go!

Everything is just about set up on our booth for the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.

This will be the first time we participate so we are hoping for a good crowd, with lots of interest in our products and perhaps a few good sales.

Tonight is the official opening with a VIP party and the price for best booth (which we are hoping to win!).

Don't have any pictures to share yet, but hopefully I will catch up on the weekend.

The weather today is dreadful out there, lots of heavy rain, the ocean is very strong with some major surge.

Hopefully these are the last rains we will see during hurricane season, although we still have about a month to go, so can't call it a victory just yet.

Happy Thursday to you, wherever you are reading this today!

stuck but moving forward

When at times we feel as if we are not moving forward or we are just stuck in the same old routine that barely makes us feel alive, we need to keep on going.

Or perhaps we just need to stop for a bit, take a full breath and think about all the small and big blessings that surround us.

It is for us to acknowledge that they’re out there, somewhere. 

Even inside of ourselves.

So, when times are hard, let’s just ask around and see if anybody out there has any spare hugs for us? Or maybe just a friendly hand that we can hold and walk around in good company.


Because no matter if we are in fact moving forward or standing still, a hug or a friendly hand, is full of that “half full” energy that we can all use and share with others to better our daily dealing with life dissapointments.

The scheduled meeting I had yesterday to meet my new “little sister” was unfortunately cancelled, so again, I am not sure when it’s going to happen or if it would ever happen at all.

Like I mentioned a couple of days ago, I started this process more than a year ago, I've been patience and at times I've even had my doubts that it would become possible, now I must wait again because I will be very busy at work starting tomorrow with the CI Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.

So I guess for now, there's nothing else but ask God for patience and perseverance, I know that He is holding my hand while I walk and although I cannot feel Him hugging me, I do feel his love through all the special people in my life and the blessings that surround me.

Have a Wonderful Blessed Wednesday!!!

funny or what?

"If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands... If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands".

But, if you are not happy or perhaps you are but could use a little laugh, make sure to watch the following video, it's sure to at least make you smile.

Wasn't that funny? I hope it made you smile...

Happy Tuesday!

Projects, projects, projects...

Looks like October is a project month for me, got lots going on.

When it comes to my crochet/amigurumi project... Ahhhh, I still remember when I set my mind to learn how to crochet. Got myself some books and with the help of the many, many YouTube videos that show you every possible crochet stitch, I finally managed to learn.

Now, about a year later, I've come to the point where I have more than one project going on at once.

Lately I'm into starting one long one that I can go to for a few minutes/hours and then leave it to perhaps work on a much smaller and faster one.

I've been working pretty hard on another hand bag, but still long ways to go.

Yesterday I finished an amigurumi Panda Bear that I will be giving as a gift to my newly appointed "little sister" from the Big Brothers & Big Sisters mentor program, and whom I am schedule to meet tomorrow evening.

I have to say that I'm super excited to start this new mentor project/program and specially to meet my new "little sister".

She is a 10 year old Caymanian girl, her name is Yannique. Looks like she is a very active girl, who loves sports, the ocean, reading and specially loves animals (she wants to be a Vet- just like I wanted!).

So, I am really looking forward to start this mentor program as it's been more than a year since I started to the whole process and they have finally match me with somebody.

As I said, I am very excited and bit nervous, but praying to God that He gives the strength, inspiration and dedication necessary to make a positive difference in this little girl's life, but also welcoming what my relationship with her will bring to my own life.

So, tomorrow is the BIG meeting day, hoping for everything to go well, will share the news on Wednesday.

Other projects I have going on are for work, today and tomorrow we have 2 more school visits for the Grouper Moon and starting on Wed. our gallery/store is participating on the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce Business Expo for the very first time...

Wednesday is set up day and then we officially start on Thursday [when we are hoping to win the "Best Booth" category] and ends of Saturday afternoon. So, I might not have much time to post but I will try to share a bit of this project in the next few days...

Besides all those projects, I have already started working on my next blog giveaway that hopefully will be ready in the next few weeks. As always it's going to be hand made [by: moi] and very special... so stay tuned!

Have a great Monday and rest of the week! :)
