Gran Ventana Beach Resort


Hello friends! I hope that your Holiday weekend was filled 
with lots of Love, Warmth & Happiness.


We had a blessed Christmas.
We had a wonderful opportunity this year to spend
our Christmas weekend with my family at the 
Gran Ventana Beach Resort, in the Dominican Republic. 
I had a wonderful time and my son absolutely loved it!


The Gran Ventana offers a distinctive blend of sophisticated design 
with the charm and hospitality of the Dominican Republic. 


It was an all inclusive stay! 
Beaches, pools, shows, activities and so much more.


The resort's lobby extends with beamed ceilings, a huge cast iron chandelier and a 
view of the ocean as its centerpiece.





The water was crystal clear, blue and just beautiful.
We loved it!


Hope that you enjoyed!  Thank you for stopping by
and enjoy the rest of your Holiday!

Handmade Christmas Home 2011

Welcome to our home!

I've kept the decor simple.
Foyer mirror decorated with a simple branch and ornaments.
This is faux snow made from cotton balls and it hangs behind our Christmas tree for a snow fall effect.
My son got a kick out of making these.
Handmade cones with glitter!
Just rolled paper, glued it and added sparkle.
The work of my little one.
His letter block fort.
I kept the mantel very simple this year with only a few handmade items and candles.

Here's wishing you a Merry Christmas & Happy Holiday Season!

Christmas Eggnog


This one is good for everyone, it may be enjoyed by kids
(omit the rum) and adults; it's the perfect beverage to
keep around during the Holidays.
This is a classic, "super sweet" Holiday drink
in the Caribbean and I got the recipe from my Mother-in-Law.
It's like an eggnog, but it's really a coconut-nog:-)
Did I mention super sweet?
I don't like eggnog, but this drink is yummy.
There are several variations, but this is my favorite.

If you would like to give it a try, here is the recipe:


  • 2-3 eggs yolks
  • 1 can of cream of coconut (preferably Coco Lopez)
  • 1 can Carnation Milk- (You may substitute with your milk preference)
  • 1 can Condensed Milk- may use half the can, if you do not want it too sweet.
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional : 1/2 cup of Rum (Barcardi works well - dark or light) 
Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix.
Pour into a large bottle or container with a tight lid.
You may chill it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving
or pour in glass with ice cubes and serve.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top or use a cinnamon stick for garnish.


Enjoy!

Add Glitter to Letters

Add Glitter to Letters

Do you remember last year's little garland project
Well today I decided to give my letter garland a makeover.


I was thinking of adding white or silver glitter, but since I had already painted the letters red, 
I decided to go with red glitter instead.


It was simple, all I did was paint over the letters with mod podge...


Then I quickly added the glitter. You may use Elmer's glue.
Tip:Make sure to place newspaper under your working area 
to avoid making a mess.


The kids will enjoy this one!
Happy Crafting!
