Hola! soy Arlette, de Costa Rica, Les contaré un poco acerca de mi, me encantan las manualidades, creo que eso fue debido a que mis dos abuelitas las hacían, y como era tan traviesa, fue una forma de mantenerme tranquila. Una de mis abuelitas Isabel, ya cumplió sus 102 años. Estudié Relaciones Públicas, soy soltera, sin hijos. Imaginense que triste sería la vida sin colores..., mis colores favoritos, son los colores tierra, aunque no tengo alguno en especial que me desagrade, a no ser por los colores chillones o fosforecentes, creo que no "soy compatible" con ellos. Muchas gracias por tomarse el tiempo y visitar mi blog, me gustaría tener muchas amigas!!!. I'm Arlette from Costa Rica, I'll tell you a bit about myself, I love to make crafts. I studied Public Relations, I'm single and don't have kids My fave colours are the brown shades, although I don't dislike any. Thank you for stoping by, please leave me a comment that way I'll know you been here and I'd like to have lots of friends!

When I think in my favorite Christmas memories, my sweet grandpa is always there. He always made for his grandkids a homemade gift for each one. We always got some of this: wooden cars ( I know I’m a girl, but he or my parents didn’t matter, and me either), dolls (you can’t imagine how they were), wooden boxes, puzzles, chairs, puppets, etc, he used to put our names and the year he made the craft, none of us "grandkids" have anything from him, but me!. One christmas he changed his mind and he gave to his sons and daughters a cute drawer, (8 total) he painted all of them, then when I saw how cute they were, I asked him to give one to me, I was ready to get a no for response, instead I saw a bright smile in his face and he said sure!, I was really happy, but I'm not afraid to say when he gave the drawer to me, his smile was brighter!, he was really proud of himself, because he made that to me!. I also have a letter from him, and he called me there "daughter", dang!, I don't want to cry, but I'm tearing, lol. Just after that christmas he started to feel really tired and then he got ill.

He was 93 years old, when he passed away, my grandma’s (his widow) with us!, she’s going to turn 101 years old next January!!!. I miss him, terribly, but I’m surely know he’s in the best place right now. He was the best and sweet grandpa I could have!, he'll live forever in my heart. Every christmas I remember him because it was his fave holiday, he used to play and have fun with us, and since he left us I put a candle in his honour, same as the light he put in my life, also I'd like to be busy this holidays working on quilts, I'm sure if he was able to be here, he'll enjoying to make them, with me same as I do enjoy to make them!.

Edit: Sorry for the blurry pic, I'm going to post some pictures later on, in that time we didn't have digital cameras, just paper pictures, lol

    I love your blog. I am especially touched by your love for your grandparents. You told your story so beautifully and I am sure your grandfather is smiling!

    Your quilts are gorgeous, too! Such lovely work. :-)

    I enjoyed your visit to my blog and hearing about the turtles! We have fairly large turtles in a pond in our town. They are wonderful to see - but we don't have to go in a boat to see them as you would have to do there!

    Warmest wishes,
    Crystal :-)
