Studio Calico - Project Life Kit ♥♥

Can't wait to receive this baby!!!  I joined as soon as I heard Studio Calico was having a Project Life kit.  I was one of the lucky ones to make it into the first group to receive it.

The countdown begins......Project Life 2013.....HERE I COME!!!

Check out all the beautiful pieces this kit includes:

The designers over a Studio Calico have really done a great job showcasing this kit.

As usual, I will be posting my pages on my Instagram (Teriberi2).  I hope to have a few minutes every week to upload them to my blog as well.

I will also make a video showing this kit as soon as it's in my little hands :)

Chit chat soon!!

Hugs, T

*** Here are pictures of the Block Party Printables available for purchase over at Studio Calico.  I imported them into Silhouette, traced the images and added cut lines to use them as Print and Cuts on my Silhouette.  I can now start my 2013 Project Life Album while I wait for my kit.  YAY I'M SO HAPPY!!!!

This morning I received this email:

It's confirming my subscription to the Studio Calico Project Life Monthly Kit which I had subscribed to back on October 30th.   I'm so super excited about this.  Can't wait to continue my Project Life journey in 2013. 

I've decided not to go through with my 2012 December Daily project and instead have captured the moments right in my Project Life.  I'm so happy with my decision.  In just a couple weeks, my family and I will have two complete albums of memories from 2012. 

Although I original started off as a typical 12x12 layout scrapbooker, Project Life has really opened the doors to more personal and in the moment memories.  It's the small things in life, that will probably not be vividly remembered, that make a different in these albums.

I want to take this time to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!!

We are leaving on a mini family vaction and will be disconnecting for a few days.

Hugs and blessings to all!!!

YAY!!  I'm so super excited.   This week has been crazy at work and hectic at home BUT, I manged to squeeze in some time to create our family Christmas cards using one of the freebies Becky Higgins offered on her blog about a week ago!!!  They are ALL beautiful but our picture fit perfectly into this design ♥♥♥:

The only thing I added was the "2012" using Photoshop Elements.

The family photo was taken at my nephews baptism last weekend in front of the church.  It was the perfect occasion to take it since we were all dressed nice.  (OMG do you see my kids.....they are almost my height AND I'm wearing heels yikes!!!!)  Anywho, you can find the freebies HERE

I ordered my prints from Persnickety Prints.    Their customer service is AMAZING and shipping is extremely fast!! 

December 1st is know what that means......DECEMBER DAILY TIME!!!!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
Hugs and blessings,

When the kids started school in August, we all prepared for an extremely hard year.  Kasi would start her IB program in 6th grade, which includes ALL Advanced courses, and Damian would start his ALL day Gifted program in 5th grade.  It has been quite an adventure so far....projects, reports, trips to the library and lots and lots of studying but in the end, it has paid off the first nine weeks.  We are such proud parents!!!  Both Kasi and Damian made the Honor Roll - wooooo hooooo!!!!  It's difficult enough to make the Honor Roll let alone making it in advanced and gifted courses.  We are flabergasted!!!!!

Since Kasi is in Middle school, she no longer receives certificates, but here is a picture of Damian....ALL SMILES!!!!

This weekend we will be taking a little break from school to decorate our home.  Hubby and I have taken the boxes down from the attic and we have positioned the tree where it will go.  Last night Kasi and I strung the lights while the boys studied math.  Here is a picture of my Kasi acting silly with the tree skirt lol:

After the boys did their math thing, they started creating paracord bracelets.  Hubby had seen these and wanted one so he checked out YouTube and learned how to make them.  They created father/son matching bracelets...they are so cute!!!  You see....even hubby is creative lol

Lastly, this past weekend was my nephews baptism.  What a special occasion!!!  The keepsake my sister-in-love chose for each family was this gorgeous cross ornament....LOVE the idea!!!  I just HAD to add it to the tree this morning ♥♥

I am so blessed to have the family I have.  We have our ups and downs, but in the end, we are family!! 

Hope you all have a spectacular day!!

Hugs, T

Project Life 2013!!!

Thanks to the Black Friday sale over at Amazon, I finally picked up these two white Signature Album from Becky Higgins.  I want my 2013 albums to have a crisp clean look.

I've already added 26, Design A page protectors to each album.  Design A is my FAVORITE!!!  I also joined the Studio Calico, Monthly Project Life Kit club and I'm super excited to start receiving it in January.  I will be adding Becky's freebies to the spine as I did for my 2012 albums.  Love the freebies becky has to offer on her blog.... you can find them HERE.  I created my 2012 Christmas cards using one of the new templates and thanks to Persnickety Prints, I placed my order and will be mailing them to family and close friends next week.  I will also post a picture of it on my blog in the next couple days ♥♥

As usual, I will be posting periodic videos on my YouTube channel with Project Life updates. 

December is right around the corner and I'm so looking forward to be spending lots of quality time with my hubby and kids, my parents, my father in law, my brothers and sisters, my brother and sisters in love and my neices and nephews.  It's such a blessing to have each and every one of them in my life.

Hugs and blessings to all,

Wanted to share a couple things with my blog friends.....

First I just pre-ordered my 2013 desktop calendar from ECdesign on Etsy!!  YAY I'm super excited!!  This is the third year I purchase it and the designs are just adorable.  This year, the calendar helped me so much in organizing my Project Life album.  I wrote the Week # off to the side of each week and while crafting, I had it on my desk to refer back to the exact dates and weeks.  For my 2013 album, I plan on incorporating each month into my album.  They measure 4x6 so it will fit perfectly into the sleeves!!!  You can pre-order them HERE!!!   This is a picture of all the designs:

Elizabeth also has email stationery which can be found HERE.  Her graphic designs are just amazing.  For being one of the first five people to order her new 2013 desktop calendar, I won this special email stationery.  Can't wait to start using it.  This is the pattern I picked....I LOVE IT!!!!!

You can personalize it.  Mine says:  From: Teri Beri and at the bottom it has my blog information.

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, T

Every year, my sister Cristy and her family have a Halloween party.  They decorate their home and have lots of friends and family come over. 

Everyone starts arriving around 7pm and the moms take the kids Trick-or-Treating around 8pm while the dads hang out at home.  It's always a huge group and the kids have a blast collecting candy.  After that, we have pizza, cupcakes and enjoy each others company.

This year Damian was an FBI Agent (Oh so handsome - hee hee) and Kasi was an 80's girl....this TOTALLY brought back some AWESOME memories ♥♥

Here are some pictures.

Hope you all have a fabulous week!!  LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Hugs and blessings, T

(PS: I'll be back soon with Project Life updates - YAY!!)

Kasi and her Tia Julie ♥♥  (The 80's ruled!!!)

Today is a sad day.....

Two years ago today, I lost an amazing, beautiful friend, to Breast Cancer.   Mabel was a WONDERFUL mother to three handsome boys....they were her life.    She was the assistant to the Chief of Police at the Sweetwater Police Department.  Everywhere she went, she made people laugh.

I remember the night of her funeral, her middle son, Bryan, told Bernie and I that he was going to join the police academy to become a police officer for the department his mother worked for.  He did just that.  His mother would have been so proud of him.

Last night I found out he passed away on Sunday in a motorcycle accident.  He was only 22.  The news devastated us.  I could not stop crying.   My prayers are with his two brothers and their family.  Heaven gained another angel.  You will be missed Bryan.

His burial is today.....exactly two years (to the date) of his mom's passing.
I miss you my friend.

Hugs, T

Amazing weekend!!

Participating in the Susan G. Komen 5K Race for a Cure was such an incredible experience!!!!

My beautiful niece Jessica spent the night with us on Friday.    We all woke up at 6am Saturday morning.  Damian had to be at the park at 7am for his 8am baseball game and the girls and I had to be in downtown Miami at 7:30am for the race, which started at 8am.

When I signed us up for this event, I made myself a goal to raise $100 for the cause.  I sent out a few emails and posted it on my Facebook page.  Within 30 minutes, I had met my goal.  My beautiful sister REGINA EASTER made the entire donation.  THANK YOU SO MUCH SIS!!!  I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!!!  It is a true blessing to have you in my life.

Now I leave you with some pictures from the event.  I had such a wonderful day with my BFF Tery and her family.  Spending the morning with them was priceless!!!!

Hugs, T

6:30 the car and on the way - woooooo hooooooo!!


Kasi and Jessica (my girls ♥)       Me, Kasi, Tery, Teresa and MAX!!!

Max was having so much fun clapping and dancing :)

I'm sooooo looking forward to all my upcoming weekends this month!!!

This Sunday, we will be celebrating my Grami's 95th BIRTHDAY!!  Woooooo hooooo God bless her soul ♥♥  She is the cutest thing every....take a look:

.....she is mushable and she laughs sooooo cute!!!  I LOVE my Grami so much.  During the summer the kids and I visited her so many times.  She was so happy ♥♥!!!

Then the following weekend my daughter will be doing the second part of her community hours which are part of her IB Program requirements.  This past Sunday she completed 4 hours at PetSmart (good thing she didn't come home with another dog although she confessed to me she really wanted to lol).   On October 20th, we will be attending the Susan G. Komen / Breast Cancer 5K walk in Downtown Miami woooooooo hooooooo!!   My fabulous niece Jessica, will be joining us BFF told me she and her family will be attending!!! YAY...her baby is so cute.  We are so excited for this awesome day.......spent with SPECIAL PEOPLE for a SPECIAL CAUSE!!!  Can't get better than that can it?

This is a very meaningful event for my daughter.    As most of my followers already know, she grows her hair to donate it for cancer patients. She is currently growing it to danate it for the FIFTH TIME!!!!! We will be doing this walk in memory of a great friend which we lost to Breast Cancer 3 years ago this month.

Last night we got matching shirts and Kasi even got socks.  She will also be wearing a beautiful pink scarf my friend Mabel made her a few months before she passed away.  I will NEVER forget the day she gave it to her.....She took off her hat and told Kasi, "Baby, this is what happens to cancer patients that undergo Chemotherapy.  Because of your love and dedication, we can have wigs.  This scarf I knitted especially for you to say THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for making a difference and for always helping those in need.  God Bless you!!!"  (I can hear her saying it as I type it :'(  it was a very touching moment for our family.  We will never forget her.

Here is my baby girl.  We are so proud of her and I'm sure my friend would be too! 

Our family will always support this cause.  Here is my son with his pink wristbands which he will wear to every baseball game this month.  His Tia Julie got them for him and he was so happy.  She actually got it for her two baseball players as well.  (Baseball is BIG in our family!!!  Most of the boys play this amazing sport!!!)

Then the last weekend of this month is my nephews Baptism.  What a special moment.  I can't wait to spend time with my entire family.  LIFE IS GOOD!!!!!  Look how big Andrew has gotten.  We went to visit him the other day and all he did was smile.  He even fell asleep in my arms that night aaawwwww.  I ♥ him so much...and Austin too of course.  Here are some pictures:


Finally, October 31 we are all getting together at my sisters house for some pizza and fun activities with the kids.  YAY!!!

Can't wait to document this month in my Project's going to be so very special.

Hope everyone has a super fabulous week and I'll be back soon with some new PL updates.

Hugs to all!!!!

Just a small update :)

I'm here :)   My blog has been down for a few days because I was trying out different setting but I ended up with the simple/clean look which I ♥.

It's been a very trying few months of September 5th,  I feel as if a huge load of darkness has lifted from my shoulders and I feel AMAZING and most importantly very peaceful!!!  I thank God for my husband/best friend.  Our conversations always make me feel so much better.  He listens to me without interruption and at the end, he talks to me and makes me feel so good about my decisions.  I ♥ that man!!

So I came across this photo on Instagram:  (I ♥♥♥ Instagram!!!)

and you know what.....IT'S SO TRUE!!!!!  I have learned so much the last 3 years of my life.  I'll just leave it at that lol

I've been working on Project Life and will be sharing a couple layouts and PL weeks with you shortly.

Now that school has started life is hectic.  With my son in the all day gifted program (WOOT WOOT!!!) and my daughter in the IB Program (WOOT WOOT!!!), there are tons of things going on at home not to mention....BASEBALL 4 times a week!!!  We spend one or two days a week at the library for study time and we have friends come over for study time and projects.  It's been great but very very busy.

Before I go, I wanted to quickly thank all my amazing friends and family for understanding that I HAVE A LIFE!!  Not only am I a full time paralegal with a tons of responsibilities at work, I'm also a full time mom and wife.  My play time, phone time and blog time is extremely limited.  I am grateful for the REAL people in my life that understand that once I'm home, my family is my #1 priority!!    I LOVE YOU GUYS WITH ALL MY HEART!!!

Big hugs to all,
