Decorate To Celebrate! Winner!!

And a  little bit more....

I am…a Colombo Mexican French American language teacher and blogger!!!
This translates into …

Colombian by birth.
I had a very happy and lucky childhood in one of the highest capitals in the Andes, Bogota, and AKA as the “Athens of South America”.

Mexican by adoption.
My adolescence was shaped in one of the largest and always bustling cities in the world, Mexico City.

French by heart and soul.
From kindergarten until my last day of college I was in French educational institutions.
My university years, (with a Masters degree in letters and languages) and some more, were spent in the French Riviera, Nice! And my first real job as an adult was at the glamorous and beautiful Palace at the Principality of Monaco, where I improved my Italian and German studies from school.

American by citizenship.
I have been living in the coveted Silicon Valley in the state of California for 19 years! And teaching since then… French and Spanish at various elementary schools, high schools, and privately at my home office… 
I do as well some interpreting and translation jobs.
I am married to an engineer, a Western New Yorker who has always supported my decisions. Besides growing together and feeding from our opposite backgrounds, we take care of our beloved Huskies.

And lately a craft Blogger.
Since I discovered the world of stamping in 2008,  my life is so much fuller…
A total new and unique world has open to my eyes…
Languages, teaching, decorating and creating have being present throughout all my life…but since I discover the world of card-making these passions within myself have exploded…
I being very lucky to be able to combine and share these passions not only through classes at my local craft store and at my home…But now here in the "Blogosphere".
In  2012, by coincidence and at the same time that I was “conceptualizing” this Blog, I was offered the privileged to be part of the Memory Box design team and I started posting at The “Outside the Box” blog. In 2013, I began running the Spanish and French blogs for Memory Box.

Teaching, decorating my home, collecting Nativities from around the world, organizing my craft room, stamping, crafting, dancing, meditating and last and lately writing in the blogs are my “motor” pleasures and hobbies. Besides this, I love to travel too, discover new foods people and cultures.

Thanks for visiting my Blog.
Hope to see you back often here!
