Bump update!

So I went to Labor & Delivery on Tuesday because I started having contractions!!! I am 7months now, but its so scary to have them this soon. We were there till midnight and they told me that I was dehydrated and that also causes contractions, so I have to drink a glass of water every hour!! That means I have to pee every hour...YAY...not! I am just glad it wasn't anything more serious, I do not want to have this baby early.

11/28/08

Soooo... What do you think???



I finally redid my blog!! lol What do you think? It might be a little tooo girly, but I am just so excited I am having a lil Girl that I couldn't help myself! The kit used I just released it. Its called My Baby Girl and you can find it here at SFS. Ofcourse I couldn't resist adding a shameles plug in there! haha

Well I am 27 weeks, 13 more weeks to go!!! And I am super nervous! Jayden knows there is a baby in my belly and if you ask him whats the baby's name he will tell you "Chana Baby" which means Cziana Baby lol. I don't think he quite gets that a baby is going to be coming, I just hope he doesn't get too jealous! Well yeah thats my little update, I have to come back and post some pictures of my Jayden and my belly too!

Thanks for reading!

Happy Sad Day...




If any of you have followed my blog from the begining, you'd see it started with very mixed feelings. My Grandma who helped raise me had just passed away, she was 79. After years of suffering, she was finally able to rest in peace. Today 10/21, she would have been 80 years old. I miss her terribly, especially during the holidays and religious holidays. She was a very religious person, even when her knees started to give on her she would walk and take the bus 26 blocks to get to church. On ash wednesday when my mom couldn't take us to church, she would have the priest place ashes in an envelope and bless them so she could put it on our foreheads. During the summer, while she took care of us, she would make all of us grandchildren, 6 of us, walk and take the bus with her to church. It wasn't fun at the time, but now how I wish she would take me. She was buried in Mexico, so I can't even go visit her grave. She died on December 12, which was the Virgin Mary's Saint Day, so I'll probably go to her favorite church and go leave a buquet of roses at her altar.
Happy 80th Birthday Grandma!! I miss you!!

Noevir: Review and Giveaway

******CLOSED*******

I admit I am not a person who washes their face every night. I get too lazy or sometimes I forget. I've heard it countless times how bad it is for you, blah blah blah, but somebody recently told me that not washing your face one night, ages your face 4 days!! Can you believe that? 4 days, no wonder nobody believes me when I say I am only 22 lol.






I was lucky enough to work with Janice Markley from Noevir. Noevir is researched and developed and manufactured in Japan and enjoys the standing of being in the top 50 skin care companies in the world for the past 7 yrs. And I can totally vouch for that, I tried a sample of the 99 Skin care line, and I was very impressed. A lot of cleansers are too harsh for my skin, but the 99 skin cleanser was soft and smelled great! Also I was very impressed with the lotion, a lot of lotions I have tried make my skin feel oily, not this one, my skin felt moisturized and soft. I would highly recommend the 99 skin care line.

What most impressed me about their products was the Tokara Deep Conditioner! If your hair is anything like mine, dry and unmanageable without conditioner, but oily and full of build up if you do use it? Then you are going to absolutely love the deep conditioner. It was amazing how it made my hair feel! I can go on and on about this conditioner, this is my favorite product. You should definately try it.

You can also receive a Free Beauty Sample! Just fill in a short form and receive a FREE Noevir skin care consultation, a cosmetic sample and Noevir Catalog from Janice.

But I also have a little something for you. I received 2 Lip Conditioners, and I am giving one away. This Lip conditioner really conditions your lips with out the gunk, and its yours if you win, all you have to is:

*Go to NoevirUSA and check out their Skin care products and comment here which product you'd like to try, and why, please include your email address.

*Add my button or if you have it already comment here in a separate comment

*and finally, follow my blog or subscribe to my blog, and leave a separate comment telling me you haveGood Luck!! This Giveaway ends 10/20

***Giveaway has been extended till Friday the 24th!!


***Please leave a valid email so I can contact you, any imcomplete comments will be deleted.

My Birthday Bash Day2: 60% coupon!!!!

Hello all I am officially 22 years and 1 day old!!!! There is not enough time in a day, or years!!! I had a really nice time yesterday. My sister babysits my son, so she stopped by my job and got me balloons and brought Jayden to visit me at work. It was really sweet!! After work my husband took me to dinner with a couple of friends, that was awesome, I ate soooo much and even got my favorite dessert of all time: CREME BRULEE!!! Yum. Then we stopped by my mother's house and had chocolate cake!! Needless to say, I was exausted!!!

Well CznyDesigns Birthday bash is still going on!! You can still add comments for the Free Personal Kit from SFS, courtesy of Dawn. But I also have another goodie for you.

Hey Hey Hey!!!

I am back!! And I have lots of good news!! What should I start with?....

Photobucket
Well if you don't already know, I am 13 weeks pregnant with my second child!! I am very excited, I've been wanting this for a very long time and I am just over joyed! My son still doesn't get it but he will, he'll be 3 when this baby is born so it'll be enough time to adjust. My hubby really wants a little girl, I will be happy with either.

I took a little break from designing, morning sickness was kicking my butt!! But I am now working on a new kit, In honor of my son, he loves trains... OOps shouldn't say too much! lol So you will see that soon in the SFS store.

And I also have another review!! AND a giveaway!!

When I was pregnant with my son, I dragged my husband to a Baby Expo in Long Beach. I loved seeing all the cool new stuff there was for babies and preggo mommies. I stumbled upon this booth. It had really cute ponchos, the lady that was running it had one on her, and it wasn't until I looked at her that I saw two little feet where sticking out of her poncho. It was a breastfeeding shawl!! And let me tell you I have never seen a BF'ing shawl that cute! Sharon showed me many ways to use it and she showed me other products she had. I fell in love!


I love all the products of L'ovedBabyTM, I have the nursing shawl, I bought a whole bunch of onesies with the hand covers (those were a lifesaver! The mittens always fell off but these onsesies have them built in!!), and the cute little pants. The fabric is soft and stretchie, Jayden wore his till he was about 6 months old. I can't rave more about this company or Sharon, I will go on and on.

So now for the giveaway!! Would you like to try some of these products and see why I am crazy about them?

Well all you have to do is, visit L'ovedBabyTM and answer this question:
"How many different styles are offered in L'ovedbaby's Cotton Basics Collection? http://www.lovedbaby.com/"

Out of the people that post the correct answer, I will randomly choose a winner with Random.org.


You will win the Following
Photobucket
"L'ovedbaby 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl (any color you choose, a $30 value!)
This versatile 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl by
L'ovedbabyTM is perfect for modest moms who want to "privately" nurse in public and in style. The roomy neckline allows mom to maintain eye contact with baby, while the breathable and supersoft faux-suede fabric keeps baby cool and comfy any time of year. It's intentionally made of ultra-thin microfiber, which, unlike cotton, is less likely to harbor bacteria in the event of accidental milk spills and spit ups. And, with its covered back, solid colors, and no loops or clasps to deal with, this lightweight nursing shawl slips on easily over any outfit and blends right in. Also great over a breastpump for working moms. Best of all, it's machine washable, dryer safe and comes in a matching drawstring pouch, perfect for carrying an extra diaper and wipes when you don't want to lug your whole diaper bag. As functional as it fabulous, the 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl can also be used as a pregnancy poncho, canopy for the stroller or carseat, and lightweight blankie. It's the ultimate gift for any new or expectant mom. Win a 4-in-1 Nursing Shawl in your color preference! Make your baby a L'ovedbabyTM."

and

L'ovedbaby Signature Pant (in "Grand Sand" a $12.50 value!)

My handsome Boy

Also I wanted to try the mobile blogger, since i have a smartphone I thought it would be good idea to blog from my phone, so we'll see what happens.

New look!!! and a little something

Hi all, 2 new posts in less than a week??? GASP! lol
Well just wanted to welcome you to the new and improved Cznydesigns blog!!! yay!
Isn't it awesome? My friend and fellow designer Michelle Herron helped me bring it up. She even took her time to teach me how to add and use html! You see my side bar? I did it all by myself with a little guidance from her. It makes me feel cool that I helped make my blog look cooler, not that it looked bad before I just needed to make it more me! Well just wanted to show off my new blog.

Also I made this the other day


I am making a 4x4 coaster book for my son. AND I made a little quickpage for you! Titles and cute boy not included! lol

Bad blogger, bad me!

Hi all so I haven't updated my blog in like 2 months, I suck! lol Well I'm here with lots to say. First, I went to california adventure park at disneyland yesterday and it was lots of fun!!! My husband and I took my son to watch the Disney's Playhouse live. He had sooo much fun! He loves Mickey and Rocket (little Einsteins) and Buzz lightyear. We got on the new Monster's Inc ride, he didn't recognize the character's yet he has only seen the movie like twice. He was pooped at the end of the day, lol!

(Frames by Sophia Sarducci from On vacation kit #5, the elements)

OK so I also have new products in my store at Scrappinfreestyle.com. ( Also my store at digiscrapshak.com will be closed for 2 months, because the owner needs to take sometime off, and take care of her family, so prayers for her) So remember I said Jayden likes Buzz lightyear (hint: up on the top paragraph, lol)? Well I had to make a kit for his Halloween pictures (yes I am super behind on my scrapbooking), and other buzz stuff. Well I asked for feedback on what you'd like to see and I got a lot of it! It was sooo much in fact, that I had to ask for help from my fellow SFS designer Michelle Herron, and we split it into 2 huge kits!
To Infinity... & ...And Beyond! Sounds familiar?lol. Click on the previews to be directed to the store.

Here is the To Infinity... kit


and here is the ...And Beyond! kit





Isn't it awesome??? (toot) I am really proud of this kit and I think Michelle and I make a great team! I love her doodles and her very realistic elements. There is a lot of cool stuff in both kits, you get a little of both of urs stuff in each.
We also have a Bracket Album that fits on the basic grey chipboard bracket album.

and Michelle made a freebie just for you, but you have to visit her blog to get it. Just click on the preview and it'll take you there

Wow thats a lot of information isn't it??? BUT I'm not done...

Autism! Need I say more? 1 out of 150 kids will be affected by autism, those are not very good odds, and you don't when it'll happen, for most kids it happens very early in their lifes. Now I thank God that Jayden has not been diagnosed or even thought of being Autistic but he is only 2 so I pray that in the future he doesn't. Well I support this cause a lot and I was very lucky to be a part of a very good thing. One of our fellow designer's grand daughter is autistic and they need money to raise awareness. Well what can us DigiDesigner's do?? Make a kit of course!!!
walk Scrap Now For Autism: For The Love of Mckayla by 32 designers!!!

Photobucket

and here was my part, (its included in the kit)
Photobucket

the only way you can get this kit is to donate 20 dollars or more, thats it! I know its maybe a little more than we would want to pay for a kit, but don't see it that way, See it as donating to a great cause and getting this Awesome and Huge kit for free! It really is a great thing and I hope some of you do it. You can find more information at this website.


Well I think I have covered my 2 months of MIA don't you think? Well I promise to be here a little more, until then Have fun!!
