In Quebec, an allophone is a resident, usually an immigrant, whose mother tongue
or home language is neither English nor French. The term is also sometimes used
in other parts of Canada. The term parallels Anglophone and Francophone, which
designate people whose mother tongues are English and French, respectively.

Luis was very excited when he saw the car loaded with stuff for repacking and even helped bring some of the boxes into the house. He even took the initative of making signs to indicate where everything was and assigned duties for those who were coming.
Those who came to help were Sam (who was celebrating his birthday that day) and Roxanne, Cole and Kensie and Aerol, plus Lilian and Maget and my kids Luis, Nadya and Bianca. Together we made 50 relief packs -- 1 of which went to our driver whose house was flooded, 15 went to the maintenance people in Bud's office and the rest went to the factory workers of Bud's friend whose export factory and inventory (including finished goods awaiting shipment worth $100,000) were all wiped out.
This is not much, I know, as everyday, we hear more stories about people we know who need help, but it's a start.

Having 3 kids, this is a very difficult question for me to answer, since each of my kids is a star in a different way. But since Bianca is celebrating her 4th birthday this week, I decided to do a LO of her.
It was refreshing to do a romantic LO after all the "punchy (I wish!)" LO's I've been doing recently. I even got to use my glimmer mists!

Journaling: For now, it's ok that I barely have any time for myself, that most of my waking hours are filled by things to do for you and with you, that my world revolves around you. One day soon, you won't be needing me as much -- then I can scrap the whole day, go shopping, get a massage, a facial, manicure, pedicure, get my hair colored and cut or even get some sleep. But for now, my time is your time and that's ok...for now. 082309
Materials: Bazzill cs, Nikki Sivils pps, Daisy Ds die-cuts, Making Memories tag, Creative Imaginations brad, American Crafts Thickers, Clearsnap ink, Zig pen, clock face downloaded from internet

Journaling: Funny how, being a list person, I have a list for everything, but I don't have a bucket list. But there is one place that I have always wanted to visit that has eluded me thus far -- SPAIN! I'm not even sure of what there is to see or do there, I just know I want to go there. Could it be because the Philippines was colonized for 300 years? Or because it was my 1st language? Whatever! I just wanna go there!

We literally had a choice of papers, cardstock and embellishments to create our LOs and could make as many as we could within the alloted time. I'm so glad I decided to sign up for the Wait List 3 days before the event and made it in by some stroke of luck...or was it Divine Providence?
I so enjoyed playing with the Bam Pop papers that I never had the courage to buy because it wasn't totally me. Here are the 6 LOs I made -- some more complete than others...most still needing journaling...I will post the final LOs once they're done, sooner than later, I hope.
