Watch “Giving Back…” on YouTube

July 19, 2019

Here’s my son recieving training this summer from an intern who is a freshman at UNM. He’s learning how to work at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. He’s been going there since he was a young child and it’s such a great place. It is important to me to raise a thoughtful, creative, cultured child, whom could give back to his community.

This summer I decided it was time to take active steps in teaching him how to develop a good work ethic. We both became official volunteers at the Santa Fe Children’s Museum. What a great way to give back and teach kids something valuable in the process!

My Not So Little Candle

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”

❤When your son has no sisters, but he would have made an amazing big brother. I love this guy. Rico and his clan took Daryn to Albuquerque with them last month.❤ Photo by Alira

Maddie♥

August 5, 2017

Over the years, some people return to the archives and it’s always nice to see them again. This was the first of four long trips out to Santa Fe that we got to meet Tracy’s adoreable kids. We had fun making them feel at home and creating a kid friendly room for movies, reading and art!

After a month, when Tracy, Alan, Ben and Maddie (my favorite 7 year old who loved my office dragons) left the archives, Gail made us some tasty root beer floats in the break room and I brought Maddie two dragons of her own. She promptly and intricately named each.

My 3 Sweethearts Graduate

We Made It! 

May 22, 2017

Created with a loving heart by Felicia Lujan for the Turquoise Trail Charter School~ 6th Grade Class of 2017.

May has been a very busy month (creatively) for me. I have: finished the flowers for a wedding party; sketched, then painted a 10×10 banner; and created an almost 12 minute memory movie. Today was spent decorating the school for the big day. I’ll share more soon about what I’ve been working on over the last few weeks.

This memory movie is one of the things that took me hours on end to create. To make the movie, I: scanned hundreds of photographs; incorporated still, moving images and sound bytes; and created a custom mix of three songs selected by the kids for the audio layer.

▪On some nights, I had a cross-platform system on fire… scanning, editing, organizing. Both my PC and Mac took a beating on this project!▪

The Weeknd Look~Alikes  

April 1, 2017

Crack me up… I’m putting myself on blast with this one, but I always say I look like Don King when I get up, but this morning my son told me I look like The Weeknd. I told him that he does too.

Deadman Party

March 12, 2017

This child loves to throw “video game parties” and entertain his friends. He is definately a people person and seems to have no problem socializing. My son said “his friends loved” the “Zombie Punch” I made for his first party, so I promised to make more creative treats.

This time I changed up the theme a bit to keep it interesting. I used some decorations I already had to set a thematic mood. That theme included me making “Deadman Punch.” The punch had pineapple sherbert, fruit punch, and Cool Whip topped with red sugar sprinkles. To add the dramatic touch kids love, I added the hands made of ice. Then there was the matching “Deadman” cake.

Party 2 was a big hit. Being personable is so valuable and I’m glad my son is able to connect so well with his peers. These are times he’ll cherish forever.

Caramel Apple French Toast

February 28, 2017

*I seriously have to try this myself sometime soon. I sliced the apples thin then topped the toast with hot, salted caramel sauce and cinnamon. Yum!*

Thanksgiving Eve

November 26, 2016

We had a good Thanksgiving dinner. I had the guys make farolitos and we made a fire, so it was cozy. I love candles and had 50+ strewn about the living room. They highlighted my mythology table, dragonology table and wizard corner. I made some cute center pieces that were easy to make. We all contributed food, but I made an orange and honey glazed ham, bacon corn, honey glazed carrots, sweet potatoes with candied pecans, Jim Beam honey bourbon apple cider with cinnamon sticks, a smoked oyster and cheese platter, and toasted pistachio pudding. I think the pudding was a big hit. I had Mike torch it so the marshmellows, sliced almonds and turbinado sugar got toasted up. That was good!
