Someone tried to ruin my life...and maybe succeeded

I have no words.
Yesterday early afternoon I discovered something which could change my future forever, even if I hope that it won't really happen, I feel so bad since yesterday, I didn't sleep, I didn't eat, I even felt sick into the bathroom for what I read.

My boyfriend's family found very bad entries in my Italian blog and thought the worst possible things about me, obviously.

I admit that during the past autumn and winter I expressed doubts about my future near them, but simply because I know that we're quite different and I had the fear to ruin everything with my boyfriend because of it. I admit it, but I've never even thought such bad things, neither about my worst enemy!!
Fortunately my boyfriend, after a total day of silence from him and his family, sent me some examples of what he read with his family in some old entries of my Italian blog and, when I started with the first page, I immediately realized that not all the sentences came from myself, someone had surely access to my account and added a lot of hate.
I'm not able to vomit that kind of insults to anyone and lately I was also happier and happier to move, because I felt better with my future parents-in-law and thinking about my new life in Piedmont (I guess you too read this changement in my latest posts)!

Today I hope to have the chance to talk directly to my boyfriend and to his family, to tell them all the truth. I don't want to see 4+ years ruined because of someone else's mental disorder, I didn't write all that cr*p.

I want to move and go on, starting again my life with my boyfriend and mixing with his family, but I don't know if it'll be really possible, I hope they'll believe me and will give me a opportunity.
My boyfriend suggested me to leave for Belgium in any case, then we'll decide what to do with our relationship, but obviously I couldn't imagine to travel in this situation (I'm so sorry, Isolde).
I feel so bad now, please God listen to me!!

Waiting to travel and move + HerProBlog opportunity

Summer is going so fast!
We're still waiting for the kitchen sink, while the 4 doors arrived...evidently they're not able to send everything good, as one of them is lightly scraped in a corner, but my boyfriend tells that it's almost invisible as that door of the kitchen will be placed in the upper part.
Anyway, I can't wait to move to start my "works" into the flat, I mean other renovations, decorations and so on; I'm already getting inspiration from bloggers who write abou their home, their photos are very interesting and useful. I can't believe yet that it'll be our own "home sweet home".

About my personal life, on the contrary, I have to say that I started to cooperate as co-author for HerProBlog, it's a place made by and for women who want to network and also to get the best for their online business, such as great suggestions to start blogging with profit, marketing and SEO tips, online resources, interviews and so on.

I'm very proud of my tasks, which are the ones of the section called "Discovery and Reviews", I'll share that place with another great blogger, we'll discover and review nice women's blogs, so...

LITTLE ANNOUNCEMENT: if you want to send the submission, we'll be happy to write our articles about your blog, you have to be active online for at least 1 year and passionate about blogging, but it doesn't mind the topic of your blog, the more you're varied and the more the community will become interesting; just fill in this form, we'll be informed and soon we'll write the reviews.

Another nice news item is that on July 30th I'll leave for Belgium with my parents by camper van and we'll come back on August 11th, I'm so much excited.
The bad part is the fact that my parents want to spend their summer vacation only in the Western and Eastern Flanders, so we won't visit any other region of that Country because we don't have enough time; what a pity, but I'm sure that I'll have other chances to be in Belgium, I'll try again to visit it soon.

Well, for now I don't have nothing else to report, but I'll surely update before my departure and I hope to have the time to create at least another layout before the end of this month.
Have a nice time and see you soon, ciao my friends!

28th week of the 2008 Scrap Challenge

Even if during this week I was busy, today I found some moments to scrap and voilà my creation for the 28th week of the 2008 Scrap Challenge, this time scrappers had to prepare a page with free topic, but using material such as tissue, cork and so on.

I chosed to use two postcards of Bologna, which I bought some months ago from a newsdealer just with the idea of using them for a layout.

The title recalls, in Italian, my latest entry at "TheItalianVoice" blog, I wrote an hilarious and educational list of points to use about "How to know that you live in Bologna or province, Italy".

I didn't write the journaling, because I used some scraps where I've written some of the points of my list.

About the material, I used a sort of "flowering" vellum paper by Esprimo (line of paper napkins for découpage) which I glued in the central part of the page and some flowers in felt by Equatoriale and in tissue by Stamperia; I also used the green glittered powder by Country Decor with the glue to create some sparkling doodlings, two paper clips, two green letters of the alphabet (die cut style) and a flower-shaped brad by Stamperia.

A couple of details of the page:

Now I'm a bit in a hurry, but in the next days I'll tell you some nice news. Have a nice Sunday afternoon and evening and see you soon, ciao!

Bradaga for your Heavenly Sleeps

photo by Mister Rad

Today I was looking for websites which sell products for the house and I made another nice discovery and I think it is really worth the while to share it with the ones of you who live in the USA: Bragada, which sell the high quality Memory Foam Matresses.

The layout of the website is very clear and easy to browse.
The predominant part, which is the central one, is dedicated to the images and the sections of the great choice of beds, as well as other nice products such as toppers and pillows.
In the above and below parts there is a sort of map of the website, which devides it in 4 topics with several sub-items, so that customers can quickly and easily find what they are looking for.
The last part in the bottom of the home page is dedicated to the introduction of the great products by Bragada and their features.

Browing the products, I was attracted in particular by a wonderful variety offered by Bragada: the Adjustable Beds; they are extraordinary beds with a special curved shapes which support the normal posture and prevent from muscle strains and ailments due to discomfort.

A great section of the website which is worth to be mentioned shows the comparison between Tempurpedic and Bragada Brand; in fact, it enumerates several points which clearly guarantee the higher quality of the Bragada Beds, even if Tempuredic has been the very first famous brand of mattresses, because Bragada offers a lifetime warranty and affordable prices, as well as over 45 years of experience and the unique licence of holding the Orthopedic Research Seal.

Bragada proposes a nice choice about shipping; the options are standard delivery (which is free for a limited time), gold delivery and platinum delivery and it is allowed anywhere in the 48 States and also in Alaska and Hawaii with a nominal fee.

In conclusion, I have been enamoured by the wide choice of beds which Bragada offers, I wish I could live in the USA to try their high quality and professional services, but you who can...I heartily suggest to buy them and to relax completely in your bedrooms with them!!

Yay, the first part of the relocation is done!

Unfortunately this week I didn't have time for scrapbooking, this means no layouts for the 2008 Scrap Challenge, but I'm here to tell you about the first part of the relocation which we did yesterday. Hooray, I can't believe it!

I prepared a detailed reportage of the day =) , because I want to share everything with you, my friends. So enjoy my mosaics and the story!!

On Saturday July 5th we woke up at 3:30 am to meet 1 hour later and leave with the delivery van (loaded on Friday afternoon) and the car.

Here I took some pics onto the car along the highway towards the flat in Novi Ligure (province of Alessandria, Italy): my mother driving, my boyfriend next to me, my uncle sleeping next to my mother and in front of us the delivery van with my foster father and his colleague (you can see it in small size in the 3rd pic).

After unloading our stuffs from the delivery van, men started to assemble the new kitchen, while my mother and I drove to the Ikea Store in Genoa (Italy) to ask for a replacement of 4 doors which arrived already damaged, they'll delivery them in a week at the new flat.
I love all this green everywhere onto the mountains between the 2 regions of Piedmont and Liguria.

Here you can see a piece of the new kitchen by Ikea and the part behind our block of flats.

We all worked at the assemblage of the kitchen at the new flat.
We had a quick lunch with pizza, salted croissants and croquettes of potatoes in the balcony onto some cardboards of the package because there're no chairs into the flat yet and we assembled the major part of the kitchen, not completely because they still need to deliver the kitchen sink and 4 doors which arrived damaged and will be replaced.

Yesterday my parents were happy of seeing my future city and flat for the very first time, they said that everything is nice and now they're more serene about my future life over there, they also met my future mother-in-law and my future brother-in-law (still 2 to go, future father-in-law and future sister-in-law, they weren't home at that moment).
I'm satisfied about their positive reactions, now I'm more serene too.

Now we only have to wait for the doors and the kitchen sink, we'll probably go again at the new flat in 2-3 weeks, just before leaving for Belgium.
About this last topic, you can imagine my excitement and sense of anticipation, I always love to plan my trips, in addition I've never visited that Country and I'll meet my friends there!!

I couldn't foresee a summer like this one, now I feel so blessed to live it in this way before the final relocation, it's so much true that everything comes at the right moment =)
Have a nice Sunday evening and a positive beginning of week, see you in the next days, ciao!

Party Pro for all your parties

Today I discovered a very nice website which helps you to organize your special events with fantastic Party Supplies at great discounts: I am talking about Party Pro.

The layout of the website is clear and pleasant at the eye, it surely promotes an enjoyable visit at the nine different warehouses which are defined by colours: green, red, platinum, gold, white, lavender, orange, blue and yellow.
Each warehouse supplies a wide choice of themes at very interesting discounts according to the kind of event that you want to plan, from birthday parties (see for example the nice section of the Birthday Party Supplies) to anniversary, from patriotic events to retirement celebrations, from Valentine Day to 70's parties and so on; in this way no one is left behind, everybody can be finally satisfied by the Party Pro's big variety of offers.

In the home page, the Party Pro's team presents a selection of the latest releases, of the new arrivals and of the biggest discount opportunities, for this latest great service you can simply reach the section called Discount Party Supplies; then in each section, it is possible to delve into the details of the offers.

I wanted to check the prices of several products in different sections and I must admit that they are always honest and very affordable, it is perfect for every kind of customers, from young ones to seniors who have different needs.

Another great news item is that the shipping is free for orders over $50 within 48 States (for the Green non-bulk Warehouse only) and delivered in the U.S. from 7 to 11 days with the chance to use UPS Next Day service if you need a quicker delivery.
For people like me, who live outside the U.S., the orders are available also from abroad with shipping charges based upon the weight and the size of the package and obviously the distance.

Something which I always look for in a nice website is the opportunity for retailers and resellers to cooperate and Party Pro offers all this and even more; in fact, it is possible to join their affiliate programs too with a great service of total customization of the offers which you want to add into your websites.

In conclusion, the website of Party Pro offers the widest choice of supplies of the web with great discounts, I heartily suggest you to rely on that wonderful team for every sort of your parties because their company is really honest and trusty and always meets your needs to offer you memorable events in your life.
