New post (Kitchen Dreams / Kitchen Essentials) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/kitchen-essentials-kitchen-dreams/
Featured Image [Source] of Rustic Kitchen. As I pack for yet another move (I hate moving, who doesn't) and I'm still a year or more away from buying a home of my own, I can't help but fantasize on my dream kitchen. When it comes to tools and supplies, I am almost already there, as my numerous ...

New post (Selfie or Self Obsession? Part 1) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/selfie-or-self-obsession-part-1/
Years ago, when I was a student a Maine College of Art, majoring in graphic design and photography, I became fascinated with a genre of art called the self-portrait. Back then, the phrase “selfie” was unheard of, instead, it was a self-portrait — a representation of one's self, whether in paint, ...

New post (Tactile Traditions) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/tactile-traditions/
Above: Potholder fiber art. [Source]. We live in the age of the touchscreen, of the portable phone, of information at our fingertips, yet other than liking, clicking or selecting, we don't really use our hands for much anymore. We use our fingers to press the buttons on the microwave to cook our ...

New post (The Long Winding Road) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/the-long-winding-road/
This is how my life has been lately… I started to write this about a week ago “I haven't written for a while I know and” when there was a computer problem and I had to stop. The next night I tried writing in bed and wrote “I begin this before bed when” and my pen ran out of ink.

New post (september eleven) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/september-eleven/
rousing to a sonic boom i confuse it with the daily rumble of the traffic on canal emerging from the holland tunnel. myself, wrapped in bedcovers warm rolled, regarding window view twin towers in their testament of global commerce gone askew. 8:45, eyes still blurred ...

New post (I Won't Be Skinny for my Wedding but I Don't Care) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/i-wont-be-skinny-for-my-wedding-but-i-dont-care/
In less than 2 weeks I'll be married. Well, technically, I'm already married but that was just for the visa. When we legally married it was in Santo Domingo at a Justice of the Peace with couple of friends. Our event will mark 6 years from our first date and will be the first real celebration of ...

New post (Down the Road and Back Again) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/down-the-road-and-back-again/
Above: Photo @Eliza Alys Young, “Tree Arch”, St. Augustine, Florida. I think I might have been a gypsy in a past life because my journey in this one has been so nomadic. While part of me has longed for a stable place to dig my roots in, my life has kept me moving. Now is no different.

New post (Strengthening Family Bonds with More Laughter) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/strengthening-family-bonds-with-more-laughter/
Many people wonder if there are particular strategies that we can use to maintain a happy family, and while there are some things that you will find across the board, there are actually plenty of ways that will help your family create stronger ties between each other. But ultimately the secret ...

New post (To Honor Our Love) has been published on Amor y Sabor (Love + Flavor) http://amorysabor.com/to-honor-our-love/
Two weeks ago we held a wedding to celebrate 6 years together and to honor the love that seemed at first unlikely to succeed. Although I have been married before, I never had a wedding or held any event such as this, one with catered food, fancy clothes, drinks, decorations and a photographer.

Materialization of the Idea
Introduction
I am a creative professional, originally from NYC, who lived in the Dominican Republic for 8 years. I own and operate my own creative services company called Design Intense, working with clients from around the world.

My personal passions extend beyond design to creative expression in all its forms: handicrafts such as knitting, sewing, beading; art such as photography, collage, drawing; dance, gourmet cooking, poetry to name a few.
