What do cars, bikes, guitars and cakes have in common? They are Serena Flowers passion...aside from creating artsy design for guitars and almost anything one can think of she can also turn your favorite dishes into work of arts...the problem is how do you savor a lovely cake when you want its beauty to stay forever...

Hello, my name is Serena Flores, and I am an artist in San Jose California. I have been doing artwork all my life, and only recently have decided to sell my artwork to others. I do anything from pencil, chalks, oils, to woodwork and custom painting and refinishing guitars, to doing band logos and drum heads. I am 28 years old, a mother of two, and married. I like to stay active, and I love to cook. I do requests for people at will, or just decide on what to do and post it for people to enjoy, whether just looking, or to purchase for them to hang in their home or offices. Thank you very much for your time and looking at my life's work!
Sold to James Jennings, my best customer, who loves all my artwork =)

It does not happen
that we are young in years,
but still, be youthfully free
in heart and soul,
to love despite.
We are what we are
and act the same
as the wind cries out
“The world will move
‘round and ‘round
taking with it the
ugly time downwind
but never this devotion.”
Listen to the wind.

I can't seem to get him out of my mind... the memories of what we used to do together hit me like a whiplash...only that the existing trauma is in my heart...
What magic potion had he used to make me fall for him like this?
I told myself over and over again that our relationship was void from the beginning and yet i unhesitatingly jumped into Cupid's abyss, wrapped in love's passion, totally lost in its pretense of infinity.
Heat was a primary substance I cannot endure. The mere sight of him, his smell, his voice, his caresses made me desire him more. His insatiable kisses aroused my innermost being...
I've never been so intimately involved with anyone before...
I craved to penetrate the minutest details of his thoughts...his heart and lay there forever untouched by life's daily strife...and yet i'd wake up every morning thinking how long this will last? I was caught in the intricacies of this clandestine love affair...
I never wished for one minute to be out of this whirlpool even if my conscience urges me otherwise...DESIST!
I LOVE HIM UNREMITTINGLY even if his reticence is killing me..

Why did God make mothers?Answered by 2nd Grade School Children
Shared by Linda Flagg
1. She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.
2.. Mostly to clean the house.
3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.
How did God make mothers?
1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3. God made my mom just the same like he made me. He just used bigger parts.
What ingredients are mothers made of?
1. God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2. They had to get their start from men's bones. Then they mostly use string, I think.
Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
1. We're related.
2. God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom like me.
What kind of a little girl was your mom?
1. My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2. I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3. They say she used to be nice.
What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1. His last name.
2. She had to know his background. Like is he a crook? Does he get drunk on beer?
3. Does he make at least $800 a year? Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?
Why did your mom marry your dad?
1.. My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world. And my mom eats a lot
2. She got too old to do anything else with him.
3. My grandma says that mom didn't have her thinking cap on.
Who's the boss at your house?
1. Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2. Mom. You can tell by room inspection. She sees the stuff under the bed.
3. I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.
What's the difference between moms and dads?
1. Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2. Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them..
3. Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.
4. Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.
What does your mom do in her spare time?
1. Mothers don't do spare time.
2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.
What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1. On the inside she's already perfect. Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2. Diet. You know, her hair. I'd diet, maybe blue.
If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1. She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean. I'd get rid of that.
2. I'd make my mom smarter.. Then she would know it was my sister who did it not me.
3. I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

The core value we have set are spelled in five simple words C.U.R.E.S. -- Create Unite Respond Enlighten Share; it isn't really grand or too remote to be achieved it is the basic of human relation. We live for others, and if NOT we deny our own creative spirit to experience the joy of being part of a society.
We build and all these may gone to ashes tomorrow...as we see the evidences around us in great turmoil because of personal interest and secluded groupings. Our group aims to collapse that boundary regardless of affiliation and non-affiliation. The reality is REAL because in our very own beliefs and the value we form within us we tend to debase others not in sync with our path. The blacks will always be black and the whites we always be white...But as artist we understood that if we join these two element we created a new color...a new mind set perhaps, that at first glance seems neither black nor white...but a little understanding will bring us to the core of the conflict, which is not conflicting at all if we look at it at aesthetic value.
Do you see gray as smudges or shades?The choice is yours.
There will always be differences, and that unique quality is evident within our siblings. We came from the same womb yet differ in taste. Let others paint like Michaelangelo or Raphael but please don't ridicule others if they paint like Van Gogh or Picasso or vice versa.
I always look at the world as a living canvass, creative outpouring of a collective human geniuses and frailty. What makes us beautiful is our tendencies to be "human" yet divine in the likeness of God. What likeness is that? Our ability to create and appreciate an Art work. That shared ability was lend to us by The Ultimate Creator to experience the joy of creating.
If I could just offer my hand to paint a canvass filled with all these different colors in spite of the stains it will leave and to inhale the toxic pigment outside of me may have not realized; I would gladly lay down my personal health painting long hours...so long as we watch together in harmony the unfolding of a picture our differences created.
To all Art Lover...peace in the swirls and strokes in varied directions.
OK! Dar orasul meu e foarte departe de al tau! Solutie: o cafea vituala ca intre prieteni!
Si doar pentru statistica, sa stii ca mi-a placut (aici e zambetul lui Tony Curtis in "Marea Cursa" , ala cu sclipici!)!
O zi minunata! (E baba mea!)
PS Inca mai sper ca sunt exceptia de la regula enuntata de tine! Cam stiu exact ce vreau! Sunt pe acest site doar pentru ceea ce am scris in profil: prietenie virtuala! Daca vei accepta, vei fi unul dintre rarii si foarte specialii mei "net" prieteni! Ce zici?
English translation by Gabriela M.
If you hit her, it's called mistreatment of women. If she hit you, it's self defense. If you make a decision without asking her, you are a jerk. If she takes a decision without consulting you, she is emancipated woman.If you ask her to do something she doesn't like, is male domination. If she ask you, you do her a favor. If you appreciate a woman's forms and short underwear , you pervert. If not, you're gay. If you give her flowers, you want something.If not, you are a donkey. If you're proud of your achievements, you're full of yourself.If not, you are lacking in ambition. If she has a headache, she's tired. If your head hurts you, you no longer love her. If you want to make love too often, you're obsessed.If not, you have somebody else. And we wonder why men die faster ...
