- 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap -



How are you? over here is busy busy busy , I've earned myself a nice rest and I plan to lay in the couch as soon as I mail my pending letters tomorrow.

You may noticed my little gingerbread men above! that's because I made some of them to send to the Second Annual Holiday Ornament Swap hosted by the lovely Freshly Blended Blog, I packed them in nice brown paper bags I embellish with the papers I showed you the other day


Just look at them :), they were playing around my mail, so cute!, You can see more ornaments on the 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap flickr group


We also made a bunch of these crocheted ornaments, love the noise of the bell and they look wonderful on the tree :), These are not for the - 2007 Holiday Ornament Swap- I sent some to my friends along with their Christmas card.


As you can see here, they are very helpful :), they helped me pack and check names,addresses and correct labels.


I made 26 bags!! I only needed 9 but I got exited with the gorgeous paper and I had to make more to wrap my holiday care packages and gifts.

I printed some stickers with the logo of the swap to decorate the outside of the parcel , I love making these I plan to do a bunch of these bags for spring with a new collection of papers.

If you want to see more photos of these goodies, I uploaded more at My Flickr

Well I have to go now, today is my brother's Birthday and he wants to catch some movies, something tells me I will be eating a lot of junk good today ^_^ Yay!

Enjoy your day!!

~ Belated Trick or Treat ~

Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead ^_^


Wow time flies, It's been almost three months since my last post 0_0, I want to thank you for all your wonderful emails :), I've really missed you these past months and I will get around to email you back when i get the chance ok.

I've been up to a lot lately, I changed my hosting service ( because dreamhost was making my life miserable) I bought me a new desk, bookcase, craft table and I painted some old shelves that my mom wasn't using at her office and I've been slowly creating the perfect place to make awesome goodies, there's still a lot of work to be done but I will get to it eventually.

So as you can see I've been mostly improving on my home and work, but most of all learning and practicing on new and exiting things :) I also got sick and took some time off to organize my life and catch up on my reading, and let me say there so many great books and magazines out there that I can easily spend all Fall reading :), I've read a few crafty/design/kawaii books over the past months and I plan to talk about them in the upcoming weeks.

And how are you?? I've seen some of your blogs but it's hard to keep track of all of them,even with bloglines, but I promise that over the next week I will do my best to read you all.

And because a post isn't a post without pics, here are some goodies;


Yummy candy, don't you just love those gummy worms? :) There my favorite, not only for Halloween but I like to have them around all year, My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn, I saw a pack of the new Brachs milk maid Caramel Candy Corn, they smelled sweeter than the regular kind, I hope I get a chance to try them before there gone.


I made these goodie bags the other day, I got some precious paper (the gray one from Paperchase)and since I saw it I had a vision of these skulls , so I sat down to draw and make some :), I wanted to use them as decorations but I thought it looked cooler on a brown paper bag, simple but they made a huge difference :)

Well I'm off to eat now, Next Friday there will be a Paper Toy :) for you to try
Take Care and Enjoy your Weekend!
