.: Happy Spring Days :.

I love these Happy Spring Days :), the sun, the weather and the long days, perfect to try new crafts or work without having to turn on every light I have in the studio.

I've been working as always, I forgot to write an Easter Post, so Happy Easter! to all of you, I hope your dinner was a yummy as mine, we ate potato salad with ham, it was so good that they didn't let me take a picture, everyone was super hungry.

Spring inspires everyone, I've been admiring wonderful photos on flickr, other thing to get all exited about are the new fabric collections from my favorite designers :) can't wait to see them at stores even if it means that I have to drop a pile of cash $_$

You may notice the green cute above, I carved it with an eraser, I don't want to waste my carving blocks so I've been practicing, I carved a nice heart for detail, carving is very addictive, I haven't done it in the last 3 days and I am dying to make another stamp.

image


I like this photo very much except for the light that wasn't very clear and white as always, This is what I feel doing every time i go to the post office, drop a card and a crocheted circle with a pin to a special friend just to say hello and wish her a nice day :), I've been playing with crocheted laces and circles, I with show them as soon as I take some pictures .
image

I just had to share this wonderful - Shinzi Katoh - Postcard with you, My friend LiLi always sends me the cutest postcards, Thanks a Bunch another one for my collection, One day I hope to frame them, they make excellent pieces of zakka art.

image

I love this bunny, don't you? this is another sweet surprise I recently got in the mail, a kawaii bunny that came to say hello from Taiwan, Thanks Joyce! he brought me the sweetest Hello kitty candy in apple,peach,orange and other yummy fruits.

image

And finally let me show you these cute birdies that Maartje sent me, the flu all the way from the Netherlands along with a cute Russian doll fabric and other crafty goodies, I have more photos of her prepackage in my flickr if you are curious :)
Thanks Maartje!

Well I need to work now, I hope to update soon, Is hard to keep up with my journal duties when there's so much to do.

I hope you have a nice day
Smile!

:: Pretty Containers ::

How are you doing?

I've been feeling a little better now :), I got some nice rest last night I went to bed early to catch up on my beauty rest lol

Today is Feb 13 - Scarlett's Birthday!!! ^_^ She's 10 years old now, time pass so fast , I can't believe she's ten already, soon a teenager :( I love my baby so very much that I wish she would stay like she's today, but then again she's my best friend and I would love to hang out with her in coffee shops and other places were she can't go right now lol, that's the cool thing about being a young mother, I'm 26 and after I loose my baby I will gain a friend .. Cool!


image


I also wanted to talk about my endless obsession with pretty containers lol, Yes I ♥ them, I like to collect them and see them all over the studio, I like boxes, tin cans, buckets,crates,metal and plastic tubs, wooden and paper trinket boxes are the best ^_^

image


Here is a sample of my collection, my most recent addition are the - Decole anticca - mushroom tin canisters, these are great, I fill the red one with metal brads, beads and a needle case and the other one with bias tape,they are so pretty and useful :)

image


Scarlett and I are crazy for mushrooms, each time we go shopping, we find ourselves is a quest to find pretty mushrooms ^_^, It is hard but we had find little items.

image


We also find these heart buckets, I wanted to fill them with candy and send them to my friends but I run out of time :(, so I will save them for next year, I have this one on the high shelf of my desk at home with yummy candy.

image


And finally this is a peek of the embroidery project I am currently working on :), I had this image in my mind and I had to draw it, I would like to work more on it to make a pattern and use it as background for my new site.

I'll show you more of my embroidery later :), I'm off to wrap presents :), I am not going to tell what because she might be reading my blog and I really want to surprise her, she's a sneaky girls and she always finds out one way or another, so I am taking security measures lol

I hope you have a great day
See ya tomorrow!

- Urban Toys - from Berlin

Happy Thursday :)

I feel just like miss Hello Kitty over here, with a big strawberry head because I ate a big bowl of nice strawberries yesterday, I felt really sick all week, my head hurt and I was getting a really nasty flu, I was craving lots of Vitamin C , I think strawberries and oranges will do the trick.

image


I love these Hello Kitty pocky boxes, I've been collecting them, how I wish I could understand this comic, it looks funny.
Anyway tomorrow is Paper Toy Friday and I don't have my toy ready, I've been wanting to post all week because I miss you guys :).

image


I got this rad pack a few months ago, filled with urban Toys, stickers and buttons from A Super Rad Designer but you may recognize him by Stick-a-Thing, he's an awesome Urban designer from Berlin, He makes the cutest pirate mushrooms among other goodies, check out his Flickr and you will see what I'm taking about.

image


I love Urban Art - Design as much as I adore Zakka and Kawaii goodies, there's something about all these characters that inspires me, lol must be because these have attitude :)

Well I work on some pending parcels now, I hope I can get the chance to post the toy I want tomorrow,because I am going to do some errands, I need to pick up lots of mail, can't wait to see witch swap packages I already received.

And look a -StickyPhallus- has taken over my Crafty Crate lol, I need those scissors to work on my toy, somebody help me!

Have a crafty day!

.: Mushrooms + Candy + Floss :.

It's cold and It's been raining over here :), I like it when it rains, the cold air reminds me of the beach, the bad thing is that's hard to take any pictures around here, because I don't have enough light, I hope the sun comes out tomorrow morning because i don't want my paper toy photos to be all gloomy 0_0

Well I didn't had the chance to pot yesterday because of the horrible traffic I was stuck in line for 3 hours at the border, it was terrible and then when I manage to get to the post office I saw another huge line and no parking, Willy had to leave me there, I made an whole hour in line just to send 3 parcels.

The good thing is that I picked up some really nice mail, I ordered some new books from amazon and they are really great! :) I also got some of these goodies.

image


Pocky Sticks are definitely on my favorite Jap Snack list , I hate it when they brake inside the packaging but they're so good that forget about all those little flaws as soon as i taste them :)
Of all the types of Pocky's that are in the market, I really liked this one - Pocky Crush - It reminds me of the Mexican candy - Kranky - by Ricolino , nice chocolate with a yummy crunch to munch! lol
Scalett Willy and I finished this pack right away :) It's so good!

image


I'm always drooling at online fabrics shops that carry Japanese fabric, like Superbuzzy or reprodepot, there's something about those prints that gets me all exited but when the cute design combine my favorite colors and mushrooms sometimes the temptation is too hard to resist. The sad thing about it is that a FQ is never enough.

image

I was doing some embroidery the other day and I noticed that I had a mess in my floss box, so I got me these plastic bobbins and I stated organizing my floss, It stated to look decent and cute, it is a tedious job but the result is very inspiring.
I will take more photos of my floss collection later, maybe you can give me a hand lol

Well the sun is up again, it comes and goes, I better hurry and take my pictures right now

See ya!

Have a Crafty day!

First let me tell you that I adore this bag, the fabric the shape everything, it's perfect I can filled it up with letters and envelopes without looking bloated lol and the best part is that's reversible ! It has red fabric on the inside, I'm so happy with it, this is my favorite item form the private swap I did with - Craftsty -form flickr
