.: 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.

image


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!

Friday at last!!

Yes Is finally Friday :) I had a nice but hard week, work work work trying to put everything together for the upcoming month, How was your week?

Well If you don't have big plans for this weekend, you should meet a pal of mine, We have been hanging around since Yesterday and He's really cool!

Say Hello to Indie Boy
A cute fun paper toy pal that can keep you company when you have nothing else to do :) People say he looks like Harry Potter because of his glasses but he's missing the scar.

image


Designed for pure fun by Daniel Coronel Indie Boy comes all the way from Brazil.

Using the original Paper Dude Template Daniel Drew and developed this character.
mmm... This Indie Toy, got me inspired to make a Harry Potter version but I need to find more time for that :)

image


image


A very simple model to work with, fast and easy, you will need 10 minutes max and you won't have trouble pasting his tabs, you will need a cutter knife to cut the lines to insert his head and arms but that's as complicated as it gets.

image

Don't forget to make your own Indie Boy - Paper Toy Pal This weekend


YOU know what to do ^_^

.: Mushrooms and More Mushrooms :.

Rain rain go away! I want to take some pictures today! lol
It's still kinda cold here, my fingers are ice cold and hard as bricks.

I stayed up late again, this time organizing my font archives , I had lots of duplicates and those were giving me trouble, I haven't finished, I need to install some new ones and delete lots of useless zip files, a very tedious job, but hopefully I will be able to breathe under the sea of folders.

image


I am sleepy like this guy over here :), I finished the little guys I showed you in my last post , some here for the - Lucky Parcel Swap - and the others for the mini stationery sets I've made.

image


Here are the Lucky Parcels, It was a mushroom theme and I got really exited, I wish I had more time to decorate the bags, but I was behind with stuff, I wanted to print a mushroom pattern I made the other day, bu I had no time for that and I pasted some Q-lia Mushies , they turned out fine, but I still want to make the other ones :)

image


Here are the goodies contained in each little brown bag, mushie fabric,bias tape,buttons,rick rack,pipe cleaners,embroidery floss,ribbon,pins,thread among other goodies. I personally would love to receive one of these , imagine an anonymous parcel with all these goodies :), I'm dreaming now lol

image


Finally!!
I finally made my - Gingham Mushroom - Mini Stationery Set I had lots of fun putting these sets together, some were for the - 5 things Mushroom Swap- and the other ones to send to friends, I think I will have to make more to send as little Valentine Gifts, because they ended up looking cute.

image


Just look at these guys :), I made the envelopes myself form kraft paper, It took me some time, but they are the perfect size for the paper sheet :), Scarlett loved the stickers, She requested a full sheet, The mushroom illustration was inspired by the mushroom plushies I made a while ago with Scarlett, we are drawing more versions, can't wait to male those.

image


And finally, look at my sleepy - Spool Mushroom - I have a bunch of these waiting to be coated and finished :), I will post them later, this was just a prototype and I am making me an army ♥

I off to eat something and then back to work work work, exiting things are coming and I better be prepared :)

Have a nice day! ♥

- White, Pinks and Reds -

How's your Monday going ?

Mine started a little lazy, it's cold and It's hard to get out of bed, lucky enough we had some Hot Mexican Chocolate from last night, so that game me a little more energy :)

I am still a little sleepy because I stayed up all night looking at my photo Archive C_C there's a lot to be done and tons of photos to post, I am trying to organize all my files because it's hard to work when you have a mess and I've been procrastinating on that for some time.

Now let me post some White, Pinks and Reds ^_^, I've been looking at these colors everywhere and I can help myself to be inspired.

image

Here's my ♥ Valentine Fabric Stash ♥ lots and lots of hearts in white, pink and red, too cute! some of these fabrics are from last year and I got 2 new ones this year, I want to make plushy hearts, can't wait.

image


I just love Gingham Fabric, as soon as cut a small piece of it to make a YoYo I saw a little mushie friend telling me; .... make me .... Make ME!!! and I did, just look at him :) perfect for valentine charms , I am gonna make him some friends because he's all alone right now.

image


image

Here's my - Crafty Mushie WorkStation - I've been thinking of doing these mushie items for so long, I have them all in my sketchbook waiting to be done, but sadly I hardly find time to make my ideas, Sometimes I feel very bad because I am dying to make new stuff, I have old projects from 3 years ago that I'm still thinking about, that's why I'm organizing everything, maybe if I have everything in the right place it won't be so difficult to start crafting in the middle of the night :) this remind me that i need to get me some new lamps because the desk lamp I have sucks and makes my eyes hurt.

image

A sample of my - Stamp Collection - I love vintage used stamps, those are the best, here you will find some from Rome,Denmark and Austria :), I will keep posting more of these, they are a treat to look at!

Have to get back to work, Take Care and Have a Crafty Day!

Got Milky ?? - Paper Toy Friday -

Happy Friday!!

Today is Paper Toy Friday and I have a really couple for you guys to make over the weekend.
I know that many of you will recognize this little Character from the Video - Coffee & Tv - from Blur, but for those of you that haven't seen him well here it is -->

image


Meet - Milky - He's a cute, brave and cute carton of milk that falls in love with Milky Girl!
Milky was designed by Gareth Stranks and i assure you you that your paper toy collection won't be complete if you don't have this cute couple.

image


Here is his lady, love the eyelashes and dreamy eyes :)

image

These two are very easy to assemble, just like the paper of last week this one has straight tabs making the folding and pasting easier, If you have double sided tape you will finish this set in a flash!




If you didn't catch the Blur Video don't worry, I have it here for you and you will see Milky and his girl in action.

Hi, how is your Monday??
I hope fine, I'm really sick since yesterday I have a horrible fever and can't stop sneezing , lol I'm super dizzy and mad because it sucks having this flu-cold with this hot heather X_X I want some ice cram and my throat hurts like hell.

Well passing to more happy stuff lol
I was taking pictures of the new goodies I got in the mail when my battery died so I decided to show you these goodies instead.

Fabrics and Craft Books, Can't have enough of them, My favorites are definitely Japanese

image

I was drooling for this fabric for some time and I finally got me some from Reprodepot
, I think this fabric is perfect for a pin cushion and a needle book, what would you make with these?

image

I got these precious ribbons at Michael's, too mad they only had these left, because they're fun and cute. I have to share these with Scarlett because she's going to make a project with these :)

image

- Design Collection for Kids - ISBN987-4-529-04204-8

I used to look at this book at ebay and I always thought it was a really beautiful book, but now that I have it, I think is so much more than pretty pictures, it's practical and very inspiring, the instructions are simple and the projects irresistible, can't wait to try all those embroidery with wool felt techniques :)

image


Just look at these :), I have to buy me more linen , I want to make pretty bags ans decorate them with these pretty flowers ^_^

image

And what can I say about these kawaii animals, I think they would look great in linen patches or embroidered in Scarlett's Jacket or on a patchwork linen pillow.

To see more pictures of the book and other goodies just go toMy flickr
