:: 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!


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 ^_^


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 :)


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.


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.


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!

Swaps, Gifts and Posts

Wow it's cold over here, or maybe it's just me :), I woke up really early (4:30 am) to take Willy to the airport, he's going to the KDE conference at google , I'm still kind of sleepy and grateful that I'm gong to pick him up at 8 pm in a few days :).

ohh and I received my January Fat Quarter Swap the other day!! just look at these fabrics --->


I really liked this one, I had a generous partner, she also sent me lots of extras chocolate and tea :) I have more photos at My Flickr


Clarice surprised me with these wonderful stickers :) and some super cool double sided tape, I use it to make a paper toy yesterday and it rocks, I will need to find more of that tape later because something tells me that I'm going to run out of it soon.


I just love the aesthetic of the Zakka designer Shinzi Katoh I only have a this cup and the postcard Lili sent me, his fabric design is really something, so wonderful, I hope to keep collecting more of these wonderful items.


I had to post this wonderful Christmas gift, my friend Lili really knows me and pamper me all the time, she sent me a Decolello air freshener from Decole, the postcard and some cute plushies she made.
Scarlett took the plushies to her room :) her favorite if the bunny but she loves pigs also, Thank You My Friend.


I feel that I need to post more about my projects, I know that most of the time I post photos of swaps and parcels but that's because they really deserve a nice photo and a thank you :) maybe I need to write more often, so I can have space to show you the crafts I've made.

I've been experimenting with crochet again, I found a really nice brown cotton yarn and a smooth bamboo crochet hook :) let's see what happens.

Well I'm off to eat something, I need my coffee today

See ya tomorrow!
Happy Mothers Day!!!

To all of you that have the joy to have a little one to take care of, I know that it's not today, but In Mexico we celebrate Mothers Day ( Dia de las Madres) on May 10

I know I'm a little behind and that I haven't posted this week, but that's because I've been working very hard with Willy adjusting some papers and designs we need for his work, In my spare time I've been designing and working very hard on a "Paper Toy" , ohhh and let me say that I think you're going to like it very much because It's Kawaii, not just plain cute but the type of Kawaii I like to post!! ^_^ I wanted to post it this Friday, but I still need to finish some details I want to improve. so maybe next week.

And since this post is about Precious, Beautiful Gorgeous ::Fabric:: Here we go with the Lovely Designs of Lara Cameron


She's a very talented Australian designer, I know you have seen her work somewhere around because since she started printing her own fabrics , she's been features in lots of famous blogs, Love her aesthetic Style and color sense, I was lucky enough to get this piece of fabric, because it sold out quite fast on her etsy store, Can't wait for her new Fresh Printed Batch!

I just had to share these with you! Yummy Delicious ::Decole Fabric::


How did I get my hand on these??? Well these were a present form my Willy, I don't know how he secretly managed to get me these FQ's!!, I begged and begged to tell me the name of the store and he finally told me that, he knows a guy from his work that has a Japanese girlfriend,they started talking about Japanese Items after the guy saw some pins I've made for Willy's laptop case, he commented that his girlfriend collects lots of that "Girly Stuff" and I don't know how, but a month later I had these Wonderful Fabrics ^_^. Now because of that I'm always checking his backpack for goodies and surprises LOL!!
There heavy canvas and the colors and designs are beautiful, If you want to see more photos go to my MyFlickr
