:: 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 ^_^

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 :)

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.

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!

- 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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

.: 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.

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!
