.: 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 .

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!

Happy St. Patrick's ^_^

Happy St. Patric's Day!

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post, time goes fast and I thought I had to make some time to post because then it gets super hard to catch up again :), I also felt kinda guilty of not posting all the wonderful swaps I've been receiving in the past weeks :), so If you sent me something, don't worry I will post it soon.

The reason for my absence is simple, I had to concentrate on what I've been doing, It's very hard for me to focus on one thing lately, my attention span is getting worse and worse in the lat years, so in order to try and finish what I've started I had to keep myself away from my emails,Journal and Flick, I must admit that is hard and I really miss you, but I had to to what I had to do and It's been working :)

image


Well like a mentioned earlier, Ive been getting the coolest parcels! sadly US customs tend to take a peek on my International swaps and they always mess my pretty wrapped parcels :(

They don't take the time to close it again, most of the time the boxes are in pieces with the goodies falling out and It's hard to say if It's missing something X_X

image


In other swap news, I got these wonderful goodies in the Fat Quarter Fabric Swap for the month of February, this is the best parcel I've got form that group, lots of wonderful extras!

image

And look at the wonderful fabrics :), my partner Karen did a wonderful job choosing them and putting together this wonderful parcel!


image

Take a peek inside the kawaii organizer, is so cute, she sent me a purple pen and everything :), her sewing skills are wonderful and the fabric is so sweet and soft, you can check more of her goodies at her Etsy Store Here

image


This is a peek of what I sent to my March FQ Swap Partner :), she's just starting quilting,so I hope she finds them useful, I added some of my red-white twine I wrapped over a wooden spool, these twines are a must on a sewing parcel.


image


I also sent her some nice teas, that strawberry mango is so yummy and aromatic, I am a coffee person but I've been sampling lots of teas lately :)my favorites are the fruity sweet ones a very nice alternative from coffee.

Well I still have lots to tell you but to make it all short I'm going to say that I've been drawing,designing,reading,cutting,carving,writing over the past month and It's all about Paper and Coffee, well a - Paper Cafe - to be exact :), but I will tell you more and Show you something later.

In the meantime, Have Fun! don't' drink to much and
Have a Nice Day!

If you are expecting an email from me, don't worry I will reply soon! :)

My hands are sore :(, I was making buttons for some promos I need to ship and my fingers started hurting a lot, I have copper allergy (among other metal allergies)and it sucks because the brooches of the pins are made with this material so I always have to suffer when I make them lol, It's ok because I love making buttons, but this time my hands got all red and it hurt a lot :( don't know why this time was much worse than the others, Anyway
