- My First Carving -

Hi!

The day is sunny and warm over here, it's a good thing because It's been quite cold and I was starting to fell a little sick, but the Spring sun brings a smile to my face and makes me feel better.

image


Like I mentioned in my precious email I had lots of things to show you, one of those things are my first handmade stamps!!! Yes I was brave enough to give it a try, thanks to my dear Friend LiLi that inspired me to try it after seeing her cute creations. And I came up with these a envelope mail stamp a spring leaf and a WIP mushie that I am going to show you later.

image


Not bad for my first try right? I am very satisfied with these and I have many more on the works right now, I also need to get the proper tools, carving blocks and ink pads because I carved these on erasers I had on my desk, is a really cool feeling and I want to try and make some with real carving rubber.

Passing to other goodies, I will continue to post all the swap parcels I've received over the past month :), I've been reading many emails asking for the photos and finally here are some of them, I hope you like them as much as I did.

image


These are the wonderful fabrics I got form my private swap with Jen ^_^, she's great and she sent me the cutest card :), Thanks Jen I really enjoyed our swap, can't wait to swap again!

image

ohh and How I wish this little Sewing Machine was real :), it would look great real size don't you think? I finally have this cute machine after a year of searching and asking for it everywhere, I made a Private swap with Shi form Brazil, they had it over there and she was kind enough to send me one along with the cutest HK candies and goodies.

image


Like for example this little Hello Kitty :) she's a cutie and that apple is so practical, I wish I had more for the craft studio to organize little things while working. Thanks for everything Shi ~ THANKS A BUNCH!
I added more pictures of the goodies she sent at my Flickr :)

Well It's late and I better get back to work, I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Pineapple Hello Kitty Says Bye Bye!

Happy Monday!

I hope you had fun and had some time to make that cute Santa I showed you. My weekend was nice because we finally got your X-mas tree and some colorful ornaments we found at Target, I also got me lots of Fabrics, Ribbons, Yarns and Pretty Paper for my Christmas Crafts and Gifts.

I plan to ship almost all of my International Parcels on Wednesday, so I must hurry to get it all done on time.

I found this cute gingerbread house fabric :), you know I'm obsessed with gingerbread men and cookies, the rest of the fabrics in the photo are from my Holiday Stash :), I took them form the storage bin, refold them and now they're displayed in my craft table.

Hi!

Nice Sunny day were are having here, not to hot and not that cold either, I like it when the wind blows like this :)

Many things have happened since my last post :) , I've been working a lot and taking pictures of my old work like crazy :) I just finished yesterday and I wanted to rest a bit and sew something, cuz I have a lot of cute fabric that I want to use :) that's making me incredibly giddy right now.

I need to work on some PDF files today in order for them to be really by tomorrow or Tuesday, Another exiting thing is that I've been receiving lots of invitations for fun and interesting art projects ~ Yay! can't wait to receive my material so I can start working on my contributions :) that's something I'm looking forward to.

So since I got lots of pictures that I wont be needing for my project ,I'm going to post them here :)

Say hello to my little Mushie here lol
image


It's of combination of quilting and embroidery over linen :), made with Heather Baileys Fresh Cut Fabrics Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut Fabrics I bought, the linen is mounted on a 8 x 10 canvas for the picture only lol because I need to buy the frames :), I liked how it turned out, this cutie is going to Scarlett's wall, because she's crazy for mushrooms lately. I also made her a t-shirt but I'm saving that picture for later.

I've also noticed that a mushroom mania it's spreading on blogs and Flickr, must be because we have lots of inspiration , like the cute mushrooms from Kamio and Q-lia and little kawaii stationery like the ones I have here -->

image


These cute memos are form the Pop'n Friends Collection by Kamio Japan, I got these in an ebay auction a few months ago and I love them all, I haven't seen them in a pack before , there so hard to find :)

image


And you know I love stamps, self inking, handmade you name it, I love them even more if they are kawaii like these ones by Q-lia!, with cute stationery Scarlett and I get super inspired :) we both fanatics of Japanese cuteness.

I've been receiving lots of snail mail :), I need to take some pictures so I can show you the goods!, well I better get back to work.

Take Care and
Have a crafty day!
