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.

image

I also found these ones! they're so soft, love their texture and colors, I have a project planned for these, can't wait to get started.

image


Maybe you've seen these ones already, if not here are the - Holiday Knits - stamps, I love this set specially the deer and the bear, I have to pick up another booklet on my next trip to the post office , because I know these are going to end up on my International packs.

Fabrics and Craft Books - All Japanese

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


Well I need to take a nap, my head hurts :(, see ya and enjoy your day

:: Lucky Parcels ::

Las week I put together these lovely blue goodie bags, these are going to my - Lucky Parcel- Swap Partners, the theme for this month is blue ^_^ and as you can see many of the items are Turquoise my favorite kind of blue!

image

There's a lot of crafty supplies in this parcels, ribbon,bias tape,fabrics,pom poms,rick rack and other goodies.

:: Polka Dots, Cherries and Fruits ::

Happy Monday ^_^

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend, over here it was Hot- Hot but we manage to cool us down with lots of ice cream, the pool and water balloons :) so it was fun.

I'm happy because I got the most wonderful snail mail on Friday, I Received my Kawaii Matchbox Swap and my Craft Matchbox Swap, love those two a lot and the lovely Mug I ordered arrived! Can't wait to show you the lovely pics.

In other news, I ordered more fabric form the distributor again ^_^ I couldn't resist I got this wonderful catalog with the new fabrics and they were all so beautiful that I had to get some, can't wait to them to arrive.
image

And speaking of nice fabrics here are some pictures of the bolts I got, I had to cut pieces for myself before they're all gone. :) I'm using the small polka dot blue one to make some pincushion surprises for the - Lucky Parcels Swap-

image

Ohh and I love this one, they had it on blue but It all sold out, I placed a pre-order so I hope they re-stock on the blue one soon, I was so luck to grab the red bolt :).

image

I love fruity fabric , this one reminds me of a nice spring- summer picnic :) so Yummy! I would love to make an apron or some place mats with it.

image

I got these FQ at Joann's, I saw this same fabric at Flickr but in Pink, I searched for it but I only found this blue one, too bad they only had 2 FQ :( and they don't sell it by the yard, and I wanted a whole yard, I love the Leafy Plant Print.

image

And Finally some Kawaii eye candy :) I received this from Xandra all they way form The Netherlands she sold them to me, Thanks a bunch this sticker sack is really hard to find it's from Q-lia form their Smile Pocket line a super special addition to my Kawaii Collection. More pictures of this sticker sack at my Flickr here


Have a nice day!

:: Shipping Smiles ^_^ ::

Today seems to be cooler than Yesterday and that's great news for me, because I hate sewing when It's hot I always get all sweetie eww, I was sewing late at night and I'm almost done with the motorcycle bag, and let me say it's coming along great, Now I'm sewing the inner pockets and the straps and then star cutting the other bag, they're cute big and heavy and my arms hurt a bit for lifting it. I also made a precious pin cushion for the ::: Bag of Treats :: Swap I'm preparing, photos of that one soon ;).

Anyway here is what I'm sending to the :CRAFT Matchbox Swap: the theme for this month is - Fruity Craft Supplies-, as soon as I read the theme title i knew I had to join in because I love fruits.

image


I love apples and I couldn't pass out the opportunity to decorate the matchbox with juicy colorful apples :), this time I didn't paint the box just cover it with a pattern I printed.

image


Fabrics, ribbon, trims,beads,buttons,embroidery floss, a strawberry pincushion and other embellishments are in this little pack , I hope my partner likes it. I had lots of fun putting all these items together.

image

This is another pack I sent to moofin from flickr, this is just a peak because I added more things to the swap.

Today I'm gonna try and finish the motorcycle bag and another small bag I'm doing for a the Bag of treats swap :), I already cut the pieces form one of my favorite Japanese fabrics :), it's going to look so pretty. Well take Care and Enjoy the weather!

ta ta ..

Oh! Gocco ♥

Love the weather today, not to cool and not to hot, it's perfect ^_^, It's weird how can the weather can inspire you to create.

Well as I've told you in previous posts, I've been experimenting with my new toy, unfortunately because I got really sick I didn't got the chance to finish the cute bunnies, but I'm working on them as we speak, there waiting to be sewn and stuffed ^_^
image

So Yes! I finally got the Gocco I wanted to badly, Willy got it for me 3 months ago, I didn't used it then because I was waiting for supplies (bulbs, ink, etc) and the Print on fabric ink set I got on ebay.

image


The main reason I wanted a Gocco is because it's easy to print on fabric, this idea makes me nuts!!, Imagine my own design on pouches, patches,bags,totes, and many more items!!! Yay! I'm really exited about it

image


These are the screens and that little bunny was my practice original, I didn't went with that design, instead I picked the bunny that has a mouth, both on them look cute anyways. The Gocco was very easy to use, the only inconvenience I had with the master was that some of the laser toner got stock to the screen when i burned my image, I used the blue filter but I think that wasn't enough, next time I'm gonna reduce the intensity of the toner when I print the original to prevent this.

image


Here it is, all ready to print It looks like whipped cream or vanilla icing lol, I'll show you the rest of my project in another post ^_^ because I'm so hungry and I need to grab some lunch, I enjoyed printing gocco, it was fun and problem free, can't wait to use it to print designs and patterns on fabric.

Well I hope the weather it's nice were you live :)
Enjoy your Day ♥
See Ya!
