This little dolly says Hello!

She's been keeping me company these days, cleaning,taking photos and arranging everything, I had a very fun Holiday Rest but as a result the house, computer and craft room is still a mess, I have to store the Christmas goodies for next year and take our the Valentine stuff for the upcoming month.
You may ask yourself were did I found such lovely company? well I received her in a very special envelope from Kat :) I adore her and I had to keep her, thanks Kat, I also loved your pretty HK card!

I've also received many other great gifts ^_^ from you guys, I had to take lots of photos and I'm still not done with everything want to see more?

:: 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 ..

Hi!

I got lots of pictures to show you but as always I've been lazy lol, yesterday I took pictures of all the swaps I've received and now it's time to give my swap partners proper thanks!

First let me tell you that I adore this bag, the fabric the shape everything, it's perfect I can filled it up with letters and envelopes without looking bloated lol and the best part is that's reversible ! It has red fabric on the inside, I'm so happy with it, this is my favorite item form the private swap I did with - Craftsty -form flickr

image

These are the rest of the goodies ^_^, lots of yummy Japanese candy ( all the boxes are empty now X_X ),Lovely fabrics and buttons, HK deco-tape and my second favorite the Little House Stationery that resembles Decole illustrations :)

oh!! and Scarlett loved this guy over here, Craftsty made it :) she makes super cool goodies with felt,I've always wanted to try needle felting myself but I always forget to buy the stuff I need, there's something nice about the wool, it looks like cotton candy, makes me want to eat it lol.

:: Thanks A Bunch Babz for your awesome package, I hope you liked mine as much as I enjoyed

And this is the little box I got from Brittney Bush from the :: Kawaii Matchbox Swap :: the theme was "Things with wings", love the ladybug ribbon and the candy she sent but Scarlett again ate most of them.

I like the weather today, a little cloudy but not too cold, so it's fine :)

Tomorrow I'm going shopping for a new Camera ^_^ at last!, the one I have is 6 years old X_X and it takes 1.2 MPI pictures , so as you can see I can't take the good quality photos I need to deliver for a secret awesome project with this thing, So I'm thinking of getting one of these, I can't decide --->

Canon PowerShot S3 IS
Canon A640
I wanted the Canon Digital Rebel XTi but that camera is way of my price range right now $_$ LOL
