{Best Non-paying Customers Ever} Easter Subway Art pictures from Cynthia.

I was so happy to open up an email from a wonderful lady named Cynthia! She sent me photos displaying the use of my Easter Subway Sign which you could get here. She did such a beautiful job with her decorations, I got so excited. Also, she was kind enough to mention where she got some of her items - I was happy to discover that they came from Etsy.
The "Spring Blocks, Wooden Daisy, and Eggs" are from LisaBees - such a cute store, I definitely want to buy stuff there. And, the "Bunny Garland" is from Creations by Minda.
Here are the fabulous photos! I really need to decorate for Easter now.














Thank you again Cynthia! You really made me happy!

{Project Help} Love : Japan in Cupcake topper form

It is devastating to see pictures and videos of the effects the earthquake has imprinted in Japan. I am here in Guam which is not to o far away  - I believe it is only a four or five hour plane ride, so we definitely had warnings to evacuate in certain areas. Luckily, Guam is surrounded by reefs which acts like some kind of barrier to Tsunami's - slows it down.

I created some printables which I hope could fight the devastation and lift spirits! They could be purchased here in my Etsy Shop!

I wish I were rich enough to donate a big chunk from my girly wallet, but I am not. So, I will cross my fingers that my project does a good job. Every profit earned will be donated to American Red Cross!!

My Japan disaster relief aid package includes:
  1. 2 in. cupcake toppers  "I heart Japan"
  2. 2 in. cupcake toppers "Pray for Japan"
  3. 5x5 Sign " I heart Japan"
  4. Cupcake wrapper
  5. Water Bottle wrapper
  6. ** and if I create new items I email it to who ever makes a purchase.
Use these printable items to ......
** Host a bake sale and use the profit earned as a way for you to donate yourself!
** Wear the cupcake toppers as buttons by glueing on some felt and attach to a pin!
** Make your students create signs and decorate it with the 5x5 sign!
** Style your water bottle by representing Japan!
...the possibilities are endless!! People will know you care even more so. :)

Here are pictures of my daughter's representing my "Project Help - Love: Japan" Printables!

Baby Bootie Cravings

I was shopping around Etsy and stumbled upon a very cute store that sales baby booties! I thought they were absolutely adorable! I just couldn't keep my eyes away from all the cuteness. My heart started pumping faster from the excitement. I am growing restless and want morning to come already (it is pass midnight), so I can head to the fabric store and make my very own. Lurking behind the restlessness is some sort of panicky feeling because I started calculating the age of my youngest daughter -- she is already 19 months, so soon - very soon her little feet won't be as baby looking. But what the heck, I figure I'll just try it anyway. In fact, I think if I am successful I will make as many as I can - in different colors, different styles, and different embellishments. Can you tell how excited I am about this?! I wish I had done it sooner, especially since I have two other girls who are much older for these on their feet. Ugh, I hate thinking how late I am with this!

So, to make peace with myself and for the time being. I went on a tutorial search that would best help a beginner like myself  be confident enough to attempt this booty rampage. Here is what I have so far. If you have any other please share!

    { Party Time!} Snowflake Ballerina

    As mentioned in a previous blog I had the opportunity to design a silhouette snowflake ballerina invitation and cupcake toppers!   I also made the cake and was the photographer. :)
    This party was absolutely cute, my cousin did a wonderful job with the decor - simple and sweet!
    Here are my cupcake toppers!



    Pink popcorn, swirly lollipops, cotton candy, and a pink fluffy thing - I forget what it's called.
    My cousin purchased the snowflakes for the banner at Oriental Trading.  She used her cricut  to cut out the letters.










    Decorating Cookies! These are my two fairies out of three.







    Here is where they picked up their hand made tutu's!
























    This is my daughter, Ella.
