Finding Charm

I started making jewelry because I had outfits I just couldn't find that perfect piece to go with. So I thought I'd buy some beads and give it a try. I was hooked, it's almost an addiction! It's important to me that I create charming pieces that don't break the bank. I started getting compliments and requests and decided I should help others in their journey of finding charm.

Monday cupcake Find

This Monday I'm going to introduce lucky17 and her fabric baskets!

Cupcake Basket
FABRIC BIN- Organizer- CUP CAKES- Polka Dots- Robert Kaufman- Large, $19 by lucky17

I used two different prints to make this fabric bin. The main body of the bin is a cute and colorful print of cup cakes by Robert Kaufman. The upper part of the bin is accented in a bright pink with white polka dots print. Brown "rick rack" runs across the front of the basket. The inside is fully lined.

This basket is extra large and will hold many items. They make great organizers for closets, shelves and childrens rooms. They can also be used as a diaper holder in your babies nursery. Fill it up with anything you want. Handles are on both sides for easy lifting and carrying.

Basket Features:

*Fabric has been pre-shrunk
*The handles have two rows of top stitching
*The outer fabric is interfaced with batting
*The lining is reinforced with a medium weight interfacing for added support
*100% quality cotton
*Hand or Machine wash cold on gentle, line dry

Basket Measurements:

*8" Tall
*14" Wide across the top
*10" Wide across the bottom
*6" Depth
*Two 7-1/4" Handles

Do you have a cupcake to share with me??? XO

Randomness Saturdays

After a break for last week (my birthday) here we are with another Random Saturday.

♥ I have a confession, but please don't laugh. I know you're gonna laugh, it's ok I can't see *you*, so I'm not gonna feel completely humiliated: I have a pimple. On my tongue. Yup! Like this one. I know I cannot be the only one with this problem, but it's so painful and so dumb :( I don't wish it to anyone else to be this uncomfortable.
Anyway, I'm also kinda of mad because I was told that after my surgery I wouldn't have to deal with this kinda of things. It's been 2 months and here I'm again :((((

♥ I had a job interview last week (totally by mistake....I went grocery shopping and ended up in one). I want the job sooooo bad! Would be a night shift, so it will be perfect for us: I will be able to stay with the kids during the day. When I'm gonna sleep???? I dunno, but I didn't get the job yet, so why worry now???? XD

♥ I was included in the sweetest cupcake treasury evah!!!!! You have to see it!

♥ I also had the honor to be the Crazy Train Rider on Artfire. People belonging to the Crazy Train Rider guild came into this thread to promote me and comment about my shop. Was very uplifting.

♥ Ok, movies that I saw lately that I really loved:I saw "7 pounds" with Willie Smith and I'm not sure I can say I love it, because talk about suicide, but it's moving for sure. And then I saw "Evan Almighty" (on the following of "Bruce Almithy") and I must say the message of the movie is really beautiful - a must see!

♥ And now I leave you with my fave song on the week: "Who Knew" from Pink

What I got for my birthday!!!

As you might know, the past Saturday was my birthday and I got some nice presents that I'd looooooooooove to share with you!!
Cupcake mold
Key necklace
The first thing that came in the mail was the new and sweet cupcake mold from Shop Sakura: I was drooling over it for few days and Fiona was so kind to send it to me and me and my daughter Michelle already put it a good use XO

And than just yesterday I found the most delicate and precious key necklace from Simag!!! I was so impressed by the workman ship and even the package was just too sweet for words.....
They really spoiled me!

But the surprises aren't over!!!!
My bestie Michele at Sweet Irie gifted me with the sweetest treasury

My blog buddy Kayla gave me a shout out/birthday wished on her blog, The Eclectic Element

Also, my friend Kim from Vabeachquilter purchased from me and blogged about it!!!

And I also got some clothes, a cord cam (YAY!!!) and I was able to talk via phone and via cam with my folks in Italy, which it's always really nice!!!

Not bad, uh?

I'll leave you reminding that it's last day to enter the Pieces of me Pendants giveaway

Randomness Saturdays

Is it Saturday yet???? Let's get started!

♥ The school is over for both of my kids and time is very limited, but I LOVE cuddling in bed with my children after 7 am XO

♥ Gabriel had a little ceremony for completing Kindergarten: I took some picture of him and his teacher (above) and next year (in 2 months!) he will go to first grade!! YAY!!! Michelle will have another year of PreK, but both kids will go to the same school from now on, which will make my life much easier.

♥ I donate my hair to "Locks of Love": I let hubby cut my pony tail and he went a little bit "mad cutter" and the back of my hair looks very funky! I will post pictures for you all to see soon and my hair with a check will go out this coming Monday! In the meanwhile, I'm crocheting a hat to cover the mishap until my hair will grow back again :)

♥ We're going to visit my father in law tomorrow after he's been sick: thank you so much for your prayers, he's doing much better! Also, my mother in law is waiting for this dream catcher afghan that I just finished for her.

♥ A couple of treasury that I'd like to share with you!
Blueberries and Vanilla by Late night Design

And Lori Made this from the Handmade Highway members that are donating parts of their profits to the victims of the oil spills: Because the oceans should be blue.

More artist featured on Handmade Highway blog too.
