Happy Sunday


Today I got crafty right before heading off on yet another shopping spree. This is apparently the weekend for shopping. I hadn't planned on shopping all weekend, it just seemed to happen that way. Anyways, I made this cloud and raindrops right before I left with the family to shop.

Cloud and raindrops creation

I used blue and gray felt, bought from the dollar store and light pink thread to sew up the ends. First I cut out two cloud shapes out of the gray felt, then sewed them together and then stuffed the inside with poly-fil. I then used the same light pink thread to hang the raindrops from the cloud.

Then once I got back from the mall, I made this picture line, inspired by one I saw at pottery barn today while shopping. It does the trick, I love how I can easily just add or take away a photo, I love the new addition to my room.

Hope you all have a good rest of the weekend !

Value Village Saturday


I hope you have all enjoyed your Saturday and are well.

I went to Value Village today and found a lot of things I liked. Here's what I bought..

Some toys from Disney Movies, Bambi and Toy Story

Isn't this lovely?

A mug with the word love in different languages: French= amor, African= upendo, Dutch= liefe, Danish= elskov, Italian=ti amo, and so on...

An owl, I actually found one!

Spice rack, I will soon use for craft items, like beads, paint, yarn, buttons, etc. :D I was so excited to find this!

Chinese Buffet "All you can eat" Golden Pug tin can, love it

Hope all of you are having a creative evening, take care!

It's Friday :)

I am so happy it's Friday because this week, while working at the daycare, I have gotten a horrible cold that I just cannot shake. I have a sore throat, stuffed up nose and sneezing every 5 minutes. I am hoping I can rest up this weekend and hopefully it will go away for next week...

But, it's the weekend! so i'll have time to shake this :)
I watched "All about Steve" tonight, it was hilarious, I recommend this one if you want something funny and light to watch one night. Also if there's someone you like who doesn't really like you back, funny play on that... you'll see ;)

Bradley Cooper and Sandra Bullock from "All About Steve"

Tomorrow I am planning on thrifting :) there's a value village nearby that I want to check out to see what the latest items are in to scrounge. I am looking for some owl things, interested in owls right now, some dears, and just older vintage feel items to decorate my room.

I also want to create! this is something that I look forward to doing at night during the week. Last weekend I knitted most of the time and finished the cellphone holder... this weekend I will be working on knitting another one for myself, and maybe something else.

Have a great Friday night :)

box :)

Hey Everyone!

I didn't write yesterday because Bell was acting up and my internet connection was not working :(
So latest project: I found a small, plain white, necklace blox in my room. There is so much you can do with a white box! I feel the spark of opportunity and am so excited to paint it.
I was thinking of painting an owl on it because I seem to be really drawn to owls right now.
this is a picture of the kind of owls I am interested in painting on this particular box.

Thanks for visiting!

Problems in the Workplace...

How is everyone :)
yay 2 more followers, thank you so much for thinking that this was a worthwhile blog for you to follow, welcome!

So I have something to talk about that bothered me today. At work there is a women who just bad mouths another one of my coworkers once she leaves to go home or she isn't in the room. "She doesn't do this right, she does this and that, blah blah blah". I really don't want to get involved in this kind of thing because wouldn't you hate to be the woman they are complaining about? and it's funny that people do it, because aren't we all a little self conscious and worried that people are talking about us when we are not around?
Also I really like the woman that she is complaining about, so I just kind of stare at this person who is complaining and I haven't worked closely with her before so I don't know how it is for her, well apparently it isn't fun.
My thought is, just don't get in the habit of discussing negatively a coworker with another one of your coworkers, it is a snowball effect because once you start that kind of complaining, it's hard to stop. Maybe she should discuss this with her boss but keep in away from other coworkers...
What are your thoughts?

Take care, and don't gossip! :)

It is the New Year and I have some crafty goals I would like to achieve this year, have you all made goals yet?
mine are:

Knit clothing: I really want to knit something to wear this year, I have been procrastinating but I can do this! just need to pick up the needles and wool.

Oil Paint: I just love the look of oil paintings, so beautiful it would be great if I could paint my own someday. Practice, practice, practice!

Learn to crochet: my friend just learned, I think it would be fun :)
sketch more in the sketch book

hey !

sorry I was away for some time, I will be writing again now. I got inspired again by watching the movie 'Julie and Julia'! has anyone else seen it? very amazing movie and it got me thinking about my own blog :)

Amy adams in Julie and Julia

So lately I've been working, I got a fulltime job in a childcare center, I am really loving it :)

I started a project, it's a gray tank top, I had to frog it unfortunately because I didn't follow the pattern correctly.. but I will start over very soon, probably tomorrow since I don't want it to go on too long without any projects.
I am also knitting my sister a phone cozy, she asked me to, i think it'll be cute.

what are your latest projects?


write to you later <3
