Hello Friends!!!

I've been wanting to decoden my phone case for sometime now so I finally did it over the weekend. WOO HOO!!! Of course I had to deco it out with Hello Kitty, pink, bunnies, roses, ribbons, strawberries, & sweets. :P

Here are some pics to show you the finish product.

I have a ton of goodies to share from my weekend adventure so I hope to get those posted soon. I'll work on it when I get home from work today.

Happy Friday Friends!!!

I'm sooooo glad Friday is already here. It's been a rough week for me so I'm looking forward to the weekend.

On Sunday I will be visiting the 48th Annual Niles Antique Fair & Flea Market. I'm excited to go as my Sister invited me to attend the event with her. I heard it's going to be SUPER pack with people. It opens at 6am. WHOA!!! It'll be interesting to see what treasures I can find. I'm specifically looking for ephemera. I especially LOVE vintage greeting cards, postcards, pamphlets, tickets, and old letters.

I have a stack of vintage postcards & greeting cards I picked up when I attended the Vintage Paper Faire a few months ago but forgot to post pics. I'll do another post when I get home. Stay tune for update.

On another note, I was looking through my flickr album and found some pics of my Sanrio "Hello Kitty & Friends" pen collection. I have been collecting pens for 12+ years. There are soooo many neat pens that I can't bear to use them. At least the ones I consider to be rare. LOL! Here's a pic of some of my pens~

It's been awhile since I've purchase any new Hello Kitty pens but I think it's time to be on the hunt for a few. LOL!!!

Just wanted to share the mail art goodies I sent off to Jacqueline. I really enjoy doing these mail art swaps and look forward to doing more in the future. Please let me know if interested. I recently signed up for a mail art swap via Swap-bot. I'm not really new to mail art per se so I don't think I'm a beginner but I still thought it would be fun to join in the swap.

Here is my envelope I decorated for Jacqueline:


I ♥ wrapping up everything as I believe it makes the gift more exciting when it's wrapped up cute. :D

I have a few other personal swap/gift projects I have to work on so I hope to get more posted here on my craft blog soon. I haven't done any crafting lately. Please stay tune. Thank you!!!!

Hello Friends!!!

How are all of you doing? I hope all is well. The other day I was thinking about something to make with the burlap fabric I bought while thrifting a while back. I created this burlap bag for one of my Youtube friends (Shhh... it's a secret). She likes Hello Kitty so I thought it would be fun to add an image of her. I used collage pauge to apply the image which works perfectly. I added lace trims, pink grosgrain ribbon bows, & some mini paper roses. Here's a pic of what I created.

I haven't swapped fb's or decos in a long time and I really would like to get back into doing some swaps. Anyone interested??? I don't have a lot of excess Fb's like I used to so if you don't mind receiving new fb's or decos please let me know. The above picture are some of the old fb's & decos I passed along. I found this pic in my flickr album which was taken in 2007.

For those who aren't familiar with FB's or Decos~

I want to share with all of you the deco den container I created for my friend Katherine. It was her last day at work today so I wanted to give her a gift. Katherine's favorite color is purple. I used 3" x 5" size plastic container and various cabochons and other embellishments I have in my stash. I also added lots of sparkling glitter.

Close up of the deco box.

I also created some mini containers. I made the mini purple one for Katherine as well. The others I will be adding to my etsy shop soon. I have a few more items I want to create before I re-open my shop.


Hello Friends!!!

I've neglected updating my blog with some mail art goodies I sent and received. Work is keeping me SUPER busy and sadly I haven't gotten around to posting these photos I took a while back. I hope you don't mind the photo overload. LOL!!

First I'll start with goodies I sent to Aurora:

Some random collage images I printed. I LOVE these vintage images.

More vintage images. I especially love the Hula girl. Isn't it cute?

A few items I picked up from Joanns.

Everything all package up & ready to mail. I enjoy packaging things I send in the mail.

I received a lovely mail art swap from Jacqueline~

I LOVE all the goodies she sent me. Look at this envelope. So cute!

Mail art goodies. :)

She knows how much I LOVE Hello Kitty so she sent me this adorable bag.
