Gift Ideas

I am officially on vacation! From my real job that is…6 days of family, lots of food, fun, and a little crafting! I have some new mugs to share with you today. The first one is very near and dear to my heart! I think you will see why…


This little sentiment says a lot! I customized my mug with hearts, four pink hearts for my four girls! This would make a great gift and can be customized for just about anyone ~ Mommy’s, Grandma’s, Papa’s, Daddy’s…

This next mug is a little “tongue in cheek”. I thought it was pretty funny and would make a great gag gift or white elephant gift.


With Christmas just around the corner, my mugs make the perfect gift and can be customized for that special someone in your life!!

Enjoy your holidays everyone!





Some of my Fav’s…

March is already over! April is just around the corner, can you believe it!? This last month has been busy, but when do I not have a month that is NOT busy, right? I had the opportunity to get quite a bit of crafting, scrapbooking and some jewelry done too! Two of my favorite’s to work with right now…Canvas & vinyl and photo jewelry…There is so much you can do and create. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them.

While at Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton, CA I revisited one of my favorite booths – Craft Fantastic! I love how crisp and clear photos just pop out of these glass bubbles.  I picked up this little cascading flower necklace and added the charms of my beautiful daughters…the possibilities are endless on what you can create.  Honestly, this picture does not do this justice!



My sweet friend at work, Melissa is having her first baby boy in the next few weeks. I’ve seen so many great canvas pieces on Pinterest lately, I knew this would be a great gift! Not to mention having all girls, I couldn’t wait to create something for a little boy.  I grabbed some 12×12 canvas at Michales, added three coats of acrylic paint. Next I added on layer of modge podge (best product ever!), let it dry for a few hours – overnight is bettery…then using my Silhouette I cut out the baby subway art.  The best part! I was able to modify the image and add the baby’s name for a more personal touch.



Thanks for stopping by…until next time!

Isn’t that Pinteresting!!

In case you missed my “Pinterest” debut…here it is! I find so much inspiration from around the web, Pinterest keeps it simple and organized.  As crafty and scrappy as I am, Pinterest has also helped around the house!

I have to thank Julissa Ortiz with Good Day Sacramento for coming over and visiting. We both agree, Pinterest is very addicting, so if you are not on Pinterest, you need to be – but fair warning… you will be hooked!

Keep an eye out for the projects I started this morning. They will be on my blog later this weekend!
