Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! As this new year begins, one of my resolutions has been to try and blog more often and of course start crafting a lot more.The crafting part is coming along just great but the blogging , not so great! So here I am, trying to keep up with my blogging resolution and bring to you one of my first completed projects.

Sweet Irie has asked that I be a part of her blog give aways and I agreed. The theme is "cupcakes" and being that I"m a cupcake lover I got cupcake happy. I'm trying to create a cupcake "basket" which means it will be stuffed w/many cupcake goodies. The first item has been made and its a cupcake journal along with a matching cupcake pen. I think its super but you be the judge? In the works is matching v-day magnets, hair clip and ring. I'm working on the other items but here is what I have so far!

The journal is a regular "notebook" covered in cupcake fabric, accented with Valentine Day ribbon. I added a few heart jewels to make it more fun &cute. The base of the cupcake is actually real cupcake paper cut out to fit the base and curled the ribbon into tiny circles to fluff the cupcake frosting and of course the big circle jewel to represent the cherry on the cupcake......tadahhh!
Here is the matching pen. This is also handmade. I made a cupcake die-cut and stuffed it with cotton,sprinkled matching heart jewels and wavy ribbon. I added a cute v-day bow just for fun.

I'm still working on fixing my pictures. I haven't perfected that yet so I may not give my creations justice!


Ok so now that you saw a little of what to expect, here is another awesome item in the works! Yes, its another design from G. Juarez! Please keep in mind this is not finished but its getting there. Isn't this the cutest???Now you can put away your jewels in your doxie jewelry box! Can't wait to see this finished!



Now I said I would start the year off blogging so here is some more updates! Last blog I bragged about Sweet Irie's shop! So here is the deal! If you log on to her shop,blog about her shop or simply purchase something from her shop you have a chance to win one of her cute wristlets key chains. In case you haven't taken a few minutes to check her blog out, when you're on my main page you will see a link to her blog or log onto and purchase one of her cute key chains. Let me show ya'll the one I got! I can't wait to receive it, its the cutest!!!


Ok, this is it for now... I promise I will start to blog at least once a week even if its for a quick update!
