Well on the lighter side, my best friend gave me a buzz a few days ago asking me for help with her brother's wedding. I will be making invitations & giveaways for that. I guess it's true that when one door closes, another opportunity paves its way in. At least with this I'll get to do what I love & get paid too. Hehe.

It's a case for my ipod shuffle. I found it in my bag & it didn't have a case. Since this gadget is so small, it's quite difficult to search for it inside my bag. That's when I thought of creating the case which was perfect for the challenge. Since the felt is limited to 6x6 inches, a small ipod case will be just right. I stitched two colors of felt together (pink for the front & purple for the inside). I also added a felt flower with a button center & a musical note as embellishments for the inside. The front is embellished with white felt which I cut into a rectangle (with the sentence "I love music") and another one shaped into a circle to make it look like the ipod. I also stamped green flowers on the purple felt which aren't quite visible in the picture (hehe). I stitched the velcro snap ons on the strap of the case. Here's the front view of this project:

Wouldn't it be cute if you receive a letter with a postal stamp like this? I love this picture of Marcie. Her smile is very contagious. I made this LO to look like a postal stamp. =)
Journaling: No matter how tired you are sometimes from running & playing, you never fail to send that sweet smile of yours to everyone. Wherever we go, people adore you simply because they can't resist that adorable smile. Keep it with you always little one. =) xoxo, Mommy
The rules are simple. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Wow lots of things to be thankful for! Mark, Marcie & I heard mass this evening to give thanks for all these wonderful news. August is really looking good to me... maybe these are my advanced presents for my birthday next month.
Hope you all have a blessed Sunday too! :)
Last October was Marcie's first Halloween. We were so excited to dress her up in her cute angel costume. I reused her baptismal gown which was all white. It was a long gown so she was still able to fit it. I had a white ribbon which I used for her headband. The only thing I bought was the angel wings. We took her to the mall for some Trick-or-Treating. She was a crowd favorite. Everyone stopped to glance at her and she had that beautiful angelic smile. Her treat bag was filled up fast because the store tenants adored her, they added extra treats for her. Well she still couldn't eat all those candies at her age but she sure had fun for her first Trick-or-Treat.

The title "Be Creative" was inspired from the challenge posted from One Little Word. Their word for the week is "BE". Since this journal is about art & creativity the title was perfect. Written on the paper strips were more words to "Be"... Unique, Me!, Helpful, Smart, Patient, Organized, Fun!, Inspired, Artistic, Resourceful, Productive, Thankful, Beautiful & Happy. =) Hand-written quote written at the bottom right reads..." Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." - Scott Adams-

I made a short list of things that I have to accomplish for this month. First on the list was to clean & organize my closet. Thank goodness I finally got my “cleaning mode” on! Haha. It took me about 4 hours clearing up a single closet! I didn’t realize (until today) how much clutter was in there. I had to do a lot of sorting too. The old clothes I had in there were piling up & I remembered that sermon from our priest when he said it is shameful to have lots of things stored up & not being used when a lot of people around us barely have anything to wear. So I did my sorting & guess what??? I ended up filling 2 bags of unused clothes which we will surely give out to others and 1 big paper bag full of trash to give away to the garbage men. =)
So here are the before & after photos:
A few hours later:
Well it is better than before right??

I decided to make a simple LO for these pics... Polka dot style! I used polka dotted pattern paper to create the borders. I had loads of foam shaped circles in my stash which I bought years ago so I thought this was the perfect time to use them. I glued different sizes of the circle foam on top of another & used them as embellishments. I used stickers for the word "You're" & topped it with dimensional glaze. The word "Beautiful" was cut from my wishblade & I placed the word on top of a purple ribbon. Under the ribbon were hand written words... "every little piece love". Here's my finished LO:
It's another new year. We welcome 2008 with a small family gathering. A few days from now & you'll be turning 1 already! =) You looked so beautiful in these pictures. You in that cute polka dot outfit with the most beautiful smile. I do hope you'll always stay that way... BEAUTIFUL, inside & out.
