Trash 2 Treasure {Thursday}

I looked at the office supply stores for a pen holder that I would like for my new desk at work but couldn't find anything that I loved at all. So I made this. I think it is so pretty and easy to make with fabric remnant and findings.

Trash 2 Treasure {Thursday}

My sister in law gave me a bag of my niece Trista's old halloween costumes and some play dress up clothes. This Minnie Mouse dress had ripped seams so I cut it up and made some lolliop flowers. I love when I am able to re-use something and make it into something fun or useful.

Really I am speechless. I want to cry. It's gorgeous and so me! Thank you!! I can't wait to see you soon and meet Gabriella & Charlotte in person. So grateful for this beautiful gift! And even though I wanted to try wordless wednesday I have to express my huge gratitude :)

The attention to detail is fantastic.

True {Inspiration}

I must have a guardian angel. God sent me this beautiful child, and I feel so complete now that I have this baby boy in my life. I took this image back in October, True had just started school. He was having a really hard time. He didn't know any of the kids, he was scared and would cry and say he just wanted to stay with mama & daddy. When I went to pick him up, he would be sitting all alone on a bench looking at his feet. I just wanted to cry and take him out of school, keep him with me all the time. But, I knew deep down inside it would get better and it did. On this day, when I picked him up he told me Mama I cried for you, but I had fun today. His sweet smile, his brave little self. I am so proud of him, he is growing into a great little boy. He says the most interesting things, he prays at night and has the best sense of humor. People say my images look happy. They are happy images because I have this inspiration in my heart. This child is my light. He makes everyday with him the happiest I could ask for if I can be with him. I am so grateful.

Ariana is Two {Monkey Themed Party}

Ariana is such a sweetie. It's awesome to see her growing up! Her mama really outdid herself at this party with lots of help from her BFF Beeper. We made a little photobooth with lots of props. We had so much fun!

Erica {loves} Crafts

I went shopping in Downtown LA recently. I stumbled into a store that had the most gorgeous beads. I found these really beautiful stone skull beads in pastel colors. I had to get them and share them with my BFF Kay who lives in Colorado. I can't wait to make more earrings and a few necklaces! Here is my first pair I have made from the strand I bought. I also used swarovski beads that I have had for a while. My mind is spinning with ideas. I also can't wait to see what Kay makes too! As soon as I make more I will be sure to post.
