Hey everyone,

Yes! Friday is here and let's enjoy the hot weather shall we? :)  I heard that it's been really hot in the East coast for a few weeks.  I'm so happy that summer has arrived here in the West coast! Yippie.  I love the hot weather and the sun.  

I spent the afternoon coming up with some new needle felting friends.  I also made a delicious summery pasta dish, but you'll have to wait until the next post =p.  Take care friends.  Have a wonderful weekend.

How is everyone spending their weekend?

Needle Felting: OWLS!!

Hey everyone,

Wow, it's been a long time since my last post.  I apologize.  It's been crazy these few days and I was finally able to sit down to make these little cuties.  A long time ago my friend who is crazy about owls had suggested I make one.  When I tried back in the day, my owls looked hideous hahah.  I think these guys look a lot better now! Very happy and friendly right?

I hope you like them! You can find them in my Etsy shop if you're interested. 
Take care, and stay tuned for my next post.  I'll try to post more frequently!

<3 ya,

June 2013 Birchbox

Hey everyone,

How's it going? Guess what I got in the mail today?! My June Birchbox.  I'm so happy it didn't get lost in the mail.  The post office some how lost my April and May Birchbox (urgh, fists in the air).  I was so upset! The first time it said it was delivered but I'm guessing it got misplaced in the wrong mail box.  Then in May, my box just got lost at the Redmond post office for 2 weeks.  Luckily, the customer service at Birchbox is absolutely top notch.  It's amazing how great customer service can go a long way.  Anyways, enough talking, now for pictures.  This month is the new re branding of Birchbox.  They have a new logo and everything.  To celebrate their new logo they even gave all their customers a bottle of nail polish.  Some how I knew I would get their cream/white color.  Why? Because it was the most boring color.  :| I think they had a coral, lavender, mint and purple? Ah, I don't remember.  Anyways, they included a set of post cards which I thought was neat.  I'm really digging the mint green they used on the tiny box.  So pretty ^^.

 Overall, I really enjoyed the deluxe size of shampoo and also the face scrub.  I've been shopping around for a good face scrub after moving to the US so I'm glad I got this sample.  I'll just need to give it a try first.  It smells like lemons.  The perfume smells nice too, but I've never been a big fragrance person.  I'm glad we can now limit the number of perfumes we get in a year.  I think this is one of the best boxes I've gotten so far.  I didn't post April or May boxes because I felt it wasn't really different.  May's box wasn't the best because I just got whatever box they had left as a replacement.  I think I got a broken eye pencil (they're resending a replacement), cucumber sun screen, and a bottle of hair spray protector.

Take care for now, I'll post some new needle felting projects soon!

Needle Felting: Baby Duck

Hey everyone,

Happy Friday.  Yes, finally the weekend again.  Today I decided to do some needle felting and I came up with this baby duck.  I was actually inspired by a rice ball at the Japanese supermarket.  I did a little photo shoot and I hope you enjoy. What should I name this little friend?

Take care!

Card Making: Pennant Inspired Cards

Hey everyone,

Hope you're having a great Tuesday.  Not much on my end, except we've been having really beautiful weather lately.  I'm currently working on a few new needle felting projects for my Etsy store.  I tried wet needle felting for these projects, so I'm just waiting for them to dry! Hopefully it will work out and I'll have 2 new creations tomorrow (I'm keeping my fingers crossed!).

Today, I decided I was in the mood for card making.  I came up with these 2 cards.  I really love pennants so I decided to make my cards focused around them  I'm hoping to stock up on more card stock as I only have purple card stock in my collection (so sad... :P).  I also decided to try machine sewing on them as well.  I think they came out pretty well.  Mr C was surprised you could sew on paper, but I knew my Singer could do it :D.   What do you guys think?


Take care,
