Ballet Teachers Gifts

This is the reason why I have been missing a couple of days, I have been busy making some ballet teachers gifts for my daughters ballet teachers, I made six of them in total, so I was pretty busy.

I made some 'homemade bath salts' from a 'recipe' I had found earlier, had enough left for me to use some, so one of these days I will be soaking!!! After they were doneI put them in clear cellophane bags I had bought at Michaels.

I bought some tea tins from Papertrey Inc, for these gifts, the paper is from their Everyday Blessings Collection, I used it to cover the tins, used some ribbon from my stash to tie it all together. The tag in the tin is stamped with Boxes, Bags, and Tags from PTI as well.

Little candle was made with a Michaels votive candle holder, used the sticky strip and applied some beads on it, tied with a white ribbon, from my stash as well. Shredded some tissue paper, put some in a clear cellophane bag, tied it with gold thread.

Card made with leftover paper from PTI, mounted in a light blue cs, and darker blue one for the sentiments. Stamp Set from I am so Glad by Clearly Wodsworth.

It is all bagged in a white paper bag I had bought some time ago, which I stamped with the same PTI set, Boxes, Bags & Tags.



Esta es la razon por la cual no he estado aqui por varios dias, he estado ocupada haciendo regalos para las maestras de baile de mi hija, hice seis de ellos en total, estaba bien ocupada.

Hice sales de baño en la casa, la receta era una que habia encontrado anteriormente, me quedo suficiente para mi uso personal, asi que uno de estos dias las uso, a ver que tal son. Depues que las hice las puse en una bolsita de celofan que habia comprado en Michaels y la amarre con una cinta de mi coleccion.

Habia comprado unas cajitas de Papertrey Inc, para estos regalos, el papel que use para decorarlas es de la collecion de Everyday Blessings de PTI tambien. Use cinta de mi coleccion para amarrarlo todo junto. El tag en la cajita esta estampado con un set de PTI que se llama Boxes, Bags and Tags.

La pequeña velita es un candle holder que compre en Michaels, use el sticky strip para pegarle los beads, la amarre con una cinta blanca de mi coleccion. Triture papel de tissue que tenia, puse la velita con papel triturado en una bolsita de celofan, amarrada con un hilo color oro.

La tarjeta esta hecha con el papel que me sobro de PTI, montada en un cs azul claro, y azul oscuro para los sentimientos. La cinta tambien de mi coleccion. El set que use es I am so Glad de Clearly Wordsworth.

Todo esta puesto en una bolsa de papel blanca que tenia de hacia un tiempo, la cual estampe con el set de PTI Boxes, Bags, & Tags.

I love this set a lot, I know it is retired, but before it did I got it because it reminds me of my dd. I made this card, the other night when I was so afraid that anything could happen to her...

Sometimes when I feel like that, I get my creativity back...CRAZY, I know!!! But I think it turned out beautiful! Enjoy.

Me encanta este set, se que esta retirado, pero antes de que se retirara, lo compre, me recuerda a mi dd. Hice esta tarjeta, las otras noches cuando vivi tanto miedo, pensando que algo le podia pasar a ella.

Need to keep busy

I need to keep my brain busy....I am actually feeling sick again with another cold! Talk about stress taking a toll...

This card although very simple is very cute...I used two of the new stamps I got from TAC, His Angels and Nurture Your Soul. I did the watercolor technique, which I really like to do because I love the results. I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, also a very cool paper I had bought a while back it is like metal, but it is sticky on one side, so you don't need to add any adhesive to it.



Necesito mantener mi cabeza ocupada....Estoy sintiendome enferma otra vez con otro resfriado! El estress esta haciendo de las suyas...

Esta tarjeta es bien sencilla y bien linda...Use dos de mis stamps nuevos que recibi de TAC, His Angels, y Nurture Your Soul. Hice la tecnica de watercolor, la cual me gusta usar, me encantan los resultados. Use el folder Swiss Dot de Cuttlebug, tambien un papel que compre hace un tiempo atras, es metal, pero con adhesivo en un lado, asi que no tienes que añadir ningun tipo de adhesivo para pegarlo a la tarjeta.

Pretty Flower

I loved this stamp since I first saw it, it is a TAC stamp called Gerbera Daisy. I decided to play with it a little bit, and I think it turned out pretty cool....I colored it with my new Impress markers from TAC as well, did the watercolor technique and voila! I used some of my old, old glitter on the center to give it some sparkle...All the paper used is from my old paper stash, the lighter green I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, I think it gives it a very delicate look. That's all there is to it. Thanks for looking!


Me encanto este stamp desde la primera vez que lo vi, es un TAC stamp llamado Gerbera Daisy. Decidi jugar un rato y me parece que se ve bien bonito. Lo coloree con mis nuevos markers Impress de TAC tambien, hice la tecnica de watercolor y voila! Use de mis papeles viejos, y alguna escarcha que tenia de hace mucho, mucho tiempo. En el papel verde claro use el folder de Cuttlebug llamado Swiss Dot, me parece que le da un look un poco delicado. Eso es todo para lograr esta tarjeta. Gracias por la visita!



Happy Mothers Day

I got this from a friend on an email...I think it it beautiful, so here it is for all those creative and non creative mothers out there!

Happy Mothers Day!



If you send this to just one person, it should make

it all the way around the world by Mother's Day.

This is for the mothers who have sat up

all night with sick toddlers in their arms,

wiping up barf laced with Oscar Mayer

wieners and cherry Kool-Aid saying,

"It's okay honey, Mommy's here."

Who have sat in rocking chairs for hours on end

soothing crying babies who can't be comforted.

This is for all the mothers who show up at

work with spit-up in their hair and milk stains

on their blouses and diapers in their purses.

For all the mothers who run carpools and

make cookies and sew Halloween costumes.

And all the mothers who DON'T.

This is for the mothers who gave birth to

babies they'll never see. And the mothers

who took those babies and gave them homes.

This is for the mothers whose price less art

collections are hanging on their refrigerator doors.

And for all the mothers who froze their buns

on metal bleachers at football or soccer games

instead of watching from the warmth of their cars.

And that when their kids asked,
"Did you see me, Mom?"

they could say, "Of course, I wouldn't

have missed it for the world," and mean it.

This is for all the mothers who yell at their kids

in the grocery store and swat them in despair

when they stomp their feet and scream for ice cream before dinner.

And for all the mothers who count to ten instead,

but realize how child abuse happens.

This is for all the mothers who sat down with

their children and explained all about making

babies. And for all the (grand) mothers who

wanted to, but just couldn't find the words.

This is for all the mothers who go

hungry, so their children can eat.

For all the mothers who read "Goodnight,

Moon" twice a night for a year. And then

read it again, "Just one more time."

This is for all the mothers who taught

their children to tie their shoelaces before

they started school. And for all the mothers

who opted for Velcro instead.

This is for all the mothers who teach their sons

to cook and their daughters to sink a jump shot.

This is for every mother whose head turns

automatically when a little voice calls "Mom?"

in a crowd, even though they know their

own offspring are at home or even away

at college or have their own families.

This is for all the mothers who sent their kids

to school with stomach aches, assuring them

they'd be just FINE once they got there, only

to get calls from the school nurse an hour later

asking them to please pick them up. "Right away!"

This is for mothers whose children have gone

astray, who can't find the words to reach them.

For all the mothers who bite their lips until they

bleed when their 14 year olds dye their hair green.

For all the mothers of the victims of

recent school shootings, and the mothers

of those who did the shooting.

For the mothers of the survivors,

and the mothers who sat in front of their TVs in horror,

hugging their child who just came home from school, safely.

This is for all the mothers who taught their

children to be peaceful, and now pray

they come home safely from a war.

What makes a good mother anyway?

Is it patience? Compassion? Broad hips?
The ability to nurse a baby, cook dinner, and

sew a button on a shirt, all at the same time?

Or is it in her heart?
Is it the ache she feels when she

watches her son or daughter disappear

down the street, walking to school alone

for the very first time?

The jolt that takes her from sleep to

dread, from bed to crib, at 2 A.M. to put

her hand on the back of a sleeping baby?

The panic, years later, that comes again

at 2 A.M. when she just wants to hear

their key in the door and know they

are safe again in her home?

Or the need to flee from wherever she is

and hug her child when she hears news

of a fire, a car accident, a child dying?

The emotions of motherhood are

universal and so our thoughts are for

young mothers stumbling through diaper

changes and sleep deprivation...

And for mature mothers learning to let go.

For working mothers and stay-at-home mothers;

single mothers and married mothers;

mothers with money, mothers without.

This is for you all. For all of us...

Hang in there. In the end we can

only do the best we can. Tell our children

every day that we love them.. And pray

and never stop being a mother...

Please pass along to all the mothers in your life.

"Home is what catches you when

you fall - and we all fall."


More Mother's Day Cards

I am finally done with cards for Mother's Day...went to the post office yesterday and mailed them...(yipee!!!) Came home watched the news and found out....the postage went up on Monday....(:()...What does it mean for the cards I send....I don't know...They may be coming back to me for more postage....I thought I was sending them on time....

This is that one set I loved since it came out it is called From the Garden, I stamped it on Watercolor Paper using Lavender Lace ink, colored it with markers! For the sentiment I used Warm Words.

If you change the colors, you would have a completely different card...I think it is a very versatile flower stamp set!



Finalmente termine con mis tarjetas para el Dia de las Madres...fui a el correo y las envie....(yipee!!!) Llego de regreso a la casa y me siento a ver las noticias y me entero....que los sellos de correo subieron de precio el lunes....(:()...Que quiere decir se....Quizas las tarjetas regresan a mi....para que le ponga mas sellos....Y yo pense que las estaba enviando a tiempo......

Este es el set que me encanto desde que salio, se llama From the Garden (SU!), lo estampe en Watercolor paper usando tinta Lavender Lace, lo coloree con markers! El sentimiento es de un set que se llama Warm Words.

Si le cambias los colores, tienes una tarjeta completamente distinta...creo que es un stamp de flores muy versatil!
