I just wanted to share with you the most adorable ribbon sculptures, hair clips and little girl's accessories in this Etsy shop:  Yaya's Accessories

I love the new Party Favors too.  It gives me a lot of ideas of what can be done with Bottle Caps.  My mind is Spinning!

I hope you are all having a great life.  Mine is quite busy but full of joy and happiness watching my daughter grow.

It's inevitable to make bows if you are crafty and have a little girl!

Well yes, here I am making bows for my little princess.  I'm on a roll!  I've been having fun making all these bows and more, I just can't stop.  If you are a craft junkie like I am, beware of getting into this craft.  It is addictive, and what makes it best is the face of your little girl when you try on the clips or bows you've made for her.

Not bad for a beginner, right?

I love Making Jewelry!

I have not made a single piece of jewelry for over two years, except for pasta necklaces, but that doesn't count, or does it?.  That's too much, right?  Well yes, but being the "Stay at Home Slave" of a Two year old just makes you do crazy things like that.  And if that baby had colic, GER... well... lets just say that this is the least of the crazy things I've done in these past couple of years.

I started making some friendship bracelets for my daughter, because she loves jewelry, clothes, shoes and anything wearable.  I just loved toys when I was two.  But hey, that was the perfect opportunity to take the dust off my bead boxes and start creating.

I made this bracelet using some lampwork pastel beads, waxed cotton cord and a Button.  It can be worn as a 3 wraps bracelet or a necklace.

As you can see, I cannot do wire work yet because she wants to help and touch everything I take out for a project, but no complaints here.  I really wish she grows up to be a creative person.

It Seems Like Forever.....

It has been so long since I have not been in my blogger dashboard that it was deleted from my history, yet not my memory.

I am slowly regaining a sense of self, and again having time to be able to nurture myself in a more selfish way.

These 6+ months have been incredible.  There have been so many emotions.  So many rewards, challenges and then some more rewards.

My baby is the best thing that has happened to me.  I thank her daily for choosing me as her mommy and I still melt every time she smiles at me.  Today I was feeding her and she started playing with my bangs while eating.  I cannot describe how much I enjoyed this.

We are doing some late "Spring Cleaning"!  Hahaha... in the middle of summer.  Hope to be back a little again at least some days every week after we are done.  Again, hope but make no promises since the little missy is the boss and I am just a happy servant.

My beads are still in their boxes.  My work bench is not a changing station, that idea never worked but it was full of diapers and baby clothes until a few days ago when we started our cleaning and organizing.  We've been busy bees.

My muse is still in a box where I carefully put her away and has been asking to bet let out for at least one day.  I hope to be able to please her shortly.

It feels good to be back!

One Year....

It has been a year since I started this blog. So many wonderful things have happened throughout this year:

I have made jewelry, experimented with new techniques and materials.

I have made wonderful beading friends along the way. I treasure these nice and sincere friendships more than anything.

I have become a Reiki Master, and have grown. My way of seeing and living life has changed for the better.

I have become pregnant and given birth to a wonderful baby girl. This is why I am not posting since January. I have embarked on the most wonderful trip one can take: motherhood.

I have won many giveaways and hosted a giveaway of my own.

I have helped wonderful friends and have been helped by many more.

I have received many gifts; some in the form of an email, a friendship, just a note to say hello. These simple things that life gives on a daily basis are the true holders of happiness.

I want to thank you all for being there. For reading my posts, for posting and letting me be a part of your beading world and more.

I hope to be back on a more regular basis soon, but I know I still have some adapting and tuning of my time in this new life I now have.

I miss this e-world, but I also know I will be back soon enough, and as soon as it is meant to be.

Thank you for a wonderful year.  Many happy wishes and blessings. I am looking forward to another year sharing our jewelry, pojects and hopes.

Happy New Year!

May your beading reach new horizons, your life be joyful, and your dreams fulfilled.

I am so grateful for all the things that have come my way this 2010:

I have been blessed by maternity, new and dear friends, losing some of my fears, acquiring wisdom.  I have been inspired by wonderful people, colors and art.  I have been doing what I like and looking forward to continue doing so.

I have been given the gift of happiness.  I have rarely been sad or worried.  I have focused on the small things of life, on being grateful and appreciate every single thing.  To me, this is where true happiness lays.

I cannot but look forward to 2011 that promises great things.  The first and most important being my baby girl (if she hasn't been born by now, probabilities are that she will be in 2011). 

I have been surrounded by love, friendship, support.  All this in a new country where I have found honest and true people that I happily call friends.  What more can I ask?

Thanks to all of you that have been a part of my life this year, I look forward to what 2011 will bring us.
