Rachel's Felties

Rachel, my 11 yr old daughter, was busy tonight making 2 more felties - one was a panda bear and the other a mouse with sunglasses and an ice cream cone. Her free time is always spent making some type of stuffed animal.

Here's a collection of adorable items she's made in the past few weeks.

Tonights creations came from the book "Felties" by Nelly Pailloux.
My favorites: potsticker, doll in polka dot dress and sock animals. It's so much fun to see her creations.

Halloween is Here

Last night, my daughter Rachel and I made this Halloween gingerbread house. My niece gave this kit to the kids and we had so much fun decorating it...we were good and didn't eat any of the candy either.

Here's a few more decorations in our house...Lana bought me this house kit - we put together.

I also wanted to post how the felted scarf turned out - it was an amazing process of laying out the felt pieces - rolling it over a rolling pin, in soapy water and rolling back and forth for one hour.

Thanks Diana for this great project.

My First Post

I had a great day celebrating my sister, Diana's birthday with my other sisters, our niece - Natalie and even my daughter, Rachel, joined us this time. Unfortunately, one sister was out sick. We did shopping in the morning, lunch at my house and then of course some crafting. Lunch was from a great take out Mexican restaurant. It's always fun catching up with the sisters - full of good stories and laughter. Sorry, no pics of Lana - she was nice enough to take Chris shopping for a shirt to wear to the home coming dance tonight. Ended the evening having another bday event with my dear friend at Marzanos.

Here's a couple pics from craft session...

Also, have to share a pic of a fabulos Phillip Lim dress I bought today.

Thanks Lisa S. for encouraging me to start a blog...and to Rachel for showing me how.
