New Things to Come

I'm excited to see what the new year has to bring! :) If you're headed to a New Year's Eve party, here's a fun and easy way to wrap up a gift for the hostess.

Handmade Stocking Stuffers

A while back, my husband was experimenting with soapmaking. It was fun for a day but he soon realized he wasn't going to turn it into a hobby. He made a few batches and that was it. He considered tossing his only soaps but I decided to package them as tiny gifts as not to let them go to waste. Now this post will always remind us that he randomly made soap one day.

Desktop Wallpaper: Popsicles

With summer here, the days have been heating up. My craving for popsicles has inspired me to create
a desktop wallpaper free to download. I hope you enjoy your weekend! :)

Mini Envelopes

Don't go throwing away your old birthday bag fillers...reuse that tissue paper by scrunching it into a ball for a more uniform texture. Now it's ready to be folded into mini envelopes and much more.

More Tiny Origami Confetti

There has been so much to celebrate lately, from birthdays to birth announcements, that I decided to make more tiny origami confetti to spread a bit of happiness. They fit great in cards or tucked away 
in a friend's notebook for a nice surprise. I had tons of fun making these as much as I did for 

DIY: Handmade Tags

Here's a fun way to spread some valentine love...handmade tags for that special someone. Use them as gift tags, book markers or wear the string as a simple, braided bracelet.  :)


I've been thinking a lot of my visits to Asturias, Spain, which were years ago and long overdue. It's just so beautiful there! If you ever have a chance, you must see the green hills, cobblestone streets and try their amazing food. A few that I can't live without...fabada, tortilla española, pote asturiano, chipirones, pulpo, jamón and aceitunas con anchoas. I've been quite inspired by my summer memories of a luscious green Asturias that I picked up a pen and went to work. :) Although, I must say, I do also love bundling up for their rainy days and winter snow. :)
