A Belated Easter Themed Post

It has almost been two months that I have posted.  Sorry that I have been lazy with blogging. I hope that all of you have been doing well.  Since I have not been blogging I have plenty of fun things to posts.  Today I am going to start with what I made with an Easter theme.  First is the card that I made for a swap.  The flower border is from Fawn Lawn and the stamp of the girl is from The Greeting Farm.

Next is an egg shape Hello Kitty card that I made using a die cut.  I die cutted the whiskers and eyes from an old HK die.  I attached the card to a box of HK Hawaiian candy.

Last but not least are the goodies that I put together for Easter gifts. It was fun adding googlie eyes and a magnet to the eggs and carrots that I purchased.

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter a few weeks ago.  My family and I had a wonderful one celebrating the hope that Jesus gives to us through His sacrifice on the cross.  Hope to post again soon. Thanks for stopping by!

Meeting an Author and Suprising Her With a Few Things

It has been busy, busy, busy on my end with not much time to go blog hoping or to post anything on my blog.  I hope that while I was MIA for a bit from blogging that all of you are doing well.  I have been able to craft about every other week to make things for different people that I am visiting/meeting and for friends that are retiring, having a baby, etc. Last week I made for a card for Lisa See, an author that writes awesome books with an Asian theme.  My hubby and I had a chance to go to her book signing at Vromans a week ago.  It was great seeing her again and being able to listen to talk to her about her new book that was just released. Now I can't wait to find some time to read her book. After her talk we got to sample some Korean tea and a cracker while we waited for our ticket to be called for us to meet her and get our book signed.  Here are some pictures of last weeks event along with the card and tin of cookies that I gave to her.

I hope that you will have a wonderful weekend with some time to relax, craft, and spend time with family.  Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time happy crafting and God bless!

A Belated Valentine's Day Post

A week ago during this time I would be making my Valentine's Day treat for family and friends. I decorated heart shaped frames.  I didn't put the erasers that I made into magnets and put googly eyes on the heart.  Now that I think about it I should have.  

I also made HK Valentine's.

Here is a picture of 4 additional gifts that I put together. Picture 1:  More heart shaped magnets using heart erasers. 2. I made magnets by punching a heart and putting a HK sticker on it.  I thought it would be fun to attach them to some of my favorite coconut chocolate. 3. Snacks for some guys co-workers/friends 4. Snacks and a heart shaped magnet for the secretaries at work

It's always fun surprising family and friends with handmade goodies from the heart. I hope that everyone had a LOVEly Valentine's Day.  My family and I had a nice one.  Not only on Valentine's Day, but each day my family and I are truly blessed to have the love of family and friends and best of all love from above from God.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Lunar New Year

For those of you who celebrate Lunar New Year, Gung Hay Fat Choy!  Sorry my wishes are one day late.  Well actually it's not technically late since the holiday is supposed to last for 15 days.  Every year during this time  I make tags or magnets to put on front of rice cracker bags for family and friends as a New Year's gift.  I try to order or find in my stash a stamp that represents the Zodiac character for the year.  This year I ordered a stamp from Dandelion Designs to use and made magnets. I also purchased envelopes from Daiso and put a lucky candy on it to create a lantern.  I filled the envelopes with lucky candy.

Annually my friend and I dress up as "twins" on Chinese NY wearing the Lunar NY t-shirt from California Adventure.

Before ending this post I wanted to share with you some pictures from the Lunar New Year's Festival at California Adventure.

The festival got us all pumped up to celebrate Chinese NY. We can' wait to go back to try more try more onolicious and cute food and maybe see the show for a third time.  Yes the show is awesome! We saw it twice on the day that we went. Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

A Very Belated Christmas Post

Happy New Year Blogland Friends!  I hope that you all of you had a wonderful Christmas and is having a nice 2019 so far.  My apologies that I have been MIA since Thanksgiving.  When I was available to blog I was usually too tired.  Although Christmas is over I still wanted to share with you the tag that I made for our gifts. Each year I make a tag that has a religious meaning to it.  This year I decided to make a wreath using a scallop punch, a circle punch, and my gold pearl pen.

I also made a few other items.  I added googlie eyes to these magnets for two friends using wood pieces from the dollar bin from Le Target.

I purchased these "cupcake" socks for friends and put a topper on it.

Here are the handmade cards that I received.  All of them are fabulous. I always admire people that make their Christmas cards and get them out on time. I don't make Christmas cards and I am already in a rush to get them out.  LOL!

A Belated Thanksgiving Post

Happy Belated Thanksgiving!  I hope that all of you had a blessed time celebrating. My family and I had a memorable Thanksgiving.  Before I share about what we did I am going to share with you what I made as my Thanksgiving gifts this year.
Each holiday I like to surprise family and friends with a little handmade gift.  I always pray that God will use what I make to bless their day and to remind them what a blessing they are to me.  I am grateful for the people that He has placed in my life each day but especially during Thanksgiving. God has used each o them to minister to me and to help me be the person that I am today. As for our Thanksgiving we had some pre-Thanksgiving fun.  We spent a few days in to Vegas.  We had lots of fun but are glad to be home to breath the fresh air.  There was much so much smoking there.  Despite all the smoking we had fun eating Hawaiian food (We ate HI food on all 3 days.),
eating at one of Gordan Ramsey's restaurants,
and visiting the amazing rock formations at Red Rock and Valley of Fire.
On Thanksgiving Day my hubby and I surprised our kids with tickets to watch Ralph Wrecked the Internet at El Capitan.  We were happy to get fourth row center tickets with purchasing tickets a day before the showing.  We were super excited to get to take pictures with Ralph and Penelope since they are only there on selected dates. We loved the movie and enjoyed eating popcorn from our kawaii popcorn buckets.  It was great to enjoy a sundae to celebrate Mickey's birthday.

On Thanksgiving evening we had a delicious dinner at my SIL and BIL's house.  Before ending this post I would like to take some time to thank the Lord for each of you my blogging friends that take time to see what I have to share. It is my prayer that through reading my blog that you will sense God's love through what I share about family, friends, and my crafting and one day want to experience His love too. Have wonderful weekend!  Happy shopping!

Tea or Coffee

My good friend and Dori and I were paired for the September tea swap.  It was optional to make a card with the theme "coffee" or "tea." Both of us choose to make a tea themed card.  I made this easel card for her with a panda because she likes pandas.

I sent her panda themed RAK.  I took a picture of a few of the items that I sent to her.

This is the cool card that she sent to me with a purple background (She remembered my favorite color.)

and some of the thoughtful and delicious (Inside the envelope that she made is a bag of M&Ms.) items that she sent to me.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you will have a wonderful weekend.  I am looking forward to mine.  :)  Stay tune to see I will be up too.
