Friday... Sneaky Peeky

Here you have it. A sneaky peeky of this evening's listings...visit to see more. Also, stop by Sunday for a sneaky peeky of tomorrow's listings.

This is my second year creating these little calendars. They make great gifts for family, friends, co-workers and teachers. I created quite a few and there are no duplicates, this adds an extra touch of uniqueness to them. I do however, have certain amount of calendars saved for custom work. So, if have a special request...just let me know....Custom Orders Welcome.

And about my auctions, I do most of my listings after my daughter goes to bed, and when I come to stopping point with the laundry or dishes -or whatever else might be going on-, I escape to my studio -my kingdom, my paradise- to start my listings, SO...sometimes I run behind...My goal is 10pm EST. Let's see how things go this coming week.

Buenas Noches

New Banner

Well, I have to toot my own horn here...Let me explain, It has been a while that I've been wanting to create my own banner and it all came together today -A special Thanks goes out to my Honey, who helped me with the final details...Thanx!-. And there you have it Ladies and Gents...My very own custom banner...Ooooh, this makes me SO HAPPY! I used an image of one of my recently created paper bears holding a candy corn, which is actually the title of a two page set that is currently listed on eBay. Any who...I likey my banner!

On the other hand, today was a good productive day. I am in the process of preparing my pictures to start listing this evening, however, some of you will get a "skneaky peeky" of my new items before they post on eBay. So, off I go to edit my pictures...Ciao Amigos!

Lady Nora & Sir Angus Custom Order

Dear Patricia, here they are...Lady Nora Kate and Sir Angus James...ready to wish their friends a Happy Halloween. It was quite an experience to design these Scotties from "scrach", sketching the image and then making it into these adorable paper piecings -which, I feel turned out pretty cute.- Everything you see on the card front is not "attached", so all pieces can be moved around, if you'd like -I'm always open to suggestions. The spider is made out of foam and was accented with glitter, the bat was also accented with glitter but it's cut out of textured cardstock. The green patterned paper is also glittered and is from K&Company , the small greeting is mounted on foam for dimension and it's matted. The inside of the card will have a matted area for your message and will carry the theme inside as well as on the envelope. The card will be mounted onto heavy white cardstock and therefore, will have a narrow white border all around that will be inked in black to give it a distressed look.

Have a fantabulous Tuesday.-Ana

Halloween Creations & 2009 Calendars

Well, I've been busy and enjoying this amazing rush of creativity that has taken over me...this after some stressful times and a bad case of the "creativity block". Oh, it feels just SO GOOD to have my creative mojo back! I've been scrapping, making cards, designing new classes and writing all new ideas as the come.

Bueno, he estado disfrutando the una gran rafaga de creatividad, despues de pasar por un tiempo algo estresante y una mala dosis de "mente en blanco". Se siente TAN BIEN el tener de vuelta el toque creativo. He estado "scrapping", haciendo tarjetas, disenando clases nuevas y anotando ideas nuevas segun van llegando.

Every year around this time, I make calendars and this year I made them bigger...yep. They are 5x7 in size and have a magnetic back, so they can go on file cabinets, lockers or the fridge. These make such great gifts for family, friends, co-workers and anybody who's special to you and on your holiday list. As a matter of fact, I'm making one of these calendars for everyone on my holiday list! I'm currently taking CUSTOM ORDERS, I can make these in practically ANY THEME. I love how this one turned out...and look at those eyes...just adorable!

With Halloween just around the corner, I created a set of 12x12 pages (one shown above) and, believe me...this picture does it...
ABSOLUTELY NO JUSTICE...It's is SO colorful and glittery in person!
Then I just had to make some cards too...and I can't stop...but I have to...because I will be moving on to the next holiday...he,he.

The card shown above is one of my favorites...I will be posting more Halloween cards for another week and then I'll stop, this so I can move on to other cards that are waiting to be assembled.

Gotta back with more...

The Nielsons

As a regular blog reader, I enjoy meeting new fellow bloggers and read about our wonderful lives as moms, crafters, designers and all of those other titles that make us who we are.

On this day, I learned about the story of this beautiful family, who's lives will never be the same...

(Text from the Nie Recovery site)

On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Stephanie Nielson was in a plane crash with her husband, Christian Nielson, and his flight instructor, Doug Kinnear, near St. Johns, Arizona. Doug Kinnear passed away soon after arriving at the Maricopa County Hospital.
Christian & Stephanie remain in critical condition at Maricopa Burn Center. Christian has sustained burns on over 30% of his body. His wife Stephanie’s body was burned over 80%.
For the past four years, Stephanie has welcomed us into her charming abode through the NieNie Dialogues. Far from being a product of creative editing, the Nielson’s don’t just shine through the selective lens of a blog. They are ingenuous examples of family devotion, eternal romance, and Christ centered faith.

I'm not here to judge anyone or to ask any questions...simply to ask for your prayers. Add the Nies and their children to your prayers...Thank You.

Back in the groove...

September is looking pretty good...My little girl started Pre-School, I got back to working on some projects that included Scrapping more of Last years pictures, creating new bears , cards, pages and restocking my eBay store...So far so good...
I will post here my latest creations, So stay tunned.
Yes, Ms. K is officially a student, and nothing makes me happier than knowing that she LOVES going to school! Keep up the good work Ms.K ... We love you!
