My working Sunday!

Hi to all!
Few days ago my colleague asked me to make them some things that she would like to give away as Chrsitmas Gifts...
She saw my Eco Heart Collapsible Bags and asked me 3 of them...
One was the Sheeps one as you can see in my shop.
Then she told me that she has a friend that love, love, love the green color and so...I made the one you can see in the first collage.

Then, she needs another for a friend that loves sunflower and it is:
Finally...she tolds me that she needs something really cute for a young girl, a lip balm holder that is soooo girly...
So...I made this:

What do you think?
I hope that she loves them!
Thanks for reading!!!
Happy week!!!

Pancakes for breakfast!!!

Hi and Good Sunday to all!
This morning for breakfast...I cooked pancakes!!!!
Well...I have to say that when I see them in American movies...well...I would like to be there because I know that they are sooo yummy and...I love Maple Syrup!

So...when a friend of mines sent me the recipe some days ago...I immediately decided that I would love to try them!A
And this morning both me and hubby had more free time for enjoy they are!

And...they really tasted soooo delicious!!!!
So...if someone of you would like to try them there is the recipe:
280 gr. flavour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
4 teaspoon melted butter
0,5 Lt milk
Put all the ingredients together into the mixer and mix them well, if you don't have the mixer, you can do it by hand.
You must end with a "cream".
At this point, put a bit of oil (or butter if you prefere) in a pot, wait a bit that is hot and put about 3 spoons of the pancakes "cream" in it.
Cook for about 1 minute (or until you can see some bubbles), then turn it and cook for another minute the other side.
And...voilà...your pancakes are ready!
Bring your maple syrup and...ENJOY YOUR MEAL!!!!!

New in my shop!!!

Hi to all!

It's Saturday Night and I'm here in my couch...playing a bit with the computer and looking around because hubby is watching soccer on television...PUAH...!!!

Well...lately I've added some new things in my Etsy Shop and I would love to share them with you!

I would like to introduce you my new line of Eco Reusable Heart Collapsible Bags, they are so fun, useful and they make great gifts!

Ok...this is the one with the sheeps, here you can see how it looks like when it's closed:

It looks like a little cute stuffed heart!

As you can see, the whole bag collapses into it's case...

and...voilà!here we have the bag opened and as you can see, it's a really big size so you can use it as a grocery bag, fill it with books and use it for the library, go with it to the gym or the park...the possibilities are endless!!!!

You can find more in my Etsy Shop!
Hope you like them!!!
Have a great Saturday!!!!

A Creative week end

Hi to all my friends!!!
As I told you in my previous post, last week end a friend of mine come here to spend the whole week end with me!

We usually do it once a year or twice if we are good enought to combine our busy lives...LOL!!!

Our week ends are creatives week ends as usually we choose one or more projects to sew together.
So, in the pic above, you can see me (on the chair busy sewing) and Luciana in the middle of one of our projects.

I chose a very cute Santa's Garland from one of the books of Nancy Halvorsen (Art to Heart) and she chose a cute panel with an unusual Xmas Tree made of Xmas Decorations.

She didn't finished it yet can't see the pics but I hope to see it finished soon.
Then we sew 2 "mannequins" and 2 little hearts bags.
As you can see, the mannequins still need the support...mine is still in the garage...hubby is working on it...he cut it on the wood, glue it and now he's waiting that the flatting will dry...
Hopefully it will be ready in a couple of days so I'll post another pic of the finished mannequin!

The week end was really soooo nice: we chatted so much, laughed and...sewed a lot!

Sunday morning we also had a little disappointing iron, the one I only use for my sewing and crafting...stopped to work...
So...we were in the middle of our mannequins without an iron...GRRRRRR!!!

Outside the weather was so cold and it rained a lot, we brought Luciana's car and we had a LONG tour...VISITING all the super markets here around for find a new iron...
After more than an hour of this "fabulous" tour...we found it and so...we come back home to sew...LOL!!!

I can't wait for our next "meeting".
Chatting together, we noticed that we both have tons of fabrics scraps, I have a box that I can't close in any way and every day...I add some piece of fabrics...
So...we decided that our next project surely will be sewing something with all our scraps...
She spoke me about the Brown Bag Quilts and I loved the idea immediately...

If you never heard about Brown Bag Quilts (like me before she explained me it...) it means that you put all your scraps in brown bags (like those you find at the grocery store), you can divide your scraps by color or simply by "tone":light, medium and dark fabrics and then put them in different bags.
When you'll start your project, you don't have to choose every fabric, if you need a medium one, you put your hand in the bag and bring a medium fabric, then you do the same for the light and dark and you use what you got from the bag...
In this way you'll can end with...a very beautiful quilt but...why not...also a very ugly one...LOL!!!
But...this is the most interesting and very fun part of this "method"'s not up to you...
What do you think of it?
Did you ever tried it?
You can apply it not only for quilts but also for scrap booking and any craft...'ll looking forward to try it with my friend!!!!
