A new week!

Unlike most people I don't hate Mondays. I like the possibility of a brand new week ahead.
I have lots to do these days. I have a Drs. appointment tomorrow, I have to go renew my driver's license, create more pieces for Handmade by ANILU, I want to go to the movies and see Dan in Real Life and send out my first ever circle journal!!

The girls from Work In Progress' DT are gonna be my first cj participants and I am so excited!!
I used a little 6x6 Heidi Swapp mini and SEI paper. I kinda like the way it came out :)

Here are some of the new pieces I added to Etsy ... I love the color of these pearls and it's just a perfect necklace for fall.
The red coral branch necklace is my favorite piece by far. I sooo want one...

Another thing I've wanted to do for a long time was make a page about my BFF Barb. I loved playing with this Prima paintables paper from Studio Calico's October kit. I love how it turned out and I hope she likes it too. I just have to do a little journaling and, voila!
Isn't she beautiful?!?! The best part is that she is beautiful inside AND out. She is my support in hard times and my scrap buddy extraordinaire. I don't know what I'd do without her.
Love ya', Barb!!!

Last, but not least, like many, I am into felt and stitching in my pages. I love the texture and dimension it gives to a page. This is a little detail on a LO I did last week.

I'm off to start the day and get stuff done around the house. Have a wonderful start of the week!!

This is what my desk looks like, I am having a blast with this kit!

I also want to say a BIG HUGE THANK YOU to my dear friend Paola, in Mexico City. She sent me the most delish package full of beads and scrap goodies, even though she should be thinking only abut her impending nuptials!!
You are the best ever. Gracias!!

I have to clean, again, so I'm off.

Have the best Thursday ever. The Office is on tonight, woohoo!!

Well, color me happy!!!

Look who's a fan of Handmade by ANILU!!!!! Yes, that is Miss Ali Edwards herself, with my dear friend Vanessa (at CKU Orlando, just a few days ago) wearing one of my necklaces.

She was my very first Etsy customer and I could not be happier. All my dear friends who have become customers, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

For those who wanted to know, these two necklaces are back in the shop.

Come back tomorrow, I'll have peeks at Cupcake Scrapshop's Novemeber kit and you have to see it!!

Happy Wednesday!

My little Mexican American...

Could she be any cuter?!?!?

Today she has a function at school for cultural diversity and she had to dress the part.

It cracks me up how she poses for all the pics and wants to see the results immediately!

I'm off to finish cleaning this house and then I want to catch a movie.
Later, I'm going to barb's to scrap and I have new goodies to scrap with, so I'm very excited.

I'll post peeks on Monday...

Have a cool weekend!!

Oh, how I loved...

playing with this month's Cupcake kit . Too bad for you it's already sold out. It was the only place to get your hands on October Afternoon papers.
The mini kit is still available, so hurry up!!

Here is my work for this month...

I spent the whole afternoon yesterday making jewelry and listening to music. I did some very nice stuff that will be up on my Etsy shop later today.

My dad's back from Mexico today and I'm having lunch with Barb so I'm off to get ready.

Peace, love and a happy Tuesday!

A very productive weekend.

I want to start by saying a BIG THANK YOU!! To all the gals who have become clients, thank you so much. I know you will love and enjoy your jewelry as much as I loved making it for you.

Friday I spent the afternoon at Barb's, scrapping. I made 2 LO I really love and I am gonna submit them for pub for the first time ever. Yes, I am a pub virgin!! At least until the spring when my work appears on Crystal Jeffrey Rieger's book (!!!!!!).

My dear and competitive friend from Studio Calico, Emily, is pushing me to do this, and I am getting very excited about it.

I have been checking the calls for pages, and I have some I can use right now!!

I spent all Saturday shopping for shipping supplies and working hard on creating more pieces for Handmade by ANILU on Etsy.

Here are a couple of the new pieces I just uploaded to the store.

I will keep adding to it every day so, keep checking back often.

I am off to watch all the Sunday season premieres. I am so excited about Brothers And Sisters. Love that show.
Dexter's also premiering tonight. One of my faves too. How freaky is it???

Have a great week!
