My first ever RAK!!

I had to do something nice to start the year so I have a little RAK for ya.

I have been saving these delicious stamps for a while for this very purpose and they want a new home.



They are HOT, cool ones and they could be yours! The package will include:

- Fontwerks Steelfish small alpha mounted on cling foam
- Heidi Swapp damask clear stamp
- Catslife Press "Here's the story" stamp
- Fontwerks date stamp
- Rhonna Farrer bird clear stamp
- Rhonna Farrer flowers clear stamp

Just leave a message on this post and voila! I'll have Nati pick a name on Monday, January 14th.







I have been working like a maniac creating new stuff for Handmade BY ANILU. I am gonna fill the store with cool stuff very soon, so be on the lookout. I know you will find something you'll love.

I have new wood, Swarovski, and gemstone beads that have me very inspired.


ETA: This is the "Davinie" necklace, custom made for my dear, beautiful, talented friend Davinie!!!!!



This is the Emily necklace and it was made especially for my dear Emily.




This is a custom order for Kristi. I really love how those two colors look together. This is just part of the necklace. She should be the first one to see the whole thing ;)




These are another custom order for Nik. Hope you like them, girlie!!









Before I go, I want to ask you to keep my friend Christine Middlecamp in mind. She is putting her dear husband Eric to rest today, after a long battle wit brain cancer.

She has documented their long and painful journey through her blog and has shown me what strength, grace and unconditional love are.

If you want to do something for her, see this.

My heart and mind will be with her.

These stamps are hot!! My New Year's resolution is to donate $1000 to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation and since I'm a SAHM with no income, I have vowed to not spend any money on craft supplies this year in order to have enough money to donate. These stamps sure are a temptation!!
Thanks!
