MayasKalupi Etsy Store

GIFT SET – Mini Coloring Wallet and Your Princess Purse & Mini Coloring Wallet – Sunflowers in White – Wendy Bentley fabric – Notepad and Crayons included

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Armee on-line at her Etsy Store called MayasKalupi’s. Here is a little about Armee in her words.

“I have enjoyed creating crafts since I was a child. I remember when I was in 4th grade I used to buy plastic headbands, embellish them and then sell to my classmates. My mother taught me sew when I was 10 years old. My 2 sisters and I would sew baby shorts, shirts, pajamas, etc. for our my mother during the summer so we could buy special treasures, like stationery, plastic wallet, stickers, a new pencil case…I was proud of my hard work and accomplishments at such a young age! Years later, now, I’m a stay home mom to my adorable baby girl who also sews and sells her own stuff to earn extra money. My husband and I moved here in the US from the Philippines on March of 2007. I now consider U.S our home but still only next to my native land.

SALAMAT SA LAHAT! (Thank you to all!)”

Thank you Armee, for sharing your story. Here is a link to her Etsy Store site:

Blossom Lane Clutch from Bluecalla at Etsy

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Celine on-line after seeing a beautiful clutch she made with my Blossom Lane fabric through Timeless Treasures. Celine’s Etsy store is called Bluecalla. She lives in Toronto, On Canada.
Here is a little about Celine in her words: “I’m a total sewing addict! I started by sewing clothes for my kids and after receiving many compliments, I bought myself a fantastic sewing machine and the rest is history! I have been able to quit my day job as a web developer and I now sew handbags for a living. I recently added some quilts to my shop – these are made by my mother with scraps from my bags. She has been sewing all her life and taught me a lot!”Thanks for sharing you story, Celine.

Mini Owls

Hi Everyone,
Since I have been showing all my Night Owl Pillows, I thought I would show the Mini Owls I made too. I added the apple so you could see the scale of them. I think they would make cute keychains or even ornaments for a Christmas tree. Imagine having a whole tree made of little owls with all your fabric scraps that you just can’t throw away. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

Summer Salad

I thought I would share one my husband’s and my favorite salad that we love to have in the summer. Garden tomatoes, fresh basil, buffalo mozzarella medallions covered in Cardini’s Balsamic Vinaigrette…yum…yum.

Marblehead, Ohio

We finally got away on a vacation with the kids…it kind of feels like the first official one ever. The drive was about four hours North from Northern Kentucky. This trip was longer than any usual trip we have taken with Chet and Chloe. Are we there yet? ….every kid figures out asking that question, don’t they? My husband, Tony is holding up the oldest lighthouse on the Great Lakes in Marblehead, Ohio. We also took a ferry over to Put-n-Bay and spent the day there. Here are some sweet moments throughout the trip. I can’t wait to go again. The next time we go, we will definitely rent a place with a kitchen since Chet reminded me that “this food doesn’t taste like the food from home.”
