Buttons and "Voodoo"

So I've started experimenting with sewing, I've known I'm not very experienced in it but my latest experiments have come out pretty great :) I put together an "anti-valentine's" day doll, with the inspiration and template from craftgawker. It was totally sweet. I also made some button rings just for fun.

Valentine's Fun & Crafts

So Valentine's Day is the next official holiday and of course the perpetually single *cough* me *cough* have trouble knowing exactly what to do for this love-filled holiday. So my idea was to ask my best friend to be my valentine and it turned out to be brilliant :D ! So I made him an epic box of "love" full of ideas from craftgawker. Type in love or heart or valentine and amazing and simple ideas come up. The contents of the box include a card booklet made from playing cards listing 10 fun and witty reasons as to why my best buddy is my perfect valentine, a valentine themed paper cake, 4 fun and witty vouchers, 3 coupons (found in the $1 target bin) and a homemade crayon shaped heart. I'm a cheesy person and my best bud hates candy (he's crazy) so I ended up with this. Any thoughts?

Goals, Influences and Intros

Hi! I'm Mireya (Me-ray-ah), I'm a first time blogger and have no clue exactly how this kind of stuff works, but with luck the world will offer me some aid! With that said, a little about this blog.

As a crafty person, I love trying new things. The goal of my blog is show other how easy it is to achieve cute and fun crafts for loved ones and friends with little or no experience with crafting. I have taken most of the craft ideas from and I love the way my crafts turn out. I will admit to not having much experience with sewing, knitting or stuff like that, but once I set my mind to making something I don't stop! So I'm here to share my crafting experience (or lack of) to the world in hopes that others will try new things and experiment!
