I'll also have some similar listings* @ my Etsy shop that you can purchase to have some of my handmade bluebellies samples, please come soon to find out more!

And the September is right on!

Happy Day - oh my!

Bluebellies, always happy and blue

Moments that I got to work on my little etsy shop are just so precious to me. That means those spare breaks in between my little boy things and my inspirations.
They may be one or 2 hours, half hour, or just some minutes(I know...sounds weird, but it is enough to put something in its place if mixed up), when I find myself with some new or renewed ideas, with supplies I may have already in my stash or something yet to be purchased.

These are such some colorful days for me. I love these colors of mine.

I've been little late to put on more bellies but I'll catch up by the weekend....:D.
Already took some pictures of some new ones!
Oh, so colorful!

This is such an amazing season, splash citrus of summer and upcoming autumn romantic shades. I love these colors of nature!

Tonight I added some more bellies in the shop. Be sure to check them out!

Also, a BIG thanks to Victoria, who sent me some sweet and heartwarming comments, thank you for your words of kindness!

Good night!

Bluebellies of all colors.

More I (eye) candy flowers!

Here we go...more { I } candy flowers just listed - FRESH - to my Etsy!

Presenting some new bellies...

...The fresh {I} CANDY FLOWER COLLECTION from Bluebellies shop!
They all have a girly name followed by a fruit or a flavor that reminds a fruit and the color shade!

This set you see in here is called Annabella Cocoa...(smelling chocolate?)

It's meant to be just as yummy as those fruity candies any kid's hard to resist. But for paper crafts instead.
I created this collection thinking about the easiest way to use them as embellishments for a card, a page layout, a keepsake box top, and anywhere else the creativity goes to. Put the adhesive and done! Easy and pretty.

Starting next month, I'm planning to post sample projects by using many of the bellies from the etsy shop, while I'm still working on these, please come often to check more of them coming soon.

Always refreshing,
Bluebellies and {I} CANDY FLOWERs

Oh yes...I love these (and others, of course) flowers very much!!
Because of the delicate and intrigate "nature" of the flowers, I'm learning and enjoying more and more about these little beautiful things!
I know, they are JUST handmade and hand picked - from paper or fabric or other material (I can think about it...) from my heart....what can I say!
And they are truly made with lots, lots of love. I spent some time making my flowers as well as other bellies that come fresh directy from my creative garden!

I have many fresh HM flowers listed at my ETSY!
And some more coming soon...

Have a beautiful week (of flowers)!

Recently we took a nice and sunny saturday and went to a local amusement park and zoo. I love to see these big pals like giraffe,hipo and elephant.
We were watching this elephant walking and when my husband went away after our little boy - to check out another big fella - I realized that this one was just standing up right in front of me, like "dancing", smoothly, just moving its huge body.
Well, I had to grab my camera to click this and the picture you see above is what I got from this funny moment.
A natural dancer! Woww...

That's it, sharing fun stuff!

Do you like to use buttons for your scrapbooking, card making or any other paper craftings?
Doesn't matter if you are about altered art, mixed media, shabby shic, classic, romantic or simple style. Buttons are good for every creative surface!
I became a conscient button collector "not" long time yet - this means that I already was in love with these little ones, just not consciously keeping them as a important part of my embellishments collections as I do today, but JUST having fun and enjoying them as the creativity soars for my projects.
Recently I reorganized all my buttons and added some different ones. The result of this happy homework you may see in my etsy shop(go to the side bar of the blog to see more), started this month.

This morning I listed the set you see below that I call Button Colors (Scallop Rounds). They are simply COLORFUL-HAPPY and CUTE AS A BUTTON!

If you like cute buttons like I do now, come to see me often! And let me know if you've got any ideas about them, let's SHARE!!

Happy Button-enjoying!

Hi everyone!
There are some new "delicious" bellies just listed in my Etsy!
Be sure to check them out and/or leave some comment here...

Thanks for visiting my blog and helping to spread the words about my little BLUEBELLIES!

I'm working* on more of them and some samples to show you the many ways to use them (my ways of course!)...
Working always during my little one's napping. So his curiosity does not get me out of the table!

Fun week for you!

I found some interesting facts about blueberries-the fruit that I wanted to share here:

Blueberries and Antioxidant Activity

Antioxidants are thought to help protect the body against the damaging effects of free radicals and the chronic diseases associated with the aging process. Fresh fruits, including blueberries, and vegetables contain many of these naturally occurring antioxidants such as Vitamins C and E. Blueberries contain 14 mg of Vitamin C and 0.8 mg Vitamin E per 1 cup of blueberries. In addition, blueberries containanthocyanins and phenolics that can also act as antioxidants. Based on data from the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (Boston, MA), blueberries are among the fruits with the highest antioxidant activity. Using a test called ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), researchers have shown that a serving of fresh blueberries provides more antioxidant activity than many other fresh fruits and vegetables.

Be healthy and happy!

Hi there...
The butterfly square set of bellies you see here is one of the items I listed today.
As I'm adding new items every other day now, I also find myself in the process of creating more fresh bellies.
There are many different things I'd like to put together to see how the results will come up or the final design will look like. Well, there are lots of ideas.

I'm trying to restart (I had a break due some timing issues) another etsy shop of mine - maybe by the end of the month or next month -just working "hard" in between taking care of my baby boy and my little business stuff to get the items done and ready to be listed there.
I'll post here when all things are set up and ready to "go".

By the meantime, keep checking my posting and listing to see what I have to share with you.

Thanks again!

I know, seems like mostly ( or...maybe everybody?) of the scrappy-crafty ladies out there are now so much into flowers.
Well, I was never an exception. Just LOVE-LOVE-LOVE, these God happily-made little creatures.

I've been doing some shopping in my (favorite) local craft stores - found some interesting stuff I could be adding into my bellies-making. There are new ideas coming up - SORRY... - I can't list them here now. You have to come back to see. :)
It's my creative process and I do hope to share with you, every time when it is ready to.

What you can see today is the vintage style flowers I just listed...

And I'm sure to list(etsy) and post(here) more and more!

You can leave a message here to let me know about your love for flowers! I'd LOVE to hear from you!

Bluebellies - all about flowers.

Yes-I was supposed to be busy doing more bellies, listing(etsy) and posting(here) today little one was still kind of "sicky" - he got a viruse last week since then our time was not enough for anything else but taking care of him.
I had just an ordinary day as mommy. Got few time for my new etsy shop stuff but the inspiration was always sparkling in my mind. I was "drawing" mentally what I could make while playing with my kid and feeding him.

Anyways, thanks God he is getting better AND eating more. That's all that matters.
I want to list and post new items daily for this month.
And I'll do my best for it.
Well, this is one of the fresh bellies you can find at shop.

Have a great week!
