I love how the geranium and vine embraces the  Our Lady of Guadalupe statue.

Mermaid Paper Doll - Art Swap

 I recently participated in a art swap through Facebook called “Art Across the Miles”.

The theme was Mermaid Paper Doll
My swap partner was Kimberly Dunaway Scott

The first doll is the one I sent to my swap partner. I combined my love of Mexican folk art and mermaids.


Seaglass Collecting bags

 Now that it’s summer and I’m on break until school starts up again, I have time to finally finish my Seaglass collecting bags!

These are my “Mermaid” series.
They each have a front pocket for small treasures and a adjustable strap.
Once done, I’ll have 10 available for purchase. 💕

 In celebration of now officially being apart of the AVMS team
I made my award winning  cupcakes to take to work! 💗🧁

Then I packaged them up in a cup with a spoon, ready to eat!

Isn’t she adorable?

New Hair Cut!

 So I did a thing.

Today I gave myself some bangs, fussy cut around the face and let Dyllan take 3” off the back.
Now my hair is lighter and more fun! 💗
My new “do” pairs perfectly with my handmade headbands!
What do you think?

How to Root Basil Cuttings.

 I saw this idea on tiktok and it worked!
 Place a cutting or two of Basil
 in a bud vase filled with water.
 After about about 2 to 2 ½ weeks, the cutting will grow roots and be ready to plant! 🌱


In the Garden

 It was too nice of a day for being indoors so I cleaned up our secret garden a bit. I made a nice place to sort and clean sea treasures and then weeded a spot for my Our Lady of Guadalupe garden statue. 💗
 I’m looking forward to building her a proper shrine, complete with a little bird fountain. 💕

Today is My Birthday

 Normally, I’m not a fan of carnation flowers, but I absolutely love these.
Gorgeous color!


Going for a bike ride!

 Dyllan and I went for a bike ride at Laguna Niguel Regional Park.
It was a gorgeous day for it! It’s 2.5 miles around the lake.
We rode around the lake 4 times plus in and around the park.
 I forgot how much I loved to ride! It was so much fun! 💕

Sea Glass Collecting

 Not that bad for about a hours worth of beach-combing. 💕

It was also high tide and the waves were so unpredictable. I got soaked from the waist down more than once.
Good thing I was wearing a belt! 


Birthday Birdhouse

 Just something I made for a co-workers birthday last week. I painted a plain wooden Birdhouse in bright cheery colors. Then I cut the roses from scrapbook paper and added them with Mod Podge - She loved it and has asked me to teach her how to brighten up her other birdhouses too!
