Featured in Life by the book

Kristin from Life by the book featured Aurelia the elephant in a great gift guide for kids.
Everything in the guide is handmade and so well done and beautiful.

Aurelia has a brother Aurelio and they both can be made in any color and fabric that you want.
They are super soft and cuddly!

They are soft, cuddly and cute!

I just finished a set of baby toys for a baby boy. The set includes a white teddy bear, a white bunny rattle, a blue elephant and a soft ball in a combination of white terry cloth and polka dot fleece.

Giving a baby a toy helps them connect with the world, learn about shapes, textures, colors and sound. A soft toy can be transfered from one hand to the other to develp hand-eye coordination. A soft stuffed animal can also help the baby bond with others.

This little bear is made with soft minky fleece and has no features to make it safe for the smallest ones.

These balls have a rattle inside, it is so much fun to see a baby play with their first ball!

My work space

In July my workspace was featured in my team, Esetsy's blog.
I thought I would add a few more pictures of my work space here.

My desk is in a room in the second floor of our house.

New Etsy Store

I just recently opened my third store on Esty!
It is called Mustis ( My husband calles me Musti) and it is my supplies store. In this store I am selling hard to find patterns, vintage craft books and unique supplies to make your own crafts.

I am planning on listing a some vintage fabrics and buttons in the next few days.

Getting ready for Christmas Cinammon applesauce Ornaments

It is hard to believe how fast this year has passed!
Christmas is my favorite Holiday and I love winter, hot coco and warm sweaters.

Last year my then five year old and I made Cinnamon ornaments. It is a perfect holiday activity for kids.

It is really easy to make and they smell really good and as I was able to confirm the other day when I took them out….the smell really lasts.

1 1/2 cups applesauce
1 1/2 cups cinnamon
1/8 cup Elmer's glue

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
You can add more applesauce if the dough is dry or more cinnamon if it is too wet.
set the dough on a waxed piece of paper and roll it to about 1/8" thick.
Then have fun using different cookie cutters, or even playdough cutters.

To make the holes for a string , use a straw and don't forget to do it while the dough is still wet. At this point you can get creative and add little beads to decorate.

Bake in the oven for half hour at around 150 degrees. After removing from the oven let them dry for a day or two.

My Bunny Pascualito on top of a diaper cake!

Isn't this diaper cake adorable?
I had the honored to be contacted by a customer who wanted to buy one of my bunnies, she only had two requests that I made it white with deep pink ears and that she could sit on her own.
The result? You can see it at the top of her amazing diaper cake.
