And another jewelry organizer

Well that didn't take long... I made my second jewelry organizer and it sold within 15 minutes!  yay!

So here's a picture of it.  I will be most likely be adding an extra pocket (or two) for necklaces.


I'm very much enjoying making these!

Thanks for dropping by!

Jewelry Organizer

Oh my, it's been such a long time since I've posted. I should work on that. I am soooo excited about this new item I have created, that I just have to share it with you!

Every time that I travel, I can never find the perfect "bag" to store my jewelry in.  Everything gets tangled and it's so frustrating.  Soo I put my thinking cap on.  And oh my, this idea woke me out of my sleep...lol

My inspiration was based on this - my crochet hook organizer that I had just taken out the day before to get ready to crochet sleeping mats for Haiti.



And I came up with this:

How do you like the freestyle stitching?

It opens up to this:

Felt pages to hold my earrings.

A page with a band and a pocket to hold my necklaces.


A strap to hold my bracelets.

And this organizer is quilted so it adds extra padding to protect your jewelry.  And the clasp is elasticized to allow more bulky items.

So what do you think?  I'll be making a few more to sell on Gabry Road.

Cricut Covers

It's time to take that towel off your Cricut machine and protect it with a stylish handmade fabric cover that will make a pretty addition to your work space.  Equally important, it will keep your machine free from dust and normal wear and tear.

All seams have been double stitched to ensure durability for years to come.  All embellishments are all removable as they are not washable.  The best thing about these embellishments are that you can attach them to your clothes, jackets or even handbags.  Isn't that nifty?   

Each cover will have specific info on the type of fabric and best way to take care of it.

If you are interested in purchasing a cover, please visit my Boutique on Gabry Road ->Your #1 spot for handmade Canadian goodness!

Should you require more info, please convo me.

No more ERR

Have you struggled with weight loss?  Well I have!  At one point in my life, I had lost 120 lbs and I felt great.  I considered myself very fit, went to the gym 6 days a week, biked 20 kms every 2nd day, loved it.  Had the weight off for about 2 years, then bam, my life changed in the spam of a couple minutes.  That was 6 1/2 years ago.  Since then I had gained all the weight back and more.  No matter what I did, no matter what diet I followed, my body wasn't responding.  I guess it needed to heal from that horrible accident. 

Last August, I decided to try that same diet again.  I admit, I cheated a few times going out for lunch with friends, at Christmas and then on our trip, I didn't go to the extreme, but cheating is cheating.  Since last August, I haven't been able to weigh myself cause my digital scale read "ERR" .. yes, for ERROR.

But then this morning, I got on it and was blown away !!!  You don't know how much of a relief to finally see that ERR gone!!!  I think I will take a picture of myself today and post the ones from earlier on as well.
