All about the bunnies!

Who doesn't love bunnies? I know I do, I named my shop after them. ;o) So, it was inevitable that I make a piece of jewelry that has bunnies in it. To promote my new pair of earrings, I thought it would be a great idea to feature some Etsy bunny items. I went on Etsy to find the cutest and most bunniest items I could find. Check these out, you'll want to have one of these after reading this blog.

Teacups in the Little Forest Bunnies Print

Tumsy the bunny necklace


Bunnies V-Neck T-Shirt

Rainn Moon Bun

Fancy Rabbit Messenger Bag Putty

Bunny Cup in Frosted Turquoise

And finally my new pair of earrings! These are made with PMC (precious metal clay). I stamped it with a bunny and added sterling silver posts and backs. They are so cute and are one of the smallest pair of earrings I've made. They are only 5/8"! Check them out! 

Heart Bunny Post Earrings

Hope you all enjoyed my all time favorite bunny items from Etsy! And if you happened to have a bunny item you think I would like, please post them or send me an email!

China Basin Camp

Went mountain biking at China Basin Camp in San Rafael on Saturday... it was so much fun! We rode about 18 miles around the Peacock Loop. It look us about 3 hours. We stopped at the beach, checked out the view and took a few short breaks. Can't wait to do it again!

Grandma's 96th Birthday Party Favors

I can’t believe my grandmother is almost a century years old. She has lived a long life and still as strong and healthy as ever! We are celebrating my grandmother’s 96th birthday this Saturday, August 21st. Happy birthday, Nanay!

I made an invitation and party favors to give out to guests. It was a fun project and thought I would share it. This is her invitation. I printed it on a 4x6 photo paper... it printed out nicely!

I few weeks ago, I bought a soap kit that I got from Michael’s. I wanted to make my own soap because I’m tired of buying soap and because I’m curious about making soap. So I thought it would be a great idea to make soap and put them in a flower mold and make them as party favors for my grandma. My grandma loves flowers so it was easy to come up with that idea. And also, I didn’t want a huge soap bar I just wanted something cute and small. I found this mold in the cake decorating section at Michael’s Arts and Crafts. It’s the perfect size. I only bought one tray so it took me a few days to do about 48 of them. I don’t think I need that much, but I didn’t want to be short. I’d rather have more than not enough.


It was easy to put together, but it took time. After I finished making the soap, I cut up some scrapbook colored stock paper into circles with one of those paper shaper scissors. Then I put a little label in the back with a note that says “thank you for coming”. I used a mailing label template and printed it on a clear mailing label sticker so it’s transparent. I put that in a plastic bag that I also bought at Michael’s with the soap and tied it with a pink ribbon. It came out perfect!


It took me a few days to complete, I had to cut all 48 circles and cut each label to fit on the back. And now that I think about it, I could of used a paper cutter and trimmed them to the size I need instead! (note to self!) Then I cut 48 pink ribbons, about 7” long and tied them around the plastic bags. Tying the plastic bags took the longest! But it was worth it because it came out just the way I wanted it to.


Hope this gave some of you inspiration and an idea for your next party! I think this favor would be great for weddings as well as baby showers too!

Muir Woods

I haven't been to Muir Woods in years and I only live about a 30 minute drive away. Believe it or not, that was only the second time in my life that I have been there. I need to appreciate my city and venture out a little more. If only I could have hiked a little further..... oh well. My poor boyfriend has knee problems and I can't make him walk for too long. The only reason I got him out there is the Muir Woods Cafe. We were watching "The Best Food I Ever Ate" on the food network and someone mentioned that this cafe had the BEST grilled cheese sandwich he ever had. So we went out there and checked it out. The grilled cheese wasn't the best I ever had, but OMG... tomato soup was awesome! Kept us warm too. You would know if you've been to Muir Woods, it's always foggy and wet. Keep that in mind when you go. And remember to stop by the cafe before your hike,  the soup will help warm your soul. 


I love this photograph. This is one of my faves...

Here are other photos taken at Muir Woods:

Town Fiesta

Town Fiestas in the Philippines are so much fun! You go door to door at people's home and eat all day. They honor and parade their Santo Nino's around, have muses for each barrio (kinda like a beauty pageant) and have fireworks too! Unfortunately, I missed all that yesterday and only got to see what they call a "Karakol". People representing their barrios parade accross town dancing with different color outfits and loud music. I caught a few shots, but man, it was way too hot to be standing in the sun!

I like the Minnie Mouse and Spiderman balloons!

Still jet lagged

The time now is 8:54pm and I feel like it's been passed my bedtime since 2pm this afternoon. My eyes are so tired and my head hurts, almost feels like a hangover.... almost.

I got up a little before 6am this morning to the sound of the cock-a-doodle-doo outside. It's not our chickens, we don't have any here. I've seen chickens running around wild around the neighborhood. I got up and looked out the window and saw that the full moon that was still out. So, of course I had to have a photograph.

I got up and had my cup of coffee and off to the farmers market we went to get some fish and vegetables.

My mom's cat and I became friends instantly. He is such a sweetheart and he's very affectionate! He sounds like a little baby crying when he's meowing... so weird. Sometimes I think it's my nephew making that sound. His name is Me.

First day of my 3-week vacation

For the next 3 weeks I will be here in the Philippines on vacation. ...wooohoo!! It's been awhile for me since I've taken a vacation this long and I am very  excited to be here. So for the next three weeks  I will be away from my jewelry making and be focused on taking some really great photographs.... my other passion!

So after a reaaally  long flight (16 hours!) and no sleep, I still managed to take a couple of great shots. This beautiful tropical beauty is in my mom's garden. I'm really not sure what this flower is called, though.
