My birthday

Recently I got to celebrate a very special birthday with my family and friends. Can you guess how old I’m now?


I’m totally giving it away and I am quite alright with that.  This is a birthday I had been looking forward to for quite some time probably because of the movie '13 Going on 30' with Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. I want to be  "thirty, flirty, and thriving"

I am so excited about this year and everything the Lord has in store for me because I trust His promise: "For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future". (Jeremiah 29:11)


Here’s a picture of my delicious cake: Chocolate Caramel Crunch sprinkled with sea salt. Oh, Wow!. It was SO good: chocolately, sweet, and salty... Perfect combination for this gal!





Want to know what I got?  (this post contains affiliate links to Amazon. Thanks for your support!) 

One of my favorite gifts I received from my Hubster is my brand new spiralizer. Do you have one?  It’s a handy machine you can use to turn vegetables such as zucchini, beets, carrots, broccoli into noodles. It only takes a few minutes to spiralize your veggies and enjoy a fresh meal! 


I will be sharing what I am making with it next week! Stay tuned!!!

I also received a HoMedics Foot Spa from my parents. It works so great and is perfect to use after a long day standing and walking around. My feet feel so much better! Gracias papis!!!

A friend gifted me a gift card to one of my favorite places, Starbucks!!!! Oh yeah! Hello Chai-Latte and Cake Pops!  We enjoy taking walks together to Starbucks and enjoy a treat. Last time we went there, we also took some children's books to read there. The kids thought it was great to take our reading time outside of home to the coffee shop.

I also want to thank everyone who called, sent cards, and wrote me on fb to wish me a happy birthday.  You all rock!!!! You made my day. :-) 

Thank you for celebrating with me!

How to Make a Crochet Fabric Fusion Dress

This post contains affiliate links.



The life of a crafter tends to revolve around trying new patterns, combining materials, making something completely new. Sometimes it turns out just like we imagined it would, other times...well,  those times are good too. The process of crafting  is what makes it fun and worth the ride. One book that has really inspired me into this fusion technique has been Fun with Yarn and Fabric: More Than 50 Projects to Sew, Crochet, it is filled with projects that combine fabric with yarn into beautiful projects like cushion covers, blankets, etc.It is also so colorful that it will really motivate you into trying new color schemes.

Some time ago, I got this turquoise chevron fabric from Hobby Lobby with the intention of making a dress that would combine crochet and fabric. Just like a fusion blanket, I would make a fusion dress: fabric and crochet together to make a new dress.

Crochet is so fun and relaxing. Crocheting is even more fun when we get to use our skill and make crochet gifts for everyone we know. Or perhaps when we can even use our crochet as a business and sell our handmade items at craft shows.

The ultimate goal of crochet is to SHARE what we are able to make with our hands. 

This crochet towel holder takes about 20 minutes or less to make depending on your speed. 

What I love about this crochet pattern is that it creates a very useful item using cotton yarn. We use these holder in our kitchen and reminds everyone where to keep the kitchen towel so it doesn't get lost.

Hope you crochet a towel holder, too!
