Colorful Gift Box - Amigurumi Packaging

Hi there!
I had a friend telling me the other day I was like a character from the movie The Matrix,, because I put my mind on something crafty and 20 minutes later I've learned most of what's important to make it. This is how I learned to crochet. I found on Pinterest some really cute Amigurumi figures and a week later, I had spawned a whole basketball team of characters.(I did make an extra one later on, I'm not that sports challenged)

Baby Mariana Baptism Favors

My niece visited Chile a couple of months ago and her parents honored me with being one of the Godfathers.
I was in charge of the baptism favours, and after much thinking, we (my mom and I) came up with a color (Rose Quartz) and a theme (butterflies).
I also made origami boxes to store them.

Revisited Argyle Sweater Card With Real Stitching

Last year I made a similar card, but it had faux stitching made with a white gel pen.
This one has real stitching instead. Don´t judge me, I´m not good at hand sewing, so if you think this card could do better with a different sewing technique, please let me know.

Around the Sun Spinning Card - English and Spanish.

This year, people have been using the phrase "a journey around the sun" to congratulate others on their birthday a lot.
Now, giving my brush lettering practising and the fact that my friend Ricardo always expects an awesome card, I came up with an idea that combines, Faux brush lettering, the popular quote and a spinning card.

Long Overdue - Light Up, Foiled Christmas Card

It's been a while since my last post. I had so much on my plate, I totally neglected my crafty duties.
when looking for inspiration for my Christmas card, I saw a lot of light up cards on Youtube and I really wanted to make one, but the price of some electronic components is so high, I had to find an alternative. I ended up with this fun card that lights up the character's nose when you press the gift next it.
