la vida compartida...

Last week Rosa María, from La Vida Compartida announced I was among the winners of the Jute Giveaway she hosted at her blog...

I met Rosa María a few months ago, while looking for quilters in Mexico... I was amazed at the beautiful crafts she makes and sells through her etsy store 464 Handmade. She lives in Jalisco (the land of Tequila!!!) and by looking at her great photography you can tell she lives in a quiet, beautiful place surrounded by a pretty garden, with a mexican country look, and she shares her life with Alex and their pets...


This is the Jute I received as gift... I chose the colour Coffee Sack Brown, don't you love the name? There are more colours to chose from...


When I opened the package I also found this Tissue Holder, handmade by her and also sold at her store...


and these Sewn Tags, just in time for Christmas! 


Here's a pic of the gifts I received from Rosa María... THANK YOU!!! I loved them all!!! (See that floral tape? it's called washi tape, and she loves it)...

So if you like my gifts and would love to get some, for you or someone you care for, visit Rosa Maria, she ships worldwide. You can also visit her to know more about quilting and her life in Jalisco, Mexico..

While visiting her blog, you can link to her flickr, Facebook and Pinterest...

penzey's cinnamon... a gift

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to meet some internet friends and had a great time together icing COOKIES, talking COOKIES and having fun with COOKIES!

I met some of the most amazing decorators, that happen to be beautiful human beings that love to share and give... I can't talk of all of them in one post, so I plan to introduce each one in a special post...

This post is dedicated to Tricia and Denyse, from Arizona. We met via flickr, which is an amazing place to meet people that do/love the same things you do/love... Tricia and Denyse are sisters in law... in the few days I spent with them (they were among the friends that picked me up at the airport!), I can tell they are very close and are always laughing. They gave each of us a bottle of Pensey's Vientamese Cinnamon...


I happen to love cinnamon, and couldn't wait to be back home and use it. I found that it has a great rich flavour, not spiced nor pungent...

Recipe from Williams Sonoma Essentials of Baking


Cinnamon Streusel Cake





Even if you don't have Pensey's Cinnamon, you have to try this recipe!
Happy Baking!!

cancuncookies on bake at 350

Today my COOKIES were featured on Bridget's blog, Bake at 350...

Just imagine!
I'm following her blog since last year when I found her while googling "Lance Armstrong"... I read about her Mom, loved her photos as a little girl, and started reading her blog... I was a lurker but because I didn't know I could comment and thought it was a certain kind of club... as a COOKIE lover I just love her tutorials, and tips... her photos are sooo good, her COOKIES are amazing... and today I found out she is talking about... me!!!

Thank you, Bridget! You made me feel super special, and my girls are applauding Mama's COOKIES on a friendly blog, and looking at all your COOKIES and photos... they noticed your black background photos, and asked if you taught my how to do that!!

So please, visit her blog, and you will find many tips on COOKIE icing, baking...

cancunissimo


On February, COOKIES I made will be in the front cover of CANCUNISSIMO , a local magazine...

I was flattered and grateful when I was invited to do this project... I had so many ideas, and presented clipart and COOKIES I've done in the past. I was asked to make these, which aren't my designs, but Jeniffer's from Cake Central.

I thank God for this great opportunity, as many people will get to see what I do and know a little about me from the interview inside... I hope everyone in Cancun is tempted by those COOKIES!

I want to thank Vicente, a dear friend for considering my COOKIES... this is a dream come true, Vicente!! I know you are very professional and being in the front cover of your magazine, besides a very long friendship, has to do with the fact that you like my work... I love you and your family and know you love us all as well...
thank you, Esteban, for coming to my home and through a nice chat discovering my passion to many who don't know me... I had a great time at the photo shooting session and I have yet to read the interview!...

and THANK YOU!... yes YOU who have shared your skills with me through courses, workshops, books, classes, tutos, how tos, photos and priceless cooperation... your help is invaluable...

I'll post about the interview as soon as I receive the magazine and read it...
