Welcome New Followers!

I want to take this post to welcome all my wonderful new followers to my home; my beautiful island of Puerto Rico. It may be a small island, but it sure makes a huge impact when people come to visit. I'm in love with my island!! Puerto Rico is my family, my culture, my love, my everything. We have beautiful beaches, amazing architecture & structure at the Old San Juan, pretty Flamboyant tress and wonderful people. This island saw me grow and I feel really blessed :)

If someday you are planning to go on vacations, consider visiting Puerto Rico ;) I know you won't regret it! Do you want to know anything about Puerto Rico? Ask me and I will gladly respond.

Welcome my Online BlogCon friends and all the followers from the Blog Hops I've been participating. Thanks for all the love! Keep it coming!

October: National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hey everyone! As you may know, October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You should visit your doctor regularly and also, you can do a breast self-exam. I know some of you already know that info but, it's just a reminder :) Go PINK!

So, I'm going to tell you what I'm about do. As you know, I love beading... I though of making something special for someone who has fought against breast cancer. I just wanted to create something that represents what she's been through this year. I made a set of bracelet & a pair of earrings as a symbol of her being an example to me and I'm pretty sure, to all the women that knows her. I'm about to go to see her; here is my gift for her...

Create my own sticker? YES! I bought this little machine today and I'm really excited about it. I'm planning to create my own logo tags for my creations (bracelets, necklaces and earrings) so, today I went shopping for the materials I'm going to use. Suddenly, I found this! I bought it on Office Max but you can get it online on Xyron page.

Photo Tutorial: Double Bracelet

Hi everyone! I will explain how to do a double bracelet with plain beads. You can alternate colors of threads and types of beads. This is my first photo tutorial so... let's see how it goes!

Materials: diagonal cutting pliers or scissors, a button or something you can use to close the bracelet, 48 plains beads (quantity of beads depends on your wrist), approximately 24 inches of white leather thread, and 36 inches of thin white thread (the one you'll use to "knit" the beads).
