FINALLY Some Etsy Listings!!!

I am so proud and excited to announce that I have finally listed three of about eight of my hand-knit baby/toddler blankets and throws on Etsy! Here is my shop: Zelaya Art  I like to say baby/toddler blankets because the blankets are pretty large and thick... perfect for a baby to grow up with and use as an older toddler.  All of my blankets are GREAT gift ideas for things like baby showers, birthdays, wedding showers, etc. Please give my shop a look!

I was worried about capturing the blankets properly in my pictures, but I seem to have done a pretty good job, I think. Any feedback would be much appreciated!

Toe Tats

Well now that I see my toes on this post, I realize that probably no one really wants to see them. However, among all my tatoos, I think these are my favorites. Tiny, but cute and meaningful. They look good with black flip flops, you know, the ones I wear every day (I'm not a dressy kind of gal).

The tatoos represent the zodiac symbols of my four kids: Capricorn, Sagittarius, Leo, and Taurus.

A Splash of Color

This colorful project for my backyard was inspired by Pinterest. It is a combination of a couple different ideas that I saw. I saved tin cans from soup, canned beans and tomatoes and such and painted them bright colors with cheap gloss acrylic paint. Then I punched holes in the bottom of the cans for drainage and a hole on the top of each can to allow for a hook so I could hang them on my fence. I formed S hooks using some wire that we happened to have lying around and filled the cans with potting soil and different types of flowers. I planted zinnia seeds in some of the planters. Then I simply hung the cans on my fence with the S hooks. I love the splash of color and uniqueness this brings to our back yard!

Navy Dad

I just had to post this amazing picture of my cousin having a tea party with his daughter.  They are stationed in Japan right now. I think this picture really speaks about the sacrifice service men and women make for us. Taking time out to have a sweet tea party with his daughter - priceless!

Baby Spice

Don't ask me about the title... it just came out.

So I've got a baby and HATE throwing anything away, so I was wondering what to do with these baby food jars. Enter Pinterest, yes folks, the amazing space I can get lost in for days. The result is that now all my spices are in baby food jars, attached to magnets, attached to my fridge, which in turn resulted in more space in my tiny kitchen.  I have a family of six, I'll take any space I can get!
