Etsy shop is open!

We made a sister pack that this year we would work to get an Etsy store up and running! We are going to start putting more items up like knitted mittens, bows, stationary and other charms! I even will be putting up 3DS cases I made.

Speaking of 3DS – my husband ordered the “new” smaller 3DS with Animal Crossing bundle!! Should get it by the end of the month!! We’ve been OBSESSED with Splatoon playing the online ranked battles non-stop. Husband and I have to take turns since we only have 1 wiiu. We did get the game for my sisters to also play! Don’t let those little sisters fool you! Kimmy has been kicking my butt on turf war!! B R U T A L!!! Today is her bday by the way! Stop by her blog and say hello!!!


Charms and giveaway

I’m starting to branch off to creating some handmade items. I just needed a break from freelance and coding – sometimes a little crafting can make the brain feel creative!! International Sailor Moon Day is fast approaching and I am donating a Bow 3DS case to the cosplay contest. I’m also creating some bracelets and charms – here are a few examples of some of the pieces I made.

Craft Corner

My sisters and I run a shared blog together called Mind Speaks. I just recently gave it a face lift and new look. If you get a chance, please take a look.


Besides that Houston has been having weird weather, from foggy warm days to rainy ice cold mornings. The back and forth with all of this weird weather has made me sick – sore throat and runny nose. Gross. So I am home today, watching the winter Olympics and playing Bravely Default. If you love jrpgs then you have to get this game. I have been wanting something like this on the 3DS, and the art is amazing. My dude got the special edition that came with the soundtrack so we’ve been listening to that while out doing errands.


Anyone else playing the game? Add me on the 3DS/Nintendo ID thingy: Mijavera | 2020-1000-1087

Springtime and Mind-Speaks

Spring is totally in the air!! Even if Texas weather is still acting bipolar -_-; One day it is a lovely day, the next it freezing and gloomy outside. Which is probably why I am sick, bipolar weather is messing with my sinuses! Yesterday we went to the Houston Galleria and I noticed a store window design (Tory Burch storefront) looked familiar! My best friend Emily actually designed and constructed my wedding doorway! She did an amazing job!!! But it seems a window designer might have copied her style lol I took a picture and sent it to her and even she was shocked that the window display looked similar to hers. What do you think?

My wedding last year

Speaking of my wedding, I have gotten a few emails asking about how my invitations looked like. I have posted pics of all the pieces that I included in my invitations over here at my sister art blog! I also wanted to explain why I have a separate place to upload work at. Mind-Speaks is a group blog I own with my two sisters – Kim & Kat. We try to post monthly projects we have been working on.

I hope later this year to do a make over my other sites and get a bit more organized!! You can totally tell I am sick, I updated more than once over the weekend!!
