It's all in the Family

The other day, I was talking to my sister Maria (yes she is the Maria of "Maria Tote"!). We talked about new designs that would suit the tote and yes, Maria Totes with Ribbons is the flavor of the month. Now my sister Maria is talented crafter. She makes bags, cushion covers, aprons ... just about anything! Nowadays her passion is making dolls, kitty and rag! Below are some of her creations. Aren't they cute?

You can visit her creations at or at
And oh, by the way, Maria also makes soy candles and handmade goatmilk soaps. That's her candles right there made of soy with scents so divine.

Now I have another sister, her name is Joan (but the family calls her Boom) and lives in Oman with her family. She is so creative, she teaches art and craft at her studio in Oman. Like Maria, she makes lots of handmade items like angels, dolls, ceramic buttons and tiles, wall hangings, handpainted fabrics and more. Nowadays, she's busy handpainting fabrics and makes them into really cute handbags and wristlets. Then she finishes her handbags with her own handmade ceramic buttons. Look at her gorgeous creations!
Now I'm only talking about 2 out of 9 in the family. We could make a whole department store with our creations!
