Do you remember the post when I bought some beads for my girl’s bracelets’, I was working on them me and my Mami as she was saying “mother daughter crafts” and it was a full day with bracelets’ making.

Here I opened the beads package


Here’s my son jay took the package and run away....


Here’s Miia trying to get the package and run with it too Lo0lz.

And she did it!!

Ok... We talked a lot... Let’s get back to our topic... we sorted the beads by shapes 

Then I brought elastic thread and a thick needle


Leave you with the pics,,

Its shopping time

I was holding some stuff at some wish list of online shopping sites, then I thought of discovering some Dubai craft wholesalers.



It was the third day of Al Eid (Muslim's holy and celebration day), and we were spending the holiday at Al Aqaa Resort in Alfujairah. I told my husband and he like "I don’t think that this lady will stop spending on her stuff". At the end he took me there. I find a lot of stuff I was going to buy but a lot cheaper than the online. I know that its better from the spending side but the problem is the Wholesaler shopping places here in Dubai is a crowded place than any where else, and the parking is hard to be found, and if you thought of going riding a taxi that is more difficult because you want to have a place for your heavy bags and stuff and the taxi won't stick to you unless….!!



back to the shopping, lets show you some pictures...




This is Ric Racs, its cute for the little ones; I took a lot of colors taking advantages of how cheap I found it.









Those some ribbons and some laces cute and colorful., I was going to buy a lot of them but my husband was pushing me all over so I can go out of the shop.

This some stuff for my daughter's bracelets.




 Those some ready made flowers made of fabrics, satins and laces.


Never forget the buttons, I adore buttons a lot but the problem is that we can't find much here especially for kids.

So my last advice to my local or residents crafty friends is to look aver Dubai wholesaler shops before proceeding any orders form Amazon, you will pay less and barging as much as you can for lots of stuff.

Sewing madness, color, fabrics and childhoods

One year ago, I was that person who never thought about a threads or a needle, I was in the middle of pressures, my personal problems and pain, and between my kids screams.


You know some time when you see some people on the news paper or TV and they keep saying that they turned their pain into something creative. This time I decided to try to do that, to turn something in me into something creative and I choose Sewing, yes. And that how everything started since and i couldn’t stop it.


I started searching on the internet, tutorials and tricks, mail man goes and the other comes, there were a life in my room, on my life. I can’t say I found my life since I learned sewing, actually when sewing found me I found myself, and expressed my feeling on my fabrics.


It started with brother BM 2600, table, threads then surgery fabrics and stuff. Online tuts helped a lot, I’ve done few and few I couldn’t so I can start over again. I took advanced lessons on photo shooting so I can upload my own pictures, I learned some clothes details such as bias, accessories and stuff, and then I taught myself during my accounting study, family pressures and raising my kids and I turned my pain into creativity. And from this blog, this is my window to tear my pain apart.
