Custom Beer Mugs

I have been getting lots of request for custom orders, and here I have a set that the Bride-to-Be requested for her father and future father-in-law. I have more orders to work on and I have to admit I am having fun doing it. It is nice to see the reactions and the comments I get. These are the 20 ounce mugs. I have other sizes as well. I hope to eventually begin etching other types of glasses as maybe dishes as well. You can see more in my Etsy shop.

Have a great day!!

More New Items In My Etsy Shop!

I have lots of new items in my Etsy shop today. I am going to be adding some cards later this week, but for now, here is the link for my etched glasses.
Everything is ready to ship. You can always message me with any requests you may have.

I am off to pick up my sister from the airport later today. In the meantime, some house cleaning is in order!

I know I haven't been the best blogger lately, but I have had some priorities here at home that need my attention. All good things, not to worry! I am so happy to be back here, posting and creating and accomplishing. I have some great new possibilities that will allow me to create more. I am so excited and ready to put forth all of my effort into this. I am still interpreting in court, although not as much as I would like. I need to take the test for the next level, which I am so nervous about. I know I can do it, it is just a matter of preparing for the test. I love what I do, and I have reached a point where I need to take the next step.

In the end, it is all about family and providing for them - and having "enough". Not too much, not too little, but "enough". Does that make sense?

My little Dominic will be 1 in less than 5 weeks and I am so excited but happy as well. I am so grateful to have been here for so many of his milestones. I missed a lot of that with Sebastian and Alex when they were little. He has taken a few steps, FINALLY called me "mama" ON PURPOSE. I am sad because I want to turn back time and cherish every minute since the day he was born all over again. On the other hand, he makes  us laugh every single day.
The theme for his birthday party is going to be all nautical (imagine that!). Stephanie at Parker's Prints ( ) made a banner for his birthday that I think I may leave up for, I don't know, say, at least a year. It is THAT adorable. Check it out here: Stop by and tell her hello and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! She is super sweet, and her banners are great!
I made his invitations already, but can't post them until I hear back from PaperCrafts Magazine to find out if they have been accepted for a publication call!! I hope they are, it would be my first time being published. How special would that be? Dominic's first birthday invitations forever immortalized (HAHAHAHA) in a magazine!
