How to generate a TinyUrl.

This is a subject that perhaps will interest some of you and that is why I
decided to write this post.
I have created an account on Twitter and that's how I discovered that there is
a limit to the number of characters a message can carry.
I started using Twitter and Instagram to promote my blog, hence the importance
of being able to write my full Url in the message, without losing any
I'm talking about Twitter and Instagram, but those are just examples,
sometimes we want to share our post in groups, or send an  email,
or share a link on  forums and we left a link with the Url to our post,
however our Url is not always active, the person that  want to visit your blog
will copy and paste the link, sometimes it is very long and some characters
will be lost.... and can not get to our post.
The solution to that  problem is to use a tiny url,
using a tiny URL  can allow linking to web pages directly.
So.......I wondered, how to change a big URL into a tiny URL.
I did a search on Google, and to my surprise, I discovered several tiny Url
generators. Today I share with you the generator I use, and I show you how
easy it is.
This is what you will find;
You are going to copy the url of the page you want to shorten and pasted in the
white space;
Then simply click on Make Tiny URL;
A new page will open and  your new TinyUrl will be generate.

You'll have to copy and paste the url and share what you want.
I hope this mini tutorial will be useful for you!
Have a beautiful day, see you soon, Marisa :)

Stuffed animals, sewing pattern.

I was looking for ideas to make a gift to two little princesses. They are the
nieces of my oldest son, and they  came to visit me for the first time last
summer and of course I wanted to create something special.

I thought to myself that a soft toy would be ideal. So I had another excuse to
visit a fabric store,  we always need to find an excuse to not feel guilty,
right? in this case I needed a pattern!!!! It was there that I found this pattern.

These animals are so lovely, and something that I liked was the ability to
combine various fabrics and of course use my scraps. It is not a
project for beginners, some places are hard to sew, but worth the effort.
These stuffed animals will sure please the little ones.

As a gift for sisters, I wanted to make the them as similar as possible with
some details that might differentiate one from another. It occurred to me that
I could change the position of the eyes and added them collars for cats in different colors,
which I found at the dollar store.
I love those paws!!!

Now I want to sew the rest of the animals that are in this pattern, but I have
begun so many projects that I will leave this project in my drawer to do it later.

Hopefully you have enjoyed this project, see you soon with other creations
and ideas.
Here is the link to the pattern.  I have no affiliation is only a
link to anyone who is interested to do so. On the site you will find more
details about these beautiful soft animals.

Thank you for your visit.
I wish you a beautiful and creative day :)
Estaba buscando ideas para hacer un regalo a dos pequeñas princesas. Ellas son
las sobrinas de mi hijo mayor, y vinieron a visitarme por primera vez el verano
pasado.....y por supuesto que quería crear algo especial.
Se me ocurrió  que un juguete en tela sería ideal. Como no tenia ningún patrón,
tuve otra excusa para visitar  una tienda de telas, siempre hay que encontrar
una excusa para no sentirse culpable ¿verdad? en este caso;  necesitaba un
patrón !!!! Fue allí donde encontré lo que buscaba

Estos animales son preciosos, y algo que me gustó fue la posibilidad de
combinar varios colores de telas y por supuesto utilizar mis  restantes.
No es un proyecto para principiantes, en realidad algunos lugares son difíciles
de coser, pero vale la pena el esfuerzo.
Con estos muñecos de peluche estaremos  seguros de complacer a los más
Como era un regalo para dos hermanas, quería que ellos fueran lo más similares
posible, pero con algunos detalles que podrían diferenciar un perrito  del otro.
Se me ocurrió que cambiar la posición de los ojos y les añadi  collares para
gatos, que conseguí en la tienda del dólar.
Ahora quiero coser el resto de los animales que se encuentran en este patrón,
pero tengo comenzadas tantas cosas que voy a dejarlo de lado por el momento   y
lo  haré más tarde.
Ojala  que hayan disfrutado de este proyecto, nos vemos pronto con otras
creaciones y mas ideas!!!
Aquí está el enlace para este  patrón, en este caso no tengo ninguna afiliación
es sólo un enlace para cualquier persona interesada en hacerlo.
En el sitio encontrarás más detalles acerca de estos hermosos animalitos.

Gracias por la visita!!!

Crochet Dishcloth, free pattern.

I think I am not the only one that when a project ends, decides to save the
leftovers, am I???  I have bags with remnants of yarn and boxes with leftover
fabric which  I save to make flowers.
I 'm always looking for a way to use those leftovers and I  was lucky enough
to  discover a beautiful blog, with a lot of projects, the name of the
blog is "Craft Leftovers", exactly what I was  looking for !!! . It is a blog
with tutorials and free patterns about sewing, crochet, knitting ...we
can't ask more.
These are projects that we began and ended fast, are useful, lovely and  easy
to do.

These are the two dishcloths I did, I really like how it turned the combination
of colors.
We may also make three or four dishcloths and pack them in an original way to
make a  gift.

I leave here the link where you can find  the pattern, you can download it as
a pdf. While there  take advantage and discover other projects, one of those I
want to make is a "Crochet Tiger Kitty" which is lovely.

Creo que no soy la única que cuando termina un proyecto, decide guardar los
restantes,  o si lo soy ??? Tengo bolsas con restos de lana y cajas con restos
de tela que guardo para hacer flores.

Siempre estoy en busca de una manera de utilizar esos restantes y en mi
búsqueda tuve la suerte de descubrir un hermoso blog, del estilo que yo quería,
con un montón de proyectos, el nombre del blog es "Craft Leftovers",
exactamente lo que estaba buscando !!! . Es un blog con tutoriales y patrones
gratis  sobre costura, crochet, tejido ...   no puedo pedir más.
Se trata de proyectos que comenzamos y terminamos rápido, son útiles, lindos y
fácil de hacer.
En mis fotos les muestro  los dos paños de cocina que hice, me gusta   cómo
quedó la combinación de colores.
Una idea es  hacer tres o cuatro paños de cocina y envolverlos en una forma
original  para  hacer un regalo.
Os dejo aquí el enlace donde se puede encontrar el patrón, pueden descargarlo
como un pdf. Mientras están visitando el blog, porque  no aprovechar y descubrir
otros proyectos que tienen allí,?  Uno de los proyectos que  quiero hacer es un
"Crochet Tiger Kitty", que es precioso.
Gracias por vuestra visita, nos vemos pronto!
Thanks for visiting, see you soon !
Have a beautiful and creative day!!!!!!

Get connected with twitter and Instagrame.

Yesterday I decided to step forward with technology, there are a number of ways
to communicate and connect with all of you. Most of us have a blog, a Facebook
page, we collected beautiful projects that we pin to our boards on Pinterest,
we have an account with Google +......Then  I discovered that many of you have
an account with Instagram and Twitter, what can I say ....you have motivated me
to create an account, well...I did it!!! NOW I'm on Instagram and Twitter. I
don't know how they work yet, but I'll throw myself into the adventure.
I think it's another way to share our creations, it's always inspiring to see
what other people are doing in the world.
If there are any among you, who want me to follow you, just let me know, it
will give me great pleasure to be your follower.
The next step is to create the social media buttons, I'm working on it....

Here are my badges....if you want to connect with me :)
