It's Fashion Friday!!! I'm sorry I've been away this week, a lot going on as usual plus I've been a little under the weather. Anyway, here we are for another Fashion Friday and I just love this idea that I saw on My Chic Life. I've always hated how society (unfortunately including myself sometimes) just lets the entertainment world and media dictate what is in style and what they should like. At Mashia Crafts we stand for individuality, personality & identity. We love pieces that show who you really are and wearable art that tells a story, your story!
So i thought that these glasses where a great way to show the world who I am and that I simply don't care if people think I'm crazy because I am, and I love it! So, here's how I made them:
You will need:
It will take you a while to get used to seeing through the lenses. Also, people WILL stare! But guess what? These glasses are great conversation starters and for a business owner like me, who stands for creativity and uniqueness, what a better moment to hand them your business card?
I don't know if it's just me but Thursdays are the most beautiful day in my opinion. Not only is it the last truly hardworking day of the week but it brings so much excitement and anticipation for the weekend to come! and now, Thursdays mean so much more to me because they help me reflect on the things or people that I am Thankful for. Today I am thankful for my precious nieces and nephews, today specifically for a tiny birthday boy named John Lucas. He is one of those kids that just steals your heart away and I am thankful that he is part of my life and that I get to be with him and see him grow up every day!
Last weekend he turned three and he wanted to have a Doctor's themed party! I loved the idea so I went online and found some beautiful inspiration. Check out this super lovely blog about party ideas! Keep scrolling down to see pictures and inspiration on how to have a DIY Doctor themed party!
The Invitation was designed by me! check out my portfolio here. It includes an adorable tear off appointment card :)
For the medicine jars, we created a cross stencil with masking tape and spray painted the red cross on them. Then filled them with marshmellows, twizlers, and gummies. The Tic-Tacs were a super big hit! We literally just drew a red cross on a small piece of paper and wrapped the top of the tiny boxes.
Each kid got to take home one of these. They LOVED it!
Our PR & AD Specialist, Angie baked these unbelievably delicious and adorable cake pops with the colors of the party.
We bought mike & ikes and color coded them. After the Doctor did his check up on the patients, he would suggest which pill to take. We decorated the Docor's offcie with this adorable Doctor Tool set from Target <3
The Doctor's outfit was custom made and he looked................ super adorable to say the least! ...and just look at that patient <3
Hope you guys enjoyed this Doctor themed party as much as I did!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope your Monday wasn’t so bad! Today’s recipe is very easy and a little silly. But, it has an adorable back story that will definitely make you wanna try them out!
Here’s the story.
About 15 years ago, three little sisters and one best friend from Colombia, South America were very very bored and they decided to play kitchen. But they didn’t want to play with their kitchen toys, they wanted to play with real food! However, their grandmother was very strict and didn’t let them play with all the fun stuff so they figured it was okay to play with easy, no mess stuff that they found in the fridge. They grabbed some crackers, cheese and limes and decided to experiment.
They were very surprised at how good their invention turned out. So much so, that they even made up a name for their new recipe and they fantasized about it one day being in a fancy cook book. Pepiliana Crackers was the name they went with.
Today, the sisters are grown ups but still young at heart and last night reminiscing about their childhood, they decided to make Pepiliana Crackers and feature them on the Mashia Blog! Their inner little girls were freaking out.. (BTW in case you haven’t noticed this story is about me, my sisters and best friend) who would have known that our recipe would one day be featured on such a prestigious blog?! :) Last night we laughed as we remembered our fun childhood days and we actually realized, that Pepiliana Crackers are still pretty good! They're perfect for a late night craving and the best part, they are under 150 calories per serving! So, here’s the recipe, and you’re welcome!

Today's deal is a freebie <3 for all you lovebirds with a good sense of humor that are looking to spend your money on all those things that you can't get for free :) So I really hope you like this Monday's design.
