About Me

My photo
My name is Lorie Dominguez. I am happily married with 6 kids. I've lived my whole life here in the Mesquite area. I now live on our little ranch here in Scenic, Arizona with my family and all of our animals. It was here in Scenic that I found my new craft that I really enjoy, that is making crafts with recycled items. This hobby is referred to as "Trash to Treasure", these items are down the right hand column of my blog. I love what I do, and I hope you will also enjoy it! My Items make great gifts! So buy it and try it. You can see pretty much all that I make down the right hand side of my blog. If anyone is interested in placing an order with me, I take checks, cashier check, and money orders. You can place your order in a comment, or email me at Loriejuan@hotmail.com. Thank-you

New sewing machine!!

I have been using one of my Mom's sewing machines to make my purses. I think the machine was maybe 25 years old or even older. (Shaunna & Kim's names are carved in it!!) You could tell it's age by the difficulty of trying to sew through these thick Capri Sun & Koolaid pouches. I got this Singer Simple from Wal-Mart for around $100.00. I think it was a very good buy. I love this machine. It is so basic & simple to use. If anyone is interested in getting into sewing I would highly recommend this machine to you!

The Cutest Little Shoppers!!

I had 3 cute little shoppers stop by for a purse today. It is Jaiden, Abby, & Jacie.
They are so cute!!! They also drank plenty CapriSun so I can make more purses. Thanks Girls!!!

Check out my new purse!!

This is this new purse. I love it because it closes in the front. I designed this purse by what I would want in a purse.

My niece Brooke wanted a CapriSun Bag. She had her size, flavor, and everything else picked out. Well, I finished it last night and I think it turned out pretty darn cute. Brooke has very good taste!!

My new blog!

I thought it was about time I started a new blog showing all that I love to make. I enjoy recycling items into things that we love!! Anyone is welcome to shop with me. I do custom work so if there is something you'd like please leave me a comment and I can try to do it for you. On all of my Trash to Treasure I will ship, so anyone can enjoy these Items. I will keep an updated list of what I have for sale here at the Dominguez Family Store. For those of you who don't know I will deliver to you within 2-3 days of your order. (If you live in the Mesquite area) I give really good prices because I am able to get the item pretty cheap with coupons. So, buying from me saves you money and it also helps me to earn money so I can continue to be a stay at home mommy. (A job I LOVE) Any item down the right hand side of my blog are all item I do always have in stock, and are a great gift for a birthday or any occasion. It gives you a sense in knowing that it is a recycled item, one less item in the landfills & its making a brighter future for our children!! GO GREEN!
