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!


  1. I bet you carved my name in it! I wouldn't have done that :)

  2. Mom has 2 old sewing machines & they both have Kim & Shaunna carved in them. You guys were just marking your territory!! It's OK!!
