My shop is called 3Giraffes because I have three tall and lanky girls (like their parents!). I love taking something that has been discarded and turning it into something new and beautiful and completely different! I see the beauty in vintage, or mostly used up and try to bring new life to them through transformation into clothing, mostly for children, but also for teenagers and women. I try to make the clothes stylish, cute, fun, and if it's for a child have the ability to GROW with them.

Hey all, I'm Maria-Isabel the designer behind Agape Love Designs/Boutique. I am a lover of all things artsy and crafty, so you will find a lot of that on my blog... But I also love variety which is why you will also find me writing inspirational posts about my faith, fashion & makeup, my photography, as well as my weight loss journey. I started my shop at the end of 2010, because I LOVE creating jewelry and headbands and needed to support my habit. ♥ However it has evolved into something so much more. Now I still create those things, but my items are unique in that most of them have special meaning, and stories behind them! I also have several faith inspired jewelry items. After all it is my mission that God be glorified and shine through all that I do! ♥Much Love & Hugs

You Know When You Can't Find That ONE Marker...

I think I found who is responsible...

Sketchie.  The marker fairy.

She steals my markers, too.  
And sometimes my pencils.  
Always returns them...but they go missing from time to time.

If you want to snag her before she raids your stash, 
she'll be in my shop later this afternoon):.

Happy Friday, friends!

An Outfit.

I like girly-ness in doses.  

Mixed with something opposite-- tomboy. edge. grunge.   Something.

I have a few pairs of 4 inch heels. One of them is even cheetah print. And I realized the other day (despite the fact that I'm 32), a whole section of my makeup could be appropriately labeled *glitter*.  I cringe even admitting that.  And my toe nails are always bright.  Usually red or hot pink.

But I'd rather get a tattoo than get my hair and nails done.  And I love to have a catch.  I own a fair share of jeans bought directly out of the boys section.  Because "Boy Cut"  jeans are not really cut like boy's jeans. And I like my baggy guy jeans for real.

I wear too many hats.  I like to hide in them:).  And my mom once expressed her fear that I might go bald someday from wearing them too often.  (Just for the record, I'm good...Still good on the hair front, people.)  

I hardly ever wear my over-the-knee boots.  For someone with a healthy dose of thighs;), it isn't the best look.  But I like them for the bit of meanness they add to an outfit.  Nice meanness:)...

And what's a girl to do when her photographer wants to quit half way through the photos??...

krista smith

Make a funny gif.  

This is also the dance she was doing when she earned her first set of stitches earlier this year.  
Sent herself tumbling into the TV stand.  
After watching this, I'm pretty sure it was the hair.  
All up in her business...can't see a thing:).

So.

Let's hear it.

Do you vote girly?  Or are you more of the tomboy/grungy type??
I'm sneaking a vote in for each.

Sister and Boy.

Smash pages for everyone in the fam...

I am the oldest of four kids.  

The next oldest is my sister Rebecca.  a.k.a., Bec, Becca, occasionally Loretta, in another life Reba, always Edward-lover, and just recently Peeta-smitten.  

She cooks and bakes really well.  And sometimes brings us over a meal.  I am pretty sure she makes up some silly excuse just to bring me some good ol' home cooking.  She is lovely that way.  Always taking care of others.

She likes to host movie nights.  Sometimes it is just for the girls.  Most times it is for everyone in our whole family.  We all lay around in her living room and eat yummy desserts and watch fun movies.  Sometimes she does a summary write up of the movie.  And reads it to us all before she pushes play...which makes us giggle.  But we would miss it if she didn't do it.  I think she should write the introductions on the inside covers of books.  She'd be really great at that!

She is a rules woman.  
Sticks to them. 
To her guns.  
I like that about her.

And Bec really likes monuments.  You know, like the stuff in Wahsington, DC.  And museums, too. Loves museums.  

So I tried to fill this page with lots of things that make me think of her and smile.  The colors are really rich, because she likes those hues.  And the embellishments are things I've collected and saved.  Perfect for this page, I think.  

And besides the fact that she is like the biggest twilight fan ever (I really think she has an entire drawer devoted to just Edward and Jacob tee's), she kind of sparkles.  So, I added a bit of glitter to the vampire image. Sparkly is a good way to describe her, in just a word.

And one more page.  

Philly wrote me my first "I Love You" note this week.  

He has made me drawings before...but they are few and far between. Because he really isn't that type of guy.  And that's okay:).  He would much rather be throwing a ball or running around.

But he out-of-the-blue handed me the note.  Written on a Staples business card:).  It is super light and a bit smooshed at the end.  

But totally Philly and 100% perfect.
And now it is saved forever, so I can show him when he's 25...

Not every guy could pull off a love note on a Staples business card, 
you know.

The Zoo and Our Guest, Stanley.

Saturday we visited the Philadelphia Zoo.

Niamh and Philly were sent a Flat Stanley in the mail this week.  One of the girls I've met through blogging asked if her son could send his Stanley friend to our house for a little vaca:).  I knew the kids would love something like this, so I invited him on over!:)  

If you've never heard of Flat Stanley, you can read a little about the book series here.  I had never heard of this book before, but it seems everyone at the zoo knew who he was.  Which was kind of funny.  We heard the "Oh, is that Flat Stanley??" a couple times.  He is kinda famous in Philly I guess!

The kids had a ball showing him all the animals.  Stanley especially liked the polar bears.  I'm pretty sure he made eye contact with the one swimming around!  LOL.  And Niamh was very protective of him.  She carried him around the whole afternoon, asking for pictures and showing him the different exhibits.  So cute:).

I like to use ribbon on my pages.  I lay it flat, apply two sided tape, and then press it down the length of the page-- usually with a little extra on each end.  I think it's pretty to have little papers, ribbons, and material hanging out of the books.  They look worn and loved that way.  
Which they are:).

And I have officially collected every possible book.  The only one I haven't actually used yet is the green one.  The new big ones are my favorites.  But I think the regular size books are just the cutest lined up along a shelf.  I want to find a fun way to incorporate them into my craft area decor...so they add a pop of color and are easily pulled down and enjoyed!

Where do you keep your journals/scrapbooks/Smash books??
Do you allow others to peek through them?
