Feliz dia del niño!!!

Today we're celebrating Children's day in Mexico. I know you don't celebrate it, but doesn't it sounds like a great idea? We have mother's day, father's day, even work day! I think the little people deserves to celebrate their day too!

I made a little gift for all the children out there (and their parents who still have a child inside). Please click on it (the image will be larger), then right click on it, then save. You can print it, color it and cut it to play with.... and enjoy!

Feliz dia del niño!!

Bed rest.... and the fruits of it

Thank you so much for all your kind comments and best wishes. We're so happy and we love to share great news with everybody and receive all that good energy that we need so much right now. I'm on bed rest :(

The baby looks fine but there's a problem with the placenta, so I have to be on bed as much as possible. Same thing happened with my daughter, and the rest fixed it.... the only problem is that this time I have a daughter who wants to be carried and needs to be taken care of. Thankfully my parents are here helping us... but still it's horrible to be confined to a bed (or in the best case, a chair). I usually complain that I wish I had time to sit and read or watch the TV... now that I have the time everything is b-o-r-i-n-g! Oh well... enough complaining. Everything happens for a reason, maybe this happened so I have time just for myself for a few days because I won't have much after the baby is born :P

So that's the news around here. If you have been wondering where am I, I am here, in my house... for more than a week. My husband is helping me with the store and I'm still able to paint (wohooo!). Actually I just finished a few pieces. I can't sit for long periods of time but I managed to make some stuff. I hope you like them!

"Rosas en el mar" (Roses in the sea) 5x7 on wood.
You can read the lyrics of the sond that inspired this painting here.

"The three of us" 8x10 on wood. (Sold)
"The baker" 6x8 on stretched canvas (Sold)

"Me and my fox" 8x8 on stretched canvas.

You can find them on my shop. Everything will be shipped as usual, but If I take a little bit longer to answer your mails please be patience, I may take a little bit longer but I will :)

We're waiting for you my little one.

Working on new stuff...

Spring is already here! Finally days are getting warmer and the trees are green! It's such a beautiful time of the year! Perfect time to be outside...That's explains a bit why I have been neglecting my blog so much. If you have been wondering what I've been up to let me explain:

After arriving from LA I had to go to pick my daughter to my parent's, 4 hours away from here and stay there a few days (No work done). Then I brought my sister back with me. Shes' getting married this September and we went to look for her dress. She didn't pick any but we spent a lot of time outside home, but I managed to finish some paintings that are now available on the shop!

This week my daughter returned to school from vacation. On Monday, I prepared her and took her to the school on time... just to find out that classes started on Tuesday... bleh! That happens when you skip the last week of classes :P Now I'm slowly trying to go back to my usual schedule and I've been trying to get some more work done. I made new jewelry pieces, including rings!

Now you can coordinate them! You will be able to mix and match or wear them alone... either way they will look fabulous! I'm also working on some earrings and they will be ready soon. There are so many things I want to do and so little time!

I'm also I've been working on some material for the workshop and I made a few brooches. It's been a long time since my last batch... I love to make brooches, they get me into creative mood almost immediately!

And what about the new bags? I just got them yesterday and I'm preparing them for the shop. More sneak peeks soon ;)

Well, I think I better get to work.
There are so many things to list and just so many hours in the day!

Announcing my first Workshop!

Hello everybody! I'm super excited to share this news with you!

First of all, I'll be on LA again to attend the Crescendoh launch party on May 21st! Many great artist will be there and If you join me we will have a great time together!

And please remind me to go easy on the wine, as the very next day, May 22nd will be a very busy day. First, book signing with Jenny (and antiquing if I have a chance)...

And then: I'll teach my first workshop!!

Learn to make free motion stitched mini quilts with me. Already know how to quilt? Join us anyway! I'll be demonstrating some techniques in how to make the background, composition, paper fabric, having fun with paint and fabric and each of you will take home your beautiful work to display as is, or to keep working on it to make it part of something bigger. I'll provide the images and this is a class for everybody! Don't need to know how to paint or draw, just to have the willing to learn and have a great time!

The class will include a customized kit for each of you, a delicious Mexican dinner, and quality in-class support by four Teaching Assistants.

I'll see you there!
