Spring break is here!

At least for us. 14 full days. People in my street is out on vacation too and children is playing outside... who am I to stop my daughter from enjoying her vacation outside with her friends? So my little baby and I go out too... and spent most of the day outside enjoying the nice weather and talking and playing cards.

As you can see, I haven't been working much, but I managed to make a painting in the last couple of days. I usually finish it in one sitting, but this one was made in several nights and it's about music and color! I love music. I don't play any instrument but I can paint them! I think I will form a band. She will play her red piano and I'll have to paint some other fellows that make her company... but for now she's all I've got and the weather is so beautiful I think I'll head outside again!

The Little Prince...

Available here.

"For millions of years flowers have been producing thorns. For millions of years sheep have been eating them all the same. And it's not serious, trying to understand why flowers go to such trouble produce thorns that are good for nothing? It's not important, the war between the sheep and the flowers?... Suppose I happen to know a unique flower, one that exists nowhere in the world except on my planet, one that a little sheep can wipe out in a single bite one morning, just like that, even without realizing what he's doing - that isn't important? If someone loves a flower of which just one example exists among all the millions and millions of stars, that's enough to make him happy when he looks at the stars. He tells himself, 'My flower's up there somewhere...' But if the sheep eats the flower, then for him it's as if, suddenly, all the stars went out. And that isn't important?'"

Greetings from the moon!

Mr. Danita and Little Danita love space stuff, and they told me that today we're celebrating 50 years from Yuri Gagarin's First Space Flight... So a painting was in order!

It's me, sending you a post card from the moon =)

A crazy week...

I can't believe it's been a week since my last post already. This last week was crazy! We had to represent a book at my daughter's school and we made a puppet show (originally we wanted to make a shadow puppet theater but at the end we chose basic puppets) and preparing the whole thing and between the normal activities and this and my parents here it was all running from one place to another. But everything went great! Unfortunately I just realized that I don't have any pictures to show you, but I do have pictures of the new stuff I'm working on:


They're about 1 1/4 inches wide and are pretty strong.

You can collect them, and display them together or individually.

I still have to take many, many pictures but they will be available soon.
I'm also working on new jewelry: Necklaces, rings, earrings and bracelets, the whole thing!

Pretty, right? I love how everything looks together!
Now I'm off to work again... there are plenty of beads calling my name!
I'll let you know when they're ready at my shop.
