And the winners are...



I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving day!
I spent the weekend at my parent's home. I had such a great time, I had the opportunity to see one of my best friends who lives in LA and was visiting his parents too... I don't realize how much I miss them until I see them again... Anyway, I'm here to tell you who the lucky winners are, so I went and use the Random Number Generator and here they are!

On being thankful....


This year has been very good and special to me.
I'm thankful for many things (that we are healthy, that we have food in our table and are a family, etc) but there are some things that happened this year that will only happen once:

* My daughter learned to read.
* My baby boy learned to walk and turned 1.
* My surgery went well and I've lost about 50 pounds already (yay!)
* After a long absence for work-related stuff, my husband came back home.
* During his absence, my parents stayed with me and my kids.
* I was published in several magazines and had a group show in NY.
* I reached the 6,000 sales goal and people keeps supporting my dream so I can keep on creating.

And the list can go on and on. But now,  since many of the things I've done are because of you I thought a GIVEAWAY was in order :)



3 calendars will be given to 3 lucky readers this Monday!
Just leave a message in this post and tell me, what are you most thankful for this year?

And also enjoy Free Domestic Shipping in my store from today until Monday, just apply the code FREESHIPPING at checkout and...


Have a great Thanksgiving!!!

Shop update and new journals

My shop has been updated with lots of new creations, the newsletter has been sent (Thank you!) and I'm still adding new work, like these fabulous journals that were available just to newsletter subscribers before.

They're a true, one of a kind journal, with lots of layers of work and finished with a layer of beeswax.  They're filled with heavyweight watercolor paper and they're not bounded, so you can keep adding journal pages to your heart's desire.  I made rectangular and house shapes and every one of them is special in their own way. Different images, different shapes, each one special.

Grab yours here.

(I'm putting the finishing touches, will be on its way soon!)

This is going to be a huge update!

Ornies! Ornies!


I Wish you could visit my studio and enjoy the smell! I Looooove beeswax and now that I am in winter holiday mode I want to pour beeswax everywhere.
This series of ornaments have a very heavy texture and a rich, old world feeling to them.  I carved figures on them and embossed found items inside the beeswax.

See how beautiful they look together? Now imagine how beautiful they will look hanging from your tree! Keep an eye on my Etsy Shop and my Newsletter, we are photographing them and they will be available for you very soon!

2012 Calendar is here!



I'm still busy, busy, busy working on Christmas stuff (like some yummy ornies that I'll show you tomorrow) that I almost forget about my 2012 calendar!

 

This year I made 2, one just for Frida Kahlo fans and this one, with some of your most loved images from yours truly :)

You can grab yours here... and you can choose it with or without the vintage woodblock. 
They make excellent gifts and great stocking stuffers!

Holiday Paintings 2011 Preview

As promised, more pics of the upcoming paintings for this Holiday Season. I'm in love with each one of the paintings I made and I hope you will too.  Since Starbucks offered their Peppermint mocha latte I'm officially in Christmas mood! (There's something about that flavor...) I even started taking out the lights and the ornaments. And since I'm in Holiday mood, I made different paintings in different shapes and sizes and all look well with one another. I chose one palette and start working from it.  My wall looks lovely with all of them together.

The pre-sale will be through my newsletter that will go out in a couple of days along with some more pieces that I'll be showing you here in this week.  I can't wait to show you all I've been working on!

If you're not part of my Newsletter yet, you can join here!

And I'm off to work again... to many lovely things to do.

Happy Birthday my little one!


One year ago I saw your little face for the first time. You were so little and helpless. And now you're here, having your first birthday, already walking and saying grandpa's name.  You are my sweetest surprise. I never expected having you here and now I can't imagine my life without you.

  Happy birthday my little one. I wish you a happy, long life. 

I love you.
