It's getting dark...

...and we better hurry to get home!

That's what these two little girls seems to be thinking about... 

Hi! I'm back!
Unfortunately, not always have free time to make some craft... But I'm happy to get back on my track!

This is my first non-totally cute ATC! I have this image for some time -I cut it from a soap envelope- and didn't know what to do with it... I imagine these two girls returning home from they first outing to the movie alone, so, I needed a dark enviroment for it, like nightfall, and for the first time I dared to darken a piece of cardstock with watercolor. And I liked how it turned out! Then, I only had to recreate an scenery for they -using the current Unscripted Sketches no. 47 - and that's it!

This is the original sketch:
Have a great week!!

Sunday project and some exciting news!

Hi! It's Sunday again, and that means it's time for another Sunday project -which it's usually a 3D project.
But first, I want to share with you an exciting news related with today's project: I started to sell my creations in a stationary store near home. Since I'm making a lot of notebooks and cards lately and don't know what to do with all this stuff, I had the idea to show them to the stationary store owner and she was delighted and very interested in get some for sale on the store!!! I was jumping for joy!
So, today's project were two exhibitors, one for my little 6x9cm cards and one for my notebooks.

This is the card's exhibitor (I love this template!).
It can hold 10 of them or 5 with their envelopes .
I was playing again with the notes of the scored paper and the title "Little notes" ('notitas' in sp)

The front view:

And this is the notebook's exhibitor. It can also hold ten notebooks.
As it's bigger and suppose to hold more weight, I've variated a little bit the template for security.

The front view with some notebooks I still have at home:

So, what do you think?

Failed dreams spring.

I was working today in two more ATCs. Unfortunately, I didn't became happy with the final results. I was inspired in the current Unscripted Sketch no. 45, but I don't go to present this cards in the challenge because in neither case succeeds in the sketch.

This one is completely made with my drawings.

And this one use Toga's patterned papers.

This is the original sketch:

I think my Spring's dreams still need to spread a little more their wings!

Nature's present and a Spring style Bath Set.

Hello there! How's going your week?

We had a nature's big present this past monday: a huge and wonderful Snowfall! It was like a storm, with crazy wind and a lot of snowflakes all day long. As this one has been the first Snow we had since arrived here, two years ago, you can imagine how I enjoy it! Of course, I went outside and took a few pictures for share this joy with you, although I know by now you all are tired of snow around you!

This is me with the snow up to my ankles (and a big smile!)

The wind don't allow me to open my eyes!

This is how the streets looked covered with the whiteness.

And this is me, again, enjoying a hot tea in my room after the ride. You can see the lamentable state of the pine forrest near my window after the snowfall. The pines could not resist the temporal and many of them fell down. So sad!

* * *
And for my craft, I've been working in this little bath set for get the spring spirit into my tiny bathroom. Love it!

The altered box of cotton sticks.

And my new "Good morning!" organizer for toilet stuff.

Wishing you a week full of joy, as mine has started!

ATCs keeper

Hi! It's Sunday again! Don't you just love Sundays? It's a day full of promises for the week!
I usually find myself with a lot of energy in this days, and I like to use it in some 3D project. It's the kind of challenge that I appreciate!
Today's project was this box for storage my ATCs. I've been making a lot of this lovely cards lately and I've come to need something for keep them clean and save. I know the custom is to keep them in a traditional cardkeeper, like this one, where you can see them like in a gallery, but I don't have it, and -you know- I love to make my own stuff!
For make the box, I've recycled some medicine boxes, and for decorate it used comun A4 orange color paper, Toga's patterned paper and two beautiful brads from

So, here you have my completly new, simple and shiny -just my style- ATC's keeper, in my lately fav Orange color:

Have a charming and productive week!

Contemplative little bunny.

Today's ATC came with another of my drawings: a contemplative little bunny.

I used the Clean & Simple layout no. 80. The funny circle background -even imperfect- is inspired by THIS creation of Kristen Powers and the little bunny was born inspired by THIS beautiful cards created by Sarah, from Sara's Paper Tray. After all, Lucy's current challenge is about been inspired!

This is the original layout:
Hope you like my little new friend!

Just for fun!

Yesterday I saw THIS video (she's so talented!) and was all night dreaming with that cute owl stunned with all the books he had to study... It's so funny idea! So, today I was playing with the idea an got these two notebooks... I still have to improve the technique but I love how fun they look!

When I finished those two notebooks I was still in mood for make something more and finally created this one with a cat enjoying the lamp's light. Love that kind of antiques lamps and the idea of the light and shadow, but the cat's drawing still can be improved... (Remember 'till now I don't stamp. All the images in my projects are hand-drawing by me)
Anyway, I enjoyed making this one too!

Have a nice day!

Blog's makeup update

I'm the kind of person who likes changes. Changes are always a garanty of renovation. They makes me feel like reborn... And this blog is not an exception in my life.
In these two days I've been changing everything here 'till I found this orangy template (I love Orange!). All my crafty energy and free time were focussed in this changes and there was no extra time for another crafty project...

Now, almost all settings are made in the blog and I can comeback to my manual craft.

Hope to be back soon with more projects to share with you!

Have a nice week and a lovely begining of March!!
Spring is around the corner, so please, enjoy Winter's last days!
