say a little pray for us...


I barely had a memory of the 1985 earthquake, i should had 3 years old or so... my mom run to the street with my siblings and i and then... 32 years later, same day, is just the same story... i can't hold myself, i saw videos and photos and is hard not to cry when i see people helping to rescue kids and helping each other and see all the buildings collapsed... i still have faith in human kind! i do believe that people are kind and generous,  i do!
If you can help my country and my people please do it! UNICEF and the International Red Cross are supporting with food, medicine and else...
The Topos Tlatelolco is a non profit organization, i already made my donation and i'll support all the rescuers and do my part to help people recover...
I pray for us and i pray for you too..

i'm getting ready...


This week was scheduled for test my workshop... yup i was so nervous about that! not because i'm gonna be in front of 30 kids but because i've got viewers, or should i say critics... and darn! that's the reason that makes me freak out! they will put numbers and reviews and ...!! aaghhhh!!! ....
I need to explain this better... in December, there's one of the most important book fairs (worldwide!, apparently the 2nd most important!...), i work in the children area and this will be my 5th time in row, with workshops that, of course, involves book but art, creativity, imagination and two years ago i beg, and i beg to had Sherlock Holmes workshop (it was so fun! i adore it although i lose my voice tho..) so this year, it totally involves art, illustration and narrative skills, if don't, well that's the idea, the kiddos will learn..
So well, i've got a friend (a partner in crime..) who is helping me to make this workshop go on but also to team up and had fun with kiddos... how ended up my workshop test? i really know a few things, just some adjustments here and there but... this ship is sailing guys!!!

first day in the classroom...


Oh dear! i stared to take some sewing classes... actually i have to make poker face because the teacher asked if someone didn't know different types of seams or make patterns from scratch and well... i just know a few things but the other sewing classes are kinda out of my schedule soooo here i go, on my sewing classes learning how to make lingerie and else... i'm super excited! and of course, the course is full of girls and ladies, like not man allowed, but seems like everybody can be pretty cool and also the teacher... just in case that i don't know something for sure i'll ask and lucky me, i've got my sewing machine at home...
i'll cross my fingers to make myself some undies (do not expect pics of me modeling..) but i'll keep you updated with my progress or my complains...

but a solo...


I read a quote that makes me think a lot (or may probably is because i felt it so identify with it...) "Artist are people driven by tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide" D.W. Winnicott.... and yes! is so true! or at least is how i feel, to be true, i don't have any individual art exhibition, just to think on it, seriously put me so nervous! in some way is not only my ideas but also my feelings, thoughts, is like been naked in front of people!... i guess is just matter of time and maybe because the first time, and then, the next exhibitions will be so simple and will flow so easily...
I've been working on a couple of paintings but i asked myself that it should be time to make a solo... (get me a Chewie! ;) )

A plant for the future

I've got this idea, that i'm not really really a great plant lady for the reason that most of my plants die because, well, i don't know but is funny, i can make them grow from seeds!
This little baby tree is one of my fav trees in town, i just found out that is a singer tree, i know, sounds funny but when the tree starts to bloom and when is full of it's fruits you can hear him sing, is so full of singing birds! i was so stunning when i saw it! i saw woodpeckers, parrots, mockingbirds, canaries and other birds..
Soon, i do really hope to plant it and so the people can hear it singing like i did...

Lately in the museums...

How often do you visit museums and the galleries? are you the type who enjoy visit museums or you rather go to other places?.. to say it true i like to go not just to see some art, in some way i think that visit museums could let us know what's going on around art, it also approach you to other perspectives, you can either see artworks from local artist or from other cities and countries
I like to see both, in some way, it can let us know different points of view and perspectives in art around everywhere... 
And yes, i've been in museums and galleries around my town and i took some photos of artworks that totally love

this rainy days..


This past days has been pretty rainy, not like just a few drops, like pretty badly storms! (in some way i was almost to take a couple of each animal's species and put in an ark!!) was pretty badly, but after all the chaos and else, the air is so fresh, although some trees around town can fall for the rain and the wind... i guess is the bad part when it rains...
I get deeply soak one day when the rain catch me in the street in the downtown area... i took some pics of my town after all, and it was pretty nice the air...

just a thought


I think when i see the sunset, where the time goes... is already July, one of my fav months, i guess is also because it means vacations but also because it comes the rain, everything goes green and fresh and just hush away the horrible heat... Is also time to rethink the plans of the year, should i continue with a particular project? did i already finish one of my purpose of the year?, is just half year, i'll keep my personal goals close and work on it but in the mean time, before the sunset i'll try to make my best...

weekends are for...

My sister had a great idea for this past weekend, she decided to envite a friend, my mom and i for spending the sunday just sewing... so my nephews went their grandma otherwise we couldn't work in our projects...
I should do something like this more often! not so long ago, a friend and i was trying to catch up for spend a day just embroidering, although he is kinda busy, but well, we haven't meet but we still want to work on that...
So the sunday was just sewing, talking, drinking plenty coffee and just having a great time. I couldn't finish my quilt, to be sincere, i stared the quilt like almost 2 years ago, i designed the pattern with some scraps that my sister gave me.
I knew that it was not gonna be a big quilt, but well, when i was almost to finish to sew all the blocks i just realized that i needed one more block... darn! just one! so i made one with some fabric that my sister had there and... well, it didn't match, the measures are smaller (funny, i just took the measures of one of the blocks) so, is a quilt in progress, i do really hope to finish it soon and then... finish another quilt that i've got on progress! i'm a case, i know...

we are the rainbow...

My state is conservative, very religious so close to be fanatics, is the mexican capital of the macho stereotype, the iconic image of what may think mexican mariachi music... in a very ironic way is also the capital of gay community (mexican version of San Francisco..) i don't care and i don't mind that image, i guess some people can feel uncomfortable about that...
I just embrace the rainbow 🌈with what diversity could means: tolerance, love, respect, freedom, support, decision, acceptance, empathy...
This past weekend, i went to the gay pride parade not just to support my family and friends but also to be there and demand basic human rights to our government...

this is what i find for June!

June and July is like our Indian Summer, is humid, rainy and cloudy, trust me, my hair knows that the weather is so damn humid!, even when the city can become so Apocalyptic with the rains and the storms, the fields and everything started to be fresh and green... is perfect for visit any park and for some picnic...
I'll share you some pretty cool stuff i just found on Etsy, i just it want all!! 

This is a great accessory for feminine style, is cute, very durable and will be perfect for a Bride's maid, handmade and made with leather by SmArtAnna

To die for this skirt! is just gorgeous! Totally vintage, 1950's, highwaiste, cotton and could be a perfect match for a picnic day, you can find it in ZappasVintage 


I guess is for obvious reasons that i love this Tote Bag, is made it 100% cotton, great for groceries, carrying books or just because we love tacos so much, from TheBoldBanana


I must to confess that i love this plate not just because the colors but the garland! so pretty Brazilian design, this store had great pieces, from ZuppaAtelier

my first baby quilt...




If it wasn't because my sister, i've may probably never been interested in quilts, it's funny because my mom teached me how to sew although my sister wasn't interested to learned... guess she changed her mind and now she is pretty badass making quilts... well, she showed me and teach me a few things, log cabin, tricks, do and don't about sewing quilts, also my mom helped a lot, she learned basic sewing things but also how to make patterns from scratch, due her family couldn't afford her classes, she just learned by herself...
I made a few little things like cushions but it was just very basic, not a bigger quilt than that... So when the year started i decided to make a baby quilt for a couple of friends, i choosed very random but fresh colors, because i didn't know if it was a baby girl o boy.. and after a month i was already finished "the hardest" part, i was asking my sister if she can help me to do the rest but she was pretty busy doing the makeover on her house, so well, time flies..

A week ago my friends organized a baby shower, i wasn't finish the quilt, i didn't know how to do it but then, my mom just told me that she know how to do the rest of the baby quilt... seriously! i knew that it was going to be full time work for this but didn't know how much!... i'm gonna make the story short, we just finished the quilt in 18 hours or less... yup! my mom is such a badass with super sewing powers!! i'm so grateful to her

Vintage is the reason...


If you are the kind of person with a big conscience with the nature and with the whole planet you may be agree with this post...
I can't considere myself a person who is fully concern with my planet, if i could i can use some of my fridge waste into compost, but i live in an apt, i really don't have much space for compost, my second option is just save it to my sis's chickens... but also is not just about food and else, i recently read that most of the countries toss a lot of clothes to the garbage!, and this clothes are perfectly fine... good to see that there's a lot of tutorials on internet about recycle and reuse old clothes, have you tried to do one of this tutorials?
by other hand, part of the Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is just about that... no wonder why a lot of people have this great exchange store and bazaar of vintage stuff, of course my favorite part is just clothes and shoes..!

There's a few on my hometown but every sunday there's a huge flea market with tons of stuff! my dad can be an aficionado of it! and what about me? well, i've got some treasures for my own, clothes that use to belong of my aunts or my mom, and recently, after been pushing myself to sell something else than my buntings and embroidery garlands i decided to put a few of some vintage stuff in my etsy shop...
