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...

oldie but goldie...


i realized that my musical taste depends so much on my mood, recently i just discovered that a few songs that i looove was singed by Elton John, and seriously i was so surprised! damn! why nobody told me about it?! i've been watching this video several times and is so beautiful! (guess who's gonna run to get a greatest hits album??)..
And now, i'm seriously thinking to go like Elton John (in the 70's style..) to a costume party!...

Enjoy the song..

this days...

I've been busy this past days, i would love to say that i've been just hanging out but, i barely had time to, instead of that i've been working in an art project that i've got on mind since... mmmm can't remember! but maybe 2 years ago... things are like this when involves creativity and an art project, of course the idea comes first (not like the egg and the chickin' thing..) and to be sincere i totally know what to do! is about portraits but i must to justify everything and not leave things in a random way... so anyway, it requires time, like everything tho...
While i was working on this, i spend a few days at my sister's place, she went out to vacations so i stayed at home with doggies and chickens... today was the deadline, just gonna cross fingers, this are a few shots from the past weeks... and yup! is a little chicken hatching, i must to confess i feel so surprised! like a child!...

MACO means...


i promise this is my last post of my trip to Oaxaca... if i told you that before to go here i was just thinking with my stomach, drooling for all the great food i'll eat and this is a confession, i gain weight and i have no regret about that! i still drool for the food, if someone can go there for sure they will no let me lie and taste the best mole negro ever..!
Now, i've got to go back with this post... first let me tell you that Oaxaca had a strong tradition or should i say that they had the best and great printmakers and engravers from all over the country! it also had open studio and printing press so the people can access to work in this studios, and they also encourage to join to classes and learn more... we knew about that because Toledo gave to the Oaxaca's Government his house so the people can go and keep working there..
But MACO means Contemporary Art Museum of Oaxaca, with it's main artist Toledo, we walked by over there and is so stunning! the pieces, the place everything.. i was so surprised to see a piece of a friend of mine (i feel very proud of him..!) and also we were so lucky to be on the opening of the exhibition of Sibylle Bergemann, her daughter was explaining the artworks! seriously! it was impossible to not fall in love on this museum!

Oh May i bring you some colors..?


I've been melting down here!! is still spring but gosh! is like summer, considering that our Summer Indians are in June (or July..) is hot here..33℃ !! and possible goes worst... but anyway, sunblock is my friend and i'll go out to the street like a glazed duck  with tons of sunblock... this past week i was working as a judge in child's art contest and gosh! i was amazed about how gorgeous colors and great artworks!... The theme was "my neighborhood", and from that you can imagine what kind of works can create since their point of view...
My task was to evaluate of course the theme, the creativity and the skills because it was kids with different ages, it was divided into 2 categories, 6 to 9 years old and 10 to 14...
I wasn't the only judge but we coincided that the little ones were the best using the colors... and after been working with this, it seriously makes me think and appreciate to work with kids
I took a few photos of the artworks, and see for yourself! and Feliz Día del Niño
*i laughed out loud when a kid wrote that he used patience as his technique...!
