Embroidery with love

So i went to the museum, and i found this exhibition kinda by mistake, wasn't my intention to see it, i went to see another exhibition but oh well... and oh dear! i fell in love! as you may know i'm a huge fan of embroidery! like more for fun and hobby than else, it helps me when i'm freaking stressful or just because i like it and that's it... so this exhibition is about love letters or so, embroidered in handkerchief, in Portugal, the young couples uses this tradition as a declaration of love, the girl embroider the handkerchief with a poem or rhyme with a very delicacy design, unique and personal for the lucky guy.. the tradition had like a 100 years, at our days is still present but now the guys can embroider too... i took some pics, i love everything! it was impossible not to!

Vintage hunter...

Should i call myself a vintage hunter!? or is just a hobby or why is that i love to collect and seek for Vintage goodies?!... thanks life that i was asking for and then is like that life bring them to me to admire them and then trying not to use this goodies but just see if someone else can use them, wear them or else...
i guess i found this lovely things because i'm kinda a seeker and also because is like it was meant to be found it... anyway, this may had your name on it, i'm about to put it on my Etsy shop! another owner or someone who loves to get something Vintage too... Long Life to the Vintage Collectors!!!
Happy new Year and so much love to you my dearest readers!

Teotihuacan..

There's is a place where i used to see it so often in my Mexico's history books when i was in school.. Apparently Teotihuacan was a city near by to México city where the people over there was never found then the aztec passed near by and that was a little bit more than 900 years ago... how do they found it?! it seems like it was like a little hills located in a very specific areas and archeologists from around the world help our local archeologists to rebuilt them...
My brother gave me this little treat to visit this pyramids that i used to see only in my school books, so we walked a lot, we climb stairs to the moon pyramid (the Sun's pyramid was so over crowded) under a nice warm sun...
My fav pyramid was the Quetzalcoatl, with the big sculptures near to the stairs (you can't 
climb over there but i took some photos near by) so you can see the little details like sea shells, corn and spirals graved on the stone...
So is a must to, if you go to México city, you wont regret it, trust me!

my workshop

How can i explain that everytime that i'm on my workshop eventually i realized that may probably the workshop is also for me, like if i was another kid learning there too... This year my workshop was pretty cool, based on Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling and Diana Wynne Jones books.. about what? well, basic and mostly on spells, invocations, potions and rhymes... is a funny mix but! it was awesome... why?! well, me and my very idealistic things about how to make a spell or invocation in order to get something but specially ask for something in specific... 
i told to the kids that it is not the same ask for good luck if you don't said specific to what... is not the same have a good luck in the school or while playing or while you walk on the street so if you ask for good luck you better let clear to what or when or how... 
i had a great time tho, even when one day i just get terrible sick, i was food poisoning but don't care, wasn't a great year for my health but i had a great time there...
at the end of my workshop i was totally speaking everything with rhymes... spanish rhymes aren't the easiest but kiddos nailed pretty good tho!!

J & G wedding quilt

Once upon a time... (i always wanted to started a post with that..!), well, after Julie told me to save the date for her wedding, i started to think what would be the perfect gift, i should let you know that i totally refuse to give as a present any of my paintings, just for very and merely personal reason... you may remember that some year ago or so i gave to one of my friends a baby quilt for of course, their first baby... (i finished that quilt the right day of the baby shower!).. so i though myself not to do the same thing and being in hurry sewing and quilting days before the wedding! so i started the quilt in all Easter week and my vacations... it really was vacations even when it seems like not, but sewing can be soooo relaxing (if you are not in pressure...), so i didn't use any pattern, i like to do a free design and choosing colors by my own preference of colors and schemes... i thought that i'll finish it in August but then i barely had time to sew... darn... i had everything, the fabric, the bias tape with a gorgeous color, the lining... except the time... duh! so after a very awful flu, a very stressful days working on my workshop and test, and else, i finish the quilt the same day of the wedding haaaahaha i know... i'm a case!
But they totally love it! can't express myself and tell you guys the feeling of making something to someone you love, i mean, is quite different, i love and i adore to paint but the sensation of making both is really different...
If another of my friends invite me to their wedding, i may do another quilt... or should i learn to knit and make a granny square blanket or so? dunno, for sure give love materialized in a quilt or a painting or a blanket or whatever handmade is, for sure is something totally made with love

Love will be the reason

I meet Julie when i was a teenager, we became so close and share the same sense of humor, interests and dunno i guess our friendship matches because... i guess some friendships can last...
We went to the same high school, different classes and even had a little rough time because we were in love of the same guy hahaha....
So college was a different story, we barely seen each other but also life put our friendship back, we give each other the update of our lives while we were in college and after that ... we saw again to talk about our lives and jobs and loves and else
Then we worked together for the book fair, we make a team! we were like partners in crime!!
Did i already told you that she was roommate of my brother?! well they were and they also they hang out well...
So yesterday was her wedding and i couldn't be more happy for her! she get married with a wonderful women and i'm so proud for them!
so i guess friendship can be like that, they can last and change or evolve in something always better and great
