This may be the last post of the year, in order to say that i learned a lot this year, i feel so grateful in several ways, not just for the thing i get or achieve but also for things i didn't...
For sure this is not a whining post, i rather find thing to be grateful than mocking myself (and that will be an easy way to bully myself..) should i count my blessings? or make a list of thing i did?
Let's go straight to some of those...
-I finally know (less or more..) how to sew a zipper! YaaY! with lots of tutorials, books and else, quite different when you are in front of the sewing machine
-I did a great improvement learning french.. i'm quite stubborn
-Believe it or not, i read more books than the last year! (2 that i bought in the book fair, and it wasn't a child's book :D )
-Have you seen scandinavian films? by far, i stared to be big fan of it! you better watch some foreign cinema, you won't regret missing hollywood films...
-After some several months (or maybe a year...) i finished 3 of 4 paintings! i'm planning to start a new ones next year...
-Did i already mention my instagram account?, is fun, is cool... but i totally refuse a twitter account!
-Guilty as charge for having a pastel crush.. (need to embrace that colors, even when i feel a total beatnik...) some day i'll paint with those colors..
-Learning that creative process is not something to rush on, but to work and investigate
-Last but not less, i finally get my degree! yasssss!!!

It was a quick and busy days, my brother and i went to fast visit to CdMx and even when we didn't went to visit some museums or other places, i've got to say that i totally enjoyed having such a great time with my brother! in some way, we been apart not because we decided to be like that but our jobs, lives and else, and yes! we hang out and get along often, with our partners or with our family, but in some way, me and him are so closed and had so much things in common, guess like other brother and sister's had, but since we were kids we used to play along, had lots of friends in common... but well, i may probably loosing my point in this post...
After 2 trippy and bussy days in an Artist and independent crafter's bazaar, we did a quick stop by with a friend of Alfredo... Johnny and his partner Carlos lives in a small and cute apt, that since the first time i saw it, it was pure eye candy to me!
If i can, if i would i may probably had something like this for my place, but, my hubby doesn't agree much with so colorful and kitschy things around home, and actually, i do like to decorate my place according to my paintings... still, secretly, i've got big crush for orange, pinks, yellow and vivid and bright colors... guess i should put some on my paint and forget the blues

First, i've got to say that i feel totally great with myself! at the middle of the year i was so pressure to find a co-worker for my workshop... and could be not so difficult except that... i'm so picky! i'm not gonna work with someone who doesn't make a great team with me, also, someone who can love work with kids with patience but be with character (kids can smell fear and insecure.. :P)
My last co-worker was just beyond than great, we can laugh and we can understand the group and each other with just a sight...
So yes, i heard a loooot of people who recommend another persons but in this case, i've got the chance to work with someone that i can totally get along..
And well, wasn't so easy but, one of my oldest friend (she's from college..) was my partner in crime and we did pretty well and pretty awesome! there's no way to compare, i totally like to work with both and i guess i see our work reflected on child's smiles..
I worked with kids from 7 to 9 years old, i even worked with youngest kids but, i realized when they been there, before i already know... Still! you may probably think that work with paint and kids it could be for sure a messy disaster, well, it can be but if you explain everything before to drop the material the mess can be avoided (in some cases... still my shoes had zero paint on it! YeSSSS!)
Here's a quick snapshots of my workshop
PS: i barely could buy some books for me but, tsssssss i already read one of the books that i purchased... oh dear!
