Happy Bday Tatum

My little Tatum is 1 year old!!!!! 

I want a gift really special, something just for her!!
(I know everybody will bring toys and cloths)
So I went to IKEA and buy this table + chair ... thinking that I would draw something easy :) at the end took more time than I expected :) but I had so much fun!!

Tatum is very small even to use the table + chair but I know ..... when I least expect it, She'll will be using the chair to climb the sofa :)

Houston we have a problem!!!! :) :)

I hope she love it... because I did that with all my heart!!!!!

 I lov this mini kitchen :)

in the past 2 years I discovered in me a passion for cooking 
I think it was because I fell in love .. Love changes everything 
because I really hate the kitchen of my house :( is small, colorless, without ambition, but I can't change much ( is a lease) 
hopefully one day I can have a kitchen that makes me not want to be in another room .... 
no matter how small can be!!!!!!  
when I saw this picture, I feel sooo happy  
the colors and even the small space is great :)  
also find that these are my favorite colors for the entire 2010 :)

Spring is here .. at least for me

penpal project

I fell in love with the penpal project!
I love the idea of sharing letters with someone who does not judge me
someone who just wants to express themselves and share ideas, dreams and disappointments of every day.
Today I received my first letter from traci .. I felt so happy
and suddenly I remembered that I also have many dreams to share
I felt an urge to clarify my ideas and bring them out
I really wanted to find the most beautiful paper to write immediately to traci but had nothing very interesting, so I decided to draw something to help me :)

this drawing come out and I like so much that I decided to use as a logo in all my letters
I can't wait to send out my first letter :)

Happy Bday Julieta!!!

the first friend I had when I moved to Dallas was julieta, is an excellent person and very good friend
we are completely different, although we share some tastes by coincidence, accident or conviction.
We met at my 29th birthday, 4 years ago.....Yesterday was her birthday and wanted to buy a giftcard for a spa, but my budget dosen't help me: (
So I bought her a bottle of red wine and made a card with the best wishes that I have for her :)

mini wallet

My first project was this mini wallet :)
I needed a gift and I think it came out perfect
I did it with fabric that I left over from a project I'm putting together
and of course you can see that I need much more practice!!!!
(with the sewing machine)
but I'm really happy with the result!!!!! :)

I love shoes!!!!!

So far I have 20 pairs of boots and more than 60 pairs of shoes
I'm not proud of that... but I can't help myself


my excuse: most cost less than 35 dlls, I'm single, I work hard and one of my dreams has always been to have a large closet ... so when that happens I already have everything that fill :)

I made a promise not to buy any shoe until 2011 (the gifts are another story ha ha)
but to keep my taste in shoes, I decided to decorate the boxes, that will keep me busy and excited with all the beautiful shoes I already have.

happily ever after!

few years ago my sister "D" met the guy of her dreams
(I like to think she dream a lot at that time)
So one day in the circus and with the help of a clown
the charming prince ask her.... will you marry me??
of course she said "yes"
and she was happy
(for a few months)

busy with the dress, the church, the flowers and all that stuff
she don't have more time to dream!!!

long story... short
the wedding has been canceled

the good thing : she keep the beautiful dress and her dreams... :)
and she really is happily ever after!!!

Pd. this keepsake box was my first gift for her wedding
the bad thing is she can't use the box again because is personalized
with the clown.. I mean the charming prince
