Portable hole by Kery Smith

hole, originally uploaded by keri.

I just found this very cool portable hole on flickr!. It's made by Kery Smith (Who else!?) and I already printed like 1000. Imagine what you can do with it!... Have a mess? Just add a hole and it's gone!!! Write your problems, put them into the whole and watch them disapear!!! Your coworker is bugging you again? Just put it on the floor and ask him/her to step in it... problem solved!!!

If only all were that easy... but it doesn't hurt trying :)

A new week already!!

And it's Monday again!!! Where did the weekend go? I was supposed to give a bath to an elephant this weekend... Instead we were trapped home because of the bad weather :(
Anyway... that's a good excuse to make some sketches and catch up in pending commissions with all the free time inside the house. And today, it's 3:45 pm and I haven't even taken a bath!
Well, I supposed I go directly to the shower... Happy week everyone!!!

So Danita tell us.. where have you been?

On vacation I wish I could say. "I was at the Caribbean in a vacation, that's why I don't update my blog". But I wasn't. I know, I know. I don't update my blog as frequently as I'd like... or as you'd like. But I have a good reason, really. You'll see, I spend a LOT of time in front of the computer. Answering emails, uploading work, reading other blogs... And every single time I sit here I think that I have to post. I have to keep my blog alive. But then something else happens... or nothing happens and I'm just in blank. I can't find anything to blog about. Not a single interesting word or picture to share. Some days I just think that nobody cares about what I have to say or what I've been doing and I don't update it. Then when I'm in my bed trying to sleep I think about ten thousand things that I want to share with you and many pictures I'd like you to see and I fell asleep. The next morning I'm blank again! And my blog keeps static. Until inspiration comes again.

So I'm very surprised that many of you had sent me awards for my blog! Thanks a lot for thinking of me when choosing your favorites! I'll have to work on those awards too, as they ask you to name a few of your favorites... I think I'll have material for another post with that ;P

And if you're wondering what I'm up with lately... I'm learning to crochet and I'm learning Photoshop. Playing with my wacom table and making experiments with shrink plastic and laminated dolls...

Here are my baby steps at this photoshop thing. They were drawn directly in the computer but I think I'll need to draw them first on paper and then scan it. I also need more work with layers. Don't be to harsh on me... I'm just learning! As my husband said: for someone who is the first time that works with photoshop they're pretty good :P

PFATT Marketplace "Christmas in July"

I finally finished my offering for this month's PFATT Marketplace "Christmas in July" theme!

It goes for sale tomorrow at 12:00 am. If you want it get it fast because it is an original and won't be repeated. (I secretly wish it won't sell though... it's way too cute!)

Here's a sneak peek:

Cute eh?

Oh and before I forget, thanks all of you for your comments about my paper collages :) It's so good to get that feedback!

By the way, how's your 4th of July? I hope it didn't involved fire ants, 2 1/2 hours wait and a crying toddler like mine....

Anyway... I'm working on my Etsy shop for an update... I'll keep you posted!

Have a great day!
