New Jewelry And A Cupcake

I decided to make some jewelry with the new images from the Valentine's paintings and this time I created little, almost 1 inch glass tiles with very detailed images of my favorite paintings and collages. I will be listing them during this week, so make sure you drop by my Etsy Shop every day to see what's new. I'm sure you'll find something for you!

Cupcake doll

And this is my latest spool doll... She's a commissioned piece, but she is so very cute that I just had to share here with you =) Look closely in the back, there are some dolls I'm working on that will be looking for a new home soon!

Making pancakes...

I promised my daughter I'll make her figure's pancakes when she came from school yesterday.... We had lots of fun (and a tasty-artsy meal!)

We made cakes and hearts, houses and coffee mugs..

We made girls and mothers and fathers...

The secret? Just make your regular mix and put it in a syrup bottle... and draw with it!

Then decorate with whatever you have on hand (nuts and raisins are perfect for this)

and enjoy!

Remember the 80's...

Now that everything is so 80's I decided to try and make some of those pictures with several layers, kind of a 3D thing... I don't know their name, but if you ever saw one (that I'm sure you did) you'll see what I mean..

I keep it simple, with just one extra layer... still so cute! (Available tomorrow)

Also, I made 5 mini collages in pretty shabby colors... yummy!

Have a great weekend!!!

New in the shop...

I finished the Valentine's tags... I'm in love with them! They're perfect for gifts, to hang on a tree or in a garland... they're small and cute... and they fit anywhere!

I got back the dolls from Belle Armoire Magazine and they're for sale now.

My latest painting, "Merry go bird" . A 8x10 piece.

And the Love Girls are here and this time they're bringing love messages in Spanish!

All in my shop ;)

Last day...

Have you noticed that lately this blog has been more and more updated with pictures than with words? I think that's because I express myself better with images (and that I usually don't read posts, I just look at the pics). I hope you don't mind...

Yesterday we ate the last baked tortillas (how do you say tostadas, I wonder?) and my daughter immediately saw the potential in the box... she made a finger puppet theater!

(It later became a kitten house)

Hello! I'm Donkey and I usually play the wolf. And he's Peter.

I'm the Elephant. I play the elephant.

And I'm the rabbit and I usually end up being their food!
(somebody help meeee!)

And I'm the Gnome. And the Elf. And the grandpa... and usually the very hairy prince.. but I don't mind, I always have a job!

So much fun!
Now off to work!

New work!!!

I've been very inspired lately, working like crazy and now the results are here!

First, Alice in Wonderland... I couldn't make my mind about using spools or peg dolls... so I made both!

Which one is your fav? I can't decide!

Now the paintings. First, a couple of birdies. Inspired by the 70 and 80's postcards illustrations.

I read somewhere that 2010 will be the year for women in comics, let's welcome them with Wonder Woman!
Alice is waiting outside the rabbit's hole in case he appears again... she's pretty sure she didn't dream it... or did she?

A pretty sweet girl.. the sweetest thing ;)
Frida in pink. She must be preparing herself for a date with Diego because she looks beautiful in that dress.

And a girl with a big heart!

They were all added to my shop and are ready to go!
