Halloween Is Getting Closer And Closer!

My most favorite time of the year is getting nearer, and to start celebrating I revamped a set of prints with a new vintage look that I love. If you like to decorate your home for Halloween, these are GREAT to create accents for this wonderful time of the year!

All the images are available as paper prints and wood blocks, and I will be listing new images every day this week starting today, so be sure to come back every day to see new prints! You will be able to order them from the Halloween section from my Etsy Shop to get started early... So come on and join me in celebrating Halloween, the best day of the year!

Pretty Hot Mini Purses To Be Cool In School

I received a new shipment of cute purses just in time to star your classes in style. The last batch was very popular and everyone made them fly away from my Etsy Shop =)

The new purses have beautiful patterned fabrics, new images and they are great to store your make up, pens and pencils, your ID or any other small items you can think of.

I will start listing them on my Etsy shop beginning today and I will be adding new ones every day. Each one is hand made and unique, if you see one you like, grab it!!! Because each one is unique and special as your own style, and like you.... Can't be repeated ;-)

Everything started with a new color...

Since Mr. Danita is not home and my parents are home visiting me and my father is a very handy man, I said to him that I wanted to re-paint the studio. When I told my husband he gave me that "Are you crazy?!" look and I think he actually said that words. If you have seen pictures of my happy place you can understand why he said that. But I was tired of the pale blue on the walls and wanted something more me... aqua was perfect! But just thinking about moving EVERYTHING and then putting it back again in it's place makes me wonder what was I thinking when I said to my dad: Can you help me paint my studio?

I know where I got the craziness from, because he said yes! I definitely thought that he was going to say no because he's always complaining that I have too much stuff in one little place (which I do... how can I accumulate so much stuff in so little time?). So we have been moving and cleaning and painting... and since we're already moving everything I thought it may be a good idea to change a few things around.

For example, the bookcase on the right originally was on the wall with windows, in it's place there was a black bookcase that I didn't like so I moved the white one to the place where the black was and I got rid of the black one. I also want to move the big table on the center against the windows and I needed the space.

I also got rid of the jewelry table and now I'm wondering where I'm going to put all that stuff...

Things are everywhere (and this picture was taken before we finished painting half of the room, imagine how it is now!).

And here's my corner before...

And here's after, almost ready. There's still many things to do but so far I'm loving it! I feel I will have more space to work and things feel more organized and comfortable to work with. I'll keep working on it and I'll show you the progress soon. I can't wait for everything to be in place again so I can work again with so many ideas that are popping into my head with the new space! I already feel the creative energy flowing and building up...

So far, what do you think?

Danita at 100 Proof Press!

Today I wanted to share with you something I just made with my new stamps from 100 Proof Press!

Things have been hectic here and I've been very tired lately traveling a lot to my parent's town and taking care of my children and still running in very low battery (I just had surgery in my stomach a month ago, remember? I get to eat very little). My husband has been away for almost 2 weeks now and I'm think I'm going crazy doing everything, so not much time for me to paint, but when I got a few free minutes I ran to the studio and started playing with the new stamps. I think that is what I love most about them, instant gratification. A little ink and maybe some color and you're ready to go!

I used my stamps to make bookmarks. What are you going to do with yours?

New things in store!

Summer is almost at it's end, and I'm thinking about fall, and when I get in fall mode I start thinking about forest critters that scurry around enjoying the last warm days of summer. And being me, I decided to make a few paintings about the forest and the creatures that dwell in there.

I also work with my cousin to make this ultra cute little pouches, perfect to keep your makeup, crayons, change or camera and carry with you everywhere!

And finally, I got to photograph the new earrings I've been working one, and let me tell you, I want to keep every one of them! Every time I made a pair I thought it was my favorite! Here's a sample below. To find them, go here.

It's been a long time...

It's been a long time since my last post, and I apologize. I know you come here frequently to see if there's something new and I haven't do my job well. So many things happened that went in the way. I was out of town recovering from the surgery and It took me more than I was expecting. It's not the same being at home with all my stuff and my husband helping than in another house, even if it used to be my home. Then I returned and was my baby son got sick and then my daughter and now me. And now my husband it's out of town and my parents are here, but they get tired and I have to take care of many things at once that by 9 or 10 pm I'm exhausted! I also want to take some pictures of myself to show you the progress... so far I've lost more than 40 pounds! Can you believe it!?!?! I think that's what my daughter weights... anyway, I'll try to take some and show you.

But enough of excuses, I still have managed to do a little work and I wanted to share it with you.

First, I made some ACEO size woodblocks. They're the perfect size to collect (2.5 x 3.5) and they come with a hole in the back for hanging and they can also stand on their own on a shelf or at your desk.

And I finally got the 1 inch mini pin back buttons! I've wanted to get some for some time now and I'm very happy with them. They're extremely cute!

Happy week!
