Little treats

I wanted this ring from NiuTaller for a long time. Finally it's on my hand. I love it! :)
Also I love that there is a person and her story behind this ring. When I see it, I always remember Mónica - the person who created it.......I love the warmth of handmade. :)

I love just everything about this print: image, paper, colors, ink....
Also it came in recycled package and I love it :)

here and now

Looking at my son I can see very well  how kids know to live here and now...they live every instant so intensive...
They can teach us to live in the present...


Amb n'Arnau veig molt bé que els nins són especialistes de viure aqui i ara...ells viuen cada instant amb tanta intensitat...
Hi podem aprendre molt d'ells a viure al present....




I love accordion. It has so much soul...
I thought I'd like to learn to play it. And today I discovored an accordion at home.
My husband said it's his bands accordion...
I asked if I can play it? I'd like to learn...
He said: yes, use the opportunity...

It's incredible... we've got everything we need. We just need to be able to see it...


M'encanta l'acordió. Té una ànima preciosa!
Vaig pensar que pot ser m'agradaria aprendre a tocar-ho. I avui he decobert un acordio a casa.
El meu home ha dit que és del seu grup...
Li he preguntat si el puc tocar? M'agradaria aprendre'n...
M'ha dit: sí, aprofita l'oportunitat...

És increïble.... tenim tot el que necessitam. Només hem de ser capaços de veure-ho...

Here almond trees are already blooming...
Have a great cozy week-end!


Aquí ja floreixen els ametllers...
Que tingueu un cap de setmana acollidor i bo!

New stamps

Recently I found some awesome stamps and couldn't resist to buy them!
Today I played with them combining different stamps and made these note cards. I love them!

From sketch to life

Rarely I sketch something.

Rarament faig esbossos.

sketch
This is the sketch of Suspended pieces.

Aquest és l'esbós de penjolls "Suspesos"

sketch
Initially I wanted to finish them with twigs, but finally it was difficult to find such small and sturdy twigs and I left this idea apart. After few months having them in the drawer I decided to finish them with pearls and I think it worked out perfectly! Love the contrast and harmony between the clay and pearls!

 Inicialment volia acabar aquests penjolls amb branquetes de pi, però finalment ha estat difícil trobar branquetes petites i fortes. Després de tenir les peces dins el calaix durant mesos vaig decidir acabar-les amb perles i crec que aquesta combinació ha funcionat perfectament! M'encanta el contrast i l'harmonia entre el fang rugós i les perles tan perfectes!

Suspended
Oh yes, this is my little helper! :)

Ah, i aquest és el meu petit ajudant! ;)

Feast!

After a long long time dreaming about I could adopt one Naughty feeling from Mitsy's 99 Feelings project.
I have to confess: It was love at first sight. Mitsy has a wonderful blog and everything she does is just beautiful!
I was happy to meet Mitsy in person in Amsterdam, in Westerpark, on Etsy sellers meeting!
Marta, Mitsy and Linda
I don't know why, but I loved Naughty to begin my collection. Probably because I love things made with sense of humor and this small babushka with a pig's tail makes me smile. :)
Feast!
Tatam! Surprise was waiting for me on the post office: Naughty arrived very fast!
Opening the box was a feast!
Arrived!
A cute box inside the box!
Artmind
Such a sweet package!
Naughty
Oh, dear Naughty, welcome home! :)
Naughty feeling from Mitsy
Thank you, Mitsy for all the sweet extras!

Isn't fun?
Check Mitsy's blog here and her shop here !

There was a surprise for my son as well! A warm hat from Sophie from the NorthCrowStudio 
Thank you Sophie! :)


Oh, yes, just remebering: don't forget to enter my Giveaway! It ends on the 23rd of January.
