I Heart Etsy - Cats

Last night I was reading to my daughter a cute book we borrowed from the local library. My daughter loved the drawings of the cat and the mouse that are the main character on this book. So today I choose a few products from Etsy that feature cats. Next time I'll have to look for cute mice.

We all can help!


It's hard to talk about design or craft when faced by the tragedy in Haiti. The devastation caused by the earthquake is massive. We all can help. Here are just two ways:

Text the word Yele to the number 501501 to donate $5 to the Yele Organization
or
Text the word Haiti to 90999 to donate $10 to the Red Cross

Both ways are easy and immediate. You don't have to provide a credit card number. The amount will appear on your next phone bill. The Haitian people need our help.

I Heart Etsy - Yellow

It's been cold in Miami for over a week! I mean 30o cold! You have to understand that winter for South Floridians means cool, nice days in the 70's. All these Grey cold days have made me miss the colors of summer and that's why I'm putting together this mini collection of Etsy products that use Yellow as their main color.

Happy Birthday!


I'm celebrating today! Can you believe is my Blog's FIRST anniversary? This day seemed so far when I started my first post. But it's here already, and I hope to celebrate many more. Thank you for staying around.

Beautiful Traditional Card Competition

I just sent en entry to the new competition launched by Tigerprint. The theme is Beautiful Traditional Card and you can see all the entries so far here. The card I designed is directed to the male audience that I find often overlooked by the designers.
I took a picture of the cake I got for my husband's birthday months ago, and when this competition came along I thought it would be perfect for this theme.

I Heart Etsy - Carnival Theme Photography

After I added two new photographs to my Etsy shop with the Carnival/Fair theme, I did a little browsing to find photos on the same subject. There's just a bunch of them but I still saw interesting takes on the same topic. Here are a few choices starting with one of my pictures.

New Photos for Sale at Etsy!

I'm adding new prints to my Etsy shop. This time I'm including photos instead of illustrations. I have a passion for photography and I want to explore this field more. The new photos available for sale were taken at a local traveling Fair. Then I retouched them in Photoshop giving the photos a vintage look.




The photos are printed at a professional photo lab. The size is 8x10". Soon I'll be adding a set of 5x7" each.

2010 is here!


Did you notice I have a new blog header? Just a fresh touch to start a new year that brings projects, goals and dreams. After a short end-of-the-year vacation, I'll be posting new pictures, illustrations and of course, great finds from Etsy!
