The other one

I share this other desk with my boys
in the studio/homeschool.
Manolo made
the blackboard/bulletin board for us.
The desk, and white flower pots
are from IKEA.

On my desk today

Getting ready to work.
It was totally chaotic before I took this photo, for real ;)
I'm going to have to take a before pic one of these days
and share it here so you'll believe me.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Autumn light

I just can't get over how beautiful
the light is these days.
I wish autumn
could go on for ever.

All these photos were taken yesterday.
What's your favorite season?

The Monkey has a name!

Thank you so much
for all of the wonderful names you suggested,
Daniel and I had so much fun reading all of them.
Congratulations to Pina
from Another Beautiful Day blog
who suggested the winning name.
Kristin from Kristin La Flamme,
and Doug of Jonesapalooza
will also receive a little surprise in the mail
for suggesting very similar names.
Please email me with your address as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for playing with us!

Happy birthday Daniel!

We are celebrating
our son Daniel's 11th birthday today!
He's been asking me
to make him a sock monkey all year long,
and I finally made him one yesterday afternoon.
He needs a name, so Daniel would like to ask you
for suggestions.
He will pick one randomly tomorrow morning.
If you're name suggestion is picked
I'll send you a surprise goodie in the mail.
Let's play!

On hold

My journal pages for these next two weeks.
My good friend Gustavo Aimar
sent me a whole bunch of little papers
to use in my collages,
so this is a collaboration of sorts.
Gracias Gustavo!
I've got a big deadline on Friday so
my next birdie will be arriving till next week.
Thank you so much
for all of the sweet well wishes yesterday!
It was a joyous day :)
