Uppercase magazine
I am so honored to be included in Issue 3 of Uppercase magazine!
Janine Vangool did an amazing job designing the beautiful six page spread
& the very talented Victoria aka sfgirlbybay wrote a really great article.
I am BIG fan of both of these talented ladies so I couldn't be happier!
Uppercase is offering a weekend special offering 10% off subscriptions
this weekend through Monday.
***I was finally able to snatch up a gorgeous address file
from my friend Sharilyn's shop, I get happy just by looking at it :)

A few more...

In the horizon
It was a beautiful golden afternoon,
we made believe that was a pirate ship in the horizon.
These shore birds live the life, don't they?

A must see...

I want to share this wonderful video I saw today at my good friend Graça's blog.
The video shows french artist Nathalie Lété painting live in a shop in Tokio.
A woman after my own heart. *le sigh...

Back home

Little birdie
Sandpipers and seagull
We are back from a wonderful time by the sea.
It's great to be home even if it's for a very short while,
I'll be savoring these last days at this beautiful house that Manolo built for us,
but also looking forward to the next one he'll make.

The big news is...

The news...
...that the next time I set up my inspiration board it will be in a new town :)
I took time off to organize our things and get ready to move once again, whew!
We recently sold our beautiful home and we'll be moving to a rented place
while Manolo builds our next house starting January 2010.
We are moving to the outskirts of the beautiful colonial city of Queretaro,
located 160 miles northwest of Mexico City.

I'm really excited to share this new adventure with all of you.
I will probably re-open up my Etsy shop the first week of December
if I have the internet up and running at the new place.
We will be taking a one week vacation at the beach starting tomorrow
and I'll be blogging all about it from our destination.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my previous post,
I'm so happy you liked those birdies!
