The Craft sale

The craft sale- so much fun- such a good time! I wasn't expecting to have such a nice time.
The people were generous and warm in their feedback - I was happy and excited to sell. And most of all, it was a pleasure to share it with my friend Tamar.


(Tamar- the beautiful gypsy on the left and me)

We hardly stopped talking for a minute!

She did awesome with her beautiful jewelry.


I'm pretty sure her shop will soon be online.

Close to the end, I got the visit of a sweet little helper: Theo.


He ate everything edible in the fair, drank hot chocolate, memorized my price list (without me asking him) and at the end he helped me pack the unsold pieces into little bags (he carefully counted 5 pieces per bag as I've instructed him to do)


On our way home, he got a present for being so good: a magnetic drawing board.


Drawing is one of his favorite games these days!

Working arrangements


When I was pregnant with my first boy I thought that once he was born I would have this working setting: I'd work on one side of the big bed with my laptop, and he'd play quietly or sleep by my side. That would last for a couple of hours and then, when I was done, we would play and cuddle together.

Seriously. I thought that.

It's funny how little you know when you embark in some things. Luckily!

After 5 years and a master course in babies, toddlers, young kids and humility I know better.

Last Saturday though, my fantasy came true and I was able to work with a myriad of miniature, delicate things, all exposed around me on the floor, and both my kids just by my side...this lasted for half a hour but I felt happy and blessed - finally!


Add to that some rare fall sunshine in Vancouver and you could think you're in Nirvana

Little Bags

My mom sewn little bags to mail my little pieces. She has always supported all my creative adventures since early on. When I started making paper I used to cover ALL the windows of our nice apartment in Buenos Aires with wet sheets until they were dried. They created a constant mess and blocked the vision completely, but she would allow it in her home- just to support my endeavours.




Martha you're great! I hope when they're grown ups my children will like me and enjoy my company as much as I enjoy yours!

Craft Fair

Shall I make enough pieces in time to participate in the Christmas Craft Fair with Tamar?

yes or no...?


yes or no...?


yes or no...?



I change my mind every day!

If you like the little houses on the wall, she's the one to go see more.
