Good News!

Said the kids this morning running into my bedroom when I was just barely waking up: Mica's tooth has fallen off!






































Theo said that the baby tooth is gone and a new and "evolutioned" one is taking its place :)

Tonight, the local representative of the tooth fairy (known as Raton Perez) will have to come at night to leave some money. As usual we leave him a note: please leave the money AND the tooth. We want it as a keepsake. And amazingly the good mouse always does!

Earrings

My shop is in need of earrings. I have many necklaces and few earrings and bracelets so I'm working on a number of additions

Some are here:
































Just back from our morning short walk to kindergarten with Micael. Day after day he will comment about the dogs and cats that we find on our way. There's the Perro Leon (Lion Dog) and the Gato Dragon (Dragon Cat). There's the Pajaro Ramon (Ramon Bird) and Raton Jamon (Ham Mouse)

A favorite moment of the day under the winter lovely sunshine.

Theo has read his first book: Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He read through dinner and breakfast. (For a little while at least until we asked him to put the book away)  So nice to see him into books!

Tiny pretty new pieces

I frequently get requests for small pieces of jewelry. In the 1'' range or less.
I've created a little collection of single necklaces and sets with "Petite" in mind.

All available at the shop

More Paper Flowers







































And this amazing little boy chosen by his friends for being the best buddy to have the honour of carrying the National flag at the Patriotic Assembly at school. Speak of a successful immigration story!

Working outside

It''s lovely to work outside, even in this mild winter climate.







































Unless, of course, it's windy and you end up picking up paper petals from the floor!

























Very happy with the flowers and jewelry together...a pretty sight!












In the domestic front, there's a new official scramble eggs master at home. His are the best scrambled eggs. That's because  he has the secret for them: mix for a VERY long time :)

It works!

Zoom in

I like to see things in a bit more detail. Here's the yellow arrangement in closer view.



















Today I have an enjoyable photo session for new jewelry pieces ahead of me. I'll have to see how the new table/setting works for the clay pieces.

Another wild bouquet

Another wild bouquet. This time I've tried peonies. 


 I'm definitely not preoccupied with realism. I don't feel that I need to achieve realism...it's more "nature inspired poetry of paper"...

Yes, that it is :)

My first attempt at making some flower arrangement with paper flowers. Prior to this I've tried many bouquets.
