cutting craze...

the onslaught of a cutting craze this month has had me blade happy and with it, collage crazy! here's another of this month's recents.
i wouldn't be surprised to see a recurring leisure health theme appear in my rabbit glued ditties as i have an astonishing amount of said themed periodicals. geez, i can't even remember the last time i did something sporty. maybe it's a sign?

últimamente estoy cuchilla crazy! y no con el vello de mis piernas(aunque también, hombre!) si no con viejas revistas de ocio y deporte. no soy partidaria de semejantes actividades o por lo menos no practicante, pero quizás es una señal para el nuevo año?

los eventos y fines de semana coinciden a menudo (de hecho casi siempre!). este post va a aquellos que celebraron su vejez una otra vez. hubieron muchos!

yesterday i had my first ever d.i.y. dyeing experience. i've had some exposure to the dyeing process before(haven't we all wrapped a t-shirt around a stick and randomly placed elastic bands around it for that quintessential 80's flashback tye-dye experience?). this time round i had to remedy a situation of white and yellow, colours which seldom make it to my wardrobe. the dress was formerly an alarming shade of yellow and some of the stripes on the shirt were white. so, i soaked them both in blue and here is the outcome! happy with the results, i thought i'd share these pictures with y'all.

i highly recommend trying dyeing as it's a swell way to liven up an otherwise dormant garment.

if my body turns blue, i'll let you know!!

ayer fue mi primera experiencia tiñendo ropa en casa. que grande! había hecho el palo más camiseta con gomitas de elástico en casos por excelencia de mi infancia tye-dye pero bueno, esta vez fue por culpa de los colores amarillo y blanco; dos colores que rara vez se encuentran en mi armario. el vestido antes era amarillo y la camisa tenía rayas azules y blancas. los deje en un remojo de tinte azul y voila! aquí los tienes. estoy contenta con los resultados y por eso he puesto estas fotos.

es una experiencia que aconsejo con vigor ya que es una forma muy fácil de sacar una prenda desde la oscuridad de tu cajón.

pero eso si, si se me pone el cuerpo azul por causa del tinte te lo haré saber!!

well now i'm at this phase where even more fun begins, clothes making! it should be good fun crafting their wares, however, sometimes i can set the anty quite high leaving a lot of room for disappointment. here's to trying to stay positive and uniting with the doll clothes making gods!

ahora, solo falta la ropa! puede ser difícil porque nunca sale como quieres. pero, voy a ser positiva y unirme a los dioses de la ropa para muñecos!

remember me?

it seems like an eternity ago where i posted these pics of a new series of dolls that i've been working on.

at the sea...

all i can say about 2010 so far is... busy.

por ahora, lo único que puedo decir del 2010 es que no deja en paz... a ver si me deja hacer más! pronto, quitaré el polvo acumulado y empezaré a terminar temas pendientes.

como lo llevas tu?
how´s your year?

happy new year...

HAPPY NEW YEAR! here's hoping 2010 kicks 9 in the rear.

for those of you out and about in barcelona, i'll be at the FIRA DE REIS in sant cugat from the 2nd to the 5th of january. it's an all day event where savvy shoppers can get a variety of all things hand-made. i'll be the blue canadian with frozen hands(it's outdoors!!!!). anyway, it'd be nice to see you if you can make it.


espero que este año sea 40 veces mejor que el pasado, nos lo merecemos!

AVISO: si estais por barcelona estos días, estaré en LA FIRA DE REIS de sant cugat desde el 2 hasta el 5 de enero. la feria dura todo el día entonces si teneis un momentito y os ape un paseo por sant cugat, estaría encantada de veros y tambien podreis aprovechar y comprar articulos hechos a mano para toda la familia! bueno, estare en el puesto 39 y lo mas probable es que estare CONGELADA.
