I’m so happy to tell you that I’ve decided to offer a bigger variety of products on my online shop at Society6.
With the last art-print uploaded yesterday -“I love you fore-e-e-ver”- I’ve decided to also start offering mugs, tote bags, kids and adults t-shirts, throw pillows and yes… super cute onesies!
More designs are being created and uploaded in the upcoming weeks.
I want to say thank you in advance for sharing this post with your friends and family and thanks for shopping at my online shop! Your money becomes coffee giving this mom the boost to create more art! 😛
Thanks folks and happy shopping!
Pillows: This pillow would look lovely in a nursery.
Mugs: A nice way to start your morning, feeling loved.
Kids T-shirts: The perfect match, kids and unconditional love.

but then again, where does “the whole picture” end?
I found this great fabric with the world map on sale at my local fabric store and I thought it would be nice to have it at home and teach Marco where some of our friends and family live.
I’m still a beginner at sewing but I discovered that I can actually sew anything… as long as it has a rectangular shape. That’s how I thought about using this fabric to make some sheets for Marco’s crib.
I followed this tutorial and I were amazed at how easy it actually was to sew sheets, even using an elastic band one the edges.
It’s nice to wash the fabric before, in case it shrinks. Also, measure the crib mattress to customize the pattern. I used a 12″ square instead of the 9″ suggested by the tutorial.
This project took about 2 hours but it was a lot of fun and I felt so good after seeing it done!
During the weekend, when I put him to bed, I told him where some of our dear friends and family live. He didn’t get much yet because when I asked for his aunt Barbarita -who lives in Barcelona- he pointed to Moscow… but we’ll get closer with some more practice!.

Last week, looking for something to do for Marco’s first day of preschool I went to the art supply aisle at Target and I saw a chalkboard calendar kit. But, since I’m trying to re-use what I already have, I decided to do something similar by myself.
With a cup and a black pencil, I drew circles over a black construction paper. Then, I used my sakura gelly roll white 08 to do the letters over the circles.
I put the circles on Marco’s bedroom door and I took some pictures of him playing with the letters, spontaneous and simple.
I’d love to hear what you did for your little one first day of school picture!
I sewed the parts creating a rectangle. This was going to become the blanket’s filling.
I got these lovely fabrics for the blanket at my local fabric store. I needed 1 yard of each.
I put the filling in the middle and I sewed a rectangle leaving about 10 cm. over the edges.
Then, I unstitched some of the corners to sew correctly the edges.
And after 3 hours, the project was done and it looked great!
You can adjust even more the filling by adding some stitches to the middle part of the blanket, using a cross-stich like in a quilt.
This project was so easy. I didn’t use patterns, I just took the measures properly and used a lot of pins! If you want to do this and need any help, let me know!
Happy first day of school!
