With the holidays approaching faster than we are all ready for, I figured it would be the best time to make a compilation of not just some of my absolute favorite products, but also the ones I know most creatives would LOVE!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is only a few days away! To get you in the mood and help with last-minute decoration, I drew this “So thankful & So blessed” piece =] This was the preview I posted on Instagram.
Today I am finally sharing the second and final part of my home studio tour. Before my blogging break, I shared what my office space looked like, and now is the turn of the sewing-room / craft-space or my girl dungeon -like my husband calls it-. Even though all these pictures are from a couple […]
I know what you are thinking! When was she pregnant again? Baby #3 was exactly a day short of a year difference from #2, so this past year was pretty much a blur! This whole having a newborn while super sick pregnant, chasing a 3 y/old while trying to run a business is a LOT […]
It's crazy to think that I actually wrote this post 2 years ago! (December 2013, Conner was a little over a year and now he's 3 years old!) well, better late than never! so here it goes: Life has been crazy lately and there's no much time to make anything, well other than food for […]
I was super excited when last week I found the perfect wood sign at Joann at 50% discount, it comes with most of the materials to make a wood marquee light box sign. Of course I had to add my own spin to it, and change the letters! I love how it turned out and […]
We are so excited to share with you our new baby boy Collin Matias =] He is 3 weeks old now, so we are still adjusting to the constant sleep deprivation hehe. We so over the moon in love with him and Conner is the best big brother, he is so gentle! We are surprised […]
It's not a surprise to many of you that this blog has been VERY silent for what it seemed like forever!! (Maybe because it was!) Right before our Chile vacations in 2014, I decided to take a little break from blogging, it wasn't really something I planned but it kind of just happened, taking care […]
If you follow me on Instagram this might be old news, but I wanted to share some of my new prints. A few months a ago I started playing with chalk and absolutely loved the medium, it's so forgiving and the fact that you can erase and keep erasing it's just awesome. So I wanted […]
I've been having way too much fun experimenting with my new Silhouette Cameo, making all kinds of paper flowers. So today I am going to share the cutting files and the instructions on how to make one of my favorite ones, a poppy flower =]
Today I am sharing how to make a snowflake infinity scarf, a perfect easy-and-fast holiday gift.
I know it took me a while to have the time to pos about Conner's birthday party (it was actually last month) but better late than never!! I had so much fun planning his party, specially since I haven't planned a party since our wedding! The inspiration for the party started with Conner's invitations from […]
I am not going to lie, ever since I was in college I dreamed about having a car with an awesome logo all over, like big-in-your-face decal. And of course not any logo, the logo of the business I was going to build. The first car I had in the USA was a Jeep Wrangler, […]
There has been a lot of buzz about copyright Infringements on the web lately. Mostly is small artist that are getting copied by big companies. And in all of those cases, I think it's very clear to distinguish right from wrong. Inspiration and copy are two very different things, for most people the line is not […]
Last summer we talked about having a set up in our back deck to have dinner/lunch and just chill enjoying the trees. It took us a long time to finally do something about it, one year to be exact. This summer we started searching around for pieces to try and set something up, but (like […]
I know I've been promising a studio tour for a long time now, it seemed like I always had something I needed to finish before the official “reveal”, but last week I decided that I've been waiting too long (and you too) to call it “done” when I know I'm always going to change and […]
If you follow me on Instagram I *might* have overloaded your feed with the sketches of the hand-lettering pieces I've been working for my #howjoyfulcalendar. And you might also already know that my plan is to send over a big part of the profits to a convalescent home in Chile, to help feed abandoned grandpa's […]
I am a big fan of Shutterfly, I actually bought my phone case from them and I've made photo books for family many many times, but one product I never tied until now was the photo cubes. For some reason I thought that they were going to be way too delicate for me (you know […]
