On Vacation!

We are all ready to take a long trip to my native country (Ecuador), as I write this I am waiting for the last load of clothes to dry and then I will officially finish my packing.  I am really happy to go back after 7 years and introduce my husband and my two little girls.  Off course I am taking my camera and I hope to capture images that will tell a story later and you all can enjoy it.  I will post as often as I can for the next 3 weeks! Keep enjoying your summer.

My talented co-worker: Sandi

I have the honor to work with so many talented people at Hallmark, Sandi is one of them. At her Etsy shop (Benandi ) you can find the most adorable plush creations each made with beautiful fabrics and careful attention to detail (hand-sewn, hand stuffed & hand embroidered). They all come with their own names and stories that makes them even more unique and special.

My dream wedding!

Ok, Lately I have been daydreaming about my wedding. I am already married but never had a ceremony in a church with my dress, cake, friends, etc. So I've been thinking I can renew my vows and have ceremony and a party. I found this photo and I think this may be the style I am going after.

Creative Working Spaces

I have been dreaming lately about my own creative space. It needs to be simple and able to fit in one (small) wall. I found the perfect ideas in one of the latest issues of the Inside Out Magazine (one of my favorites). I can't decide which one I like the best! Photography by Sam McAdam and Styling (Creative Zone) by Vannesa Colyer Tay.

"Reclaimed" Crockery butterflies

Beautiful idea! I found this via Inside Out Magazine Blog. It reminds me of my friend and co-worker Maria Mignogna.  She creates unique earrings, necklaces and brooches using the same method.

Lovely Storytelling - Without Words

A Thousand Words from Ted Chung on Vimeo.

Every day: so many opportunities to connect...
What if you took just one?

I like how he uses technology as a potential bridge for a quiet moment of connection between two people.
