Something New

I know I haven’t produced anything new in a while.. Been kind of without inspiration. But with the spring knocking on the door I feel it coming again. Been outside sipping every ray up. How about you guys?!

Here is my newest addition to my Etsy shop: A set of 2 Poppy Flower Prints. 🙂 Each print is 8×10 inches. Works wonderfully on any wall in any room. Let’s bring back some colors in our lives!

Happy Easter

Just sending you all Happy Easter and happy holiday wishes from NYC. I have spent most of my time today at the Broadway dance center with my best friend that is visiting from Sweden.

My heart skipped a beat..

.. OF JOY!!!

I just received the following email in my inbox and this is the first time I hear such a great news about the subject on GMO’s even if it will take a while for this to come into effect, at least we are walking in the right direction… And hopefully more stores will join the effort and we, the consumers will in return be able to make choices for ourselves and our families that really matters to our health!  🙂

News like this is a sure thing to make my day!!

Approximately 90 percent of all corn, soy and canola grown in the U.S. are genetically modified, that is, they’ve had their DNA altered to withstand high levels of pesticides that kill weeds and insects. Where do all those Franken-crops wind up? In your cornflakes, your favorite brownie mix and pretty much any other food that comes in a box or a can. But that could soon change. One of the largest food chains in the country has just announced that they will require labeling of genetically modified ingredients in five years, which could send massive ripple effects throughout the food industry.

03 / 2013

In a fewDSCI1721 minutes it will be March… I have waited for March for a long time, both with hesitation and with excitement. I know just by looking at my schedule that it is going to be crazy; crazy busy and crazy fun!

Next week I will be heading to Iowa for work. The week after that we are heading to Florida for a wedding (and somewhere in between I have to make a wedding guest dress for myself that I just bough the fabric for today – No no no way am I a procrastinator). And a few days after we return from Florida I will have the honor of having my best friend here for a whole week!

What April holds I have no idea about. Haven’t even thought about it. That’s what life is all about right? Living every day to its fullest. I will do so in March I promise. I don’t have the luxury to work it out in any other way! 🙂

I can look at the pictures of those I follow and I feel something, I comment, I like, I miss, I smile, I giggle, I look away, I am amazed… etc.. You all know what I am talking about right?! 🙂

Instagram is fab!

Value Life

LifeGives-3-BA little bit before Thanksgiving one of my husband’s good childhood friends got diagnosed with stage 4 Neroendocrine Cancer. When we first heard about it he decided to have a big beef and beer fundraiser to help him financially. So we did! We sold tickets, had people and business donate raffle baskets and we were able to gather everyone on January 5th, the first weekend after the holidays.

By then our friend’s condition had worsen, the cancer had spread… While 250 of his friends, colleagues, and part of his family was partying to gather money for his treatments he passed away… 32 years old.

One of his friends actually came up to me in the middle of the party and said “it feels like he is here with us”… little did we know that he was in fact with us then, in spirit. We all got the news later that night and as hurtful as it was I guess he picked the right day to go… while we were all there.

I never got a chance to really get to know him but through all the people I learned that he was an amazing person. “An Angel on Earth”… But most important thanks to him and everything that went down I met so many wonderful people. People I would never had met otherwise.. People I now call my friends!

Life is so, so fragile. Life can change any minute so we must LOVE while we can.

I found this quote when I was surfing the net one day and decided to make a piece to hang in our house to honor our friend and remind us of what really matters in life. After doing so I decided to list it for sale as well.. The quote is from Winston Churchill.

“We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give”
