The Kindness of Strangers


Been a long time since I'm here.
I confess I'm not much to share my personal life, usually this blog has always been used to disseminate my work, or other. but life is not always so predictable, like this post.

but if there is something I always thought was sharing.
this way and I need to share with so many good friends that I have known virtually, a bit of my life in recent months.


Time passed faster than I wanted or harder than I could ever imagine.



Cancer was diagnosed to my husband with several metastasis and prognosis of a very short life.

I confess that the world collapsed on me, I lost me, just wanted to believe that it was practically possible ... his recovery.

That did not happen, and a few months after me and my 5 year old son were just saying goodbye to the man  of your life.

My husband has always been my biggest fan and my biggest critic, companion and friend.

My world collapsed!

in these recent times the mixture of emotions, battles, try to be strong on the outside and be devastated inside, have been my recent days. Smile and play with my son and then hide me in the room to cry, so important, dear and irretrievable loss.
talking with family and friends and smiling, so that they too would not suffer and not worry too much with us.

Suddenly, a global energy came into my home, my spirit, my mind, my body.
An immense light appeared.
In this light I give the name of friendship, companionship, affection, ... but none of these words are strong enough to describe them.

The power of unconditional help exists, and all the people I met online during these times, did the most beautiful and unspeakable thing.
I have no words to describe it, my throat is tight and my tears fall stubbornly, but this time they are tears of gratitude.
Therefore I will make the link to the Blog of the WONDERFUL people who exist in this world.

Star of the East

I'll always be grateful to you guys, thanks for the strength that you guys are giving me.

 I went back to work, to create and I know that Duarte will always be with me and our son.

Thank you my friends for helping me to feel it so strongly.

What more can I say, other than a repetition?
Only my heart knows how big is  my gratitude, and you guys will always be in my heart.
Thank you!

You guys know how is the question of time! Speaking for myself unfortunately I can not do whatever I want with the speed I want. In Portugal there is a phrase that  say 
Fast and well done, no one can do !
But the site already has many things to you can see!
Thanks for the visit !

Recycled packages

For those who have a small business, packaging is always a hot topic.



In one hand there is the concern about safety in shipping, on the other the presentation of the brand, and ultimately the cost, which can be quite expensive. Usually companies that sell packages, sell in bulk, sometimes not very viable for those who runs a small business.

So let's talk about recycling.

The images below are recycled packaging of milk and juice (tetrapark), small scraps of fabric, glue and varnish.  Just give wings to the imagination.
Think of the image of your shop and with a very low cost, you have an original packagingdurable and unique.

Monday Moodboard!

I was researching what the color green symbolizes and here's what I found:

Green symbolizes self-respect and well being. Green is the color of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony.

Green contains the powerful energies of nature, growth, desire to expand or increase. Balance and a sense of order are found in the color green. Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.





Have powerful  and amazing week, filled with good vibes!

Etsy co-design intallation

The Etsy community in the Netherlands is working in a co-design installation, that will be at the big Textile Art Exhibition in the Netherlands www.stichtingtextielplus.nl/ on the 16 and 17th of March.


This big artwork will also be present at another event in  Belgium.


All European sellers were invited to participate.
It will be a large installation with small pieces of art (7x7 cm each).
Each shop seller  will do his little piecein the end all the pieces  will make  a large patchwork  installation.



 This is my piece.






I tried that somehow she was connected with my work.


I'm looking forward to see the final result.:)

And the winner is...



I must say that I never thought it would be so difficult to choose the winner of this givaway.

I am amazed with all the entries and so inspiring phrases.
Over the weekend, I read and I re-read all the comment, when I thought had reached a decision ... back to read all the entries ..... :) Was not easy.

I thought offering a necklace to all ... is not possible to :)

Having said that .....

The winner of the first giveaway of 2012 is ...


The new Azulado collection brings to mind the charm of nature's surprising shapes. Rather abstract forms resembling corals, strange underwater formations, lava stones but also the more concrete shapes of hearts and flowers. And a stunning palette of vivid, striking contrasts of turquoise and flaming red or orange -being Greek, it instantly spoke to my heart and spelled "Mediterranean"... 
If I had to choose 5 words for this collection, they'd be: MEDITERRANEAN SPIRIT, NATURE-INSPIRED and VIVID!! 
I absolutely loved it.



DESPINA


Congratulations Despina, I must say that I wish I could describe my work, with the simplicity and beauty that you have placed in this little text.
It is with great pleasure that I offer you this necklace!

But....

I loved all the entries, I know it would only offer the necklace, but I am not able to do thisyou guys were all so wonderful that all participants will receive 20% discount on all jewelry at the shop.

Each of you will receive by mail a coupon code for the discountit will be valid only for one purchase. This coupon is valid for six months from today!
Thanks once again to all who participated, the beautiful words you wrote.
Congrats to all :)

Inspiration - nature





This week my husband went to the market to buy vegetables.
When he came back I started to prepare dinner and organize groceries in the kitchen.
Suddenly I opened a bag and I see .... this ...... I do not know the name, I just know I'm in love with the beauty of this texture. now the problem is ... I am unable to cook such beauty, I can not think of cutting this wonderful creation of nature.







I think it will appear soon new textures in my creations.
Inspired by Nature :)

Have a lovely weekend!
