work in progress-new sketch 

Monday, March 24, 2008

We did have Easter, but Kiddo#1 fell sick just a couple of hours before the egg hunt, so she missed it all, it lasts less than 24 hours, is the same as Kiddo #2 had last week,  a full day of sleep and the next day they are like nothing  happened, and it was just a  matter of time for  #3 to get it so when he threw up and had a little bit of fever I just said to Hubby here we go again... so frustrating. 
The good thing is that  is a very short thingy and I can say they only get sick once a year (usually by Easter) but them being so young I can't keep them apart for them no to contagion their siblings, and I guess because of the crazy weather we have in Georgia at this time of the year is easy for kiddos to get sick. 

And I guess every story has its share of cuteness and this one is no exception

Kiddo #1; Mama? did the Easter Bunny came yesterday while I was sick?
Mama; yes Honey, I'm sorry you missed it, but your sister found eggs for you!!.
Kiddo #1; mmh,  ( she opens the back door, walks outside, stares to the backwoods in silence for a while) and  she inhales deep and yells out at the top of her lungs:


of course by the afternoon the Easter Bunny arrived for the second time to our house not without a note saying that kiddo#1 had to wait to eat her treats until she was 100% healthy, which of course she has been trying to convince me that she already is.

Earth Hour!!!!!

7 more days for earth hour!!  don't forget to turn your lights off from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday March 29...

Make Earth Hour Happen in Your Town

On 31 March 2007, More than two Million Sydney businesses and households turned off their lights for one hour - EARTH HOUR - sending a powerful national and global message that it's possible to take action on global warming.


If every American household turned off the lights for ONE HOUR they would prevent more than 16,610 tons of carbon dioxide from being released.





8pm SATURDAY MARCH 29, 2008

Yesterday I was able to take a peek at a few blogs that I usually read and Im soooo excited about this award that Jackie send me!!!  it was so nice, specially after a day of having a little one with fever .. she really made my day!!!! and I love reading her blog Mothering Nature, everyday she reminds me of the amazing little things that surrounds us and make our lives so exciting. 

My little kiddo #2 is still a little bit sick so I'll come back hopefully after the weekend and I'll pass this award  to some people that make my day every day.

For now have a fantastic SPRING!!!  weekend.

Sometimes it really happens...  nothing up there.. in my brain, I mean I know I still have it but I'm just without words.. nothing too share, I have being sketching a lot.. a couple things that have turn out o.k., but my camera has being stolen by hubby to record some bits of his own engineering work so I'll share some pics in the next couple of days.
I think I'm in reflecting mode, I'm in one of this moments that make you grow up as a person but you have no idea where exactly is going to take you, so I'm kinda of an observer of my own life right now, probably pretty boring for you guys that are reading... but anyway when I put all this ideas together I'll try to put them in words and share them with you. But in the mean time I will leave you with some old photographs just because it's always nicer to see a blog with pics.

IllustRation fRiday- gaRden

   (just a tiny weed)

Through etsy you meet wonderful people, and a couple of weeks ago I end up writing back and forth with a super friendly gal, who gave me a couple of ideas for my drawings, "just a tiny weed" came out of her head, and it turn out perfect for this week theme. Many thanks Amanda!!!

I have being working in this new drawing for the past weeks in took forever and I'm still not sure with the end result, I think I still have to work on it, maybe the little birdies need to be in different colors?

This past week was a crazy one. I hardly had time for anything, my laundry? oh! the laundry, yes about that... mmh is still piling in the laundry room. so I guess my to do list for this week will be:
  1. laundry
  2. laundry
  3. laundry
  4. and yes you guessed it ... more laundry!!
its just not right the amount of clothes that a family of five can have!!!
Anyway the weather was a roller coaster, Monday thru Wednesday sunny and perfect for afternoons at the park.. The girls had such a gorgeous time!!!

and then thursday rain, rain, rain which I absolutely dig, it makes me feel nostalgic I just LOVE rainy days... and then snow again!!!  Im telling you crazy crazy crazy!!! of course my kids were thrilled kiddi#1 kept shouting CHristmas is coming back !!! Christmas is coming back, pretty disappointed she was, when i told her it was not Father Christmas that wanted to come back but global warming that is making mother earth coo coo!!

illustRation fRiday - Leap

(leaping towards home)

From the series : The way seasons travel... 

This is Winter and after spending some time in Australia is time for the kangarugas to take him home.

Kangarugas - the way my husband refers to Kangaroos when he wants to speak spanish, the actual word is CANGUROS  (can-goo-ros).
