Starry Starry Night- My blue period…LOL

  Ok, It is not a blue period just a blue day. I have been going around in circles on the ShopVida site. They did not update their hi Res instructions, so I spent the whole afternoon fixing it. The pictures above are not a triptych just three separate scarves that I have for sale on…

19 years and counting

I have been all consumed in creating some designs this weekend for different products. Yesterday many ideas went nowhere but today I felt like I gained some headway. I love experimenting with photoshop and illustrator using layers to create interesting effects like the one above. I have a few ideas to try out on products. This…

Happy Mother’s day

Here it is. My little stall in the http://www.cottagecrafts.com/ in San Jose, California, I am hoping that this is going to be a good start to the scarves and accessory business.

Mental Acrobatics

Square peg in a round hole

This picture was how I presented my products to the guy at the craft place yesterday. I went to Costco for a few items and then picked up a few things at the grocery store. I spent the rest of the day agonizing on what items to spend my seed money. I bought some hardware…

Rollercoaster and Rosaries`

If you came here looking for amusement park musings you are in the wrong place. The rollercoaster I am referring too is the rollercoaster of emotions that our family is going through with two of the cousins graduating and leaving home for college. Today I attended a religious ceremony at my nieces catholic school. It…
