About

Using an old world craft to bring you timely modern designs. Honoring my Mom's memory in appreciation for her unending love and care for us.

Thank you for stopping by! My passion for the arts and crafts originated in the beautiful environment that saw me growing up. I learned needlework when I was very young, still in elementary school. My mentor and teacher: my Mom. More than stitches and techniques, she taught me to appreciate the process and sometimes even more so than the finished product. She always reminded me to strive for perfection. She used to say this in a very soft and kind voice: "Time does not matter now. If you make a mistake you must go back and restart. It must be beautiful and perfect. It will be with you for a long time; you will always enjoy it more if we finish this well today."

I come from a family with 5 siblings and it so happens that I have repeated my parents' story. My husband and I are blessed with 5 beautiful children. They come across in my shop and they are part of my team. I have natural artists, fun, witty kids. The illustrations you will find in this shop are mainly the original work of my oldest, Juan, a graphic designer. Also, Anna is the original artist and creator of the day dreaming dog illustrations. :)

Although my love for yarn and art started at such a young age, I only decided to open my Etsy shop after I had finished my degree in Computer Science and many years after having worked in IT. I really want to continue to carry my Mom's tradition and pass it on to my children. Etsy has been the perfect environment to do this, and I am thankful for that.

I love art and photography and for decades I have been capturing nature landscape and wildlife as well as special shots of unique places and people I see when I travel. I'm sharing those with you and turning them into greeting cards, note cards and downloadable images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The colors of nature and the seasons inspire my designs and work. We live in Colorado and we are near to and surrounded by spectacular views of the Rockies. Those views and my sweet memories of growing near the sea with beautiful sunsets really come through in my shop. Every place I visit, although far away, remains vivid in my mind. I capture colors, aromas, sounds. Memories and places visited contribute greatly to the person I am today. I try hard to share those treasured moments with you in my listings descriptions too.

Well, now you have learned a bit about me. Here I'm sharing some pictures of some of my items and beautiful images of lovely places I have visited. I invite you to peruse my featured items and I hope you enjoy browsing my shop. Every item is made with great attention to detail, love and care.
