Mr. Cateapillar

Really drawing, just drawing, is such a relaxing and beautiful activity...here my first design for a tea towel, inspired by a crazy caterpillar pink that got inside the house, my husbands tea collection and the love for drawing and color. Also soon for sale at www.spoonflower.com

"It came through the whispering woods,
down the grassy paths with tinkling little noises and sizzling sounds
With perfumed vapors
that were comforting and mischievous at the same time...
It was as dusk fell
that the master tea maker made his appearance
and they were all happy to see Mr. Cateapillar..."

who loves powdered milk? Quien ama la leche Nido?

Due to the recent terrible fires going on in the woods in Coahuila, Mexico, different wildlife face the consequences, three bear cubs have been rescued by my neighbor who happens to be a wildlife officer, and now they have to be fed milk for the next 5 months or so, considering they are like a baby...
The littlest is Golondrina a female bear cub, and the other two are male bear cubs
Debido a los recientes y terribles incendios que han ocurrido en Coahuila, muchas especies salvajes sufren las consecuencias, suertudos nosotros nuestro vecino trabaja en esa area de rescatar animales salvajes, y nos ha tocado conocer a 3 ozesnos, la mas pequenia Golondrina de poco mas de un mes, y dos hermosos hermanitos mas grandes.

on the way to the museum or She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing

Finally after two atempts to convince my husband to go to Monterrey, he agreed to go. I really wanted to go see Dominique Lemieux's and Ron Mueck's exhibitions at MARCO, one of the main museums at Monterrey. My husband doesn't despise art or doesn't like Monterrey, he was just concerned we could be endangered by going there, because of the violence that this city is living, as well as many others in the northern part of Mexico are going through... And when I saw Muecks Man in a boat, made me think that that's how alot of us living in Mexico are felling... that uncertainty in his expression, of what's coming next... a little suspicious and a little concerned.... and by saying this I feel like I'm undermining how I feel... because truly I feel alot suspicious and alot of concern.
And despite all of the violent tragic events going on every single day...at every hour of the day... with or with out the sun present... we must continue to have faith, work create and believe and help ourselves, our kids, our families to grow and become better individuals; so the future is something desirable and not a nightmare we don't dare to think about; so that in the future we can attend an art exhibit with a joyous feeling, with a pure expectation of discovering another person's creation, not with a heart filled with uncertainty and fear of what you may encounter on the way to the museum...
