Centralizing

Hello world!what’s going on?

Here everything is changing and I have some news for you:

First of all, I have decided to centralize my blog on http://crearescreer.blogspot.com that was the first I started and originally I wrote in spanish (my mother tongue). But after analyzing and taking in count all the time I pass editing pictures and writing in different platforms (shops included) I thought making one post in spanish, english and french in only one blog would be more productive.

So, having said that I invite you to follow all the news and abouts over there. Last week I participated on Etsy Craft Night in Paris and there are lots of things to share (you can also have an update and follow me on Facebook http://facebook.com/crearescreer and I also suggesting you lots of things and people to follow on Twitter http://twitter.com/anasousa_etsy

On my blogger blog you have also the option to suscribe for posts and receive them directly on you e-mail….

So, thanks for updating the info and see you around!

New Mapuche bijoux collection

Past weekend was a little strange… first of all I missed the event of Knit in Public, due to my insomnia on Saturday…when I woke up it was very late to go, and I was very tired, so sadly I looked on the Internet for another events in Paris and I found this event of independent designers where I found Lygo a cooperative that sells little things made by African people, in their continent… so if you buy something from them is a pure fair trade… I thought I’ve seen them before, and effectively I did it in “A little market” a french platform to sell handmade… if you speak the language go and publish there, is little but friendly..;

So…. I came to present the new line of Mapuche bijoux I’ve made… this time is a more “unisex” one made in contrasting colors and with a little more rough texture that the one before…. here I show you two bracelets, but I have made more rings this time… I’ll show them in the next posts…

Google Group: Textil Art

Reviewing things I've done this year I remembered that when I was in Granada, Spain,I had launched a Google Group to put all information that we found interesting and was intended for people involved with me on a course of Textile Art at "The School of Art of Granada".  
Unfortunately the only person with networking habits was me, therefore almost all files were uploaded by me. So, a couple of days ago I told myself: if this group does not work this way, could be work in another... and I decided to open it for anyone who wants to participate ...  is as simple as sending an e-mail to the group or via this blog (find a link on the right hand side of page) (if this doesn't work you can do it in my spanish blog http://crearescreer.blogspot.com
I would love to see it developed and with a colaborative sense.The idea is taking this group as our library, archive of interesting images, promotional events and a place where we can add all interesting stuff . If you see all things written in spanish don't panic, it is going to be a multilingual group, and I don't want to discriminate anybody...
I hope you like the idea!

Some sites that you cannot miss

Between yesterday and today I have discovered this sites I wanted to share with you… I bet if you are into fibers you are going to love them

It seems that 2009 is the year of natural fibers, which makes me very happy to work with this type of textile support in many aspects … First, sustainable development that gives work to many people in lots of developing countries. On the other hand it is also biodegradable and ecologic so we care for the environment and it is also important to use natural materials because  our skin does not suffer the degradation to which is exposed with polyester and acrylic ….

 This site shows each fiber, as explained, indicates from where they are and also the different uses that can be given to each …

This is another site that always makes me thrill with his notes and his movement. Craft Australia is the organization, which works much uniting people: artisans, artists, indigenous and crafters. They have made a meeting “Selling Yarns, innovation for sustainability” I recommend you to watch this video because it’s worth and full of hope for anyone.
And finally for those  who are fan of felt, this site is an unmissable…
Fashioning Felt has an impressive range of designs, so that we realize that reinventing our lives with natural materials is possible!

  • Geometry
    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
