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!

What to wear IV (Wednesdays I’m blue)

Today is one of this days that everything I see is blue… I’m blue, is snowing… sun is something I haven’t see for let’s say more than three hours in total in the last week and it is hard to deal with… but I’m trying to transform this energy in something more productive and shine, I have looked for some goodies to show you and to match to my new creation ‘Mariona in blue’ the XL bag I have had yet in violet/prune and now in my new fetich color…

Hope you like all this stuff and enjoy your shopping on Etsy or wherever artisans are exposing their souls…

Which do you think is going to be the most wereable color next spring/summer? come and comment! thanks

A step before spring

Good and gray morning…

To put a bit of light to this greyish day I’ll show you the palette suggested by Pantone for next Spring-Summer season..

You can download the .pdf file on their site http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/Pantone.aspx?pg=20694&ca=4

Here a resume of the colors…

1. Amparo Blue ( a bit brighter than navy blue)

2. Turquoise (very summer and lovely for the beach)

3. Violet (in a pale version, super chic)

4. Aurora ( a yellow slightly green)

5.Fusion Coral (i think this is goign to be my favorite)

6. Tomato Purée (they suggest to combine it with turquoise to get a retro look and I agree and love the combination!)

7.Pink Champagne (i’ve been using it in my collections and it’s very well accepted)

8. Tuscany ( combined with violet…super cool)

9. Dried herb (one of the neutrals I’ve been also using so far)

10. Eucalyptus (a gray with a touch of green, the other neutral to be worn when we have got enough sun to be proud of our tanned skin:))

So, what do you think about it? Comment and tell me which one do you prefer!!

************************************************************************************************

And just to get a fresh air on this winter… I have made this clutch bag in wild silk (very rusty indeed) mixed with acrylic in the same palette and with little touches of primary colors (that came in the yarn) and until this moment I didn’t have any idea of where to put it…but I think in this bag is perfect and looks great!

Bilan 2009 and my first SWAP!

Yes! I have made my first SWAP…. with the really nice Lidia of parisbyknit that I have met thanks to ALM. She wanted my Margarita clutch and I absolutely fell in love with their mittens!

The experience was fantastic not only because we have loved the interchange but because is great to meet someone who doesn’t get bored speaking about wool, for example.

Enjoy their mittens and visit her lovely shop!

Et oui, j’ai fait mon premier SWAP… avec une très sympa vendeuse de ALM… Lidia de parisbyknit. Elle voulait ma pochette Margarita et moi, je voulais absolument ses mitaines!

L’expérience fut incroyable, pas seulement parce que on a bien aimé le troc mais aussi parce que faire la connaissance de cette bonne femme m’a rendu heureuse! c’est génial quand on peut parler des laines sans s’ennuyer!

Enfin, voici les belles mitaines de parisbyknit et visitez son magasin virtuel!!

And 2009 is finishing and a new balance is made.

For me was the year were the dreams came true…

When I was a child and somebody asked me what I wanted to be on life I always gave them different kind of answers, that’s why lot of people who knows me says I’m unstable. yeah. And what about of this people who want to make loads of things and not only one? can we? yes, we can (sic).

So, I wanted to be an artists, then a journalist, then I studied international business and finally I made the trip of my life and I decided I would be an artisan (this time for life).

In 2009 I didn’t “work” so, I became all of this in once. An artisan thanks to the threads and needles, a journalist thanks to my blogs, a trader thanks to the virtual markets and globally an artist (even if I don’t feel it at all) 😉

For sure in 2010 I’ll be back to work “formally” but I never ever in my life will abandon this precious treasure I have conquered. Amen.

Have a wonderful 2010!

    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 […]
