There is no place like home...

Alexandra was the wordfinder this week and it is HOME.
I was planning to just do simple home sweet home drawing.. but I ended with other “typical” Home sentence: "There is no place like home". I guess my drawing is missing some little red shoes, right?
Anyhow… As an immigrant I have a little trouble trying to define which is really “home”. In the end I think home is where your heart is ;)
The other participants this week are Cecilia, Aimee, Jenna, Fruenswerk, Andrea, Nathalie, Esti, Kristi, Sandra, Aris, Thereza and Lea.

This was the first thing I thought as soon I saw Aimee’s post :)

I guess if I live, act and breath as the person I want to be, someday no really far I’m going to be that person, right?

I'll post more of my digital papers a little bit later... 2 post in one day... A really weird thing and I swear I'm not faking it!

Finding Balance

So far, this week have been little better regarding my organization skills.
I finally added to my shop one of my “Paper Packs-Digital Files”, and THAT is a BIG step ;)

Digital Files in my Shop

Also, I made a new quote-print. One of the things I'm missing in my life is balance. I get absolutely stress out with my work and I forget everything, including breathing. I suffer of “frozen mind” every time the stress strike. I decide to use this quote as a mantra this week.

Print in my Shop

See you tomorrow with more of my Digital Files :)

You can do it ~download your desktop wallpaper~

Hope you had a great Mother’s Day and an super duper weekend! Mine was pretty productive or at least that is what I want to think :P I sent both days watching Golf (The Players Cup) (Yes, because I’m that crazy!) and working in my 10 x 10 canvases for the traveling set.




I’m really happy with this project but at the same time I just want to finish the all (hopefully I will have 10) to start/continue with other projects I have in my table.

Talking about other projects… I have been working in and out in some digital kits to sell in my Etsy shop. I start those kits because I want to have my patterns design printed on papers but I don’t know who I have to contact to design papers… However, I have tons of files I have just to put together in kits and go online, but for some reason I haven’t find the final kick to do that. I told my Mom yesterday I’m going to do my best this week to organize my priorities and finish at least 3 projects this week ;) And hopefully my digital kits are going to be one of those projects.
In order to start this week with a good foot, I design this desktop wallpaper to use in my computer. And to start the excitement for my Digital Kits Files project, I want to give you this file, because you have to remember that You can do it! :)

Thanks for your words regarding my “Work in Progress”. I’m working in a series of 10 x 10 canvases. So far the name of the series is “traveling” but I hope to find a more interesting name. I’ll be showing you the pieces during the next 9 days. Here my lovely Italy and Japan.
After a comment I got in my last post, I think will be fun to create a littl tutorial about "creating mixed media artwork".. what you think?

As usual, I’m trying to balance the crazy amount of stuff I have on my plate. I have to accomplish really important things and in order to do that I have to push myself. Some days I go to sleep with a knot in my stomach thinking in how I’m going to do this by myself, why I’m pushing myself to hard, doubting if I really can accomplish my dreams and goals, and a huge etc of doubts. Last night was one of those nights and like always I woke up today thinking: “Come ooooon Valentina, you can do it! And soon after that I got a good email.. a simple note telling me I have to trust in myself!
So… I had to create this print :)Trust Yourself
