I really like having fresh herbs at home. They’re what makes food extra yummy and i do buy them from the market but I prefer growing them when i can because that way i don’t run out. Last year I didn’t grow any, actually, since I’ve had my doggy, I haven’t dedicated time to my plants and I went from being such a plant lady to having two good plants and that was more than i could handle with this doggy eating everyone of them even the cacti family I have.
And I missed my plants so so much. Once I was ready to grow new ones and buy ones with the possibility that they would be eaten by mentioned doggy, i was ok with it and, of course, i would do what i could to keep them happy and safe. I did start with a big planter filled with succulents and cacti. Once that was established and growing so happily. I made up my mind of growing herbs and tomatoes.
When I started planting the seed, i found that i didn’t have enough small planters for sprouting. My friend Carla shared with me a link for making your own with newspaper and that looked like a good idea. Yeah, i didn’t do it. Not one. Ha ha ha. And one day when I just had top plant them because I felt I was running out of spring and soon would have summer, I thought of a great idea (yes, amazing!) of using these coffee packages I’ve kept for so long because i keep pretty things like these just in case i don’t know what. Well, long story (not so) short, my babies are growing so well in them! Yey for reusing.

sprouting in empty coffee packages.

These two are parsley and cilantro. They’re holding up pretty well.
I’ll share more when they’re bigger.

How about that, huh? Pretty cool. Yep. :)

in the studio today.

This is what i see just above when i’m sitting in my sewing table. Photos and a few lovely hangings.

Esto es lo que veo si volteo justo arriba de mis máquinas de coser cuando estoy sentada trabajando. Fotos y algunas cosas lindas colgadas.

skillet lasagna

I made this delicious skillet lasagna today. Best thing ever: no oven needed and only one dish gets dirty in the process. And, well, it’s really yummy. Recipe here.

Hoy hice esta deliciosa lasaña en casuela. Lo mejor de todo es que solo ensucias una casuela grande y no es necesario un horno para cocinarla. Eso y que está super buena. Aquí encontré la receta.

happy friday.

studio work.

I totally wanted to post a few things this week, including a few photos of my working space and what i’ve been working on these days but I forgot. I really did not grab the camera at all today nor yesterday. I’ve been meaning to start a photo a day again but i just don’t. Well, i’ll make the time, i will… i want to do this for myself. Anyways, this is me trying to get back to writing here. It’s a start.
What plans do you have for the weekend? yes you the only two people that read my blog.
I’m going to the LA Art Book Fair! yay! I’m heading there tomorrow. I’ll take my camera and share some photos and whatever it is I come back with {books of course}.
Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Realmente quería escribir un par de publicaciones esta semana aquí, incluyendo una con fotos de mi espacio de trabajo y de lo que he estado haciendo/trabajando pero no sucedió como pudieron haberse dado cuenta. No agarré la cámara para nada ayer ni antier. Si tengo tantas ganad de escribir más aquí y de retomar la foto al día pero no lo he hecho. Bueno, tengo que hacerme el tiempo, si quiero hacerlo y dedicarle, es una de las cosas que quiero hacer, por mi misma. En fin, aquí ando tratando de regresar a escribir.

¿Qué plan tienen para el fin de semana? Si, ustedes únicas dos personas que aun leen mi blog…
Yo iré a la Feria del libro de Arte de Los Ángeles! Yey! Voy mañana. ME voy a llevar la cámara y toda la cosa para tomar fotos y les comparto algunas y si regreso con algo, posiblemente libros, también.
¡Qué tengan un buen fin de semana!

it’s hard to come back.

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

So, i haven’t posted in a while. I haven’t shared anything in weeks.

It’s hard to come back.

I don’t know how to start again. What do I want to share, really?

I’ve been reading. I’ve been sewing some and working on a few pieces for a couple of exhibitions but I haven’t taken any photos. Maybe that’s why I don’t share, because I don’t have the photos to illustrate what I’m doing lately? Maybe?

Here’s a photos of some pretty flowers.
I can start by sharing that. And I think i didn’t share the denim backpacks I made in December. I can share those up next.

How’s the new year going?
A bit slow for me.

Happy Tuesday.
