X - Xerography

To be completely honest, I have been looking at words starting with X, because I don't know many.
At first the only word that came to my mind was x-ray. But as I am quite tired of hospitals and all that I didn't want to talk about it.

As I was looking I found the word Xerography, which sounded familiar, so I looked it up.
What I found was fascinating, because I have just learn a very important artistic related technique.
Basically Xerography is a dry photocopying invented by Chester Carlson in 1938 that uses no liquid chemicals.
This resulted in the first commercial automatic copier.
Xerography is used in most photocopying machines and in laser and LED printers.

But what it took my attention is the fact that xerography was adapted to eliminate the hand inking stage in the animation process by printing the animator's drawings directly to the cells.
The first animated film to use this process was One hundred and on dalmatians (1961).
(I took all this information from Wikipedia)

This technique saved hours and hours of work to all illustrators, so I'm guessing that they know well this word.


--------------------------------------------------------------



Honestamente, he tenido que busar palabra que empezasen con X, porque no se muchas.
Al principio la unica palabra que se venia en mente era rayos x. Pero como ya estoy bastante cansada de hospitales y demas no me apetecia hablar de ello.

Buscando palabras encontre la palabra Xerografia, que me resultaba familiar, asi que la busque. 
Lo que encontre era fascinante, porque acabab de aprender una tecnica artistica muy importante. 
Basicamente la xerografia es una fotocopia inventada por Chester Carlsonen 1938 que no utiliza ningun quimico liquido.
De esto salio la primera fotocopiadora automatica.
Xerografia es utilizada en la mayoria de las maquinas fotocopiadoras, en las laser y las LED.

Pero lo que llamo mi atencion es el hecho de que la serografia fue adaptada para eliminar el proceso de copiado a mano en animacion copiando los dibujos directamente en las celulas.

La primera pelicula animada en la que utilizaron esta tecnica fue en "Los ciento y un dalmatas" (1961).
(Informacion tomada de Wikipedia).

Esta tecnica ahorro horas y horas de trabajo a los ilustradores, asi que imagino que ellos bien que conocian esta palabra.

V - Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh has always been one of my favorite artists.
I love the way he stands out with his painting and how little he cared of what people thought about it.
You would think he was a brave man, but in fact he was quite shy and sensitive, very closed to his brother and all that took him to be a very temperamental and a difficult man, in fact he ended up mentally unstable.

You could see throughout his art what was going on in his mind on every moment of his life. He was a troubled man and he ended up his life in a tragic mode, he committed suicide. His life was a sad life, but his work was full of color, of dreams to come true, of shining stars.

I have always be inspired by his work. Everytime I saw one of his paintings of Paris, I wished with all my heart to travel to Paris. Everytime I saw a painting of his flowers I wished to be walking on a field full of them. Everytime I saw a picture of himself, I wished I could have been there to help him out.
Vincent Van Gogh had the ability of making me feel something. I have never been unemotional when seeing any of his paintings, and I think that is exactly that what makes me like him so much.
There are few paintings that touch me every time I see them.

 "The cafe terrace by night"


 "Starry night over Rhone"


"Wheat field with crows"


And many more. I just see so much meaning behind the paintings, that I could be writing pages and pages. So I will stop here by now. 

----------------------------------------------------------------



Vincent Van Goghha sido siempre uno de mis artistas favoritos.
Me encanta la manera en la que siempre ha sobresalido con su pintura y lo poco que le importaba lo que otros hacian.
Pensarias que era un un hombre valiente, pero en realidad era bastante timido y sensible y siempre se resguardaba en su hermano, y todo eso lo llevo a ser un hombre temperamental y antisociable, de hecho termino mentalmente inestable.

Se puede ver atrves de sus pinturas sus preocupaciones en cada momento de su vida. El era un hombre con problemas y de echo su vida termino de una manera tragica, se suicido. Su vida fue una vida triste, pero su obra estaba llena de color, de suenhos, de estrellas brillantes. 

A mi siempre me ha inspirsdo su obra.Cada vez que veia un cuadro de Paris, deseaba viajar a Paris con todas mis fuerzas. Cada vez que veia una de sus pinturas de flores, deseaba poder pasear por los campos llyudarle. enos de ellas. Cada vez que veia uno de sus autoretratos, deseaba poder ir y hablar con el para a
Vincent Van Gogh tiene la habilidad de no sentirme nunca impasible ante una de sus obras, y creo que eso es exactamente lo que hace que me guste tanto. Y hay varias pinturas que llaman la aten cion en especial..

U - Unbelievable

This is unbelievable!!
No, I haven't sold anything in Etsy yet, but Three of my darling creations have been featured in three Treasury Lists!!
This may not sound important to you, but it is VERY important to me. To be feature on Treasury Lists gives you the opportunity to show your items to more people, and it also means that someone liked your piece.
I am really excited!!

And here they are!!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Esto es increible!!
No, aun no he vendido nada en Etsy, pero Tres de mis queridas creaciones han salido en tres Listas del Tesoro!!
Puede que esto no tenga ningun interes para ti, pero es MUY importante para mi. El salir en Listas del Tesoro te da la oportunidad de promocionar tus piezas, y tambien significa que a alguien le ha gustado tu creacion. 
Estoy muy emocionada!!

Y aqui estan!!

R - Rings

Q - Questions

In the last few months my life has been anything but easy.

For years, I've been suffering from a bone condition in my hip, but it had worsened in the las few months to the point that I could'nt have a normal life. In fact I had so much pain that I needed surgery, so two months ago I had a hip replacement on my left leg, but unfortunately there were some complications and during surgery my sciatic nerve was damaged, and now I have lost feeling on my foot and part of my leg, on top of the pain that having the sciatic nerve damaged means.

I had to spend almost a month in hospital, an now I have to spend the whole morning in hospital to receive the diferent sessions of rehab, and when I get home I am so sore and tired that I spend the rest of the day on bed.
As most of you know already I have two little ones, so all of this is being specialy hard on them, but also on me. Suddenly I am no longer taking care of them, or playing with them, or putting them to be while I sing to them.

As humans beings that we are, when we go through hard times we start making questions, and probably the question we ask  the most is why, why me?
But something that I am learning is to ask a different question. Rather that ask "why me?" I am starting to ask "what for?".
Just by changing my questions, my attitude has changed completely.

It is so important to ask the right question.
You take the decision, whatever situation you are going through, or takes you down, or makes you stronger; and I have decided that with God's help that I will grow stronger.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

En los ultimos meses mi vida ha sido de todo menos facil.

Durante anhos, he tenido un problema en mis caderas, y en los ultimos meses ha empeorado hasta el punto en el que ya no podia llevar una vida medio normal. De hecho tenia tanto dolor que necesitaba una operacion, asi que hace dos meses me operaron y me pusieron una protesis de cadera completa en mi cadera izquierda, pero por desgracia la cosa se complico y durante la operacion mi nervio ciatico quedo danhado. Ahora he perdido todo sentimiento en mi pie y parte de la pierna, aparte del dolor propio que produce tener el nervio danhado.

He tenido que pasar casi un mes ingresada en el hospital, y ahora me paso las mananas en rehabilitacion, y cuando llego a casa estoy tan dolorida y cansada que me paso el resto del dia en la cama.
La mayoria de vosotros ya sabeis que tengo de nenas pequenhas, asi que todo esto esta siendo bastante duro para ellas, pero tambien para mi. De repente ya no soy yo quien las cuida, o quien juega con ellas, ni quien las pone a dormir mientras les canto canciones.

Como seres humanos que somos, cuando atravesamos momentos dificiles de nuestras vidas, empezamos a hacernos preguntas, y probablemente la pregunta que mas nos hacemos es el porque, porque yo?
Pero algo que estoy aprendiendo es a hacer una pregunta diferente. En lugar de preguntar "porque yo?" he comenzado a preguntar "con que proposito?".

Simplemente con cambiar mi pregunta, my actitud es otra completamente.
Es tan importante el hacer las preguntas adecuadas.

Tu tomas la decision, la situacion en la que te encuentras, o te hunde o te hace mas fuerte; y yo he decidido que con la ayuda de Dios yo voy a salir mas fuerte.

O - Origins

My word for today with letter O is Origin.
The meaning of origin is where something started, right? Well, for me then my Origin is where all started for me, my land, my people.
I am from the south of Spain, where the sun always shines.(yeah right).
I am from Andalusia (Andalucia), which is a region with many different types of landscapes. We have desserts, snowy mountains, deep forests, big citys, farm land, and a huge coastline, among other things.
Andalucia has been called many times "the gates of Europe", so historically we've had so many different cultures stopping by. (And we still do, but they come by boat with nothing more than what they are wearing).
Probably, out of all those different cultures that at some point left some influence in our land, the one that left the biggest input was the Islamic Empire. Andalusian culture was influenced by over halve a millennium of rule by many Muslim caliphates and emirates. Al-Andalus was the name of our beautiful region for centuries.
Andalusia has eight different provinces, being Seville the capital. And guess where I am from? That's right, I am from Seville.
Just so you know, when people think of Spain, they tend to think of good weather, flamenco, long beaches and tapas, well, that's not Spain, that's Andalusia. Spain is so much more than that, and once you get out of Andalucia is like you are stepping out in a different country, and is all worth visiting. Spain is beautiful and so rich.
Why do I miss it so much?, because Andalucia is orange trees smell, is sand on my shoes from the beach and chatting with friends in a terrace without looking what time is it. Andalucia is my people, and where my family, my roots are. And I am proud of our food, our accent, our land. (snif, snif).
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce you where I am from, my Origins.
I leave you with this touristic promotional video that I've found on you Tube (where else).
(It's got music).



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Mi palabra para hoy con la letra O es Origen.
Origen significa el lugar donde algo comenzo, no? Bueno pues para mi mi origen es donde todo comenzo para mi, mi tierra, mi gente.
Yo soy del sur de Espanha, donde el sol siempre brilla (si, claro).
Soy de Andalucia, una region con muchos tipos de parajes. Tenemos desiertos, montanhas nevadas, grandes bosques, ciudades grandes, comarcas de cultivo y una costa enorme estre otras cosas.
A Andalucia se le ha llamado la puerta de Europa, asi que historicamente hemos tenido muchas culturas que han pasado por nuetra region. (Y siguen viniendo, pero vienen en patera y con lo puesto). 
Posiblemente, de todas las culturas que han dejado su huella en nuestra tierra, la que mas nos ha influenciado ha sido el Imperio Islamico. La cultura andaluza ha sido influenciada durante mas de medio milenio bajo el mandato de los muchos Califatos Musulmanes y Emiratos. Al-Andalus fue el nombre de nuestra bellisima region durante siglos.
Andalucia tiene ocho provincias, siendo la capital Sevilla, y adivinas de donde soy? Pues eso, que soy sevillana.
Para vuestra informacion, cuando la gente piensa en Espanha, tienden en pensar en el buen clima, el flamenco, largas playas y las tapas; pues bien, eso no es Espanha, eso es Andalucia. Espanha es mucho mas que eso, y una vez que sales de Andalucia es como si fueses a otro pais, y que vale la pena visitar. Espanha es bellisima y esta llena de riquezas. 
El porque echo de menos tanto mi tierra? Porque Andalucia huele a azahar, es arena en mis zapatos de la playa, es estar con unos amigos en una terraza sin mirar que hora es. Andalucia es mi gente, y de donde mi familia y mis raices estan. Estoy orgullosa de nuestra comida, nuestro acento, nuestra tierra. (snif, snif).
Bueno, yo solo queria que conocieseis un poco de donde soy, mis origenes.
Os dejo un video promocional de andalucia que he encontrado en You Tube (Donde sino?)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Hay cuentas  grandes y pequenhas, fornituras, colgantes y mas cosas.
No es genial?
Para participar necesitais visitar su blog y seguir sus normas. 
Sorteo abierto hasta el 23 de Abril.



 There are little beads, and big beads, and findings, ceramic charms, and cute recycled glass fish! Lucky you! 
                                               

N - New followers

After the events of the last months; we had the OWOH event, then the Bead Blog Soup Party (Which I never got to finish), my surgery and now the A to Z event, I haven't had the time to proper welcome all my new followers.
    So:
                                                     WELCOME!!!


I like to send an email to welcome them personally to my blog, but honestly, I lost track.
So I thought that this would be a great opportunity to thank everyone for visiting and specially to those who are staying.
I know that I haven't been posting much about jewelery lately, but my production has gone down big time.
I spend the whole morning in hospital having my physio rehab, and in the afternoons I try to rest as much as I can, have a little time with my babies and if I am  lucky enough I manage to make a pair of earrings and write my blog post for the day.

There is something that has going round and round my head, and I think that I am going to do.
I thought that it would be great if every Monday (or Tuesday, or Friday, I need to think the best day of the week) I could introduce you to each one of my followers.
I already know some of you, because you leave comments and we kind of have conversations, but I know very little about some others.
There is another reason, and it is that it could be great because the most of you are fantastic artists and it is only fair from me to promote your art and your blogs. I might even make a short interview, will see.

For the time being I have made a treasure list to show you some of the so beautiful things they do and that are for sale in Etsy.




---------------------------------------------------------------

Con todo lo que ha ocurrido en losultimos meses; hubo el eevento OWOH, luego fue el Bead Blog Soup Party ( que nunca llegue a terminar), mi operacion y ahora el evento de la A a la Z, no he tenido tiempo de darles la bienvenida debidamente a mis seguidores.
Asi que:


                                               BIENVENIDOS

A mi me gusta enviar un correo para darles la bienvenida personalmente a mi blog, pero la verdad es que ya perdi la cuenta.
He pensado que esta seria una gran oportunidad para agradecer a todos los que me visitan y especialmente a los que se quedan.
Se que no he estado escribiendo mucho de joyeria ultimamente, pero es que apenas estoy haciendo cosas nuevas.
Me paso la manana en el hospital para la rehabilitacion en fisioterapia, y por las tardes intento descansar todo lo que puedo, tener un ratito con mis nenas y si hay suerte hay veces que hago algunos pendientes y escribo en el blog.

Hay algo e lo que le he estado dando vueltas a la cabeza, y creo que lo voy a hacer.
He pensado que estaria bien si cada Lunes (o Martes o cualquier otro dia) podria presentaros a cada uno de mis seguidores.
A algunos ya os conozco porque nos vamos dejando comentarios, pero hay otros a los que no conozco de nada.
Tambien hay otro motivo, y es que podria estar bien porque la mayoria de vosotros sois unos artistas fabulosos y ya que tomais el tiempo de leer mi blog creo que lo justo seria promocionar los vuestros. Puede que hasta os haga alguna entrevista, ya veremos.

De momento he preparado un mosaico para ensenaros algunas de las cosas tan preciosas que haceis y que estan en venta en Etsy.

M - Mood

For yesterdays post I couldn't decide what to write.
Don't you get one of those days that even if you write something it means nothing to you, because it is not coming from your heart?. It might be coming from your brain, but for me it doesn't work.
 I had many words with  M to write, like Music, Metal, Metal clay, Motherhood and many more, but it just didn't flow, but finally my M post will be about Mood.

Yes, how do you feel today? In what Mood are you today?

Yesterday I was rather down. I felt sad for my situation, because I miss my girls.
The funny thing is that the reason I was in such Mood was that I had a great time with them yesterday.
I just sat with them in the sofa for about 20 minutes, and we were hugging and kissing each other, and laughing and just enjoying being together, but the I had to go to bed, because my pain started to raise and I just couldn't be there anymore.
I was happy for the fact that we could share such a beautiful moment after such a long time, but then I became sad because I had to leave them and I don't know when something like this would happen again.
So you see, I was in a rather sad Mood yesterday, but today is a new day and I am in a better mood. Still with pain and the same problems, but I am looking at them in a different way, and that makes the difference.


              
                                               (Mugs from Thabto)


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Para el post de ayer no me decidia que escribir.
No hay dias en los que si te fuerzas a escribir lo que escribes no significa nada, porque no viene de tu corazon? Puede que venga de tu mente, pero para mi no funciona.
Tenia muchas palabra con M para esscribir, como Musica, Metal, Pasta de plata Metal Clay), Maternidad y otras cuantas mas, pero no me salia, asi que mi post sera acerca del estado de animo (Mood).


Asi que, que tal te encuentras hoy? En que estado de animo estas?

Ayer estaba un poco baja de animo. Me senti triste por mi situacion, porque echo de menos a mis nenas. El caso es que la razon de que me pusiese asi es que ayer pase un tiempo genial con ellas.

Simplemente me sente en el sofa con ellas unos 20 minutos, y estuvimos abrazandonos y dandonos besitos y queriendonos muchos y riendonos y simplemente disfrutando de estar juntas, pero entonces me tuve que ir a la cama porque el dolor ya se volvioinsoportable y ya n podia estar ahi mas tiempo. 

Estaba contenta por el hecho de haber pasado un tiempo tan bonito con ellas despues de tanto tiempo, pero entonces me deprimi porque me tuve que ir y no se cuando volveremos a estar asi otra vez. 

Asi que ya veis, ayer estaba en un estado de animo bastante trista, pero hoy es un nuevo dia y estoy mejor. Asi que estoy con los mismos dolores y los mismod problemas, pero mirandolos de una manera diferente y eso hace la diferencia.

K -Kiwis

OK. The whole of my life, when someone said the word kiwi, I and most of my country (Spain) would think that you were talking about that delicious but hairy fruit. Right? In fact, as a child to see a kiwi (fruit) it was something rare, but then many years ago, it became a very common fruit to see on the shelfs of the grocery stores.

According to the free dictionary the kiwi fruit is the oval fruit of the kiwi plant, Actinidia chinesis, a climb plant native to Asia but grown extensively in New Zealand; it has a brown fuzzy skin and pale green flesh. Also called Chinese gooseberry.


I love eating kiwis, specially since I learnt the right way of eating them. We used to peel it off completely and then eat it as if it was an apple. A bit messy, you will think, and you will be right. But then, someone taught me  the right way to eat it, and then my love for the fruit increase a whole lot more. Just in case you don't know how to eat it, let me explain it to you: You take a knife and then divide the fruit in two as in the picture below, then, take a teaspoon and eat it as if you were eating a yogurt. Amazingly simple.



Then, suddenly, while studying at school, we learnt that Down Under, there is a very funny looking bird also called Kiwi.
I also found a definition, but this time from Thesaurus. A kiwi is a nocturnal bird of New Zealand having a long neck and stout legs; only surviving representative of the order Apterygiformes.
So there you are. I personally think that one is quite cute.



But then, the most fascinating thing happened when I moved to London, I met so many kiwis, and they were people! Yes, my friend, something that for the most of you was something known and natural, for me came as a shock, and I am not kidding.

Sometimes people started saying, yeah mate, she is a pretty kiwi, or yes, my friend is sharing a flat with a kiwi. What? Do you mean the fruit or the animal? I would think, but obviously I would keep my mouth shut just in case. And thanks goodness I did, because later I learnt that kiwis is a name given to those that are from New Zealand.

So there you are. Ignorance can be very funny at times, but normally it brings nothing good. My advise; learn as much as you can, so you don't have to ask and then look like a fool.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

OK. Durante toda mi vida, cuando alguien decia la palabra kiwi, yo y la mayoria de mi pais (Espana) pensababamos que hablaban de una deliciosa fruta un tanto peluda. Verdad? De echo, cuando era ninha era raro ver un kiwi, pero desde hace bastantes anhos se ha vuelto bastante noemal encontrarlos en una fruteria

Segun un diccionario (Free Dictionary) el kiwi es una fruta oval de la planta kiwi, Actinidia Chinesis, una planta trepadora nativa de Asia pero cultivada extensivamente en Nueva Zelanda; tiene una piel vellosa y marron con una crne verde clara. 

Me encanta comer kiwis, especialmente desde que aprendi a comerlos correctamente. Soliamos pelarlos completamente t comerlos como si fuese una manzana. Seguro que piensas que es un poco pringoso, y estas en lo cierto.Pero entonces, alguien me ensenho como comerlos de la manera adecuada, y fue entonces que mi amor por esta fruta incremento de repente. Por si acaso aun no sabes como se come un kiwi, dejame explicar el procedimento: Con un cuchillo partes la fruta en dos, como en la fotografia, y entonces, con una cucharilla te lo comes asi como si fuese un yogurt. Simplemente increible.

Entonces, un dia estudiando en el colegio, aprendimos que en las antipodas, hay un pajarito muy gracioso que tambien se llama Kiwi.

Tambien he encontrado una definicion, pero esta vez en Thesaurus. El kiwi es un ave nocturna de Nueva Zelanda que tiene un largo pico y fuertes patas; es el unico superviviente de los Apterygiformes.
Asi que ya lo sabeis. Personalmente me parece monisimo.


Pero entonces, lo mas interesante ocurrio ya una vez que vivia en Londres, y es que conoci a muchos kiwis, y eran personas! Pues si, algo que para el resto de vosotros era algo comunmente conocido, era un concepto completamente nuevo para mi, y no bromeo.
De repente alguien comenzaba a decir, si tio, esa kiwi es guapisima; otro entonces decia, my amigo comparte piso con un kiwi. Que? Te refieres a la fruta o al animal? Pensaba en mi mente, pero obviamente me callaba por si acaso. Y menos mal que no abria la boca para preguntar, porque mas tarde aprendi que alos neozelandeses se les llama Kiwis.

Asi que ahi tienes. Hay veces en la que la ignorancia puede tener su lado divertido, pero normalmente no trae nada bueno. Mi consejo: aprende todo lo que puedas, y asi no tendras que preguntar y parecer un completo idiota.

H - HOLIDAY

Oh Boy!! Don't ask me why, but I thought today was Sunday, so I thought I didn't have to post today!!
Anyway, as for today, the letter H stands for Holiday!!

I love going on holidays. And to tell you the truth, one of the parts that I enjoy the most is the preparation of it, and then, when we get back is the scrapbooking of the photographs. Call me crazy, but I really do enjoy the whole process. Maybe, what I don't really enjoy is the laundry afterwards, but even the unpacking I find it interesting, because then I remember things, like that I was wearing that t-shirt when we visited the Cango Caves, or Daniel teared off those trousers trying to get off the Jeep on the first day's safari, and things like that.

While living in London we had the great opportunity of traveling to many different countries. The ones I enjoyed the most must be Southafrica, Sri Lanka, Croatia and Sweden. I did enjoy visiting Jordan, but we didn't go to Petra, so what's the point?. As we live in Spain we have been many times in Portugal and France, but I like France to bits (It might be the French blood in my veins). Anyways, that we do love holidaying, so that's my word for today: HOLIDAY.

As it is quite late, I will just show you some holiday's pictures.
Note: I didn't go on my own to these places, but if I post a picture of my husband on it I would have to start looking for a new flat, new husband, and new all.
Note #2: As most of our pictures holidays are at my husband computer, I can show you only a few.

Ay madre!! No me preguntes porque, pero pense que hoy era Domingo, asi que pense que no tocaba escribir!!
De todas formas, hoy la palabra que empieza por H es Holiday (Vacaciones).

Me encanta ir de vacaciones. Y para decirte la verdad, una de mis partes favoritas de las vacaciones es la preparacion, y luego, cuando ya estas de vuelta, es organizar y pegar las fotos en albumes. Llamadme loca, pero es que me encanta todo el proceso. Puede que lo que me guste menos es lo de poner lavadoras a la vuelta, pero incluso el deshacer maletas lo encuentro interesante, porque te hace recordar cosas, como que cuando fuimos a las cuevas Cango llevaba puesta tal camiseta, o que Daniel se hizo un siete en el pantalon al bajar del Jeep en el primer dia del safari, y cosas asi.


Cuando viviamos en Londres teniamos la gran oporunidad de viajar a diferentes paises. Los que mas he disfrutado han sido Sudafrica, Sri Lanka, Croacia y Suecia. Disfrute en Jordania pero no vimos Petra, asi que de que nos valio? Al vivir en Espana tambien hemos etado muchas veces en Portugal y Francia, pero prefiero Francia (Sera la sangre francesa que corre por mis venas). El caso es que nos encanta ir de vacaciones, conocer nuevos lugares, nuevas culturas, gente nueva. 

While living in London we had the great opportunity of traveling to many different countries. The ones I enjoyed the most must be Southafrica, Sri Lanka, Croatia and Sweden. I did enjoy visiting Jordan, but we didn't go to Petra, so what's the point?. As we live in Spain we have been many times in Portugal and France, but I like France to bits (It might be the French blood in my veins). Anyways, that we do love holidaying, know new places, new cultures meet new people. 

Como es un poco tarde, os dejo con algunas fotos.
Nota: No fui sola de vacaciones, pero si pongo fotos de mi marido en el blog ya me puedo ir buscando piso nuevo, marido nuevo y todo nuevo.
Nota #2: La mayoria de las fotos de las vacaciones estan en el ordenador de mi marido, asi que aqui os dejo solo un par.

G - Gratitude

letraG


Gratitude is the feeling that we experiment  when we receive something, and normally we want to give something else back somehow.

There are situations when just saying the word thanks feels enough to show your gratitude, but there are some others when that is not enough. 
Sometimes the feeling of gratitude is so big that there are not enough words or deeds that can show how grateful you are. 

I have just been in that situation, where there is no way I can show how grateful I am because I have received so much and I can't even start to show my gratitude.

On the 16th of February I went into surgery to have a hip replacement. Apparently a simple procedure. Well, as it happens during the intervention there were some complications and my sciatic nerve was badly damaged. 
As you can imagine it was more than painful and I had to spend almost a month in hospital. (If you want to know more details just read my posts on that).
I am 34 years old, and I have two little ones, the oldest is just 3 years old and the youngest 14 months. 
So Suddenly I found myself needing to have someone with me at the hospital 24 hours a day and someone to take care of my daughters.
My husband commutes to another city to work and although he took some time off, he couldn't stay in two places at the same time, and then after almost two weeks off work he had to go back. 
My family live five hours drive from us and my parents aren't in good health anyway. My husband only has one sister living in this country, the rest live in the UK.  And they did as much as they could. 
Are you getting the picture? We needed people to help us. 
Well, we go to a church here in town, and the women in church stayed with me and my babies for the whole time while in hospital, and even now that I am home they still come to help. 
For me it was overwhelming, but on top of that, so many people were praying for us and phoning, and sending messages by email, but on top of that (again), the response from my blogger friends was outstanding. 

Throughout this experience I have found a treasure, and I will keep it in my heart for ever. I have found that gratitude is very closed to love, I would even say that they go by the hand. 

I am so thankful, that I don't find words. Gratitude is what is in my heart for everyone who in some way or another is helping me to overcome one of the worst times in my life. Thanks to all of you. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gratitud es el sentimiento que experimentamos cuando recibimos algo y que normalmente quieres devolver.

Hay situaciones en las que con solo decir gracias cumples, pero hay otras ocasiones en las que gracias no basta.    
En algunas ocasiones el sentiimiento de gratitud es tan grande que no hay bastante palabras o hechos  que puedan demostrar cuan agradecido se esta.

Yo acabo de estar en esa situacion, en la que no hay manera humana en la que yo pueda demostrar mi agradecimiento, porque es tanto lo que he recibido que necesitaria dos vidas para agradecer y ni aun asi me alcanzaba. 

El 16 de Febrero me operaron de una protesis de cadera. Aparentemente algo sencillo. Pues bien, durante la intervencion hubo complicaciones y se danho de forma severa mi nervio ciatico. 
Como os podeis imaginar era mas que doloroso y tuve que pasar casi un mes en el hospital. (Si quieres saber mas detalles lee las entradas sobre el tema).
Tengo 34 anhos, y tengo dos nenas, la mayor tiene 3 anhos y la peque 14 meses.
Asi que de repente nos encontramos necesitando que cuidasen de mi en el hospital las 24 horas del dia y tambien alguien que se encargase de mis hijas.
Mi marido viaja a otra ciudad a trabajar y aunque se tomo un tiempo libre, el no podia estar en dos lugares al mismo tiempo, y despues de un par de semanas sin trabajar tuvo que volver.
Mi familia vive a 5 horas de viaje y mis padres tampoco estan muy bien de salud. Mi marido solo tiene una hermana viviendo aqui y el resto vive en Inglaterra. Y eso que ellos han hecho todo lo que estaba en sus manos.
Te vas haciendo a la idea del panorama? Necesitabamos ayuda.
Pues bien, nosotros asistimos a una iglesia aqui en Salamanca, y entre las mujeres se encargaron de estar conmigo y mis nenas e incluso ya una vez fuera del hospital.
Para mi fue sobrecogedor, pero es que encima, hay tanta gente orando, llamando y preocupandose por nosotros que es increible, pero es que encima (otra vez), la respuesta de mis blogeros fue impresionante.

A traves de esta experiencis he encontrado un tesoro que lo guardare para siempre. Me he dado cuenta de que la gratitud esta muy cercana al amor, de hecho casi diria que la gratitud y el amor van de la mano.

Estoy tan agradecida que no encuentro palabras. Gratitud es lo que siento en mi corazon a todos aquellos  que de una manera u otra me estan ayudando a superar uno de los peores momentos de mi vida. Gracias a todos.

F- Fun


What a fantastic word for today. Don't you think?

I love having fun.
Having fun with my family.
Having fun with my friends.
Having fun at work.
Having fun everywhere I go.
Even when I go to hospital for my Physio Rehab.

Did you know that laughing increases oxygen intake and replenish ad invigorate cells? It also boots immunity and relieves stress.
15 minutes of laughter equals the benefit of 2 hours sleep and 1 hour of yoga. . 
Laughter releases endorphins giving us the "feel good factor". 

I have never done yoga, but I have laughed a lot many times. So I don't really know in which level of yoga am I at.

My mum's family is very funny, so I have always liked spending time with my aunts and uncles and my granny.
My mum's family is a quite large family and every time we gather I have the best of times, because we laugh from the moment that we start setting the tables until everyone is gone.
Isn't that fantastic? I love it. 
I remember once, that my granny phoned me just because she just heard a joke and it was so funny that  she wanted to share it with me. The joke was indeed funny, but I loved my granny for thinking of me. 


But nowadays when I have more fun is with my own family, specially with my daughters. 
They always come up with something funny. So yes, I love to have fun, don't you?

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Que palabra mas maravillosa la de hoy. No os parece? Diversion.

Me encanta divertirme.
Divertirme con mi familia.
Divertirme con mis amigos.
Divertirme en el trabajo.
Divertirme alla donde vaya.
Incluso en el hospital cuando voy a Fisioterapia.

Sabias que el reir aumenta la entrada de oxigeno y repone y tonifica las celulas? Tambien aumenta las defensas y descarga el estress.
15 minutos de risa equivale a los beneficios de dos horas de suenho y a una hora de yoga.
La risa produce endorfinas dandonos un sentido de bienestar.

Nunca he hecho yoga, pero me he reido muchisimo. Asi que no se por que nivel andare.

La familia de mi madre es muy divertida, asi que siempre me ha gustado pasar tiempo con mis tio y tias y mi abuela.
La familia de mi madre es bastante grande asi que cada que nos juntamos lo paso genial, porque ya empezamos a reir desde el momento que empezamos a poner la mesa hasta que cada uno se va a casa.
Una vez mi abuela me llamo por telefono tan solo porque habia escuchado un chiste y era tan gracioso que me lo queria contar. El chiste era de verdad gracioso, pero me encanto que mi abuela pensara en mi.

Pero ultimamente cuando mejor me lo paso es con mi propia familia, especialmente con mis hijas.
Ellas siempre tienen una salida fraciosa. Asi que si, me encanta divertirme, a ti no?

Etsy - My very own Etsy shop Grand Opening and a Giveaway!!!

Finally I took the step and opened my very own Etsy shop. I am so excited! I am still learning how does all this work so please just bear me while in the process.

I have to admit that I wasn't very sure if my pieces were going to be good enough to sell on this site, but then when I started to sell to shops and other people and people were so pleased I thought that I could give it a try. On top of that, because of my surgery I won't be able to do any fairs this year so I had to do something and Etsy was the obvious thing to do. Besides I have many blogger friends that sell there.

So to celebrate such a fantastic event I will be having a giveaway of this beautiful bracelet. Which is made of sterling silver and mother of pearl in a lovely orange color, a color that is back in fashion for this spring-summer season.

THE DRAW IS NOW CLOSED


There are "few" rules though:
  1. Visit my Etsy shop and leave a comment on this post of your favorite item.
That's it, but it would be very much appreciated if you posted about it on your blog, or if you let others know. 
Just one more thing. Please make sure that you leave a way for me to contact you or I will have to choose another winner. 
I will choose the winner the day of  letter L for lucky. So this giveaway will be open until Spanish midnight of the day of  the letter J for "Just in time".

By the way here is the link to my shop.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finalmente he abierto mi tienda on line on Etsy. Estoy tan contenta! Aun estoy aprendiendo como funciona todo esto, asi que tened paciencia conmigo mientras aprendo.

He de admitir que no estaba segura si mis piezas valdrian para este sitio, pero cuando empece a vender a tiendas y a otras personas y estas personas estaban encantadas pense que podria intentarlo. Ademas, con lo de mi operacion, este anho no podre hacer niguna feria de artesania como tenia previsto, asi que algo tenia que hacer y Etsy era lo evidente. Ademas tengo bastantes amigos blogueros que vendn ahi sus creaciones.

Asi que, para celebrar tan fantastico evento, voy a tener un sorteo de esta preciosisima pulsera. Esta hecha de plata de ley y nacar en un precioso color naranja que esta de moda en esta temporada primavera verano.

Hay "algunas reglas:
  1. Visita mi tienda Etsy y deja un comentario en este post diciendome que pieza es la que mas te gusta. 
Eso es todo lo que teneis que hacer, pero os agradeceria que pasaseis la voz o incluso lo anunciaseis en vuestro blog. Solo otra cosa mas, aseguraos de dejar una manera de contactaros porque sino tendre que buscar a otro ganador. 
Elegire al ganador el dia de la letra L de Lucky (afortunado). El sorteo estara abierto hasta la media noche espanhola del dia de la letra J por Just in time (justo a tiempo).


Por cierto, aqui teneis el link a mi tienda.

D - Designers

                         Dije Letra D

Today I would like to present you some of my favorite designers in blogland.
 There are too many to mention, so I'll just present you those that I either buy from or just love their job and enjoy reading their blog.

Laura Sparling: She makes some of the most beautiful beads I've ever seen. If I could I'd spend all my savings just to buy her beads.
Here is an example of her work.



Chamaleon Designs: Her work is also amazing. Full of flowers and butterflies. Every girls dream. Here is also a sample of her work.

                                 more butterflies

Joy Funnell: I love this lady's work. She works with PMC and enamelling. Honestly, she is fantastic and with an amazing imagination. 

                                            Spirito di Venezia

Amy Nicole:  What a talented woman. I love the way she works metal, specially the sawing process, and also, of course the enameling. She has been working lately on a lot of beautiful earrings. You should check them out.

                           

Silver Nik Nats: I simply love her jewelery. Niky has great ideas and a really good technique.


                     

There are many more, but I just wanted you to have an idea of great people doing great Designs.

Day 3 = C - Creativity

                                Entrada correspondiente a la letra c en el Diccionario de autoridades.

Risking that many of you will go for the same word, here it is: Today's word is Creativity.

There is a fact that some people are born with more disposition than others, to the point where you can get people that the only thing they can do is to follow orders, other people and trends and then you can get genius like Dali, Shakespeare or Mozart to just mention few.

We've gone to the two extremes, but what about the people in between?
How much creativity do we have? Is there a way to increase it? Is there a way where we can go from mediocre to exceptional?

I believe that creativity is like a plant. We all have the seeds and is up to us to take care of it, to feed it.When things go wrong into our lives, creativity can make us stronger and also be a refuge. It is up to us to make it grow.
We can take on courses, study, have a mentor, and practice a lot.
But there is another issue: ability. We can have the best idea (creativity) but we don't know how to use it (ability).
Sometimes I get good ideas for designs for my jewelry, but maybe I am not familiar with the technique I need to implement, so what do I do? I work and work on the same design until it comes out the way I want. That's hard work, but at the end is worth it.

My question for today is: how do you feed your creativity? And your ability?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Arriesgandome a que muchos de vosotros utiliceis la misma palabra, aqui esta: La palabra de hoy es Creatividad.

Es un hecho el que hay gente que nacen con mas disposicion que otras, hasta el punto donde encuentras gente que solo saben cumplir ordenes, seguir a otra gente  y a las modas y luego encuentras genios como Dali, Shakespeare o Mozart por poner unos ejemplos. 

Me he ido a los extremos, pero que pasa con las personas que estan entremedio?
Cuanta creatividad tenemos? Hay alguna manera de incrementarla? Hay alguna manera de psar de ser mediocre a ser excepcional?

Yo creo que la creatividades como un planta. Todos tenemos las semillas y depende de nosotros el cuidar de ellas, de alimentarlas, y de usarla.  Cuando las cosas no van bien en nuestras vidas, la creatividad puede hacernos mas fuertes y tambien puede servir de refugio.Esta en nuestras manos el que crezca. 
Podemos hacer cursos, estudiar, tener un mentor y practicar muchisimo.

Pero hay otro tema: habilidad. Podemos tener una ide genial (creativida) pero no sabemos usarla (habilidad).

Hay veces en las que se me ocurren ideas para disenhos para mis joyas, pero puede que no  sea familiar con la tecnica que necesito utilizar, asi que, que hago? Trabajo y trabajo en el mismo disenho hasta que consigo hacer lo que queria. Es duro trabajo, pero al final vale la pena.

Mi pregunta hoy es : como alimentas tu creatividad? Y tu habilidad?

B - Bracelets

                                                               
                                                                
                  

Today the letter we have to work with is the letter B.
There were so many things I wanted to talk today with that letter that has taken me half a day to decide what to write, but hey, since I make jewelry what could be better than talk about Bracelets.

Another word that came to my mind was Blessings. The fact that we have to count our blessings and stop taking for granted all that we have. Just look around, look at the news, listen to the radio and see the life of family and friends and you will know exactly what I am talking about. Just look at myself, I went into surgery for a fairly simple operation, but things got a bit complicated and I spent almost a month in hospital and right now I am in bed taking so many drugs to control my pain, but do you know what?, I have a fantastic family and friends who have been taking care of  me at all times. And believe me I am ok, it's just something wrong with my sciatic nerve, and the worst thing that can happen is that I will need crutches to walk, but it is not a breast cancer or a brain tumor. Believe me I am learning a lot trough all this situation and other good thing is that I have all the time of the world to read other people's blogs participating on this challenge.

And now going back to the BRACELETS.
I love to make them, and of course to wear them, specially when the good weather comes and you can show them off. Who doesn't like to wear a lovely bracelet?

Before I start showing you some of the bracelets I've made, I would like to tell you that everything is sterling silver, and I never use plastic or resins, I normally buy the crystal beads to lampworkers and all stones are semiprecious. I get all my material from proper beading shops or from other artists.

This is the first one I made, and it took me one day to sell it. I couldn't believe it! Someone, somewhere wanted to by something that I made, and it wasn't cheap; because when I started to make it I didn't think on how many materials I was using, I was just designing. And since then, that's what I do, I just design, the pricing comes later.


Then I had some leather and I used it with pearls. I wasn't a big fun of pearls until I started to use them. Normally I only make one of each design, so they are exclusive, but this one was so popular that I made five, just as an exception. 
This one has a sterling silver clasp and beads, real leather and a cultivated river pearl.



I don't want to bore you with the story of each bracelet I've made, and let me tell you there is a story behind each one of them, so let me just show you some pictures of the latest ones.
There is something you should know, I am trying to learn to take proper photographs, but it is turning more difficult than expected, so bear with me on that. ;)






I truly hope you like them, and just so you know I am working on setting my on line shop. Wait for the letter E for the grand opening!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

La letra que toca hoy es la letra B.
Habia tantas cosas con esa letra que queria contaros que me ha llevado medio dia decidir que escrir, per hey, ya que hago joyeria y bisuteria que mejor que hablar de pulseras/brazaletes.

Otra de las palabras que me venian a la mente era Bendiciones. El hecho de que tenemos que contar nuestras bendiciones y dejar de dar por sentado nuestra suerte. Simplemente mira a tu alrdedor, lee las noticias, escucha la radio y mira la vida de tu familia y amigos y sabras exactamente de lo que te hablo.
Mirame a mi. Fui a una operacion supuestamente muy sencilla, pero las cosas se complicaron y me pase cerca de un mes en el hospital y ahora mismo estoy en casa tomando una gran cantidad de drogas para controlar el dolor, pero sabes que, tengo una fantastica familia  y amigos que me han estado cuidando todo el tiempo. Y creedme, estoy bien, es solamente que durante la operacion me danharon el nervio ciatico, y lo peor que me puede pasar es que necesite muletas para poder caminar, pero no es un cancer de mama o un tumor cerebral. Lo cierto es que estoy aprendiendo muchisimo a traves de esta situacion y otra buena cosa es que tengo todo eel tiempo del mundo para leer los blogs de otros participantes. 

Y ahora volviendo a las pulseras.
Me encanta hacerlas, y por supuesto llevarlas puestas, sobretodo cuando llega el buen tiempo y las puedes ensenhar. A quien no le gusta llevar una pulsera bonita?

Antes de mpezar a ensenharte algunas de las pulseras que he hecho, quisiera deciros que todo esta hecho en plata de ley y nunca utilizo plasticos o sinteticos, normalmente compra cuaentas hechas a mano a artesanos y todas las piedras son semipreciosas. Compro todo mi material en tiendas especializadas y a artesanos. 

Esta es la primera pulsera que hice, y me llevo un dia venderla. No me lo podia creer! Alguien, en alguna parte queria comprar algo que yo hice y no era barato, porque cuando comence a hacer la pulsera no pense en la cantidad de material que le estaba poniendo, simplemente estaba disenhando. Y desde entonces, eso es lo que hago, primero disenho y luego le pongo el precio.

Tenia algo de cuero y lo utilice con perlas. A mi las perlas no eran algo que me gustasen mucho hasta que comence a trabajar con ellas. Normalmente solo hago una pieza de cada disenho, asi que son exclusivas, pero esta gusto tanto que hice cinco, pero como una excepcion. 
Esta tiene el cierre y las cuentas de plata con una perla de rio cultivada. 

No quisiera aburriros con las historias detras de cada pulsera que he hecho, y dejame decirte que hay una historia detras de cada una, asi que dejame ensenharos fotos de las ultimas que he hecho.
Por cierto, hay algo que deberiais saber, y es que estoy aprendiendo a tomar buenas fotos de mis piezas, pero esta siendo mas dificil de lo que creia, asi que pciencia conmigo ;)

De verdad espero que os hayan gustado, y sabed que estoy montando mi tienda on line. Esperad a la letra E para la gran inauguracion.
