About Princeton Show




I need to improve my display big time!!!


Yes , Princeton was a great show. Saturday it was super busy, non-stop! Sunday was much slower... but overall was great! Lots of sales, new costumers, some great contacts... and of course the Neckwarmers were one of my big hit... I love to go to great shows like this one, not just to sell , but to meet well educated people who appreciate handcrafted arts...

Sim meu show esse final de semana foi otimo, sabado foi bem movimentado , nao parei! e domingo um pouco mais devagar. Mas no geral foi excelente. Fiz bastante vendas , contato, novos alunos , etc, etc... Os "Neckwarmers " como sempre fizeram o maior sucesso. Eu adoro fazer eventos assim , onde o publico e educado e sabe apreciar um bom artesanato...,

Celebrating a Big Change

YEAH for Obama!!! I feel good that I was there and my vote counted on his victory!!!!! Let's face it , it is not going to be easy for him, but we ( americans) needed this victory. The face of America is changing, again for a better Country...



I let my daughter turn it for me. I wanted to show her that we must voice our opinion by voting. My husband told her that one day she will be telling her kids that her "vote" made history.
Deixei minha filha girar a manivelhinha , e mostra-la assim que devemos sempre votar.

Ola pessoal,
Desculpa o sumico, mas de vez em quando eh necessario...
Nada fazer...
Fazer muito...
Falar pouco.
Agir mais...
Vislumbrar o ceu
Ler mais,
Descobrir que nada sei...
Enfim tomar conciencia de que sou um ser humano,
Ainda com muito a aprender...
E progredir
Um dia chegamos la!!!

Hello all,
I am sorry for my long absence... but I needed to take this break.
Here we are for another season. I hope it will be very prosperous for all of us.

Reciclando sacolas plasticas/ Recycling shopping plastic bags

Retirei essa materia desse site abaixo. Eu achei o maximo!!! Lembrei quando crianca, minha avo juntava saco de leite e fazia, toalha de mesa, avental, etc...

Terra Moda

Estilista cria traje de freira com sacolas de plástico
O estilista francês Franck Sorbier apresentou um look composto por sacolas plásticas, nesta terça-feira, no Cirque d'Hiver, em Paris. O traje, que recebeu o nome de Madre Tereza, se assemelha a um hábito de freira.
O trabalho em patchwork foi composto pela união de diversos sacos usados para embalar produtos em lojas. O designer uniu a inspiração sacra ao tema ambientalista ao utilizar o material reciclável em sua moda para o outono-inverno.




French Stylist, Franck Sorbier, created this piece, recycling plastic shopping bags. He named it "Mother Teresa", because it resembles a nun's outfit.

That reminded me back home many years ago, when the milk was sold in plastic bags, very sturdy. My grandmother would collect them and would sewn them together making tablecloths , aprons, etc.
Too bad I don't have any picture to show it. :(
