I have been doing a lot of planting around the house. Everything looked so green that I thought it was about time to add some color, so I did. There is still a lot to go, but I am happy to see the flowers I planted a week ago blooming so beautifully.

I know it has been a while since my last post; but being a mom for a second time wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I am back now all recovered! andworking on making my bags so I can put out a collection. This is a preview of one of them.

This is an easy way to add some fun to your decor.
For this project I used blue, green and white foam sheets, and a round shape object. You can make it your own by choosing a different shape and/ or different colors. It all depends on your color theme. I used foam sheets, but you can use paper as well. Since my pieces are intended to be play with by my kids; foam seemed to be more durable. I used a circle template to choose the size circle I wanted; you can used any other shape to create your piece. I also cut the circles by hand to leave the edges rough.
I added a ribbon and a tea light to create a nice glow at night. Enjoy!

It has been a while since I last posted anything and I have a very good reason why.
Arttesana is a one person everything. I design, produce and manage my business and I am also a mom and a wife. Everything was very manageable until I became pregnant with my second. I still thought I would be able to manage but the last few months of my pregnancy were very hard. I could barely move so Arttesana had to wait.
I hope to be back in business soon. I am still working on my bag collection, which I will keep you posted as I make some progress. For the moment it is all about my new boy, feeding, washing and sterilizing bottles, and of course, not sleeping.

Love this plant!
Last year I bought two of these plants; I planted one outside to see how well it would do in the winter, the other I planted in a pot and placed it on the window sill. The top photo is the one I planted outside and it did great throughout the different seasons. When I bought it there was one in the center(the hen) and a couple other smaller ones(the chicks) around it. They were pure green; now you can see the purple and a lighter shade of green. Just beautiful! some of the chicks are under it, you can kind of see two of them.
This one, I was lucky enough to save. It wasn’t doing well inside in a pot; the big one died so I took all the tiny ones and planted them outside.
Look at them now, they grew in no time. The best thing about this plant is that it needs very little water. Now that I know it can handle the winter weather I am planning on getting a few more to use as ground cover on my rock garden

It has become a bit hard to find clothes for pregnant women; more so if you have a special event to attend. In my neighborhood there aren’t that many places where I could find such clothes so throughout my pregnancy I have been buying regular clothes, one, two, maybe three sizes bigger. Well, I can’t do that anymore. Let’s say I am a bit bigger than usual. Therefore, I had to come up with a dress on my own if I wanted to wear something to an upcoming event.
