Carve a stamp and be happy!

I have some news in my life. I went to London, it was just for four days but I had so much fun and enjoyed every minute there. I keep thinking UK would be a perfect place for me to live in. 

I wish I can live there some day. Meanwhile I'm carving like crazy and, hopefully, if I have enough students I'll be doing my first carving stamp workshop on 8th February. I have everything ready as I tried to do it in January, but I didn't have students, so let's try again. In order to get known by more people I created a Facebook page where you can see also almost all the stamps I do.

This pair of stamps are from Geninne's book, it's a must have! I love her work and her templates are so beautiful. So, my beloved penpals, you're going to be happy!!

Strange instects like me

I've been a little down for a while. I need to think about what to do with my life while living between two houses, none of them my home. So I feel stuck again, but I'm trying to enjoy my Christmas. As always, there's something positive and it's that I'm not spending that big amount of money in presents as I used to.

Trying to give myself a break and, as a little whim to my traveller soul, I'm going to spend 4 days in London. I'll meet my lovely friend S, who I met in Nottingham, and I'll recharge my happiness for a long time. I can't wait to go there again and listen to the people talking in English, gosh, believe me if I tell you I miss that language like crazy! It's been around 8 months without listening English more than 1 hour. I might die when I listen "fudge" or "tree" or "see ya". By the way, do you know "see ya" sounds like "silla"?? Silla means chair in Spanish and I tell you British say it exactly the same than Spanish. But the English "t" sounds great to me, I want to be boarding right now!!

Well, let's chill out and wait patiently. Do you remember my last strangest animals? Now it's time for insects. I found this orchid mantis in Colossal, it's really impressive. Every day I'm most captivated by nature, I've always been. Since long time ago I think the most perfect funeral for me would be that they leave my body in the forest so the animals, insects and soil could something useful with me.

You can find more other mantis like these if you search floral mantis. I really like them, it makes me think "How the fuck can the nature create the whole world!?!? I love you Mother Nature.

Some music

I've been listening the whole time to Simon & Garfunkel. I try to catch what they say and learn their songs by heart, and some times I do it. And other times I just understand what they do... with two minutes delay, but I'm happy anyway ^ o ^

I wanted to share with you my S&G love. I love them so much! People here just know "The sound of silence" but I think they have many other better songs. They're quite versatile, indeed. I found this song which reminded me another one by Ylvis. Enjoy your Sunday!
