My Partner for the Bead Peeps Swap and Hop

Bead Peeps 2015 Blog Hop Badge

 

I signed up to a new challenge The Bead Peeps Swap and Hop; hosted by a wonderful Facebook group that I really enjoy so much.  Recently the partners was announced and I have the honor to be paired with a wonderful and super talented lady Nan Smith.

Nan is from Canada and she is the host of My Country Blog Hop, that I participated the last year and really enjoyed.  She has been making jewelry for 4 years and recently start to making beads and components in polymer clay.  Now she said, she is addicted to polymer clay!  I think everybody has something to be addicted or feel in love with.

I didn’t visit Canada yet (who know… someday) but I always remember an oral report that I have to make for school. ¬†And the first time that I saw the flag of Canada, I fall in love with that beautiful maple leaf. ¬† I don’t know why; but the image¬†always comes to my mind.

Thats all for now, but stay tuned to my next post. ¬†I’ll been “showing” what I’ll be sending to my lovely partner but Shhhhhhh!!!¬†¬†she does not find out. It will be a secret between us!! :))))

Nature and Culture : My Country blog hop

I’m a little bit late! ¬†But thank God I’m Here!

Nan Smith, a Canadian bead blogger is hosting the My Country blog today.  The challenge is to use our country as a inspiration. My lovely country is Puerto Rico and, like all of the countries of the world, have a lot of places, views, etc. to get inspired.

I normally mention that I always get inspired by nature. ¬†My hometown is Aibonito and locally is known as “The City of the Flowers”

For this blog hop I want to show some of photos of flowers and how I get inspired to create enameled components for jewelry.

I love birdies, and I live surrounded of lovely birds.  Here is a photo of one of our local birds and how I made a lovely toggle clasp.

Tres Reyes Magos

 

We celebrate The Three Wise Men day on January 6.  Some people said that we have the longest christmas season in the world.  We start to celebrating on Thanksgiving Day until January 6.

Thank you so much for visit my blog….. And now; I invite you to visit the rest of the participants…..

Practice, practice and more practice

The other day, I was practicing for my photography class. ¬†Honestly, sometimes I feel like…. “I don’t know what the h*@# I’m doing!!!” ¬†My Professor says that takes time and a lot of practicing to get that all the information be recorded in your brain. ¬†And he says “You’re doing right. ¬†Just peace yourself and enjoy what your’e doing.”

So, I take his word…. Here’s some pictures… Enjoy!!!

Casa Federico Degetau, Aibonito Puerto Rico

Les comento que desde hace mucho en mi coraz√≥n, rondaban dos deseos que anhelaba fervientemente. ¬†De esas cosas que en ocasiones te hacen decir…. “me gustar√≠a caminar por la plaza del pueblo, hace mucho que no lo hago” o ¬†de esas que tal vez “deseo lanzarme en paraca√≠das”… Pues, as√≠ me encontraba yo desde hace alg√ļn tiempo. ¬†Casualmente ayer tuve el privilegio de cumplir uno de ellos, el cual era visitar la Casa Museo Federico Degetau.

Les advierto que no soy una fotógrafa profesional.  Pero, aun así deseo compartir con ustedes algunas fotos que tomé de esa agradable visita que pude dar a la Casa Museo.
