Hi everyone! I’m back from Spain; we had a great time, but coming back home to bills and laundry and grocery shopping and work is always a bit rough, no?
Wasn’t it great to have Karin share some of her favorite things this week? Thanks for filling in, Kar. It’s nice to have a fresh voice. Didn’t you love yesterday’s monster hats? So cute. Wish my girls were small enough to still wear them.
Next week, I’m going to post some photos from the trip, if you’ll be so kind to indulge me, but today, let’s talk about Ana Aceves, whom I learned about on Natascha Rosenberg’s blog.
You can imagine my sheer delight to win Ana’s 2010 desk calendar in a giveaway on her blog. I love her delicate and sweet illustrations. I am so happy to have this calendar. Which is your favorite month? I like May, August (of course – birthday month!) and October.
Oh, who am I kidding? I love them all.
And take a look at these dioramas (you MUST see them full size at her website). They are magical.
Between Ana Aceves, Blanca Gómez, and Natascha Rosenberg, I clearly have a love affair with Spanish artists.
Yesterday, by the way, was our first anniversary here at Charlotte’s Fancy. That’s when Karin said to me, “I’m thinking about writing a blog. Want to do it with me?” And I accepted, without hesitation. Who knows how long we’ll keep this up, but I’ve really enjoyed the creative outlet for the last year, and I so appreciate everyone who stops by here to read our little posts each day. xo
