The big news is...

The news...
...that the next time I set up my inspiration board it will be in a new town :)
I took time off to organize our things and get ready to move once again, whew!
We recently sold our beautiful home and we'll be moving to a rented place
while Manolo builds our next house starting January 2010.
We are moving to the outskirts of the beautiful colonial city of Queretaro,
located 160 miles northwest of Mexico City.

I'm really excited to share this new adventure with all of you.
I will probably re-open up my Etsy shop the first week of December
if I have the internet up and running at the new place.
We will be taking a one week vacation at the beach starting tomorrow
and I'll be blogging all about it from our destination.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my previous post,
I'm so happy you liked those birdies!

How do you leave all these beautiful homes? I guess you have the bonus of building new ones, taking great ideas with you wherever you go. Can't wait to see the next creation.

Have an amazing time at the beach, dear friend and please don't forget to send us a little turbo video to tide us over. I am afraid I am deep into turbo withdrawal at this point.

Congratulations Geninne!
I know you have experience moving and I know your wonderful organizational skills are a big help. Nevertheless, it is a lot of work and I am glad you have a chance to take some time off with your family.
Looking forward to see your wonderful artwork from Querétaro!
As always you are an inspiration.

Wow, what an amazing video! I've lived on the Texas/Mexico border for the past 8 years and it is such a dry and ugly place on both sides. Just a few months ago we drove down to Guanajuato city, San Miguel de Allende and surrounding areas and stayed with friends for a week. It was soooo beautiful! I didn't want to come home. After the dusty barreness of borderlife, it was so thrilling to experience the true beauty of Mexico! Just thinking about it gives me goose bumps! You are so blessed to live there!

Ayer descubrí tu blog y hoy que vives en Querétaro, como mi cuñada Olivia y su esposo...
También en una de tus fotos vi una caja de laca igualita a una que compré en mi último viaje a México. Decorada con pájaros, en amarillos y naranjas sobre fondo negro, es una maravilla (como tus dibujos). Me encanta abrirla y oler su madera. Hace casi tres años que la tengo y aún desprende un maravilloso aroma.

Sigo con mi recorrido por tu blog, hasta ahora todo lo que he visto me ha encantado.
