My Design Journal

When I'm at home, when I travel or even when I'm going to any inspiring place such as a fabric store, museum, etc. I usually carry my "Design Journal" with me. What is a designer's journal? For me, it's just a  small sketchbook with white pages where I draw ideas that come to my mind. In addition to that, I paste small pictures that give me even more inspiration to develop my design, fabric swatches that may be a possible selection for that design, etc. I love to do that just because I think it's a better way to have a concrete idea of what you want to achieve in a design, of course that doesn't have to be the final design; it's just a good way to start organizing your ideas. 
I took three pages of my own design journal and I scanned them for you,  just to give you a better idea of what I was saying. The sketches are not that clear because they were drawn with pencil. The sketches are also very small because of the size of the sketchbook, sorry about that. Oh before I forget, I'll be out of town for some days (I'm so excited!!!). I promise I'll post pictures about my trip when I come back. I'll be checking your lovely comments from there because they always brighten up my day 
Take care and see you soon! ♥ ♥

Happy Mother's Day!

Only in your arms I feel save..Only in your eyes I find my truth..I find who I am, I find my path..
Only you know all about me, how I I think. Even in dark moments, there you are...always to give me your hand. You love me the way I am and even love my imperfections, only you know when I need a hug...and if I feel lonely or sad, only your voice can comfort my soul...
You're my best friend, my soul mate, my mom.
I'm the luckiest daughter to have you!
Thank you for loving me so much!
My dear mom, I love you with all my heart ♥

Fabrics, fabrics..

What else can I say? I love fabrics. I think I'm a fabric collector..I have so many fabrics at home that I'm not sure if I'd have the time to use them all...I love interesting and beautiful prints. Whenever I go to a fabric store and I see hundreds of fabric rolls, my eyes immediately catch the ones I love. It's not easy because there are so many fabrics to choose from, but I know what elements I want in a piece of fabric, if it's a printed fabric: An interesting print with a feminine touch, a print that reads "happy, feminine and unique"; I also love floral fabrics! I usually look for natural fibers like silk and cotton, or the eco friendly section, if I'm going to make a dress or blouse. I also like solid fabrics with textures that have a soft hand and feel comfortable on the body. Here are some floral and interesting fabrics swatches that I like; they can be use not only for clothing, some of them are suitable for home decor. I'd love to know which one is your favorite :)

Cotton, silk, knits...Which one is your favorite?


These multipurpose fabrics can be use
for home decor, bags or even for clothing.
It depends on your imagination. 100% Cotton
