Getting ready for Brookwood Farmer Market

My banner is not ready yet :-( we know, when we are inspired our motivation and inspiration comes from I decided to create my own banner in the meantime! I did not like how it came, but at least I had a way to get ride of my frustation since I can´t have it today.

God had been so grateful to me and to my love ones. Even at sad moments he had been always with us and while thinking of  the hard moments I had been through in life, I realize that those sadness moments did not last long if I kept walking toward my dreams, so today I felt like writing this on my daily journal.
                                                                   KEEP DREAMING!

My Handmade Cooking Journal

I run out of the pages on my sketchy cooking journal, and thought before starting another, to share some pictures with you, the cook lovers!:-)

Here, I have my space to glue recipes, indexcard, rewriting recipes from loose recipe cards, and in this way I can find them easily when I need them.

Since this is my first one, it's not much organized, but I enjoyed some much making it, and the best part is that now I can have all my favorites recipes in just one place, however I was thinking in a better idea, creating at least 3 now, so in that order I can organize them better, making one for my favorite pasta dishes, another one for bread, pizza and focaccias, another for my sotto olio (oil preserved ) recipes.
I will keep you posted on my advances!

My First Farmer Market

I know that I had been dissapear from blogging and art lately, but my business had been keeping me a little bit busy.

I participated last week on my first farmers market and it was a great experience, what I enjoyed the most was the contact with so many lovely and beatiful people, I felt like breathing a new air, like living in another new world, the farmers market atmosphere it's just increible, I love the all natural and eco friendly atmosphere it was in there.I had a lot of fun and enjoy it so much!

Also I'm trying to finally publish my website and my new eshop, so this and keeping my gourmet food production running are taking me a lot of time, but not that much to share with you the pictures taken last week at the farmers market!

I wish you a wonderful week!

I can't stop..

I'm suppost to be making this backgrounds to make my second cooking recipes journal, but I can't not stop doing them. I enjoy some much, being creative, using whatever I found near me, that keep me going. At least I have thousands of recipes so I guess someday I will use them, in the meantime..I'll continue enjoying my journal.

Before my recycled trash can was always FULL, now barely I can fill half ot it!! Everytime I'm going to drop something, on my way to the imagination start flying, and start finding some many ideas with that piece..that I decide to keep it.

Some of these backgrounds I'm posting today, were made on empty extra olive oil cans, empty pasta boxes and in an empty delicious donuts box

I will love to share with you where my art journaling love and passion started. I think every step we make in our lifes have a reason to be, I really don´t know how I turned out finding this beatiful and inspired blog, since I always was focused on my cooking and all themes related with food, cook and specially ITALIAN cooking.

But as I do with cooking where I just start experimenting, blending, mixing different flavors, ingredients, herbs and techniques, I found out how I could blend this new acquired passion Thanks to the wonderful Julie at her BALZERDESIGNS blog.

So I start creating my art journals pages where now I just create with them journal cooking, recipes, and all my experience in my cooking journal.

I hope you find this blog as inpisrational as I did!
