First day and a beautiful sun!

The first day of the year brought with it a wonderful light and such a warm weather. It was a delight to go for a walk and look at the wonderful things nature has to offer!

It's a very silent day, and I'm just loving it so much :)

Happy 2015!!!

Hi :) hope 2015 is a wonderful year for everyone!!! 

May a lot of joy to celebrate the good moments, and a lot of patience and wisdom to overcome the downs come everyone's way!
I made a small list of goals for my year, and I want to accomplish every single one of them! Here it goes!

- Take care of myself and learn to accept who I am, including my past.

Family and friends:
- Cherish the ones I love even more. Try not to let things unsaid, because time flies and saying "I love you" can brighten someone's day a little more.

- Explore as much as I can. Do things I've been postponing (like painting again). Do everything with love. Draw like crazy, take photos until I drop.

- Slowly rebuild my doll and toy collection. Little play things bring me joy, and I'm so happy I finally accept it!

It's not a detailed list because I don't want to write a novel on my first post of the year (I have the novel written in my notebook ^_^) it's just a little commitment list.

My "word" for 2015 - EXPLORE

Hello my blog, long time no see ^_^

It's been more than 1 year since I've posted here. A lot of life transforming events happened to me since June 2013. 
As some of you might know, I've been dealing with depression for the most part of my life. It's been a life of ups and downs, but mostly a life lived in a numb state. 
A lot happened in my childhood to make me grow up as a person with no self confidence, no self trust or love. Yes, it's true. It took me time to accept it, but it's true.
In May 2013 I've reached a point where I could no longer go on living like I did until then. Not only I felt very sad all the time, I felt very tired and sick as well. I had no strength whatsoever. Something had to change!
I went to the doctor to see what could be done, but nothing good came from there. The prescribed solution? Psychiatric help and more pills. Pills, pills and more pills!
NO! There must be something else I can do!!! I said.
And there was :)
I've started to investigate about the possible connections between lifestyle and depression. I couldn't erase my past, but I could try to take care of my future, right?
Thanks to Facebook I discovered a lot of websites related to the matter, and started to change the way I lived. I started by changing my diet to a more healthy and natural way of eating (let's say the amount of vegetables and fruit increased like crazy), and the effects on my energy levels showed up almost immediately! I spent many months taking care mostly of my physical health. I had to build some strength! With the improvements on the way my body felt, things started to change in my mind as well. Very slowly, but they did. This year that is coming to an end, I finally accepted that I should go and make some therapy. Since it started, I can feel the transformation happening everyday!
I came out from a state of numbness, fear and isolation, to a state that I still can't control very well, but it's very exciting! It's like I opened my eyes and now I have the world to discover :)
I want to discover myself, my talent, my possibilities. I want to explore my surroundings and the far away world. Basically, I want to live!
I still have a long way to go (things take time), but now, for the first time in my life, I feel I can be happy (and I deserve it). I'm not saying my life will be easy, but at least I want to make the best of it! Live like I mean it :)

And that's it!
I hope this is the last post I write with the word "depression" on it! Now it's time for a new life! A life full of possibilities that I want to EXPLORE.

Oh, and yes I'll be using my blog again from now on! I'll make some visual changes, but yes, I'm back ^_^

HAPPY 2015!!!

Just a peak on what I'm working on :)
I had this idea that I really love and I'm going to pursue. 

I want to make a custom doll each month (not just Blythe, the doll can be any...). Each doll is supposed to have a theme and I will explore that theme on drawing pieces as well!
I'm working on Antique right now (the custom Blythe), and her theme has to do with old and lovely things, filled with good memories.
She's dressed as a lolita girl, she loves tea and cupcakes, bows and roses. I'm creating a paper doll of her, some stickers, iron-ons for doll clothes, printable stationery, bookmarks, patterned fabric...
These pieces will be sold both in my Etsy shop and my other shop.

Hope you like the idea! I'm loving it :)

WIP Blythe custom - Antique

Some more details on the Blythe doll I'm working on :)
A rose tattoo, her pull charms and her name tag. 
I want to finish her face-up, but the weather has been so rainy lately (not good for drying the sealant)... hopefully this week things change a bit.
Have a lovely week!!!
