And 
 
one might not agree that

but I say

via my etsy shop


Dear readers and friends,

I will be away from the 

computer again 

spending time with a


beloved family member from 


out of town.

I invite you however to 

browse in my 

Etsy shop 

if you wish

to see my attempts to bring

dimension to 

mY fAntasiEs


google

and put

Ideas in Motion.
 
via etsy shop




 










So let's be 

bold and bright


via

and 

With The Time 

You Do Have


wear your 

crown of kindness

Anita we love your images. Have a lovely visit and enjoy yourself. To answer an old question re my breed , I am not sure as I am a rescue from a puppy farm. I was sold in a pub as a King Charles Cav but went to two homes before I found my peeps at 17 weeks old. My peeps thinks I may have Gordon Setter in there somewhere but it is anyone's guess. Have a great time and see you over on my blog soon we hope.
Best wishes Molly

It is apparent by the people who flock to share your message. We are truly blessed by your presence! Beautiful Anita, have a wonderful time with family!

Anita, I now dub you the paper queen, "Le Papier Reine." :) Your art is undeniably a gift. Along with your crown, you bear it very well.

XOXO's,

Bonnie said...

Hello Anita, I love your sweet bookmarker. I did not realize you have become a full fledged artist. Your work is stunning.

One of the reasons I enjoy the Ellen show is that at the end of each program she says "Be kind to one another."

Have a lovely time with your family. Love to you and Ruben.

xo, Bonnie

PS - yes Sadie passed away last November. Life without her is not the same.

Red Rose Alley said...

Anita dear,
This post made my heart sing. First of all, let me tell you I LOVE THE PICTURE OF THE LADY WITH THE RED CAPE! She reminds me of my Spanish genes. The "Be Kind" quote made me smile too. You have been busy this summer with family and friends. And that is what life is about - spending time with our loved ones. Your creations are so unique, and I will have to browse through your etsy shop. I especially like the Kindness tags.

"WEAR YOUR CROWN OF KINDNESS" - I LOVE THAT!!!!! If only we were all so kind with one another. Wouldn't the world be a much sweeter place? Have a nice time with your family coming up. I will be thinking of you, my lovely Anita.
~Sheri at Red Rose Alley

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Okay, I had to come back today to give you your title again, this time with the proper translation. "La reine du papier." tee-hee I forgot French works like Spanish when you translate. So basically last night I dubbed you the Queen Paper vs. the Paper Queen...I think. It was a good attempt though. ;)

Hope you're having a beautiful day.
XOXO

hi-d said...

Hello Anita,

I must confess that I have not been blogging a whole lot lately...staying busy it seems with other things. I go through stages. Getting a little bored though with the Olympics.

Anyway...I did come by a few days ago and took a peak at your shop and was SO impressed by your recent creations and looked at some of the fabulous sales you've had on your items! WAY to GO! I hope you're having fun with your venture. You are amazingly creative with paper. Quite brilliant!

Well, I hope you have fun with your family and enjoy the time away. :)

Much love,
Heidi

Palomasea said...

Enjoy what I hope will be a magical few days with your dear family...
LOVE YOU!!!!

Mimi said...

HI!!!
HOW FUNNY you say this...I tell my Grand daughter who is 4 all the time....YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL....however true Beauty is not what color your hair is or what color your eyes are...for some reason this borwn eyed darling is in LOVE with BLUE eyes...I knwo the feeling.....as ONE of 16 grand children..I being the ONLY BROWN EYE....so I feel her pain and understand...but she seems so young...her Mommy and Daddy have brown eyes..but along came baby brother with the BLUEST eyes ever....and she hears this often.....
But anywho..
I tell her the thing that makes you most beautiful is YOUR HEART....BE KIND and Loving and you will be the MOST beautiful thing ever!!!
Have fun with your friend
hugs 2 U,
jamie

SizzleandZoom said...

Your 'Kindness' gift tags are so charming. I have to decide if I want them in aqua or the pale pink. Beautiful post!

hi-d said...

Hello Anita,

Oh thanks so much for stopping by! Mr. Maximus is at a whole new level with all of the climbing. He really makes me nervous sometimes, but he is ALL boy and I LOVE that...I know you would get a kick out of him if you could see him in action. I need to figure out a way to video tape him without him knowing that I'm doing it. Because once he knows I'm taping him, he usually quits what he's doing and usually tries to grab the camera.

I hope you got all of your cleaning and laundry done and are enjoying your guest. I am so happy that you are enjoying your summer. And how nice that you get to continue your creativity come Fall. Have fun my friend!!!

Heidi

to be hanged and than.......
Hope your family time brings you surprises ......
Lots of hugs

Red Rose Alley said...

Hello sweet friend,
I just wanted to come by and see the flamenco dancer one more time. You were a dancer when you were young? My mother was part Spanish and French Canadian, and my father, Greek, and I used to look at pictures of my mom's sister wearing beautiful Spanish costumes dancing in competitions. I also had to come back to see the crowns. Do you know I have a thing for CROWNS? A happy Friday to you, dear.

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Anita, love, I hope you are enjoying your time away from the computer, but if you peek in for your comments I was wondering if you'd be willing to fill a little shop order/request of sorts... ;) ...when you have time, of course.
Just wondering if a set of 12 cards just like the one you made for The Shop Around the Corner would be possible. AND, would you be willing/able to make them postcard style instead of folded?

Let me know when you have a chance.
XOXO's,
Marcia

Style Diary Of A Fashion Fanatic said...

Hi beautiful Anita!!!!!!!!!
How are you?
This is another amazing post!!!!!!
I love the quote from Mother Theresa...
I can't believe how quick summer is passing; the hot temperatures have gone (107 degrees) but it's still on the warm side (90's). We've had rain the past couple days which are welcome- its been such a dry summer here.
My mom is coming for a visit the end of August. She's in New York City with my dad for a vacation. They attended the 9/11 Memorial; my mom said is was very moving and so sad!!!!!
I hope you're having a wonderful week!!!!
Thank you so much for leaving such kind, uplifting comments on my blog posts!!!! I love reading them!!!!
Luv & Hugs!!!!!!

I have to say hi! You are so fun. You go to comment to Heidi all the time. I see you there and say to myself, has she posted a new fabulous and marvelous post and I haven't seen it?

But no-- I come to your site and there isn't a new post but I then wonder into your most current post and find myself dreaming and emoting and yearning to see more! You stinker!

Your posts are incredibly unique and true to form. Everything about them are mystic and wonder yet full of impressions and artistic pleasures.

Please never stop doing this, please.

OH what fun that you and your cousin look alike...(or resemble) each other. Very sweet.

Yay...I'm happy that you got the sheet music and can put it to good use. It is so fun looking through all of that vintage stuff. Are you looking for more? I should see if my Mom still has some. I know she was cleaning it out - not sure if she got rid of it.

We are having some hot temps! It's in the 90's and we're expected to have a couple of 100 degree days. We are so not use to that kind of weather here. Hope you're staying cool!

Have a good evening!

And Happy Friday to YOU!
What a crazy week. Whew...I'm glad it's almost over. LOL...

How was Ruben's first week of school? I hope it went well. It doesn't seem possible that school is back in session and I can hardly imagine how sad I will be once Maximus starts school. Time goes so fast! But each stage is fun and I'm enjoying him everyday.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. And now I'm off to send you an email. :)

Love,
