Christmas Angel Cards

When I think on someone that means to me a lot, I like to make something special for that person.
This time I made these two Christmas Angels,
but I wanted to make something different that the regular cards for Christmas.
Something that you would like to keep it in a place where you can see it often.
It is said, that every time a bell rings an Angel earns its wings.
Buy my cards on my Etsy Store, they are only for 1.00 dolar,
you can print as many as you want to.
Print them out, cut, and put a bell with a cotton cord, and give them as a small present.
I thank you for supporting my art and business.

Christmas Angels

Christmas Angels
I must tell you the true, I live in the country, my husband and I live in a small house in the country, in the back yard there are a few trees, most of them are and will be to provide wood for the wood stove, but every year, there are some new ever green pine trees there.
Four years ago, I had the idea to go out and pick the best of those young trees for Christmas, I thought it was a good idea, in Spring we could bring it back to the back yard.
Frist year worked good, as the second, not the next year, the little young tree didn't make it, and the last year, the little one is still alive, but not in good shape.
So, no more natural Christmas tree for Ale this year.
So I bought a little Christmas tree for the dollar store, not a fancy one, and took me a while to think about how did I want to decorate it.
Do you remember those Vintage Angels, I remember when I was young, I used to go to the store with my mom, and look at them all the time. They used to had something that I could get my eyes from them.
So this year, I have my little Christmas Tree decorated with my own little Angeles.
You can print them out, cut, and use them as you like, to decorate your Christmas Tree, or use them as gifts cards.
If you are looking for more Christmas Angels, you can find some on my Etsy store.

3 Free Coloring Pages, One Day at the Circus

One Day at The Circus
3 Free Coloring Pages.
Working with children when the weather outside is cold and windy,
as this past week happened here in South Quebec, can give me some challenge,
How to keep them busy and happy and the same time,
and away from the TV.
-Let's play to the circus!, I told them
You should have seen their faces, how can we play to the circus inside of the house?
- Oh, that can be easy, I told them, if we make a drawing of what we would like to see in the circus!
So, Ale grab some paper and a pen and start asking each one of them, what do you want to be today?
- Me, an elephant!! said one of the kids,
- Me, a giraffe!
- Me a horse, but not a regular one!
- ok, I told them, let's draw them really something!
Being an illustrator and working with 3 kids, boys and same age, it's a gift for me, doing what I love to do, and see the happiness my drawings can bring to them,
I couldn't be happier.
I made today for you these coloring pages, if you have little ones at home, and the weather is not to nice outside, I hope to give to your little ones something to do.
You can let me know if they spend the whole afternoon or evening busy coloring the elephant, the hipo and the giraffe.

Un dia en el Circo
Paginas para colorear.
El clima en Quebec fue muy frio y con mucho viento la semana pasada, tiempo de quedarse dentro de casa, eso es fácil de decir, pero cuando tengo que trabajar con tres pequeños,
mantenerlos lejos de la casa, ocupados y tranquilos, no es fácil.
Una ventaja de ser ilustradora y trabajar con pequeños,
es que de mi lápiz o pluma pueden salir cosas que llenan la mente de los pequeños.
Y al estar haciendo los dibujos con los pequeños a tu lado, ver sus caras, preguntarles,
qué animal quieres ser tú hoy en el circo?
- Ale, cómo puedo ser yo un animal dentro de la casa, si un elefante es muy grande?
Los pequeños de los que les platico solo tienen 4 años, de manera, que al ver como de mi pluma van saliendo los animales del circo, se entusiasman y me van pidiendo más y más.
- Ale, ponle patines!! dice uno.
- Sí Ale, ponle patines, pero de hielo!! dice otro.
- Ahora dibújame a mi arriba del elefante!!
y así fue mi tarde de mal clima con los pequeños.
Aquí te dejo estas tres hojas para colorear, las puedes descargar, y si tienes pequeños en casa, que quieran pasar un rato divertido dales estos dibujos.
Ya luego me cuentas como la pasaron.
Que tengas un muy buen día, y vuelve pronto, que tendré más para ti!!

Paper Doll

Paper Doll
I use to remember when I was young, my mom used to buy some paper dolls, as I have 4 sisters, our mom had to find the way to keep us busy, so once in a while she used to buy for us some,
What fun was to get those paper dolls and play with them, even time has changed, I think some girls might have some fun playing with paper dolls, as winter is coming, and there will be some days everybody will stay inside, I have a free Paper Doll for you, but it is not just another one, it's Miss Fox!!, well at least for me it is something great,
Well, you can download it for free, and have some fun, and you can tell me later how did it go,

Instructions are simple, and you might know them already, print, cut and have fun!
I used a tape to tape Miss Fox, so it can stand better.
Another thing I think it is important to tell you, I'm using  Photo Paper to print out this doll, it is thicker than regular paper, easy to use, I had found it in the dollar store, so it is not so expensive, but if you use regular paper, it will work good too.
Hope you have some fun with Miss Fox.
I thanks you for your visit, have a good one!

Muñeca de Papel
Hace ya algunos años, cuando era yo pequeña, mi mamá solía comprar muñecas de papel, para mi era una gran cosa, como las amaba, pasar las tardes después de la escuela, recortando y jugando con ellas!!
Pues bien, por estos rumbos, se acerca el invierno, y algunos días tendremos que quedarnos dentro de las casas por el clima, y si en casa tienes pequeñas que les guste jugar con muñecas de papel, aquí te tengo una para descargar gratis, y no es solo una muñeca más de papel, es Miss Fox, bueno al menos para mi lo es!!
Descarga una o cuantas tú quieras!, yo la imprimí en papel para fotografía, ya que acá es difícil encontrar el papel opalina que usualmente compraba yo en México y que es perfecto para las manualidades, pero el papel fotográfico es más grueso que el papel normal y da buenos resultados, eso si, estoy usando el papel mate sin brillo, pero si tu no lo consigues, puedes usar el papel normal, segura estoy que te dará buenos resultados.
Luego me cuentas como te fue, que tanto jugaron tus pequeñas con Miss Fox.
Muchas gracias por tu visita y nos vemos pronto nuevamente.
Qué tengas un muy lindo día!!

It's always nice to see a happy and smiling people around us, I hope my little happy and smiling angels brings good moments and fun, while you make them,
print one or many, you can use to hang them on the Christmas tree, or use them as tags, or just hang them on a corner where you need to see a happy face looking at you.

You just need to print it out, cut and glue, remember to place a cotton lace between the two angels.
Remember also to Pin them to your Pinterest, and share them on your Facebook, and tweet about them, I will thank you!!
