When I started this blog I wanted to write about happy things, good and positive experiences and my art...then I realized that, not writing about the not-so-happy things was like faking that everything is alright, and let's face it, life is not bright and sunny all the time.

As you may know, my mother got sick. I don't have the strength to explain the whole process but, we practically slept outside the hospital for almost 4 weeks and we stayed with her in her room for another week or so until she died on December 4th.

My mom was a very loved journalist so, several people went to her funeral. I got to see people I had never met before and people I had not seen in lots of years...

...my sister and I got home last night, it has been a crazy time but I know my mother is in a better place, with no pain and very happy.

-I want to thank you for your sweet sweet comments and emails. 
I just reopened my Etsy Shop, I'm taking art commissions and I'll start blogging regularly again, I'll start to work on a new layout for the blog and new things for the shop...I bet you'll like them :3

  10. I am so, so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Sending good thoughts and happy vibes to you and your family at this difficult time. It's hard to write something 'proper' at a time like this that doesn't sound like a sympathy card, but please know our family is thinking of you for real-real. <3

  11. Thank you for your support. I know even commenting about things like this is harsh...I'm so glad to be back home and being able to talk to you girls you are the bestest XD I missed you all very much.


  12. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. Losing a loved one is never easy. But I am happy to hear that you got to spend her last days on this earth with her it must of been the best for her to be surrounded by the ones she loved even though things where coming to an end for her. I will be sending good vibes & prayers your way.

    I thought my dad was one of the 700+ killed in the Typhoon that hit Mandano where he lives in the Philippines and I have been a crying mess up until today when I heard he is still alive. It's times like those you just remember all the good memories you had with your loved one and hope that you have no regrets about your relationship.

    I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, even though it will be different I am sure your mother loved your so much and would want you to keep following your dreams.
    Much Love & Prayer from Montreal,
