Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Calvin Coolidge

Carving stamps is a fun activity, I just love having more and more
of them, this week I made this couple of sheeps which I love!  
I`ve started an inspirational wall about hand carved stamps over my 
pinterest,  I share it now so you can be inspired too, find it here!

I know technology can be overwhelming for some and having too 
many places on the web gets difficult to manage but this
 inspirational walls are fabulous, it`s very helpful for me to have
 them all in one place like this one!  I love pinterest! They keep 
evolving and the changes of their site are always helpful and not
at all changing the way you use it, like other places were you have
to learn how to use it all over again after their changes!!

This bellow are my new Love bags, I`ve painted the fabrics and made
them all from scratch, it`s a lot of work and I am still learning how
to make them but I`ts wonderful to see them come to life!

Every idea that comes to our minds has to be studied, treated and 
practiced a lot before we can start to fly with them but I know for sure 
that it is something we are able to do if we are persistent... 

I believe I can fly! 
 like a butterfly
reach the sky
in my heart


to a better self
to a better state,
to reach the matter 
of happiness.

This bellow ain`t mine, I grabbed it from facebook, 
I know it`s powerful so I wanted to share with you!

And talking about persistence, here is what I`ve been up to in my art school,
a drawing that took me something about 9 to 11 hours of work, thankfully,
Robin was inspiring!  Well, it`s no perfect but I think I did a good job!

This girl has the perfect face, studying the proportions of the face,
me and my teacher discovered this face has no flaws!  Can you imagine 
walking around with no flaws on your face?  That`s amazing!
