upside-down :: new and improved!

2010 has started off well for me and I'm being kept very busy which I like very much! The only problem is that there are lots of future project that I can't show you yet... (but I promise, you will see them as soon as they come out!) 
Now, I am still sending patterns to my agent in Paris and sometimes I use a pattern I did some time ago but that never made it to become anything real... So I give him a little lifting for a more modern look, I add some matching patterns and off it goes... to the worldwide shows! :) I'm happy these patterns don't stay stuck in a drawer (- file of my computer actually -) and get their chance too! Today I am showing you the new and improved upside-down "seaweed" patterns!

Scrapbooking - Umbrella Paper Collection

As I promised you yesterday, I am showing you the entire Umbrella paper collection (+ embellishments) I created for Prima Marketing Inc. last summer. I am super excited to finally introduce you my own scrapbooking collection, and I definitely hope it will not be the last one I design since I had a lot of fun with this one...! :) Let me know what you think about it, would you use it?...

Hurry up...!

There are 3 good reasons why you should hop over to the Prima blog right away...! 
1) First of all..... They are showing sneak peaks of their brand new scrapbooking paper collections... (which are, acording to me, all gorgeous!)
2) ... One of which is mine....!!! (*sigh of excitement!*) My very first scrapbooking collection ever! It is called "Umbrella", it is flashy and bright, happy and colorful, just like a funny day out in the rain!... 
3) Prima is hosting a wonderful giveaway where you could win a set of their scrapbooking flower ornaments!

These reasons should be enough to get all of you running there straight away! ;)

*** happy 2010! ***

I hope you all had a nice Christmas time and a rocking new year's eve!
I have really been enjoying the free time in Paris... 2 weeks of holiday, no work, no worries, no phone calls, no reunions, nothing but relax, family, friends, tea, fireplace, snow, champagne, fun, chocolate, cookies, books... aaahh.... pure happiness!! Now I'm back in Italy and the busyness is on again...! Lots of things to get done soon and hopefully lots of things to show you very soon too! 
This year is also going to be a year of many changes for me... the dolce vita ends in April, and then it's back to France and moving again... but more on that in appropriate time! 
For now, I'll just wish all of you a wonderful, healthy, successful, loving, creative and joyful 2010! Oh and... Thank You for your lovely words, your comments and support in 2009! It makes me going on! :)
