Els nous encants vells

I’ve always loved flea markets, and there’s one particular market here in Barcelona that I absolutely adore! It’s called “Els Encants Vells”

I’ve found here tons of objects and materials for my shop as well as good old books I never though I’d see again! From cloths to old LP, fabric, antiques, movies and sewing material, this market is one of my favorite places in the world.

I remember when I saw this awesome weird shoes!!! Image

I got this Polaroid which still works for 3 euros!

The awesome thing about this place is that you never find the same stuff. They always change the things! Most of the antiques are from old houses whose owners died and none claimed their belongings. At least their precious objects find a new home this way. I’d love to see all the hidden stories and secrets this valuable objects hide!

ImageI’ve also bought lots of video games and game-boys πŸ™‚

Well this wonderful place was placed into a bigger and modern spot last week, next to where it used to be. I went with my hubby to check it out last Saturday. And well I must say I prefer the old one. This new place is huge!!! It was packed! It was quite an experience to go through it!

I need more time

Who hasn’t heard it before? I need more time

I need more hours in my days… Lot’s of people say that. I do need more time! Among teaching, yoga, chores and projects I barely have time for my crafting and blogging… 😦

I wish I could organize my classes better but it’s not 100% up to me, some of my students (or should I say all of ’em) have quite different schedules.

I have to say that also the whole photo-shoot thing kept me pretty busy and focused. And even though we’re finish taking pics we were highly disappointed by someone who was supposed to help us with the final Photoshop details. That person was supposed to get payed and everything, is not that he was gonna make it as a favor or for free, but he wasn’t taking the job seriously enough and he ended up ruining the pretty pictures we made. Lame excuses were made and I must say that I expected much more from this guy (based on previous work he’s done).

Oh well, the good thing is that we found someone professional who is doing it right. I’m still a bit pissed because we wasted our precious time with the other guy… But there’s no point in wasting my energy on that…

I hope you’re enjoying the weekend! I’m trying! πŸ™‚ Image

It’s a wrap!!!! Photo shoot day 6

IT’S A WRAP!!! FINALLY!!! After another long week and weekend we are finally done with the photo-shoot… I’m beyond exhausted cuz I had a rough week at school and well thank God today I had the day off. I hate not writing on my blog every day, but I was very busy and tired. But now I’ll be a bit more relaxed πŸ™‚

Here’s another sneak peak!

Working under pressure… Photoshoot day 3

Weekend… what’s that? LOL… I had to work all weekend, photos, photos and more photos. To be honest this thing should have been done a while ago, but we were lazy. I dunno why I work much better under pressure. We’re almost done, but another long weekend is around the corner.I must admit that not everything was work. Yesterday I had the chance to be in some yoga videos. It was very fun, we were doing asanas in the middle of the street! They recorded us and it was so much fun! I can’t wait to see these mini videos! Then I had to get back to work…

I’m very tired, but quite happy with the results! πŸ˜€ Here’s a sneak peak!

Photo shoot day 2

Oh Jeez! TGIF! I’m beyond exhausted and I won’t have a relaxing weekend as I would like. Back to school was good at least I survived my first classes, let’s see today how it goes cuz I have a group of 15 teenagers and well they don’t exactly behave.

Among all the things I’m preparing and doing I still have to take more pictures for my hubby’s book. Although the weather isn’t helping, we got some pretty good pics yesterday. I just want to finish this and focus on my classes!!! Have a nice weekend and I hope you can relax! πŸ™‚

Book Cover & Murphy’s law

This week has been crazy and it’s just Wednesday!!!! OH GOD! I’ve got tons of work among logo design, photo shoot, preparing private lessons and all the material for tomorrow’s back to school activities at school.

I guess it’s back to reality time… I just hate Murphy’s law. I had basically nothing to do during the summer, and the suddenly I’ve got this huge amount of stuff to get done. The good thing is that I’ll start earning money again! Oh well!

Today was a long day, I got up quite early this morning, had breakfast and started with the photo shoot. It was cloudy and rainy and thank god for the lights we bought cuz I have no idea what we would have done if we didn’t had them. My eyes hurt (I suppose I shouldn’t be on the computer…) and I’ve got a headache, but at least I got pretty good pics. When I had no more good light to continue I finished a book cover for a Short Stories Compilation. I’m quite excited cuz this book will be printed next week! There are the two final options! I hope the navy background cover is the winner, it is my fav! What do you think?

Back 2 School & Photo Shoot

Image

Holidays are over! I’m gonna be pretty busy this week organizing classes, buying material, going to meetings and much more stuff. Thank God I got lots of material from 2 great editorials.

I’m also helping my hubby with a photo shoot. He’s designing a natural and organic cosmetic book. We’ve been preparing the studio (more likely our kitchen) and between these and that I can expect a long exhausting week. Wish me luck!
