Living in a glass house

I love glass houses, though I doubt I'd ever live in one (I still have some longing for privacy, not much, just a bit). This type of place always seems to be built in the middle of nowhere so you can avoid pesky peeping neighbours. In Santambrogio's glass homes, almost every piece of furniture is made of glass too. Take a look at these Italian wonders (I especially adore the mansion sitting on water):

So I'm back from outer space...

... and couldn't resist sharing these amazing dresses, made entirely out of paper!! I found these at The Daily Mail's website, they're all part of Pret-a-Papier, an amazing collection of costumes designed by Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchagrave. Read more about it here. Not a stitch of fabric involved!

I'm done with Blogger. Well, not totally, I still use my Spanish blog pretty often, it's ideal for my long this-is-my-first-language rambles. But when it comes to my stiff English, I've recently become very attached to Tumblr. Its fast posting system is perfect for my rapid blasts of design and moods. So here you have it:

I don't think I'll be updating this Blogger page any more (or at least for some time), so I'd really appreciate the follow if you have a Tumblr account!

I've been so busy lately, with one thing and the other, that I've hardly had time to list new Miss Cristal jewellery. What I have been doing is taking photos of the beautiful Natalia, who kindly offered to pose for a pin up session I carried out with some friends for the humour Spanish site zasbaidefeis. I'm quite pleased with the results (except for the post-editing, since a few of the photos aren't properly edited... I really should have done that myself), and I managed to sneak in a few of my pieces for my own Miss Cristal profit! This is my favourite, I just love the picture!:

I have also devoted waaay too much time on more origami. Here's a sample of my latest, cute little handpainted gift boxes!

Cyanide and Happiness is one of those webcomics that gets stick drawings right.

Not myself today

I've recently joined a treasury team on Etsy, and have been making loads of treasuries, as well as being featured in quite a few. This is my most recent attempt, hope you like it! (Treasuries are member-curated selections of Etsy items):
