You Never Know When You will See Your Babies

This is so beautiful! I opened our mail today to find this...

This is one of our headbands, a Pixy Pocahontis, on the cover of a pamphlet for our daughters school.
What a wonderful, happy surprise :)
It brought tears of happiness to my eyes, silly I know but it made me so happy.
I wonder if that was intentional or just
luck of the Pixy :)


Another thing that made me so happy...
My friend Chris wore a pair of Nato Botto earrings for her wedding.
This is awesome!
Aren't they beautiful?
The couple that is, giggle.
The photographer of their wedding pictures is Rebecca Doehring.
Great Work!!!

They also had their wedding rings made by a fellow Etsy Artist.
I love handmade!

The Violence Prevention Center Show

Good Day!

Well what a nice little show we attended last night.
Dancing, wine and food, oh yeah and sales :)

Genie and I had a pretty snazzy time.

Here are some pictures of our display...

This mannequin shot was taken in the studio during our practice set-up. Isn't it SO cute? IT is a Silvestri Head that we found in a cute little boutique in Kirkwood, Mo.
It works so great for these headbands, almost as if she were made just for the purpose of showing off these cute little Pixy Pocahontis wears:)

This is another shot taken in the studio.

Now for a little close-up shot taken by Genie:)
Good one.

Here is a little glimpse of my new inspirational art series that was displayed amongst all the jewelry and fit in just perfectly:)

Fun Fun Fun....

These hanging danglin babies, ah, I wuv em.
and finally.....

Mine says I am grateful!
Have a great weekend all and remember....
Follow Your Heart!

I find myself to be a very abundant person.
What made me start my blog with that statement?
Well, let me say first, that
I am VERY grateful,
for everything.
Life is so full when there is so much to be happy for.. so many things loved and therefore...
I am abundance of life :)
I would like to share with you a little bit of the abundant creation going on at Nato Botto Art...
This is part of the Titanic collection.
If you have not seen the introduction to the collection you can go back to one of my older posts and see the inspiration behind the creations.
When looking upon the pictures, they remind me of trinkets that have fallen to the bottom of the sea and have been discovered by
artist mermaids who've turned them into these beautiful creations. They have a wet look to them, almost as if they were just retrieved from the bottom of the ocean and are dripping with water of the seas.
The movement they have when hanging from your ears is playful and sexy.
They move like seaweed drifting in tide.

Oh those beautiful pieces!!!

Yesterday was Great!!!! Such focus and very pleasantly organized creative energy here at studio Nato Botto Art.

I worked on finding an illustrator/avatar/banner/business card/letterhead designer for the new adventures that are about to take flight, and for a more "professional" look to Nato Botto Art.I was successful in finding someone, now my next step is to contact them with details.. OOOOO I hope she is interested in taking this project on, because her work is awesome and I think it would be a great collaborative fit.

Hellloooo Tuesday and What a Great Day You Are!

Well still learning about this photo uploading thing, for as one can see this picture is not the best quality. I WOULD erase it and do over but I don't know how to erase this darn photo out of this blog post, ahhhh, another learning journey....
ANYWAYS on to the goodness of the day..
I love these new earrings.
I also came up with my tattoo designs and am sooo looking forward to getting them too.. BUTTTT I have to get the courage to have them all done too. lol
That very reason, fear, is why I totally want them. They will be like my wonder woman wrist bands repelling any doubt from myself or others. One will say "Faith"-plant your seed the other wrist saying "just be"-no attachments One could read the two wrists together as "Faith, Just be" OR "Just be faith" I like the second of the two.
Just be faith, it's as simple as that. Faith in who we are as individuals, without judgement. With this faith we could all reach the stars, ya know.. I'm heading that way...If anyone needs a little wrist power let me know. I'd be glad to flash em. :)
I love today!!! It felt so good. Thank you universe for whispering in my ear and planting such wonderful visions in my head. I am so grateful..
I love my husband, he is a beautiful man and is working extremely hard right now and could use a great big hug from us all. Could you vision up a hug for him?? Sekou, babe, here's a hug for you XXXXXXXXXX, oh wait is that the kiss? lol OOOOOOOOOOOO Oh who cares he can get both. Love you honey. Thank you for believing in me, even when I seem to be all over the place. Thank you for seeing the pieces to my puzzle and how they all fit together, and that its all just a matter of time, good, loving, time.
Have you told someone you love them and are grateful for them today???
Genie, I am grateful for all your help, friend :)

Todays creations....

A pair of Babushka ladies. Each one with their distinct personality and both full of love.
Lots of patience and faith went into these lovely Mama's.
I'd like to give thanks to John Bertorelli for taking the time to teach me some illustrator today. I felt leaps happening and I like speed. lol
Have a great evening all. Follow your heart!

Upside down :)

When facing a challenge.....

Turn that frown...
