Proyecto DIY o ¿Cómo hacer tu propio collar con tela reciclada? (Galería)

Imagen
¿Déjenme escuchar una ovación por mi primer post en español? Bueno, tal vez exagero un poco y tengo delirios de grandeza; o como le decimos de donde vengo: "megalomania obigatoria para postulación presidencial".

De todas formas ya hacía tiempo que venía pensando en hacer una entrada sobre un proyecto DIY (do it yourself) ya que, si corro con la suerte de que sean resguidores, saben que soy una crafter aficionada y autodidacta. Pero ya basta de ostentar vocabulario superfluo y vamos a ponernos manos a la obra.



Preparen sus pantallas y siéntense en una posición cómoda, porque vienen un viaje de fotos explicativas... o al menos eso procuré.

Tutorial para hacer un collar de tela (trapillo) con material reciclado:



Te alegrará saber que no te vengo a enseñar el collar habitual de tela o trapillo, siempre he preferido hacer creaciones diferentes; Por lo cual este modelo está compuesto por rosetones o medallones de tela. Y muchos calambres en las manos; o como se conoce…

Reality shock: Why I didn't cry at my mother's funeral (Spoiler: I'm not evil, I swear)

Before you feel offended! I loved my mother more than my life. She was my best friend and as I grew up I always wanted to be like her.

Paradoxically, I didn't cry because all the love. Or that's what I believe.
Yes, like all mothers she used to get into my nerves but all because she would, also, give her life for me and wanted me to be the best version of a human being I could possibly developt into. I owe her everything.

I was happy. My big latino family was happy; until one day almost five years ago a phone call would change my little nebula, and everybody's around it.



I was alone at work, and someone call me saying my mom was in some sort of "accident" and I needed to get to the airport. She was working in another city at the time. I called my aunts, they were also on their way, so instead I headed home first to get a suitcase with the basics and then I'd get a cab to the airport.

On the way home I was serene, I wasn't worried, all could repea…

7 Reasons why Ben Affleck is a hell of a good Batman (if not the best)

Now, let me tell you something, there are some reasons out there of why people in general hate Ben Affleck regardless making the Batman/Bruce Wayne character and I can’t find a solid good one to tell me: "Hey, that's it".

Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a huge Ben Affleck fan, haven’t seen Gone Girl, wich is apparently one of his best recent performances; nor even ever watched Good Will Hunting wich grant him an Oscar award. But I did loved The Accountant and, on the other hand, definitely greatly disliked -not to say hate- Daredevil.

And before you continue reading, let’s get one thing straight, I do think Affleck is a great Batman, and you might or might not continue reading after this statement, but if you do choose to stay, just let me tell you why.

First of all, there are two main reasons I could gathered why Batman fans don’t quite see Affleck as the Dark Knight. One has to do with the reincarnation of our superhero in the flesh of Christia…

Hello there, folks

This is my presentation post on my other blog... in case you want to check it out: it's about me!

Apparently I have failed in making an important step in the Steemit community: Introducing myself. Mistake that I'm ready to overcome right now.

Of course, as half of the world population I do love to talk about myself; in fact I tend to have long conversations inside my mind and, obviously, I have practice my Oscar speech for best script ... A LOT of times. But the truths about talking and writing about one self are quite different. Somehow, writing is much more compromising, more deep and more personal.

What to say? What to write not to look like a complete shallow human being? Oh, gawd... I heven't done anything specially important for the world even that I'd love to co-write my autorized biography alongside Bret Easton Ellis or Elizabeth Wurtzel.

Nevertheless, I'll be straight and keep it simple by just saying 7 facts about me... seven stuff top of m…

High end of low? The nervous breakdown and lovelust of Marilyn Manson

Imagen
I might be a little sentimentalist right here but; guys: I'm worried. I'm worried about Marilyn Manson.

Now, hold on, don't look at me like that. I am not concerned about how a rock singer could affect nowadays post-terrorism youth; or how a 49 year old man with make-up could affect the modern aesthetics steriotypes of middle-America.

No, we're over that. It's getting old, actually.

Maybe somehow it's a bit late to be writing about this, but the truht it's been hunting me since it happened. As you might have read or, worse yet, seen: Marilyn Manson had a mental and emotional breakdown on stage. Now hear me out cuz I'm writing this past my bed time after two cups of green tea. I'm living on the edge!

A day after last Valentine's day, the Antichrist Superstar was giving a concert at the Paramount in Huntington, NY where he just cut his show short after demanding more and more "displays of love f…
