Mucho ABOUT ME

Hey world!

I'm Victoria Mena, the creative soul behind these crafty creations. I'm here with the sole purpose to inspire other creative souls and to share my experiences in this fascinating journey that is LIFE as a creative person.

]

Just in case you wonder... M.U.C.H.O-C.R.A.F.S

*[MOOCHO] Spanish for "lots" or "much".*[CRAFTS]we all know what that is... lol


I have lived in beautiful Canada since 1986. Before that, I grew up in the beautiful southerner city of Seville, Spain where I learned to appreciate beauty in the form of Moorish-Medieval architecture and floral vegetation around the city that watched me become whom I am today. My mother was my very first source of inspiration and dedication not only as a creative person but also as a woman for raising 9 children from the "50's, to the 70's without forgetting to redecorate every 6 months at least... wow!


Living in North America, where the craft movement evolved to become part of the culture, it's made it very easy for me to expand my crafty skills and to applied that skill to my everyday life. 
Canada is the country to be if you're an adventurous, creative person like myself, perhaps due to its ethnic diversity, Canadians thrive in the crafts field like no other Nation, it's easy to fit-in among many sharing your same creative instinct. I LOVE CANADA!

With this Blog I want to share all my knowledge and expertise in a fun and visual way with everyone who enjoys DIY, crafts and decor projects and I also want to promote this positive movement in my country of birth, Spain therefore, you will see comments in Spanish and a "translate button" to help them understand my posts.

I hope you enjoy this Blog and Please, don't forget to comment!!
Gracias!!

Charlie and Victoria

  4. Me parece super originales, como tu bien dices, muy complicado de hacer en españa, pero se puede intentar, aunque algo importante es tener tu habilidad. Felicidades y sigue con ello.

    1. lo que mas me ha inspirado a recurrir a la imaginacion ha sido la falta de materiales o los medios para conseguirlos... La creatividad no tiene limite siempre que disfrutes creando!!

    2. Muy chulas las paginas que has puesto, pero, no voy a poner el vinilo que me queda para eso, pero si tengo unas cuantas cassetes, pero no se me ocurre como pegarlas, me das una idea?

    3. Eso es un poco mas dificil pero no imposible...
      Aqui te ensenan a hacerlo cajas de luces...
      http://livingpractically.blogspot.ca/2012/05/80s-lighted-cassette-tape-centerpiece.html
      Te propongo que hagas dos cajas (con o sin luces de Navidad dentro) y las pongas a los extremos de un grupo de libros como posa libros, claro. Como vas a necesitar peso para que no se desarmen, te aconsejo que metas un pedruzco dentro de la caja, no se vera de todas formas!!...
      SI te atreves a hacer este proyecto, mandame una foto!
      Suerte.

  7. Hi Victoria ! Today I feel into your world. I love creating stuff out of nothing all my life ! I'm enjoying reading your blog today. I live in Sacramento California and don't really know anyone that enjoys what we do. I have somethings around my apt. that need another life so bad that I'm trying to find them a purpose. I'm trying not to buy anything and use what I have but with these things I'm having a hard time. You are really talented and will follow you , hopefully for a long time. Maybe I can send a picture and see what you think sometime ! Debra

  8. I have a suitcase that I think I want to paint but I'm not sure. I would like to put lace on it and mod podge with some tissue paper inside I think . It's not really nice inside. The the medal is not great either. Have you ever done one ? I need help ! Lol and I love what you do. What would you do ?

    1. Hi Debra!! Thanks for coming by. I have done a suitcase but not in the way you're describing... I just painted the exterior in white and stencil a piece of lace over it so it would have a pretty surface, I then placed over a small side table to add height and drama and now it seats in my basement studio bringing an unless corner into life with a nostalgic kinda feel... I'll look for a way to send you a picture so you can see it.
      I guess what you do with your suitcase should be based on what the use for the final product will be, is it going to be a decorative item or is it going to be functional like mine is??...
      For decorative purposes, I would just try something more daring, I love the decoupage idea with lace or paper or both and its really easy to do but make sure your suitcase is prepared to receive the mod podge (clean and free of debris) and make sure you seal it well to protect it from dust.
      The inside of the suitcase, on the other hand, sounds a bit more challenging but if you want to add even more interest to this project I would recommend re-lining it with a nice fabric and hot glue.
      I hope you actually do this project and if you do, please send me a pic to my email; muchocraftsblog@gmail.com
      Thanks and good luck!!
