T stands for Beauty

Hello my T-Friends!

I am a bit late today. I hope you are well. Last week my friends and I went to a protest against the new labor and social security reforms. Thousands and thousands people were there. It ended in a clash with the police. 19 capitals protested too. Some photos below:






  My friends and I. We work together at the same school.
I am between the two ladies.

 I hope those reforms never happen. Otherwise  we will spend our life working and retire at almost 70. Neo-liberalism destroys everything. It enslaves people. Although I was born during dictatorship, my father taught me to have wings and to think big. So if I can fight, I will.

I am glad art can help me to overcome my fears. I created the page below  for Color Me Positive 2017.
 Hope you have a magical week, full of positive vibe. Don't forget to visit Elizabeth and join T stands for Tuesday.

 Hugs, 
Karla

T stands for Hope

Hello My T- Friends!

Last week was terribly insane. My furry friend had her second leg amputated. We both suffered because I didn't want her to go through another surgery but it was necessary. She was in pain due to an osteosarcoma. She was discharged last monday after five days of hospitalization. She's well now and today she had her stitches removed. Babi - my furry friend has been teaching me a lot. She has endured pain with immense strenght and resignation. And believe you or not she's now walking on her two legs. Sometimes we see an obstacle and we give up fast. Babi has taught me to be strong and to believe we can everything. She's my heroine. I love her so much. I know I will lose her in the long run but right now she's alive and that is all that matters.

Life does go on, my friends.

Yesterday I had some time so I created a couple of pages for Color Me Positive:


I hope my art can always save me from my limitations as a human being because sometimes I feel my heart is out and that makes me so vulnerable.

Have a magical day and visit Elizabeth!

Hugs, 
Karla

Material Girl

Material Girl

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they're o.k.
If they don't give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can't see the light, that's right
'Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right

'Cause we're living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That's all right with me
If they can't raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie, but
I don't let them play (no way)
Only boys that save their pennies
Make my rainy day

'Cause we're living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Boys may come and boys may go
And that's all right you will see
Experience has made me rich
And now they're after me

'Cause we're living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl
