This blog was born almost 3 years ago.  I love it here actually. I've enjoyed the people I've met because of it, and also the reason it gives me every day for placing my energy, thoughts and ideas out there. 

I loved doing crafts ever since I can remember, and I've also been a constant journal keeper throughout most of my life, which is not that different from keeping a blog. 

What you'll find here: Crafts (mostly paper), embroideries (mostly words), our travel adventures (as a family), some street art, a crafty series that I enjoy (truly so much, I wish I could do it more often), some lovely stores that call my attention (sometimes they even call my name), and other random niceness that I encounter. 

My name is Giovannella ( a very weird, old, long, Italian name), but I've shorten it to (GIOVA), something I don't even know what it means (I just like it, and also I don't have to spell it a million times).

I was born in Colombia. Now I live in Amsterdam with my husband and our 2 boys (if I told you how cool, crazy and amazing they are you wouldn't believe me, so I won't tell you)!

Some random things about me - I love lists by the way...

i have lots of; scissors, all things related to paper, magazines, boxes and books.

i like to: crochet, embroider words, write letters, and look out from windows.

i dislike: swings, airplanes and people standing in front of elevator doors.

i like to eat: pandebonos, arepas, pancakes, and rice with scrambled eggs, but not all at the same time!

my favorite quote is: "I wish to say what I think and feel today, with the proviso that tomorrow perhaps I shall contradict it all." _Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Hoping you like it here as much as I do!!
