This blog was born a bit more than a year ago. During that year I wrote with my sister. Now it is mostly me. 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 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!!
