I want a cheese, please. (Paula Izzo)

Humm… I don’t know what is going on with me… I was ultra happy and now I feel without energy, I am not grumpy or anything like that, I just feel tired…I thought about going for a walk, but the Florida sun made me reconsider. Then I thought! Well!!!… Florida… The pool!!... na, I don’t feel like getting wet… puff!!! What is wrong with me??!!!
Yesterday was a great day, I had a good night sleep… but still, no energy… I hope I am not coming down with something.
Because today is such a lazy day… I decided to let this post be up to StumbleUpon! Hahaha yeah, let others do the spying and researching! click, click, click until I found this:

It immediately evoked crafter lust on my part: I love it! I want it! I need it!!!

So I did a little exploring and found this about the maker: Her name is Paula Izzo, she is a set designer and of course an illustrator and doll maker, she lives in São Paulo, Brazil and the part of her work that I loved is called
MondoPanno... that is all I know… because I cannot understand Portuguese… I once travel did to Brazil but after a whole month there the only thing I actually learned how to say was: Eu quero um queijo, por favor (the sell this amazing grilled cheese sticks on the beach!! It was the only thing I NEEDED!!)

Here are some more of her things:

Hopefully you might understand a little more Portuguese than me, or you can still look around and love her work, no specific language needed there.
Here is her blog (HERE)
Her portfolio (HERE)
Her Flickr Photostream (HERE)
MondoPanno's Web Site (HERE)

By the way the little I do understand or at least assume is that she has on online shop, but!! If you want something from her, you can send her a mail to (I am sure she will understand some English or Spanish).


  1. Thank you so much for the nice words.
    I really enjoy making someone day better with my work.
    If someday you come back to Brasil, I'll show you a bunch of useful words! :)

  2. Wow!!! thanks for the comment! It would be a dream to go back to Brazil! I really think is one of the MOST beautiful countries in the world.
    And you are welcome, you work deserves all the nice words in my vocabulary!
