Interviews

Are you an artist? or a blogger? do you own an Etsy shop? Then you might want to read this post! :)

If you have been following my blog since it started, then you know I interviewed a couple of artists: Ma’at Silk & POPJewelryStudio. One of my objectives for this blog was to interview people once or twice a month to make it a little bit more fun for the reader and present some cool stuff different from Anita’s Gatos.

It seemed like this objective was going good but then I felt like it was getting a little harder for me to find people that wanted to be interviewed, especially because I didn’t have an Instagram account, or Facebook or twitter where I could ask people or even meet other artists. Now I feel like this has changed, yay! I’ve met and found so many cool people and things on social media and I would love to show you by interviewing them!

So, if you fall into one of these categories DO e-mail me! 

-Artist of ANY kind {Painter, sculptor, jewelry maker, photographer, dancer, actor/actress, singer, writer………}

-Blogger

-Etsy shop owner

-Fashion enthusiast

-If you own a collection of some sort {Insects, Anita’s Gatos figurines!….}

-If you have something to announce {This category is inspired by people that I’ve met on Instagram that are hosting adoption auctions and are in need of donations, so if you’re faced with a similar situation, I would love to have you on my blog:) }

*I’m sure I will keep coming up with ideas for categories so keep checking this post for updates :)

Next steps:

-E-mail me! anitasgatos@gmail.com

-I will pick one person each month {or two depending on how many people are interested}

-I will try to make the interviews relevant to my interests and what I love and admire.

Do contact me if you have any questions! :)

Dallas Snapshots

After spending a week in Mexico, we crossed the border to El Paso and drove to Dallas. We had been planning this trip for a while now and we were super excited about it! There was only one reason why we wanted to visit the DFW area: The Village Church. I don’t have digital pictures of our days at church… all of them were taken with my instax! But here are some snapshots the road, downtown Dallas, and the Fort Worth botanical garden. Because, you know… I have to go to all the botanical gardens ever!! :D

1 2 3 4

1.- Mini Stonehenge in Odessa, Tx

2.- Giant Eye sculpture in downtown Dallas made by artist Tony Tasset. I obviously loved it!

3.- Some kind of desolate parking downtown.

4.- Japanesse garden in the Fort Worth botanical gardens.

I will be posting more Dallas pictures featuring my figures on Instagram so follow along! :)
