Chameleon: made by my daughter 7 years old.


You don't need any previus knowledge, in fact it is a great opportunity to share time with KIDS making this project together, I truly recommend it!

Garland: made by my son 4 years old  (with help edging the letters)


You will learn how to make simple forms first, and the combination of them will give you pretty designs and also objects.

I encoraurage you to try it!

Colo Alonso

Industrial Designer + Wife + Mother

My name is Daniela Alonso, but my friends call me Colo because of my hair color.

My studies of Industrial Design allow me to work in Argentina, Italy and Spain in technical design. But in my spare time I develop my artistic flair, creating my own candles, restouring furniture with decoupage, making origami, knitying, sewing, backing muffins etc...most of these activities I make them with my two kids (8 and 4 years old). They just love to make craft-work as much us me.

Everything I make has my personal touch and a piece of my essence. Thats the way I take care of my family and people around, why not to share it with the rest of the world?

I have actually two classes published about QUILLING and one about DECOUPAGE, TORTILLA DE PATATA and what will be next? ta ta ta tan....
