"Feeling proud of my Mexican roots and wishing to raise consciousness regarding Mexico's beautiful endemic animals in danger of extinction, I designed this series of 10 coloring postcards. They are inspired by the multicolored alebrije sculptures of Oaxaca representing magical and fantastical creatures with wings and antennae," explains Alejandra Aceves. This set of postcards includes: a grey wolf, a West Indian manatee, an axolotl fish (Mexican salamander), a red macaw, an armadillo, a tapir, a loggerhead turtle, a pronghorn, a jaguar, and a California Gulf porpoise.

The set of 10 postcards arrives in an acrylic box with information about Aceves' project. Inspired by the illness she lives with, she realized that the symptoms diminished when she concentrated on drawing. Her wish is for others to enjoy being able to relax while coloring her postcards.

"I couldnt resist a face mask with a dog on it."

It is a little harder to breath because it is thicker than my other face masks.

"Incredibly soft and breathable!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the only mask I ve worn so far that doesn t feel like it s smothering me; as seen in the pictures, the fabric points outwards in the nose area, which gives you plenty of freedom to talk, breathe, etc.. I don t even feel the metal strip inside because of how comfortable and natural the contour of the mask is. The material is also very soft and the kitty design makes people of all ages smile!

This was a gift for my sister. We love the adult coloring books, but what to do with the completed project? Postcards are an excellent idea. She says they are beautiful!

Our hats are off to this incredible woman who suffers from debilitating fibromyalgia and still managed to run a marathon! "While I experience extreme pain on a daily basis, I've never let it hold me back. I'm a fervent supporter of female empowerment, and I try to pay it forward by employing other women. I pays fair wages so that they can support themselves and their families.," she says.

Alejandra has won eight awards so far for her talent and artwork, including Guadalajara's Design Week Competition, the 2014 Presea Ocelote, and is looking forward to receiving her next award in November in Argentina.

Even when odds were against Alejandra with no cure for her fibromyalgia diagnosis, she found the strength to change her life for the better and conquer the impossible - running a marathon.

Alejandra uses and continues to hand down traditional techniques to the youth in her workshop who, now carry on her same methods.

Alejandra has built her jewelry workshop with NOVICA and is now able to give work to some incredibly dedicated women.
