A few days ago on my Facebook fanpage I mentioned my challenge connected with beaded rope. There were two scenarios how all of this could end, one me deafiting the bead crochet and the other. me being defeated by bead crochet:) Ona has to develop and get to know new techniques, right? Do you want to know how the fight finished and what kind of experiences I’ve learnt? Read more!
I’m just thinking, spring is coming, so it is a high time to make something fresh and full of colours. I have even an idea!. What can be more associated with spring than flowers, so it is settled, flower pendant it is. It’ will be like a first snowdrop, a spark of hope for the better tomorrow – I know it sounds pompously, but go gentle on me, I’m trying to overcome winter lethargy and apathy 🙂
No, I don’t have Monday in mind, not even the day when you don’t want to do a thing, because the weather is terrible. I’m talking about a day when you have planned to do a new project, you are thinking about the colours, you are getting more and more excited and you can’t wait until you will find a moment to start creating.
When I look through the window and see the weather outside, there is no way somebody could force me to do anything. It is grey, dull and gloomily,on top of it all, it’s pouring. I would jump to bed, put a duvet over my head and ask somebody to wake me up in July – as in Monika’s Brodka song 🙂 ( a great piece of music, definitely worth recommending).
We like it when everything goes according to plan, don’t we? However, in reality, in most cases, we come across many obstacles, problems so the initial plan has to be changed or adjusted. And it’s all fine as long as we achieve, more or less, what we wanted, but … if we don’t, there is the anger, the frustration of wasting the precious time and making all of those efforts for nothing…(at least in my case, that’s the way it is). We always have those big plans, we imagine the results, but at the end of it all, the outcome is nothing what we had in mind…
Have you noticed that there is a lot of jewelry made in a form of owl? You can buy owl pendants, necklaces, rings, earings and many more. There are pillows, toys, bags, charms, t-shirts, blouses, wallpapers…almost like a trend in fashion.
A box of safety pins in my closet…lying around all those years…useless……oh! I wish…!:/ the hardest thing in making today’s necklace was buying the package of safety pins, can you imagine!? I couldn’t … Wandering around from shop to shop, the only thing I noticed was that they were neither in numbers I wanted nor at the price I thought pins should be, however I found them in the end. What a relief!
