Hello new week!

Do Mondays make you happy? I was always wondering what is the best way to start a week. Do you know some kind of recipe? Can you cook it? Mmmm, I can feel the smell already! Mondays should smell like hot chocolate and... hot chocolate again. Let's use Mr. Wonka's elevator to get there! Hey Charlie, can you hear me?

If you ask me, my Mondays should look like this:

- wake up early (I hate waking up late on Mondays, it feels like sleeping the whole week on a sole night)
- wear comfortable shoes
- ride a horse
- start reading a new book
- buy a house
- plant a tree
- eat Japanese food (yummy!)
- start learning a foreign language (I'm planning to start learning Korean on one lucky Monday of July)
- get a new haircut
- make a promise
- go on a diet? (on a second thought, neh!)
- get a tatoo (yep, this sounds good to me)
- shop for vintage items
- buy an umbrella
- learn a poem
- turn my phone off
- go swimming
- go on a picnic
- blow soap bubbles
What is your trick for a fun Monday? Let's be friends, share it with me!

Meet the Princesses

I was finally able to finish part of my work in progress. It took me more than I expected but as I love to invent new girls I had an enchanting time spent with them. Plenty of ideas are playing in my mind right now so I'm up for more. Yay. Can't wait!
So here they are:

Strawberry Princess

Acorn Princess

Mushroom Princess

You can find them in my etsy shop :D
Happy weekend!

I started my day with a pile of breakfast and one of felt but still my time flew faster than it usually does. I wanted to do much more sewing that I was able to do, I guess I was tricked today, he he.

My work in progress keeps my hands busy and my mind in a fantasy land, I so feel like singing.

Pop girls

Illustrations are such visual beauties and such a big weakness of mine that I cannot ignore them, never, so I had to share what I found today. Nico, a Japanese illustrator brought a wide smile on my face on this rainy day (no wonder her name is a meaning of "smile" in Japanese).

Overly enthusiast with my discovery, Nico has my heart now.

Coffee House anyone?

Nice to meet you Coffee House! Yes, you are LOVED.
Ok, so I've been watching 6 episodes of Coffee House and WOW, I love every detail in this drama. The story is engaging, the most inventive drama I've watched so far!
I've seen some of the kdrama cliches (if you are a kdrama enthusiast, you know what I talk about :P) twisted in such a way that I can't stop wanting for more, it makes the story funny and real, the antidote that works for me to like the characters.
Postponed for three weeks because of the World Cup football championship, I'm more eager to watch the next episodes but still there is nothing I can do but wait. Meanwhile I'll be drawing some new girls for my etsy shop, while picking up my rubber I found some new ideas under my desk.
Talk to you soon.

Talking ceramics

Ceramics weren't on my interests list until I stumbled upon these fantastic living arms. The way they crave for touches is astonishing, I sense a strong feeling of loneliness in their petrified movements. Created in a young studio in Barcelona, they are amazing pieces of useable art.

This one is definitely my favourite, a mug that hugs my face while drinking, warmly showing affection, how cool is that?

You can find them here:

Let's keep in touch, always!

Into neck "lace"

I've come to the conclusion that felt is unstoppable that is why he joined me for some "neck-laces".

Plus my addiction to hedgies has no end but I pretty much enjoy my circle, is so round!

Feeling like a shadow sometimes? No? Monochromatic worlds work fine for me though.

Jewels are fun to invent don't you think so?
