Let me show you what I have been doing besides my main activities of sleeping and working lately:
I've made this little gardenbasket with tools, which can hang on the hooks inside the basket. It was the first time that I made something by wickering, and it shows: the thread is too thick and it's far from straight. I should have tried something more easy, I know. I do not like the basket at all. I thought the thread I used would give it a rough, country look, but it's just out of proportion. And what about that stupid handle? I forced myself to finish it, just for the learning process and now I don't know what to do with it. I do love the little scoop, that does meet my need for perfection.
To make myself happy again, I gave myself an easier task: making little perfumebottles out of beads and tiny metal hearts, always fun, always beautiful. To be honest, I do not need any more bottles, I've already made so many of them, more than any vain dollshouse girl could possibly need. But it's just so much fun!
I also have been busy with my Unimat again, being inspired by the things which are made by Birchcraft (http://www.birchcraft.co.uk/). I'm making two keyrings:
This one is 7 cm in lenght. It has been painted blue, and now I want to paint small flowers, bees, butterflies and dragonflies on it. And this is the other one:
Ik ben een dromer, een overdenker, vol creatieve plannen en ideeën. Soms maak ik miniaturen (black cat cottage blog), een andere keer ben ik aan het tekenen, of schilderen, knippen, plakken, schrijven, fotograferen, zagen, boetseren, sculptuur, borduren, solderen,... Als het maar met sprookjes of natuur te maken heeft. Op dit moment ben ik helemaal weg van mijn Maileg knuffeltjes, en daar gaat het Lily & Rosa blog over. Alle foto's zijn en blijven van mij!
