Brrr....... it's still winter here in the Netherlands with -6 degrees Celsius of frost during the nights. So.... still great weather to find comfort indoors. I want to create create create and i'm really a busy bee lately when it comes to my crafting splashes! As if it's spring already! In the evening i'm finishing a huge crochet roses afghan, plus i'm planning to make austrian blinds for my whole house! Plenty on my schedule. I also have a huge stack of completed projects to share with you, so hurry hurry with that then.
As I blogged about earlier in this blogpost about a series of hearts I created, I promised to share more of those. So, here is another heart from that series then. Again it has two sides. The front has a pretty vintage angel with inspirational mandate "Open your wings". The backside has the glittery paper mint rose again, like all the hearts in this series have and this side has the text "Surrender". The angels need lots of helpers these days, so I suggest you try to try be an angel as well. So..... open your wings and surrender to where universe wants you to be! Lots of good things need to be done, both small and big. Some do the big stuff, others, like me, work on micro stage. All good work is important. Remember....... no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted....... a great quote from Aesop. So do something good today. Call your grandfather, bring some flowers to your neighbour, give your child an extra compliment, or just smile to everyone you see today. All positive things are good!

Unbelievable! One week flew by so fast again! I just can't beat that pace, but what I am able to do is use my beads instead to beat the time devil lol. So.... somewhere in time I created this turquoise blue memory wire bracelet with silver accents and charms. I hope you like the eyecandy for today!

I hope all is well with you today.
I've been playing with my beadstash again and produced some purplish earrings. It's beginning to look like a jewelry store in my craftroom 😋😊. I really don't have any idea yet of what to do with all my creations. I am not a seller, as selling my art would of course be the first option of what to do with it all, but to be honest....... I am too sensitive for dealing with commerce, plus i don't have the stress management power to handle such. Anyway, until I find the perfect destiny for my artsy splashings I will put them on display in my room and enjoy them myself. I have some really pretty copper metal displays to hang my earrings on. Who knows why i'm creating!? For now it's 'just' as a therapy to me. It releases some of my stress when i'm playing around in my craft room. I bet many of you know what I mean. Crafting is so good for the heart and soul! I couldn't live without. I hope to be able to keep on doing that for the rest of my life.
Anyway...... here are a couple of sets of earrings in purple then. I hope you enjoy this little purple bling collection! Have a wonderful Saturday!
