Please don't be careful

I'll explain right away what I mean.A couple of days ago I wanted to make a DIY post for you,in which I would show you how to make a simple but funny,handmade necklace.I was excited for posting something useful for the first time since I created this poor blog of mine.But,in the end,I came up with an unexpecting result:

Yeah!I baked them in 200oC instead of 180oC.That's like they look like sh**!I forgot about them while I was super-excited drawing in photoshop.Of corse,the whole house was smelling awful for a couple of hours and smoke was going out of the oven before I realized what I just did!After yelling at my self (yeah,I have a divided personality!),I realized it's not a big deal.I would make a new one!

So,the purpose of this post from showing you how to make a necklace from cernit(aka fimo,a plasteline-like material),ended up being just a reminder that we shouldn't worry too much for the small stuff!If you're still interested in giving a try on this DIY project you can follow these baking instructions,just in case!

Oh!And I almost forgot!Here's what I was drawing on photoshop:

It's based on a character from a comic,my friend Elv gave me some days ago.

I'll leave you with a Bob Marley song,to set you more in the mood!


Have a nice day!

Today I discovered a whole new paradise.I went up to our terrace.It was magical.I could see the sky,the city,the lights.The wind was blowing and I was feeling free.I was alone.But I wasn't feeling lonely.

And then you came to my mind.

And all the things we planned,but we never found the chance to do.

I never finished this CD I promised to you.

I never slept at your home.

We never went swimming just the two of us.

We never talked on the phone all night long.

I never brought you up here,to see the gorgeous view.

These little things come to my mind moments like these.Or when I see your stuff everywhere in my room.Or at the darkest hour of the day,deep under my blankets.

And I'm cold up here.But I'm happy.

The Sewing Machine and me

Hehe.Guess what!It's time to show you what you've been longing for!The pieces of art I created with my new sewing machine!You can call her "Efterpi".I don't know what's wrong with me and I give names to STUFF.It's cause I'm more emotionally connected with them I guess.Ok,I think I bragged enough for today!They're not something special,but to tell you the truth I'm a bit proud of myself.xD

I had next to no experience with that stuff and da-da-daa!I learnt some basic techniques!Yeah,yeah I said I'm gonna stop bragging!So here they are:
