New shape

27 Jun

This is the new shape of a former bracelet.

A friend asked me to turn  her broken bracelet, which incidentally I purchased for her as birthday present about ten years ago, into a necklace.
I think it was a beautiful bracelet, but I am not sure  about it as a necklace….
This is the result…
I am not completely satisfied with it, but  there weren’t too many beads and I had to do with what I had. 😉

Swap!

10 Jun

Some time ago my extremely kind and talented friend Giorgia made me this beautiful Totoro, which is a kind of Totem to me. 😄
So, I straightaway wanted to reciprocate her kindness but it took me quite a while to decide how to. In the end I decided for a purse with a handstitched portrait of her lovely four-legged nephew mr Mambo Puppy.
Swaps make me happy! 💗

The Scratcher

3 Jun

Last Friday my TV set decided it has been used enough (barely 3 Years!!!) and broke down. 😦
Of course the warranty had expired so, what to do with the old cardboard packaging (that you are obliged to keep in order to eventually return the damaged TV)?
Well, I saw a tutorial for a cat scratch pad on Nifty and I gave it a try….

My brother’s kitty, Pimpi, seems to enjoy it, despite she hasn’t already found out exactly how to use it! 😀
