Marie and the Peacock card

Handmade card details of peacock and flowers
Hello world!

I'm still into the blues (and certainly not because of the elections in the USA........ i mean let the upcoming new president first do his job and then judge!👐😎 ) ; but i get distracted and since i'm in the Netherlands it's not even my president, hehe .......... so i'm still into the blues as you can see on my latest creative explosion which is this handmade peacock themed card 😄. Dream of tomorrow and give positive thoughts to this world, that's the least what you and I can do to really start making a difference!

I'm in the mood again for creating all kinds of different things and it makes me so happy to be on some sort of a faster track again when it comes to my passion for making art and jewelry! I have tons of things ready for my camera but time flies so fast and that's the biggest challenge for me. The days run so fast that I can hardly breath, pffff. But I try to come back in a faster pace, I promiss! I hope you are doing well and hope this little blue explosion is making your eyes happy! I made it myself completely from scratch and even decorated the inside of it a bit. I loved making the beaded leaves! So relaxing!

I would love to hear from you so drop a little comment if you like. I always love to hear from you. Celeste....... thank you so much again for your sweet compliments! Somehow Blogger won't give my comment on your comment through the normal way so that's why i'm giving thanks for each and every comment I get from you in this blogpost. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the happiest time of the year!

Silver and blues

Hi there!

I bet today a lot of people are feeling blue due to the outcome of the USA elections!? Well i'm not having the blues today but did make something blue. So..... to adjust to the blues I decided to cheer you up with inspiration of new jewelry creations of silver and blue.

No matter what color I use, I love to create with all colors, but my preference always will go for pink and purple, haha. But alas........ today is blue and silver day so here are the latest earrings I created. It was fun to make earrings again and I feel like i'm the little girl I was before, so that is a good feeling to me! I have lots and lots more to share the upcoming time, so stay tuned in earringland :D I hope this little post will find you well and that your blues will soon go from purple to pink or from cold to warm feelings.

Remember to enjoy today, as tomorrow may never come!

Time for Christmas Happiness

Good Sunday to you!

Just a short post with sharing the first Christmas card I created for this season. Christmas will soon be here. I just cannot understand the whole time concept. My feelings go much slower than the clock wants me to go :D The older I get the harder it is to catch the right pace. The world is spinning in my humble opinion. Everything is so much in a hurry these days and we 'must' do so many things to stay tuned with everything. I'm really struggling with that. Anyway, as long as I still manage to accomplish at least something than i'm not completely lost I guess, hehe. I hope you like my newest Christmas card then. It's quite simple and small this time, but it was fun to create. I love those vintage children images. They do so good in art. don't you think? I hope you feel inspired to start creating your own Christmas art as well. Enjoy today! Tomorrow may never come!

Ring Ring

Hi there, good Sunday to you!

Here I am back within not too much of time, I hope! I've been incredibly creative last week and made tons of earrings and also some cards. I have so much completed artwork to capture with my camera first and then off for sharing the eyecandy here on my blog to bring you more inspiration. In the meantime I am having a lot of pain in my neck, shoulders and arms lately and have had therapy for it which didn't help at all. I ate ibuprofen like candy; that didn't help much either. Off to the homedoctor again and I was referred to the hospital. An EMG still needs to be done within a week to see if there is any nerve damage going on or something. We'll see what's coming from it :w One thing is already sure..... carpal tunnel syndrome is back. :( I've had surgery on both hands in 1998 but never knew that it could come back in full glory. So.... that bothers me a lot lately, but I try not to give up and try to relax here and there in between creating, and foremost stay aware of my attitude. That helps a little bit. I also am trying to avoid stress proactively, which is the biggest challenge for me. I've never had a stressless life nor experienced peace in my life. I simply don't know what it is too be relaxed! Weird huh?! But it's the truth. It's difficult to seek peace when you don't have any reference point of what peace feels like. I've always been in state of war in my life. Hopefully I can find peace one day very soon :) Anyway, back to a bit of color in my life with creativity .............. ring ring here I am with some handmade earrings then. I started making earrings and other jewelry when I was about 12 or 13 years old. I just loved to do that and still do. It's really a neverending creative process when you start to work with beads. There are so many possibilities to choose from when it comes to the designs and materials you can use. I'm like a child in a candystore when I stumble upon a beadstore :D That makes me so happy! By the way.....  I've bought two wonderful copper metal stands to put my earrings on, which you can see in the pictures. It starts to look like a shop in here, haha! Enjoy the day! I'm going to bead it!
