I got horrible news last week which made me go on a hiatus. This news affects my life deeply and it took me a week to get over the first shock. I was too devastated to even think about crafting or drawing... and now I feel like I need the time to mourn... for myself and also to show respect.

I don't know how long I can go without...but I just don't want to create something and regret it afterwards.

Other than that I'm fine, I guess. I really don't know where I picked up so much positive energy ...maybe I just don't want to give up and keep believing in good.

pink bunny and altered match box

It's been months since I've done a mini-amigurumi and also months since I last did an altered match box.

Since I love pink bunnies I did this little fellow and a carrot to keep it happy ^^

But it also needs a place to live, so I made a little room in a match box. I made the striped and checkboard pattern, printed it and simply glued it on. I added a bit of black water color to give it a used look. The box itself is covered in black jeans fabric and a little lace at the bottom.

The furniture is made out of normal paper covered in acrylic lacquer. The table is cardstock and wire for the legs.

Like (nearly) always I didn't spend a cent making this =)

Thanks for looking!

Wire Tree of Life pendant

Ever since I saw these at I wanted to make one, too.

I think it isn't too bad for the first try. It would have been easier with thinner wire though. It was really hard to pull it tight.

crochet DS case

Since I joined the 50 projects in 2012 craftalong at I looked through my photos yesterday to see what I've managed to draw, craft and create in 2011 and I have to say, I got a bit disapointed because it really isn't a lot. Most of it were Inchies and ATCs and nothing really all that "big" or "creative".
Well, I think I'm to strict with myself again because I'm new to this (I made my first ATC ever in June '11 !!) and compared to the years before I got A LOT done and I'm glad I'm back to drawing and painting.
It can only get better (okay..this is not true, but it sounds good) and so far the craftalong keeps me motivated and I really want to reach the goal of 50 projects! And I also want to keep doing artwork and maybe, maybe I can fullfill the dream of mine and do a comic.

But enough ranting! I finished this DS case the other day. It was really, really simple and fast to lay in my yarn box for over half a year before I picked it up again and added the flower and button.

Kitty was trying to steal it...

The first ATCs of the year

Two were "left-overs" from last year I finished up. The ones with the cats didn't turn out as good as I wanted to...I got a bit crazy with slapping more and more color on ^^;
Sorry for the pad photos, I took them fast before sending the cards away. They have a good home now =D

I'm actually behind with posting stuff...It hasn't been like this for a long time.
