Today is the day


I have three words for you:




Summer plans have been set in concrete after I spent most of last night and a lot of today checking for the cheapest prices, the best routes, dates, budget and definitely paranoid about not making any mistake. That’s the problem when you have multiple destinations and multiple tabs on your navigator. Something is bound to go wrong if you’re as absent-minded as me. Thus, the paranoia. But, Berlin is calling, Paris, je t’aime and summer, I cannot wait for you.

And speaking of not being able to wait, here is something I’ve been holding my breath for:

My virtual window display

The digital doors are open and more of my jewelry will soon be on display. A photo shoot awaits me tomorrow, as does updating and general sorting out of the shop. I simply cannot wait to watch this project come to full fruition.

This day has been absolutely plain bananas: plans for travel have been confirmed, as has my plan to open a shop. It really does feel that the world is my oyster today, and all it took was the persistent shifting through multiple tabs on my Safari and a little creativity.

Go ahead and mess with me


I’ve made a mess and I’m happy about it.

Don't move anything!

Don't move anything!

I’m back to walking around with beads in my hands, and losing sleep over new design ideas. It finally feels like my life is resuming those faint hues of routine I allow and that gives me a sense of comfort. The new task is to take photos of the new things I’ve made, which I’ve attempted today with the new big tripod my boyfriend bought. Just as I secured the camera and took a testing photo, the camera battery died. Lesson learned: No fancy photo shooting before checking the basics.

In a few days, there will be another small, welcome disruption to the routine in the form of a getaway to Cyprus. It will only be for a week and it will bring me one step closer to opening my Etsy shop since I’ll be getting my cards printed. Finally!

I’m quite looking forward to a dose of something familiar. As much as I like to deny it, I do miss it sometimes. But for now, back to the mess!
