Been working on the Black Pearl pirate necklace, will post pics when it's done.
As it's been usual lately (and that's ruining my finances) saturday is S.E.X. day. Before I shock some, S.E.X. stands for Stash Enhancement eX perience. Bought 2 pieces of gorgeous fabric for projects that are still hidden somewhere in my mind. I bought them thinking of handbags, but...I don't know ,they'll be used when I'm ready, no rush.
Right, about the fabrics: the first one is a double-face orange damask which for my surprise wasn't as hard to find and expensive as I expected. Really liked this one but I had the black with cream background on my head all the time. This one I couldn't find, but I'm happy with what I got.
The second one is my most amazing finding (c'mon I rarely can find what I need for my handcraft purposes here, I have to celebrate when I do!!). I'm not sure about how is it officially called but I named it Chinese Toile de Jour. I'm crazy about all chinese stuff and toile de jour, there couldn't be better combination, c'mon, it was made for me!!
Found yesterday this cool website where they sell handcrafted items. When you click on an item it leads you to the artist/shop own site. Got a lot of inspiration from there :-). By the way another inspiring source are the etsy shops, it's amazing how you can find pretty much whatever you look for, just type on the search box and you will find items from cute to vintage, from Alice in Wonderland to Elvis Presley and of course the mix of it all. As I've been hanging around these sites I've been feeling like trying new kinds of handcraft/art such as jewelry making with polymer clay and vintage bags. I'll post pictures of my recently finished projects soon (it's night here and the light is not too good for taking pictures).
