Cold

I've been having troubles with my heating this week.. and I was cold.
I understand the luxury we all have. And when people tell about not having enough money, not having enough stuff.. I know we're all very customised to that luxury.
Being warm in winter, having freshness during summer.. that is the luxury.
I'm feeling very modest about those things right now.
And let me tell you something..
We don't have nothing to complain about!



P.S.: (I'm making a softie with big green eyes and red cheeks)

It's allright to be mean


Here's my I'm just listening to Sinatra and having a Dirty Martini illustration.


Lots happened, but all turned out right.. *phew* Like always I turned out to be more like a fox then a cat or dog. It's a lot like science. Human behavior I mean..



I've liked The Kills for some time now, and this new one is great!

What it feels like for a boy (I love Charlotte Gainsbourg)

A very busy week.. that's why I'm a bit overdue with my blogposts.. what it feels like for a boy, in this world..

I love this video, it's monumental. There's alot to tell about Madonna, but the quintessence (there is a secret fifth sense quinta essentia) is to remember to live thru the dream.. and like Anaïs Nin thought me, 'there's no sense without the sensitivity'



I've made two new dolls this week. I'll introduce you to the first today, and the second tomorrow.

Here's Miss Nadine Zipulla Grenadine :


Miss Zipulla's close up


She likes listening to Christina Aguilera's Mercy on Me, She's kinda sensitive for drama.


And she likes books and magazines, they give support.

I've made three necklaces this week too :


Ceramic and iron. 'A tickle for the senses' necklace made with glazed Delfts Blue ceramic pearls and iron filigrane pearls.


connected with a small 'rocailles' pearls.


perfect shades of pale blue


And a sweet finishing.

Another necklace, from my Electro Pastel series:



Made with real Tiger Eye natural pearls.




It's all about the pale pastel and the bright lemon yellow

And a third one, with very big massive heave pearls:


Very heavy and big pearls, wood, iron and cotton string.

And I've crochet a little bag for my PSP this week too, with the most amazing cottonwool. And a vintage fifties button to top the cake..


Crochet little PSP bag..


100% cotton, no animals harmed!


a lovely vintage fifties button in cool green

I've ordered some cool stuff from Reprodepot.com.

Wizard of Oz fabric, copywrighted by Judy Garland, real collectors dope! French cuisine fabric, japanese import.
And some ribbons..


And this ever soooo cool little button with sad kitty..


Yesterday there was a party at the Crayon here in Ostend, had lots of fun.. and a bit wasted.. so I'm gonna chill and go to bed early.. I'll just play a little Grand Theft Vice City on my PSP when I'm under the blankets..

Hello New Me!

First of all, it was a hectic week. But a very exciting and fun one!

I'm listening to the new Paul McCartney album 'Memory Almost Full", I soo love the tittle of this album. I guess growing into a full grown man, and finally growing into an old man, makes your memory almost full. Just like my computer..

I'm very excited about the interview for Craftypod with Diane Gilleland. We've settled a date, and it's gonna be next Thursday at 3.00 PM, which means with the seven hours time difference she'll call me around 8 AM Pacific time. I have the question in advance, so I can prepare myself for it. It's gonna great!

At my work in the shop we've had a little makeover, and to celebrate that we've had a Pink Day - Hello New Me!
Here are some pictures:

I did a demonstration/workshop that day (we've sold some knitting machines, which is great!)

Everything had to be pink that day, so I chose some different kinds of pink wool to use for the demonstration.

I'm also hooked on Loco Roco, the amazingly surrealistic game for my PSP.. It's so funny, so freaky, so adorable!

Watch this! And do try it! It's crazy!

This is the official trailer from Sony PSP Roco Loco!

A close up from a fat Loco, you can devide the big Loco into all little loco's.. it's hilarious!

Oh no! The little Loco's are being washed away by some surreal wind!

Here's a little something that made me forget about all the shit I'm dealing with this week..

Miss Amy Sedaris Rocks!

And remember:
No pain, no glory!
