Sticker Diary {my password to intuitive worlds}

A few months ago I started a Sticker Diary in a petit moleskine I bought from fabulous artist Danny Brito.

I just felt like revealing a few pages.

Hidden addenda {Part I}

So it was London.
Long walks. Big red buses. Busy colorful markets. No rain. People, many people and their mysterious words. A craft fair. Lots of painful steps but who remembers those now. Tasty Korean and Japanese food. Our Italian room neighbors. Busy streets with busy people who keep saying sorry. Any amount of books. The serious yet playful museum atmosphere. Interminable tube tunnels. London is a fun friend to be with.
London is also a frightening one. Close your eyes once and it swallows you completely.
London can feel like home too, for 5 days.
It calls me back year after year but London is not my home.
You know the saying "home is where your heart is." I decided. London can have my tourist heart, completely for now but it will most probably have to share it later.

London trip

Everything is about London.
Well not quite but the next five days are going to be.
We are leaving tomorrow morning, going to visit Renegade Craft Fair London.
I'm so curious about it!!!
Happy to meet the artists and to, once again, explore London. There are still a lot of places I haven't seen yet.
I cannot wait to see myself thrown in the middle of the hectic streets of London.
We will be back on the 13th October.
Talk to you soon.

Couple necklaces *커플목걸이*

Getting into Korean culture.
Our personalized couple necklaces are finally here.
Many thanks to Specially for U.
감사합니다 비아 씨!
목걸이를 너무 좋아해요!

Our word is 웃어봐.
Google translates it as "lighten up" but I like to think of it as "try to laugh".
Going to wear it everyday.
To cure myself from pessimism.

How does your garden grow?

First of October.
I am longing for a soft weekend. Soft light. Soft thread. I have been crocheting for the last two days. Nothing big, golden yellow actually. I am not done yet, I might show you. Meanwhile, my fingers are sore. It's not my first time but who said crocheting is an easy thing to do?

I have been in a confused state of mind. I want to do so much at once that I end up doing nothing. I want to buy a sewing machine, I want to learn how to embroider and I want to learn how to design patterns for miniature crocheting, plus there is my passion for felt. Ahh, this spiderweb!!! How do you stay organized? I am really curious. How do you do it? I am a mess, everything has to come first.

The calm before the storm. Fools me every single time.
