Craft: Beaded work

Found an old box of beads on my window sill. I decided to use them to make bookmarks and bracelets. It took longer for me to make them then I expected, but I enjoy the moment thinking which combination of beads will be the best.

Since green is my favourite colour and I’m reading LotR (which is also green), I decided to go with this colour to match the book.

A sudden thought of making a bookmark convertable into a bracelet, and this became the result

And a pink one just for fun

This is the one I love most among all. Always have been thinking about how to use the plastic beads I have. It doesn’t look good if the whole bracelet is made of the plastic ones, and so I mixed the glass one with them. I am pretty happy with the result!

Miniature: Dessert Party

I have made quite a few projects during summer which I’d like to share them with you : ) Please leave your thoughts and comments! They are much appreciated.

A few cakes I made, inspired from 2 cookbooks I borrowed from the library. Cutlery art is really a hard subject to me, but I’m glad that a learned a little bit more about it now.

I love to use cookbooks as references while creating, the way the food are garnished and photographed are so pretty and elegant. When the creativity strikes I’d start brainstorming how I’d like to make my minis with a style I feel comfortable with. I always don’t follow what I’ve sketched though and the results are always very different. But as long as they look all right I guess it’s okay :p
