I have a writing block. For some reason, I get stuck every now and then, not being able to write in English, even though I have so much that I want to share with you. I don’t know how to start a blog post, I don’t know how to express my feelings. And it annoys me. A lot. But, that is the case right now, and all I can do is to try to make a few sentences and post the photos for you to see, and hope for this to go away until my next post.
So, what have I been doing lately? Well, first it was my Birthday on September 18th. I made my self a lovely chocolate cake, and was quite pleased with my first sugar lace decoration ever!
Then I cooked and cooked as we had guests almost every day. Friends, my parents, hubby’s parents, lunch, dinner, breakfast, cooking, baking, oh it was so much fun! Yes, I mean it! It was fun! I love to cook, and with this Autumn atmosphere it feels even better! The weather was mostly sunny these days, a bit cold, leaves are just starting to change color, and that’s the only part of Autumn that I like. That is the time when I feel very homy and all I want to do is cook and bake. Not good for my figure though, I should be avoiding bread and cakes, but, oh dear, it is so hard! I should’ve taken photos of all the food I prepared as I know some of you would love to see how we eat here in Serbia. I promise I’ll start taking the camera with me to the kitchen.
I received a heart warming mail, two gorgeous hand painted cards from Terri, my Internet friend who’s drawings and paintings are gorgeous and a constant inspiration for me.
She was so kind to send me the cards that I loved the most, although I love everything she does, and I’m always jealous because I can’t paint like that. But look at those beauties! I’m going to frame the flower and have it on my bedroom wall, and the tree is going into my diary so that I can always have it with me. Thank you Terri for this wonderful gift!
Speaking of bedroom walls, I’ve decided to do another recycling project, using different sizes of styrofoam (because those were the only pieces I had) and paper from an old book and a music sheet. It started like this:
I glued the papers onto the styrofoam, actually the papers were glued to each other as the styrofoam didn’t want to “accept” the glue, and then when it dried, I painted the whole thing with some white paint watered down a bit, and at the end with shimmery finish. So I got a lovely jewelry holder:
I hope that you can see the papers coming through a bit. Here is the one for my necklaces:
The problem with my walls is that they are made out of concrete. And if I’d want to put something on my wall, I would need a special drilling tool for that, which I don’t have, and to call someone (and pay for it) to come and drill a hole or two every time I want to hang a picture or something else is pain in the… So I glue things on the wall with double sided tape. Good thing with my jewelry holders is that they are light and easy to glue to the wall. I will show you the whole wall once I have all the photos and pictures on it, glued of course. LOL!
Oh, my writing block is subsiding! :))
Anyway, I have some Art Journal pages to show you also, from different journals.
Have a wonderful day!
