Hello dear friends!
I am sending you my warm Sunday greetings! May your day be lovely, happy and blessed.
We have been spending our Sunday mostly outside (oh my goodness, the weather has been marvelous over here in the heart of Europe, so INVIGORATING). And I was lucky enough to find me some precious moments and hide myself in my ‘office’ (a.k.a. Happy Room) where I enjoy spending my time hidden behind columns of colorful yarn squares. The bliss!
Things of various crochet kinds have been going on here recently, I have been happily working on a couple of projects and I am eager to share more as soon as there is some significant progress achieved.
For now, sending you looooots of love,
I hope you are doing fine and that life is treating you well.
As usual, the pattern contains a written part and a part called a picture tutorial with many step-by-step pictures to help you along the way.
This is a quick and fun project producing cute ornaments for your home or to give as a gift to your loved ones.
Although my home is now being protected by quite a few of these lovely happy angels, I am really looking for the holidays to place them on my Christmas tree and to gift them to my friends and family.
I wish you Happy Crocheting!
With lots of love,
First of all, Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate it! May it be PEACEFUL and nice!!
And now, the picture… I made this one just recently for my own place, to hang above my baby’s bed, to be more precise. One can never have enough positive energy at home, right?
So yes, once again I dived into what’s so close to my heart – the angels’ realm. As I mentioned in my previous post, I had long been looking for a new way to display my crochet items, and one day – out of nowhere, I got this idea to attach them to pictures, painted or decoupaged. My head has since been buzzing with new ideas, the only thing now I need is TIIIME (but who doesn’t, right?) !!! 🙂
Trying both a slightly new crocheting technique and the technique of decoupage for the first time, I have to say that I am pretty happy how they both turned out. I might describe the crocheting technique in one of my future posts. The decoupaged part has been created by gluing pieces of torn napkins onto a firm paper (I used 1:1 water-glue solution for gluing).
Also, sun-catching elements are kind of my obsession right now and I have happily used them to embellish this picture too – I just looooove meeeee some golden buttons, charms, golden leaves and crystals. Gimme, gimme more…
Just recently I bought a couple of painter’s canvases to try how and if a decoupage works there… I’ll definitely share it with you when more pictures are done…
Oh, and if you are a fan of decoupage or have some experience or advice in that, please do share! I’d love to hear your thoughts…
With lots of love,
It’s a wild thing, I know… 🙂
And I love it!!!!
I am incredibly happy to introduce my newest creation to you today, my sweet Bohemian Crochet Dream Catcher.
It’s a project of love… 🙂
In fact, the hardest thing about this project was naming it… it definitely is a dream catcher… a picture too… a mixed media thing… so, yeah, I think I’ll just call it a dream catcher.
All in all, this project came out of nowhere, I had not planned to make anything like this, but when the image of it appeared in my mind I knew this was it. It needed to be put together.
Step-by-step, in a slow tempo, I kept adding bits and pieces to this picture, savoring every moment, building it layer by layer, attaching this and that, until I was happy with the overall feeling it gave out.
On top of making me incredibly happy while marveling at all its colors and bling, I am proud that this picture also has a mission.
With all its lush colors, shiny stones and Marilyn Monroe’s smile it attracts evil spirits (at least that’s what I decided to believe 🙂 ) and then, when they get nicely tangled in the catcher net, they get a lovely dose of Psalm 23 and some sweet love power coming from the heart charms attached to it.
And the evil just goes sssss… Burnt. Evaporated. Gone. Job done!
Love the embellishments.
A great thing to protect the home… 🙂
Thanks friends for letting me share.
I wonder, do you like to fill your home with items that are supposed to protect or clear the space? What are they?
With lots of love,
