Bohemian Crochet Dream Catcher

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!

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,

Hello Spring!

violets

Being a child of Spring, to celebrate this beautiful season here on this blog is a must… and such a pleasure! Sooooo…. here’s a few things that filled my heart with joy the past few days… Enjoy! 🙂

 


 Spring
 Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins 

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring –
 When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
 Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
 Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
 The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
 The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
 The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
 With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this joy?
 A strain of the earth’s sweet being in the beginning
 In Eden garden. – Have, get, before it cloy,
 Before it cloud, Christ, lord, and sour with sinning,
 Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
 Most, O maid’s child, thy choice and worthy the winning.

(Source: Gerard Manley Hopkins: Poems and Prose)

Livin’ La Vida Boho

resin-pendants

Hi friends. How are you doing?

Over here, in my world, I am living ‘la vida boho’ (haha).

I am not really sure why and how it happened to me, but for some reason I realized that the so called bohemian style is what i want to dive into these days. So I went in, head first.

As I realized, the ocean of boho style is incredibly deep and beautiful… and mesmerizing… and soul-nourishing… and energy recharging. Oh the colors, the warmth, the cheerfulness, the richness of the textures, the comfort it brings… everything about it appeals to me IMMENSELY. Right now I am in the state where I just want to ‘bohemian-ize’ everything around me… (in case you come near, you’ve been warned)… . To outline the vision, I might as well call this year THE YEAR OF BOHO, building colorful happy shields whenever and wherever possible.

Anyways, learning how to channel this style, I have a few projects in works these days. I cannot wait to show them to you once they are fully finished (they even involve pictures I made… I know… what?). Until then, I thought I could just introduce to you a few parts of my fast growing boho collection…

 
 

charm-mix

These are just a few of my favorites. Seeing this, my heart is singing happy songs!

 
 

crochet-and-golden-beads

Somewhere along the way I got this idea of placing crocheted items on the pictures I make. And that idea has put me in a state of complete and utter THRILL :).

Well, yes, I realized that I had been searching for a different way to display my crocheted pieces for such a long time but did not really know how… and now I found the way. Yippee! The possibilities are endless and I see this as a very long and amazing journey for me. Will you join me? 🙂

 
 

decoupage-painting

To display my crocheted items, I’ve made a few backgrounds – painted and decoupaged. The background above is a decoupage (paper cutouts glued onto paper). This was my first try at this craft and I loved it!!! So amazing and relaxing!

 
 

crochet-decoupage

Then the crocheted pieces and some charms join the game and the picture will soon be ready for you to see (stay tuned).

 
 

metal-charms

Speaking of charms… Hello my darling ones!! 🙂 You complete my life!

 
 

crochet-and-painting

This is a sneak peek of my other project. There are feathers and some really powerful words involved – this picture has a mission. Soon all will be revealed in more detail.

 
 

 colorful-feather-on-a-painting

Here’s a detail of the corner, I am still playing with different ideas and placements before it’s really finished. I was thinking – can you ever go over the top in the bohemian style? 🙂

Well, all in all, this is just the game that I need now. Gimme those embellishments!!! 🙂

 
 

charms

I hope you enjoyed this little boho extravaganza. Will be back with more soon!

Take care!

With lots of love,

Crochet Guardian Archangels

crochet archangels

Hi dear friends!

I hope you are doing fine and that life is treating you well.

Today I have some sweet news for you – my crochet angels have been finished and are ready to meet you…

The long story short, I have been making crochet guardian angels recently. And not just any angels – they are archangels. The archangels of four directions – Uriel, Raphael, Gabriel and Michael. And they are here to protect.

 
 

crochet archangels

These four wonderful beings are believed to send help and protection if imagined or placed in four corners surrounding the space you wish to protect.

Uriel is the Guardian of North, Raphael of East, Gabriel of West and Michael of South.

The angels are believed to prevent our Light from being depleted or diminished and protect us from all harm and lower vibrational forces and energies.

They are now protecting my home and I made some more to fly to those of you who wish to welcome them in their homes too.

Love these so much.

I could not resist and embellished them with some glitter. Yay!

I created three different packages, depending on the colors of the angels.

The first package includes a pink, green, violet and blue angel. You can find it here.

The second package has a pink, yellow, violet and blue angel. You can find it here.
