Dear Readers and Followers,
today the blog entry is written by a guestblogger – Irene’s daughter
Creativity kind of runs in our family. We are from a line of women creating all sorts of fun projects. Irene is making jewelry, clothes, she knits some amazing scarfs (thanks, mama) – and she makes rolls so good that a daughter would go to Spain to get one. Meanwhile Granma is the queen of knitting, and no one could make as beautiful dresses out of pearls (!) for small mannequin dolls as Great Granma could. Me? Well, I am not mastering any of my creative talents yet, but I guess that it’s because I seek too many adventures at one time.
A little about me: I left to live in South Germany, where you find the most romantic towns and old, beautiful buildings. In other words I’m surrounding myself by architecture looking like this:
The German Christmas markets are famous all over the world for their wonderful atmosphere – and for their Glühwein (sweet, spicy, warm red wine). The season for these markets will start in just a couple of days, and then I’ll go there myself to pick up new inspiration.
Just like my mom, I also spend a lot of time on various hobbies. One day I might decide to start learning about how to make Japanese origami, and the next day I decide to sew a monster for a friend’s baby. And the day after I find out that there’s an amazing cake called Red Velvet Cheesecake that I have to try making (any excuse for baking is always welcome). Lately I am reading about how to brew beer. And guestblogging.
Irene on the other hand is putting a lot of time and effort into creating her beautiful jewelry. And she’s pretty good at it. She’s spending a long time on thinking about projects, letting the right ideas come to her. It can take a lot patience to make this. She has made it to more than a 100 followers already, which I find pretty impressive. Go mom!
Compliment them with the classic black dress, and a girl’s night out just started with lots of style!
My mom loves gemstones – where I often choose the simplicity of the metal – and wear something like these sweet angels:
But we all have our preferences
If you like these jewelry, and if you are in lack of good ideas what to give for Christmas, you should pay a visit to her store on Etsy:
Cyberhugs and best wishes to all of you – and wishes that you’re also living out your dreams, whatever they might be!
