Merry 'Xmas

My creative space

Every year I love to make the nativity from recicled items...this year, I've started from cereal and shoes boxes, and some toys from my daughter (trees and animals)....
..then I modelled some items with white clay...
..covered the cardboard with some paper and sealed with cello tape some pasta stars into the sky..(they reflect the light just light real stars!!) ;D
..made a little tridimensional "far away,behind the mountain" little village (with the base of a cereal box)..
..and for the animals to drink, I made a "fountain" with a cookie box ....
That was such a fun to the next days I will carry on with more daughter loves to be able to play with a little village...

My creative space

This week we started slowly to make some Xmas decorations ("snowflakes" chain on the window) and a recicled cereal boxes nativity. Then I also share my studying time with the braided rug I started last week and keep practicing with the crochet needle!

This week I have my daughter at home with flu, so I cannot study. We spend time doing various craft, and I have started to make a rug weaving some old tshirt I've decided to recicle instead of throwing it away.

My creative space

I can't believe how relaxing is to crochet ! I currently don't have time to learn some complicate kind of crocheting, so I go on combining the simple chain, one side to another,leaving holes on purpose to break "boring" lines....I have no idea what it will be once finished..but at least it works great to relax me!

Recicling a shoes box to make something for my daughter to play! ('still don't understand why we bother spending so much on "complicate" toys, if children are always ending up playing with the most inespensive stuff they find around!)

Recicling old projects

And this is the shirt daughters likes pirates (this summer we bought her a inflatable pirate's boat)..recicling a skull I made few years ago and two strings I cut from the bib, to replace it for a elastic one, so she can wear it by herself without having to tie it up. (the string are the same color than the skull)

Since my daughter was born I realize that she was a sort of "time machine" for my emotions.. I was afraid I wouldn' t be a good mother, of not being able to love her enough..and so on..mind you, before getting pregnant I didn't feel anything looking at a baby, while I would melt in presence of a puppy...
Then, after she was born, I discover I can love her(so much!I can't believe now how could I doubt it!), and be (I hope so, certainly I try very hard!) a good mother, and even, now when I see a baby, I feel tenderness...
So I start to think about this change...and realize my fears were a "blockage" I built as a projection of my mum's fears and of something that happened while I was a baby. And i'm sure of this, because of things that happened back then...
Then few days ago, while I was at the library with my daughter I found this book. It's written by Isabelle Filliozat and (I couldn't find the title in english)talk about children (and parents) emotions!
Exactly what I had been "discovered" about myself..and I think that is a book that everybody should read. It's one of those books that can help you to discover certain reaction that sometimes we cannot understand about ourself and just let pass by....a book that can help heal our soul!

Hello there!

Hi everybody! After almost one year from the last entry (really? I can't believe how fast has passed!) I found a picture with the frame I made with my daughter with the shells we collect last year on the beach...and just reconnect with the last are the picture!! Better late then never ;D
During the last year I have swapped the sewing needle for the acupunture needle! And now I'm starting the second year! I really love it and I can't believe why the so-called "Occidental Medicine" doesn't want to merge his knowledge with the MTC....all in favour of the farmaceutical usual, money rules..
