Rainny, rainny day....

Again, I let time slip by before I manage to post again. I have decided though, to compromise myself to do at least one post a week. It is perfectely doable, as long as I organize myself!

After a period of almost getting desperate due to the fact that I don´t seem to find a professional path through which I am able to express my creativity (or a professional path at all, as Spain has been having high levels of unemployment for the last year) I decided I would stop feeling sorry for myself and actually fight for things. At the moment we (my love and I) are not in the situation of having to panic about money. We still have some money saved, and though it won´t last forever, we know we can manage for some time. Why not use that time to actually invest energies on my dream, that is to sell handmade by me? So, that´s what´s been taking most of my time lately. I´ve been felting and dyeing and sewing, and some pleasent results are starting to come out from the effort :)

Also, I have started a choregraphic residency for a dance solo choreographed and performed by me :) It will last this week only, but presentation will only be in March, so I am not overworried.

Other then that, we went to Madrid last weekend, which was lovely. I have bought the loveliest dress, reduced from 75 € to 6€ (yes, you read it right), in teal silk, which I am dying to show you all, but I need to have the courage to dress it and take a picture in it (is not exactely a winter outfit, and temperatures around the house are about 10 degrees celsius)

We´ve been having a hard winter, but thankfull not as drastic as it seems to be in other points of the planet. Still, I long for central heating.....the chill burns in my fingers and toes are starting to be very annoying!

I wish you all a wonderful week. Let us all try to use our romanticism to help us survive through the winter. I am lucky this part of the world, spring should be just around the corner (give it a month or two...)

:) wellcome to my room of wonders.

Because we went to some friend´s house to have lunch, because my friend is such an inspiring woman, in terms of many things, including clothing, and also because they have central heating in the house, I was inspired to at least think twice about what I was wearing and try to compose a bit my outfit. Ok, not a bit effort, one must assume, but at least I put a skirt on! Yaaay...... :P

Anyway, we had a lovely lunch, and ate something I´ve never eaten before. Apparentely it is a french dish, it´s called racklette (or something like that) and it consists of pieces of cheese (different delicious varities) put over a hot plate until melted and eaten with baked potatoes. Really nice.

The lunch did me good. I have been getting slightly depressed over the lack of jobs around here and the uncertainty of our lives, so it was good to get out of the house and socialize a bit. I do miss having more friends around.

Anyway, the last picture is one of the necklace of my next collection, yet to be put on sale on my etsy shop. I like the way they are turning out and I like that I am risking something in my creation process...I am not sure if there will be anyone interested in this sort of necklace though. Any opinions will be wellcome (even if to say the necklace is rubish hehehehe).

:) wellcome to my room of wonders.

Hi all!

I´ve been more or less away from this blog, partly because I was so busy with other things (the busiest unemployed in this world, that´s what I call myself), partly because I was away during part of the summer, and then, when winter doesn´t seem so exciting to post about clothes. I love winter clothes, don´t get me wrong. But we live in a place where there´s no central heating and I spend most of my days wraped around so many layers that if I took a picture of myself you´d only see my head coming out of a ball of wool ..... :P

Also, I have been crafting a lot and I finally opened my own online store...yaaaaah!

But yesterday the temperatures was milder, and although I haven´t gotten back my will to think too much about setting up my outfits (I am not an elegant winter dresser...), we went for a ride, and I thought I would share with you some of the shots. And even though my priority on dressing is still, during these months, keeping myself warm, I will try to start posting again, as I have made some good finding in terms of clothes throughout these few months.

:) wellcome to my room of wonders.
