Snails…

Hello Guys,

Had some free time, and I decided to make something different now. First of all, I have started to draw some snails. Unfortunately they went to swim after my son doodled it… so I cannot show you them, but I’ve choose one to create it in some colors with felt. First two are here, made them as key chains. I hope, you like it 🙂

So here I am…

So.. hello there,

I am still here, but I am living my creative life a bit less nowadays. My son has flu, he run a temperature, he is sleepy and he is in the tantrum all the time. He is not sleeping well – this night we slept only 4 hours. So… I don’t have time – and mood – for sewing or embroidering.

Last time when I wrote, I was prepared for a meeting in my workplace. It went all right, however I did not get any new job opportunities there. In Hungary, there is hard to find a “working from home” job. No problem, I am looking for new challenges, and I will have time to fill my project list for 2013… I am too slow in that…

I’ve made a small pendant, to make some progress. Here it is:

Busy days…

Hello Guys,

I have a lot to do nowadays, and I had to collect my creative sets, and put it to a dark room. This is the only way to rethink my life, and concentrate on important things. There were a lot changes in my workplace, I had to fight a bit… and it’s not over yet. I am working from home (mainly administration and marketing stuffs), and i’s always hard to try keep in people’s mind who actually doesn’t see you day-by-day. I am at home – in maternity leave – for almost 2 years, and there are a lot of new people who I work with, but we never met.  I have made a presentation today, and tomorrow will be the big day: will see if I still have my place over there… Have to travel to the office (have to leave behind my son with my father), and meet with my ‘big boss’. I have hard feelings, my heart is beating in my stomach… hope it ends soon…

Now, I had to grab some felt, and make something to clear my mind a bit… Here is what I’ve made: a grey-purple felt brooch.

Tomorrow, I’ll be a bit wiser…

Had some time again … :)

Yesterday, we have a day off at my husband’s mother, so she is playing with my son, and we have some time to lay down a bit. I created a lot of new things, and finished some others too. I fallen in love in the felt-denim brooch, so I will make a lot more of that. I think, I am in the way to find my style 🙂

So, here are the older ones, a purple and a pink one:

Then, I have found some scraps from my “sunshine” set:

Then… here are my newest ones; my favorite is the blue-grey one, because it’s from my old jeans – I really like the look of this one. 🙂 Which is your favorite?

I have started to upload them to my shop 🙂

New things – with search ad results

Hello Guys,

First of all, I have started a search ad campaign in my shop, and I am shocked about the results. Not that I have much clicks, but look at this:

search results

 

.. I have more than 50 items in my shop, and only 2 items, which are using some Hungarian folk embroidery thing on themselves. I decided to make one more (with Kalocsai embroidery design), but I am not satisfied with the result, so… did not make any more.

Then… just get back to my style… what I like more. Here is what I really like:
