Chances are you might not look like Barbie. (It’s not her fault she’s so beautiful:P) And that you might be a fan of some women magazines. And that, even you are all grown up, smart and serious – not to mention extremely hot:)- you might think that your legs are too fat/too chicken-like/too short/too strange/too manly. That’s all fine.  What is not fine at all is that you say no to skirts. Not as long as there are so many fun ways of dressing up. OTHER than pants. Or jeans.  All you need is a little knowledge (know your body…

One of my problems lately was fining really special buttons. I have a lot already, various colours and shapes, some with I am so in love that I cannot decide on what to use them. I bought a big bag of plastic beads and I made some coasters and pins, then I made some buttons from them. This is an example. If you like it, please  see the tutorial below:)   Watch my video!

You might not be surprised to find out that The Mighty Internet is actually a good resource for sewing info and tips. I remember my own excitement a few years ago, when I discovered www.craftster.org. I thought I have reached heaven.

I am now enjoying a simple glass of beer and thinking of Mr Musso’s delicatessen. Mmm.

One thing I noticed in the last few weeks living here, is that Barcelona is full of beautiful, sexy, tatooed girls. And I’m not talking about a 4/4 cm tatoo, of tribals or (fake) chinese symbols, I am talking about BIG tatoos. About floral, colorful, arm-dressing, neck-covering, back-loving allegories. Some visibly floral, art deco like, other more abstract, but mostly just nice to look at. tatoo, originally uploaded by nelo2006.

Or at least for mine. I’ve been testing it for a month and a half now for the shop blog and now I am convinced that if you need a simple design, to show the best pictures of your arts/ crafts, this is not it. It does not adapt to the width or height of your screen so you can find yourself scrolling just to see the whole picture.
