Girls and Tatoos

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.

Monotone wordpress theme is not good for craft blogs

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. Linking between objects is almost limited to next next, previous, which starts to be disturbing after a while. Even the background color change is strange for me because the color chose in the background usually does not contrast with the image itself. Plus the color changing does not give it a fun, crips aspect, but a rather discontinuous one.

It’s hard to see the text and now I woudn’t use if even for a photoblog.

Now, as a disclaimer, this is just my personal experience with a theme I wanted to use in a certain way. I am not saying that the theme itself is bad, actually it’s pretty good and this is why i chose it in the firstplace.

I am now testing DePo Masthead, an interesting three column theme, where the columns are for posts and the navigation is much easier. Happy now, will see how it works.

The Turtle Has Landed

Hello. The turtle is in Barcelona now. The weather is delightful and ideas come from everywhere. My sewing machine stayed home and the separation has become almost unbearable. Sniff sniff.

There are some shops I want to visit that I heard of from Craftster.

Mrrr. The turtle has to party now. See u soon:)

Sky Turtle plus Boogieshop = love

From now on you can find some of my stuff (felt pins, wallets, pouches and all kind of clutches, bags and schoolbags in the handmade art Boogie Shop.

For a great shop owner and wonderfull eye candies go to Bucharest, at No 101 Calea Victoriei Street.

Great for presents of self-treats!

Hello all

Hello all, and welcome to my new home.

Some of you are probably here because they know me from the joint venture Fancy Pancy.

This will be a blog dedicated to all seen, made, dreamed crafts.

They are both in construction so please bear with me for a little while.
