Knit, stitch, purl, and twirl. I could do these things over and over and not get tired at all. Not that I am fond of living a sedentary life, it is just that I really have this deep passion for pattern, decoration, and order that I do not mind sitting all day just to finish a certain work of art.
Perhaps I was greatly influenced by our old handicrafts business when I was a kid. Seeing people sewing, cutting, and stuffing every single day of my life in all the corners of our then home cannot but infuse all the love for art into my system.
I still remember how it felt like waking up in the morning feeling extra jazzy because I know I will be designing an Easter egg, making a Valentine’s Day card, or molding a clay in school. I do not know why but It was the colorful art materials, and not any sort of dolls or toy castles, that brought my imagination to fairy tale land.
So at a young age, I managed to turn ordinary earrings to dangling ones, create beaded trinkets, and even decorate the clothes of my dolls.
Now that I have grown older, I realize that there is no other hobby that I would want to go back to but crafting. So with the availability of my old embroidery flosses and with the recent loom band craze, I find myself working on friendship bracelets again.
Pardon the overly colorful and maybe even eye-straining pictures. Hope you enjoyed looking at them nevertheless.
Oh and just an additional note, these bracelets are not for sale. They are meant to be given to people who are special to me. So just you wait because you might receive one. ;-)
