Sweet and Scar Hearts

After a nice two-week break which helped me clear my head, I'm finally ready for action! It's always a good idea to take a break when you feel like your brain is about to reach a meltdown - the best action for me was to change my surroundings, take a trip and to forbid myself to even think about work. So now on return I'm full of fresh ideas for blogging and crafting, but today I'll just post some crafts I've been holding up on.

"Box 'o' Chocolate" brooches and rings. This was my first complex design about two years ago and finally I put it op for sale. At first I wanted to make a necklace but never got around finding the right design. Chains, ribbons - it all looked so off, so the charms just sat in my craft box for month. So recently I dropped the necklace idea altogether and decided that a nice brass colored ring or pin base will work lovely. It's very interesting to work with each, since I try not to make matching candies in the same box.

"Love Letter from Paris" is also one of my very first designs, and I even sold a few when I didn't even set up a shop yet. But only recently I gave it a proper photo shoot and will be happy to finally add it to my stock again. So romantic and it looks so light and airy.

Victory Day

Today is greatest national celebrations, so, even though I was taking a break from work and bloging, I couldn't miss this. For my country this day wasn't only the end of WWII, but of the Great Patriotic War, so it has a very special meaning. The bittersweet day to remember all those who didn't return so that the world would be free, a celebration with tears in the eyes.
