If I ever decide to post some of my designs, it will be here… Keep an eye out for them!

Playing with ink!

Hello everyone! I guess this post can be included in the Handmade Life category (yay!!), and it’s a good thing, since it’s been a long time since I last posted about that sort of topic… so, let me place the pretty title below, and let’s begin! On Monday, I went to a screen printing workshop at The Book Club. I had never done screen printing before, but it’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while now. To play with inks and fabric, and create something unique? Totally my thing! At first, I was going with a friend, but I finally went there on my own, which is something I tend to do quite often lately, just try stuff by myself and, you know, jump in there and see what happens. I arrived early, and it was quite intimidating. I had never been in that place before, and there were people sitting around in groups, drinking and chatting, and then me. What do you do when you’re on your own, in a bar you have …

Update on progress

Wow… This is taking me forever!! As you know, I’m working on the design of my blog, and some of the changes you can already see. However, there are other changes that I still need to finish! Here’s a small sneak peek of what’s to come, so you see the amount of effort needed… You have already seen the logo/header of the blog (woohoo!) And maybe you have had a quick look at the Sneak Peek section, which is now displaying images in a more beautiful way (I think, anyway, what do you think?) rather than in the previous gallery… I think this look works quite well, doesn’t it? But hey, there are more new features coming soon… So, what will be new, hopefully very soon? There will be a new menu appearing on the top right corner! You can’t contain your excitement… I know right? All the pages in there are almost done, so I’m hoping to publish it all in the next days… Although knowing me, I might still make a few more …

This one is a very short post to show you guys something cool. You know I’m into photography, and even though I’m not a great photographer, I’m always taking pictures (not as many as I would like to, though!) I recently downloaded Instagram for my Sony Ericsson (oh, yeah!) but unfortunately, my stream (right, I’m not sure if that’s how it’s called, I’m guessing I’m just borrowing that name from Flickr) looks quite empty for the moment. Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is that as a profile picture, I posted a photo I took some weeks ago with my phone, with an app that allows you give your photos some vintage look. I published the image as my profile, both on Facebook and Instagram, and my friend Jeff saw it and he liked it. Jeff owns a company called inksquire (sorry Jeff, I’m not sure if that goes with a capitalΒ i or not), and he does art on images. He asked if he could work on the photo, so I sent it to …
